The Other Black
The Other Black, featuring Cosmic Slim (formerly of Air Dubai and Petals of Spain) is an experience unlike anything you have yet to observe in the Denver music market. Newly formed in the late Fall of 2012, this dynamic group started with a mere 9 members and has launched to upwards of 24. That's right, just about 30 musicians collaborating to bring you a unique sound and leave you with a smile in your soul. These are musicians that have already contributed successfully to the scene; from Birds Of A Feather, Bonnie & The Beard, Petals of Spain, The People's Abstract and more.
Needless to say, upon taking stage - this assortment of artistry commands it's presence. Their act has been compared to reading an old school Parliament comic book. In a nutshell, this crowd's get-up is wild, garish, & funky with fresh attire that makes you believe they MUST have a costume designer amongst them somewhere. In short, they are like watching a cartoon come to life.
The Other Black clearly simply loves what they do. Their soul-funk- do-wop mix with a modern squeeze endears them. People are on their feet when The Other Black hits the stage. If you haven't seen them yet, you will.
All songs are written and arranged by Cosmic Slim, with the exception of the few covers they perform honoring soul legends Sly & The Family Stone and Ray Charles.
Soul Explosion is a five-piece instrumental jazz/funk/soul band from Denver, CO. With influences spanning the funky, danceable sounds of Soulive and to the more modern, sophisticated jazz styles of Joshua Redman and Snarky Puppy, Soul Explosion brings something to the table for every lover of music. Soul Explosion is currently the Thursday night house band at Denver's legendary Quixote's music club, and plays frequently at Denver's most popular venues, including Dazzle, El Chapultepec and Herbs. They have just released their first self-titled EP, and are currently in the studio recorded their first full length album, set for release in Winter 2013. Fans say that Soul Explosion's live shows are "energetic, engaging, and amazing to behold".

I live in Denver and I really love to make music and It mostly takes the form of electronic music I guess.
