'Brooklyn-based Gangstagrass is headed to Vail tonight, fresh on the heels of their newly released album, Broken Hearts & Stolen Money. The Emmy-nominated band is known for their “rap‘n’grass” renditions, pairing the sounds of classic bluegrass with contemporary hip-hop.
'“It always catches my attention when bands converge previously non-meshed styles, (that) takes guts and vision,” said Scotty Stoughton, owner of Bonfire Entertainment and the show promoter. “Couple that with positive reviews from artists like the MarchForth Marching Band and national promoter friends, it was a no brainer to bring their energetic and unique live show to Vail.”
'The band’s founder, Rench (his stage name), said he has been working on combining the music styles for more than a decade.' (Vail Daily article).
