Dirty Revival
Dirty Revival
Dirty Revival, a seven piece Soul/Rock band hailing for Portland, OR, is quickly gaining notoriety for their inspired songwriting and impressive live performances and has been electrifying stages across the US since 2013.

Fronted by Portland native, Sarah Clarke, who’s powerful vocals and engaging stage presence immediately command attention, the rest of the band is comprised of six exceptional musicians, Evan “Evvnflo” Simko (Guitar + MC), Terry Drysdale (Drums), Jon Shaw (Bass), Ben Turner (Keys), Chris Hardin (Tenor Sax), Thomas Barber (Trumpet). Many of them friends since high school, each player is as good as the next and all of them exceptional in their own way, Dirty Revival functions like a well oiled machine with every part doing exactly what it’s supposed to. Dirty Revival’s democratic approach to music shows in their songwriting, their original music effortlessly incorporating several different genres of music. At times showcasing their unique take on the soul and funk sounds of the 60’s and 70’s, then, straddling the line between rock band and pop band, evoking more modern images in their sound. The care the group takes in the arrangement of their original music is reflected in their cover choices, known for their dynamic recreations of classic songs by artists ranging from NIN to Black Sabbath and Rage Against the machine, illustrates why it is difficult to put the Dirty Revival in any one genre of music.

Dirty Revival has shared the stage with many legendary acts including George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Michael Franti, The Motet, Gift Of Gab, Lyrics Born, and members of The Meters, George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo Modeliste. Participating in several notable events and venues, including Waterfront Blues Festival (OR), World Music Festival (CA), Arise Music Festival (CO), Upstream 2018 (WA), The Filmore (SF) and many more wrapped into the the several years of multi regional touring they have under their belt. Dirty Revival has also spent time in studio releasing a full length album (self-titled, Dirty Revival ) and a 7” record ( So Cold ). On stage or in your record player, Dirty Revival will captivate you from the very first note and give you a musical experience you will never forget.
Tula
Tula
Tula is a five piece progressive funk-rock band consisting of two guitars, drums, bass and a saxophone. Tula was first formed in Chicago by frontman Brian Duggan as the Brian Duggan Project in 2008. After touring and preforming in the Midwest for a few years, Duggan re-rooted the band to Denver and formed a permanent cast of musicians that makes up present day Tula. The group’s organic and unique style brings a refreshing diverse sound to the traditional jam band setup, and their live shows bring even the most reserved attendees to the dance floor as they infuse a variety of genres together from funky dance music to blues, reggae and of course, the at the bands core, rock n’ roll.
The Denver band spent the winter working on their first full-length album, Follow the Beast Inside, recorded at Scanhope Sound in Colorado with mastermind producer Joshua Fairman. Fairman has also produced and engineered albums for The New Mastersounds.and The Motet, respectively.
Tula is:
Brian Duggan – Vocals / Guitar
Joshua Gendal – Guitar
Jeremy Smith – Sax / Vocals
Logan Firth – Drums / Live Recording Guru
Jon Ham – Bass
Chompers
Chompers
Everyone who is in Chompers met in kindergarten. This is where they learned to play improvisational music. Their teachers forced them to listen to everything from Smash Mouth to Phish. They endured rigorous experimental training methods. The drummer Sam was often locked inside of the kick drum of various speed metal bands until he absorbed their power. In second grade the band had their first major breakthrough when their song "Break Ya Dick" hit number one on the charts in Japan. Chompers began their first world tour at the start of the following summer break. They played 90 consecutive sold out arena shows. The tour came to an abrupt halt when their manager was arrested for transporting minors across state lines. Following the arrest they decided to take a break to focus on their writing, after all they were not prepared what the rockstar lifestyle had in store for them. They moved into a secret base deep within the Rocky Mountains where they spent the next two decades developing their sound. Chompers finally emerged in the year 2017 AD and to celebrate their arrival the wizards who control the years decided to restart the years. It is now year 1 TC (in the Time of Chompers). Catch them at a venue near you!
