The Rochester Opera House, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is pleased to present The HillBenders on Friday, July 14th at 8 pm.
Formed in April of 2008, and still touring with the original lineup The HillBenders took Performing Arts venues, festivals, and clubs all over the US by storm in 2015 with their critically-acclaimed “Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry.” They followed up the Tommy tour with a year of successful dates joining Keller Williams for “PettyGrass.”
The HillBenders are continuing their firmly established presence as one of the most energetic and engaging progressive acoustic bands with their hit-laden “WhoGrass” show, as well as outstanding original music from their fourth studio album, appropriately and eponymously titled “The HillBenders.”
Regardless of which show The HillBenders present, or a mash-up of them all, they deliver a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals. They are one of the few bluegrass groups that recognize their ability to bridge the gap between the common music consumer and the bluegrass genre, selecting material that defies any hillbilly stigmas.
Doors will open at 7:30 pm. Concessions and drinks will be available for sale. Tickets are available at the Box Office and www.rochesteroperahouse.com.
