Eric Straumanis

Saturday 7:15PM @ Equinox Brewing - Outdoor Patio

Echo. Grit. Jangle.

Eric Straumanis is a transplant from Iowa City who has been playing around Fort Collins for the past 14 years. As well as fronting his own bands, he preforms solo and has been a sideman to numerous songwriters including Jeff Finlin, Erik Lunde, David Zollo and Kelly Pardekooper. He was a member of John Magnie's Honky Tonk Happy Hour and has played as one of the "Robbies" for both years of the Las Waltz Again concerts that took place at Washington's in 2018 and 2019.

His original songs fall squarely into the Roots and Americana genres and he has been compared at times to Neil Young and Roger McGuinn. There's a dose of Tom Petty whimsy and George Harrison earthiness hidden in there as well.

Straumanis will be backed up by West Side Joe and the Men of Soul featuring Joe Schicke, Taylor Tesler and Steve Amedee; so limber up, put on your most comfortable dance shoes and let's have a party!
