Jeez, that was close. Horseshoes & Hand Grenades brought its fall tour with the Kitchen Dwellers to The Saint in Reno on Nov. 9, and they blew the crowd away
Hailing from the river town of Stevens Point, Wisconsin, HHG plays something like progressive high-energy, folk. With strong roots in old-time music and bluegrass, the band has formed its own unique style born from the diverse musical backgrounds and interests of the five friends, all Wisconsin natives, who make up the band.
Tahoe Onstage reviewer Garrett Bethmann had kind words for the band’s performances at the 2016 High Sierra Music Festival:
“Horseshoes & Hand Grenades opened the eyes of many with songs that just feel like the woods. The Wisconsin quintet is easy to love. Their harmonies belong around a campfire, they keep the pedal to the metal on the songs throughout the set and they are legitimately stoked to be playing onstage for endearing fans.
“Harmonicas are certainly a part of old-time folk, country and bluegrass music, but when David Lynch plays he turns the harmonica into a lead instrument in a string band, adding a timelessness to the music that makes it sits so well in your soul.”
