    Great performers , great music as they are famous for . Researched local songs and sang to the local crowd , that is amazing they took time to relate to their audience , sign of a great band . Can’t wait till next concert .
    Brought the local front band on at end of concert and were gracious enough to share the songs and stage with them and share lyrics on the final song .

  2. Brendan Havens

    It was titled Circlin’ Back and all the favorites were sung. The only thing that could’ve made this concert better was Ibby to sing Ripplin’ Waters. Jeff did a great job, but to me that will always be Ibby’s song. John McEuen is at the top of his game with all his fiddles, banjoes etc.
    There was no new music. You’ve heard and loved every song if you are a longtime Dirt fan. I am going to try to see it again. The Ameristar was a great venue for the concert.

  3. Jude Migliori

    Great 2+ hour show great vocals and jammn’. Enjoyed immensely. Just like old times

  4. Lorine Willinger

    Have seen them 3 times and they just keep getting better, amazing musicians! Great music, very entertaining.

  5. Van Danielsen

    Outstanding concert– the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is always great but to add the venue of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and the guests that shared the stage throughout the show made it something more than unique. To see the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker talk about writing and then singing “Mr. Bojangles”, Jimmy Ibbotson on stage again (“Let’s Go Fishin’!”), Rodney Crowell singing the hit (he wrote) “Long Hard Road–The Sharecropper’s Dream” with the guys–Jackson Browne, Vince Gill, Allison Krauss, and so much, much more…what a wonderful experience that anyone who was there will never forget. This was taped for PBS and will air in March, 2016 nationwide (sometime between 5th and 20th)…don’t miss it.

  6. Forest Higley

    This was the first time I had the opportunity to see NGDB live. They were amazing, they truly are like a fine wine, they have gotten better with age. I have listened to them since I and they were in their 20’s, after all these years I finally saw them live, they were worth the wait.

  7. Raphael Humenik

    Their music speaks to me and Brings me joy. So I’m biased. Seeing them live did not disappoint! They sounded great. I was in “dirt heaven”. A friend who was with me was impressed with their skill and talent with their instruments. She commented how well Jimmie Fadden played the harmonica and the drums at the same time! We thoroughly!

  8. Dia Newbauer

    “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band 50 Years Circling Back”

  9. Callie Kalvaitis

    Took my wife as a surprise, What an awesome date nite. It was great to get to know the band better. The guys did great.!!

  10. Augustine Rattley

    Show was a great place to be . NGDB included friends from many different times in their carriers. All that were on stage had benefited by being associated with the NGDB.

  11. Tanisha Vaquerano

    The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has a history of loving and sharing music by embracing the heritage of Old Time, County, Blue Grass, Cajun, etc. The lists of new and traditional stars who show up on their albums, especially the “Circle” albums celebrates the gifts of great songwriters and performers like no other venue.

  12. Kellye Boughn

    Enjoyed going back in time to watch and sing along with the Dirt Band. Played many of their oldies–especially Mr.Bojangles. Featured each of their members. Great on the drums and harmonica. Loved the banjo and fiddle. Recommend for all ages.

  13. Zulma Breon

    I have grown up listening to the Dirt Band and my 16 year old wanted to see them for his birthday. We went to Penn’s Peak and had a great time. The Dirt Band was excellent. They
    played old and new songs. They still sound great. Would see them again.

  14. Brock Seiter

    great music with continued superb presentation.
    Nostalgia plus.

  15. Julian Ebener

    Enjoyed the show in your amazing theatre. Great seats.

  16. Rod Rosenbarger

    There’s a lot of music and many styles of performance when these guys pick up their instruments and face an audience. There is no indication that time has passed: the voices are great, there is great energy and non-stop music that keeps you hankering for just one more…. And they have plenty to give after 50 years. I think what I enjoyed most was the newer material and the long jams where the banjo or the harmonica or the mandolin carries the melody to new places. They are still performing because they have the chops to make music as fresh as today.

  17. Rogelio Werger

    One of the best shows ever the band was tight but after 50 years they should be. Some bands don’t have there voices after years on the road . This was not a problem with the Dirt Band they sound great.Jeff Hanna did a wonderful job keeping the flow with a TV tapeing which is not easy.If they are near I will go see them anytime.

