Denver based dream rock trio Evanoff is no doubt a force to be reckoned with in the Colorado music scene. The group has pioneered a unique, electrifying blend of analog and digital sounds they call â€śDream Rock.â€ť Dancey break beats, symphonic guitar riffs, powerful builds, and face melting jams define the increasingly popular genre.
Containing both heavy rock and soft melodic styles, the groups most stand out feature is their ability to capture the crowdâ€™s attention, creating heartfelt tension accompanied by groovy dance beats that release unimaginable amounts of energy. There is an energetic joy and purification that comes from seeing an Evanoff show, and we are here bringing a newly diversified sound.
Evanoff consists of its three core members: JJ Evanoff (Guitar), Jake Hall (Drums) and Brennan Forrester (Keys). In just under two years the band has performed at an array of major national festivals including Electric Forest, Euphoria and Gem & Jam, Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road, Vertex, Sonic Bloom, and Arise. The trio has been hitting the road hard over the past two years creating major markets in the southwest, midwest and northeastern US.
Cycles epitomize the power-trio format with ripping guitar, fat bass grooves played out through furious slapping, and dynamic drum beats flowing over intricate tempo changes. Each member wields a unique take on their instrument that when played together, forms a truly fresh and cohesive sound. Patrick Harvey commands the guitar with speed and precision reminiscent of Jimmy Herring while using his loop pedal virtually as its own instrument, a skill unique only to him. Michael Wood has subtly forged a drum style that showcases his rare ability to mashup funky hip-hop beats with frenzied rock riffs and only displays flashy technique when necessary while implementing the creative use of various sound-modulating drum triggers. At the heart of the band lies Tucker McClungâ€™s dominant slap-bass chops that captivates audiences and pumps the musical blood through the band.
The current incarnation of the ever-developing sound of Cycles reveals itself today as a staggering display of seemingly innocuous lyrics over purposeful compositions that only begin to mean more with time. Screaming peaks and balanced grooves find their way out of the chaos of a jam while samples ripped from anything between Prince, Missy Elliott, Chris Farley and Mortal Kombat movie quotes (and much more) ring out in the mix adding to the multicolored blend of sound filling a room and often standing out as comedic elements of the show. Drawing influence from artists such as Rage Against the Machine, J. Dilla, Primus, Weather Report, and many more, Cycles fuse an eclectic blend of genres to produce an original sound that has become harder and harder to find. Although only a few years old, Cycles have over 250 shows under their belt with tours extending across the entire U.S.
Dog City Disco
Karate Funk or Bust!
All aboard the psychedelic train to funk-town! This Dog City Disco locomotive is conducted by six lifelong friends hailing from the mountains of Summit County, CO. Although Dog City Disco, aka DCD, started their musical career as a college party band, they have greased their wheels and have created a mature groove machine that will barrel down the tracks right into your auditory canal.
Aside from the train whistle and a roaring crowd, expect to hear raging guitar solo's fused with smooth fingers flowing on the keys, bass dumps by Brad, an occasional sax blast, vocals that inflate from the ground to the moon and drums that don't miss a beat. Hop on the DCD train - they don't stop until the coal runs out...or until Tesla creates an electric train.
