The Punch Brothers are not your average bluegrass band. Their music is anything but expected, and they are constantly pushing musical boundaries — skillfully mixing the sounds of classical, pop and bluegrass for a unique sound all their own.
The acoustic quintet includes mandolinist Chris Thile (who recently took over the popular radio variety show, Live From Here), guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher.
On Tuesday, July 17 the Punch Brothers’ “Big Time Summer Tour” will take place at the Knight Theater Levine Center for the Arts — and for the first time, the band will offer the Big Time Friend Package, including:
- Premium ticket access to a pre-show performance and Q&A
- Two bags of their custom-blended coffee courtesy of Madcap Coffee
- A signed tour poster
- Limited-edition tote bag
- And more!
This eclectic bunch begin creating music together in 2006. Two years later, their first record, Punch, was released. And in 2009, the bluegrass band booked a residency at the popular New York City club, The Living Room.
Since then, the band’s popularity has grown immensely, and they have released four studio albums: Antifogmatic (2010), Who’s Feeling Young Now? (2012), The Phosphorescent Blues (2015) and most recently, All Ashore, which is currently available for pre-order and debuts on July 20.
“Big Time Summer Tour” starts at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17. General admission tickets begin at $25 and the Big Time Friend Package begins at $119. Whichever option you decide to go with, you can get your tickets here.
