Moe's 5th Anniversary Revival w/ Mountain Jam- A Tribute to the Allman Brothers Band, Robby Peoples and The Bankwalkers, and VELCRO

Mountain Jam (Allman Bros. Tribute)

The Allman Brothers Band holds a special place in the hearts of Coloradans - their yearly shows at Red Rocks have become a staple of the local summer concert diet. But once a year just ain't enough, and so a bunch of us decided to get together and pay tribute to the boys. Formed in February of 2007 (as "One Way Out,") Mountain Jam is committed to putting its own spin on the infectious, southern jam-rock that has been thrilling audiences for decades.

Robby Peoples and The Bankwalkers

Robby Peoples may not have a degree in music, but he is certainly a scholar of Rhythm and Blues. Having grown up in Mississippi, Peoples learned to play harmonica and guitar in the traditions of Hill Country Blues and Rock and Roll music on the porches of Oxford. Originally From Jackson, his music career began with a guest appearance with the band Shady Deal, where he joined them on a west coast tour that ended with him playing the High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, California.

From there, he started his own collaboration with friend Chris Wheeler, Cool Papa Bell. The band enjoyed success at a 2006 battle of the bands winning them a fully sponsored album. The resulting LP, The Good Word, released later that year, can still be found on iTunes.

Since leaving Cool Papa Bell he has relocated to Colorado where he's found an unfilled niche as a "down South" harmonica/guitar player. Since then he has guested with and joined The Congress on tours on both the East and West coasts.

In Denver he is fortunate to have played with many heavy hitters in the rock and roll and blues genres; including Sam Holt, Polytoxic, and guesting in a Thanksgiving Day performance of The Last Waltz.

While Robby's back up band The Bank Walkers' lineup continuously evolves his live performance is rock solid. Compared to the likes of Tom Waits and with the energy and showmanship of Joe Cocker his performances are rare for this day and age. "Fighting the good fight" to keep southern roots rock and roll alive his energetic, lyrical, aggressively edgy, kick-ya-in-the-balls performances are what make this showman a not-to-miss on the rise artist.

Denver-based VELCRO plays funk and rock ‘n roll that will make you and your mama dance: original music interspersed with imaginative arrangements of classic tunes. Formed in early 2013, this four-piece group of multi-instrumentalists is all about the pocket. Always energetic, VELCRO produces a live sound that doesn’t need to beg you to boogie. Come on down to the get-down.
