Juno What?! is a shameless dance party... Formed in 2008, the band has quickly become the leading practitioner of high-energy disco booty jams, and live electro-funk. .. Juno What?! is bringing their illuminated madness to stages across the country. Catalyzing dance floors into sonic landscapes, the band has ignited a devoted following of fans by providing raw, electrifying shows which are devoid of the aimless wanderings of the lesser jam community. Their sound is ahead of its time yet still rooted in the foundation of early-80's dance grooves with a devout appreciation for sternum-bumping progressive themes. .. This is a force to be reckoned with. .. The band consists of Joey Porter (keyboards, talk box) and Dave Watts (drums, samples) from the Motet, and Steve Watkins (keyboards, talk box, bass). This core group is often augmented by special guests taken from the best of the gigging groups on the scene (including founding member Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic). These musicians have gathered their collective talents to focus on this mission of making the world a better place.......to dance!
Fronted by Portland native, Sarah Clarke, who’s powerful vocals and engaging stage presence immediately command attention, the rest of the band is comprised of six exceptional musicians, Evan “Evvnflo” Simko (Guitar + MC), Terry Drysdale (Drums), Jon Shaw (Bass), Ben Turner (Keys), Chris Hardin (Tenor Sax), Thomas Barber (Trumpet). Many of them friends since high school, each player is as good as the next and all of them exceptional in their own way, Dirty Revival functions like a well oiled machine with every part doing exactly what it’s supposed to.
Dirty Revival’s democratic approach to music shows in their songwriting, their original music effortlessly incorporating several different genres of music. At times showcasing their unique take on the soul and funk sounds of the 60’s and 70’s, then, straddling the line between rock band and pop band. The care the group takes in the arrangement of their original music is reflected in their cover choices, known for their dynamic recreations of classic songs by artists ranging from NIN to Black Sabbath and Rage Against the machine, illustrates why it is difficult to put the Dirty Revival in any one genre of music.
The Jive Tribe
Boulder's premier Funk, Soul, Rock N' Roll band, The Jive Tribe is a band that embodies the spirit, vibe, and attitude of Colorado's colorful culture. The band has shared the stage with critically acclaimed artists such as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Kung Fu, Orgone, Tauk, Cycles and more. By taking inspiration from a wide variety of different artists and genres, The Jive Tribe has managed to craft a sound and style that is entirely their own. Different musical backgrounds, training and performance styles have given the band a unique musical diversity and the ability to combine genres such as Funk, Psychedelic Rock, Soul, and Blues. While the musical diversity is remarkable and exciting, the most important and fundamental part of The Jive Tribe is that we hope to create a place where all different kinds of people can come together and forget about the stressful world around us and enjoy a common love for music and dancing together.
