Thursday 7/14 at 9 P.M. we have The Souveneers

Hailing from the Missouri River Valley, and drawing on the rich musical
heritage of Kansas City, THE SOUVENEERS are an original 5-piece
roots/Americana act that will set your dusty boots on fire.
The sound is reminiscent of 50’s Honky Tonk and Rockabilly, but with enough
Folk sensibility to sound more like a backroad in Texas than a Nashville
high-rise on Music Row.
Great songwriting shines through well-matched voices and impressive pickin’
to make THE SOUVENEERS much more than a mimic of nostalgic sounds. This
band’s unique and progressive take on the music they love, will break apart
any preconceived notions you may have about the terms “twang”, “Honkytonk”,
or “rockabilly”.
Releasing their debut album in 2014 through Little Class Records(KCMO), THE
SOUVENEERS are poised to take the nation by storm with their signature
sound and great live shows.

Formerly Filthy Children

It’s magick……

Funk. Soul. Disco. Flashes of city streets, Rocky Mountain peaks, a distant bayou. Lights. Bodies. Sweat. Unrelenting gut-punching rhythm. Ecstatic musical adoration of life. A blooming, buzzing r

oom where beautiful bodies bear funky-witness to the Super Magick dance-party experience! Take it in. Three buttery horns, a smokin female vocalist, drums, bass, guitar, and a smattering of analog synth burbles to fill the spaces. It’s magick; believe it.

Based out of Denver, Colorado, Super Magick (formerly Filthy Children) first hit the stage together in Nov, 2003. Since then, they have been laying it down all over the land, headlining gigs at nearly all of Colorado’s most respected venues and festivals including: Boulder’s The Fox, Aspen’s Belly Up, Steamboat’s Ghost Ranch Saloon and Schmiggities, Winter Park’s Ullr’s, Denver’s Cervantes, The Other Side, Quixote’s, The Bluebird and Gothic Theaters, Ft. Collins’ The Aggie Theater, Hodi’s Half-Note and Mishawaka Ampitheater, The Breckenridge Brew Fest, The Winter Park Beer Fest, The Sunnyside, LoHi and Highland’s Music Festival, South Park Music Festival, The Capitol Hill People’s Fair, as well as a headlining performance’s at Summerfest in Milwaukee two years in a row. Super Magick members have shared the stage with such funky musical luminaries as Galactic, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Rebirth Brass Band, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, J.J. Grey and Mofro, and Pimps of Joytime to name just a few.
Based out of Denver, Colorado, Filthy Children first hit the stage together in Nov, 2003. They recently changed their name to Super Magick. Since then, they have been laying it down all over town, landing regular gigs at nearly all of Colorado’s most respected venues and festivals including: Boulder’s The Fox, Aspen’s Belly Up, Steamboat’s Ghost Ranch Saloon, Denver’s Cervantes, Bluebird and Gothic Theaters, Ft. Collins’ The Aggie Theater, South Park Music Festival, Copper Mountain’s Ride for the Cure, LODO Music Festival, The People’s Fair, as well as a headlining performance at Summerfest in Milwaukee two years in a row.

This funk/jazz/rock septet serves up a funkinetic frenzy of fresh, original, mind moving music; reminiscent of such groove giants as Soulive, Greyboy Allstars, John Scofield, and Deep Banana Blackout. Filthy Children deliver action packed funk that’s sure to be “a big fat kick in the groove” (Colorado Daily).

Their debut EP, Knocked Up, “a force to be reckoned with” according to CDBaby, has been played on over 200 radio stations nationwide and has been chosen to be on multiple reality shows for MTV.

Filthy Children were also in the “On the Rise” section in the September/October 2006 issue of Relix magazine. Additionally, they were named best funk band in Denver’s premier magazine 5280 for 2007 and nominated in Colorado’s favorite alternative newspaper, Westword’s, “Best Of” in the funk category in 2008 & 2009.

Fate has brought this group of filthy, misfit all-stars together. Their large and rapidly growing fan base is a testament to their grand performances and mass appeal.

Bonnie & The Beard

April 2, 2015

April 10th at 9:30 P.M.

Bonnie and the Beard is a vivacious group–often quite salacious, lost deeply in dream.

Some say they live in a tent and practice juggling flaming arrows when they are not painting their faces and making moonshine. They spin tales of outlaws, redemption and longing through their own brand of boot-stomping americana gypsy rock.

They’ve shared the stage with the likes of DeVotchka, Nicole Atkins, Oakhurst; played Tour de Fat, Sunnyside Music Festival, several stints at the Underground Music Festival, embarked on several tours and shared the stage with many rising acts from across the nation.

