Tyler Rennix and Friends is a rotating cast of great players in the area making each show unique and different but still keeping true to his inherant bluegrass/newgrass sound. He loves to play in Coffee Shops, Breweries, Hometown Bars, Churches, Weddings, Private events etc. His favorite rooms are listening rooms, but also realizes many situations are geared towards Background music.
