Summary

CEG Presents Gangstagrass at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on January 17th. 

We're offering a great support opportunity to a band who has established a fan base in NYC, and is looking to build upon that by supporting a nationally touring band.

This is a 40 min support slot. Compensation is offered, based on market history.

The Opportunity

A blend of Bluegrass and Hip-Hop may seem like an odd pairing but it blends seamlessly to create a twangy beat that has gone mainstream earning music placement in the hit show Justified with Timothy Olyphant.  According to Rolling Stone, "Gangstagrass fuses string instruments with hip-hop artists, resulting in arguably the best argument yet for a rap and country music marriage."

Knitting Factory is a mainstay in the indie music scene with a dedicated local following and nation-wide prestige.  Located in the bumping neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, both local and touring bands look forward to a night on a the Knitting Factory stage. 

The Band
