MIDDLE-AGED DAD JAM BAND featuring Ken Marino and David Wain, brings music and comedy to Denver on August 29!

Ken Marino and David Wain met at NYU in 1988 where they co-founded the cult favorite sketch comedy group THE STATE. They stayed friends and collaborators over the years, working together on movies like Role Models, Wet Hot American Summer and Wanderlust and TV shows like Childrens Hospital, Medical Police and of course The State. Ken also has acted in a dumb amount of television series, and currently stars on The Other Two (HBO) and Party Down (Starz).

They are ALSO middle-aged dads and wannabe rockstars. So recently they got together with a group of other old friends (some dads, some not; some middle aged, some not) and started jamming, playing a diverse songbook of classic rock, pop, Motown, alt, New Orleans, favorites from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

When clips of these jam sessions went viral on social media, it led to sold-out live shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia and New York as well as a glowing write-up in the L.A. Times.

It’ll be an evening of great music, comedy shtick in between songs and amazing guest stars (including many other members of The State).
