The Swashbuckling Doctors
The Swashbuckling Doctors
Swashbuckling Doctors are a ska group that was started in late 2010. We appeal to almost all age groups and we fly magical unicorns through space while wielding light up swords. We fight all that is terrible music and help those in need with our benefit concerts of macho-ness. We just eat, sleep, play ska, and go on late night grocery store runs.
12 Cents For Marvin
12 Cents For Marvin
No stage can contain the energy of 12 Cents for Marvin and audiences would have it no other way. Formed in their college days over 15 years ago, the band has grown as individuals and musicians. Ska/reggae/rock is a quick but incomplete way to describe the 12 Cents sound. It must be experienced to be understood. The band named itself after meeting Marvin, a colorful street character panhandling and following a mathematical formula requiring him to receive twelve cents per person he met.

Since then, 12 Cents has been voted Best Band in the region multiple years in a row. Recognition continued when the band garnered first place in Colorado's Scene Magazine's Battle of the Bands. Gaining this recognition early in the band's career laid a solid foundation for the independent nature of all present and future endeavors. This is exemplified by radio play for multiple 12 Cents' songs along the Colorado Front Range by both independent and corporate radio stations.
The Couch Bombs
The Couch Bombs emerged after the ending of the ska band, Hatrick Penry. The bassist/guitarist Ian Rosenstein was looking to begin a new project during June of 2013 when he met up with his longtime friend Paul Fatur. They had been in previous bands together and Ian knew he needed a bass player. Ian called up Jake Johnson, former band mate of Hatrick Penry to play bass. Drummer Mason Kolodziej joined the band in late February 2014 and gives the band its music an aggressive and dynamic quality. The sound of The Couch Bombs is driving, energized and authentic punk rock.

The music brings a new perspective and originality to the deifying genre of punk.
