Greensky Bluegrass, a Michigan bluegrass quintet, fuses jam band-like influences into their unique style of newgrass music.

Greensky Bluegrass appears relaxed, almost listless, on stage. But the ear contradicts the eye as soon as their fingers pluck the first strings. In a show of careful craftsmanship, the youthful Michigan outfit served up a sonic smorgasbord Sunday evening at the Westcott Theater.

Review: Keller Williams put on a show Friday, literally. His creative and diverse one-man jam band had the crowd on their feet, craving for more.

Remember that kid in elementary school who was the first one to figure out that he could make a farting noise with his armpit? He was probably the same kid who was figuring out how to make strange sounds with his mouth and imitate animal calls instead of learning his multiplication tables.

Keller Williams was, with almost no shadow of a doubt, that kid and he has perfected making it work to his advantage.
