On the strength of this one hour, I'd say that Halden Wofford & The Hi*Beams are in the running for Best Live Country Band in America.--John Conquest, 3rd Coast Music Magazine, Austin, Tex.

With an unapologetic embrace of the twang, Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams ride out from the cutting edge cowtown of Denver, Colorado. Rootsy and real, neither revivalist nor retro, the Hi*Beams' brand of country music is as boundless and electrifying as America itself. From Red Rocks to rodeos, the Fillmore Auditorium to the back of a flatbed truck, to Prairie Home Companion, Kate Wolf Festival, and performing arts centers, Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams deliver an unforgettable and original night of American music.

Expanded Performance History | Current Calendar


Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams' throwback and stylish take on the honky tonk genre is a breath of fresh air amidst other wannabe retro acts. With some of the choicest players on the Front Range and a professionalism that is bar-none, the Hi*Beams landed themselves on the famed NPR show 'A Prairie Home Companion' in recent years and Wofford's distinct vocals continue to garner the band well-earned attention. - Marquee Magazine, Boulder, CO

Halden Wofford is a poet. The tracks on his brand new project Sinners & Saints are rich, funny and poignant short stories that come all wrapped up in the amazing musical chops of the Hi Beams. There's no fast forwarding on this CD - it's Halden's tour de force and was well worth the wait. -- Mollie O'Brien

Halden Wofford and the Hi Beams are without a doubt one of my favorite bands to have play at the Inn. They always pack the place with a smiling, dancing die-hard crowd. And they take that crowd for a ride where no other country band would dare go. --Brian Finn, Owner and Talent Buyer, Gold Hill Inn
