Cowgirl's Train Set

RENEGADE FOLK

Lawrence, Kansas based band with high energy that will make you dance and scream.

 

Cowgirl's Train Set has evolved over the years into this cacophony of sound. Taking folk roots and twisting them with gipsy, swing, punk, and anything they can get their hands on. Based in Lawrence, Kansas and making their way around the states leaving dance floors destroyed. 

Cowgirl's Train Set ha evolucionado a lo largo de los años en esta cacofonía de sonido. Tomando raíces folk y torcer con gitana, el swing, el punk, y cualquier cosa que puedan tener en sus manos. Con sede en Lawrence, Kansas y haciendo su camino alrededor de los estados, dejando pistas de baile destruidas.

 
Mike Calvillo: Born in Wichita, KS and raised in Hutchinson, KS, plays with an aggressive fury and writes/sings a slew of dark lyrics. He has traveled around the states taking in whatever he could find and channeled it into sing alongs, jigs, and punk driven melodies. He is notorious for creating pirate shanties and theatrical ballads that will make your blood boil. Mike is one of the two original founding members of the band, he helps lead the group off the rails.

Hank O everybody!!! This phenomenal bass player came to join the ride a few years after the start. From Hutchinson, KS this monster on an upright bass will blow you away with his aggressive jazz punk style. Influenced by the late great Kirk Rundstrom and many more, Hank refuses to not be heard. Whether it is a love ballad about hogging the bed or screaming to kill kill kill, you won't be disappointed.

Charles Buck III (aka Bad Chuck): Born in Chicago, IL and raised in the great Lawrence, KS. Charles tears away with heart felt lyrics and his own awe-inspiring style on the banjo that braches out from classic Scruggs style into unique patterns ready to tantalize your earbuds. He is the other original founding member of the band and a graduate from the University of Kansas. Charles fell in love with the banjo and this rowdy band and never looked back.
