 Like many non profits our general support has been drastically cut.  All money we raise go to fund our programs and events as well as operations of the Larimer Arts Center.  We hope you will join us   Tickets are $10.00 in advance or $15.00 at the door.  So come on get your tickets now and join us for a 'foot stompin' good time at Billy and Gaye's Downtown Blues Bar & Grille.  This will be a
smoke free night !!!!!

The Arts Council would like to thank Billy and Gaye for this opportunity and Blast of Grass and Lee Kelly for their dedication to the Arts In Putnam. 

The sound of Bluegrass music knows no greater fans than the four artists who make up this group.  Blast of Grass has four unique and innovative musicians.  Two of the members also being family members -- Danny Lanier (mandolin and harmony vocals) and son Justin Lanier (guitar and lead vocals) with the help of Platt Drew (bass) and Rick Ray (banjo and harmony vocals) each member of this group knows how to compliment one another’s music in every way.

Blast of Grass has shared the stage with such artists as Tracy Lawrence, Roy Clark, Ty Herndon, Cherry Holmes Family, Marty 

Raybon and countless others.  Although they write their own material, the group also considers any genre of music for material to add a bluegrass twist to more accented and melodic style of contemporary bluegrass, it is easy to see why Blast of Grass is one of the top rising bluegrass bands today.
