The Colorado Playboys are planning a December tour in, of all places, Colorado! And just who are the Colorado Playboys?
The band is comprised of pickers who have or do play in other bands, and have gotten together just for this tour during the holiday season. Andy Thorn, formerly with Larry Keel & Natural Bridge, will be playing banjo. Travis Book of the Infamous Stringdusters will be holding down the low end on bass. John Frazier of Hit and Run Bluegrass will be playing mandolin. And Jon Stickley of The Biscuit Burners will be playing guitar.
Thorn, Book and Stickley have played together previously in the Rockygrass winning band Broke Mountain (has nothing to do with any movie) so they have quite a bit of experience playing together and this will kind of be a reunion for them in a sense.
A number of dates have already been booked and can be viewed at either Andy Thorn’s Myspace or Travis Book’s Myspace pages.
