Liver Down the River
Liver Down the River
From the high mountain river-valley of Durango Colorado comes a six piece psych-a-funk-a-grass-a-delic band of musicians called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots in countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since it’s creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. Their unique sound and high energy performances have lead them to share the stage with the likes of Head for the Hills, Tony Furtado, and Billy Nershi to name a few.

The band got it’s start in 2012 when Patrick Storen and Emily Winter met and started playing music together. A few common fiddle tunes and Grateful Dead numbers later, the two were ready to perform. Searching for the missing link, they enlisted the help of funk master and bass player Derek Abt. In time, young ”river ridin’ flat-pickin” Dylan Ruckel joined on guitar. With the addition of drummer Carter Colia and banjo/keys man Tyler Rice, Liver Down the River was formed.

The music is a blend of original compositions and improvisational journeys that paint a picture for the listener. Each member brings their own inspirations and elements to the sound. From the high peaks of bluegrass, deepest pockets of the funk, and outer reaches of space, a unique genre of music is created. Inspiration comes from the band’s collective adventures, lessons of growing older, the following of the soul, and the ability to keep on moving on.

The band released their five track Liver Down The River EP on June 30th 2015. Less than a year later on April 8th 2016, the band released their first full length album, Life You Love, and the release was celebrated with a SOLD OUT show at the Animas City Theatre in their hometown of Durango, CO . On these tracks, Liver Down the River strives to capture the immense energy felt during the live shows, and to showcase each musician’s skills. Attempting to reflect the beautiful, yet powerful, and expansive essence of the Colorado country, the inspiration comes truly… from living the life you love.

The Uptown Toodeloo String Band
The Uptown Toodeloo String Band
The Uptown Toodeloo String Band is a mostly acoustic project performing the music of the Grateful Dead infused with high-energy bluegrass jams and powerful vocals.

The Uptown Toodeloo String Band is a fresh new project on the Colorado front-range, comprised of established Colorado players bringing a big sound and loyal audiences. Uptown Toodeloo features pickers from notable Colorado bands including Leftover Salmon, Shakedown Street,, Coral Creek, DeadPhish Orchestra and The Holler! All players are steeped in the tradition and music of the Grateful Dead.

This is not a bluegrass band playing Grateful Dead songs. And this is not “just-another-Grateful Dead tribute band” playing bluegrass instruments. The Uptown Toodeloo String Band combines the best of foot-stomping bluegrass music with the psychedelic style, arrangements and melodies of the good ole Grateful Dead. We're not playing Reckoning here folks, we go deep in the jams where acoustic instruments ought not go.
