Dirty River Ramblers
Formed on a shared passion for string music, the Dirty River Ramblers build on the traditions of old time music and bluegrass. Featuring a close blend of vocal harmonies, and off-the-hip instrumental improvisation, the Ramblers will get your toes tapping with their homespun originals and their upbeat approach to the traditionals. The Dirty River Ramblers hail from Omaha, NE, and are eager to entertain you.
Kick off your shoes and get Dirty!
Gipsy Moon is a four-piece group of wandering artists on an endless journey toward good times and raw expression. With music as their carriage, strings as their weapon and the horizon as their aim, this unconventional band is not one to be missed. Their sound, often referred to as Gipsygrass, is something like a backwoods hoedown meets the smoking basement of a New York jazz club. Their soothing harmonies, raging solos and dirt encrusted bass lines bring an old time style into an exciting new dimension; one that hippies and poets, lovers and dancers, freaks and families alike can all come together and move in ways that their bodies have never known.
The members, made up of Silas Herman (guitar/mandolin), David Matters (banjo/vocals/guitar) Mackenzie Page (guitar/vocals/tenor guitar/washboard) and Collin Huff (bass/vocals/guitar) all take rest in the windy mountains of Nederland, Colorado. When they are not on the move you can find them here, forming cantos high up in the Rockies, making herbal concoctions out of the local flora or sharing a glistening jug of homebrew around a blazing campfire. This is but a small glimpse into the source of their musical inspiration. The content of most of their lyrics is a tasteful blend of nature based love songs, anti-establishment sing-alongs and down home simplicity with a gentle kiss of civil disobedience. They create music that is meant to plant inspiration in the soul and start a fire in the heart. They perform with the intention to build community and to invoke love in its wildest manifestation. They travel in order to experience life to its fullest and to build bridges that connect the frayed ends of the crumbling establishment to a new and beautiful way of existence. If one should ever come upon an opportunity to see Gipsy Moon, whether on the stage, in the woods or even sleeping in your back yard, they should be pleased at prospect of kicking off their shoes, smiling to the heavens and getting down and dirty to some rowdy ass picking.
Chain Station is a 4-piece, high-energy, get ‘em out on the dance floor stringband from Denver. Originally from the Midwest, they’ve quickly amassed a rabid fan-base in the Colorado Mountains and Front Range, hungry for the catchy and lyrically-poignant original material pouring forth from this prolific group of capable musicians.
Their live shows have become that of legend, with energy and stage antics that guarantee one hell of a night out. Equally comfortable rocking a packed club, playing backyard BBQ’s, or providing tasteful mountain music for your wedding, this band does it all…with style.
