Greensky Bluegrass was back at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee, WI on Tuesday night where the band and their fans celebrated the end of a decade while ushering in the start of the next. Coming off Sunday and Monday night performances at the Milwaukee venue, Greensky pulled out all the stops for the fans in attendance for an excellent New Year’s Eve show to remember.

Greensky went without a support act for their three-set show–not counting the dazzling baby-blue suits worn by the members. The band opened with “Past My Prime”, then worked their way into a “What’s Left of the Night” into “Hold On” segue. “The Radio Blues” them followed, before a rendition of Cris Jacobs‘ “Bone Digger” took fans deep into the opening set. The quintet also included a tease of The Stooges‘ “Death Trip” during “Bone Digger”.

A string of original tunes, “I’d Probably Kill You”, “Demons”, a rare “Beauty and Pain”, and “All Four” closed out the first set.

Paul HoffmanAnders BeckMichael BontDave Bruzza, and Mike Devol quickly returned to the stage for the second half of the show which opened with the Joshua Davis-penned “Dustbowl Overture”. They tucked a cover of Pink Floyd‘s “Run Like Hell” neatly between their original “Run or Die” before easing their way into John Hartford‘s “I’m Still Here”, which contained a tease of Phish‘s “Possum”.

A country cover of “Hit Parade of Love” preceded standalone originals “Windshield” and “It’s Not Mine Anymore”. The Hoffman-penned “Jaywalking” segued into the JJ Cale original “After Midnight” to top-off set two.

The lengthy third set took fans on a decade-crossing jamgrass journey with “Courage for the Road”, a take on Yonder Mountain String Band‘s “Follow Me Down to the Riverside”, the traditional New Year’s anthem “Auld Lang Syne”, “Follow Me Down to the Riverside”, and “Courage for the Road”. Their original “Take Cover” sat before a take on Spencer Davis Group‘s “Gimme Some Lovin'”.

Greensky Bluegrass finished its third and final set with four originals beginning with “A Letter to Seymour”, and continuing with “Before Bring Out Your Dead” into “Bring Out Your Dead” and finally a set-closing “Leap Year”.

Greensky still had a bit left in the tank following the third set, and they made their way back to the stage for a two-song encore beginning with a rendition of the “Laverne and Shirley Theme” which saw Dave and Paul share a mic. Their tour manager Guido Batista event joined in for the finale performance of “What You Need”.
