SPECIAL NOTE: Marilyn would admit - it’s been a long time coming… EC-CHAP is thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with these outstanding musicians! Grass Routes brings a classic bluegrass genre - while infusing a unique sound and originality that make their musical collection their own. Another example of the outstanding talent we have in our own backyard! We are pleased to present Grass Routes to The Packing House stage.
GRASS ROUTES is a Connecticut five-piece bluegrass band. It is a well established group that has been delighting audiences for many years with a repertoire ranging from traditional bluegrass standards to folk and original and contemporary songs all performed in their own unique bluegrass style.
Members of the band include Joe Lemeris, banjo and dobro; Bill Reveley, mandolin and fiddle; Marilyn Toback-Reveley, rhythm guitar; Tim St. Jean, song writer, mandolin, fiddle, concertina, lead guitar; Joe DeLillo, upright bass.
Skillful instrumental work and strong vocals give Grass Routes their own characteristic sound. Showcasing especially tight harmonies, vocals include duets to four part harmonies. What makes Grass Routes unique is that each member sings lead. With five lead vocalists, Grass Routes presents a different style and material with each vocal arrangement.
Grass Routes has appeared on radio and television and performed at major concerts and bluegrass festivals throughout the Northeast. Grass Routes currently has five recording projects. Their musical style appeals to audiences of all ages.
