SPAFFORD is an eclectic blend of driving rock, funk, dance, and light. The result is something like Electro-Funk Therapy. Melting through genres while creating an illuminated mind-and-mood altering experience night after night, Spafford is lighting up the southwest and beyond with their improvisational prowess. They are paving the way for something new, yet familiar, that beckons to be seen, heard and felt.
Since their first performance on New Years Eve of 2009, Spafford has built a following around the addictive live shows they put on. They have become a featured act for Vegas late-night spots, such as the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and The Palms, and the band has hosted many of the official after-parties for Further and Widespread Panic. When Spafford isn't playing notable festivals such as McDowell Mountain Music Festival, The Gem & Jam, Firefly Gathering and Serenity Gathering, they're off on the road touring the South-West where they've shared the stage with bands such as Wide Spread Panic, Hot Buttered Rum, Particle, EOTO, Tea Leaf Green, Howlin' Rain, The Motet, Toubab Krewe and many more as they continue to expand and extend their route to bring their experience to new places. 2015 has already brought the release of a long-awaited live CD, Volume 1 with many more to come.
Connecting with fans is always the primary focus of all of Spafford's endeavors. They understand the importance of embracing those who enjoy and connect with their music. A fan was recently quoted saying Spafford is what this world needs...a combination of all genres to connect all walks of life. Whether stopping to enjoy fresh local food, or making connections with new faces in new cities, Spafford continues to push forward with their goal of changing lives, one show at a time.

Montana-bred bluegrass outfit THE KITCHEN DWELLERS are captivating fans across the country with their high-energy live performances and unique approach to traditional music that fans have dubbed “Galaxy Grass.” Formed in 2010 while attending college at Montana State, the group has burst onto the bluegrass scene sharing the stage with acts such as Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters and Twiddle. In recent years the band has began to tour nationally hitting notable venues and festivals around the country including The Brooklyn Bowl, The Fox Theatre, Delfest, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Northwest String Summit, and The Frendly Gathering. Kitchen Dwellers will be hitting the road hard in 2016.
The Denver-based power trio, Cycles, comprised of Patrick Harvey (guitar), Michael Wood (drums), and Tucker McClung (bass/vocals) are on a musical mission to melt your mind. Self-described as “psychedelic rock fusion”, Cycles effortlessly blends rock, jazz, hip-hop, soul, and much more creating a versatile soundscape that makes each live show different than the last.
Striving for variety in each set, Cycles carefully construct a show designed to thrill. Each member brings a special set of skills and influences to the table. Living in the same house together and practicing hours upon hours each day has created a profound chemistry between the band members that truly shines through in the live setting. Tucker McClung is a powerful commander of the bass who never shies away from applying the melodic nature of the instrument all the while leading the show with compelling vocals. Michael Wood, with his tight and jazzy drum beats, works tirelessly to keep the band on track through intricate tempo changes and wide-open space. Patrick Harvey’s dominating guitar shred is what completes the band’s sound and often drives them to take the jams into outer space. The songs are written by all members of the band which adds yet another element of diversity to the end product. With humorous, relatable, and illustrative lyrics, Cycles reaches out and touches their audience in a way that produces a feeling of community.
Throughout the last year, Cycles has picked up some serious steam around Colorado. Every show Cycles plays garners new fans. In January of 2016, the band released their first EP, “Loads Of Fun” which showcases their one-of-a-kind sound. This summer will see Cycles embark on their first nation-wide tour. With runs of shows ranging from Chicago to Portland, the rest of the country will soon get to experience first-hand what all their friends have been talking about.
