Greg does a great job hosting these open mic events with his fine radio voice and very good karaoke singing.
Nothin Fancy is, at once, one of the most entertaining and busiest bands in the business. With a huge catalog of songs developed over their twenty-some year history, they're one of the few bands that can successfully pull off two days of performances without repeating themselves. In fact, we've seen them at three festivals this winter, they've never repeated a show, although some of their songs are frequently requested. Each member is accomplished at his instrument while playing a well-defined role within the band. Chris Sexton, both a fine bluegrass fiddler and classical violinist, has become increasingly central in recent years, and can be looked to for subtly mordant comments as well as super fiddling. We always find that this is a band we look forward to seeing on the stage, at their table, or around the grounds of a festival. I'm truly befuddled at why this band hasn't received recognition from IBMA.
