After moving back to the southeast from Boston, Allen continued to work as a teacher and percussion instructor while touring with the band “Skydog Gyspy." In 2005 Aucoin acquired his current role as the drummer for Philadelphia electronic act, the Disco Biscuits. Since winning the “drum off” held by the Biscuits in Atlantic City, Allen has played 450-500 shows with the quartet including shows at the Gorge Amphitheatre and Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Keep an eye out for live shows and studio work from Drfameus!
STS9 as the front man and band
leader, David Murphy left the band in early 2014 with the desire to work with vocals, soloist's and create a more focused sound. Since then he has recently formed the band Seven Arrows, been DJ'ing and performing in supergroups across the country. Playing in the supergroups has given David the chance to delve back into improv and freeform music which was so much apart of the formation of STS9. 2015 has much on the horizon for David musically so keep your ears and eyes open for his next musical endeavours.
"Fox Street just might be the most unique band on this list, fusing a honky-tonk inspired soul sound in with the funky freshness of the jam scene... The press train continues to add critical acclaim to the band... Fox Street is a top band to watch in 2014."
While the band is proud to be a part of the vibrant Denver music community, they have been making strides on the national scene as well: Fox Street was named a “must see” act at Musikfest 2013 (America’s largest free music festival in Bethelhem, PA) by both theLos Angeles Times and The Chicago Tribune.
Fox Street boasts a big, soulful rock n' roll sound laced with three-part harmonies, screaming guitars, soulful sax, and a devastatingly funky rhythm section. It certainly helps that the members of Fox Street share varied influences throughout American roots music -- blues, jazz, country and a whole lotta funk -- but also having shared the experience of taking Fox Street on the road together gives the band a certain tightness, a dynamic range that simply cannot be acquired any other way. Over the past five years, Fox Street played hundreds of shows, maintained a relentless coast-to-coast tour schedule and spent countless of hours in the studio with Denver engineer/producer Josh Fairman (New Mastersounds, Ivan Neville, Kinetix) crafting two internationally acclaimed, self-produced, full-length albums: Welcome to Mighty Pleasin’ (2010) and Tough Talk (2013).
It’s the Fox Street sound that’s landed the band gigs sharing the bill and often the stage with contemporary touring acts like Tedeschi Trucks Band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Robert Randolph and The Family Band and Galactic; as well as members of legendary groups including The Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat, and The Meters.
2014 is set to be another landmark year for Fox Street -- In addition to writing and recording new music and expanding their United States tour schedule, the band is currently booking its first European trek for later this fall.

Based around a studio project involving The Shady Horns (Soulive), Joe Tatton (The New Mastersounds), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk)
and Joey Porter (The Motet/Juno What?!) as well as some of Denver’s finest local talent (members of The Congress, Fox Street All Stars, Kinetix, Rebel Tounge, Devon Parker, Convergence) Analog Son will released their self-titled debut in the spring of 2014.
“some funky, trippy jazz-funk from an awesome set of players.”- Joe Tatton
This funky brainchild was born at Scanhope Sound in fall 2013. While Josh and Jordan had conceptualized this project for years, much of the composition was impromptu as each guest musician brought their own unique brand of artistry to the table stirring up a sizzling musical melting pot.
Their first single, “Analog Island” showcases the unmistakable articulation and harmony of Ryan Zoidis and Eric Bloom(The Shady Horns) as their melodies naturally integrate with Josh and Jordan’s rhythmic chemistry and vision to create a fresh funk-fusion project.The end result takes advantage of modern production and technology while using the finest vintage equipment and tape machines to fuse together both classic engineering and modern musicianship.
This studio finesse translates effortlessly into the live setting. In their short existence, Analog Son has supported The Funky Meters, Trombone Shorty
& Orleans Avenue, The New Mastersounds and Orgone at some of Colorado’s premiere venues. Live audio engineer, Joe Michaels (The Rolling Stones; Larry Graham; Blood, Sweat and Tears), immediately remarks on the authentic funk revival Linit and Fairman have managed to pull off. He states that “mixing these guys is like pure funk heaven....reminds me of my Larry Graham days!”Analog Son’s debut album will be available April 1, 2014 and the CD release party will take place at Cervantes’ Other Side on March 28 with special guests.
Kinetix’s rise from their humble Denver roots into a nationally touring band is the result of talent, enthusiasm and a lot of hard work. Formed at the Lamont School of Music at Denver University, Kinetix was originally meant as a vehicle to blow off steam and play music at weekend hangouts. However, their popularity during those early days became a campus phenomenon that quickly outgrew the limited confines of house parties and campus events. Within two years of forming, Kinetix was selling out local theatres and collecting invites to summer festivals nationwide. Encouraged by the warm response, the band set out to establish themselves nationally and have been building their fanbase ever since.
The eleven tracks of Let Me In were engineered and mixed by Jason Livermore at the reputably rock and roll Blasting Room Studios and mastered by Chris Gehringer of Sterling Sound. The new album builds upon the band’s reputation as a live tour de force, but now heralds the rock quintet as studio musicians capable of creating an album worthy of mainstream radio play.
O-NEB consists of Fleeb Thomas on bass, Dan Raasch on Drums and Matt Newhard on Guitar. These musicians have come together not only to inspire the dance floor (which they do on a regular basis), but also to spread positive vibrations through music.
The rise of O-NEB has been swift and complete, as was evidenced at the first show they ever played together, a sold-out gig at Colorado's famous Mishawaka Amphitheater with musical icons from across the pond, Shpongle and Ott. In addition to these two major names, O-NEB has shared the stage with such heavy-hitters as the Disco Biscuits, Random Rab, Bluetech, Lotus, David Murphy (of STS9), Ana Sia, Eskmo, Boombox, Signal Path, EOTO, and RJD2.
Currently laying out the textured psychedelic grooves for their first album, O-NEB shuns the formulaic in favor of a purely original sound, a gamble that has paid off in the long run for this talented quartet. The music refuses to be classified and, as a result, gives the sense that the members of O-NEB are truly breaking new ground.
