Tori Pater's Big Bad Band w/ West Water Outlaws and We's Us

Tori Pater's Big Bad Band

Tori Pater is Denver's favorite rock star.

West Water Outlaws

The Outlaws were formed in early 2010 when singer Blake Rooker accidentally walked into the wrong statistics class, hazily. He ran into a friend from freshman year at CU, Will S. Buck Esq. who had interest in forming a band. After fifteen minutes of what felt like brothers meeting for the first time, Rooker and Buck discovered each others love for down home blues and dirty rock and roll, and a band practice was scheduled for later that evening. After a few practices and some spirited writing sessions the band started playing parties in the basement of Rooker's house. Interestingly enough during the mass explosion of dj software and macbook pros, not many parties in Boulder featured live Rock & Roll bands at this point in time. The rock parties were a hit and the band began playing out at bars and local clubs for a small fee of beer and food. After adding Andrew "Monkey" Oakley on drums and Vincent "Funky" Ellwood on bass, The West Water Outlaws have managed to win the 2010 CU battle of the bands, and share the stage with national acts such as Rose Hill Drive, Dirty Sweet, The Swayback and Rival Sons. Using recording time won in the battle of the bands the Outlaws released their first official EP entitled "Crooked Angel", recorded, mixed and mastered at Coupe Studios.

In June of 2011 The Outlaws booked their first regional tour ever and piled into a black F250, later known as "Black Sabbath," and headed south with only four total shows confirmed. West Water was an instant hit on their first stop in Memphis, Tennessee and was immediately offered another show the following night. By the end of the month, the band had played over twelve shows in four cities, and grown their fan base by 25%. There's no telling what The Outlaws are cooking up next but it's a guarantee that their shows will be high energy and rowdy both on and off the stage. This will be a band to watch as they strive to be the next big thing out of Boulder.

We's Us

We’s Us was born on Colfax Avenue in Denver, Colorado amongst the hippies, punks, hipsters, and techno freaks in 2012. We’s Us has risen to Colorado power through making use of what they know and what they like and finding a way to make the two work together. Michael, Chris, Blake, and Charlie all come from different musical backgrounds and tastes, merging them all into a rock n roll cornucopia. We’s Us is a mélange of jam, funk, rock, punk and any other genre they could kind find to give We’s Us a very unique sound. We’s Us has pounded the streets of Colorado, building their fan base one show at a time by following in the footsteps of those great live bands that came before them, never playing the same show twice. We’s Us is loud, raw, happy, full of improv and even a little rude, doing what they do best, playing rock n roll. Currently the Denver quartet is awaiting the release of their first album produced by Dave Aron (Sublime, Snoop Dogg, Prince, Dumpstaphunk). We’s Us is also in the midst of planning a large tour across the Midwest and southeast. Having made it to the Colorado radio stations in such a short time since the bands inception, it will only be a matter of time before We’s Us will be a household name.
