Silver String Theater
Guitar, Banjo, Violin, Bass, Piano, Drums, Three Vocalists. We are ready to play any Wednesday until June as long as we play after 9. In June we can go on before 9. The music is hard to describe: adventure folk is the best we could come up with. It’s kind of like quirky storytelling with very memorable tunes.
Band Bio: Silver String Theater was born in 2008 out of a love for music. Over the years unique assemblage of people has been drawn around this wholly indescribable sound and through various gains and losses has ended up in its current form. Silver String Theater is made up of people who have something important (alb
Midnight Vine has been a staple in the
Colorado music scene since 2007,
headlining dozens of venues and
festivals throughout the Denver metro
and mountain regions. The acoustic
rock band is perennially selected as one
of Denver’s favorites to see live,
notoriously known for their improvising
and highly energetic sets. They routinely
perform original material to ruckus
and enthusiastic audiences,
wowing them with both tremendous
musicality and technical expertise.
The acoustic guitar, bass, and
drums sound is augmented by a powerful electric guitar
to create a truly unique identity that was
featured on KBCO 97.3’s locals only and Root Sports TV.
Their blend of influences has led
them to larger shows, such as opening
for Gin Blossoms and playing
alongside the annual Breckenridge
Brewfest. In 2013 Midnight Vine was also selected
as a finalist in Westword’s “Best of the West”.
With their ever-growing fan
base and improving sound, Midnight
Vine is continually being given new
opportunities, proving that the future
is very bright for the band.
Thanks To Philo
Thanks to Philo is a Denver based, female fronted, blues-alternative folk rock band with dynamic harmonies and a strong backbeat that'll make you wanna shake what yo momma gave ya! Our wide range of influences include Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Blind Pilot, Black
Keys, Led Zeppelin, HoneyHoney, Band of Skulls, Mumford and Sons, First Aid Kit, and State Radio.
Cadillac Grip is a band that is funk proud and ready to rock. Started in a basement in Boulder Colorado six musicians with a love of New Orleans syle music got together and have been blending modern rock and funk beats with classic New Orleans flavor. Now Cadillac Grip is ready to hit the town of Denver and bring the party!
Sweet Ball Peen
Genghis: Greg ‘Genghis’ Young covers vocals, lead and rhythm guitars for SBP. His early playing days were influenced by the blues and quickly moved from there to hard rock. Moving forward from Clapton and Iron Maiden, and finding Megadeth and Al Dimeola the driving forces in his style were set. In the early 90s, Genghis was the singular guitarist for the SF Bay Area rock outfit, Pistol Apostle, with whom he enjoyed modest success, and recorded many well-received demos. The pinnacle moment of that chapter was perhaps opening for 24-7 Spyz on Halloween night in 1991 while Kirk Hammett of Metallica looked on and then offered his compliments after the show. Genghis joined SBP in 2003 and has been a part of that original line-up ever since.
Stetz: Keith ‘Stetz’ Stoetzer provides the ‘glue’ that holds the music together. Serving up the rhythm guitars for SBP, the occasional lead and some cameo lead vocals, Stetz grinds out the rocking from the get go and never lets up. Broken arms, legs, and bloodied hands are no match for this unstoppable force. Keith is the other seminal member in today’s line up, drawing his style from wide ranging influences…if you had to pick three, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Clutch, and The Grateful Dead would be safe bets. Keith knows no enemies for a reason; find him after the next show and strike up a conversation and you’ll see!
Zack: Zack's musical journey covers hip-hip, reggae, gospel, and funk, blues, rock, and metal; playing everywhere from coffee shops, parties, and dive bars, to ballrooms, the People’s Fair of Denver and the Emergenza Battle of the Bands Regional Finals. In 2007, Zack joined the powerhouse rockers of Denver’s own “Sweet Ball Peen,” with whom he recorded the studio album, “Cover Up.” Every night he is a lock to throw down epic, stage-rumbling performances you must not miss and will never forget!
Kevin: Kevin Jochem, the best not-rich-and-famous drummer in Denver, punished the kit for SBP from 2006 to 2010 and returned in 2013 to complete the triumphant comeback of SBP!!! His contribution to the 2009 CD, Cover Up, recorded by Jamie ‘Hell-yeah’ Hillyer at Module Overload Studios is a little of the abundant proof that, yes, that boy can play! Kevin's credits are too many to name in this space; he plays it all, and better than you! Lucky are the ones who have smelted his Jochemy!
