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:
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.
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 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.
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.
