The HillBender's WhoGrass show is a chronological journey of The Who's legendary catalog through the wood and wire of bluegrass instrumentation. Framed as a follow-up to The HillBenders 2015 acoustic interpretation of The Who's TOMMY, WhoGrass now gives the audience a career spanning twist on one of Rock 'n' Roll's greatest bands. From the early hits all the way through The Who's discography and even a peek into Pete Townshend's solo career, the rolling banjo, intense dobro percussion, and thunderous vocals have even the biggest Who fan pumping their fist and singing along!
The HillBenders formed in April of 2008, and still tours with the original lineup The HillBenders took to Performing Arts venues, festivals and clubs all over the US by storm in 2015 with their critically-acclaimed “Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry.” They followed up the Tommy tour with a year of successful dates joining Keller Williams for “PettyGrass.” (Tom Petty hits)
2021 will find The HillBenders continuing their firmly established presence as one of the most energetic and engaging progressive acoustic bands with their hit laden “WhoGrass” show, as well as outstanding original music from their fourth studio album, appropriately and eponymously titled “The HillBenders.”
Regardless of which show The HillBenders present, or a mash up of all of them, they deliver a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals. They are one of the few bluegrass groups that recognize their ability to bridge the gap between the common music consumer and the bluegrass genre, selecting material that defies any hillbilly stigmas.
How it's going to work:
- One table or lawn space seats up to four people (tables cannot be combined and larger parties need to make multiple reservations and will have to be seated in groups of 4). The Artist will be performing on the Highmark Blue Shield Community Stage on the Air Products Town Square. Guests with lawn spaces will be able to enjoy the performance on a digital screen which will be broadcasted to from the stage.
- There's a $10 minimum per person.
- Yes, you still need to bring a mask. No, you don't need to wear it at your table (keep reading for all the super fun safety guidelines listed below).
- Yes! You'll be able to enjoy your favorite adult beverages with dinner (we recommend the new beer "Flight," from our friends at Yuengling).
- Both table and lawn spot tickets are good for single parties of up to four people, with campus attendance limited to ensure proper safe social distancing and follow all CDC, state and city health & safety guidelines. Air Products Town Square guests can enjoy dinner available from the ArtsQuest Center menu. Levitt Pavilion lawn spots will be spaced accordingly to follow safe social distancing and food and beverages can be ordered via the Mack Truck Stop and bar on the lawn. No outside food or drink is allowed... because that's how restaurants work.
