TooMAS
With early roots in the art of vinyl, Mas’ style gravitates to House, Techno, TechHouse, Classic Trance bangers, modern pop EDM tracks, and even the occasional throwback to remixed classics…Is it too much for one DJ…nope, it’s TooMAS!


NeitSwetz
Night sweats are repeated episodes of very heavy sweating, heavy enough to soak your night clothes. They are caused by an underlying condition. NeitSwetz is that condition. Fresh off his US manifest destiny tour, NeitSwetz will induce a prog house fever that will have you checking your skin for bleeps and bloops.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

“The music that my father David Grisman and his close friend, Jerry Garcia, made in the early 90s (in the house that I grew up in) is not only some of the most timeless acoustic music ever recorded, it also triggers my oldest and fondest musical memories. What I find most inspiring about this material is the way their camaraderie and their love and joy for the music, simply oozes out of each recording. It is also impressive how deeply they get beneath their favorite songs—whether they are originals, covers or traditional/old time tunes—and how expertly that material was curated.


My goal in starting Sam Grisman Project is to build a platform for my friends and me to showcase our genuine passion and appreciation for the legacy of Dawg and Jerry’s music. By playing some of their beloved repertoire and sharing the original music that our own collective has to offer, we will also show the impact that this music has had on our own individual  musical voices. Ultimately, there is nothing that makes me happier than playing great songs with my best friends and my hope is to share that happiness with audiences all over!”

"Extra Gold will take you on a trip through time to when Denver was just a small mining

town. The group’s old-timey sound just makes you want to get up and stomp your boots and

spin your partner around and around on the dance floor. Hot off their debut EP, Extra Gold

harkens back to Denver’s roots to give listeners a wild west experience no matter where they

might be when they hear this magnificently fun band." - 303 Magazine

 

Fronted by Kansas City native Evan Holm, Extra Gold released their acclaimed debut

record “High & Lonesome” in 2018 and released the single “What It’s Like” in 2020. They

are back in the studio recording their much anticipated follow up LP to be released in late

2022 and are bound to take the festival circuit by storm.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Electric Kif are a Miami-based power quartet that explore the boundaries between rock, jazz fusion and electronic drum & bass.


Made up of bassist Rodrigo Zambrano, keyboardist Jason Matthews, drummer Armando Lopez and guitarist Eric Escanes, Electric Kif formed as an outlet for the musicians to stretch out and be themselves between recording sessions and touring with other artists.  They started played monthly at a tiny place called Lagniappe, which became their home-base in Miami.  These nights became the time when the band would dive in to their own musicality, and chemistry was undeniable.  The quartet clicked and there was no stopping them.  On any given month you could witness fantastic musicianship, mind blowing grooves, and the occasional guest appearance from a national touring artist who knew if they showed up they would be challenged and delighted to play with these cats.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Sun JR. 


The bastard son of a psychedelic-fueled desert orgy that no one will claim and resembles all who were there, including The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, The Band, and The Grateful Dead.  Sun Jr. was raised in the shadows of their contemporaries, other bastard sons, and kindred cousins born from the same lineage, like My Morning Jacket, Local Natives, Alabama Shakes, Leftover Salmon, Lord Huron, Father John Misty, and Wilco. Influenced by the sounds of a diverse family tree, the real magic is in their ability to seamlessly implement new sounds from within their heritage. Never allowing the song structure to harness the impulse of the moment, Sun Jr. creates a wall of sound through their unique tapestry of folk, western, and rock n' roll sounds, phasered, and melded through swirling psychedelic effects and effortlessly slipping in and out of ethereal space ballads, dark surf swings, and swampy foot-stomping jams.


 


SUN JR. IS JIM HEEKIN - GUITAR/VOX, MATT KUBIS - BANJO/VOX, JEREMIAH STREETS - KEYS/BASS, JON SCHIMEK - PEDAL STEEL/GUITAR, NOD NORKUS - DRUMS

The Samples
Original Samples - Best known for his high voice, unique guitar playing and songwriting (“Nature”, “Feel Us Shaking”, “Did You Ever Look So Nice”) rock, reggae and folk singer/songwriter Sean Kelly front man for The samples was born February 7, 1965 in Norwalk, Connecticut. The son of a WW2 veteran and a mom who worked construction to put food on the table, Kelly grew up in Vermont. While attending only one year of high school, he began playing guitar and composing his own songs. After moving to Colorado in 1987 to start a band, Kelly became a fixture on local club stages as the front man for The Samples, playing original songs with a variety of rock, reggae and folk. When not touring with The Samples, he enjoys playing his songs acoustically. The Samples are currently recording their 20th album, Indian Summer, to be released later this year. Kelly’s songs have been featured in Perks of Being a Wallflower and more recently in television’s Younger and in ads for MSNBC’s midterm election coverage.

Velvet Elk Lounge was born from the desire to create a small, funky, live music venue in Boulder where you can get a proper cocktail and listen to great, local music. When there is not a live band, check the calendar for dj events, open mic nights, dance your pants off parties, and a host of other happenings. This space has been home to many Boulder businesses including a Cadillac dealership, a bowling alley, a long standing travel agency and now a palace of music and fun. Check the calendar, check the mirror, check yourself.... hope to see you soon.
