Electro Hip-Hop Soul duo Krooked Drivers have been captivating ears ever since the launch of their musical vision in 2011. Based out of Denver, Krooked Drivers keeps the sounds of the past alive by sampling vinyl records from past eras of time and collaging breaks and organic elements, creating an entirely new feeling and direction. Blending heavy hitting bass lines with neck breaking drum patterns, rest assured KD will take you on an emotion driven musical roller coaster ride that will leave you begging for more.

Resonant Frequency is a band of Electro-Soul and Future-Funk Producers Diamond Cuts, Lando, And Local Color. After meeting at a show where each artist performed, their solo projects merged to form the band in November 2013. Since their short formation, they have opened for artists such as Goldfish, Exmag, RJD2, Marvel Years and The Funk Hunters ft. Chali 2na. The group consists of Vince Seidl (Diamond Cuts) on Guitar/Keys/Sequences/Production, Landon Reichle (Lando) on Bass/Synth/Push/Production, and Ben Slade (Local Color) on Drums/Production. With a focus on hard hitting funk beats and basslines, Resonant Frequency throws down genre-defying live set that makes crowds get down. After releasing an EP and four singles in their first year together, Resonant Frequency has a lot of Music ready to release in 2015.
Collidoscope is all about the joining of forces, the smashing together of worlds. We believe that the most phenomenal ideas are formed where individual experiences, tastes, and backgrounds cross paths and spill into each other.
Producers Hank Brigham and James Hatch began collaborating and making music in summer 2014. In early 2015, the band added two new members and quickly found that the blend of unique styles and talent created a whole most definitely greater than the sum of its parts. Each member has a different musical background and a commitment to embracing as many influences as possible. While the group has a penchant for 70s funk and live instrument elements, there is nothing off limits when it comes to the flavor of the music. Each new song is a chance to explore a new aural landscape, and each new show has an element of jam and improvisation that sets it apart. Every experience is a new collision.
VENDORS & VISUAL ARTISTS PLEASE CONTACT Peter Nathaniel Ratliff FOR SPACE RESERVATION & INQUIRIES.
Let’s make 2016 the funkiest and most soulful year yet!
