Long considered to be one of the forerunners of the “Newgrass” revolution in America, these savvy veterans have been thrilling fans coast to coast for years! Opening for everyone from Greg Allman, Moe, Charlie Daniels, The Doobie Brothers, Jerry Douglas, Alabama,(this list could get LONG) to Widespread Panic,the unique sound of the Hay keeps fans coming back for more. Rollin’ in the Hay has six self-released Cds but also has done 15 nationally released instrumental tributes called the”Pickin’ On” series. With the approval of the band, there are tons of live “bootleg” shows on the internet. Based out of Birmingham, Alabama the band uses www.rollininthehay.com as well as a very active facebook.com/rollininthehay to keep fans informed. Being listed in the Alabama Music Hall 0f Fame as “Music Achievers” is one of this bands proudest accomplishments!

Levon Helm Tributes- Here at Maimed & Tamed we have such massive respect and admiration for The Band and Levon especially, so to be able to witness so many bands pay tribute at Bonnaroo this year was inspiring. We caught Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds doing a funky rendition of “Up On Cripple Creek”, Trampled By Turtles putting together their own version of “The Weight” and bluegrass ramblers Rollin’ In The Hay dedicating their rendition of Springsteen’s “Atlantic City” to Levon who sang on The Band’s famous cover version of the tune. I’m sure there were many more tributes to the late great that we missed throughout the weekend and I’m even more certain that Levon’s legacy will live on for years and bands will continue to pay tribute to him and the impact that he made on the world of music. God bless your beautiful soul Levon, rest in peace.

Not only did the trio hype fans for a weekend of musical fun with "Opie Song," with its steadily-paced mandolin prompting the audience to stomp along, the early set prepared the crowd for days of immeasurable amounts of walking and uncontrolled dancing.

A healthy mix of our originals and some covers.. as for covers, think Widespread Panic, Johnny Cash, tradional bluegrass favorites, or Allman Brothers. We also tailor our sets for the venue. We typically do two 75 to 90 minute shows.
