Amoramora
Amoramora
Amoramora is a traveling, working, multipurpose rock and jazz fusion quartet from Boulder, Colorado. With members from Chicago, Cleveland, Washington D.C., and Boulder, the band formed after crossing paths in 2015 and has been performing, as well as expanding their extensive catalog with original material ever since. After gaining traction amongst the legendary students at the University of Colorado, the group of composers and multi-instrumentalists quickly jumped from packed house parties, to small bars, and then to bigger stages. An Amoramora experience is an eclectic mix of improvisational musical gumbo, blending and stirring together integral aspects of Progressive Funk, Psychedelic Rock, African High Life, Jazz, Bluegrass, and Soul. Astronomic compositions take the listener on an engaging journey while whimsical and captivating lyrics fuel the fire of musical imagery. The instrumentation of guitar, bass, percussion, trumpet, and EWI mixed in with vocal harmonies add up to truly original and endless musical possibilities – and have been proven to create large dance parties in cities like Denver, Boulder, Chicago, Breckenridge, Vail, Crested Butte, Telluride, Steamboat Springs, Fort Collins, Durango, Nederland, and more.
Home Fried Boogaloo
Home Fried Boogaloo
Home Fried Boogaloo serves up funk flavored with New Orleans Swamp, Jazz, Soul, R&B, Boogaloo, and Go Go from their home base in Fort Collins, Colorado. Since 2014 the band has played some of Northern Colorado’s premier venues including the Aggie Theatre, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Hodi’s Half Note, and the Mishawaka Amphitheatre. The group includes Jason Russell on Bass/Vocals, Dale Kern on Guitar/Vocals, Scott Gaensslen on Drums, Ben Myers on Trumpet, Annie Sklar on Tenor Sax/Vocals, Ryan Pontillas on Keys, and Anna Hodshire on Baritone Sax/Flute.

Heavily influenced by groove icons The Meters, Lettuce, Galactic, and The Greyboy Allstars, Home Fried also draws inspiration from jazz, soul, and R&B of the late 60s and early 70s. As long as it’s got funk and rhythm, Home Fried Boogaloo will show you that too many chefs in the kitchen can be a good thing. Come taste what’s cooking!
Bamboozle
Bamboozle
Bamboozle has appeared to carry the burning, stinking torch of funk deep into the dark night of your soul.

Drawing influences from the same communal improvisational gestalt that fueled the best groups of the 60's counterculture as much as from the explosion of the jazz/funk mastery of the 70's, Bamboozle will tickle your ears and your heart (and hopefully your spirit) into fits of cosmic laughter and get your feet moving.

Bamboozle. The band you never knew you wanted but always knew you needed.
