A native of Denver, Michael Hornbuckle has played on some of the most renowned stages in Colorado including Red Rocks, Coors Amphitheater, The Fillmore and the Pepsi Center. He played alongside ZZ Top for the Final Farewell Concert at McNichols Sports Arena and for the inaugural concert at the Pepsi Center opening for Freddy Jones. Michael got his start at age 13 when his father, blues legend, Bobby Hornbuckle, put him to work in his band playing drums with brother Brian on bass. Michael calls the next four years spent playing with his father the most important musical schooling that he could have received. After the loss of Bobby in 1996, Michael and Brian started a trio shortly after. Michael made a rather quick transformation from drums to guitar. Michael's soulful sound honors his father with every note. Locally as well as on the road Michael has shared the stage with top class acts including Johnny Winter, The Allman Brothers, Joe Bonnamassa, Tab Benoit, Lynyrd Skynyrd, James Brown, The Doobie Brothers, Coco Montoya, Jim Vaughn and Ted Nugent. Thanx to the many opportunities provided by Lewis & Floorwax from 103.5 the FOX.
