The Haymarket Squares
PUNKGRASS FOR THE PEOPLE
Armed with tight vocal harmonies, bluegrass instruments and a heaping dose of righteous anger, The Haymarket Squares are Arizona's premier purveyors of punk grass.
Although they've been together for less than 2 years, Mark, Marc and John have played more than 100 shows in Arizona and the western U.S. They've developed a loyal following among punks, anarchists, hippies, activists and other thinking folks who appreciate rabble-rousing lyrics wrapped in a catchy melody.
Known for long sets and short songs, a typical Haymarket Squares show features ecstatic dancing, blindingly fast mandolin, and broad smiles. Who knew changing the world (or at least singing about it) could be so much fun?
Here Come Cowboys
When the eclectic minds, open hearts, and adventurous spirits of songwriters Bobby Bennett and Steph Griffin came together, Here Come Cowboys was born.
In 2010, Steph and Bobby took a leap, packed up their guitars and headed out of Ohio, giving a nod to fond memories and downhome people who helped mold them into who they are today. Goodbye Big Ohio. Hello Prescott, Arizona!
There is magic in the desert, and soul in the mountains. In Prescott, both exist in perfect harmony, allowing a community of creative people to breath life into the beauty that surrounds this town. For the last three years, Steph and Bobby have been creating new music and a new life in Prescott – the birthplace of Here Come Cowboys and now, their proud hometown.
Together, these two voices join to sing a sweet dialogue of tight harmonies that carry each melody, and satisfy each listening heart. A music teacher by day and a mountain-biking songwriter by night, Stephanie Griffin finds inspiration from the country singing of Loretta Lynn and Emmylou Harris. She found her own Gram when she found Bobby Bennett. Complete with a truck, dusty boots, and a pure country style, Bobby and his J-100 can pump out country tunes like it’s nobody’s business. Together, side-by-side, Steph and Bobby are Here Come Cowboys.
From a full band to a duo, HCC comes in many flavors. Most often now, they play as a tasty trio with upright bassist Zac Mendenhall who brings a boot-stomping beat and a powerful stage presence to every show. You can see the band perform in Prescott at venues such as the Raven, Coyote Joes, Celtic Crossings, and Granite Mountain Brewing Company. When journeying over the mountain, HCC plays in Jerome at the Spirit Room and in Cottonwood at various venues such as Rendezvous. HCC has toured in Colorado several times establishing a name for themselves in Fort Collins, Grand Lake, and Denver. Hopefully soon… Here Come Cowboys will be coming to a town near you!
This is Americana music - reawakened and handcrafted with stories, memories, dreams, and a lil’ sparkle and twang.
Here comes country music.
Here Come Cowboys.
