Green Mountain Bluegrass Band
Dennis Berck – rhythm guitar, lead, vocals
Michael Bray – acoustic bass, vocals
Chuck Holloway – 5-String banjo, vocals
Tyler Lynn – mandolin/lead, vocals
This Eugene based bluegrass band has been together for close to five years now. All four members are well-seasoned musicians who have been playing music most of their lives. This bluegrass band offers audiences tight vocal harmonies, and tight instrumentation. Forming through a variety of friendships and a combined love of the genre each member either teaches as their “day job” or performs. One of the members, banjo player Chuck Holloway, is so devoted to this genre he started the Tuesday night bluegrass jam at Sam Bond’s Garage back in 1998. Often on Tuesday nights that is where he can be found playing his 5-string banjo.
Songs like “First Whippoorwill” and “Flora Lilly of the West” are staples for the band’s performances across the Northwest from the Sacajawea Bluegrass Festival in Pasco, WA to the High and Dry Bluegrass Festival in Bend, OR.
