Soulcraft hosts hot country rock band

Get out your dancin’ boots because Denver-based country rock band Extra Gold is bringing their unique, energetic dance music to Soulcraft Brewing Co., 248 W. U.S. Hwy. 50 in Salida, Saturday, April 28.

Getting the party started at 7 p.m. will be the local Catfish Waldrip Band with a half-hour of their best music, featuring Brian Waldrip, Justin Murphy and bluegrass legend Bruce Hayes.

Extra Gold formed in 2017 as the house band for Denver’s only monthly country music showcase and has crafted a country music cocktail that is equal parts golden-era country revival, folk and rock ’n’ roll.

With the addition of upright bass in the rhythm section, combined with pedal steel and fiddle, the band plays their cards. They waltz through tender three-part harmony ballads before inciting two-steppin,’ beer-slingin’ dance parties that have placed them in venues with modern-day honky-tonk heroes like Whitey Morgan and Jesse Dayton as well as future household names like Paul Cauthen and Zephaniah Ohora.
