The Magic Beans
The Magic Beans are a traveling band from Nederland, CO set out to bring their unique, genre-blending music to the masses and inspire a good time. Their diverse songs move your mind, while tight grooves move your booty when they come to town or through the speakers. Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Magic Beans leave nothing off the table as they combine americana, funk, rock, and electronica into a one sound and sometimes even one composition. Their sound has been described as space funk, ameritronica, and groove grass. The group uses no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music: original songwriting, diverse instrumentation, and continually pushing the envelope are what have set this group apart. Seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and electric dance music, The Magic Beans are as unique as their place of origin, the Colorado Rockies.
The Magic Beans have shared the stage with an eclectic group of musicians: ranging from members of String Cheese Incident, Lotus, Leftover Salmon, ALO, The Motet, to acts like Eliot Lipp, Railroad Earth, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Great American Taxi, Zac Deputy, Elephant Revival, Greensky Bluegrass, Split Lip Rayfield, Juno What, Papadosio, & The Werks just to name a few. They've performed over 200 shows as group across the nation in venues like; Ogden Theater, Boulder Theater, Mishawaka Amphitheater, Bluebird Theater, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Animas Theatre, Belly Up Aspen, the Cabooze, George's Majestic, Parish austin, The Grenada, Gothic Theater, Funky Biscuit, State Bridge Amphitheater, Fox Theater, City Hall, 320South, The Eldo CB, Ghost Ranch Saloon, and many more across the country. The group has a full studio album and live shows available for free to fans at themagicbeans.bandcamp.com and has also put on two of their own festivals and participated in countless charity and benefit events. Look for the groups second studio effort, a double album, to be released early next year.

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!!
