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; 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...”
The Burroughs
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.
