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

We went for the Spelunkers Package which included a Cave Tour, T-shirt and the Bluegrass Underground Show (for a pretty low price). We saw the Glades City Rounders & The Larry Stephenson Band. The Cave Tour was excellent. It's not exactly Carlsbad Caverns but pretty...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.

Fun time at Bluegrass Underground. Sprung for the VIP ticket that included a cave tour, tee shirt, CD, poster, food, and music. It also allowed us to enter before the general admission tickets to pick a seat. It is all first come first served. HOWEVER,...More
