Cover Alert: Greensky Bluegrass Totally Bitchin’ ’80s Covers

On Wednesday Greensky Bluegrass celebrated Hallowen with their second annual Totally Bitchin’ ’80s Dance Party at The Independent in San Francisco. The jamgrass faves delivered one ’80s cover after another for two sets. Thanks to¬†FakeTaper we get to check out a number of those covers.

Included among those covers was Driven To Tears by The Police. You wouldn’t think such a heavy tune would translate to dobro, mando, banjo and the like, but Greensky Bluegrass crushed it…
