Smooth Money Gesture comes to Shine on June 22nd in a very humble manner.  This year, they've performed to a SOLD OUT Fox Theatre, as well as a capacity crowd on April 20th in their hometown of Nederland.  After 6+ years of playing on the Front Range, they feel it is time to give thanks back to all the friends, fans, and family they've met over the years.  To give thanks Smooth Money Gesture will do something they've never done before - play an all acoustic show.  Not only will they bring the typical SMG intensity, they plan to bring some of CO's finest musicians along for the ride.  Stay posted to SMG's facebook page for updates on FRIENDS they plan to include in this magical show.  DO NOT MISS THIS!

So far 2017 has been a year of leaps and bounds for Minneapolis's funk bringers, PHO.  They kicked off the year with a short run with The Motet, spent Mardi Gras opening up for the Eric Krasno Band, played a packed hometown show at the Triple Rock on Prince's Memorial Day, performed a successful run of shows in Colorado, and released their highly anticipated sophomore album, two, with it debuting at #10 on the Relix/Jamband Radio Charts.  
They said, "Can't stop, Won't stop" though.  After rounding out summer with festival plays such as People Fest (WI), Two Trains Music and Arts Festival (NE Minneapolis), and Great American Lobster Fest (Chicago) among others, they'll hit October hard with shows all throughout the Midwest and Mountain regions.  Catch them on the road as they bring that Minneapolis sound to a venue near you.
