My Blue Sky
My Blue Sky
“Honoring the music of the Allman Brothers family of bands”
Award winning My Blue Sky is comprised of 7 experienced Colorado musicians that all share the passion and love of the music of the Allman Brothers Band (and family of bands). The Allman Brothers Band have a unique blend of southern rock, blues, and jazz that have inspired musicians and fans for decades. Their music and performances have created memories for everyone that have stood the test of time. It is in that spirit that we honor their music.
Tenth Mountain Division
Tenth Mountain Division
"This bands ruminating respect for music of the past, and deep dedication towards the creative crafting of a new sound, sets Tenth Mountain Division apart in the Colorado music scene. Tenth Mountain Division speaks the language of Colorado, the language of the mountains.” (Noah Stein - CU Independent) Originating from Boulder, CO, founders Winston Heuga (Mandolin) and MJ Ouimette (Electric/Acoustic Guitar) originally sought to create an acoustic bluegrass outfit. After a few years dedicated to playing bluegrass, the duo transitioned to an electrified, rock’n’roll sound. Through out its preliminary years finding their roots in college and playing with an array of different line-ups, the band finally found their permanent line up in May of 2017 with the addition of bassist and vocalist Andrew Cooney. Drummer Tyler Gwynn and the ever-talented keyboard player Campbell Thomas form the quintet that creates a diverse soundscape combining soaring electric guitar leads and jabbing keys while retaining its roots in bluegrass with Heuga’s incomparable mandolin style. The rhythmic interplay of Cooney's driving bass fused with Gwynn’s incendiary drumming round out the unique sounding band that is truly a style of its own; what the band refers to as "Ski Rock". Tenth Mountain Division has evolved greatly since its inception but retains its roots in the American musical styles of rock, Americana, bluegrass, prog and the crossroads between them all. Since TMD’s first national tour upon earning a slot at the 2016 Summer Camp Music Festival with headlining acts like Tom Petty’s Mud Crutch, Moe, and Umphrey’s Mcgee, the band has embarked all across this country playing esteemed venues like Boulder's Fox Theater, Baton Rouge's Varsity Theatre, Austin's The Parish, Nashville's Acme Feed & Seed, Baltimore's 8X10, and many more; The band has played festivals including Summer Camp, Beanstalk, Head for the Hills, Pardee Palooza and after parties for the likes of Dead & Company, Twiddle, STS9, Moon Taxi, and Marcus King Band. TMD has shared the stage with artist such as Nicki Bluhm, Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band/ Bela Fleck), Bill Payne (Little Feet), Jeff Austin ( Yonder Mountain String Band), Jeremy Garret ( Infamous String Dusters), Andy Thorn and Alwyn Robinson (Leftover Salmon), Jon Stickley Trio, and contemporaries such as The Magic Beans and Spafford. This is only the beginning, stay tuned for all thats to come!
Modern Whiskey Market
Modern Whiskey Market
Modern Whiskey Market came about from friends coming together to play music. We are largely inspired by bluegrass artists but also draw from inspirations outside the genre to form our unique sound. Each member has been playing for years and brings a different sound to the table. We pride ourselves on playing mostly original music blended with unique covers.
