J2G Live is proud to announce the return of its most popular show, Dance Party Time Machine, in 2018. Join us on Saturday, March 24th, at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, Colorado, as we take fans on a journey through the greatest dance party hits of all time. From rock ‘n’ roll’s roots to classic soul and R&B, to disco, funk, 80’s pop, 90’s hip-hop, and the club bangers of today, nothing is out of reach of the Dance Party Time Machine.

Steve Kimock – aka “the guitar monk,” as Relix put it—needs little introduction; he’s been one of the top-flight psychedelic guitarists of his generation, a founder of the whole concept of jam bands. He’s played with all the living members of the Grateful Dead, Jorma Kaukonen, the late co-founder of Parliament/Funkadelic, Bernie Worrell…you name it. On October 28th he’ll release a new album, Satellite City, produced by Dave Schools, and there’s no better way to celebrate such an event than to go play it.
Reggae roots ran deep last Saturday night at Denver’s Cervantes’ Otherside, as local and national acts alike took the stage together to celebrate life, love and the beauty we know as reggae music. Headlining the Ground Up Reggae Fest was Denver’s own Project 432 & the Hashtones, Ohio’s funk and jam six-piece Tropidelic as well as Minneapolis’ premier Irie provider Mr. Jon Wayne.
Where else but at a Dark Star Orchestra show does the cryptical reciting and mind-changing on years and dates in the mid seventies occur with such frequency.
