A Thousand Horses made a stop along with Gregg Allman at the Colonial Theater in Keene New Hampshire on a cold rainy night in November. While playing to a sold out audience, A Thousand Horses put a different twist on their show, playing an acoustic set. Having caught these guys a few times in the past, I was really looking forward to hear their approach to playing their songs acoustically.
With guitars in hand, Michael Hobby, Bill Satcher, Zach Brown and Graham DeLoach dug into notes of their songs such as “Tennessee Whiskey”, “A Thousand Horses” and their latest release, “Drunk Dial.” From the first note, I was hooked. Their acoustic set was amazing. Michael Hobby’s vocals shined through the mellowness of the acoustic set.
The band received a huge response from the packed house and I’m sure attracted many new followers. Their sound, a modern twist on that classic rock/country sound was a perfect fit paired with Greg Allman. A Thousand Horses has been working hard at perfecting their craft and it seems that they have hit the nail on the head.
Be sure to keep an eye out for these guys. Having had the privilege to hang out and get to know A Thousand Horses, I can assure you that these guys are the real deal and some of the most down to earth guys you could meet. Catch them on an upcoming show with acts such as Gregg Allman and Darius Rucker. You can see the list of tour dates at http://www.athousandhorses.com
