Gypsy-Rock Band Hectic Hobo to Play Free Show Thursday
November 5, 2013 — Hectic Hobo, a band based in Salt Lake City, Utah, performs a free concert Thursday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Union Gardens.
Part of the weekly Studio WYO concert series created by Associated Student Technological Services (ASTEC), the concert also will feature Laramie rocker Jeff Duloz, who has played in bands such as Sageland Stomp and Flatbed Love Truck.
Hasen Cone, who sings and plays the banjo and guitar for Hectic Hobo, says his band is “a creaky mix of accordion, banjo, saloon piano, murder ballad lyrics and whatever percussive devices we pick up on the train ride over.”
Hectic Hobo, a band that has played Laramie four times previously, has toured and released two albums during the past four years.
“I try to write songs that bring up big questions and take on big issues. Through strange stories about crazy people, our songs attempt to spark a thought process in our listeners,” Cone says. “Our goal is to basically have as much fun as possible playing as many shows as we can. We want to be able to keep making the music we love, make it better, and give it to more people.”

Studio WYO hopes to foster and support regional music in Laramie by creating an unforgettable live music experience featuring top-of-the-line audio-visual equipment staffed by professional student technicians.
