“Cobalt and the Hired Guns” Play Synergy
Cobalt and the Hired Guns is a durable rock band that originated among some friends, Unitarian Universalist youth who attended youth con. They’ll be making a team effort (okay, enough with the puns), playing the Synergy Worship at General Assembly this year on Friday, June 21, between 8:30–10PM. (Check the GA schedule here.) Their music is described as enthusiastic, “shout-it-out” and fun – and how can you beat that?
From their website: Cobalt & the Hired Guns is about love and guts, energy and enthusiasm – refusing to pretend they aren’t having fun.
Friends since they were just little buckaroos, the boys of Cobalt & the Hired Guns have always aspired to create an album to match their rambunctious live shows. It’s finally here! Their new record, Everybody Wins!, aims for the rafters with a cherry bomb explosion of poppy punk, barroom ballads, power pop, Ska, horny rock and good humor. Following up 2008’s Jump the Fence – their first Carbon Neutral album- Everybody Wins! continues the tradition of the band’s commitment to art and environmentalism- and includes their fullest lineup of 20 different players (not all at the same time).
