With songs ranging from "Folsom Prison Blues" to "Sweet Child of Mine", Narrow Gauge will pull out all the stops to entertain everyone: young and old, rich or poor, dancers, non-dancers and even those of you who just shouldn"t dance in public. Not many bands can go from Cash to Clapton and from "Chicken Fried" to "Free Bird" without blinking an eye but these boys have no fear. They have a dangerously powerful rhythm section and are not afraid to use it. The guitar picking will astound you, the vocals will amaze and if you ask them, they are pretty darn good looking too. Narrow Gauge performs throughout the Rocky Mountain region and the amount of fun they bring makes some wonder if there ought to be a law against it. So come on out and judge for yourself, just remember, don"t try this at home, these boys are trained professionals.
