Welcome to the Acme Bluegrass Homepage! Thanks for taking the time to come for a visit.
A new year is beginning for Acme Bluegrass and we cannot wait to share it with all of our long time fans and new fans alike!
John, Les, Sebie, and Tracy are all in rare form this year and have made their New Year's resolutions.
John says his New Year's resolution is that he will play his banjo like never before (in tune)...LOL! (John's was going to be that he would finally show us his Hula moves that he learned while in Hawaii, but that didn't seem like it was one he could keep easy enough).
Les resolves to show his face in public and no longer just stand behind a speaker...WOW! You go Les, we all believe in you and know you can keep this resolution!
Sebie's resolution for the new year is that he will talk less on stage(Haa, Haa...oh my I do crack myself up sometimes!)...but we can hope! Can he do it or will this just be another empty New Year's Resolution? Come out and see for yourselves!
Tracy resolves to try and do better at holding a note than she has done in the past...can we count on her to clear her lungs and belt one out...come out and listen to us pick and grin sometime (preferably over and over and over!) and see if she can do it and keep her New Year's resolution!
Now that Acme Bluegrass has finished their re-boot and another year has arrived we cannot wait to show you what we have learned in 2013 and probably some things we only thought we learned. Things we should probably never play in public again, but you know us we cannot be stopped from being Acme Bluegrass hillbillies!
We were never able to re-enlarge Tracy's bass, so she just works with the new shrunken size and makes it work for us! For those who have seen and heard us recently you know what we are talking about. For those of you who have never heard us before or haven't heard us in awhile, come out and see for yourselves what all this means!
Acme Bluegrass is a Colorado Springs based band that loves to perform high energy, hard driving acoustic entertainment. With local icon, John Ramsey on banjo, transplanted native Les Irvin on mandolin, and New Mexico transplants Sebie and Tracy Denson on bass and guitar, this four piece sings and plays with the spirit of true hillbillies.
The band plays a music mix of traditional and contemporary bluegrass with some diversity from artists like Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan and, of course, the king - Elvis. We have also added some new songs from such bluegrass greats as The Monkeys and well...that should at least get your curiosity peaked and get you to stop by sometime and see what you have been missing!
So keep looking around. Go to the bios to find out more about band. And make sure you visit the calendar page to find out about upcoming performances.
Lastly, join the Acme mailing list and we'll forward reminders on performances and updates on the band.
