Tenth Mountain Division
Born in the fertile mountains of Colorado, Tenth Mountain Division continues the musical heritage established by their ancestors.
Tenth Mountain Division is a team based in Denver via the Colorado Rockies. The group consists of five members: Andrew Cooney (Bass / Guitar), Campbell Thomas (Piano / Percussion / Keyboards), Tyler Gwynn (Drums), MJ Ouimette (Guitars), Winston Heuga (Mandolin) – who found unity thanks to their love of music and natural environment. As Gwynn maintains the heartbeat of their sound on drums, the rest of the team take to vocals in addition to their menagerie of instruments. TMD has toured extensively in their home country, delivering reverberation and praise felt across the country. This has resulted in performances at the Summer Camp Music Festival and supporting roles for artists like Leftover Salmon.
Like those that came before them, Tenth Mountain Division pushes the sound found in the mountains in bold new directions with their exploratory approach to Americana. Their style draws freely from the well of all of their diverse influences including, but not limited to, classic southern rock, progressive bluegrass born in their Colorado backyard, the adventurous spirit of psychedelic 60s blues. and direct rock ‘n’. roller. Much like their CO predecessors, String Cheese Incident and Yonder Mountain String Band, they challenge simple categorization. Instead, they reference their musical history with their high-energy shows as they open up new musical avenues every night. In doing so, they became the new voice of the Colorado music scene, taking their ski-party sound across the country and making every show a night in the Rockies.
On June 18, Tenth Mountain Division will release their latest album, Butte La Rose, with a sold-out album release night at Colorado’s historic Mishawaka Amphitheater. Until 2021, expect this loud crew to continue to show their energy and sound across the country.
The Ace Royal group
The Royal Aces Band plays classic and modern surfing, and instrumental rock and roll, and the band members are longtime veterans of the Colorado music scene. The group includes Kevin Phillips on bass, Doug Wilson on drums and John Ragan on guitar. The Royal Aces have performed throughout the region for many years, at special events, private parties, bars, breweries and auto shows.
The turntables review
The Turntable Revue is a family group. Led by brother and sister duo Joe Bianchi and Terry Armistead, the two grew up playing music with their families. Their parents still play music in their church! Terry’s husband Jeff plays keyboards and Bob Masters is on bass. They are influenced by so many genres and play a wide variety of tracks from Zeppelin to Emmy Lou. Expect to hear your favorites as well as some folk rock originals.
