What others say:
The Double Down Daredevils deliver a fresh blend of music that evokes a more sophisticated take on the genre - the tunes appeal to a wide audience, they play with a respect for the classics but take no prisoners when it comes to pushing the bluegrass genre to the edge. This band is clever, seasoned in eclectic versatility and just plain fun! " - Martha Galep - Minnesota Bluegrass
My jaw dropped when they opened their set at the 2016 Minnesota Americana-Roots Band Contest with an a capella five-part harmony. At a festival last month, I was at dinner with some friends when our attention was caught by the sound of a really tight number drifting over from a nearby stage. A couple of us jumped up from the table to track it down and found the Double Down Daredevils, clearly a band to watch. - Ann Iljima
