The Del McCoury Band is one of the most celebrated Bluegrass acts to date, but to say they are just a Bluegrass band would be doing them a disservice. Over their 20-plus years — spanning 13 albums — Del and his boys have explored vast musical categories (including Funk, Gospel and Jam), been covered by a wide array of artists (including The Lovin’ Spoonful and Tom Petty) and have been cited as an influence by artists like Phish and The String Cheese Incident.

For those of you who don’t know, The Del McCoury Band is a family affair.

With sons (Grammy-nominated) Ronnie McCoury on the mandolin and Robbie McCoury on the banjo, their legendary father Del brings it all together with his iconic vocals, catchy songwriting and impressive guitar playing. Think a modern day, backwoods Partridge Family if they had talent and no drugged out redheads (I’m looking at you, Mr. Bonaduce).

Aside his from his stint as rhythm guitarist for Bluegrass legend Bill Monroe, his Grammy for The Company We Keep and his induction into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 2011, Del McCoury and his band are most well known for their exciting and captivating stage show.

So, if you want to hear some terrifyingly good music, head down to the Madison Wednesday and celebrate Dell-O-Ween.

DELLOWEEN was to take place Wednesday, Oct. 31 at Madison Theater in Covington but it has been canceled. Refunds available at point of purchase.
