Noon – Zephyr Jazz Trio
“Rob Teegarden on guitar, Kent Davidson on bass and Michael Haynes on drums. Sauced with Latin and a little funk and finding inspiration in music from Pat Metheny to John Coltrane, this trio performs their unique versions of contemporary jazz, original scores and even an occasional jazz standard thrown into the mix. ”

Blue Recluse is a five piece power blues band. They play a wide range of blues, rhythm and blues, and country blues from the ‘40s to the present day. Powerful, sultry vocals in combination with a hard-groovin’ rhythm section and classic electric blues guitar and keys makes this band a blues lover’s dream.

The Otone Brass Band has been bringing the New Orleans brass band sound to the Rockies for almost 20 years. Their unique blend of original music, high energy, and second line grooves has left audiences so full they have to let out their belt.
