James and the Devil

While merging acoustic rock, fiddle, modern pop, rap, and dance; J&theD has logged over 100,000 touring miles with a proclivity to consistently perform unforgettable genre-bending shows. Whether playing theaters or festivals, J&theD's high energy original music is poised to redefine Rock&Roll!

James and the Devil has been growing recognition and achieving success in the Colorado music scene since 2009. They recently released a recorded set at Red Rocks Amphitheater, and a live CD/EP titled "Sample This". In 2013 they we're named Best "Avante-Pop" Band by the Denver Westword, and also Herman's Hideaway's Best of the West IV contest winners. They have proven time and again to be the victors of the Road to Summer Camp and Wakarusa Winter Classic battles, earning them performance slots at Wakarusa in 2011 & 2014; and at Summer Camp in 2012 and 2013. J&theD also won the title of Best Band in Denver by the CO Music Buzz in 2011.

J&theD has released 3 studio albums, and are about finish their 4th; dropping in the Spring of 2014, tentatively titled, "Checking For Signs Of Life". They are already working on their next big project and intend to continue work on yet another record.

Formed in Denver, Colorado, James and The Devil perform their own brand of music, best described as rocky mountain fiddle rock. Rhythm guitarist & lyricist, Jim Campbell, brings a unique element, providing a clever assortment of song writing, rapidly delivering intense vocal performances. Leading the band on the violin, David Ross, takes a progressive approach to his fiddle-style, drawing from years of traditional experience, and sawing on the strings to whatever genre is thrown his way. J & the D, Bassist, Adam Carpenter, holds down the low-end, with an extensive background in music theory, punching in, and pushing out sound- A slapping, singing, and dancing, machine. J&theD, drummer, Matt Stoner, keeps the thunder thumping, metal crashing, and the people moving. A former producer, writer, and composer of the rock style. Lead Guitarist, Percussionist, and jack-of-all-instruments, Buz Crutchfield, bringing a multitude of live experience, joined J&theD in 2009 to complete the 5-piece! Their songs are for every demographic, old and young. Their fans are made up of dreamers, drinkers, thinkers, smokers, and rebel-rousers.

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.

Highline

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 six-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 six 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. The band released their debut album “Songs From The Biltmore” on July 6, 2013.
