Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns Continue to Evolve

Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns brought in the new year with a stellar performance at the Tempe Block Party on New Year's Eve. Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns may be the Arizona version of the nationally known group Roomful of Blues. Both bands have been around for decades with constant changes in personnel, but they always get the best musicians and have good followings.

Rich Brydle, rhythm guitarist and band manager for Cold Shott, was happy with the crowd's reaction. "People were dancing, laughing, clapping and giving us high fives," he says. "Folks were telling us that our stage was the best, so I think we hit the mark."