  18. Gaynelle Gluc

    The Band was exceptional. They began their performance at 8:02 p.m. and played for 2 full hours. It was if time had stood still. They are great musicians and showmen. The Wilbur Theater was the perfect venue for this concert. I hope they return in the future, I will definitely be there.

  19. Wanda Huckabee

    Great from beginning when Vince Gill announced them to the last notes he sang on
    The Circle. Always entertained by NGDB and with the addition of all the other great artists as well as the funny personality Jeff Hanna shared made me smile. Great to see Ibby again.

  20. Melvin Child

    What a great group of talented musicians! Super!!!

  21. Brigitte Pekrul

    I had seen these guys several times when I was younger but haven’t for some 30 or more years. Amazingly rich with a bunch of great songs and nice to see a bunch of “old guys” can still put on a fantastic concert.. The audience was really into it too.

  22. Warner Arritola

    This was an excellent show!! Audiences gave them 3 – 4 standing ovations!! A must see!!

  23. Jesse Fuerstenberg

    The only thing that could possibly be better than an evening with one of my all time favorite bands is an evening with NGDB & THEIR FRIENDS. OMG! It was awesome. Seeing Jerry Jeff Walker on Mr. Bojangles was worth the price of the ticket, not to mention the unforgettable Jimmy Ibbotson back with the band. Also, the legendary John Prine. (Standing Ovations, Multople). And, the final fabulous gathering for “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?”. It was a fabulous, amazing, wonderful three hours well spent in the historic Ryman Theater (with the miserably uncomfortable wooden pews & and a great big dose of “who cares about the seats?”. This was their 50th anniversary “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band circling back again” performance & was being recorded for a television special.

  24. Emanuel Surles

    They played all their best old songs for about 1.5hrs. Could have been longer but they did come back for 1 encore.

  25. Margart Parat

    It was an excellent show. The sound man knew that you need to hear the vocals over the music. The overall selection of songs was good although I had hoped they would include “partners” But I guess you can’t have everything and they have a rather large catalog.

  26. Dinorah Malakai

    NGDB are terrific musicians, and they played a wonderful set at the Wilbur. I only wish the sound had been decent. The acoustics were terrible – tinny – and the base shook the place and you could not hear the words they sang.

  27. Lynnette Zapato

    Saw NGDB at the French Lick hotel. Was very satisfied with the quality and professionalism of the show. Best harmonica solo I’ve seen since Magic Dick of the J Geils Band.

  28. Gary Wassell

    50th. anniversary concert for Nitty Gritty was a night to remember at the Ryman. Besides one of my favorite groups of all time, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, a veritable who’s who of country/bluegrass musicians helped them celebrate in a concert filmed for later showing on PBS. From Vince Gill to John Prine, Allison Krause, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Jackson Browne, and many others, it was a concert to remember.

  29. Marissa Georgi

    Without a doubt the best concert we have ever attended and we have seen a lot of them!!!!

  30. Wilmer Burel

    Great entertainment in every way. Nearly perfect, and talented instrumental wise and vocally, but also funny and personable. Worth every penny! Non-stop for over 2 hours of great listening. Not too loud or too soft, just right for my taste.

  31. Minda Bemrose

    An unforgettable show the Dirt Band has still got it!! Great music and stories very entertaining group of guys. I have wanting to see them perform for a long time and they were worth the wait. Good Ole Country Music

  32. Emanuel Surles

    We had a great time at the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band concert. The music was fantastic and such talent in the group. Easy in/out venue.

  33. Quinton Kuznicki

    Terrific show even with the questionable seating. Enjoyed every bit of the music from some amazing musicians.

  34. Emanuel Klemen

    I expected this evening to be filled with good music, but it turned out better than I thought. Not only was there great music, it was so entertaining with the personalities and nostalgic stories! Country-folk, rock and bluegrass. A talented team!

  35. Lakia Viscera

    saw the band 9-13-15 at the ryman.jeff hanna still looks good and still has a very good voice.the band really can play,this show was their circle albums special,they had sam bush ,jerry douglas,john prine ,Allison Krause,jackson brown.i cant forget jerry jeff walker doing his version of bojangles.jeff told old stories about the band ,played songs from the beginning to fishin in the dark.go see them that wont being touring much longer.

