Dead Floyd
Dead Floyd
Dead Floyd is a celebration of the music of two of rock and roll's greatest bands, The Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd, mashed together into one high-energy, unpredictable show. Drawing from both extensive catalogs of music, the Dead Floyd performances include early rarities to modern classics and everything in between. The love of the music of both bands inspires Dead Floyd to uniquely interpret the songs in a way that allows the music to timelessly live on and the legacy of both bands to stay alive to the next generation of fans. The excitement, creativity, and improvisation that went into both bands live shows of so many years is brought back for old and new fans to enjoy today.

Because the number of songs available from both bands is so large, the question that is heard at every Dead Floyd show is "What will they play next?" The unpredictability of the set list and the modern translation of classic, beloved songs bring an element of surprise to every Dead Floyd show. That is what has kept fans captivated and why their legacy as a tribute band continues to grow.

Dead Floyd is based out of Fort Collins, Colorado and, since forming in summer 2009, they have performed at renowned venues such as The Fox Theatre, The Aggie Theatre, Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Owsleys, Quixotes, Ullr's Tavern, and more. To date, they have headlined every show they have played.

The members of the band draw on their roots in jazz, funk, and rock to bring a high level of musicianship to the music and close attention to detail. The band is made up of Charlie Humphreys (guitar, vocals), Josh Miller (bass, vocals), Stu Crair (drums, vocals), and Matt Goldberg (keys, synth). This group of players has combined to perform over 1000 shows across the country in various original projects including The Grippe, Hot Gazpacho, The Maji, Wooleye, Holy Moses and the High Rollers, Orooni, and many more.

The audience response to Dead Floyd has been overwhelming for everyone involved and the fans' love of the music pushes this project to new heights. Come to the next show and find out why…
Tallgrass
Tallgrass
Raised by wolves, taught by squirrels, enemy of the owl - Tallgrass sings songs of happiness and sorrow. This trio from Iowa City brings gravel road vocals, quick-picked guitar, and a rhythm section with stomping ground sound.
Brothers Adam and Austin Morford formed Tallgrass with Matt Skinner in May of 2011, after the three friends played together for nearly a decade as members of the Jensen Connection and the Gglitch. Influenced by old-timey sounds while digging through new-timey notes, Tallgrass writes and performs homemade auditory originals. Three-part harmonies with drums, bass, guitars, and banjos sit on music's front porch, eager to play. May all the wrong notes be right.
Their first album, God, Sin, Whiskey, and Women, was released in the summer of 2012 and is available on Itunes and Amazon.com. Their next album, a double-disc called Roots and Boots, is in the works. In the past year they've opened for President Obama in Iowa City and shared the main stage with Melissa Etheridge and Sublime with Rome at the Saturday in the Park music festival in Sioux City, Iowa.
