ABOUT THE BURROUGHS: Steeped in classic soul standards and outfitted with modern flair, The Burroughs are a nine piece band with a powerhouse sound that has been electrifying audiences across Colorado and beyond. Since 2013, the band has lit up stages with their trademark brand of “Sweaty Soul Music,” quickly earning their rightful place as one of the best live bands in the region.

The Burroughs’ latest release is a digital 45 of hard-hitting funk tracks titled Love and Unity, centered around a message of uplighting and uniting audiences on the dance floor. The two tunes were produced by guitarist and producer Eric Krasno, best known for his work with acts that include Soulive, Lettuce, and Tedeschi Trucks Band. Love and Unity” is an audacious, over-the-top, party-inducing track that features group vocals and layered synthesizers. The heavier, harder-rocking B-side, “We Got To Stand”, presents raw and spacey vocals that sit atop a classically overdriven lead guitar.

No newcomer to uplifting spirits, Johnny Burroughs has a background working as a licensed minister and music pastor. His church upbringing serves him well on stage, where the red-headed frontman sings, dances, and screams audiences into a revival-like frenzy. His dynamite backing band includes a sizzling 4 piece horn section and tight 4 piece rhythm section that are as versatile as they are fun to watch. The band’s live performances are capped by choreographed dancing, soaring solos, and funky grooves, with the goal of moving the audience to a joyful celebration by each show’s closing tune.

Since the band’s start, The Burroughs have always embraced their hometown of Greeley, Colorado, with a passion for community outreach. Previous partnerships have amplified the work of great organizations like the Weld Food Bank, Greeley Boys and Girls Clubs, and Habitat for Humanity. The band’s latest mission is an ongoing partnership with Greeley-Evans District 6 Schools titled #BandsGiveBack- a campaign for local artists to pledge money and time dedicated towards providing all area students with access to music education.  Learn more at: www.theburroughssoul.com
