Biography

Five years of gigging/touring/recording/barn-burning have melded this rusty boxcar into a bullet train of whiskey and pleasure, and no audience goes home unsatisfied (if they go home at all).

Reverbnation always ranks Hectic Hobo as the #1 americana band in their state, and a blend of vintage accordion, fiddle, saw, piano and banjo mix with electric guitars and jungle drums to usher the old-timey porch songs into the swirling chaos of the modern planet.

"Hectic Hobo has such a deep culture and performs with so much life. They are ruggedly talented musicians and it seems there isn't an instrument they can't play." -Paris Gibson, People Water

"These pirates of the prairie play haunted tunes from a bygone era, and can get any crowd to board their ship." -Mutt Rogers, KRFC in Ft. Collins, CO

"Hectic Hobo's sometimes raucous, sometimes beautiful blend of old and new instruments creates a historical journey and emotional train ride offered by very few live acts." -Salt Lake City Weekly
