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

If you like good Bluegrass music you will love this venue. Even if you don't like it it is still a unique adventure. 335 feet underground in a large cave, is a concert hall! Plenty of good seating, snack bar, and gift shop. If you...More

We paid over $265.00 for 2 of us and we had to stand in the hot sun for over an hour before we could be seated in the cave. Once we entered the cave, each group was trying to rush in the cave to get...More

I came here with my wife for the Highly Suspect concert. We drove all the way down from Indiana because we wanted to experience the 333 feet underground cave concert. I didn't disappoint! The acoustics in this cave are truly remarkable and the scenery is...More

Truly a memorable experience! Bluegrass from the Rumpke Mountain Boys and Larry Keel Experience in a cave. Great music, great acoustics. The wait outside to get a prime seat is a bit annoying, but well worth it.

Fun time at Bluegrass Underground. Sprung for the VIP ticket that included a cave tour, tee shirt, CD, poster, food, and music. It also allowed us to enter before the general admission tickets to pick a seat. It is all first come first served. HOWEVER,...More

My wife and I are big music fans and see a lot of live shows. This was by far the best acoustics of any room in our lives. The whole scene is really cool and laid back, but very well organized, professional and just different.......More

I already have tickets for Saturday's show, my question is people talking about lines. How early do lines start? It sounds like we are expecting lines at will call and entry? We are looking to stay in east Nashville, one question up you said it takes 1 45 minutes to get there, google says 1 16?

We are very excited to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday here in August! We plan to fly into Nashville the day before and were originally going to stay in town. But the more I consider the drive and getting there for the tour prior, I think we will stay closer. Should we stay in Murfreesboro, or drive all the way to McMinnville? Want to be able to have a nice dinner that night. The whole thing will be a surprise (until we get to the airport!). Any recommendations appreciated! Thanks!
