Since their inception in 2009, Wisconsin’s Horseshoes & Hand Grenades has made a name for themselves through hard work, constant touring, and a true knack at writing solid folk and bluegrass songs. With roots in old-time and bluegrass, the band is able to take the basic elements of both musical traditions and turn out some seriously high-energy and progressive string music. And that ability will be on full display when Horseshoes & Hand Grenades comes to New York City’s American Beauty on Friday, April 28th (purchase tickets here).
Having shared the stage with (as well as following in the footsteps of) other folk, bluegrass, and Americana legends such as Merle Haggard, the Del McCoury Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Trampled By Turtles, Yonder Mountain String Band, and more, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades continues in the tradition of pickin’, toe-tappin’, as well as barley-laced ale and whiskey drinking. With three studio albums under their belt, and a fourth on its way, take a listen to tracks such as “Whiskey,” “Weary Bones,” or “Stuck On Your Mind,” and you will quickly realize the sheer energy that this band brings to their music, and subsequently, the live stage.
If you are looking to get some good old foot stompin’ in, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades is the move. Tickets for their American Beauty show in NYC are currently on sale, and can be purchased here. For show updates and additional information, join the Facebook Event group page.
