Do you enjoy bluegrass music? Well, what about “BOO-grass?”
Chart-topping artists The Dixie Bee-Liners will bring their award-winning music — and a healthy dose of Halloween fun — to the Leapin’ Lizard Lounge this Monday, Oct. 31. Concert-goers are encouraged to dress up in their favorite costumes and participate in the Halloween spirit!
“It started out as a Halloween gag,” remarks lead singer Brandi Hart, “but the Zom-Bee-Liners were a huge hit. That first Halloween, fans actually begged us to cancel tour plans and stay an extra night, so that they could come back and bring their friends.”
Though Monday’s concert will be full of spooky fun, The Dixie Bee-Liners take their music seriously. The ensemble has received worldwide acclaim for their innovative blend of traditional and contemporary sounds. The band has been heard on BBC Radio, The Food Network, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, SkyArts Television, and hundreds of radio stations in North America and Europe. They were named Roots Music Association’s 2008 Bluegrass Artist of the Year, beating out such musical giants as Merle Haggard and Alison Krauss. Their 2008 cd RIPE achieved four #1’s on the bluegrass charts, and 2009’s Susanville was deemed “one of the most revolutionary bluegrass releases in recent memory” by Country Standard Time. The group is currently at work on a brand-new studio release, set for January.
“We’ll be performing traditional bluegrass songs, as well our fans’ favorite DBL originals, plus brand-new music from our forthcoming cd,” explains mandolinist Buddy Woodward. “Come out out! We’re just DYING to eat… er… meet you.”
Monday’s show starts at 8pm, and tickets are $10. The Leapin’ Lizard Lounge is located at 726 Main Street in Covington, KY. For more information, please call 513.509.0951, or visit The Dixie Bee-Liners on Facebook.
