About The Cleverlys:
Hailing from a remote part of the Ozarks, The Cleverlys are a traditional family bluegrass band with a slightly skewed sense of the past, present and future. As comfortable with a high lonesome cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” and Fergie’s “Clumsy” as they are “In The Pines”, The Cleverlys are a serious comedy bluegrass act. The family band consisting of Digger, Miles, Vernon Dean, aka VD, Harvey D and cousin Otto is a send up hitting all the right notes. The group has had quite a year in 2011. The Cleverlys has performed at Stage Coach Music Fesitval, The Mint (LA), The CMA Music Festival LP Field concerts, numerous Station Inn performances and their Grand Ole Opry debut. With all the performances have come critically-acclaim by industry insiders and the most respected of music critics from The LA Times, AOL, USA TODAY and many more. The Cleverlys will be releasing a DVD and CD in the near future.
