Out of the Blue Livestream Series with The Northern Grey

Tuesday - June, 30 @ 6:00pm

Watch LIVE on our Facebook page!

The Northern Grey is an eclectic family band consisting of keyboard, guitar, mandolin and vocals. We’re from Maine and have all played together in various groups in the past and we started this band last year in order to play together more constantly since we enjoy it so much. We play mainly covers of songs we all enjoy which includes a variety of genres while trying to give each song our own sound. We’ve begun writing a few original songs and will hopefully continue to grow in that direction but for now we cover several groups from progressive-bluegrass style bands like "I’m With Her," "The Punch Brothers" and "Joy Kills Sorrow" to more rock and pop covers from bands like "Mumford and Sons," “Adele," "State Radio," "The Strokes" and more. Our main goal is just to have fun and play good music for anyone who wants to listen!
