Envy Alo
Envy Alo
Born in the foothills of Boulder, CO in the fall of 2015, Envy Alo has quickly made a name for themselves in the thriving Colorado music scene. The band's signature "boogaloo fusion" sound is built on an array of influences, ranging from old school organ funk to guitar-driven progressive rock.

Envy Alo is Aaron Pettine, Kevin Hinder, and Nate Etter. Aaron and Nate have been performing for years in a variety of local Boulder bands, including Booster and Chando respectively. Kevin recently transplanted to Colorado from the Baltimore, MD area, where he performed in a number of bands over the years.

After just a few jam sessions, the three found an undeniable chemistry and quickly had a nucleus of original songs crafted. With a busy schedule of Front Range shows and a growing funkhead fanbase, 2017 is shaping up to be the band's biggest year yet.
The Sweet Lillies
The Sweet Lillies
The Sweet Lillies’ high-energy, melodic tunes have quickly captured the hearts and music souls of fans in Colorado and beyond. The band credits its appeal to the original and compelling songwriting of all four members. The magnetic combination of Melly Frances (vocals), Julie Gussaroff (upright bass), Becca Bisque (viola), and Danjo Lynn (banjo) give this band a soulful, rare, alluring sound that blends Americana and bluegrass, creating a style all its own. As testament to their appeal, The Sweet Lillies have already shared the stage with the likes of Peter Rowan, Vince Herman, Kyle Hollingsworth, Andy Hall, Bill McKay, Jake Wolf, Dave Abear, Leftover Salmon, Yarn, and Drunken Hearts. Based out of Colorado’s Front Range, The Sweet Lillies are continually expanding their audience and reach, building fan and critic support through an unwavering commitment to creativity, a contagious love of music, and a get-up-and-dance attitude that spreads lots of love and smiles.
Francis and the Wolf
Francis and the Wolf
Francis and the Wolf is an American rock and roll band founded on love for a solid groove, melodic guitars and a song that has something to say. This band of nomads settled down in Northern Colorado's front range looking for a place to dig in and create. You can hear streams of Roots, Folk, Blues and Southern Rock embedded in their sound as topics of real life in modern America fuel the energy of their performance.
Boulder Sound Lab
Boulder Sound Lab
In late 2014, multi-instrumentalist, Collin Thomas, and bassist, Kyle "Hart" Brown, set out to form a band that was bound by no genre, which had the ability to throw a kick-ass party. They both grew up in Colorado mountain towns, and eventually met in Breckenridge, CO. They eventually moved to Boulder, determined to play epic music. Thomas grew up playing classical violin and jazz guitar, and today is a lover of music from all cultures. Brown's took to playing the bass at the ripe age of 20, but quickly gained experience and skill by taking lessons and playing with other musicians, making him a solid jazz and funk bassist today. Kevin Ritch, a guitarist and spicy food lovin' Floridian, joined shortly after the formation of BSL, adding his bluesy, soulful style to the sound. Ritch is also an accomplished classical guitarist. After months of searching for the right drummer, Gaines Green, a geologist from South Carolina, was added to form a quartet. Green has played in a multitude of bands, ranging from funk to blues to jam. His energy and accuracy holds Boulder Sound Lab's music together like glue. Six months after the addition of Green, Lyle Wilner joined on baritone sax, alto sax, and the flute. Wilner and Thomas had played together in their high school jazz ensemble, and when they ran into each other in Boulder, Thomas asked if Wilner was interested in playing music with the Sound Lab. Wilner accepted, bringing his jazz prowess and a smooth, soulful vibe to the group. The Boulder Sound Lab is still composed of these five member, and can be seen playing their unique, high-energy music across the Boulder/Denver area.
