Split Lip Rayfield
From the blood-red heart of Kansas, it’s completely fair to call these guys legends. It’s been more than 20 years since Split Lip Rayfield first mashed up their aggressive stew of acoustic bluegrass instrumentation, tight country vocals, fierce metal shred, and in-your-face punk sensibilities.
So yeah, they virtually invented “thrashgrass”. But then they kept right on moving. Following the 2007 death of their beloved bandmate and founder Kirk Rundstrom, SLR reinvented itself by simply staying the course, continuing to play hundreds of shows to thousands of fans.
All the old-school invention and energy is intact, and they still stomp the living hell out of a stage. But their songs keep getting better and their sound is sneakier and smarter than ever.
Founded in upstate New York and currently located in the Front Range, Banshee Tree has quickly developed a reputation as one of Colorado’s most multifaceted young bands. Combining the sounds of acoustic instruments with a diverse blend of dance and improvisational styles from swing to funk to electronic, the band's songwritier Thomas LaFond's intrepid compositions as a platform for hot swing and deep grooves. Fans of Golgol Bordello, Caravan Palace, and Django Reinhardt will appreciate this driving, earthy acoustic dance music. There newest release, “In the Company of Crows”, is currently available through Bandcamp, Itunes, and Spotify.
House With A Yard
House With a Yard is an on-going musical project founded by singer/songwriter Davey Wallace. It has been brought together by the passion of the songs, the love of the music, and the drive to play them until you hear them. Upon planting the band in Northern Colorado, and collecting some of the areas finest and most diverse players possible, it took on a life of it’s own and won’t be slowing down any time soon. HWAY rolls down the track with driving train beats, a delicate yet forceful melody, and leads that will take you to the top of the mountain where they may release you.
