Jonathan Scales Fourchestra w/ Cold River City and Dorian Vibe

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra is an example of musical sincerity. Weaving together collective and individual influences without compromise, they are as much themselves as they are a unit—a crucial trait of landmark instrumental ensembles. Steel pannist and founder Jonathan Scales’ compositional skill mixes with tasteful, avant-garde improvisations to form a totally unique approach to an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical music. Driftwood Magazine says “Scales is to steel pans ….what Béla Fleck is to the banjo—an über innovator.”

Drummer and percussionist Phill Bronson drives the Fourchestra’s time-shifting, modern grooves with “graceful polyrhythmic chops” (Modern Drummer) and the listening ability of a true master. (He can also make a three-piece drum kit sound like a ten-piece.)
Cody Wright rounds out the ensemble with gut-wrenching grooves and blistering, soulful melodic lines. A true innovator on the electric bass, Wright’s mix of flash and feel adds a unique depth to the Fourchestra. Ropeadope Records called him “The most exciting bass player to be seen on the scene.”

The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra explodes onto stages with an indescribable sound that is as much felt as it is heard, and is said to have “a Thelonius Monk-like attitude with a Mozart creativity” (Pan on the Net)

2013’s self-titled collaborative album on Ropeadope Records features guest collaborators Victor Wooten and Howard Levy (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones) and is fully orchestrated with horns and strings.

In 2014, the Fourchestra will release “Mixtape Symphony,” a dense, half-hour long-form album inspired by and dedicated to Roy “Futureman” Wooten. The album features the core trio and is slated for release on Ropeadope in May. The band is touring stateside in support of the new release. Tour dates can be found at http://www.jonscales.com/tour

Cold River City

Playing high energy grooves that feed your funky soul, Cold River City is a six piece live band that has been turning heads and moving bodies everywhere they go. Their hard hitting live performance features seductive vocal harmonies, screaming slide guitar, and a tight rhythm section guaranteed to make you get down with your bad self. With an obvious passion for what they do, they have built a strong following both at home around Boulder, Colorado as well as on the road. Having produced two EP’s already, they are gearing up for the release of their first full length album entitled Let Me Shine in early 2014.

Dorian Vibe

Dorian Vibe is an intense groove machine. A trio who sounds bigger than the sum of their parts, original songwriting that is catchy and memorable, and the passion to keep people dancing all night long. With strong vocal harmonies, intense blistering guitar, assaulting jaw-dropping bass lines, and rhythmically rich and nuanced drumming, the level of musicianship is top-notch and demands attention. Dorian vibe is all about having fun while doing what they love… sharing their souls through music.
