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!

Pamela Machala

806 726 City Star Brewing

Singer/songwriter Pamela Machala (“MOCK-uh-luh”) creates a delicious style of indie piano pop, influenced by her love of jazz and R&B. Her smooth, smoky voice and impressive piano chops recall the timeless pop sensibilities of Carole King, the subtle fusion of Norah Jones, and the eclectic lyricism of Regina Spektor. Her newest album, When I Get Home, was released in June 2015. BolderBeat says, “The grand takeaway from When I Get Home is this: Pamela Machala is a big, fresh talent to keep an eye on. Her musicality is as user-friendly as it is intricate, and Machala’s vocal performances are revelatory…It’s that catchy; it’s that well executed by Machala, who may be a transcendent talent; and it’s that well produced.” American Songwriter Magazine awarded Machala an Honorable Mention in their July/August 2018 Lyric Contest for her original song “Cardboard Cutout.”

Riley Ann and Sean Bennight are both active in their artistic communities through performing, teaching, and humanitarian arts initiatives. Their paths crossed officially onstage with ‘Mad Dog Blues’. Following their first performance together it was clear their musical styles were well aligned.  Pulling from a diverse range of styles, they deliver an emotive and unparalleled multi-instrumental experience. Featuring sweet harmonies over originals and Old-time favorites, the duo sounds reminiscent of Mandolin Orange, Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, and The Honey Dewdrops.

Ryan Dart

750 501 City Star Brewing

Farmer.  Father.  Musician.  Painter.

Ryan Dart’s music encompasses the worlds that he lives in.  You can’t sing about needing rain, unless you really know what it means to need rain.  The new album, Drifters Heart, showcases his earnest and heartfelt songwriting, stripped down to its core and presented honestly.  Recorded in Austin, TX and Boulder, CO, the album is a departure from some of Ryan’s earlier, more rock leaning offerings.  Yet, it still retains all of the qualities common throughout Ryan’s music – genuine lyrics, vivid imagery, and an authentic take on American music.

Emily Barnes

960 960 City Star Brewing

“Emily Barnes is more than just a musician; she is a storyteller that sets the lives of her characters to music. Her sophomore release ‘Let in the Light’ should be both required reading and listening for anyone who feels or has felt fractured by life ”
— Divide and Conquer

Tucked away in a town so tiny it isn’t found on most maps, singer-songwriter Emily Barnes can be found sitting on the stone steps of her 200 year old home stitching together the latest melody from the fabric of her mind. That is on the rare occasion she is home. For the past few years, Emily has been tirelessly trekking down the open road playing venues of all shapes and sizes stopping listeners dead in their tracks with a voice that cuts to the bone and songs that pull on the heart strings.

Now a nationally touring artist, Barnes continues to build a grassroots following from city to small town, one new believer at a time. Her Sophomore album ‘Let in the Light’ was released on March 10th 2017 and has been taking listeners through the nostalgia of finding oneself after the inevitable darkness seeps in. It is honest, it is raw, and as quirky as the show you are likely to experience. With an assortment of “found” instruments, lo-fi birds, pots and pans, this album paints a picture from start to finish.

There is a feeling one gets when witnessing something authentic and rare, and that aura permeates the room at an Emily Barnes show.
