Liver Down by the River
Liver Down The River is a six-piece psychedelic, funky jam-grass group from the beautiful mountains of Durango, CO. For 5 years, the band has worked to make a mark in both the bluegrass and jam band scenes. Their unique sound has caught the public's attention, leading the band to share the stage with The Infamous Stringdusters, Railroad Earth, The New Mastersounds, and Poor Man’s Whiskey to name a few.
The band started in 2012, and has worked ever since to write, record, and perform the music that they love which has been dubbed “Funkadeligrass”. Now a touring act, LDTR strives to bring their tight, professional sound across the nation. With high energy, roller-coaster dynamics, and “jams that will have you stripping the finish off the dance floor,” it’s safe to say that LDTR brings the party.
Trout Steak revival
Ever since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, Trout Steak Revival has quickly become a quintessential Colorado band. The band won an Emmy Award for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS. They’ve collaborated with school children in mentoring programs in Denver and Steamboat Springs. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Most recently, Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band, and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
