“...An electrifying force of Americana music."
From their humble inception as an acoustic trio, The Drunken Hearts have grown into an electric five-piece that is captivating audiences across the country. The Colorado-based band fearlessly bottles a tempestuous, yet honest brand of American music — infusing spirited vocals with electric and acoustic instruments, and crafting thoughtful songs that are resonating with crowds everywhere.
Originally an outlet for lead singer and acoustic guitarist, Andrew McConathy, the band has toured the country from coast-to-coast, with stops at famed venues and festivals, such as Electric Forest, Vertex, Fayetteville Roots Fest, Hangtown Music Festival, and the band’s own YarmonyGrass, among others. Tyra Sutak (Elevation Outdoors Magazine) described her experience as being “...lured by the symphonic sounds of strings blended with electric guitar riffs and heartfelt vocals reminiscent of great country singers from the past… The groove bobbed through our bones and burrowed in our boots tapping along with the catchy beats and unique melodies."
Opener: The Threadbarons
Based out of Denver, Colorado, members hail from New York and Pennsylvania; the midwest and west Texas. They range in age from their freshly matured 30s to their deeply weathered 60s. The music of the Threadbarons is informed by the vast variety of life. "If the ThreadBarons' moniker is a play on the word "threadbare," it fits the weathered Americana made by [this] Denver quartet." described Westword.
You’ll hear the inspirations: Dylan in his electric years; Wilco in their prime. You may be reminded of The Band, as various members take the mic. But you might not hear a more authentic commentary on the very human road we all travel.
