Bluegrass meets Mountain Rock – Buffalo Rose 3-31-12

A bowl of ice cream and leftover birthday cake, letting the adrenaline gradually dissipate from my body. Had another thrilling night out with the band – played a fun show over in Golden at the Buffalo Rose. That place is under new ownership/management and it’s got all the right ingredients to start hitting its stride as a leading destination venue. We advertised tonight’s show as “Bluegrass meets Mountain Rock” and it’s amazing how well those two music genres blend. Dr. Harlan’s Amazing Bluegrass Tonic and That Damn Sasquatch were both a treat with slightly off-beaten-path bluegrass, solid vocals, and lots of great energy. I’m always surprised how well the bluegrass vibe lends itself to the Zen Mustache rock theme. Someday I’ll try to put my thumb on it, and next week we’re up for another encounter at the Oriental Theater sharing the bill with the Highland Ramblers, but for now I’m content to just know that it works.

Here’s how tonight’s Zen M set unfolded:

The Valley
Come Together
Wagon Wheel
Cripple Creek

Call Me Al
Sweet Inspiration
Why You Been Gone So Long
