When the Yonder Mountain String Band isn’t busy headlining festivals curated by them or organizing fun-in-the-sun Mexican Riviera trips with the Stringdusters, Railroad Earth & Leftover, they occasionally get to play a summertime show.

Okay, okay, the preceding sentence was an exaggeration… at least the part about “occasionally playing a show” was. YMSB never leaves tour. And why should they? With an ever-growing base of fans and a seemingly secure spot amongst the top in the jam niche as a whole, the Nederland natives are on top of the world and appear to be extremely grateful to be there. This is perhaps best evidenced the fact that while every show is not “A+” worthy, one never leaves with the words “they looked like they didn’t even give a shit” crossing his lips. To the contrary, each outing leaves most pondering how they (particularly front man Jeff Austin) are able to extend so much energy on a nightly basis and remain healthy. Yet, they do.

On this night in Brooklyn, the four piece string section was met by a very sold-out Brooklyn Bowl house that was prepped for the first Big Apple Yonder outing of the year and it is safe to say that all left fully sated.
