I think my favorite state for bands is Colorado. Some of the greatest bands I've ever heard have come from the Rocky Mountains. Halden Wofford and the Hi Beams is a perfect example of this. This band blends honky tonk, rock and bluegrass seamlessly and the best part about them is that they really seem to have fun when they're playing. Oh! Also, they yodel. Any band that yodels is ok with me.
