The Magic Beans
Since the creation of the band just three years ago, The Magic Beans have established themselves as a prominent and original act in the perpetually flooded Colorado music scene and nationally. The group made a name for themselves with a deep cannon of original songs, virtuosic playing, and fusing genres; while connecting with their fan base in a way that is not typical with other bands.
Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Beans style can be described as natural and all encompassing; encapsulating the diverse interests of each musician and today’s music lovers into one package. The band is known to play funk, bluegrass, rock, and electronica; sometimes in a single composition. Improvisation, crowd participation, and original set lists each night make for high energy live shows said to move the mind and booty, simultaneously.
The Magic Beans use no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music; original songwriting, diverse instrumentation, and continually pushing the musical envelope are what set the group apart. Seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and electric dance music, the Magic Beans are unique as their place of origin, the Colorado Rockies.
Na'an Stop is one of the biggest up and coming reggae bands in Colorado whose fusion of roots, rock, reggae and ska will surely get you moving. Formed back in 2010 by 5 students from around the country who met at the University of Colorado, Na'an Stop has quickly developed a unique sound that is hard to resist. The vibrant horn section, 3 piece harmonies, and alternating bass and guitar players are just some of the traits making this band one of a kind. With original music composed by three different lead singers, this bands seductive style is no imitation. From house parties to the big stage, these kids know how to put on a show.
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!!
