Out To Lunch
Pushing the depths of the underground jazz scene, cutting edge New York City-based Out to Lunch will be releasing its third album, No One Left Behind, on one of the finest indie record labels, Mesa Recordings. Tracks such as “In Da House” and “It’s a Jungle Out There” move effortlessly from the world of funk to breakbeat, from dub to house, creating a sound that hits both the mind and feet. Out to Lunch has not only established itself as a mainstay on the New York scene, but has toured extensively through North America and Europe. Billboard magazine has called Out to Lunch, “a distinctive brand of funk…expanding the range of the listener’s experience,” while the Village Voice has hailed Out to Lunch as an, “ambitious and funky groove-prov octet.”

Whodunnit (WDI) – We are a local act that plays a mix of psychadelic jam rock infused with funk, and alternative accents. We have been playing together as Whodunnit for close to a year, but we have all jammed together for 2 or 3 years. Our sound is dynamic, tight, and will keep you guessing at whats coming next.
We's Us may be know to "pack the most possible over-the-top guitars solos ever into a single set." The band's heavy-alternative-rock sound is never lacking energy or content. It is heavy without dwelling on cliche'd power chords, but melodic without being too "jazzy". We's Us reserves the right to delve into musical explorations at any point in any of their songs. If they do that, they promise to rock.
We's Us was formed from the melting pot that is the Denver music scene. Started by Michael "Weeze" Dawald, the members of We's Us have played together under many different names and decided to create something new. All of the members come from wide-ranging musical backgrounds and geographic regions.
Michael "Weeze" Dawald - Guitar/Vox
Blake Manion - Drums
Chris Crantz - Bass
All members of We's Us enjoy long walks on the beach.
Sir DJ de Horn & The Chosen Few
T-Bone Music Productions proudly presents Independent Recording Artist Trumpeter Doug Jackson
Jackson’s archives include his first CD First Breath which consists of original smooth jazz compositions and memorable cover tunes. Jackson’s second CD titled Stowaway (on the Mothership) consists of funky original compositions. First Breath and Stowaway have both had airplay on KZKO's “A Funk Above The Rest” hosted by The Funktologist Skip Reeves and "The flavor of Jazz Cuisine" hosted by Charles Dottson. Jackson also has a tune of inspiration out called “Peace and Love”. Also Jackson’s CDs can be purchased at Twist and Shout Record store,Denver CO.
Doug Jackson has been performing, learning, and honing his skills for as long as he’s been alive; a luxury afforded to those fortunate enough to come from musical families. Growing up in Colorado, his stand-out, visionary talents became apparent early in his life. He won the Denver East High School Outstanding Music Award in 1973. After High School, Jackson went on to perform and record professionally with such legendary musicians as, the late Soloman Burke (Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Grammy Award recipient), Joe Bonner (who played with such stand-outs as Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard and Max Roach).
Jackson enrolled at Knoxville College in 91 and studied full-time through 92 (Music Performance). Jackson went on to win acceptance into the prestigious Berklee College of Music (Boston) in 92 where he attended through 94. Berklee being the alma mater to such famous alumni as Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock (to name a few), Jackson learned with, played with, and further grew with the best, brightest and most talented musicians in the world.
In 94 Jackson toured the Middle East where he performed for the troops for the USO / Department of Defense. Upon returning to the states, Jackson put together a 5-piece jazz show band called The Untouched, which he fronted and gigged with for two years.
In 96, Jackson moved to Detroit where he performed with (among others) renowned sax player the late James Payton as a guest artist of James Payton and Impact 7. The band performed to big crowds at popular events, such as the Coachmans Blues Festival and the Deli in the Alley, hosted by Wayne State University. Poet, Wardel Montgomery Jr., from Detroit used Jackson’s recordings as the sound track for his poetry video. As always, Jackson continued to passionately write, polish and perform his own material.
Jackson moved to the Southern Tier of New York in 98 where he continued to work on honing his craft and offer private instruction. In 99, Jackson recorded First Breath: his first independent full-length album. The work was arranged by jazz all-star and long-time friend Joe Bonner, who also played piano on the recordings. The album was a triumphant success and a living testament to the diverse talents, genres, moods and styling’s in Jackson’s arsenal.
Jackson vacationed in Denver later that year. However, when the regional media learned of the Colorado natives return to the area, he was promptly pursued and interviewed by The Denver Weekly News (and featured on the publications cover) and by radio celebrity Rodney Franks on KUVO. Shortly thereafter Jackson was asked by CAM Productions in Denver to perform: that show was another triumphant success.
In 2010 Jackson started recording his second CD titled Stowaway (on the Mothership). This CD is all of Jackson’s original compositions. This CD introduces FUAZZ; where the Funk meets the jAZZ. Stowaway was reviewed by Howard Dukes of the world wide music publications SoulTracks (www.soultracks.com/Doug-Jackson-stowaway-review). Dukes gave Stowaway a “highly recommended” review.
Jackson has made leaps and bounds since returning to Denver. Jackson’s Stowaway CD release party was held at the renound nightclub Jazz@Jack's.
