Being hailed as “Denver’s newest party band” is a hefty responsibility. Luckily, no task seems too great for Denver’s 11-piece afrobeat outfit, ATOMGA to take on.

Founded in 2011, ATOMGA is already a planet-sized force taking the scene by storm. Using afrobeat as its foundation, the band is not afraid to take chances while staying true to their authentic roots--and it’s working. When ATOMGA take
s the stage, it depicts organized chaos at its finest. With every performance, you get a 4-piece power-packed horn section, a steadfast percussion trifecta, a deep-groving rhythm section, and solid, engaging soloists. Every show turns into a booty-shaking dance party that leaves audiences exhausted from moving, but still craving more.

Over the past year, ATOMGA has supported Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, See-I (featuring members of Thievery Corporation), Juno What?!, The Pimps of Joytime and Balkan Beat Box. They have performed at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom, The Boulder Theater, Belly Up - Aspen, Ullrs Tavern, Summit Music Hall, Desert Rocks Music Festival and are already becoming a staple in the Colorado and regional festival circuit. ATOMGA has received positive acclaim from publications including Denver Westword, Listen Up Denver, Intity Weekly and Mountain News Weekly.

ATOMGA continues to hone their craft with no inkling of complacency while continuing their “kick the audience in the face” momentum. With an unyielding desire to share the infectious energy their music has to offer, ATOMGA will continuously connect your mind, body and soul.

The Sextones

From the wild deserts of Reno, Nevada, The Sextones are a family of music renegades known for viciously executed soul compositions and white-knuckle driving funk. With Mark Sexton on guitar accompanied by the commanding rhythm section of Alexander Korostinsky on bass, Daniel Weiss on drums and Ryan Taylor on keys, this band is redefining the sound of modern soul.

Their musical chemistry began forming in grade school, and as young adults their chops defy their age. Eager to hit the road, the band started touring heavily during high school, often lying about their age to play in dingy bars. In 2016 The Sextones are gaining recognition on the major festival circuit and beyond, with appearances at Railroad Earth's Hangtown Halloween Ball and Wanderlust Festival in Tahoe.

"We are always hungry for more and we're more than ready for the next big thing" Mark states, referring to a recent tour opening for Toubab Krewe. In recent months they've also shared the bill with Macy Gray, Charles Bradley, Dumpstaphunk, and their idols are beginning to take notice.

Formally known as Mark Sexton Band, their 2013 release, Young & Naïve, was mixed by none other than legendary drummer Alan Evans of Soulive. "It sounded great even before I got my hands on it", explains Alan Evans, "that's what happens when you get great players playing great songs." The album was recorded in Los Angeles by Emmy Award winning engineer Larold Rebhun whose resume alone is like reading a 'who's who' list in Hollywood.

Tipping their hats to the days of Tower of Power and Stevie Wonder, The Sextones are forging the path for a new generation of funk and soul.
