Music Lineup, presented by High Plains Bank

 

Music  plays a big part in the G'Knight Ride fun.   We are stoked to again  showcase great Colorado bands from our start at 3PM through our post-Ride concert.

We look forward to another great show June 16th: 

ONE FLEW WEST, 8:30PM

 Colorado pop/rockers, One Flew West, are back with their second EP, 'Trial And Error'.  Formed in the Summer of 2010 here in Longmont, Colorado,  One Flew West   has grown from a high school garage band into a full-scale  rock   machine storming up and down the front range. Now based in Denver,  the   four-piece has made a lasting mark on the local music scene and  look  to  make that mark on the national scene in the near future.  

CYCLES, 7:15PM

 Cycles  is a three piece band that  blends several musical genres including  rock, jazz, hip-hop, soul, funk  and more.  Based out of Denver, the  band has an ever-developing sound  making no two performances alike.   There new album, 'Vacation', just dropped May 7th.  Take a listen! 

TRASHCAN JACKSON, 6PM

Trashcan Jackson,  a Denver based post-funk outfit that knows how to get down with the   get down. The band is built  from the marriage of avant-garde jazz cats Art Smart Anatomy (Brian Saulig, bass and Eric Frank, percussion) with Summit County's mega-talent, Sam Bee (guitar, vocals).  Trashcan Jackson  is one of those bands that's best to see live given their quirky stage  antics and proclivity for improvisation.  Soul-infused grunge-funk made  for booty-shakin' and baby makin'!  

KYLE DONOVAN, 4PM

Kyle  Donovan is a singer-songwriter based on the Front Range of Colorado. His 2016 album, The Kindness of Strangers, was inspired by the  connection and common bond of humanity that he found touring across the  US in 2015. The album's "spare, acoustic, [and] infectious" sound landed  Donovan an Honorable Mention at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Contest and recognition from American  Songwriter Magazine. In 2017, his unreleased material was selected at  the Telluride Bluegrass Festival's Troubadour Contest, winning him a  spot as an Alternate Finalist. This year, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival both selected Kyle as  a finalist for their respective Songwriting Contests. He now plays in  multiple projects across the Front Range, including Summerland Sun, The  Constellation Collective, and Clandestine Amigo, as well as fronting his own band.  

CLANDESTINE AMIGO, 3PM

 

Jessica  Eppler creates a mix of darkly poetic, R&B inspired rock. Backed by  Mr. Fancy Pants, Michael Wooten on drums and Kyle Donovan's effortless  guitar skills, Clandestine Amigo brings a smooth and seductive sound to  the stage. Other secret friends may pop up at various shows.
