Jaden Carlson Band
Jaden Carlson Band
With one foot in the funk world and the rest kicking through the retro, fusion, and dance doors, the Jaden Carlson Band are a four-piece “funksion” ensemble from Boulder, Colorado led by female guitarist, vocalist, keyboardist and producer, Jaden Carlson. The group is comprised of some of the best talent to be heard, with varied backgrounds coming together from all over the country on bass, drums and keys.

Jaden Carlson, the front of JCB, with her oft face-melting prowess on the guitar as well as thought-provoking lyricism, has led many to tag her as an “old soul” and “well beyond her years.” Low in age but tour-mature, Jaden leads the music with the poise and character of a highly accomplished professional.

Chris Hunnicutt brings his low-end rhythm from years of gigging in the hotbed of Minneapolis gospel, funk, blues, jazz and hip-hop.

Eric Imbrosciano’s depth of experience in blues, hip-hop, funk and jazz stems from his early years beating his drums around the New York scene before making his musical home in Colorado.

Adam Revell’s versatility from multi-genre influences and years of gigging with many different bands shines through in his playing the keys while providing soulful and melodic harmony on piano, organ and synthesizer.

The band has been appearing at some of the nation’s most notable festivals: Summer Camp, The Friendly Gathering, The Vertex Festival,80/35, Bumbershoot, LEAF Festival, The Werkout Music and Art Festival, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, ARISE Festival, Bohemian Nights, and many others.

The Jaden Carlson Band has headlined major venues all over Colorado, as well as played direct support for national touring bands Twiddle, The Revivalists, The Werks, DeVotchKa, Robert Cray, Anders Osborne, and Marco Benevento just to name a few.

“Polychromatic”, an 11-song cd of all originals, is Jaden’s fourth album and was released in October 2014, to both highly regarded journalistic and musician/peer reviews.

Jaden is the youngest musician to play legitimately on the the Red Rocks Stage at age 11 with Michael Franti and Spearhead, and again the next night with Blues Traveler; and has also played numerous sit-ins with Umphrey’s McGee, The Revivalists, Lettuce, Dumpstaphunk, The Main Squeeze, The Nth Power, Twiddle, The Werks, TAUK, Zoogma, The Motet, Dopapod, members of Snarky Puppy, Vulfpeck, Big Gigantic, and many more.
Isaiah Sharkey
Isaiah Sharkey
A native Chicagoan, 28-year-old Isaiah Sharkey spent his early years living in Cabrini Green. Perhaps as a precursor to his future career, he lived with his parents in a row house on a street that is now named for Curtis Mayfield.

Coming from a musical household, Isaiah was introduced to music at the age of four. He decided he wanted to be a guitarist and asked his parents to purchase one. Shortly thereafter, Isaiah started learning music under the close introduction of his father, Michael Sharkey. He would learn about different musical genres/styles from gospel music -- which came from growing up in the church -- to jazz, R&B, blues, rock and funk music. It wasn't long after that Isaiah would become noticed by other musicians in the Chicago area for being a young new talent. Soon after, he started doing concerts in the church as well as sitting in local jazz club jams.

At the age of 14, Isaiah, along with his father and brothers, released their first album entitled, "Skyliner." This album displayed Isaiah's ability to play covers and some transcriptions from greats like Wes Montgomery and George Benson.
Subsequently, he started his recording career and served as a sideman for gospel artists such as Smokie Norful, Donald Lawrence and Vanessa Bell Armstrong. He also toured as lead guitarist with Ronald Isley and recorded two albums with him.
In 2009, Isaiah started working with artist D'Angelo on his third album, Black Messiah, which won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. Based on his work and contribution to the project, Isaiah received his first Grammy.

Isaiah also has worked, recorded, and toured with several world-renown and Grammy award winning artists including John Mayer, Patti Labelle, Christopher Martin of Coldplay, Paul Simon, Corrine Bailey Rae, Mike Posner, Keith Urban, Brian McKnight, Boyz II Men, Lalah Hathaway, Raphael Saadiq, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Dave and the DrumHedz, Regina Bell, Ruben Studdard, Lupe Fiasco, Kelly Price, Faith Evans, Rance Allen, The Winans, The Clark Sisters and many others.

Isaiah Sharkey is poised to take center stage as he fuses together his background in rock, gospel, jazz, R&B, blues, and funk to create an original sound with an unmistakable dose of soul. His first digital offering is his distinctive rendition of Cream’s classic “Sunshine of Your Love.” The second offering Isaiah wrote, “Sandy” is also now available digitally worldwide. His highly anticipated debut album Love.Life.Live. was released in September of 2017 and earned him the iHeart Radio Artist of the Month in November for his single “It’s a Shame” featuring DJ Jazzy Jeff. His sophomore album Love is the Key: The Cancerian Theme will be released this summer.
Dog City Disco
Dog City Disco
Dog City Disco is a psychedelic-funk rock band, formed in Boulder Colorado in 2011. All raised in the mountains of Colorado near Breckenridge, the group of friends have been together for over 15 years, which gives them a very tight bond that can be seen through their music. Combining elements of rock, funk, reggae and jazz they form their own unique sound to get your ass shakin' and your heart pumping.

DCD was originally known as the Chronic Liar's. The band went through a barrage of name changes (The Boondiggas and The Tympo's being the longest lasting), until they re-branded as Dog City Disco in 2017. 2017 has shown a lot of promising moves for Dog City Disco, including their first out of state shows, a new single, a music video in the making, and played their first music festival.

With raging guitar solo's and funky bass lines; catchy horn riffs, and lyric's you can't get out of your head; they bring a live experience that won't soon be forgotten. So put your party pants on, get your best dance moves ready and let's boogie the night away.
