SOLAR (Alternative Rock/Pop), a formulation that sparked back in the fall of 2002, back when Bill Clarke and Ken Lee were sharing some new original ideas that Ken had wrote. While both were playing in another local Denver band, Bill and Ken continued to write and develop the sound of SOLAR. SOLAR debuted with their first show at a Colorado gem, Little Bear Saloon, in Evergreen CO on September 28th, 2004. Since then, they have been featured at many great Colorado venues, events and festivals, and private parties. They have a very loyal fan base and continues to build new following. Their music composition is mainly based on emotional and melodic vocals, with a pace-groove driven type of rhythm. In 2007 they released their first full length CD, SOLAR - RUN. Instrumentation on this project was kept at the foundation of Drums, Bass, and Guitar. They wanted to keep things raw and somewhat "un-super engineered". 2010 has brought a couple of "key" new additions to SOLAR, Vanessa Vanzin on Piano and Chris Moots on Bass. New growth, energy, and inspiration is well and developing into something new and exciting!
The Humbuckers are a Denver-based band and have been rocking the Mile High city since 2003. Originally formed to play at the wedding of their rhythm guitarist, the band has since expanded beyond weddings and Bar Mitzvahs to playing the Denver club scene and is regularly featured at Herman's Hideaway. The band covers classic rock songs of the 20th century and soon-to-be classics from the 21st century. They intermingle originals into their sets and like to reinvent cover songs into their own style. The Humbuckers are not married to a particular style or hung up on labels. They are about playing rock and roll honestly and with a passion. They play for their audience, they play to have fun and they play what they love.
