Kessel Run
Kessel Run
Kessel Run is a Progressive Funk band that was formed in Boulder, CO in 2016. Fusing elements of Rock, Jazz, and Progressive music over pulse-pounding Funk, Kessel Run delivers a high-energy concert experience that has something for everyone. The intricacy and digestibility of their material is matched only by their tastefulness and on-stage delivery.

Now, soaring into their third year with furious momentum, the Denver-based quintet has completed successful Southwest & Midwest regional tours, and has presented memorable performances in historic venues such as Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom & The Bluebird Theater in Denver, The Boulder Theater & The Fox Theatre in Boulder, Planet Bluegrass in Lyons, and The Belly Up in Aspen. They have shared stages with the likes of the String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band, the Motet, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Werks, and Here Come the Mummies.

With the upcoming release of their first studio album in February 2019, and a long list of exciting appearances in the Rocky Mountains and across the Midwest after the 1st of the year, 2019 promises to be a turning-point for Kessel Run and their fans.
Malai Llama
Malai Llama
Malai Llama is a Colorado-based experimental rock quartet who fearlessly creates an atmosphere of triumph and inspiration everytime they hit the stage. Improvisation manifests in a variety of forms during a Malai Llama set, as the band weaves together the benevolent jam band spirit, the technical rigor of prog-rock, and modern jazz performance.

The Malai Llama experience is marked by both freeform composition and compelling original lyrics and songwriting. They wield added strength through their ability to select potent covers like “Carry the Weight” “Foxy Lady” or “Happy Hour Hero.” By keeping everyone involved in the show, both old and new Malai Llama fans develop a community on the dancefloor. They aim to continue to foster a burgeoning community around their music that embraces all artists of the visual and performance variety.

In 2016, Malai Llama released their first full length LP ‘Out to Graze.’ The album was truly the product of the merging of each member’s musical stories and the cultivation of a sound all their own. Inspired by artists like Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and Medeski Martin & Wood, each track features dynamic song structures and lyricism meant to galvanize crowds to embody exploration and confidence. ‘Out to Graze’ was simply the springboard for the band’s songwriting, as they continue writing vigorously between gigs.

Malai Llama has taken the stage with members of String Cheese Incident, Toubab Krewe, Blues Traveler, Lotus and many other legendary acts. Recent killer performances include The Gothic Theater for a sold out show alongside the legendary George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic.

With careful energy and unmistakable passion, Malai Llama will pull the crowd into a pensive state one minute and a let-it-all-out party the next. Whether the band is shredding a metal riff, setting a funk groove, or experimenting with dance music production, Malai Llama brings the house down by bringing the spirit up.
