Last night, Jan. 21, Greensky Bluegrass continued its winter tour in the City of Brotherly Love.  The Saturday night stop at The Fillmore saw the five-piece ensemble tease a pair of Eagles tunes as a fitting homage to the city and a nod to the NFL team’s game against the New York Giants in their quest for a position in the NFC Championship. During the first set, Mikaela Davis stepped out and assisted on the harp after she opened up the night. Additionally, hometown player Tom Hamilton surprised concert-goers by appearing during the evening’s final frame and shredding a selection of songs alongside his hosts. 

Greensky Bluegrass kicked off Saturday night by running through “Jaywalking” and following up from their first number with a spin on “Leap Year,” which flowed over into “Grow Together.” A cover of Jimmy Martin’s “Hit Parade of Love” came next and ushered in Anders Beck’s proclamation of Eagles night, which in turn saw a play on words and teased takes on “Take It Easy” and “Tequila Sunrise” before returning to their original material on “Wish I Didn’t Know.”

The initial frame brought forth “Room Without A Roof” and “Better Off” before a tight delivery of the Paul Hoffman-penned “Windshield.” Next, Davis appeared on stage and lent her skill to “Living Over,” which served as the set’s last song. The night’s second half began with a take on “Bone Digger,” followed by “Take Control.” The latter bled over into a supersized “Miss September,” which eventually saw a return to “Take Control” before the jam unfolded into a cover of Bill Monroe’s “Wheelhoss.” 

“Letter To Seymour” and “Monument” emerged prior to the evening’s guest, Hamilton, taking the stage. As the musician approached, an “Eye of the Tiger” tease was added for dramatic effect. Once positioned, Hamilton shredded through “Past My Prime” and “Run or Die” alongside his hosts. The pair of tunes also served as the final songs of the second set. For the night’s encore, the band emerged again with Hamilton and delivered a closing take on “Who Is Fredrico?” 

After last night’s show in the City of Brotherly Love, Greensky Bluegrass will take a few nights off the road before returning to the stage on Jan. 25 at Cleveland’s Agora Theatre and Ballroom. Tickets remain on sale and can be purchased here
