The hillBenders: The Who’s Tommy

Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry
Released June 2015
Compass Records

hillbenders poster“Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball”  Maybe not your standard bluegrass lyric, but a line known by all the world from the biggest rock opera of all time, The Who’s Tommy.  45 years after its original release, this classic of classic rock has now been fully realized as a full length bluegrass tribute featuring Springfield, Missouri’s The HillBenders, the dynamic bluegrass quintet from Springfield, MO with high-octane shows, tight harmonies and stunning instrumental prowess, which has been winning fans and making waves. And they took on a gargantuan task. “Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry” is the Who’s classic and mighty rock opera cast solely in string instruments: mandolin, bass, guitar, banjo and dobro. The execution, vocally and instrumentally, is incredible. Conceived and produced by SXSW co-founder and longtime musician/producer Louis Jay Meyers, this Bluegrass Opry brings a new perspective to Tommy while paying total respect to its creators.

The Addam’s Family

Addams for websiteHundreds of years ago the Addam’s Family ancestors came from the old country and settled on a plot of land in what is now New York’s Central Park.  This was, of course, long before it was a park.  The loveable family of creepy kooks is still alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in the park.  However, the family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, is in turmoil.  Their daughter Wednesday, now 18, falls in love.  When she invites her new boyfriend, Lucas Beineke, over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addam’s household, cahos (including everything from an amorous giant squid to mixed-up potions to a scorching tango) ensues.
