 Stonehorse Band

Stonehorse Band is a five-piece, high-energy band that combines Classic Rock, Contemporary Rock, and Contemporary Country music with flawless musicality. Stonehorse Band was born from three of the original members of Cold Creek Band.  Ethan Epling, Kandi Johnston-Epling, and Tim Amey envisioned an energetic, party-ready band that kept people rockin’ all night long with the BEST cover music from the 80’s, 90’s, and today…and Stonehorse Band was born.  As Cold Creek quickly made their way to one of Southwest Missouri’s most requested bands, Stonehorse is soon to conquer.  Stonehorse Band delivers an electrifying performance, excellent musicianship, and just plain great party music.  Stonehorse Band is known for being multi-faceted, and can easily transition between musical genres. All in all, Stonehorse Band is one of the most unpredictable, exciting bands to ever come into any venue in which they perform.
