Dyrty Byrds

Since forming in 2009 Dyrty Byrds have been giving steady doses of southern influenced rock & roll to the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The band was born out of the desire to bring this sound to the mountains and over the past few years have been playing shows all over Colorado, the South East, and points in between. With Eric Martinez (Bloodkin) and Tori Pater (Polytoxic), both sharing in the songwriting duties the Dyrty Byrds hit on a wide range of musical styles ranging from smokey blues numbers and pop rockers, to large scale orchestrations.

In their short life the Dyrty Byrds have been proud and honored to have shared the stage with some great musicians and influences such as:

Daniel Hutchens (Bloodkin, Romper Stompers) 

Eric Carter (Bloodkin)
Todd Nance (Widespread Panic, Barbara Cue, Romper Stompers) 

John “Jojo” Herman (Widespread Panic, Jojo’s Mardi Gras Band)
William Tonks (Bloodkin, Barbara Cue, Romper Stompers)
Cecil “P-Nut” Daniels
Wally Ingram (Stockholm Syndrome, Sheryl Crow) 

Jerry Joseph (Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons, Stockholm Syndrome)
Taylor Hicks (American Idol) 

In an age of synthetic instruments and pitch bent vocals the Dyrty Byrds have stayed true to the classic rock, guitar drivin style of rock & roll while giving it their own Rocky Mountain twist.

Dyrty Byrds features:
Tori Pater (Polytoxic)- Guitar, Vocals
Eric Martinez (Bloodkin)- Guitar, Vocals
Andy Clapp - Drums
Spanky McClure - Bass

George Porter Jr.

George Porter, Jr. is best known as the bassist of The Meters, along with Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste. The group was formed in the mid 60's and came to be recognized as one of the progenitors of funk then called R&B. The Meters disbanded in 1977, but reformed in 1989. Today the original group still plays the occasional reunions but the Funky Meters, of which Porter and Neville are still members, most prominently keeps the spirit alive.

Few bass players in the history of modern New Orleans music are as storied as George Porter Jr. During the course of a career spanning more then four decades, Porter has not only made a deep impression with his work in the Meters, but he’s notched session work with artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, David Byrne, Patti LaBelle, Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, Taj Mahal, Ryan Montbleau and live performances with Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Steve Kimock, Eric Krasno (and including recent studio releases with Warren Haynes and Bill Kreutzmann) just to name a few. Early in his career, Porter worked with seminal New Orleans artists like Allen Toussaint, Earl King, Lee Dorsey, and Johnny Adams, Irma Thomas, The Lastie Brothers again to only name a few.

Porter is also the band leader of his own unique long term project the Runnin’ Pardners, well respected not only as a quintessential New Orleans band, the touring band continues to receive accolades on the jam band and festival scene. He has assembled some seasoned and talented musicians to join him on this project. Familiar Pardners - Brint Anderson (guitar) and, Michael Lemmler (keyboards) and rising stars on the New Orleans music scene Khris Royal (saxophone) and Terrence Houston (drums). George Porter Jr. plans to keep a smile on his face. “I feel like I am working towards something that will be remembered.”

Porter has proven to be capable of the ultimate fusion of rock, funk and R&B, and has gained recognition as one of the industry’s elite bass players. He continues to be not only an in demand performing artist but an accomplished studio musician and producer.

"The theorem of turntablist as musician has been long proven in the capable hands of DJ LOGIC, whom with jazz as his foundation has become a wax innovator by crossing genres and sprinkling his sound across the map. As one of the world's most accomplished turntablist's, DJ LOGIC is widely credited for introducing jazz into the hip - hop realms and is considered by most as a highly respected session musician and an innovative bandleader.

Since his emergence in the early nineties amidst the Bronx hip-hop scene, the New York City based deejay has been amassing a veritable mountain of collaborations ranging from the likes of: MEDESKI MARTIN AND WOOD, CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE, VERNON REID, CHARLIE HUNTER, JACK DeJOHNETTE, JOHN MAYER, BEN HARPER, MOS DEF and THE ROOTS, to name but a few.

These days, DJ LOGIC is focusing on studio endeavors, producing notable projects such as: Re-imagination with jazz piano phenomenon ELDAR ; collaborating with VERNON REID on a project he co-founded called the Yohimbe Brothers ; touring with CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE in support of Live at Tonic ; participating in a side project called SOLESIDE (featuring KYLE HOLLINGSWORTH from STRING CHEESE INCIDENT and SPEECH from ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) and co-anchoring a rock band with JOHN POPPER (The John Popper Project featuring DJ Logic) . LOGIC'S body of work also includes three highly accomplished solo albums (Zen of Logic; The Anomaly; Presents Project Logic), all released on Ropeadope Records.

DJ LOGIC and his role as an electronic-music ambassador keeps him at the top of his game. Whether the scratch artist instructs tablas to flirt with drum 'n' bass (such as on his NINA SIMONE and BILLY HOLIDAY remixes found on Sony Legacy's Remixed and Reimagined volumes) , or while meshing free styling MC's with Afro-Cuban rhythms (such as on 'Share Worldwide Funk' - a remix produced for JACK DeJOHNETTE and Golden Beams Collected, Volume 1 ) , LOGIC can always be found paying homage to his predecessors while contributing his vision to the deejay genre. While the context of his work may vary, DJ LOGIC'S spinning skills are definitely beyond reproach. He works with a phenomenal roster of invited guests, and he knows how to pick his collaborators as well as his samples. With a growing catalogue of recordings under his belt, DJ LOGIC'S supreme musicianship and catholic tastes will allow him to journey wherever an infectious groove may take him.

A Psychedelic Blues Rock Power Trio, their Marshall-stacked experience is JD Simo on guitar & vocals, Frank Swart on bass and Adam Abrashoff on drums.

"We dig him even more in his power trio, called SIMO, where he summons the spirits of Hendrix, The Who and vintage Cream, wailing from his Marshall-style full stack like he's onstage at the Monterey Pop Festival." - (Jack Silverman, Nashville Scene)

"Simo's new self-titled full-length such a glorious piece of rocking blues in the tradition of Hendrix, Michael Bloomfield and other guitar-crazy heroes of the distant past." - (Edd Hurt, Nashville Scene)


Members of GLAIZE hearken from the crossroads town of Wapakoneta, Ohio. Smack dab in the heart of the Rust Belt and based in the middle of Auglaize County (hence the band’s name). Their unique style of music, most accurately called Americana, blends a mix of bluegrass, blues, rock 'n roll, country, and jazz.

GLAIZE is fronted by, Trent Atkins, who is currently from Missoula, Montana. The singer-songwriter, mandolin, guitar, and banjo player is a lead member of the regional band, The Workers. Danny Follin and Craig Walkup both of one of the most popular bands in Northwest Ohio, the staples, bring to the stage more than 20 years of experience. Follin, with solid roots in country and western swing, plays a nasty telecaster guitar. Walkup, with his eclectic style of drumming, nicely complements this roots arrangement.

All of the members of GLAIZE have significant experience playing with national acts in many venues across the country. They are sure to keep audiences enthused, engaged, and sometimes even making them laugh out loud.
