Welcome to MicroGrass

Americana Music at its Very, Very Best...

We play a tasty blend of Americana and bluegrass music for festivals, clubs, and private events (with a bit of Cajun flavor thrown in just for fun.) Our sweet soaring harmonies are all distilled to their high energy, foot-stomping best. Nothing makes us happier than to get you involved, tapping your feet, singing a tune with us, and leaving you wanting more. We are on time, every time, and will happily work to keep you within budget. We see our role as entertainers who will keep your patrons with you for an enjoyable afternoon or evening.

We take pride in donating a portion of our performance income to our favorite not-for-profit organizations. It's nice to give back, yes?

A note to Festival Promoters & Club Owners

We are professionals in the true sense of the word.  We are on time, every time, will work with you to make your busy lives run more smoothly during your event and work within your budget to provide top notch entertainment to your festival.  When we perform in your club we involve our audience in our performance and strive to keep your patrons engaged.  Our goal is to keep your patrons in your club longer than they would stay without us.  A win-win for all!

What Others are Saying

“MicroGrass brings a rare charm and quality to concerts, in my experience.  It is always a delight to work with prompt, professional, polite musicians who are as attentive to their business as they are to their art.  I believe them to be the quintessential Colorado summer band: always fun, deeply talented, and invested in the health of their community.”

A Warm Summer Afternoon in Denver


The best way to get to know us is to hear us live, so we have some short takes recorded at various places and at various times for you.  No studio gimmicks, no second takes. "Gone At Last" is always a showstopper. "Born to Be With You" is an upbeat vocal song with a subtle Cajun feel. Gordon had a little fun with "Angel from Montgomery," the John Prine classic. We're still trying to figure out how Gordon remembered all the words to "I've Been Everywhere."   "Lincoln Town" and "White Freightliner" are nods to traditional bluegrass music, with up-tempo driving vocals.
