Amoramora
AfAmoramora is a traveling, working, multipurpose rock and jazz fusion quartet from Boulder, Colorado. With members from Chicago, Cleveland, Washington D.C., and Boulder, the band formed after crossing paths in 2015 and has been performing as well as expanding their extensive catalog with original material ever since. After gaining traction amongst the legendary students at the University of Colorado. The band quickly jumped from packed house parties, to small bars, and now to bigger stages. An Amoramora experience is an eclectic mix of improvisational musical gumbo, blending and stirring together integral aspects of Progressive Funk, Psychedelic Rock, African High Life, Jazz, Bluegrass, and Soul. Astronomic compositions take the listener on an engaging journey while whimsical and captivating lyrics fuel the fire of musical imagery. The instrumentation of guitar, bass, percussion, trumpet, and EWI mixed in with vocal harmonies add up to truly original and endless musical possibilities – and have been proven to create large dance parties as well.

The quartet, two of which are formally trained jazz musicians from University of Colorado at Boulder & University of Miami, create a fresh and different set list every night to keep their audience engaged and returning to listen to what the four have to offer. Often creating intriguing theme nights for audiences members, in 2016 the band hosted a ‘Big Lebowski Night’ in their hometown, complete with two sets of original material, costumes, extensive production, and musical teases with covers tied into the selection inspired by the feature film.

Members of Amoramora have had the experience to work with fantastic musicians such as Jeff Coffin from the Dave Matthews Band, Mars Williams and Liquid Soul, Rufus Reed, Brad Goode, John Gunther, Todd Smallie from The Derek Trucks Band, Merl Sanders, Melvin Seals & The Jerry Garcia Band, and many more.

Amoramora had the honor of sharing the stage with other legendary and blossoming musicians from projects like Melvin Seals & JGB, Dead Phish Orchestra, The Drunken Hearts, EGi., and Polytoxic.
