CC & The Riders (formerly Hogback Blues Band) is a five-piece blues band specializing in traditional blues sound and style. Songs by legends of the blues such as Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Magic Sam, Little Walter and Albert King make up a large part of our song list, but we also play some R&B and soul tunes for variety and fun. CC & The Riders is:
Cass Clayton - Vocals
Dann Burke - Guitars, Vocals
"Sugar" Rich Liner - Harmonica, Keyboards
Jodie Woodward - Bass
Mike Ray - Drums
CC & The Riders has played on some of Colorado’s best-known stages (The Little Bear, Lincoln’s Roadhouse, The Rusty Bucket, Ziggies, Boulder Outlook, etc.) as well as intimate clubs, corporate outings and private functions. Regardless of the venue, we are always professional and work hard to please the audience. Repeat bookings, of course, are the highest honor and the truest measure of a band. Almost all the clubs, companies and individuals who have hired the Hogback Blues Band in the past, hired us again and continue to book us into the future.
