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 Outskirts
The Outskirts
Incorporating equal parts folk, rock, and that high lonesome bluegrass sound, the Outskirts are sure to get a whole room moving with their energetic take on Americana music.

Formed as a trio in 2013 on the street corners of Crested Butte and the back corner of an old schoolhouse turned bar north of Durango, CO; The Outskirts have always enjoyed plucking strings with friends till the wee hours of the night. From the very first time Jim joined Aaron Cooklin (Mandolin) and Brian “bmo” Morgan (Guitar/Lead Vocals) for a jam session the three knew they wanted to share their music.

Not wanting to be just another bluegrass band, they added members one by one to form a six piece electric string band. First came Alex “Howie” Howard on electric bass, who has a funk and jazz background. Then came Keith Dunning on drums to hold down the beat and occasionally step up front to belt out a blues number. The Outskirts were finally complete with the addition of Alex Forstoff on lead guitar. His soaring, yet articulate guitar riffs delightfully complement the fast fingerpicking of the acoustic instruments.
