Georgia Grass is one of the longest running and venerable Bluegrass bands in Georgia. Founded in 1973 by our band leader and guitarist, Dan Daniel, Georgia Grass has played many of the Bluegrass festivals throughout Georgia and the southeast. Georgia Grass has been well known from the early 1970's in various clubs and private events in and around Atlanta. In 1976 Georgia grass was chosen to play for the grand opening of the, then new, Georgia World Congress Center. Today Georgia Grass is still going strong as a local Bluegrass powerhouse of musical ability with three talented members. Our band leader, Dan Daniel, plays acoustic guitar and sings lead vocals on most of our songs, Dan is the storyteller of the group with a deep knowledge of traditional Bluegrass and Americana folk music and its history in the state of Georgia and the Southeast.

Review by Jeff S.

Retirement PartyReviewed on June 12, 2021From Senoia, GA

Dan, James, and Niki are a pleasure to work with. We scheduled them for a retirement party and they did not disappoint. If you are looking for a straight out bluegrass band to play your event, they are a great choice. They know all of the bluegrass favorites as well as many of their own songs. In between sets and after the show they joined with with the guest and talked at length with everyone there. Our guest were still talking the next few days about how enjoyable they were.
