For the past three years, the Denver based quintet Whiskey Tango has been motivating Colorado crowds to move their feet with their high energy shows and high octane attitude. This Bluegrass band has grass roots, and they recently emerged from their basement studio with their debut album Groggy Mountain Mornings. Capturing the rawness of the band, as well as their tenacious tone and attitude, this album reeks of wild west whiskey fueled thoughts and has a cornucopia of sounds that may surprise you. This band isn't just Bluegrass, it’s “foot stomping slamgrass.”
Formed within Denver’s Jamband scene, Whiskey Tango embraces sounds from many genres and brings it all to a boil with mind blowing live improvisation. For 52 weeks straight, Whiskey Tango had a standing Tuesday night gig at Denver’s Jamband headquarters, Quixote's True Blue, and “Tango Tuesdays” became a fixture of the Denver scene. That year shaped Whiskey Tango into a band on a mission to get their music heard by a wider audience and eventually led the band to trim their line-up down to five core members.
While they are the first to admit there is no way a studio recording can capture the energy of their explosive live show, Groggy Mountain Mornings showcases the bands diversity. The album features elements of Bluegrass, Country, Rock, Funk, Reggae and Psychedelia-woven together into one seamless collection of songs. Unanimous love for The Grateful Dead just may well be the unifying thread that holds the Whiskey Tango tapestry together and their love of “Space” left no space unfilled.

The Quick & Easy Boys
The Quick & Easy Boys, a power-trio out of Portland, Oregon, create their own blend of rock and roll. Imagine the Minutemen, Band of Gypsies and the Police rolled into one.
Formed in 2005, The Quick & Easy Boys quickly made a name for themselves in Eugene, Oregon before heading north and building a Portland, OR fanbase. Their shows are an interactive party with electrifying stage antics and profound musical moments as the trio pours out every ounce of their energy, leaving nothing behind. The band has gained the reputation for moving a crowd all-night long whether it be a big festival or a tiny watering hole. The core members – - Jimmy Russell on guitar, Sean Badders on bass, and Michael Goetz on drums – - have continued to evolve musically…and audiences continue their enthusiastic calling of “Yeah Bud!” at every show.
In 2008, they released Bad Decisions With Good People which left people raving about their unique and vibrant sound, and in September of 2009, they sojourned out on their first United States tour. Three more national tours followed the release of their 2nd album Red Light Rabbit in 2010, and the band is gearing up to release and tour behind their upcoming album, Make It Easy in 2013. They’ve opened both locally and nationally for Deer Tick, The Meat Puppets, Blitzen Trapper, The Thermals, J. Roddy Walston and the Buisness, Wooden Birds, Orgone, The Pimps of Joytime, Juno What?!, Southern Culture on the Skids, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, The Bridge, Iglu & Hartly, Bob Wayne & the Outlaw Carnies, Vince Herman, and more.
Trout Steak Revival
Ever since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, Trout Steak Revival has quickly become a quintessential Colorado band. The band won an Emmy Award for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS. They’ve collaborated with school children in mentoring programs in Denver and Steamboat Springs. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Most recently, Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band, and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
Defined more by expressive songwriting and heartfelt harmonies rather than any one genre, Trout Steak Revival crosses over and blends the bounds of folk, indie, bluegrass, and roots evoking its own style of Americana. With five band members all contributing unique lyrics, lead vocals, acoustic instrumentation, and harmonies, Trout Steak Revival delivers memorable tunes to an energetic fanbase that grows hand-in-hand with the band.
Trout Steak Revival has shared the stage with The Wood Brothers, Yonder Mountain String Band, Steep Canyon Rangers, Infamous Stringdusters, Nicki Bluhm, Sara Watkins, Leftover Salmon, and many more...
