Wheelchair Sports Camp
Combining humor, playfulness, radical political perspectives, compassion and undeniable musical chops, Wheelchair Sports Camp is Denver's biggest smallest band.
Fronted by the wheelchair using, rapping/beat-making, activist/educator/shit-talker Kalyn, the band is a combination of live and electronic instruments with a more noisey, jazzy, experimental, combination to the traditional hip-hop group. The band has been featured on the cover of the Village Voice as well as in SPIN Magazine, Huffington Post, High Times Magazine and more. You can't really pin Kalyn's beats and collaborators to a specific era or subgenre of hip-hop, and she always switches up her configuration and presentation and methodology while making the music happen in consistently fascinating ways.
The band unknowingly started summer of 1997 when Kalyn moved back from California to her hometown and was invited to attend and corrupt the 14th annual week-long Colorado Jr. Wheelchair Sports Camp. The band tours the states and beyond from their home in Denver.

Bullhead*ded known as "The Most Notorious Group In The Underground" has been winning over hearts and heads for over a decade. Recognized as having one of the highest energy shows around. Their style, and experience is probably most relatable to The Beastie Boys. For several years Bullhead*ded has been carving their place into hip-hop history, and are now looking to cement their place as one of the greatest groups of all time. They have cut their teeth all across the U.S. sharing stages with such legends as Mos Def AKA Yasiin Bey, Public Enemy, KRS-One, Sage Francis, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony & Long Beach Dub All-Stars to name a few. Their story is one of Legend. A story of love. A story of lust. A story of failure, and triumph and more failure. This is a story of freedom, and the chains that bind. A story of who, but most importantly a story of why. This is a story of pain, and one of loss. But mostly, this is a story of LOVE.
Consisting of the mighty Che Bong, the masterful Nato Lucero and the brazen ZETfree. A bond of brotherhood has been forged between these three that has already endured the group far beyond the normal life span of a vast majority of hip-hop groups.
The main meaning behind the name is an indicator of their unwillingness to quit. Their drive to continue in their passion no matter what. They are too stubborn and bullheaded to ever stop their journey.
