“Ever since I was a young boy, I played the silver ball…” Maybe not your standard bluegrass lyrics, but a line known by all the world from the biggest rock opera of all time, The Who’s Tommy . Originally composed by guitarist Pete Townshend, it’s a story about the life of a deaf, dumb, and blind boy, including his life experiences and his relationship with his family.

Several decades later after the album release, the classic rock opera has now been fully realized as a bluegrass tribute featuring The Hillbenders. With their virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals, The Hillbenders are the perfect band to bring the same energy and vision to Tommy as The Who.

 

 



The Hillbenders 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. With their widely varied influences, they are trying to bring unifying songs to bluegrass. “We wanted to pair bluegrass with the other music we grew up with–rock and roll!” says Hillbender Nolan Lawrence.

The CenterStage Hub Series is 21-plus and general admission. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets reserve you a space at a table, but not specific seats. Please note that most Hub tables seat four people.  Because of room size, advance ticket purchase is encouraged.
