Saturday, Feb. 27
Goat hosts Michael Hornbuckle Blues Band
The Michael Hornbuckle Blues Band will take the stage at The Goat in Keystone on Saturday, Feb. 27. One of the few things Denver blues guitar legend Bobby Hornbuckle could be heard uttering to his two teenage sons, Brian and Michael, back when the boys were cutting their teeth with the old man on stage as his back up band, was, “Keep it simple, stupid.” Professionalism, work ethic and dedication are the principles that the brothers diligently adhere to so they may continue playing the blues for their faithful and growing audience. The music starts at 10 p.m., and there’s a $5 cover. Visit http://www.soupandwhiskey.com for more information.
