Fans of Trampled by Turtles can celebrate the summer solstice with the popular band. The bluegrass quintet from Duluth, Minnesota will play MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa on June 21, 2018 along with special guest Deer Tick. Show time is 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m.
Trampled by Turtles released their first record, Songs from a Ghost Town, in 2004. The album stood out for its contemporary sound, bridging the gap between rock, bluegrass and folk music. Blue Sky and the Devil (2005) and Trouble (2007) explored a similar sound, but it wasn't until 2008 and the band's fourth release, Duluth, that they received recognition by the bluegrass community.
Duluth peaked at number eight on the Billboard bluegrass chart and paved the way for a number of festival appearances. When Palomino arrived in 2010, it was met with an even greater response, debuting at the top of the bluegrass chart and remaining in the Top Ten for more than a year.
Two years later, their crossover appeal landed them at number 32 on the Billboard 200 pop charts upon the release of their sixth album, Stars and Satellites. In addition to major bluegrass and folk festivals, they began showing up at Coachella, Bumbershoot, and Lollapalooza. The official concert album, Live at First Avenue, followed in 2013, recorded at Minnesota's most famous venue. A year later, the band returned with the darker-toned Wild Animals, which bettered its studio predecessor on the album charts, reaching number 29. Trampled will release their latest album Life Is Good on The Open Road on May 4, 2018.
Making a special guest appearance is the band Deer Tick. From country soul and Delta blues to old-time gospel and hardcore punk, Deer Tick has perfected it all, mostly as an outlier, revered by a legion of fans, respected by peers, but not part of any one scene. With the simultaneous release of twin albums Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol. 2, the crew from Rhode Island prove that their punk-roots rock has only gotten better with age.
Ticket prices range from $32 in advance and $35 day of, plus tax and fees. For information on lodging packages, events, activities, accommodations, ticket sales and showroom entertainment, call 1-800-BE-LUCKY or visit www.montbleuresort.com.
