Michael Hornbuckle Band
Michael Hornbuckle has been bringing blues and rock music to people for 18 years. Homegrown in the Mile High City, as was his father, legendary bluesman Bobby Hornbuckle who had Michael backing him on drums at 13. While Bobby's journey ended in 96', Michael took over the torch along with brother Brian(bass).  

Inheriting Bobby's old Gibson 335, the brothers began working wherever, whenever, and cutting their first recording. In 1998 "Pass The Torch" was released. It's a raw, respected blues/rock album including; original cuts, covers such as Creams' version of Outside Woman Blues, and a tip of the hat to the man who passed on his love for blues, with a Bobby Hornbuckle original, Down In The Valley. 

Early 2000’s after a Red Rocks appearance warming up the Doobie Brothers, he spent time touring the country with Texas blues monster Vince Converse, and releasing the acoustic blues album Conbuckle Station "Here Come The Blues" on New Shoes Records.  
"Lost & Found By Trial & Error" was released in '05. It was an opportunity to evolve a songwriting style, as well as a defining vocal and guitar sound 
A happenstance meeting in Los Angeles in 2012 with world class Universal Picture music producer, and former member of Mother's Finest, Alex 'Ace' Baker, produced the album Virtue & Vice... 

After a 2015 appearance at the Telluride Blues Fest, the Mile High Blues Society recognized Michael by awarding him: Best Blues Band, Best Self Produced Album, and sent him and his band to Memphis to represent Colorado at the International Blues Challenge.

2016 finds Hornbuckle teaming up with Ace Baker again for his latest release, due out Sep. 2016. Michael is also nominated in this years Rock Awards for best songwriter, best song, best male vocalist, and best blues band.
