Liver Down the River 

High Energy Foot Stompin' Funkadeligrass out of Durango Co!
Funkadeligrass - An eclectic mix of hard driving, psycadelic bluegrass and funk music designed to rock hard and dance your pants off.
From the high mountain river-valley of Durango Colorado comes a five piece band of musicians called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots in countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since its creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. Their unique sound and high energy performances have lead them to share the stage with the likes of The Infamous Stringdusters, Railroad Earth, The New Mastersounds, and Poor Man’s Whiskey, to name a few. 
The band got their start in 2012 when Patrick Storen and Emily Winter met and started playing music together. A few common fiddle tunes and Grateful Dead numbers later, the two were ready to perform. Searching for the missing link, they enlisted the help of funk master and  bass player Derek Abt. With the addition of New Orleans native Cy Fontenot on drums and funky keys man Michael “Sweet T” Todd, the music comes to life.
The music is a blend of original and improvisational compositions that take the listener on a journey. Each member brings their own inspirations and elements to the sound. From the high peaks of bluegrass, the deepest pockets of the funk, and the outer reaches of space, a unique genre of music is created. Inspiration comes from the band’s collective adventures, love of nature, the following of the soul, and the drive to keep on moving on.
The band released their five track Liver Down The River EP on June 30th 2015. One year later on April 8th 2016, the band released their first full length album, Life You Love. On these tracks, Liver Down the River strives to capture the immense energy felt during the live shows, and to showcase each musician’s skills.  Attempting to reflect the beautiful, yet powerful and expansive essence of the Colorado country, the inspiration comes truly… from living the life you love.
 
 
Pherkad (ABQ, NM)
Psychedelic music for the soul
Pherkad is a genre bending, experimental four-piece jamband. These melodic grooves will have your feet forging a path into the unknown. Originally the brainchild of guitarist Jason Bowers and drumming lead-vocalist “Cheese”, Pherkad has grown from a duo into a four-piece jam band paving a path through the comfortable and familiar and well beyond into the sonic unknown. Talented keyboardist Zac Ramsey gets ultra-funky ticklin' the ivories every night and holding down the low end is bassist Chris “Chrispy” Patchett who also showcases his songwriting and takes lead vocals occasionally. Get ready to blast off, because Pherkad is going to take you on a jamtastic voyage with their well composed, tasteful and downright funky blend of music.
"It's like fractals for the soul". The future is bright, better bring your sunglasses.
