Jay Roemer
Jay Roemer
Jay Roemer is the face of original, acoustic Americana and Bluegrass in the Colorado mountain town of Steamboat Springs. Jay first started turning heads in the state he calls home as the front man/songwriter for the band, Old Town Pickers. Deeply focused on intriguing lyrics, along with some fancy guitar work, his songs continue to connect with all types of audiences. Banjoist, Dave Carroll, of Trampled By Turtles, along with Bevin Foley (Trout Steak Revival), Jarett Mason (Chain Station), and Denton Turner join for a lively performance of a heartfelt, original set.

Dave Carroll
Progressive bluegrass band Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who'd ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn't rely on amplification. Simonett hadn't played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young (who'd previously played drums in a speed metal act) and jam band bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass.

Trampled by Turtles released their first record, Songs from a Ghost Town, in 2004. In a genre steeped in tradition, the album stood out for its contemporary sound, essentially bridging the gap between the bandmates' background in rock music and their new acoustic leanings. Blue Sky and the Devil (2005) and Trouble (2007) explored a similar sound, but it wasn't until 2008 and the band's fourth release, Duluth, that Trampled by Turtles received the full support of the bluegrass community. Duluth peaked at number eight on the Billboard bluegrass chart and paved the way for a number of festival appearances. When Palomino arrived in 2010, it was met with an even greater response, debuting at the top of the bluegrass chart and remaining in the Top Ten for more than a year. Two years later, their crossover appeal landed them at number 32 on the Billboard 200 pop charts upon the release of their sixth album, Stars and Satellites. In addition to major bluegrass and folk festivals, they began showing up at Coachella, Bumbershoot, and Lollapalooza. The official concert album, Live at First Avenue, followed in 2013, recorded at Minnesota's most famous venue. A year later, the band returned with the darker-toned Wild Animals, which bettered its studio predecessor on the album charts, reaching number 29.
World's Finest
World's Finest
It's been a wild and crazy ride for the fellas in World's Finest, since their modest beginning as an acoustic duo in Portland, OR living rooms in 2011. With a songwriting style rooted in Americana, the band banks on their ability to transcend genres of all kinds. String-centric and bluegrass-inspired compositions seamlessly transition into 3-Dimensional Psytrance, Funk, and Dub soundscapes, leaving their audience with a full circle experience of emotion and dance. Their appreciation for punk and ska can be found peppered throughout their shows and albums, made evident by up-tempo, high-energy offerings, reminiscent of such classic acts as NOFX and Operation Ivy. Never happy to settle, Chris, Dan, Sean, Evan, and Mike continue to push through boundaries and challenge themselves, while hoping to inspire their listeners to expect the most out of what a band in the modern age can be capable of conjuring up.
Five years, countless shows, and 4 albums later, the band is still firing on all cylinders. The current lineup features 5 members: Chris Couch (Guitar/Vocals), Dan Hurley (Banjo/Vocals), Sean McLean (Sax/Guitar/Vocals), Evan Malfer (Bass), and Mike Apodaca (Drums). Their paths have all crossed in Portland, by way of Ohio, Illinois, Eastern Oregon, New York and California. As a result of such diverse upbringings, it was inevitable that the band's sound reflected their coast to coast musical influences.
The latest offering from World's Finest is a 6 song EP, entitled “We Got Ourselves a Game Here”. Taking a new approach to their recording process, the band decided to record the album in front of a live audience at Hallowed Halls Studios in Portland. The result was nothing short of capturing lightning in a bottle. The quick paced track list of Ska-grass was wholly enhanced by their fans' infectious enthusiasm and energy.
World's Finest has hit the West Coast festival scene hard, making appearances at High Sierra, Northwest String Summit, 4 Peaks, What the Festival ?!, and Symbiosis, to name a few. Their unique style has allowed them to connect with fans from all different kinds of musical worlds. In addition, their chameleon-like approach to their live show has allowed them the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as Steel Pulse, Leftover Salmon, The Motet, The Expendables, Rusted Root, The Skatalites, Fruition, and many others.
Sage Fire
Sage Fire
Born in the high lonesome mountains and deserts of Colorado, SAGE FIRE, bears the soul of the native singer and guitarist Dax Hunter Jordan. His deep voice reflects the depth of his lyrics and songwriting. The string band of talented friends is just beginning their long journey. SAGE FIRE is driven by a unique high-energy western sound and style. They draw their influences from bluegrass, folk, americana and rocknroll, used as fuel for their spiritual music fire.
That Damn Sasquatch
That Damn Sasquatch
That Damn Sasquatch is comprised of musicians with a variety of musical interests and instrumentation, allowing the band to cross genres of music including and not limited to bluegrass, country, blues, cajun/zydeco, and jazz. With a balanced, progressive, and traditional approach their sound is truly their own. .
