With a name derived from the hoodoo folklore traditions that are woven into the fabric of the blues, Hotfoot builds their repertoire from the roots of American music. The current incarnation of the band features Tom Pakele on vocals, harmonica and guitar, Shawn Cupolo on guitar and vocals, Linda Flinkman on keyboards, Jim Sullivan on bass, and Jason Pawlina on drums. Hotfoot performs both as an acoustic/electric duo as well as a full band, with material spanning the realms of country and Chicago blues, folk and Americana, and modern blues/rock. All music on this site has been performed live, with no editing or overdubbing. Originally founded in 2002 by Cupolo, the band has played throughout Colorado in a variety of line-ups, appearing at some of the Front Range’s best venues.
