Nothing green behind the ears when it comes to Key West’s newest band, The Greens.

Each member brings a fresh country sound of Civil War Jazz and jam to the lower Keys.

Steve LaPierre… the popular Key West street painter, burly stand-up bass player and cofounder of the Love Lane Gang, just back from Nashville recording sessions began talking with Key West banjo player, bar none, Jason Shore awhile back.

“We wanted to bring a new thing to Key West, where jazz and old -time roots music would meet,” said LaPierre.

“We love to take an early jazz, blue grass, or gypsy favorite; start it simply and begin to jazz it up, before we jam it out. Every song we do at every gig has its own life and its own sound.”

Lead vocalist, Alex Ball, a 26 year-old fiddler, mandolin and guitar player from the mountain town of Johnson City, Tennessee, along with another 26 year-old wonder, Rob Cook, the popular Duval Street washboard- tie guy on percussion, from Knoxville, round out this quartet of breath-taking musicians.

Grab your entire household; go enjoy some healthy musical fun this week with The Greens.
