Cheatgrass

The invasive bluegrass band

Welcome

Welcome to the website of Cheatgrass. We are from Corvallis Oregon in the beautiful Willamette Valley. We do play some mighty fine bluegrass songs and instrumentals as well as a varietal of other species (hence the cheat part).

For the first time since pre-pandemic days, I'm very happy to report that we'll be playing several times (all outdoors) this summer. The first time is a week from Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at Common Fields ( https://www.commonfieldscorvallis.com/ ) in Corvallis, where we'll be playing from 6-8 PM. They have three food trucks, a large selection of mostly local beers and ciders, and a shady outdoor seating area. Common Fields is located at the corner of 3rd Street and Western Boulevard in downtown Corvallis.
