On Friday, Cloud 9 Adventures‘ annual Strings & Sol Mexican destination event kicked off, with the lineup boasting an enviable list of bluegrass superstars including the likes of Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, The Infamous Stringdusters, Fruition, and more. During the festivities yesterday, Greensky Bluegrass performed an intimate poolside set, which saw the group perform a number of covers ranging from the Grateful Dead and Phish to Prince and “The Macarena”.Greensky Bluegrass Cover Widespread Panic, Do “The Macarena” At Strings & Sol [Video]To start off the performance, Greensky offered Bob Marley’s “Small Axe”, setting the precedent for the rest of the set. From there, the group worked through two Grateful Dead tunes—”Eyes Of The World” and “The Other One”—all the while teasing their own “Don’t Lie” throughout the combo. After “The Other One” landed in John Hartford’s “I’m Still Here”, the band offered up 1993 dance hit, “The Macarena”, a hilarious cover they had played the day prior. After “The Macarena”, the group hit a cover of Phish’s “Chalkdust Torture”, Rayland Baxter’s “Yellow Eyes”, John Prine’s “Please Don’t Bury Me”, and the Allman Brothers Band’s “One Way Out”. To close out the set, the group performed the final two covers of the poolside set, Paul Simon’s “Gumboots” and Prince’s “When Doves Cry”.Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass | Now Sapphire Resort | Puerto Morelos, Mexico | 12/9/2017Set: Small Axe, Eyes of the World (1) > Other One (1) > I’m Still Here, Macarena, Chalkdust Torture (1), Yellow Eyes, Please Don’t Bury Me, One Way Out (2)(3), Gumboots, When Doves Cry(4)(1)(5)(6)(1) – “Don’t Lie” tease; (2) – “Macarena” tease; (3) – “Hokey Pokey” tease; (4) – “We Want The Funk” tease; (5) – “Dancing on the Ceiling” quotes; (6) – “Other One” teaseYou can check out video of Greensky Bluegrass’ poolside Saturday set below, courtesy of photographer Josh Timmermans.
