High energy groove rock: Smooth Money Gesture plays Breckenridge Saturday

Daily News staff report

Band name: Smooth Money Gesture

Date playing in Summit County: July 23

Location playing in Summit County: Three20South

Where’d (the band name) come from? The first drummer we had used SMG as a word to describe a shortcut while on the road. We needed a name for a poster … And the rest is history

Home base: Nederland, Colo.

Type of music you play/who are you? We are a jam band, but not your typical example of one. Fun-packed, high-energy groove rock, psychedelic jams, touches of blues, calypso, bluegrass and rock and roll

If your music were a tangible item, what would it be, and why? A rubix cube, almost impossible to figure out, brightly colored and entertains you for hours.

Why do people love ya? Cuz we love them. Our music is an interactive experience. We feed of the fans and they feed off us. And I think they can tell.

How do you keep it fresh? New songs, changing intros, endings, adding new parts where they usually aren’t, even if only for one song for one show … going out on a limb and improvising. You never know where that can take you, and that’s exciting

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done/weirdest experience? Driving the band, 10 friends, four dogs from Alaska to Colorado – it took two weeks for whatever reason.
