Me and my husband went to it for our 1 yr anniversary. It was so much fun and the musicians were very talented and entertaining. It is worth going to see, especially in the Cumberland caves.

Great venue for music. Lighting and acoustics amazing, and the hall small and intimate. Organizers need to be a bit more clued in to moving people and communicating wait lines, times, etc. Lots of confusion between cavern tourists and concert goers. Also found the smells...More

Awesomeness. Man, were they good. Best concert ever! BUT, the venue needs to work on signage, information about what you should do when you're going there (timing), and crowd control. If you're going to hang about after the tickets become available at 10 AM, the...More

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

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

We have been watching Bluegrass Underground for a few years and jumped at the chance to go to a concert. It did not disappoint. We got the package that included a tour of the caverns, which was interesting. The concert was a blast! Don't expect...More
