Get ready to stomp your feet, clap your hands, and howl to the moon as Matt Ray and Those Damn Horses once again bring their “forget-what-troubles-ya” Americana to the Homegrown stage. Banjo? Check. Fiddle? Check. Jug? Check. Harmonica? Check. This band has all the ingredients to make you jump out of your skin and forget you’re just two hours from the Canadian border. Add a little (or a lot) of whiskey and you may as well be in the foothills of Kentucky under a blanket of stars. Matt Ray works banjo and guitar, Eric Krenz handles guitar and jug, “Trapper” Al Ranfranz blows harmonica, David “Flea” Tech saws the fiddle, Aaron Kaercher beats the drums and Kyle Westrick pokes the bass guitar.

8:30pm Thurs 5/3 at Bev’s Jook Joint
