Cinco De Mayo 2018

May 1, 2018

A self-labeled “misfit” band of Colorado, Random Shuffle will play a show starting at 9:30 p.m. Friday at Victoria Tavern, 143 N. F. St.

The ensemble features Jeremy Brown on bass, Damien Myers on guitar, Nate Merkley, also on guitar, Simone McGinnis on trumpet, Wyatt Trigg on percussion and vocals and Rosy Emslie-Myers, 4, on egg shakers.

The band said they represent the standpoint of the service industry in Salida and aim to cater to working-class concertgoers who want variety in their local concert choices, instead of being another bluegrass cover band.

The band’s founding members, Brown and Myers, said they worked together in a restaurant for a number of months before beginning to play together. The rest fell to fate, Brown said.

“The smiles found each other,” said Trigg.

The band’s name, Random Shuffle, arose from a need to describe the music they play. Without an exact genre and sounds ranging from Santana to Primus, the band decided upon the name Random Shuffle, like on an iPod.

“We’re definitely not a bluegrass jam band,” said Myers. “When people come to our shows, they get confused, but it all sounds good together.”

They said they just released a new single, available at, called “Do It Too,” which will soon be available on iTunes and YouTube.
