The Burroughs

Since humble beginnings in the summer of 2013, The Burroughs have been playing and dancing their way into the hearts of dedicated fans throughout Northern Colorado and beyond. The band's trademark “sweaty soul music” features a polished four-piece horn section, a powerhouse rhythm section, and charismatic and multi-talented front-man Johnny Burroughs. Together the band's nine members create a sound that invokes the spirit of soul heroes such as Otis Redding, Ray Charles, and Etta James. Though The Burroughs got their start covering classic music from some of their favorite artists, the band truly shines on their collection of catchy and dance-able originals. Their first full-length album titled Sweaty Greeley Soul was recorded live at the Moxi Theater in Greeley, CO in May of 2015 and released in July of 2015. They are currently working on their first full length studio album with Denver engineer and producer Colin Bricker. The Burroughs have opened for national touring acts including the Steve Miller Band and have performed in historic Front Range venues including The Aggie in Fort Collins, the Boulder Theater, and The High Dive in Denver. The band proudly calls Greeley, Colorado home.
