King Cardinal - Ready to Sing for Fort Collins


King Cardinal have been singing their heart wrenching songs for only a few years, but audiences and critics alike have embraced their unique style. What primarily began as a solo venture by frontman Brennan Mackey quickly turned into a favorite Colorado band.  Purposely adding members to not only fit the sound but the personality of the music as well, King Cardinal have found their stride.  Often called Americana or even Alt Folk, the band connects with a crowd through their honest songwriting and ability to tell their story through song. The Denver based outfit have been perfecting their craft and are poised to take the national scene by storm. You'll want to make sure you see King Cardinal live as part of our Concerts at the Armory on Thursday May 4th. They are sharing the bill with another artist on the rise, Brent Cobb for a truly amazing night of music. Make sure to get your tickets in advance HERE
