Man oh man, Alaska was a real special time! We always feel right at home up there and the shows are always super fun. I wanted to take a second to thank a couple folks that are such a crucial part of our band. Lynn Salzman is our tour manager and all around energetic goddess. At one point this tour, she managed to drive one of our vehicles like 4 or 5 hours, work with the venue doing all the typical preshow things, perform an absolutely beautiful opening set, do merch all night, settle up with the venue and wake up in the morning and do it all over again. Her talents are abundant and we’re lucky to have her with us! Her band: Ukelyptus Her Biz: Jellyfish Joy Aaron Olson is our sound man, our brother, and all around outstanding dude. Our mic setup isn’t the easiest thing in the world and Aaron handles it with grace and a positive attitude. At one point this tour, we decided to do a little pop up show in Seward and Aaron jumped right into it on a moments notice, making for a decidedly strait up fun night. He drove all over Alaska and even managed to wrestle with us at the end of the night over some beers. Grateful for your admirable work ethic and positive spirit, Aaron! His biz: Audible Streams Last but not least, we’re so grateful for everyone’s support. Every show in Alaska was super memorable and well attended. Musically, it was some of the most fun shows we’ve ever played. Whether you’re up in the land of the midnight sun, or down in the lower 48, we want you to know how grateful we are for each and every one of you supporting our love of making music & memories. Let’s keep doing this for a long time, eh?! All the love to you and yours. Keep being sweet.

Wouldya look at that! 🌞 as we're up here in the land of the midnight sun, we're also thinking of the beach in December 🌴

After a little roustabout on Exit Glacier, we’re ready to rip it up at Williwaw Social in Anchorage this fine evening! Jim Lewin from Great American Taxi kicks off the night at 8pm and then two sets of HHG.

A note from Adam’s friend up in Alaska: You may not have realized it when you went to bed this evening, but your life is about to take a dramatic turn this evening. Over the span of a couple of hours this evening Anchorage is to undergo a metamorphosis from our current status quo to indeed being Fine once again. That's right, tonight marks the return of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades to our otherwise predictably mediocre community. For a couple of hours you'll be able to immerse yourself in the thundering revelry of pure musical joy. At first you may be tempted to strike up conversations with all your friends in the crowd about the status of the state budget or debate the merits of solutions to homelessness. But before you'll be able to do so much as even curse the Governor's name, you'll be immediately thrust into a world of pleasure and fun. The banjo and harmonica will take you back to a nostalgic place, a time when things were simple and pure. As you fight to prevent the perma-grin from becoming obvious to everyone (lest they think you're a grinning mouth breathing fool!) you'll realize that your feet have started moving and you have somehow have danced yourself into a hot frothy lather. When the final notes fall across the crowd you'll wonder where the time went and how you can get more. Keep reading if you want to know the answer to that question in advance. Horseshoes & Hand Grenades TONIGHT!!!! Wednesday, August 7th at the Williwaw Anchorage Yes, I realize that it is a school night. We're all exhausted from too much daylight at this point, but this is an opportunity to see a super fun performance from musicians who don't live here. Take advantage of it. Shaina and I will be boogying down hard and we hope to see you in the crowd doing the same. We're also going to be heading down to Hope, Alaska to see two nights of Horseshoes shows and do a little outdoorsing this weekend. JOIN US!!!!

Hey all ye facebooking friends and folks. Adam here. So two things. First off, I just got a message from my friend Patrick who’s visiting Australia. He said he was chilling somewhere and our “This Old Town” album came on! I thought that was pretty darn cool and wanted to share it. Second, I’m gonna play a solo show at the Stevens Point, WI bandshell Thursday night from 6-6:30pm opening for this badass band called Gangstagrass. I’m gonna have a hilarious special guest with me too, so try to make it down if your free and wanna soak in some summertime river vibes. Hope summer is treating you all real nice.

Collin being super awesome with the kiddos at the Bighorn Bluegrass Camp! What a wonderful week it’s been working with the future of this music.
Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Jul 17, 2019
It’s a pretty darn neat experience to be teaching a “Bluegrass Kids Camp” again this summer in Wyoming! There’s so many talented kiddos and it’s pretty spectacular to see their musical and social growth through the course of the week. What an honor to get to work with the future in bluegrass and country music! Neat-o.
