The Jauntee
Averaging over one hundred shows a year — The Jauntee has built a foundation of dedicated fans across the country. After spending 8 years rooted in New England and touring nationally, the band now resides in Colorado but considers the stage their truest home. They’ve received national recognition at several festivals (ie. Peach Fest, Catskill Chill) and have traveled the circuit of staple nationwide clubs and theaters (ie. Georgia Theatre, Bluebird Theatre, Fox Theatre, Brooklyn Bowl, Paradise Rock Club). A focus on live improvisation, set list variety, and exploration gives The Jauntee a musical edge in the live setting. As Berklee College of Music alumni, their technical prowl, willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from your average upcoming Jam Band. The Jauntee aims to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. It’s music you get lost inside of – Music that pulls you in like a violent, beautiful cyclone of sound. The Jauntee’s improvisational landscape spans multiple genres, including: Funk, Rock, Jazz, Progressive, Bluegrass, Psychedelic and Ambient music. Their willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from your average upcoming Jam Band. They aim to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. With an ever-expanding song catalog and an inclination for open ended improvisation, every show promises to be a unique experience

Meadow Mountain
Meadow Mountain started as a group of friends busking on the corner of the Vail farmers market, and it wasn’t long before they were playing gigs around Vail and Summit counties. They formed initially over a love of traditional and progressive bluegrass music. For the first summer of the band’s existence, they learned as much bluegrass music as they could, digging into bands like The Punch Brothers, Bluegrass Album Band, and Bela Fleck’s Drive band. It was only a year after the band formed that they were hired to be the house band aboard the cruise ship, “The Norwegian Dawn”. There, the band spent a month tightening up their sound and exploring the eastern coast of Canada. Since their return, they have become one of the premier voices in Colorado Bluegrass music. The band has given a TED talk, hosted Denver’s only performance jam, and won the prestigious Rockygrass band competition. Other notable achievements include 1st place at the 2017 Ullrgrass band competition, 3rd place at the 2017 Telluride bluegrass competition, and opening for The Del McCoury Band. They live in Denver, CO.

Trevor Green
Spirited, deep, and thought provoking are just a few words to describe the artist known as Trevor Green. His music is something fresh and distinctly new, yet is deeply woven in the spiritual fabric of our ancient ancestors. Surrounded by 5 guitars, 3 didgeridoos, an array of percussion instruments and decorated of symbolic ancestral nature, Green’s stage appears to be a musical playground not for the faint of heart.
“I follow the music where it leads me. Through this process I find the music always comes from an honest place and that is most important in receiving the songs when they come through.” What deepens the music is Trevor’s ability to connect with his audience. Threading together sing-able and uplifting melodies, dynamic instrumentation, heart pounding rhythms and the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo, with his spontaneous improvisational ability, Green’s performance is a one man powerhouse with universal appeal that seems to come from the ground up. With his honest delivery and ability to extricate the music from a deep place of truth, he leads his audience through vast landscapes of sound, weaving together a magnetic and spellbinding performance.

Andrew Sturtz
When singer/songwriter Andrew Sturtz isn’t playing folk, jazz and soul in local Boulder venues, he’s out on the festival circuit, bringing his potent voice to stages like the Riverlights Festival in South Bend, IN; The Traverse City Microbrew & Music Festival in Traverse City, MI; and ARISE Festival in Loveland, CO.

Since his first gigs at only 12 years old and recording an EP as a teenager, Andrew has captured audiences with his ability to shift seamlessly between soulful acoustic music and fronting bands from multiple genres. From residencies in Boulder, CO staples No Name Bar and The Laughing Goat coffeehouse to more prominent appearances as The Walnut Room in Denver and Uncommon Ground in Chicago, his precise guitar grooves and seemingly limitless voice inspire comparisons to scene favorites such as Martin Sexton and Amos Lee, among others.

In addition to appearances and collaborations around the Boulder area, Andrew has an album in the works, due Spring 2018.
