Acoustics were good, but still hard to understand words of songs. We don't follow any specific type of music, just thought it would be something different/original to do. Enjoyable once, to check off bucket list, but probably wouldn't do it a second time.

My sister was visiting from NM and I had always wanted to go the Bluegrass underground, so we got tickets and went. The pre-band (Quiles & Cloud) was more folk music that bluegrass, but the Peter Rowan Band was excellent. The chairs are cheap plastic...More

If you like good Bluegrass music you will love this venue. Even if you don't like it it is still a unique adventure. 335 feet underground in a large cave, is a concert hall! Plenty of good seating, snack bar, and gift shop. If you...More

We paid over $265.00 for 2 of us and we had to stand in the hot sun for over an hour before we could be seated in the cave. Once we entered the cave, each group was trying to rush in the cave to get...More

Truly a memorable experience! Bluegrass from the Rumpke Mountain Boys and Larry Keel Experience in a cave. Great music, great acoustics. The wait outside to get a prime seat is a bit annoying, but well worth it.
