James and the Devil
James & the Devil has an original style you just can't peg, they spin off Rock'n'Roll sounds with MountainGrass, funk, hip hop, and rhythmic dance chemistry that always gets the house movin! A sort of New Age broad spectrum Rock'n'Roll Review that can be summed up as Rocky Mountain RedNeck Gangsta Rock!!
After the first year of playing together James and The Devil developed a strong chemistry, realizing the root of their music was a common interest in rock music and performance. They also realized the importance of variety for expression and showmanship purposes.
The short story would be that James and The Devil tours the Rocky Mountains from north to south with a base in Denver. They play as much as they can, they get involved with the local scene, and actively promote with a good cause. James and The Devil plays for every demographic, old and young, and is made up of dreamers, beer drinkers, thinkers, and smokers, and is seen happiest playing music while uniting people.
J and The D is currently in the studio, working on their first full length album, that they hope to have completed in the fall of '09. During this time they will be continuously playing and touring, so come out and get down to some Rocky Mountain Rebel Rock and don't forget to bring an extra pair of socks!!

Desciples chemically engineered their sound to put your body in motion. There’s enough delay to swim in and the thick percussion section will keep your head just above water. The groove is heavy set, yet spacious, almost like basking in the sun on a private beach with your own personal bartender. Don’t be surprised when they bust into a rocking White Stripes or Depeche Mode cover. The band has taken the term “DreadRock” to new heights by blending such contrasting bands as Bob Marley and Peter Tosh with Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana.
In 2005 Stephen Hashbarger was 17 and had just begun his songwriting career. He went to an open mic night in Englewood, Colorado, where he met Chilli and began the musical project that would later become Desciples. Fast forward to 2007. In front of a sold out crowd at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood, Desciples won the Denver leg of a national battle of the bands competition and became 1 of 17 groups remaining. They then played a nationally televised performance at the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame.
In the Summer of 2009, Desciples recorded their debut studio album. On July 10th 2010 “Soul Searching & Couch Surfing” was released. The album presents a behind-the-scenes view of the success’ and failures of Stephen’s life that is skillfully told. From the trials of personal relationships and the angst of growing up to the struggles of the band and his home life to major events taking place around the world today, this album is a journey through the mind of a conflicted yet compassionate soul. Desciples’ love for life and humanity is brilliantly conveyed in this compilation of recorded songs and displayed first hand at their over the top high-energy live performances.
Bringing together the traditional sounds of roots reggae, dub and dancehall, HIGHLINE is an energetic band dedicated to creating a truly authentic reggae sound. The band members come from diverse musical backgrounds ranging from punk, hip-hop, rock and jazz, but have come together to make a brand of reggae music they can call their own. Thumping bass-lines, hard hitting drum beats and soaring vocal harmonies combined with the edgy, often politically charged rapid-fire vocals of Mr. Brown will surely get you off your feet and dancing.
The Robby Wicks Band
The Robby Wicks Band is a four-piece rock band based out of Denver, CO. The folk, soul-rock sound is created with tight percussion, intricate guitar work, melodic bass, and soulful lyrics and melody. Although still young, the four have been playing music together and separately in Colorado for over 10 years. The musical camaraderie shows with their ability to put soulful, original songs together with energy and precision.
