Wildermiss is an indie rock band. Emma Cole sings and plays synth bass, Joshua Hester plays guitar and Caleb Thoemke plays drums. They have sold out all of their hometown headlining shows since 2017 and steadily gained momentum nationwide with multiple support tours and festival spots. The band is currently working on the follow up to their quarantine singles “Supermagical” and “Italy” with plans to tour until their van dies again like it did in Michigan that one time.
The Waiting is a rock ‘n roll band from Bozeman, Montana that celebrates the music of Tom Petty. Not exactly a “cover” or “tribute” band, The Waiting is—in the spirit of The Heartbreakers—first and foremost a BAND: a motley mix of musicians and friends interpreting the songs of one of rock’s greatest songwriters and musicians, the legendary Tom Petty.
The band’s motto is “We bring the Petty to your town,” and since 2013 they’ve been doing exactly that all across the Northwest Corridor . Whether it’s one of Tom Petty’s smash hits with the Heartbreakers, a sampling from his solo albums, or even a collaboration with the Traveling Wilburys, The Waiting runs the gamut, performing each tune with undeniable, fiery live energy and a devotion to showing each person in the crowd a damn good time. We think Tom would approve!
The Waiting is David Dyas (vocals, guitar), Levi Main (vocals, guitar), Doc Wiley (bass), Rick Winking (lead guitar), Jared Stein (keyboards, vocals), and Ethan Decker (drums).
Rose’s Pawn Shop infuses their critically-acclaimed, high-energy Americana with passion, precision and poetry— forged in the sprawl of their hometown Los Angeles, interwoven with the strains and stories of life on the road. Their songs feature the folk-rock and bluegrass sounds of banjo, acoustic guitar, and fiddle, super-charged with electric guitar, thumping bass lines and driving percussion. This arsenal of sound is all held together by front-man Paul Givant’s songwriting which makes folk archetypes new and brings personal experiences to life with lyrics that are incisive, exuberant, whip-smart and heart-breaking. A devoted fanbase and critical praise has followed the evolution of the band from their first release, the rootsy, bluegrass-heavy to the break-neck rock of to 2014’s soulful (produced by Ted Hutt after his success with Old Crow Medicine Show and the Dropkick Murphys).
Float Like a Buffalo is Horn-driven Ska-funk-reggae-rock. Nods to the funk of Lettuce and The Motet, jam of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, rock of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chicago Transit Authority, soul of James Brown, & high-energy guitar licks of Jimi Hendrix all combine to make a unique sound that’s impossible not to dance to.
The band has become a regional funk sensation over the past five years, playing sold out and near-sold-out shows at major Colorado venues like Red Rocks, The Bluebird Theater, Gothic Theatre, Levitt Pavilion, and Marquis Theater – and taking the crown for Best Funk Band in Denver in Westword’s 2019 Music Awards.
Mountain-Reggae gypsy-jazz infused SOUL band, Cole & The Thornes of Bozeman Montana are an eclectic, funky group with an infectious uplifting energy. Cole’s powerful, sultry vocals and empowering lyrics are accompanied by Jazz guitar, island ukulele, and playful horn melodies. Their sound will leave you searching for that groovy soulshine they indefinitely radiate.
Led by ukulelist Miss Colita Thorne, her powerful sultry vocals and empowering lyrics are accompanied by Jordan Rodenbiker on Bass, Jesse Atkins on guitar, Alex Platt on drums, Adam Burke on auxiliary percussion and playful horn melodies by Daniel Wood on trumpet and Matthew Powell-palm on saxophone.
One listen and it’s immediately clear that The Brevet have undergone a dramatic evolution on their explosive, ambitious new album, LEGS. Synthesizing the raucous energy of their live show with sonic precision of their extensive studio history, the collection is the California five-piece’s most deeply personal and lyrically sophisticated yet, tackling perception and identity in the digital age with both subtle nuance and blunt force. The songs remain as cinematic as ever, full of rousing choruses and sing-along hooks, but they carry more weight here, propelled inexorably forward by thunderous percussion and blazing electric guitars that blend rock and roll snarl with R&B swagger.
