This one’s gonna be particular fire.
The membership of these three bands overlaps. Horns overlap, guitars overlap, bass overlaps… And that’s precisely what I love about it. If feels like: yeah, we all have our own individual projects that we’re committed to but ultimately: we’re community… we’re fam. …and we’re all bad-ass musicians.
All three bands fuse all types of stuff… So you’ll hear dozens of different styles throughout the course of the night… So to keep it simple and tidy:
Pink Hawks: afrobeat/funk
Roka Hueka: Latin ska
Mocochetes: Latin fusion
More bragging: all three bands were nominated for ‘Best Latin Act’ by the Westword.
More hype: all three bands will merge together like Voltron to drop a cumbia on everyone so get ready to rock your most comfortable dancing shoes that night!
There’s gonna be sweatin’… and I love sweatin’… I really do love sweatin’…
Here’s the Facebook event. Try not to sweat on it, please, thanks!
See you there!
About a week ago I started putting together a Spotify play list with all the local Denver bands I could think of. …and now, with the help of some friends on Facebook, I’ve gathered over 600 songs (from numerous albums) and almost 40 hours worth of music including: metal, hip hop, rock, country, Latin, afrobeat, funk, ska, reggae, and other styles.

I think the best/funnest way to enjoy this is to open up the playlist and just hit “shuffle” until you find something you like. …and when you find something you like, the cool thing is that you can catch many/most of these artists performing right here in Denver.
I know I’m missing so much from this list (including the glaringly obvious)… So please help me out if you see something missing… I’m [mostly] looking for Denver or Colorado bands that’re actively writing and performing…
So far the artists include:
Call of the Void
Chella & The Charm
Colfax Speed Queen
Debajo del Agua
DJ Cavem Moetavation
Envy on the Coast
Gumbo le Funque
Jaden Carlson Band
Raven and the Writing Desk
Safe Boating is No Accident
Wheelchair Sports Camp
