Bluegrass Band Brings Comedy and Fun to Rhythm City Casino
It feels good to start making concert announcements again. Even if it's for a band you may not have ever heard before.
Rhythm City Casino Resort has announced The Cleverlys will be performing Thursday, January 21, 2021, 7:00 pm and if you aren't ready to go hear music in person, there's a livestream option we'll tell you about in later in this story.
The Cleverlys are a one-of-a-kind comedy/music blend coming from the remote part of the Ozark Mountains, near Cane Spur, Arkansas.
Digger Cleverly, along with his nephews Ricky Lloyd, Sock, DVD and Cub, make up The Cleverlys. They have traveled the globe, if the globe only consisted of the United States, performing at music venues and some of the nation’s largest festivals like Stagecoach, Telluride, CMA Music Fest and even the Grand Ole Opry.
Here's how the New York Times describes this band, "If Earl Scruggs, Dolly Parton, and Spinal Tap spawned a litter of puppies, it would be the Cleverlys.”
Their band bio suggests you not be fooled by this faux-family band – they are all accomplished musicians putting their unique bluegrass spin on cover songs from any genre.
The Cleverlys’ set list includes genius arrangements of tunes like Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” a medley of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity,” and Flo Rida’s “Low” that recently went viral on Facebook, with over 11 million views from a local TV appearance.
Rolling Stone Magazine says Digger’s “out-of-date eyeglasses are as thick as his hillbilly accent, but whose comic sensibilities are a hilariously off-kilter hybrid of Homer & Jethro and The Office.”
You can check them out in person or from the comfort of your couch. Tickets are $25 each and must be bought in sets of 2 or 4 or you can watch on livestream for $10 if you'd rather not leave the safety and comfort of your house.
