It’s the year of The Rat! The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.

The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi (子) and the midnight hours. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children.

The Seers

640 675 City Star Brewing

The Seers, an experimental folk-rock duo from Fort Collins, CO, have transformed their shared passion for great songs into a walking, talking, modern-day jukebox of musical versatility. With a “stunning repertoire” of over 700 covers and 100 originals spanning from alternative rock to Americana country, the Seers deliver sing-along performances that bring people closer together.

As a duo, three-piece, four-piece, and five-piece band, Seers perform at regional festivals (SXSW 2015 Colorado Music Showcase), weddings (in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado), private events, restaurants, bars, breweries, memorials, markets, and more. With over fifteen years of collaboration, it easy to see why they’re in high regional demand: they love to play.

As prolific songwriters and aspiring recording artists, Collins and Waters have been recording and releasing albums as The Seers since 2010. Their first was an underground, stream-of-consciousness EP titled “Universal Tree.” Two eclectic rock albums followed: “The Seers” (2013) and “Cellophane Eyes” (2014). In 2016, in collaboration with Danny Kalb (Beck, Ben Harper, and Foster the People), The Seers released the indie folk EP “Signals” to critical acclaim. Their fourth release, the full-length “Better Days” is out May 13th, 2017

Jon Garson and Late For Supper

960 719 City Star Brewing
Jon Garson and Late for Supper evolved out of a three year Friday night jam which took place at Jon’s Boulder home called POS (pickin on the strings) around 2014. Jon had the vision for LFS based on what he calls a “fluid band model,” a couple of core members joined by a changing blend of other musicians. Fronted by Jon Garson on upright bass, guitar, and vocals, Late for Supper draws from a who’s who of Colorado roots music bands. Members of The Railsplitters, Masontown, Monocle Band, Road West, Halden Wofford & the Hi-Beams, The Western Flyers, Flat Five, The Matt Flinner Trio, are frequent staples of LFS gigs.
LFS is unique. It combines high level musicianship and high degree of fun, with an uncomplicated and low stress dynamic. LFS plays local venues, with front man Jon Garson also handling the bookings, sound equipment and other details. Many of these folks have played multiple LFS shows over the years in addition to holding their primary musical commitments, teaching music, and touring with their bands nationally and internationally. But above all they are friends, some for many years. Some have been in bands together. When their schedules allow, these excellent folks may take a Late for Supper gig. They embrace the opportunity to perform with pals they haven’t gigged with for some time, to connect in the way they love, through music, on stage together and, of course, in front of a appreciative audience.
Late for Supper plays locally around the Front Range and Denver and can be called upon for all types of events. From 3 to 5 pieces, you’ll hear LFS’s great harmonies, smooth licks and see their heartfelt camaraderie always!

Logan Thomas

791 1024 City Star Brewing

Logan Thomas is a singer-songwriter from Savannah, Georgia. Often compared to a young John Mayer, his music combines catchy melodies with soulful guitar playing. Logan’s goal as an artist is to merge the authenticity of blues and soul music with today’s modern production techniques. As a lover of all genres, the most important thing to him is that his music inspires people.

Logan’s life has revolved around music since the young age of 12 years old. When he walked into his first guitar lesson, he was asked why he wanted to learn guitar – Logan’s response? “I want to be on the cover of a magazine!” While his attitude towards music has evolved since those early years, Logan has retained his passion for creating music that people love.

After spending his teenage years playing in various bands, Logan realized that songwriting was his true passion. He began performing as a solo artist in 2018, playing more than 50 shows across the southeast while honing his abilities as a songwriter and a performer. Logan is currently based in northern Colorado, performing regularly in the area while working on recording new music.

His plans for the future include a debut EP to be released in October, as well as a nationwide tour to support the EP. Logan’s dedication to music is lifelong, so his career is only just beginning. With passion and drive matched by few others, Logan Thomas is a young artist worth paying attention to.

Jeremy Mohney Trio

Jeremy Mohney Swing Trio

640 675 City Star Brewing

Jeremy Mohney is swing, simply put. Nearly 90 years late to the game, he’s still swinging hard for dancers with his band, sax, singing voice and original compositions that all sound straight out of 1939. Each show is fresh and will leave you wondering what’s gonna happen next. All you’re sure of is that it will be solid in the groove.

As entertaining as he sounds, Mohney has proven it countless times. At home in CO at venues like Dazzle or the Mercury Cafe, he kills, as well as on his frequent tours which take him and his band all over the US. He recently came out with two digital albums, “Live at the Mercury Cafe” and “KGNU Air Checks”. They’re both available on all major sites, like iTunes/Apple Music and Spotify. Jeremy’s also starting a podcast which will feature he and his band’s playing, his original compositions, guests to play, sing, make us laugh and more.

Inspired by the home of our brewery, Jeremy composed “The Berthoud Bump”: click to listen.
