All participating bands get paid!!! Along with the fans having a vote. Remember each night is judged in a 3 part system. Half the points come from each bands draw(either the color coded Tix or full paid at door or in advance and make sure they know who your there to see !:)), half comes from a panel of industry professionals. Also the crowd is one part of the judging panel so make sure you stick around tell the end of the show to scream your vote to the DB meter. All tie breakers are decided by the panel. Partners with: Red Rocks Parks & Amphitheater, The Decibel Garden, Sky Theory Studio, Westword, Strainwise, OmTown Threads, and Budweiser **WE'S US** We's Us may be know to "pack the most possible over-the-top guitars solos ever into a single set." The band's heavy-alternative-rock sound is never lacking energy or content. It is heavy without dwelling on cliche'd power chords, but melodic without being too "jazzy". We's Us reserves the right to delve into musical explorations at any point in any of their songs. If they do that, they promise to rock. We's Us was formed from the melting pot that is the Denver music scene. Started by Michael "Weeze" Dawald, the members of We's Us have played together under many different names and decided to create something new. All of the members come from wide-ranging musical backgrounds and geographic regions. Michael "Weeze" Dawald - Guitar/Vox, Blake Manion - Drums, Chris Crantz - Bass. All members of We's Us enjoy long walks on the beach. http://www.reverbnation.com/wesus https://www.facebook.com/wesusband **ROBERT HARRISON AND THE OUTSIDERS** Moore: Jarvenin: Snook: Born in St. Louis, MO moved to Denver in the fall of 1999. survived Y2K and dedicated himself to music ever since. iin the beginning of 2011 Adam met Adam. being the wild Animal drummer he is, Snook really had to perfect his craft and help work with Moore. and both being such amateur musicians they really grew together over the months as musicians, human beings, and friends. (Blues Rock)We're just a few guys making music. in the hopes of being heard. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Robert-Harrison-The-Outsiders/159170147533337 http://www.reverbnation.com/robertharrisonandtheoutsiders **MATT NASI BAND** Born of equal parts cinephiles and audiophiles, the Matt Nasi Band is a Pop Rock creation with parents stemming from Stevie Wonder to GuyRichie, and Bonnie Raitt to Brigitte Nielsen. Whether it's an acoustic Apéritif or an effect cornucopia, The Matt Nasi Band will soothe your musical pangs. This unlikely caldron began brewing after Matt Nasi made his rounds as a solo Singer/Songwriter in college and was faced with the realization of getting a real job after graduation. Little did he know that within the cubicles and staff meetings of his real jobs he would meet his band. Between an account manager, a production artist, a designer, an art director, an illustrator, and a public relations ninja, the band could assemble its own ad agency… but it won't. Instead they are focused on the infiltration through amplification and reverberation into your heart vibrations (palpitations). Their freshman full length effort "Anticiption" runs the gamut of styles from soul to synth anthems inspired by the limitless influences of the band's members. http://www.mattnasiband.com/ https://www.facebook.com/mattnasiband **FIERCE BAD RABBIT*** Indie folk-rock quartet Fierce Bad Rabbit crafts a unique soundscape that spans pop-infused tunes to gritty rock roots. Showcasing strong and innovative songwriting and poignant lyrics, FBR blends four seasoned musical talents on their latest release Maestro and the Elephant. Comprised of core members, Chris Anderson (lead vocals, guitar), from Fort Collins, CO and now residing in Boston, Alana Rolfe (viola, vocals) from Lamoni, Iowa, Max Barcelow (drums/percussion/vocals) from Edina, MN, and Dayton Hicks (bass guitar), from Dothan, Alabama, the band’s sound is reminiscent of Arcade Fire, Delta Spirit, The Shins, The National, and Wilco. FBR had a fortuitous start in early 2009. Having just returned from West Africa for a trip with his wife in the Peace Corps, Anderson had stockpiled a series of songs he wanted to record and met Rolfe and Hicks from previous bands in Fort Collins. The band formally united just days before their first show together at Surfside 7 on March 15, 2009. With the line-up on board, FBR released their first EP, Black and White EP, on June 25th, 2009 at Road 34. Generating buzz around the Colorado scene, the foursome spread their wings and began touring in October of that year through the midwest, then ventured out to the west and east coasts. Fierce Bad Rabbit has released three more albums, Spools of Thread in October 2010, Live And Learn EP in November 2011, and most recently, The Maestro and the Elephant. Fierce Bad Rabbit have revolutionized the Colorado music scene are branching out worldwide with their eclectic but accessible sound. https://www.facebook.com/fiercebadrabbitmusic http://fiercebad.com/ **THE MESSERS** The Messers - we mess.
