Fox Street Allstars
Soul / Funk / Rock & Roll
In late 2007, in a dark little club that lies in the shadows of Denver's Coors Field, an impromptu gig gave birth to one of Denver's most innovative up and coming bands. It was an important moment for drummer Eric Low and guitarist James Dumm as it was the night that the Fox Street All Stars were born. Childhood friends, Low and Dumm have played in bands together since they were in middle school; but after that gig at Herb’s, the two saw a blueprint for a future of working and playing together. It didn't take long before they recruited Dumm's college buddy, Jonathan "Skippy" Huvard to bring his soulful, whiskey soaked vocals and frenetic stage presence into the fold and with the release of their blistering debut, Welcome to Mighty Pleasin’, the band has captured the raw energy of their live show for the world to hear.
“We strive to make people feel as if they are a part of the show, a piece of the action, not just watching a concert," Huvard said. "I want the audience to escape from the worries and pressures of life and to set themselves free of all burden; to reach a point of pure joy and elation, and to dance their asses off."