“They deliver their songs with such a charming playful seriousness it’s hard not to get sucked into the fun.”
(Peter Washington, Concerted Effort)

They began playing together after spending a hazy summer writing as the old, dusty cowboys they admired. Wandering through canyons and sharing fireside meals with their wolf dog, their stories of reckless rebels began to pour into rousing and passionate songs. They’re almost a wheelin’ dealin’ circus band. Their raw energy and husky voices conjure up images of open desert road, nights under the stars and rusty Cadillacs.

“Bonnie and the Beard possess a sound that is both sweet and sultry yet still raw and rawkus. Combining a bit of delta blues with indie-rock sensibilities, Bonnie and Beard sing about the struggle of human existence with the pipes to knock the dust off the highest rafters of any smoky bar.”
(Illegal Pete’s / Suburban Home Records)BonnieBeardflyer

The band has some of the regions most talented and experienced musicians, and each member just seems to add the right piece to the puzzle behind every song. A band you don’t want to miss if you’re in the Front Range area

March, 13th Von Stomper

March 12, 2015

Inspired by the lonely, the downtrodden, and the insane– the voices of Von Stomper, a Colorado based five piece, reach into the expansive lexicon of American roots music and make it howl. Their high energy live show has left boots tattered and dance floors torn time and time again.

Since August of 2013 Von Stomper has played over one hundred shows in thirteen states and counting – sharing the stage with acts such as The Dirty River Boys, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Swear & Shake, Uncle Lucious, Wood & Wire, The Yawpers, Local H and many more. With their self-titled debut studio album-recorded at UI Soundstudios – they continue to pave their way through America’s countrysides and city skylines.

“With vintage sound and modern swagger, Von Stomper excellently couples old-time folk Americana with some rock attitude and almost vaudevillian flair. The self-titled debut shows a new band that is already chiseling its name into the American songbook with a rootsy, bluesy style and a little bit of circus freak panache.”

The Pond Biography

Bob Matthews Helped Shape Rock n Roll Music and how it is recorded, now he has a last request for his, “Bucket List.”

Bob Matthews- Bass guitar, producer and inspiring sage: Bob’s career started in the 1960’s with a band named The Grateful Dead. Bob produced and engineered on many of the Dead’s classic records. “ Workingman’s Dead”, “Live Dead” and “Garcia” are just a few of his credits.

Bob Matthews Helped Shape Rock n Roll Music and how it is recorded, now he has a last request for his, “Bucket List.”

Bob Matthews was an integral part of Rock n Roll history. He was the “Bob,” in the famous “Bob and Betty,” duo who recorded much of the early Grateful Dead albums, both Live and Studio albums. Bob is recognized for his Live Recording and for keeping music honest and real.

In the Fall of 2012, Thanksgiving Day, Bob spent the better part of a day on the operating table in a hospital in the East Bay of California. Diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma Cancer, Bob has been given limits on the time he has here on Earth. As part of his, “Bucket List,” Bob has decided to spend more time with his first love, Music.

As a young man, Bob was the first Bass Player for New Riders of the Purple Sage. Keeping up with playing with a new band, and still doing the lion’s share of the production work and sound engineering for the Grateful Dead and others, became too much, so Bob had to decide which way he wanted to go… Bob continued working with the technical side of music. The rest, as they say, is history. Bob assisted in or produced some 10 Platinum albums. He was involved as Sound Engineer for some of the Grateful Dead’s most famous tours; Europe ’72, the Pyramid Shows in Egypt, and the Wall of Sound Tour, just to name a few.

So, our request is simple; we wish to take Bob out on one last tour…this time, as a musician… Bob is an excellent bass player in his own right. He was the first bass player for New Riders of the Purple Sage, and is a valued member of The Pond, (Formerly Cement Pond,) as bass player, writer, collaborator and, of course, Producer and Sound Engineer

Lindells Biography
When JJ Cale goes dancing across the floor during your sound check, you know you’re doing it right; one more reason for the Lindells’ well deserved reputation for making music that’s “engaging, wide-ranging and diversified”. It’s inspired by the deep, high mountains and vast, lonely deserts of the American West. Their songs get inside you and dance down into your dreams – you just might wake with one of their songs in your head!

With standout songwriting and their “signature sound”, the Lindells (rhymes with bell) burn through and defy all kinds of musical boundaries with music that’s fierce and stunning. Based on breathtaking vocal harmonies and amazing, intuitive playing, the Lindells’ music grooves with their own brand of psychedelic mountain folk and rock – it’s intimate, supple and sultry, with a definitive underlying hard-earned grit.
