The Delta Sonics have been playing in Colorado since 1992, and have established themselves as one of the finest blues acts in the area with their solid musicianship and exciting live performances. Their musical stylings include Chicago Blues, West Coast Swing, New Orleans R&B, and some early Rock n' Roll. The band has won Westword's Best Blues Band Honors for four years in a row (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014).
Gumbo le Funque
Expect to hear some music that makes you want to jump up and dance when Gumbo le Funque hits the stage. Although the band plays a mix of traditional New Orleans tunes and some of their new original songs, they add a little funk to whatever they do.
John Weeks Band
John Weeks plays guitar and lives in Denver. John has been very active in the Denver blues scene for a number of years. He played with the Cedar Avenue Blues Band (which he started with Melanie Owen) and was with the Bluzinators prior to that. He was most recently the guitarist for Papa Juke prior to starting the John Weeks Band.
Like a fine single malt, music seems to get better with age. Kenny Perkins’ Wild Frontier siphons a plethora of old and new genres into a barrel and waits until it produces a taste pleasing to all the senses. B.B. King blues, Ben Harper alternative and Van Morrison lyricism underpin the slew of distorted guitars, rhythmic drums and raspy-yet-trained vocals that bite through the full-bodied album.
Stacey Turpenoff - The Band
Stacey continues to focus on collaboration of new original songs for her band while also learning popular as well as elusive cover tunes for her live shows. She especially enjoys singing blues, rock, oldies and anything from the time when music was really good! She enjoys making her audience want to dance, even if it’s while they’re sitting in their chair. She finds music that moves people, emotionally and physically, a driving force for her.
The blues...no apologies. This ain't rock dressed up as the blues. Digging deeper down to the roots of the American Musical Experience....The blues is a long train baby, swingin', jumpin', chuggin'...from Texas to Chicago, New Orleans to Los Angeles...all aboard, we got plenty of room.
The Custom Shop Band
The Custom Shop, from Louisville, CO, plays the blues, rock, R&B and Motown as well as its edgier original take in those genres.
