Versa Vise
Versa Vise
Versa Vise was originally formed in 2009 by Courtney Wilmer, Tomm Wright, Kellen Rivers and Joey Smithwick. After 2 years the band split up but was re established by Courtney Wilmer and Tomm Wright in 2015. In 2018 Chris Conrow and Karsten Bennett joined as the synth controller and bass player respectively. All of Versa Vise's songs are currently written by Courtney Wilmer and Tomm Wright. 
Diabolical Sound Platoon
Diabolical Sound Platoon
DIABOLICAL SOUND PLATOON BIO
Diabolical Sound Platoon was born in 1998 in the home of one Samuel Redman
(who would later go on to become known as The Prestidigitator). Along with his
friend Benjamin Fisher (AKA Obi One) the two created one of Southwest
Colorado’s Premier Hip­Hop groups. Through the years, DSP has taken many
forms with many influences, styles and experimentations but has always had one
key goal: To create original Hip­Hop and stretch the bounds of the genre.
Diabolical has opened for the likes of Dead Prez, Lyrics Born, The Coup, KRS­
One and many more as well as playing numerous venues throughout the
southwest. With the added Turntable expertise of DJ Soul Work (Andrew Angle)
and the added dimension of loop orchestration and dynamic Beatboxing,
Diabolical Sound Platoon is hoping to push the limits of Hip­Hop.
Profetic Calaveras
Profetic Calaveras
Profetic Calaveras are a Latin-Funk-Fusion trio. Since 2016, the band's main focus has been to spread positive energy and light. Originally formed in Tyler, Texas and currently based out of Durango, Colorado, the progressive group has been described as an eclectic mix of sounds inspired by Santana, Vulfpeck, Khrangbin, and more.
