Progressive bluegrass has never sounded so good or been so fun. Classically trained with a love for rock and blues, this band of brothers has been making music together for over 25 years. Based in Philadelphia, brother Wallace plays with and is the assistant concertmaster for the Philadelphia Pops Orchestra, while his younger sibling Jason is a first violin with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Joined by drummer Don Liuzzi (principal timpanist for the Orchestra), guitarist Mark Cosgrove (a regular with the David Bromberg Band), and bassist Kevin MacConnell, who’s sought after in the jazz world — the DePue Brothers take bluegrass to an entirely new place.
“This band of brothers gives real meaning to the phrase ‘progressive bluegrass,’ bending genres while delivering a powerful mix of classical chops, blazing bluegrass, and rock and roll.”
