Condensed Bio:
ATOMGA makes music that moves with their signature, hypnotic dance rhythms, socially conscious lyrics, driving rhythm section, and an aggressive three piece horn section. Formed in 2011, ATOMGA made a quick name for themselves by using their infectious energy to transform any room into a sweaty, booty-shaking dance party. After making a rampant climb up the ladder of Denver’s already amazing music community, ATOMGA released their debut EP in January of 2014 and their first full length album "Black Belt" in June of 2015. The brand new EP "AGA" was released to a sold out crowd at Ophelia's Electric Soapbox in Denver on February 16th 2018 featuring our new lead singer Calyptic and drummer JR Ranck!

ATOMGA has played shows throughout Colorado in venues and festivals including Ogden Theatre, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Belly Up Aspen, Bluebird Theater, Boulder Theater, Fox Theater, State Bridge, Aggie Theater, Barkley Ballroom, Gothic Theater, Top of Red Rocks Amphitheater, Arise Music Festival, Carbondale Mountain Fair, Crestone Music Festival, Taste of Colorado, People's Fair, Westword Music Showcase, Underground Music Festival, Cherry Creek Wine Festival, Desert Rocks Music Festival, Colorado Mountain Wine Festival, and many more.

Quotes from Press:
"If you live in Denver, you know ATOMGA. Having served as a staple in the live music scene since 2011, the nine-piece group has made a name for themselves as a guaranteed good time." -Denby Gardiner, (303 Magazine)

"Atomga specializes in positive vibes, authentic Nigerian Afrobeat and funk/soul sounds ideal for dancing your ass off." -Ru Johnson, (Westword)

"The songs that Atomga performed were intricate and detailed and the band’s stage presence was loose and flowing. You cannot help but have fun when you see these musicians energetically rock the stage." -Brian Turk,( Listen Up Denver)

"The sound, anything but pedestrian, was an inspiring find. Definitely a band to watch for the fusion/Afrobeat crowd." -Billy Thieme, (Reverb)
