Write Minded
Write Minded
Based out of the Foothills of Colorado, Write Minded is a fresh and tasteful addition to the National music scene. With a unique mixture of hip-hop, rock, funk, reggae, and soul, Write Minded pushes the confining boundaries of genre to bring you something brand-new.
The group materialized when Sam and Jesse branched from a local collective and began focusing on an acoustic hip-hop set with added percussion from Jonah. In preparation for a larger gig, TurtleBear, Fofo, and Willy slid right in bringing flavors of psychedelic rock, true funk, electronic hip hop, and so many other tasty sounds that added a multitude of dynamics. What formed out of the experience was an exclusive blend of music that ultimately developed into Write Minded.
Things took off after the release of the Write Minded Demo, and just one year later, Write Minded released their debut album, "Eye Above".
Great Salmon Famine
Great Salmon Famine
The Great Salmon Famine is a five-piece fusion funk band based out of Fort Collins CO. GSF designs their high-energy repertoire to include something for everyone, with smooth transitions encompassing many different musical styles. We want you to dance!
Rastasaurus
Rastasaurus
Hailing from Denver, CO and playing their own unique style dubbed as "New American Reggae" Rastasaurus has expanded quickly in the exploding Denver music scene. Mixing a blend of influences from improvisational, reggae, rock and everything in between the band leaves a lasting musical impression everywhere they go. Centered around the prolific songwriting of Justus Lacewell (vocals, guitar), mixing thick, psychedelic grooves of Eric Ciccone (lead guitar) and the smooth, funky rhythms of Sam Lafalce (bass) and Sam Neihaus (drums) round out the quartet.

With their original songs featuring an infusion of reggae with elements of funk, rock and roll, improvised jamming and dub, Rastasaurus is constantly exploring and expanding its own unique blend of American reggae.
Shovelin Stone
Shovelin Stone
With roots embedded in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and a sound unhinged in the capital of Texas, Shovelin Stone is a music almost as unique as the friendship it stems from. A shared passion for old-timey bluegrass is what brought Makenzie and Zak together, but it's the unknowing joy for the moment and the obsession with the complications that life brings that continues to push the duo forward. Within heartfelt lyrics and a unique musical composition the folk sound that projects from these two is not only going to get the audience thinking but on their feet. The road is winding but one thing is for sure that with these two at the wheel it's going to be a wild ride.
