Whiskey Tango
Whiskey Tango
For the past three years, the Denver based quintet Whiskey Tango has been motivating Colorado crowds to move their feet with their high energy shows and high octane attitude. This Bluegrass band has grass roots, and they recently emerged from their basement studio with their debut album Groggy Mountain Mornings. Capturing the rawness of the band, as well as their tenacious tone and attitude, this album reeks of wild west whiskey fueled thoughts and has a cornucopia of sounds that may surprise you. This band isn't just Bluegrass, it’s “foot stomping slamgrass.”

Formed within Denver’s Jamband scene, Whiskey Tango embraces sounds from many genres and brings it all to a boil with mind blowing live improvisation. For 52 weeks straight, Whiskey Tango had a standing Tuesday night gig at Denver’s Jamband headquarters, Quixote's True Blue, and “Tango Tuesdays” became a fixture of the Denver scene. That year shaped Whiskey Tango into a band on a mission to get their music heard by a wider audience and eventually led the band to trim their line-up down to five core members.

While they are the first to admit there is no way a studio recording can capture the energy of their explosive live show, Groggy Mountain Mornings showcases the bands diversity. The album features elements of Bluegrass, Country, Rock, Funk, Reggae and Psychedelia-woven together into one seamless collection of songs. Unanimous love for The Grateful Dead just may well be the unifying thread that holds the Whiskey Tango tapestry together and their love of “Space” left no space unfilled.

Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank
Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank
"The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank is a band comprised of two brothers, Teague and Ian Thomas Alexy, who started the group just because they enjoyed playing music and hanging out. They classify themselves as an American folk blues duo, however, they made a moniker for themselves called "dirty folk n roll" and they believe that encompasses their style. They are both songwriters and write a great variety across the genres. The group is inspired by "simplicity and longevity." -Amanda Kvam, Duluth-Superior Magazine
