Skydyed
Skydyed
Emerging from Fort Collins, Colorado, Skydyed is a three-piece band that blends cutting edge electronic production with live instrumentation.

Featuring Andrew Slattery on bass synths and bass guitar, Max Doucette on guitar and keys, and Shane Eagen on drums, the band integrates generations of the state’s extensive musical heritage with their own deep-seated ties to the electronic music scene. With roots in rock, funk and jazz, Skydyed has created their own, diverse sound that intertwines organic live drums, bass and guitar through soulful jam, hard-hitting bass and profound break-beats. With their unique and advanced production, Skydyed has established itself as a can’t miss performance that bridges the gap between EDM and live music.

Since their emergence in early 2014, Skydyed has seen their presence ascend exponentially. Already, they have donned the stage at Arise Music Festival, a sold out Bluebird Theatre with RJD2, as well as the legendary Red Rocks Ampitheatre at last years’ Feed The Rocks event. Their debut EP, ‘New Horizons’ is available for free download on Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp.

Brandon Theis, known as The Orcastrator, was born in a small town in Brazil. Moving to America at the age of 2, he began growing up in the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan area where he was always a boy who sought exploration, whether it be skateboarding, rock climbing, jumping off a bridge, he was always one not to sit still. He began to be influenced by the hip-hop and skateboarding culture. Heavily influence by rappers like Tupac and Eminem to groups like, A Tribe Called Quest and The Beatles there are many influences and tastes that are helping to influence a sound of Bossanova Disco Jazz Funk mixed with a new kind of Electronic Future Soul. In 2015, The Orcastrator moved to Denver, Colorado to join the constantly changing and ever so funky electronic music scene.
Mikey Thunder
Mikey Thunder
Mikey Thunder likes to party. But more than that, Mikey Thunder just so happens to be the party. Thunder spins a genre-blending, bass-driven partyrock, fusing banging electronic beats with funk, hip-hop, soul, jazz, blues, swing, reggae and anything else the party may call for on the fly. With 19 years in the game, he's mastered the art of improvisation with an uncanny ability to work with and rework the vibe of the party with precision. If you’re a true connoisseur of the Colorado music scene, you’ve seen Mikey share the stage with any number of your favorite artists- no matter the genre.

It all began for Mikey at the age of 15 when he discovered DJing in Springfield , Mass. Thru friends older brother's record collections and the Hiphop scene in the city. From there he moved up to Burlington Vt. and immersed himself in the diverse musical culture. In the fall of 1999, he relocated to the mountains of Jackson Hole where he was soon kidnapped by Michael Franti and Spearhead for the Stay Human Tour. After opening for Spearhead in Jackson Hole, Thunder was handpicked by Michael Franti to open the rest of the tour, where he mixed beats into their sets, during set break, and scratched with their beatboxer, Radioactive.

After the Spearhead tour Mikey relocated to Boulder and continued to pursue his musical career. At that time Thunder also was an Atari playing stuntman/ DJ in the band Sonar. The band shared the stage with the Wailers at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the String Cheese Incident, and played Hightimes Magazine’s SXSW party, and the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. In the fall of 2009 Mikey joined the Pretty Lights crew, opened for over 30 shows on their tours and performed cuts on the Making Up a Changing Mind EP, released in 2010. He also has played the sold out Red Rocks Amphitheater runs with PL in 2012/13/14.

Since that time, he has made his presence known in every single facet of the Colorado music industry. Over the years he has shared the stage with an extremely diverse range of musicians, including (but certainly not limited to): Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, The Disco Biscuits, Boombox, Soul Live, Lettuce, The Motet, Michal Menert, Nightmares on Wax, Mr. Scruff, DJ Krush, Bonobo, Z Trip, DJ Qbert, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Jurassic 5, Slick Rick, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface killa, Red Man, Juicy J, and Big Boi of Outkast. Additionally, he has been prominently featured on such festivals as Shambhala, Sonic Bloom, Snowball, Global Dance Festival, and many others.

Mikey Thunder’s true talent lies in his versatility. Every Thunder performance presents something familiar in an entirely unfamiliar way, as well as something unfamiliar presented in a way that is immediately recognizable as Thunder.
