You will YARN for more!


Down in the dimly lit black cellar walls of The Lost Horizon, the country/rock ‘n’ roll group, Yarn, began to set up their stage. Yarn’s front man, Blake Christiana, confidently led these blue-jeaned boys into their strum heavy tracks. You can tell these guys thoroughly enjoy being up on stage by their swaying heads and the power in their voices.

Yarn has a unique way of not sounding country but still keeping a little twang in their chords. They have an intricate mix of whaling electric guitar and rock ‘n’ roll/country beats. Most songs are about love, alcohol and life lessons [things we can all relate to.] As lead singer Christiana orders vodka with lots of ice; he gets right back into the music as a harmonica chimes in, along with a train track beat.

The refreshing thing about this band is how down-to-earth they are. Blake Christiana talks to the audience about where they were the night before and how happy they are to be back in upstate New York and telling the small crowd how thankful the whole band is that we came out to hear them play, he said, “We’ll keep coming back if you do!” I think it is extremely admirable to address the audience and really connect with them on a personal level; it’s something the fans really appreciate.

According to, the members are Blake Christiana on vocals and guitar, Trevor on guitar, Andrew Hendryx on Mandolin, Rick Bugel on bass, Bobby Bonhomme on drums, and Rod Hohl on electric guitar. As you can see, Yarn has an interesting potpourri of instruments and it all blends beautifully. The whole ensemble really has an enticing energy onstage.

Some of their most popular songs are “Don’t Break My Heart Again,” “Tennessee” and “No Future Together.” Yarn’s new album “Shine the Light On” came out this week; you can find it on their website, or at any live show you go to. Visit their website for more information.
