Enjoy patio beers and bluegrass at City Star Brewing. The Road West grew out of the musical friendship of Katy Buckbee (fiddle), Dave Goldhammer (guitar), and Steve Remmert (mandolin). The Colorado trio’s music borrows styles from Americana, folk and bluegrass to create a sound that feels timeless and familiar, yet all their own. Expect to hear a mix of well-crafted originals and unique interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs and instrumentals.

Steeped in tradition, The Stanleytones Bluegrass Band was formed in 1999. The band was named after the Stanley Brothers, Ralph and Carter, who played throughout the 50’s until Carter’s death in 1966.
Sticking to a sound reminiscent of the old days and singing around a single mic, their audience will be treated to original songs and timeless classics. Their passion for bluegrass is evident in their sound – hard drivin’ and traditional, the way it was meant to be!

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!

Wood Belly blends traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and whether you’re spinning your partner around or hanging on every word, the result is the same. You’re left smiling and wanting more. 2018 has been an exciting year as the group released their debut album, “Solid Ground” and won the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition.
Wood Belly was born when Chris Weist (Mandolin) met Craig Patterson (Guitar) and Chris Zink (Dobro) at the Rockygrass Festival in 2015. Within a year, they had teamed up with Aaron McCloskey (Banjo) and Taylor Shuck (Bass) and the music immediately fell into place. Since then the band has played at an ever-expanding list of great venues including the Mishawaka amphitheater, the Fox Theater (Boulder), and Cervantes (Denver). Their festival resume includes the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rapidgrass, the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, the Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival, The Wyoming State Bluegrass and BBQ festival, Snowygrass, Grapes and Grass, and more.

His talents as a singer, mandolin player and songwriter are becoming recognized throughout the national community and after spending time as a central figure in New York’s exploding scene as a member of Six Deadly Venoms, whose credits include; finalist 2009 Telluride band contest, finalist 2009 Rockygrass band contest, Finalist 2012 Freshgrass band contest, and as host of what has become one of the best weekly picking sessions in the country, The Monas’ Monday Night Bluegrass Session, Elio moved to Colorado in January 2016, where he is finishing up and soon to release a new solo album; After The Fall. The record is Co-produced by IBMA award winning mandolinist Matt Flinner and has a roster of players including Ross Martin, Ryan Cavanaugh, Billy Cardine, James Genus, Brittany Haas and Jordan Tice. The album highlights Elio’s soulful voice and his ability to infuse his many musical influences into creatively relevant lyrics and melodies based in a good ol’ bluegrass setting…… sort of. There are string quartets, R n B-ish backup vocals and dynamic arrangements that are groovy and emotional. Not to mention a S#*! ton of seriously amazing playing.
