Live Music Provided by Route 40
The Route 40 band is a sonically progressive, roots and jazz influenced bluegrass group. After making the long journey from the small state of Rhode Island, two years later, they now officially and proudly hail from the greater Nashville, TN area. While the band primarily concentrates on writing originals, they also put their unique twist on each and every cover song that they do. Route 40 is an all occasion band. Listening room performances, bars, weddings, parties, corporate events…you name it, they’ve got you covered. The band is primarily a trio at its core, adding drums and violin on occasion.
