Athens Theater Presents Florida State Bluegrass Band Nov 8

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Florida State Bluegrass BandErnie Evans and The Florida State Bluegrass Band represent what fans expect from bluegrass music today-an ability to bridge the gap between contemporary and traditional styles. Known for their strong lead vocals, classic hits, and ability to entertain their audiences, The Florida State Bluegrass Band is rapidly gaining a widespread fan base across the United States.

Ernie Evans is a third-generation musician with the rare ability to play multiple instruments, sing lead and sing both low and high harmonies. His musical vocabulary includes Jazz, Pop, and Country, as well. This collective experience has made a major contribution to his ability to lead and orchestrate the now nationally touring band "Florida State Bluegrass Band".

Ernie toured recently as a member of Grammy® Nominee Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike, Grammy® Award Winner Vassar Clements, and Motown legends “The Platters". His music has taken him all over the world throughout his career, and when he is not on stage he can be found broadcasting in St. Augustine, FL at WFCF 88.5FM, as well as on World Wide Bluegrass with his co-host, wife, and band mate Debi Evans, on their own shows, airing weekly.

Athens Theatre, 124 N Florida Ave, DeLand, FL 32720. (386) 736-1500
