Who is Dead Floyd and why do they keep following me around?
Dead Floyd is a celebration of the music of two of rock and roll’s greatest bands, The Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd, mashed together into one high-energy, unpredictable show. Drawing from both extensive catalogs of music, the Dead Floyd performances include early rarities to modern classics and everything in between. The love of the music of both bands inspires Dead Floyd to uniquely interpret the songs in a way that allows the music to timelessly live on and the legacy of both bands to stay alive to the next generation of fans. The excitement, creativity, and improvisation that went into both bands live shows of so many years is brought back for old and new fans to enjoy today.
Because the number of songs available from both bands is so large, the question that is heard at every Dead Floyd show is “What will they play next?” The unpredictability of the set list and the modern translation of classic, beloved songs bring an element of surprise to every Dead Floyd show. That is what has kept fans captivated and why their legacy as a tribute band continues to grow.
Dead Floyd is based out of Fort Collins, Colorado and, since forming in summer 2009, they have performed at renowned venues such as The Fox Theatre, The Aggie Theatre, Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Owsleys, Quixotes, Ullr’s Tavern, and more.
The members of the band draw on their roots in jazz, funk, and rock to bring a high level of musicianship to the music and close attention to detail. The band is made up of Charlie Humphreys (guitar, vocals), Josh Miller (bass, vocals), Stu Crair (drums, vocals), and Matt Goldberg (keys, synth). This group of players has combined to perform over 1000 shows across the country in various original projects including The Grippe, Hot Gazpacho, The Maji, Wooleye, Holy Moses and the High Rollers, Orooni, and many more.
The audience response to Dead Floyd has been overwhelming for everyone involved and the fans’ love of the music pushes this project to new heights. Come to the next show and find out why…
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.
