Grateful Bluegrass Boys
Grateful Bluegrass Boys
Grateful Bluegrass Boys is a string band that plays traditional Bluegrass versions of Classic Rock favorites from bands such as the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Eagles, Rolling Stones and more.

These songs, combined with classic Bluegrass and Country tunes, consistently have audiences singing and dancing along the whole show.

The band consists of Aaron Redner, violin, mandolin, and vocals,who is known for his work with Hot Buttered Rum with whom he toured for 13 years.

David Thom, who fronts the David Thom Band and Vintage Grass, plays mandolin and guitar, and sings like an angel. He also spent two years working for David ‘Dawg’ Grisman.

Isaac Cantor, banjo, also plays in Dusty Green Bones Band. He is one of the finest young jam-jo pickers on the scene.

Ben Jacobs, accordion, can be seen with Poor Man’s Whiskey and Achilles Wheel. Ben is a highly sought-after keyboard player and we are honored to have him play with us!

We have a rotating cast of bass players that include Bryan Horne (Hot Buttered Rum), Aspen Stevenson (Poor Man’s Whiskey), Pam Brandon (Belle Monroe & Her Brewglass Boys), and Russel Simon (Rusty Stringfield).

Timber!
Timber!
Timber!, a highly energetic bluegrass band from Boulder, CO, consists of Travis "Watermelon Hat Guy" on bass, Erik "Ginger McGee" Gustafson on guitar, Caitlin "Thanks, I like to play" Anderson on fiddle, and Chad "Sweet Hair" Martens on mandolin.

"We had nothing in common but the desire to play music, preferably in exchange for beer and whiskey. Oh and the fact that we all lived in Boulder."
-Caitlin Anderson

In the Spring of 2013, an unlikely trio decided to form a band. They were together at the Twisted Pine bluegrass pick and Travis Lawson stood with his bass and told Erik Gustafson, guitar player, that the best way to meet the ladies was to be in a band. And therefore the notion was born. Upon further discussion Travis suggested they add a fiddle player, and James agreed that "What's her face" could make a positive addition. Thus Caitlin Anderson, fiddle player, was invited to Timber!

While each member of Timber! had very different musical backgrounds, they found that they truly enjoyed the combination. Erik's songwriting and more jamgrassy history opened them to another style of song. Caitlin added a classical element, and tried to stop calling her fiddle a violin, and Travis brought pure style. They began performing around Boulder, mostly at BBQ venues, and built a strong repertoire.

However one thing was missing. A mandolin! Luckily, they convinced their friend Chad Martens to join the band, and then Timber! was five. With this combination of bass, guitar, banjo, mandolin, and fiddle, Timber! now plays everything from BBQ joints to breweries to beer festivals around the greater Boulder and Denver area. They have a propensity for fastass bluegrass and almost unnatural amounts of energy that will be sure to have you dancin' everywhere.

Additional skills and interests:
Travis - Uppin' your stock; synchronized swimming
Erik - Curling; bringing da funk
Chad - Reciting Dante's Inferno in Italian; jello shots
