Producers Hank Brigham and James Hatch began collaborating and making music in summer 2014. They quickly found that the blend of unique styles and talent created a whole most definitely greater than the sum of its parts. Each member has a different musical background:
James Hatch - Keys/Synth & Production
Hank Brigham - Rhythm, Bass, Saxophone, & Production
Robert Slange - Drums
Vince Seidl - Guitar & Production
and a commitment to embracing as many influences as possible. While the group has a penchant for 70s funk and live instrument elements, there is nothing off limits when it comes to the flavor of the music. Each new song is a chance to explore a new aural landscape, and each new show has an element of jam and improvisation that sets it apart. Every experience is a new collision.

His influences are by the sounds of Bassnectar, Minnesota, Mr. Carmack, Unlimited Gravity, Project Aspect, Marty Party / Panty Raid along with a strong Rock n Roll background.
AfAmoramora is a traveling, working, multipurpose rock and jazz fusion quartet from Boulder, Colorado. With members from Chicago, Cleveland, Washington D.C., and Boulder, the band formed after crossing paths in 2015 and has been performing as well as expanding their extensive catalog with original material ever since. After gaining traction amongst the legendary students at the University of Colorado. The band quickly jumped from packed house parties, to small bars, and now to bigger stages. An Amoramora experience is an eclectic mix of improvisational musical gumbo, blending and stirring together integral aspects of Progressive Funk, Psychedelic Rock, African High Life, Jazz, Bluegrass, and Soul. Astronomic compositions take the listener on an engaging journey while whimsical and captivating lyrics fuel the fire of musical imagery. The instrumentation of guitar, bass, percussion, trumpet, and EWI mixed in with vocal harmonies add up to truly original and endless musical possibilities – and have been proven to create large dance parties as well.
The quartet, two of which are formally trained jazz musicians from University of Colorado at Boulder & University of Miami, create a fresh and different set list every night to keep their audience engaged and returning to listen to what the four have to offer. Often creating intriguing theme nights for audiences members, in 2016 the band hosted a ‘Big Lebowski Night’ in their hometown, complete with two sets of original material, costumes, extensive production, and musical teases with covers tied into the selection inspired by the feature film.
Members of Amoramora have had the experience to work with fantastic musicians such as Jeff Coffin from the Dave Matthews Band, Mars Williams and Liquid Soul, Rufus Reed, Brad Goode, John Gunther, Todd Smallie from The Derek Trucks Band, Merl Sanders, Melvin Seals & The Jerry Garcia Band, and many more.
Amoramora had the honor of sharing the stage with other legendary and blossoming musicians from projects like Melvin Seals & JGB, Dead Phish Orchestra, The Drunken Hearts, EGi., and Polytoxic.

Mojo Medicine Show
The Mojo Medicine Show is a unique blues duo with deep roots in the music of Jazz Gillum, Gus Cannon, Washboard Sam, Sonny Terry & Jimmy Rogers. Our music takes you down to Beale Street in Memphis in the 1920's, the porches of rural Louisiana in the 1930's, the Chitlin' Circuit of Mississippi in the 1940's and then up to Chicago in the 1950's. We specialize in original, psychedelic, back porch blues blending the jug juice of 1920's juke with the electric kool-aid jams of the 1960's.
