Cognatus
Cognatus
Were a fun loving Denver local Phrunk band. Our genre is Phrunk which means progressive funk punk. Each member in our band brings a different meal to the pot luck and we get a vast variety of different feasts. Phrunk, it's what the Pilgrims ate.
Biography
Pronounced (Cog.Nat.Us.) Nat like Gnat not Nate.
To us, music should never be limited. If we wanna add something to a song that wouldn't be considered a norm then we will add it. Do you think Na Na Na's were only meant for a 3 chord progression? Well we think they were meant for 8 finger bass taps. Instrumental Metal break down in the same song? you bet your sweet chilly pheasesteak we did. We write what we want in the style that we want and what we get is Phrunk. Were just really 4 kids looking to have a good time enjoying the things we do.
Big Green Carpet
Big Green Carpet
Big Green Carpet is a rock trio from Bailey, Colorado. After a few " changing of the guards", the band’s formation solidified in 2010 when Lorris (guitar/ vocals), Trenton (drums/ vocals), and Phil (bass/vocals) united to create a unique, americana rock sound that is slowly making its way around the country.
Big Green Carpet’s debut LP, From The Ashes, recorded at Evergroove Studio, is a personal set of songs slated for release in the summer of 2012. Inspired in part by a fire that burned down the band’s practice space, the 11 tracks on "From The Ashes" brings elements of singer/songwriter folk and rock music together with melodic guitars, dynamic grooves, and emotional lyrics.
The band has a broad spectrum of influences. Classic acts like Led Zeppelin and Hendrix, as well as alternative and indie rock such as Counting Crows, Pearl Jam, Buffalo Tom, Alice in Chains, Jimmy Eat World, and Kings of Leon, are among many others that have had a hand in shaping the way Big Green Carpet is today. Much thanks to the musical geniuses that have come before.
The finely crafted tunes on the new album are given a grand, new perspective during the band’s live shows, which showcases the energy and emotion behind their songs. With a developing base of devoted fans in Denver, Big Green Carpet plans to take their sound to audiences all around Colorado and beyond in 2012.

Greenbrier Broadcast
Greenbrier Broadcast
A new series of transmissions originating from Denver Colorado, Greenbrier Broadcast bridges channels in creating an ethereal yet crushing blend of music rooted in heavy rock. Early communications manifested themselves in the form of a two man duo, steadily increasing in amplitude and breadth until a full spectrum signal emerged from the static. Now, reformed and regeared to launch their aural attack on the masses, GBXC is primed to blow.
