Dan Band on The Opry

The Dan Tyminski Band - Barry Bales, Adam Steffey, Dan Tyminski, Justin Moses, Ron StewartThe Dan Tyminski Band will appear on Saturday night’s (2/23) edition of The Grand Ole Opry.

This widely-heralded new group, whose debut release is expected on Rounder this spring, is headed by former Alison Krauss & Union Station and Lonesome River band stalwart Tyminski on guitar and lead vocals, along with Barry Bales on bass, Adam Steffey on mandolin, Justin Moses on fiddle and Ron Stewart on banjo.

It has been suggested that this bunch might be described as The Bluegrass Album Band of their generation, and that may well be true. With the exception of Moses, whose relative unknown status is about to be shattered by his association with this group, all the members hold the rank of player’s player on their respective instruments, and Dan’s is among the most recognizable male voices in and around bluegrass.

Brance and I expect to see them live here in Roanoke next week, and will post with our impressions after that show.

Look for Dan & Co. during the 7:30-8:00 and 10:30-11:00 p.m. Opry segments on Saturday. The show is available over the air in the Nashville market on WSM AM 650, and simulcast worldwide via online streaming at wsmonline.com.

Should you miss it live, highlights from the show will be available in the WSM audio archives next week.
