Dynamic. How better to describe Kinetix, a band whose most recent album Let Me In hit #47 on the iTunes Top 200 Rock Charts and yet just wrapped separate national tours with hip hop darlings Flobots and Australian roots-rock kings Beautiful Girls, not to mention performing late night sets at a slew of summer festivals? ‘Let Me In’ certainly plays like a byproduct of a unique career trajectory, managing to maintain a fresh approach while smoothly transitioning between energetic rock and carefully crafted pop. Hot on the heels of their new album, a free acoustic show release and a packed Fall tour, Kinetix looks to be even more potent in the coming months. Already renowned for their performances, it’s easy to call Kinetix in 2011 a “must-see” live act. Simply put, they’re the type of band that reminds you why it’s fun to let loose.
Kinetix’s rise from their humble Denver roots into a nationally touring band is the result of talent, enthusiasm and a lot of hard work. Formed at the Lamont School of Music at Denver University, Kinetix was originally meant as a vehicle to blow off steam and play music at weekend hangouts. However, their popularity during those early days became a campus phenomenon that quickly outgrew the limited confines of house parties and campus events. Within two years of forming, Kinetix was selling out local theatres and collecting invites to summer festivals nationwide. Encouraged by the warm response, the band set out to establish themselves nationally and have been building their fanbase ever since.
The eleven tracks of Let Me In were engineered and mixed by Jason Livermore at the reputably rock and roll Blasting Room Studios and mastered by Chris Gehringer of Sterling Sound. The new album builds upon the band’s reputation as a live tour de force, but now heralds the rock quintet as studio musicians capable of creating an album worthy of mainstream radio play.
Wake Up And Live
Denver guitarist and vocalist Dave Halchak decided to put together a group of musicians to celebrate the music of Bob Marley, and pay tribute to the songs by creating some exciting jams, and throwing one fine party. The result was a show in February of 2013 on Marley's Birthday. The chemistry of this newfound group in rehearsal plus the success of the show inspired this new concept for a tribute band: Wake Up & Live.
Wake Up & Live pushes the boundaries of your normal "tribute" band by taking the music of Bob Marley into uncharted improvisational moments. This and the stellar arrangements create a unique and powerful twist on the Marley catalog. After just a year, the Denver based band has already made their mark on the premier stages of Colorado.

Policulture is the six-piece Original Mountain Reggae band from Boulder, Colorado. Policulture emanates heavy drum and bass with roots rhythm, accompanied by a melodic horn section and conscious lyrics. Established in 2010 this group of musicians developed their foundation and continually evolves as a band. Policulture creates music to bridge the gap between generations and unite all under one sound.
In September of 2014 the band released their debut album “The Bridge” which depicts their journey as reggae musicians. Each song illustrates Policulture’s understanding that composition, improvisation, and simplicity must work in unison. Their message is created to enlighten, and their music made to move you.
