Opening Act for July 14th Big Week Kick Off Concert Announced
SALINAS, CA, March 30, 2017 – A Thousand Horses, a four man band that includes Michael Hobby-Lead Vocal, Bill Satcher-Lead Guitar, Zach Brown-Guitar and Vocal and Graham Deloach-Bass and Vocal, will open during the July 14th Kid Rock concert presented by Taylor Farms. Known best for their #1 single “Smoke,” A Thousand Horses will go on at 8pm during the 2017 Big Week Kick Off Concert.
A Thousand Horses is a fresh fusion of classic sounds – a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, Black Crowes and Exile on Main Street-era Rolling Stones, wrapped up in a modern-country context. The band’s Republic Nashville album, Southernality, is as wild and free and powerful as the name A Thousand Horses implies. This is the result of years of a road-doggin’ pursuit, determination and an against-the-odds struggle that found its rewards by bringing great music to the people.
A Thousand Horses released their debut self-titled EP in 2010 with the stand out tracks “Travelin’ Man” and “Suicide Eyes”. The latter of which was featured in the 2011 remake of the 80’s classic “Footloose”. The year 2012 brought the Landslide EP, which built upon the solid foundation of their unobtrusive, classic sound. With tracks ranging from the effortlessly laid back to the loud and infectious, this release showcased the band’s creative diversity. The EP features the Southern rock anthem “Tennessee Whiskey”, where the band encapsulates the traditional windows–down summer vibrato that makes any beer run or porch hang happen. They have since shared the stage with artists such as Kip Moore, Blackberry Smoke, and Darius Rucker as well as taking part in the last three Simple Man Cruises hosted by Sixthman and Lynyrd Skynyrd. They are to be listened to loud and preferably with a drink in hand. A Thousand Horses celebrate the revival of roots rock with their own country flavor.
Ticket prices are: $20 for Upper Grandstand, $35 for Lower Grandstand and $75 for Standing Floor Seats. All tickets are subject to applicable fees.
