THE cleverlys
The Cleverlys are a one-of-a-kind comedy/music blend. Digger Cleverly and his nephews, Lloyd, DVD, Bear, and Quattro, make up The Cleverlys. They tour nationally, performing at music venues, performing arts centers, and some of the nation’s largest festivals like Stagecoach, Telluride, CMA Music Fest, and even The Grand Ole Opry. Don’t be fooled by this faux-family band—they are all accomplished musicians putting their unique bluegrass spin on cover songs from any genre.
