Doors: 5:00 pm / Show: 5:00 pm

The Holler! - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
The Holler! entertains with a Bluegrassy sound, Rock n' Roll personality and passionate vocals delivered with mountain top exclamation. Mandolin obsessed songsmith Michael Kirkpatrick, the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour, has a voice that resonates with evangelical theatrics and gratitude. With Brad Poto on Bass, Peter Knudson on Drums, and Brian Adams on Guitar, this formidable quartet will satisfy your sonic wanderlust for new Americana. The band describes their sound as "folk music with no boundaries", while fans simply refer to The Holler!'s feel as "Folkadelic." Their repertoire artistically celebrates reverence for nature, the exploration of human consciousness, and their passion for festive community gatherings while echoing the Colorado landscape The Holler! calls home.
Qbala - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
You Get More Love When You Givin It Back! Thats what I live by. I love #local #hiphop and #music. Dominic Deadbeat and myself have been rocking sets together since 2005 and will probably never quit. Make sure you save the website, it will be available shortly and you will be able to stay up on current shows and news!
The Burroughs - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Burroughs
The Burroughs are Johnny Burroughs, Brian Claxton, Caleb Burroughs, Sean Hagemeister, Mary Claxton, Alec Bell, Hayden Farr, Jeremy Fallis, and Briana Harris.

As a 9 piece Funk and Soul band from Northern Colorado, The Burroughs present a live performance you won't soon forget. By combining modern influences, along with roots hailing to the soul revue of old, influences such as Jr. Walker, Sam & Dave, Etta James, Otis Redding, and Ray Charles, The Burroughs are a musical powerhouse like nothing you've ever heard or seen.

In their short existence The Burroughs have left their mark on the Norther Colorado music scene. They've had the honor of playing prolific Colorado venues such as The Aggie in Fort Collins and The Marquis in Denver, as wells playing in front of thousands at events such as Greeley's Bloc Party and Fort Collins' New West Fest. The band has been asked to open for national touring acts as well as performing headlining shows at local venues. The Burroughs pride themselves in performance experience, creating live shows that are unique and original, never the same as the last, and always an experience from start to finish.

December of 2013 saw huge achievement for The Burroughs when they won the peer and judge vote and were awarded the winner of the 2013 Bandwagon Magazine Battle Of The Bands. The Burroughs used the money awarded for the competition to jump in the studio and record their much anticipated 4-track EP, releasing summer 2014.

Front man Johnny Burroughs presents a live show likening to a modern James Brown. However, Johnny will be constantly competing for your attention with an energetic and lively horn section, tight guitarists, and a drummer with a back beat wider and stronger than the Mississippi.Bring the Burroughs to a town near you, or catch them at your local venue, this is not an act you will want to miss.
