This event is all ages
"…this is an extraordinary debut album that's going to have a hard time staying regional."
"The Jekylls reach back to an era of 60s pop that is undeniably made for long drives with the top down."
-Chris K., Colorado Sound
"All surfy guitars and sassy harmonies, the band rocks through the record's 10 tunes with the carefree swagger of musicians who have nothing to prove and who are pursuing this particular lark for the fun and love of it."
-Eryc Eyl, Denver Post
"… we'll do our best to refrain from referring to [ The Jekylls] as a 'supergroup' (aw, crap -- we just did!). Judging from the lineup …
there's about zero chance we'll be disappointed."
-Dave Herrera, Westword
What happens if you mix two Hollyfelds, two Railbenders and a Sunday Girl?
You get The Jekylls, a 60's style pop group from Denver.

New Ben Franklins
New Ben Franklins have always been about sonicness… if that’s a word, and I don’t think it is. Since the band’s formation in 1992 they have always been about making some noise. Starting out as a drum machine-driven 3 piece playing music like The Sisters wish they could (but not nearly as great as the Lorries), the band soon added a live drummer and were off.
During the mid 90s, the band released three albums and saw some modicum of success as a regional band, touring and garnering radio play in the Rocky Mountain region. From ’96 to 2008, the band has evolved – through a string of bass players and drummers – to its current incarnation – David DeVoe on vocals and guitar, Mark Kosta on drums, Graham Armer on guitar and vocals, Benjamin Williams on bass guitar, and the occasional wandering musician stopping in to play something else.
The band’s newer music has a touch of old country in it while maintaining its sonic (and loud) features. As DeVoe gets a bit older, his songs seem to float back to the music upon which he was weaned: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Marty Robbins, Glen Campbell, etc… and all those influences seem to be working their way into the music a bit more each day, building a solid country foundation into the noisy guitar-driven rock that the band has always played.
The band has recently released their new full length CD, titled [peter gabriel]. The album showcases the range of musical styles that the band incorporates, as well as the fury with which they play. The Franklins have always been well known for their live shows, and they continue to play regular shows in the region and make occasional short forays into other parts of the country to play festivals and make short tour runs.
Call it Americana. Call it noisy country. Call it alternative country… It doesn’t matter to the Franklins, as long as it’s a fair piece loud and a ton of fun.
