Ten Years Gone - A Led Zeppelin Tribute
Ten Years Gone is Colorado's premier live Led Zeppelin tribute act. Providing an authentic visual and sonic experience, their mission is to perform a captivating representation of Led Zeppelin's live concerts. On stage, Ten Years Gone brings to life a combination of Zeppelin's mighty studio catalogue as well as their legendary live recordings.
The Strange Parade
The Strange Parade is the Doors concert experience, live and revived. Not a single song is a copy of an album recording; everything the band does is inspired by the live direction of the original group. Four members, improvisation, theatrics, and the unknown -- these are the elements of The Strange Parade:
Matthew Barham, the singer and frontman, leads the group delivering the energy and voice of Jim Morrison no holds barred. The homework has been done, and this means unexpected ramblings and performances that dig deep into not only the Doors music and Morrison's poetry, but into the scattered history of rock and roll music itself, and the obscure.
The guitar is handled by Neville Harson, a vinyl collecting fiend, who knows how to turn off the rigid mind and sink into the onslaught of music without form. Taking the Doors music and inserting his own psychedelic-punk spirit, Neville expands the palette of the band and allows for the odd left turns it takes through improvisation and spoken-word expressionism.
An award winning composer, arranger, and you-name-it-he's-probably-done-it of twenty-five years in the music industry, David Wohl is the the musical glue of The Strange Parade. Cascading keyboard runs, soaring jazz solos, and a solid left hand taking on the bass at the same time -- David takes Manzarek's legacy and runs with it. Anywhere the music goes, expected or improvised, David is there with it, giving it a channel to follow.
Like the lightning before the thunder, Tober Schorr sends the energy the band thrives on through his drums and into the bones of each member, striking with a ferocious crack that keeps the groove propelled and tight. Studious of the original material he takes what came and pushes it forward into what can be; nothing is beyond his reach, and when the others spiral outwards into the music they can look to the heartbeat he provides and find a way back to the ground.
The Substitutes - Music of The Who - One of the few, if not the only, all WHO covers band in the Western and Central United States.
