“Working with Rich and the band Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns is always a pleasure. Rich manages the band very professionally and the band members are not only talented and fun, they understand what it takes to be a success in the corporate entertainment arena. Enjoy your next party with Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns!”

Marguerite Berry,  2011 for Marguerite Berry & Associates


“We produce a well-loved music festival with a reputation for top notch local, regional and national blues artists. Cold Shott & The Hurricane Horns are an exceptional blues band not only for the Valley, but for the entire southwest! Richard and the rest of the band play searing blues licks with tight driving horns which make them a must-see blues band. You don’t even have to be a blues fan to appreciate the energy and talent they bring to every performance. They are truly a gem on the Valley blues scene! We love to have them perform!”

Martin Dickey, CFEE  & Special Events Manager-Marketing/Sponsorship Manager

“Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns are a high energy, dynamic band that brings excitement to the crowd. Their music is fun and appeals to all ages. They are professional and thorough from the first phone call, through the contract details, all the way to the performance and personal attention they give to their fans. Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts looks forward to Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns entertaining their patrons for our Annual events, such as Sunday A’Fair, Scottsdale Art Festival, Scottsdale Culinary Festival and anywhere else we can find during a season to use their talent. It’s a pleasure to work with these guys.”

“The Arizona Cardinals have been pleased to have Cold Shott and The Hurricane Horns perform on our “Great Lawn” stage prior to home games for 2 seasons.  Fans of all ages and affiliations come out to enjoy a high energy performance that helps to enhance the tailgating spirit.  Rich Brydle and his band have always maintained the highest level of professionalism, and create a fun, family friendly experience for everyone.“

J. Scott Gavin,    2008 for The Arizona Cardinals Organization


“As the Special Events Coordinator at the Desert Botanical Garden I have had the pleasure of working with Richard Brydle and Cold Shott and The Hurricane Horns over the past two Jazz In The Garden Series.  It is always a joy working with the band as they are extraordinarily professional as well as incredibly talented.  I would highly recommend Cold Shott and The Hurricane Horns to any organization or group looking for a high energy, multi-talented R&B, Soul, Funk, Blues, Rock or Jazz band.  They are truly the definition of fun.“

Courtney Goff,  2008 for The Desert Botanical Garden


“On behalf of Phoenix Sister Cities, please accept our gratitude and appreciation for Cold Shott and The Hurricane Horns’ participation in the 2008 WorldFest.  Your groups’ performance on the SRP World Stage was superb and we received nothing but raves from those in attendance.
