Kampfire Kowboys / Press

“St. Charles-based band singing a happy tune”

“Best country band in Chicago, IL 2014”

“The Kampfire Kowboys have the guitar energy of Brad Paisley and Vince Gill, the fiddle of Charlie Daniels, the traditional country sound of Zac Brown and lead vocals with a hint of Elvis meets Raul Malo [of The Mavericks],” Colton says. “We like to call it ‘fired-up guitars and smokin’ fiddles.’””

“It's going to be sort of a rockin' back and forth between fiddle and guitar. The best way to put it is that we are still a country rock band, but with due respect to traditional country music.”

“Kampfire Kowboys Work to Corral Audiences ”

“Kampfire Kowboys, "Give it a Whirl," "Our top pick's of things to do."”

“Kampfire Kowboys Kick Kareer Into High Gear "Kampfire Kowboys the best new band in the area. Period." ”

“Tom Colton and his earnest, Elvis-without-the-drugs meets Roy Orbison voice.”

“They may call themselves Kampfire Kowboys, but these guys can rock That was evident Thursday night, when they brought their unique country/rock/folk sound to Chord on Blues for a concert celebrating the release of thier new CD, "somewhere blue." With thundering drums and searing guitar licks, the four-piece group played with the intensity of a larger band and should have no trouble handling a bigger venue like Synergy II in West Chicago, where they will perform July 24. Kampfire Kowboys is fronted by St. Charles resident Tom Colton, whose country-ish, out-on-the-dusty-trail voice is perfectly suited for the band. He also handles guitar duties.”

“The Kampfire Kowboys play catchy tunes that leave the listener feeling good.”

“So round up some of your friends and go see the Kampfire Kowboys from Kane County. You'd be krazy not to.”
