The Avett Brothers put on quite the show, with their performance celebrating New Year’s Eve.

According to The Boot, the group rung in the new year in their home state of North Carolina on December 31. The raucous performance reportedly included guest appearances from family members, songs played in unusual parts of the venue, and the debut of new music.

The Avett Brothers opened up their set by covering traditional songs and playing their classic fan favorites. The band then debuted new songs, including “Who Will Hold Me When You’re Gone” and “Willie Got There First.” This marked the first time The Avett Brothers had performed these songs in a live concert setting.

As the night went on and midnight drew closer, the group began upping the ante. Bandmates Scott and Seth Avett and Bob Crawford made a surprise appearance in the concession stand, after sneaking offstage. The trio then gave a quick, two-song performance for all the people who had chosen that time to get a snack.

The Avett Brothers certainly know how to put on a fantastic show, and the attendees at the concert surly experienced a great way to ring in 2019.
