Grantful Dead
Grantful Dead
rantful Dead Revue is an All-Star Amalgamation of Grant Farm and Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Revue. The Rhythm Devils combo of Sean "Magic" Macaulay and Mayor Jake Wolf on Double Drums rolls like Thunder against the Lesh-ist punctuation of Adrian "Ace" Engfer on Bass. Riding the monster wave of rhythm are Kevin "Money" McHugh on Keyboards, Arthur Lee Land on Bobby Guitar and "Champ" Tyler Grant on Lead Garcia Guitar. The core members of this group were granted the #2 honor of the "Ten Best Moments of WinterWonderGrass Tahoe 2016" from JamBase.com, for their spearheading of the annual Pickin' On the Dead sets. https://www.jambase.com/article/10-best-moments-winter-wondergrass-2016

Providing an authentic Live Grateful Dead experience, this six-piece band cherishes the opportunity to come together with love for the Deadheads.

In 2018 Grantful Dead Revue is featured on the main stage of WinterWonderGrass Steamboat.
Rapidgrass
Rapidgrass
When a snowflake falls it melts to stream, and eventually meets the creek. The creek then pours down though the canyon and the rapids begin to speak.

The celebration of mountains and whitewater rapids is the inspiration for everything Rapidgrass. Rapidgrass is original mountain music influenced by an active, outdoor lifestyle. Brought together through music and love for mountains, Rapidgrass defines modern, acoustic, Colorado mountain music.

The lineup of Rapidgrass includes Colorado native and pro skier Mark Morris (guitar, vocals); Coleman Smith (violin, mandolin, vocals); Carl Minorkey (upright bass, tenor banjo, vocals); and Alex Johnstone (mandolin, fiddle, vocals). Adjunct players include Billy Cardine (dobro, vocals, recording producer) and Kyle Hauser (banjo, vocals). This font range Colorado ensemble uses classical, gypsy, bluegrass, pop, swing, and other world rhythms to create what is, and can only be described of as, Rapidgrass.

Rapidgrass Music Festival and Rapidgrass the ensemble were twins born of the desire to celebrate the rapids of Clear Creek and the mountains of Idaho Springs through mountain music, each complementing the other. Rapidgrass released its first CD, RAPIDGRASS QUINTET, in 2013 and was voted top 5 mountain albums by the Mountain Arts Culture Colorado. In 2015 Rapidgrass then released CROOKED ROAD and went on to win the prestigious ROCKYGRASS band contest that same year. Rapidgrass is currently producing their 3rd album, HAPPY TRAILS, which is due to be released at the eighth annual Rapidgrass Music Festival this June 23-25. Rapidgrass has had the pleasure of bringing mountain music throughout Colorado, Alaska, the lower 48, and the European Alps. Rapidgrass is eager to kick off their 2017 music endeavors.
Rum Creek
Rum Creek
This ain't Pappy's bluegrass .. when Chris Thompson & Nathan Peoples (of CORAL CREEK) team up with Erik Yates (of Hot Buttered Rum) and Adrian Engfer (The Grant Farm) you’re gonna hear something a bit out of the ordinary.

But when you hear that high lonesome saxo-fiddle soaring over the rolling banjo... you’ll be glad you found RUM CREEK.
