Based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, amiable country-rockers Amigo specialize in a winning blend of propulsive, Jonathan Richman/Doug Sahm-inspired rockabilly/roots rock and soulful, heartache-inducing folk-rock in the vein of Gram Parsons and the Band.
A honky tonk dance band with a punk rock heart, the trio formed in 2012 around the talents of guitarist/vocalist Slade Baird, drummer Adam Phillips, and bass player Craig Lentz. In 2014, the group set out on their first national tour in support of their Scott Solter- (Superchunk, the Mountain Goats) produced debut long-player, Might Could. 2017's sophomore effort, And Friends, saw the band deliver a rowdy yet intimate set that drew from a wide array of influences, including '50s doo wop, John Prine, Hank Williams, the Replacements, Tom Petty, and Dinosaur Jr. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
