Download Days 10: Horace Greene


Good news, rock n roll friends!  Oshkosh 3-piece rock n roll outfit Horace Greene has shared with us a tasty song for October’s Download Days.  This marks the 10th download days download, and these downloadable Download Days downloads have been awesome.  From the Suitcase to Redhawks to Auralai to Holly & Plastic to ASUMAYA and the others, Download days has provided some music from absolutely awesome bands, and Horace Greene will fit very nicely into this collection.

Horace Greene celebrates a raw blues garage sound blending  a bit of midwestern psychedelic rock tucked into a 60’s pop rock balloon.  The band, which has quietly become one of the OI’s favorite new bands (somehow we did not hear these guys until this summer) has been playing a pretty busy show schedule over the past few months, even claiming victory in the Algoma Club’s first ever Battle of the Bands early September.

The band has one album out – “Early American Ice Cream”, recorded in 2016, and is currently looking to record a new album early 2018.

You can catch Horace Greene at a slew of upcoming shows, including at Legends on October 7, Gibson Music Hall in Appleton on Oct 27, the October 28 Halloween bash at Twisted Roots, at O’Marro’s November 3rd, and Cranky Pats in Neenah on November 22. The band will also be playing at the January 2018 Racket Fest Preview private party, which is very swell.

In their own words:  “Our music is born out of our love for untamed 50’s-70’s blues and rock n’ roll; add a big helping of 60’s soul music and you have our main roots. The future of Horace Greene albums hopes to bring in elements of some of our other favorite genres such as psychedelic rock, 80’s synth stuff, Tom Waits (he gets his own genre), and whatever else tickles our pickles. Songwriting, playing those songs live, and bringing people together (whether that be in the community or at a show) is what it’s all about for us. We’re always trying to write a song/album we like better than the last one, a mission which thankfully, has no end.”
