The seed was planted deep in the northwoods of Wisconsin and out of it grew the EverGreen Grass Band.

The four-piece band — guitar, bass, banjo and mandolin — will perform its distinctive and aggressive blend of bluegrass, punk, rock ‘n’ roll, jam and country at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, at Cruiser’s Bar, 715 Horizon Drive.

“The EverGreen Grass Band formed in 2008 over the course of many beer and whiskey fueled nights hosting the open mic at the Mousetrap Tavern in Eau Claire, Wis.,” according to http://www.evergreengrassband.com.

The group of discontented bluegrass pickers decided they wanted to alter bluegrass for mankind, the website said, adding that “they failed to do so.”

“Now, they just continue their barnstorm of the Mid-West in hopes of one day playing a song so fast that it actually disrupts the space-time-continuum.”

The band’s first album, “For Sheriff,” was released in June 2010 and tracks from the album can be heard at the website. The band currently is putting the finishing touches on its second full-length original album.

Call 314-2554 for information about the show.
