Half Pint & The Growlers
Half Pint & The Growlers play a tasty brew of Swing, Gypsy, Twang, and Soul that’ll take you for a spin from New Orleans to Cuba, Paris to Memphis. In true gypsy spirit, they cover a lot of ground – playing originals and covers from this century and that, getting hipsters and old-timers on the dance floor in places from speakeasies to honky tonks. Catch them at area watering holes, festivals, and markets.
GOATZ! ... pronounced like goats are invading your space .. like you're really warning people. Like when you're yelling there's a stampede ... only we're "old" and a bit cranky, so I'm not so sure we can stampede into your life. So no fear. We love good stories and fun songs. We're "old" - did I mention that? And, we play music that feels like well worn jeans, sneakers and soft, oft washed and faded t-shirts. It feels like country under the wheels - away from the zoom zoom of city streets and traffic lights; under a sunny Colorado country sky.
GOATZ! performs Americana-country-folk music. Some of our shows feature the core acoustic quartet, and some feature the full six piece with drums and pedal steel.
Chris K - aka Goat - is a third generation musician going back to the 1920s. He started performing professionally in 1970, but settled on radio as his lifelong passion.
