Yonder Mountain strings along at MontBleu

By March 13, 2014

A one-night-only show of progressive banjo rolling, mandolin chopping bluegrass music with the Yonder Mountain String Band and special guest The Brothers Comatose is Thursday, April 3 at MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa.

Blending bluegrass, rock and countless other influences, Yonder as fans know them, transcends genres by pioneering a singular sound with its traditional string instrument lineup.

The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 the day of the show and available through Ticketfly.com or by calling the MontBleu box office at 888-829-7630.

The Colorado-based foursome has crisscrossed the country over the past dozen years playing at festivals and rock clubs and even the Democratic National Convention in Denver opening for President Barack Obama.

Yonder’s improvisational method melds bluegrass, string music and rock and roll to create a unique, wholly original style of its own.

“We’re looking at music from our own experiences and doing the best job possible,” said Yonder’s banjo stylist Dave Johnston. “What could be more pure than making your own music?”

Returning to the MontBleu Theater for the second time this year after recently appearing with Devil Makes Three, The Brothers Comatose is a rising folk, bluegrass Americana band known for their sing-along, stomp-along acoustic stylings. Despite their name, the band is anything but as they’ve been known to toss inflatable alligators into the crowd and hand out chopsticks for audience-percussion-participation.

MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa appeals to both the traditional gamer and the late-night club-hopper with its stylish sophistication and attractive, metro-cool atmosphere to create a complete casino-resort experience.
