Seeing The Hooten Hallers perform can be a life-changing experience. Their shows are fun, fascinating and a little bit scary. It is like being on a rickety, broken-down roller coaster. You are barreling down the track, not quite strapped in, with the wheels creaking from the strain. The whole train is shaking to pieces, and there is nothing ahead but more uncertainty. You don’t know what’s around the next curve, but you know there is a chance that it could shake you to your very soul. Their music is an amalgamation of classic American styles and more modern rock n’ roll: rifling through and mixing blues, punk, country, and even gospel in turn. We’ll just say “Rock n’ Roll & Hillbilly Soul”.
