2016 Grammy Winners The SteelDrivers to Perform at the Astra



Jasper (NNDC) – The 2016 Grammy Award winner in the “Best Bluegrass Album of the Year” category will be making a tour stop at the historic Astra Theatre in Jasper in less than two weeks.  On Saturday, October 15, 2016, The SteelDrivers will headline a performance at the historic theater with special guest Brandon Whyde opening.

The evening is being presented by Best Home Furnishings.

There are two ticket prices for the event:  $55 per VIP ticket and $27.50 per general admission ticket.  The VIP section is nearly sold out and includes the following package:  a meet and greet with The SteelDrivers at Brew, (cash bar, free finger foods); preferred parking (Matrix Integration’s lot); preferred seating at the show; and a free drink voucher (redeemable at the Astra-only).

Tickets are available for purchase now at www.TheNextAct.org or directly at www.itickets.com/events/364411.html.

Whyde will perform a brief opening solo/acoustic set at 7:30 p.m.  The Astra’s box office and doors will open for the event at 6 p.m. (eastern).  The SteelDrivers’ performance will begin at 8:15 p.m.  VIP ticket holders can arrive for the meet and greet with the band at Brew at 5:30 p.m. and must show tickets for entrance.

The SteelDrivers, Rounder Records’ recording artists, have proven the fourth time to be the charm—having been nominated for the prestigious award three other times in the same category (all three, by the way, with former bandmate and current country music sensation Chris Stapleton still in the band).  The album for which they earned the 2016 Grammy, The Muscle Shoals Recordings, is the fourth SteelDrivers studio album and is comprised of all new material, mostly original, and recorded in Muscle Shoals at the legendary NuttHouse Recording Studio.  Much of the inspiration came from Muscle Shoals, an area of exultation and experimentation, and home to the SteelDrivers’ lead vocalist, writer, and lead singer, Gary Nichols.
