    ColonBlow combines the catchy hooks of Cheap Trick with the spirit of Barenaked Ladies. 

     “Devil In Disguise”, the new album by ColonBlow, is a fitting description for the band. Spanning several genres, ColonBlow has managed to wrap rock, blues, singer-songwriter type acoustic, and comedy into one album. The album ranges from self-reflection to straight out, hook-laced, good-time Rock & Roll!
