The Grasstronauts

 Chicago, Illinois, USA

The Grasstronauts are four gentleman from Chicago.


"The Grasstronauts may not sound like your granddads bluegrass,but these guys know what theyre doing with the banjo, guitar, bass, and mandolin." - Gary Schwind: Incognito Magazine

The Grasstronauts have never fit neatly into one specific genre.  While bluegrass may be the basis, it's clear their sound is anything but traditional.  Blending elements of bluegrass, rock, jazz and a number of other influences they bring a high energy sound of their own. 

Armed with guitar, banjo, mandolin and bull fiddle, The Grasstronauts create a powerful sound that is constantly evolving.  "We're always trying to work in new things," says guitarist Lee Syrjanen. "There are songs we've played from when the beginning started we'll go back and add upon."   

Based out of Chicago, The Grasstronauts have been fortunate enough to play various music festivals, clubs and bars.  Their unique sound draws people in quickly and engages them until the very last note.  With each member having different backgrounds The Grasstronauts are able to bend genres and provide an experience unlike any other.

"We've always done things differently," says Syrjanen.  "We've had good luck that people have enjoyed what we've done this far. There are certainly new and exciting things on the horizon."
