PAPAGOYA is a pure unadulterated booty rompin’ dance party. Hailing from Colorado, Brazil, and Sweden, these six men have mastered a craft they can truly pocket as their own. Their only problem? Limiting themselves to a “genre.” At any given show, PAPAGOYA can unleash a set that could make even the most seasoned of festival goers feel renewed. Ranging from Bossa Nova to roots blues, the ‘goya boys keep you on your toes, and your butts on the dance floor.
Revered for their live performances, PAPAGOYA consistently brings the goods. An eclectic sound that beckons comparisons from Santana’s Latin-groove to Umphrey’s Mcgee’s progressive-rock-fusion, PAPAGOYA is JUNGLE FUNK.
Wake Up And Live
Denver guitarist and vocalist Dave Halchak decided to put together a group of musicians to celebrate the music of Bob Marley, and pay tribute to the songs by creating some exciting jams, and throwing one fine party. The result was a show in February of 2013 on Marley's Birthday. The chemistry of this newfound group in rehearsal plus the success of the show inspired this new concept for a tribute band: Wake Up & Live.
Wake Up & Live pushes the boundaries of your normal "tribute" band by taking the music of Bob Marley into uncharted improvisational moments. This and the stellar arrangements create a unique and powerful twist on the Marley catalog. After just a year, the Denver based band has already made their mark on the premier stages of Colorado.

There are sometimes featured percussionists, horn players and additional sounds as well so be sure to check them out in your town soon!
