Freshwater Bluegrass Band

Freshwater Bluegrass Band

Rates: contact for rates


Freshwater is exciting Bluegrass music!

Drawing from a broad spectrum of musical styles and influences, the band consists of an outstanding rock guitarist who always had an appreciation for Bluegrass but never found the right musicians to play it with until now; a rock/jazz/classical musician who secretly hid his love of bluegrass from his friends for years; a Harley rider with an appreciation for big bikes and resophonic guitars and two lifelong Bluegrass fanatics--one of whom is a Wisconsin Hall-of-Fame Track Coach and computer wizard, and the other a multitalented solo performer and pharmaceuticals rep.

From the deepest pools of traditional and contemporary Bluegrass to original material, Freshwater is sure to suit the tastes of every discerning listener.

Freshwater's got it all! With Bill Garvey on guitar and vocals, Don Damaschke on mandolin and vocals, Harvey Riekoff on banjo and vocals, Dennis Waltman on Dobro and vocals and Doug Clum on bass and vocals, this band performs tunes as refreshing as a pure mountain spring and as moving as a western sunset!
