Friday 12/21: Hillbilly Hellcats
Chuck Hughes is known for his 17 year association with Hillbilly Hellcats as the band’s main songwriter and guitarist, as well as his prior association with the Denver-based Stick Band. He has self-booked and toured the U.S.A. and Europe extensively. Four albums of the Hillbilly Hellcats are available on Amazon and iTunes.
In the last year Chuck has played California, Florida, Alaska, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin on a fly-in basis, playing with local bassists and drummers, playing Hillbilly Hellcats songs. When home in Colorado, he freelances, playing guitar for the Atomic Drifters, Dixie Lead Foot and the Chrome Struts, and the Royals, so as not to overplay the Hillbilly Hellcats in a small area.
Many of his songs are heard daily in instrumental form on major TV networks, including Desert Car Kings, Court TV, The Food Channel, and the History channel.
