King Friday the 13th
King Friday the 13th
KingFriday the 13th is a 6-piece exploratory jam rock group out of Denver, CO. On drums, Jay Van Kleeck brings a serious groove to the table, drawing influences from Chris Adler to Dennis Chambers. He provides a solid backbone to each jam with his pocket, and is the ever-present anchor to the music. His partner in crime is bassist Zach Martin. Zach was brought up by two classical working musicians in Rhode Island orchestras, and has been playing in various outfits all his life. His musical relationship with Jason provides the base layer for thoughtful, tactfully-constructed improvisation. Ryley is the death punch of the band. His searing, razor tone is pulled from a strong (and somewhat creepy) Frank Zappa influence. His lead playing stands out and offers incredible peaks and valleys for each piece. Davey Jones plays rhythm guitar and provides vocals. He writes many of the lyrics, set to Ryley’s compositions. He is also stunningly handsome and may blind people if stared at directly for too long.

The band met via a serendipitous stroke of luck. Having moved to Colorado a few months earlier with the intention of joining the local music community, Davey was sitting at work one day and randomly hopped on Craigslist in search of like-minded musicians. He responded to an ad Jason and Ryley had put up not 10 minutes before, so they spoke and decided to meet up. Davey then brought in Zach to the mix (since they were friends and had been in bands together at UVM) As a 4-piece, the band recorded 2 times: 1 demo in November 2015 at The Decibel Garden in Denver, and The Demo(lition) EP at The Keep in Denver, in September 2016.

After searching for keyboardists for some time (and even having one that played only one show with them), Davey found Aaron through Colorockstars and they instantly knew he was a great fit given his style, influences, and musical taste. They then began searching for a percussionist. Cue Shane Oltmanns, who responded to a social media ad posted by the band. After several rehearsals and a few great shows, he was asked to join the band full-time, which completed the lineup.
Stella Luce
Stella Luce
Stella Luce is a quirky blend of indie-rock, ethnic strings, and electronic experimentation featuring Fort Collins indie music scene veterans Alana Rolfe (viola, vocals), Brett Schreiber (bass, electronics), Tim Massa (guitar) and Sean Speer (drums). On their third album, Resurrection, Alana's sultry voice and silky strings remain at the forefront of a decidedly denser and more complex arrangement including the addition of shimmering guitars and sweeping synths played by Brett, and Sean's jazzy break-beats layered with electronic elements. Looking forward to their fourth album in 2014, the first to include newest member Tim Massa, Stella Luce is once again pushing boundaries and pulling heart-strings.

Biography
Original members Hunter Heurich and Will Robison formed the band Haphazard in the summer of 2009. In the spring of 2012, after several line-up changes, Mark Mastrangelo joined the band as the new bass player. Chad Pinkerman brought his drumming talents to the table that fall, and the band name was changed to Vermillion Road. Their passion is to deliver distinctive hard hitting music which stands apart from anything else out there. Their debut EP, Before the Storm, was released in August 2013. They are currently playing shows around the Denver metro area and writing their debut album, anticipated for release in late 2014.
Description
Vermillion Road’s mature song writing is impressive for such a young band. Their hard-rocking style and original music has a unique sound from a blending of many genres, including rock, alternative, blues and metal. Their songs have an undeniable heavy groove with unforgettable riffs and melodies. Will Robison's amazing vocals will hit you smack in the face and leave you begging for more. Hunter Heurich's unique guitar solos always impress, while Mark Mastrangelo's grooving bass parts push the music forward. Chad Pinkerman holds down a slamming, yet grooving rhythm on the drums. Their music is not only exciting to listen to, but fun to watch with the band’s great energy in their live performances.
