Eufórquestra
Eufórquestra
Eufórquestra (pronounced yoo-FOHR-keh-struh, think euphoria+orchestra) is energy and rhythm personified. An ever-evolving sound that has been influenced by music from all over the world with an emphasis on funk, pocket and groove. For over a decade the band has been igniting dance floors across the country, blending the roots of funk, soul, afrobeat, reggae and dub to create a sound that “explodes, dances and melts in your ear with sheer bliss” (Chris M. Slawecki; AllAboutJazz.com).

Eufórquestra’s fifth full-length record, FIRE, was produced by Kyle Hollingsworth (of The String Cheese Incident) and captures the passion and musical maturing of these road warriors. Over the course of 14 tracks, the band takes you on an hour-long adventure that will touch your heart and mind, and keep your fingers and toes tapping. A handful of special guests, including Elliot Martin (John Brown’s Body), Gabriel Mervine and Kim Dawson (The Motet) and Mr. Hollingsworth himself, put their own touches on the band’s already cohesive sound that is “tight and engineered to a fine, funky precision.” (Jeremy Frazier; Chicago Jam Scene) The result is a record that is distinctly modern, maintaining one foot in the future and firmly planting in the musical roots traditions of the past.

With almost 1,000 shows under their belt, Eufórquestra shows no sign of stopping. A perpetually heavy tour schedule keeps the band and fans happy, as performing live in front of an audience has always been the band’s top priority. As noted in a live show review by Grateful Web, “...the boys seem to play like the apocalypse will happen at any second and they want to die doing what they do best...”
Mama Magnolia
Mama Magnolia
Mama Magnolia is your guide through a groovy and dangerous musical landscape. Their sound pushes musical boundaries while capturing the ear, touching the soul and moving the body. Their powerful blend of groovy rhythms, explosive horn lines, captivating melodies and soulful lyrics will invite you to want more. With a love of shifting meters, polyrhythmic structure, evolving harmonies and complex dynamic shape, they let the music guide them to create danceable and undeniably deep music that is tasty soul candy to those who hear it.

This crew from Denver, CO pulls inspiration from each of their personal genre influences and brings it to the table to create the intertwining and captivating sound that they call home. Soul, rock, jazz, hip-hop, classical - it’s in there somewhere. Mama Magnolia finds a way to sneak it in. They want to create music to make your body move and your brain think, but mostly, they want to give you the gift of music. Every show, every event, every gathering of any kind is a family gathering with Mama Magnolia - and the kitchen is full of music, dancing, singing and making noise from the rooftops!

The majority of Mama Magnolia met in music school and played in a variety of musical settings - from big bands to Indian dance class. Then singer, Megan Letts, brought forth the proposition of going steady with this stellar group of humans and musicians. "There was something magical about when the six of us plugged in and played for the first time. No. It was just magic," recalls Megan. And they took that magic and ran!
Whiskey Autumn
Whiskey Autumn
Whiskey Autumn is an indie pop rock band from Boulder, CO. Their new EP, Ice Cream In The Sun, showcases the band expanding upon the '60s pop stylings of their previous work with synths, hip-hop beats, and electronic elements in what is their most confident release yet.

Founded by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Greg Laut, Whiskey Autumn began as a solo project before recruiting bassist Jason Paton and drummer Matty Schelling into the fold. The revamped lineup delved into new influences ranging from 1960's pop and soul to 1990's R&B and rock. The release of their synth pop record, Ice Cream In the Sun, has seen the band touring heavily in their trusty van named Bruce, bringing their high energy live show to audiences across the US.

Whiskey Autumn is currently in the studio working on a new record for a spring 2018 release and is diving into the year with an extensive national touring schedule.
