Apex Vibe is a 5 piece Reggae-Rock band nestled in the city of Denver, CO. They are not your normal white boy reggae, they are reaching for a new place in time where dub reggae hooks up with the foundation of rock n roll and is baked at a Mile High. Their sound might take you back to the Omaha roots of 311, or the Long Beach sounds of Sublime, your grandma might even crack a 40 oz after just a few minutes. Known for their electric live performances, every show they play is an improvement and a bar for which they keep raising for themselves.
They recently played to a full house in Denver at the CD release party for their second album "Elevate". This album brings a lot more dynamic to the band with a unique blend of hard rock & reggae cuts, hip-hop and even R&B swing. In the last year Apex Vibe has shared the stage with such acts as UB40, Eek A Mouse, Ky-Mani Marley, Collie Buddz, and many more. They have headlined shows at the Gothic Theatre, Cervantes, Herman's Hideaway, and have played such notable venues as the Fox Theatre, Mishawaka Amphitheatre, the Belly-Up Aspen, and the Denver People's Fair. Look for Apex Vibe in a mountain town near you!
Filthy T is the combined work of rapper/producer Ben Hedman aka B.HEDED and songwriter/guitarist "Sloppy" Joe Barnholt. Together, they create a unique sound--almost genreless at times, but drawing heavily on Rock and Hip Hop influences from the Beatles to Dr Dre. The sound of the band is often compared to Gym Class Heroes, Atmosphere, and Denver's own Flobots. As a rap-rock duo, the two have been creating music together for four years.
We started Filthy T off in 2008 with a simple musical goal; combine meaningful hiphop lyrics with hard hitting rock music, without sacrificing the integrity of either genre. My mom says we succeeded.
Three years of Filthy T have now passed. We've rocked our hearts out at concerts, released two albums that we deeply love, and had more fun with our fans than you can ever know. Unless you were there :P
My mom says we're really popular. If I were to make a list of our accolades I'd say; we've been selected for 93.3 KTCL's Top 10 Hometown for the Holidays, Top 10 for Big Gig, we've played with the Flobots in front of a sold out crowd, headlined and sold out The Bluebird, we've been featured in Colorado Music Buzz, and... you know, we did good.
And we're out to do better. We organized a benefit concert for kids with cancer with our favorite local acts and packed the Walnut Room. We've also donated a good chunk of money to local charities. And, according to my mom, we're all-around-stand-up-guys.
So join us for a concert. Come say hi. Download some tracks. Print out our photos and put them all over your room. Get some Filthy T tattoos (first person to get a Filthy T tattoo... We will play a PRIVATE show for you, no joke).
All we ask is that you enjoy the tunes, support local music, and...
Day Above Ground
Day Above Ground, based in LA, is fairly new to the scene but have managed to release their first LP, “High View”, within the first year along with a very well received video for their song “Endless”. They offer a blend of Rock and Hip-Hop with a fresh perspective added to the mix. With a solid foundation based on traditional roots of the past paired with the relevance of now and a clear vision for the future this is only the beginning of their already impressive journey. This August they embark on their first official tour beyond the local scene. It’s clear they are up for the challenge and eager to connect with their fan base on a broader scale. D.A.G. harbors a brew of influence unlike any other band today, too many idols to list and too little time to do so.. but here are a few: Deftones, A Perfect Circle, Soul Live, Pink Floyd, Eyedea, and Pearl Jam. “High View” is available on itunes worldwide.
