Zolopht
Zolopht
Established in 2009, Zolopht has become a premier act in the Colorado music scene. Loosely described as psychedelic reggae-rock, Zolopht has an entirely unique sound that is as catchy as it is progressive. Lovingly crafted music and rigorous touring has provided the band diehard fans around the country and beyond. Zolopht has shared the stage with artists such as: The Wailers, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Dirty Heads, Jeff Coffin, Sam Bush, and Eric Krasno. With two full-length studio efforts (pH-Balanced/Flexor*) under their belt and a third on the way, Zolopht has gained an unstoppable momentum
Williams Brothers Band
Williams Brothers Band
After 10 years as one of the foremost & founding members of the "jamband" scene in northern California, THE WILLIAMS BROTHERS BAND moved to Colorado in 2000 and have established themselves as the anchor of the music scene in Western Colorado. TWBB is the most successful band in the region & not only headlines the region's top venues & festivals successfully tours all over the western United States but are the most requested direct support act to play with national acts as well. Their hit single, "CIRCLES" was nominated for a 2008 Golden Kayak Award by the International Academy Of Independent Artists for best Rock Song, and is still in regular rotation on most Colorado radio stations. TWBB hit #1 on the mp3.com Blues charts twice with JOHNNY THE SQUIRREL, & DEEP ELEM BLUES. Their new album "LIVE AT THE MESA THEATER" was released April 2014 and is all original & multi-genre. The first single GET ME DOWN immediately hit #5 on the Soundclick Americana Charts while the backing track CHINAMAN BLUES was the #2 song on podcasts world-wide for the month of April 2014. The album placed 3 songs simultaneously on Soundclick's top 20 April 2014 Blues Rock Charts as well.
JAMES WILLIAMS vocals are inspired by the grit of JIM MORRISON, the soul of OTIS REDDING and the personal experience of JERRY GARCIA. PHILLIP WILLIAMS plays lead guitar with a deep blues style that is noticeably influenced by JIMI HENDRIX, STEVIE RAY VAUGHN & DUANE ALLMAN. Whether solo, together as "ACOUSTIC WB" or with their back-up group THE HOMEGROWN BOOGIE BAND, WILLIAMS BROTHERS shows are always full of surprises & special guests. it is never the same show twice

Danny Hutton (3 Dog Night); "You guys are good, really good"
Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon); "How about those Williams Brothers, thats some good stuff"
GJ Free Press Aug 2005; "That has Operations Manager Clara Ward feeling pretty confident about the Williams Brothers Band performance scheduled for Friday at the gardens, considering they were the biggest draw of last summer’s concert series. “They brought in the most people last year so we thought we’d better have them back,” Ward said. “They were a lot of fun.”"
