Poco was one of the first groups to pioneer Country-Rock music. The harmonies and instruments of Country mixed with Rock'n'Roll rhythms, paved the way for supergroups like the Eagles and while hits for Poco were few, their influence runs deep in both Country and Pop music. Richie Furay and Jim Messina formed Poco after Buffalo Springfield broke up in 1968 when Stephen Stills and Neil Young left the group.
Throughout the 90’s and first decade of 2000 Poco, led by Rusty Young, Paul Cotton and Jack Sundrud with the additon of drummer George Lawrence continued to be a recording and touring force logging in 100 shows a year. In addition to releasing a new studio CD: “Running Horse” in 2003, a live DVD: “Keeping The Legend Alive” in 2005, “Bareback At Big Sky” in 2006 and an unplugged CD: “The Wildwood Sessions” in 2007.
In 2010, a new Poco era dawned led by Rusty Young, Jack Sundrud and George Lawrence with additional musicians. The band always maintained their musical superiority and the new incarnation will continue to be musically superior with a foot in the past, present and future. As Rusty Young says, “Hang on, this could be quite a ride”.
