A Music Company Inc. is bringing Hot Buttered Rum ( Americana, Bluegrass, & Indie Rock) to Ivywild School, 1604 S. Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, on Saturday, March 1, 2014. Show time is 7:00p.m.
Hot Buttered Rum lives for songs. Their original songs are instantly familiar and inviting, and their easygoing versions of timeless classics (the Beatles, Hank Williams) belie the intricacy of the arrangements. The band’s three songwriters — Aaron Redner, Nat Keefe and Erik Yates — spin tales about the good times, the bad times, and the roads in between, and belt them from the heart in three-part harmony. Bryan Horne’s athletic standup bass and Lucas Carlton’s tasteful percussion combine with the acoustic instruments to create what is California’s own acoustic music.
Years of touring have given the band the chance to work and play with a wide cross-section of musicians, people like Phil Lesh, Chris Thile, Brett Dennen, and Robert Earl Keen. Seasoned veteran Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), acoustic guru Mike Marshall, and left-coast rocker Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips, Nicki Bluhm) have all produced studio albums for the band. Each guided HBR towards the next step in its evolution. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love, and it has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country: Telluride, Newport, Bonnaroo, Strawberry, Hardly Strictly, Kate Wolf, Horning’s Hideout, String Summit, Grey Fox, All Good, High Sierra, Wakarusa, and many more.
The group’s onstage chemistry fuels the lovefest that is a live HBR show. A mindful recklessness settles in whenever these five guys step out of their front doors in northern California to entertain crowds from Anchorage to Miami. They live for a good time!
“Hot Buttered Rum put on a great show at the 2011 MeadowGrass Music Festival and we’re thrilled to be able to bring them to the Ivywild School where fans will be able to dance the night away while seeing this great band in an up close and personal way” explains Amy Whitesell of A Music Company Inc, promoter of the show.
Tickets are $20 advance and $25 the day of show. Tickets are available online at www.amusiccompanyinc.com or at the Ivywild School’s Dry Goods Store.
