The band will have a free show on Friday, March 18 at the Motherloaded Tavern in Breckenridge.
Summit Daily News: Describe your music to someone who has never heard it before.
Jug Colangelo: Our music can be described as being a blend of soulful blues-rock, with a funky edge that can keep the dance floor hot. Attendees can expect the group’s influences to shine through, paying homage to iconic artists like Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, Les Claypool, Galactic, James Brown and more.
SDN: How did the band get started, and what do you feel is your biggest accomplishment so far?
JC: Although we’ve played with each other for more than 10 years, this current project has only been together since 2014. It was spurred by the disbandment of another band and our mutual love for music and performing live. We truly love providing music to the masses in hopes of creating a positive environment. As for our biggest accomplishment, I’d have to say it derives within our accumulated experiences. We’ve had the pleasure of performing with some awesome people and feel very grateful for those opportunities. Members have performed with Edgar Winter, Leon Russell, David Lindley, Muddy Waters Blues Band, The Mighty Diamonds, The Meditations, Tea Leaf Green, Sister Carol, Trey Anastasio Band and more.
SDN: How would you like to see the band grow in the future?
JC: Our ultimate goal would have to be the development of our fan base. We want people to enjoy our music, and more importantly, come back to our shows. We’ve been working on our tour capabilities too, and strive to have a farther reach, which will include international activities.
SDN: What would you like the audience to walk away with after watching your show?
JC: We’d like people to leave with a sense of joy. They should feel like the experience gave them a new prospective on life, furnished by the groups positive vibe, and carry that outlook with them.
