WhiteWater Ramble
WhiteWater Ramble
Described as High-Octane Rocky Mountain DanceGrass, Whitewater Ramble (WWR) uses a simple recipe to craft its sound: start with bluegrass instrumentation, add drums, and finish with a boundary- less approach to grassing-up everything from disco house grooves to roots to Americana. For over ten years, WWR has been captivating audiences across the U.S. with an engaging stage presence and insightful and poignant lyrics.

Whitewater Ramble is now on tour behind their second studio release Roots & Groove. The album showcases WWR’s growth as songwriters and musicians. Produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth, the album features an array of special guests such as Andy Hall on dobro (Infamous Stringdusters), Andy Thorn on banjo (Leftover Salmon), Grammy Award winner John Macy on pedal steel and Bill McKay on piano. Roots & Groove showcases a roots influenced band blending the traditions of early American music with a newgrass flair and a groovegrass twist.

Roots & Groove is storytelling through nefarious narratives, murderous ballads, devilish villanelles, scorned lover’s laments and intoxicant-infused ramblings blended with mystical visions and instrumental journeys. Through blistering picking, engaging harmonies and alluring grooves, the ensemble burrows flagrantly into tragedy, comedy, redemption, overindulgence, morality and shady dealings as the backdrop for their genuine and eccentric style of writing.

The Colorado-bred quintet combines the elements of mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums and vocals to explore the musical boundaries of multiple genres and to fuel their own mixture of original music and innovative cover song interpretations. Whether playing an intimate encore, acoustic and unplugged in the crowd, or surfing on top of the upright bass, Whitewater Ramble delivers a powerful and memorable live performance.

Their debut studio album All Night Drive was released in the summer of 2010 to rave reviews and critical acclaim. Also produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth, the album featured 12 original genre-bending tracks and firmly cemented Whitewater Ramble as a band on the rise.

WWR has had the privilege of supporting, touring with and sharing stages with Railroad Earth, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Greensky Bluegrass, Cornmeal, The Infamous Stringdusters, Dark Star Orchestra, Little Feat, Papa Mali, The New Mastersounds, The Gourds, The David Grisman Quintet, Jerry Douglas, Lotus, Splitlip Rayfiled, Members of the String Cheese Incident, Particle, Hot Buttered Rum, Drew Emmitt of Leftover Salmon, DJ Logic, Donna The Buffalo, The Contribution, The Motet, Tea Leaf Green, Henry Butler, Vince Herman and Great American Taxi, Peter Rowan, Tony Furtado and many more.

Based in Fort Collins, CO, WWR has performed and headlined on every major stage across the Rocky Mountain Region. With over 900+ performances under their belt, the group has truly established themselves as one of the hardest working groups in the jam scene today.

A diverse festival resume has helped bring WWR to stages at events like the Northwest String Summit, Wakarusa, Yonder Mountain’s Harvest Festival, Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival, 80/35 Festival, Nedfest, Bohemian Nights NewWestFest, The Wildflower Pavilion at RockyGrass, Copper Mountain Sunsation, Desert Rocks Music Festival, Love Your Mother Earth Music Festival, Keystone Bluegrass and Brews, The Denver People's Fair, South Park Music Festival, Westword's Music Showcase, numerous Brew Festivals, and their own annual two day music and camping festival, Ramble on the River.
Pickin' On Ween
Pickin' On Ween
A mutual love and appreciation of the music of WEEN inspired Denver and Boulder musicians to form PICKIN' on WEEN. Since playing its first gig a little over a year ago, PICKIN' on WEEN has played several successful and inspired shows in the Denver area. Utilizing an acoustic based, improvisational approach, P.o.W. delivers fresh, creative arrangements that are a testament to Ween's exceptional songwriting, playing selections from each of Ween's eight studio albums.

Pickin' on Ween is comprised of some of Colorado's finest players, including Matt Flaherty on guitar (Hot Soup, Matt Flaherty Band), Damon Wood on guitar (Harmonious Junk, James Brown), Chris Ramey on pedal steel (Solo, Danny Shafer), and Jim Sullivan on bass (Runaway Truck Ramp, Pickin' on Dead/Phish), as well as a revolving cast of the area's finest pickers.
