Quarantunes Continues with The Blue Iguanas Band

Quarantunes returns this Friday evening with an amazing performance of bluegrass by the Blue Iguanas Band! The Blue Iguanas Band combines a love of traditional music and modern acoustic styles such as Newgrass, Americana, and the Blues. The five-piece combo features instruments commonly associated with traditional bluegrass music, and a three or four-part harmony on vocals. The Blue Iguanas have been together for nine years and have played local and regional festivals including The Congaree Bluegrass Festival, the Edisto Bluegrass Festival, the Cherokee NC Bluegrass Festival, Columbia’s Rhythm on the River series and Bluegrass First Class, in Asheville where the band opened for The Seldom Scene. While the band focuses primarily on private events, they can be heard locally at Tombo Grille, The Good Life Café and Steel Hands Brewery, and many others.
