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.

Useful Jenkins

June 6, 2015

tonight at 9!!

Useful Jenkins is a contemporary acoustic band with a foundation rooted in bluegrass, and readily taps into other genres, such as folk, funk, rock, and hip hop.  Their music generates emotion and sends a message to a wide range of listeners, giving them an eclectic group of followers from all walks of life.  The band is a 4 piece at its core (bass, lead acoustic, rhythm acoustic, mandolin) and has currently been integrating the violin as a fifth melodic layer.  4-part vocal harmonies accompany the wall of stringed instruments, leaving listeners with a strong, clean, and unique sound.  Useful Jenkins thrives on energy; they flourish in the moment and have an unmatched resonance with the crowd.  While frequenting Minneapolis, MN, the band was established in, and currently resides in Mankato, MN.

Formed as a 5 piece band in 2007, Useful Jenkins remained under-the-radar during their first few years performing.  Open mic’s and campfire jams were their source of inspiration, which allowed them to form a strong and intimate bond between band members and fans alike.  As their message grew, so did the network of friends who supported their direction.  In February of 2009, the band released their first full-length album “Fast Eddie” which was the catalyst for their initial, and continued success in the Minnesota music-festival scene.  Their second album, “Festival Express,” was released in September of 2012.  It provided a more dynamic sound by capturing the raw bluegrass elements of “Fast Eddie” and combining them with funk and soul.  Useful Jenkins continues to write and create music, on pace to release their third album in the spring of 2015.

The best way to experience Useful Jenkins is live in concert.  Whether you are barefoot at a festival or standing shoulder-to-shoulder in a theatre, you will undoubtedly feel the pulse of their music and leave the show with a smile on your face.  Their songs are memorable and easy to relate to, leaving them stuck in your head long after the performance.  So if you are a sucker for acoustic music with a strong message, do yourself a favor; call up a group of your closest friends, clear your calendar, and go see Useful Jenkins.  It’s a moment you will not soon forget.

4/30 Shawn James and the Shapeshifters

April 27, 2015

Shawn James brings extreme passion to his music. You feel it in the imaginative, highly nuanced songwriting and see it in the powerful live shows where there’s never the slightest hesitation and nothing is held back. And, most importantly, you can hear it resonate in Shawn’s most powerful instrument: the unique, soulful voice that sounds like it is literally being torn out of his heart…and it is something you won’t soon forget

Born on the south side of Chicago in 1986, singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Shawn James had a kind, hardworking Mother and a gambling, drunk and often abusive Father. His conflicted home life can still be heard in his music which can be full of contrasts — dark and light, anger and joy, earthy and aiarborne – while remaining gritty and real. Singing in church growing up, he was drawn to the emotional, ethereal power of music and its ability to affect people. It was there that he found his escape and learned how to harness his unique, soulful voice.

After playing in bands since the age of sixteen, Shawn moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas in January 2012. Attracted to the beauty of the natural state and even more impressed by Fayetteville’s diverse and thriving music scene, he began performing every chance he got. The singer, songwriter – who also plays guitar, piano and numerous other instruments — literally turned himself into a one man band. Regardless of where he was playing — on the street, in a bar or at a house party – Shawn’s intensity, inimitable voice and hard-driving folk/soul/blues hybrid made for a performance you wouldn’t soon forget.

By August of 2012, Shawn James had recorded and released his first full-length album, SHADOWS. A local videographer, Anna Hutchison, made music videos for the songs Midnight Dove and The Shadow while another song from SHADOWS, The Wanderer, was used in a Harley-Davidson commercial.

Around this time, friends introduced Shawn to musicians Chris Overcash (violin, viola) and Baker (mandolin, tenor banjo) who were soon asked to join the band, which took on the name Shawn James & The Shapeshifters. “One of the reasons I came up with the name ‘Shapeshifters” is because musicians have a tendency to come and go,” James explains. “It also ties in perfectly with the theme of the trilogy EP’s coming out this year, plus I’ve always been interested in mythology and folklore, so the name stuck.” After embarking on a two week tour of Colorado, the band released a live video showing them performing a cover of John Legend’s Who Did That To You which went viral, garnering an impressive 400,000 plus views on numerous sites.

With the addition of Nick Shoulders (banjo, harmonica), Phillip Farris (bass) and Nick Futch (drums), Shawn James & The Shapeshifters is now undeniably a full band. “I can do so much more musically with the band,” says James, who continues to write all of the music. “We all love to play and our combined energy adds a new dimension to the performance.” The Shapeshifters first recording as a band was THE WOLF (February 2013), the first release from an ambitious trilogy of connected concept EPs — THE WOLF, THE BEAR and THE HAWK

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

March 12, 2015

Their music is a journey through the mind of a conflicted yet compassionate soul. The Hashtones love for life, humanity and good times is brilliantly conveyed and displayed first hand at their over the top high-energy live performances.

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.
