Featuring: AZ Hired Guns
The Arizona Hired Guns—freshly formed in Flagstaff, Arizona—is a five-piece outfit steeped in the rich harmonies and keen instrumentation of Southern rock ‘n’ roll and blues. Sporting decades of experience each, the Hired Guns blaze forth with each member exchanging growling vocals while blending their respective sounds on guitar, bass, drums and keys. The group leans heavily into soulful guitar, often punched up with weeping slide that groans like the old ponderosa pines that envelop Flagstaff. With an ever-tuned ear toward the blues and constant energy that whips the crowd into a dancing fever spiced with Southern soul, the Hired Guns are set apart in skill and style.

Eric Anderson has taken Flagstaff by storm. Every time Eric takes a solo, all within listening range pause in amazement at his musical talent. Blues in Northern AZ? Yes indeed!
Joe Kopicki
Joe Kopicki
Joe Kopicki entertained audiences in and around his hometown of Scranton Pennsylvania for many years. Working as a solo artist, band member and fronting his own band. Playing stages both large and small.

His first love is the blues, and he is known for being a blues performer with a soulful voice and authentic blues guitar chops. Whether it is cover of a classic song or an original tune, he delivers it from the heart and in his own style, never looking to imitate but always paying homage to the great artist that inspire him.

A recent transplant to Mesa Arizona, Joe has enjoyed breaking into a new music scene. This past year has also been a creative one, working on recording original music which will be released in 2017.
