The Hard Working Americans are doing it right. A recently formed super group, melded members of bands like Widespread Panic, Chris Robinson Brotherhood & Great American Taxi, brings a strong sound and lyrics based in Americana rock, with the feeling of both easy and hard driving folk style tunes. The band formed less than a year ago hit the scene as a powerhouse with members, Todd Snider, Dave Schools, Neal Casal, Chad Staehly and Duane Trucks.
From the bands Facebook page, “Led by Snider’s intrepid vocals and backed by a band of ace players, the Hard Working Americans created fresh song arrangements to tell stories of the everyman and woman- the frustrated and downtrodden, the gritty and gorgeous, the blue-collar and no-collar- hard working folks that give this country a backbone.”
The band kicked off their Colorado run headlining an event at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellvue, Colorado. Here is a view of their sound check.
The second stop on The Hard Working Americans Colorado run was a CD and Album promo event at Twist & Shout in Denver where, already dedicated fans, lined up hours before the 6:00p.m. show.
We caught up with the band at their Twist & Shout event, here are a few views from the show. See you at the show.
