Denver has quickly become a hot pocket for the live music scene and there’s one local band taking notice of the unparalleled talent popping up around town; that’s Fox Street. For their second year in a row, the Denver locals will take over the historic Bluebird Theater during New Year's Eve weekend, this time curating three nights of unique musical performances, all by local musicians.
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.
Funk fans near and far are starting to figure that Analog Son might as well be in a perpetual studio session. With just a couple years on the scene, the group is gearing up to release their third full-length album this coming January. The band will also embark on a winter tour making stops through Salt Lake City, Jackson Hole, Ketchum, Bozeman, and Fort Collins. Analog Son will then return to The Bluebird Theater in their hometown of Denver, CO for a capstone performance to release their album on January 27, 2017.
This past Friday night at the Gothic Theater in Denver, CO, two bands collided to make one of the funkiest sounds and meaningful tributes to other artists that they have ever made. The energy in the room was evident by the crowd’s fearless dancing. These are two of the fastest rising bands in our music scene, and together with some special guests, they produced. Analog Son was created by guitarist Jordan Linit (Kinetix, Ableminds) and bassist Josh Fairman (Kinetix).
The newest funk heavyweights on the scene, Analog Son, are back with another performance in Boulder, July 31st with legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker. With a string of ground-shaking and crowd pleasing shows following the release of their latest LP Stomp And Shout, Analog Son is ready to deliver another incredible performance.
This was an event to invigorate the senses. If there ever was a party that evoked imagery, it was this one. Upon entering, guest’s visual senses were tickled not only by colorful floral arrangements by Pink Paisley, but the art work by Kurt Redeker (artist/owner of Knew Conscious) and friends was magnificent.
It was a bill that was full of bands that I have been anticipating seeing. I have seen members in each band play individually in all-star jams and as guests with other bands, but this was what I was waiting for. The New Mastersounds together with Analog Son and Adam Robinson & the Funky Monks opening. This was a hat trick with three great musical acts for the price of one. The crowd bulked up late, but none the less, they were there, and it was packed.
Last summer, Analog Son released one of the strongest debut albums I’ve heard in quite some time. Guitarist Jordan Linit and bassist Josh Fairman composed the tracks and enlisted 18 musicians – ranging from nationally recognized to locally cherished – to imbue the songs with a euphonious blend of fusion and funk.
