Performing their high energy original songs alongside fresh and funky takes on the music of Woodstock 1969!
Steeped in classic soul standards and outfitted with modern flair, The Burroughs are a nine piece band with a powerhouse sound that has been electrifying audiences across Colorado and beyond. Since 2013, the band has lit up stages with their trademark brand of "Sweaty Soul Music," quickly earning their rightful place as one of the best live bands in the region.
The Burroughs' upcoming full-length studio album, Got To Feel, harnesses the energy of their live shows and combines it with thoughtful songwriting and superb musicianship to culminate in a new sonic frontier for the band. Produced and engineered by Colin Bricker of Mighty Fine Productions in Denver, CO, the album was released last year.
No newcomer to uplifting spirits, Johnny Burroughs works as a licensed minister and music pastor. His church upbringing serves him well on stage, where the red-headed frontman sings, dances, and screams audiences into a revival-like frenzy. His dynamite backing band includes a sizzling 4 piece horn section and tight 4 piece rhythm section that are as versatile as they are fun to watch. The band's live performances are capped by choreographed dancing, soaring solos, and funky grooves, with the goal of moving the audience to a joyful celebration by each show's closing tune.
The Burroughs have played prestigious festivals and venues including Bohemian Nights New West Fest, The Block Party, The Greeley Blues Jam, Boulder International Film Festival, The Fox Theatre, Denver Day of Rock, The Aggie Theatre, The Underground Music Showcase, Ophelia's Electric Soapbox, and The Fort Collins Music Experiment.
