While Eminence Ensemble’s musicianship impresses most, it’s their ability to cross and bend genres so fluidly, meticulously and with purpose that sends fans on a unique journey. The 6-piece band takes you down the rabbit hole with soulful vocals and playful lyrics to reach new levels of transcendence. EE waits for no one and their tenacity is real.
Despite attempts at categorizing Eminence Ensemble, the band has interest and heart for every genre and has devoted its craft to making you feel as if you too are a part of the journey. When
you attend an Eminence show, you’ll hear influences from 80s hard rock, 70s soul and funk and 00s R&B. Their live shows are hard to pinpoint, as seamless as they are bizarre, playful as they are razor sharp, but never dull or easily replicated. The Denver-based sextet has performed at Electric Forest, Euphoria Music Festival, The Werk Out, Friendly Gathering and more. Eminence Ensemble is more than just a rock band, they’re a rock band who jams with heart and soul. Fans can expect their new, highly-anticipated sophomore album fall 2017.
Evanoff is the musical experience created by Brennan Forrester, Jake Hall, and JJ Evanoff from Boulder, Colorado. The high-energy trio blends together a tasteful mix of classic rock and contemporary dance music, to create a genre they call “Dream Rock”. Evanoff has been fine tuning their distinct rock influenced sound and soulfully incorporating it within the ever-growing EDM scene, in the hope to bring rock music back into the spotlight, as it should be…
Whilst the act originally started as JJ Evanoff’s solo project, it didn’t take long before it blossomed into a live ensemble incorporating Oberholzer on Bass, and Hall on drums, both of which JJ met in school at the University of Colorado Denver.
JJ’s guitar melodies act as the vocalist for the group, and guide the listener on an emotional and spiritual journey, while Hall’s groovy rhythms and Oberholzer’s face melting slap bass skills keep the crowd moving, all night long.
In a musical world scene saturated by EDM and Jam-bands, Evanoff will give you a fresh perspective on what the musical world might be like if the greats such as Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix were still around.
Kessel Run creates music for the body & the mind. The band was formed in Boulder, Colorado in 2016. In their first year, their playing has gained them some furious momentum, allowing them to play in venues such as the Fox Theatre in Boulder and the Bluebird Theater in Denver. With a heavy utilization of improvisation, Kessel Run combines Funk, Rock, and Dance Music. Jazz tones and intricacies meet the pulse-pounding grooves and energy of Rock & Roll. Join them as they travel to the forefront of the Colorado jam scene in less than 12 Parsecs.
