| THE BAND
The Comet Bluegrass All-Stars (CBAS) were assembled in 1996 as the Sunday night house band at The Comet a neighborhood pub in Northside, Cincinnati. Since that time the popularity of the band has grown beyond the lounge at The Comet, opening for such national acts as Sam Bush, Blue Highway, Del McCoury and Ricky Skaggs.
The Sunday night sessions at the Comet are informal and known to draw a diverse, “listening” audience from small children to senior citizens. Those attending the shows find all members of the band accomplished singers and multi-instrumentalists in their own right, with the live combination of these players presenting an even greater sum than it’s parts, through amazing musical interplay and high lonesome bluegrass harmony.
The CBAS won the Cincinnati Enquirer Cammy Award in 2000, 2001 and 2002 for “Best Bluegrass/Folk Band” as well as CityBeat’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards in 2001, 2002 and 2004 for “Best Bluegrass/Folk Band.”
