The Avett Brothers at Xcel Energy Center

Why see The Avett Brothers?

Bluegrass Icons

The Avett Brothers are a non-traditional bluegrass band that originated in the early 2000s in Concord, North Carolina. Two brothers, Seth and Scott Avett, formed the group after the breakup of the former rock band, Nemo, adding two new members - Bob Crawford on double bass and Joe Kwon on cello. The bad.

Their sound is a refreshingly eclectic blend of traditional instruments - banjos, cello, double bass, and piano to name the most frequently heard sounds - played by true musicians with open and honest lyrics written from the heart. The Avett Brothers have managed to find their fit in between bluegrass and folk-rock genres, a place that makes them as at home at a small music festival as they are on an urban concert stage. Of their eight studio albums, the latest two have gained the band the highest positions on Billboard Charts in the US - with 2012's The Carpenter reaching Number Four and its 2013 follow-up, Magpie and the Dandelion, reaching Number Five.

GREAT show!

First time seeing the Avett Brothers. It won’t be the last. They’re supremely talented and play a great variety of musical styles, from rock to bluegrass. They’re harmonies are exquisite! Both their music and lyrics are memorable and meaningful. Saw them in Philly at the Mann. Great venue. Can’t wait to see them again. ... Read more

The Brothers put on one hell of a show...Their sound mix was great All their songs were done really well Only issue we had was overselling the show..Stage AE was SRO in the lawn...it was hard to see all of the stage.. Overall good crowd just couldn't relax at all no sitting down for sure. $8 hot dogs were poor and beer selection was shit. ... Read more

Avett Brother at Miller High Life Theatre

Outstanding show. These boys played nonstop for over 2 hours. Catchy melodies and powerful lyrics. High energy and moments of sweet melancholy. You never lose interest in what they say. They are grounded individuals who appreciate family and friends. I really love their music. A must see. Thank you. ... Read more
