Wabakinoset
Wabakinoset
Wabakinoset ("waba kin ahh set"), founded a the University of Denver, is a Dance-Rock Quartet that blends high energy rhythms with an improvisational style of rock, jazz, and electronic music. Their live performances focus on dancey grooves, fluid improvisation, and complex setlists.
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.
Metafonics
Metafonics
meta - denoting something of a higher or second-order kind
fonics - pertains to sound, communication, pronunciation, and teaching

Metafonics is a four-piece straight from the vibrant musical hotbed of Denver, CO. The group prides itself on its genre variation, alternating jazzy fusion rock, spacey electronic bangers, and smooth hip-hop. Their sonic range is made possible by a wide array of synthesizers blended into shredding guitar licks, screaming keys, smooth bass and heavy-hitting drums. The result is a temperamental concoction of grooves that defies expectations and leaves no subgenre unexplored.

They have shared the stage with such national acts as Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, The Magic Beans, Jaden Carlson, & Genetics. They are also no stranger to collaboration with other local bands, and love bringing together players of all backgrounds for a unique live experience.

Metafonics released their first EP in 2014, titled "Daydream Out Loud." And with a debut full-length album coming this summer, 2017, they are setting their sights on developing a sound that is unmatched across the nation.
Metafonics is setting the stage for major developments in the near future, look forward for big things to come!