  36. Genoveva Baisden

    I smugly consider myself to be very well versed in music of a certain…well…era. That being said, I seem to have missed the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band along the way. Of course, I heard “Mr. Bojangles” incessantly as a pre teen, but other than that…nothing. Although many of the songs played that night were unfamiliar to me, I appreciated the band’s tight sound, spot on vocals & overall musicality.

  37. Lincoln Frankovich

    show was incredible I use to book concerts at Missouri State in the early 70’s and we had them several times. They still rock and are incredible musicians. Great venue and really enjoyed the show

  38. Jerry Englerth

    Great concert. What wonderful talent was displayed. Young people need to see this kind of talent.

  39. Reagan Rathel

    Fantastic show. Not hard to see why they have lasted 50 years. Still have the great sound they always did. Stiefel is a great venue.

  40. Raphael Raysor

    Been following these guys for years and their recent show at the Ryman was the best live event I’ve ever attended. Not only were they great, all their significant guests blended perfectly. Can’t wait to see it on PBS.

  41. Hubert Meinberg

    Nitty Gritty Dirt band was average. Ok. About 5 cover songs for a band that does evidently does not have enough good original material. They were simply celebrating 50 years. Good for them. We left early after they played Fisshin in the Dark.

  42. Krysta Deonarine

    After 50 years the nitty gritty dirt still puts on a terrific show

  43. Alberto Kusko

    From the opening notes to the final bow, this group delivered a solid performance. For over two hours, the audience was singing along to their classics – and a few classics by other artists. The musicianship was amazing, crisp and clean; the vocals were still clear and solid. Bringing the drum kit to the side and closer to the front was a great move to showcase his incredible skill of drumming while playing the harmonica. If they were bored with performing the same songs they have performed for years, it didn’t show at all. Highly recommended.

  44. Becky Knezevic

    A once in a lifetime show. Beautiful, moving, extraordinary. Well done and hope the music keeps coming for another 50 years.

  45. Arnulfo Vosburg

    A nice easy going concert with excellent sound and mazing musicians
    Plus audience participation! You can really tell they love what they do! The sound was outstanding!

  46. Rodolfo Adelgren

    Had a wonderful time. Great musicians. Last time I saw NGDB was in 1985, Manhattan, KS.

  47. Willard Flaim

    I first saw and heard the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in the late ’60’s early ’70’s at the Troubador in West L.A. They were still a Jug Band with Jug , washboard. And Jimmie Fadden in a semi sailor suit and possibly overalls( minor details) what really mattered was the amazing music and fun. I have seen them many times since then and all I can say is” they get better and better” by the way in those days Jeff Hanna was known as “Spanky” don’t ask why.
    I was at Bob Carpenters first appearance with the band. Sadly missed the Jackson period but did see Chris Darrow.

  48. Kirby Couto

    With the lineup this show had, it would have to be fantastic. Watch it on TV next march when it will air for a PBS Fundraiser!

  49. Alton Donel

    A classic and talented group with a great song set and special guests.
    The Ryman has excellent acoustics. The experience was enhanced because
    we know the band personally.

  50. Maurice Busscher


  51. Randy Hollister

    Proved beyond a doubt that they are awesome even without a supporting cast of Country/Bluegrass Hall of Famers!

  52. Nakisha Armen

    Voices still strong and musicianship fabulous. Great mix of music. Stories about their songs and history add interest. Really enjoyed it.

  53. Roscoe Swait

    The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was as good as ever…maybe better.

  54. Long Bethers

    Over the top talent! Would recommend to all ages of country music fans.

  55. Isaac Maran

    I attended a lot of concerts in the 70’s and 80’s and am leery of seeing bands now that I saw in their prime. I can honestly say The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s present performance sounded just as good as they did 20+ years ago!

  56. Danny Daughetee

    Good show, great venue. No intermission – the guys just kept one person on stage at a time in the middle, really got your money’s worth.

  57. Hunter Primos

    These guys have been playing together for 50 years and it shows. Saw them a year ago – some things were the same, but there were many new moments as well. Worth every penny!! They played for a solid 2 hours – no opening act.

  58. Antione Edie

    Using a word of John McEuen’s it was fracking awesome!!

  59. Angel Neigh

    Had a great time, put on a great show. My favorite band

  60. Jonah Abraham

    The concert and the venue at Ameristar was incredible. The are a Kansas City favorite and they know it. Great concert that left everyone happy.
