Greener Grounds is a four piece jamtronica band based out of Denver, CO. They quickly gained momentum and secured a name for themselves in the highly competitive jam band music scene with performances at Backwoods Music Festival, Highberry Music Festival, SONIC BLOOM, and many more. Inspired by the likes of Lotus, STS9, the Disco Biscuits, Phish, and Umphrey’s Mcgee, they blend many styles including psychedelic funk, rock, trance fusion, and break beats. Their eclectic sound continues to take crowds by surprise ensuring a lively, danceable, and energetic vibe where ever the road takes them.

Holding themselves to a high standard, Greener Grounds is comprised of passion, collective consciousness, environmental sustainability and unity, which is all expressed through their music. Constantly evolving in their sound, performance, and presence, they have caught the attention of sponsors, stages, and festivals all around the United States. Their “Practice makes perfect” mentality is visible in their connection to each other and their fans at each show.

Collidoscope
Collidoscope
Collidoscope is all about the joining of forces, the smashing together of worlds. We believe that the most phenomenal ideas are formed where individual experiences, tastes, and backgrounds cross paths and spill into each other.

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.
