Good Touch, Part & Parcel, and Amoramora help welcome the debut and naming of Pearl's new venue centered around bringing Denver fresh and funky live music!
The Denver-based quartet, Good Touch, comprised of Alex Newton (guitar/vocals), Tyler Hobbs (drums/vocal), Joe Humphrey's (keys) and Adam Sangiolo (bass) have been creating a powerful sound based around thoughtful and heartfelt song writing, and deep grooves that move fans. Blending the sounds of rock, funk, psychedelia, bluegrass, and jazz to create their signature sound of funk 'n' roll, Good Touch's sound comes through as mature and powerful.
Through song and set diversity Good Touch is always pushing their sets further. Striving to keep fans on their toes the band crafts setlists that are never the same and designed to move fans. Each member of the band brings a different skill set to the groups diverse sound further deepening the groups mature sound. Joe Humphrey's is a master of the keyboards. Having been well-versed in jazz he has the knowledge and intuition that gives him complete freedom over his instrument. Yet, it is his southern roots that really shine through in the band bringing out sounds of ragtime and parlor room piano playing. Tyler Hobbs is the groups rhythm machine finding tasteful, yet groove oriented playing to push the band forward moving through the sonic landscape. Couple with his powerful drumming Tyler's vocals brings a level of balance within the bands sound that really grab listeners ear. Alex Newton's precise and melodic guitar playing, and meaningful, yet, playful songwriting brings the bands full picture together. Through many hours spent on his instrument he has become a forced to be reckoned with having player with many staples of the Denver music scene.
