Columbia, MO.'s own
THE HOOTEN HALLERS
GEORGIA SLIM (of I WANT WHISKY)
The Hooten Hallers are a blues, soul, and rock n' roll band from Columbia, MO. Known for their raucous live shows and influenced heavily by the canon of American roots music, this hard touring band does everything in their power to bring that music to you.
"Columbia, Mo.'s Hooten Hallers crackle like Jiffy Pop, producing a
swampy garage-blues stomp that's greasy enough to tame the worst
Jersey Shore hair. The duo evokes the energetically grimy, white-boy
blues of Scott Biram and Bob Log III, whose somewhat-unhinged brand of
showmanship they also share. It's an enthusiastic ethos they've taken
to describing as "putting a dog on it.""
- Chris Parker, Colorado Springs Independent
"[The Hooten Hallers'] rambunctious live show attacks audiences like a
freight train that could hop the track at any moment."
- Walton Murphy , Vox Magazine
