Adrienne O
Adrienne O is a Denver pop/rock band that sounds like a modern Blondie singing a mix of The Killers and Depeche Mode.

For Adrienne Osborn, the journey to becoming a full-time musician and lead singer of the indie pop-rock band Adrienne O. has been a long one. The record-breaking two-time national champion water skier and former software developer made a major career change to become the musician and vocal coach that’s always been living inside of her. While having the courage to make such a drastic career transition, living life deeply is not just a mantra found woven throughout her songwriting and her band’s performances, it is one she embodies in every part of her life, and encourages her audiences to do the same. Her emotionally-charged lyrics and stage presence are her message to fans to embrace everything life has to offer, good and bad, without fear.

With a powerful sound and thoughtful lyrics that rev up the heart and soul, Osborn’s band has previously headlined various fairs and festivals including South Park Music Festival and Capitol Hill People’s Fair, while also performing at Taste of Colorado and Underground Music Showcase. They recently embarked on several theater performances this past fall, including the Bluebird Theater and an opening slot at the Gothic Theatre, and headined the Gothic Theatre in January 2015. Osborn’s goal is to continue providing fans a live musical experience which evokes both energy and tenderness while doing so on an even larger scale.
Adrienne O and their music have been featured on KTCL 93.3 Locals Only, 107x Project Local, KCOL 94.9FM, The Colorado Sound, Channel 8 TV's Denver Loft Sessions, Literati Records podcasts, Callywood Radio, multiple KGNU Innervision Top 30 Countdowns, and the 2013 BolderBOULDER Bootlegs CD. The band has played at venues and festivals such as the South Park Music Festival, the Underground Music Showcase, the Taste of Colorado, the Bluebird Theatre, the Gothic Theatre, the Hi-Dive, the Walnut Room, the Larimer Lounge, Nissi's, the Dickens Opera House, City Hall, the Soiled Dove Underground and the Moon Room.

Rocket Surgeons
Rocket Surgeons (formerly Filthy T) is the brainchild of six Denverites intent on blending modern rock and smart rap. The band’s signature sound is articulate vocals over soulful guitar parts and driving rhythms.

>> What We’re About:

The city of Denver is a successful mix of polar opposites – tech startups flourish in a cowboy culture, East Coast and West Coast natives live together in harmony, and hippies and republicans co-celebrate 4/20. Growing up together in the Mile High City, rapper-producer Russell Ben Hedman and guitarist Joe Barnholt envisioned that the same effortless integration could be achieved in mixing the clever rhythms of hip-hop with edgy rock sounds. The original duo has been joined by singer Sami Davis, bassist Kirby Beegles, and axe man Joe Shull.

Rocket Surgeons has garnered continual accolades, including selection for 93.3 KTCL’s Hometown for the Holidays Top 10 and Big Gig Competition Top 10. As a live band, Rocket Surgeons has headlined and sold out numerous venues (including the Bluebird Theatre), won a spot as a finalist for Westword Magazine's Best of the West, and landed stage time to represent the Denver music scene at the first ever Denver County Fair. The group has opened for touring artists including The Flobots, Vanilla Ice, Rehab, and Sidewalk Chalk.

The band is also committed to doing great things for the Denver community. Rocket Surgeons has organized and played fundraising concerts for organizations like Children’s Hospital, the victims of the 2012 Aurora theater shooting, Claire Davis (Arapahoe High School shooting victim), and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado.

>> Who We Sound Like:

The Flobots (but with more songs for the ladies)
Gym Class Heroes (but not as good at dodgeball or rope climbing)
Linkin Park (but with less radio play… way less ☹)
All Chiefs
All Chiefs is an independent band formed in 2013 in Colorado. The founding members Nick Story (Formerly of Painted by Numbers) & Justen Howard (formerly of UK indie darlings "Empire of Lights") were brought together by an internet add titled "Wanted: Epic Rock Band Hell Bent on World Domination". neither joined that band. The two instead went on to recruit Mic Carroll, Ben Batchelor (two members of the legendary boulder band "Tommy & The Tangerines"), and veteran Detroit rocker Connor "Danger" Brown to form a decidedly more dynamic project that would do anything from wall of sound to quiet hum, from dance to drone and everything in between.

In an effort to establish a little street cred, and introduce themselves to the world the band independently released their debut single "The Wave" in 2013. The effort was a success receiving fantastic reviews and turning up the buzz factor around this Colorado quintet.

In 2014. After taking the time to hone in on the sound All Chiefs were looking for. The band released their Highly Anticipated EP Titled "The Danger Mission EP" this release established them as a sonic forced to be reckoned with. The Danger Mission incorporates the best parts of indie rock, classic and modern dance, and atmospheric noise. with enough pop sensibility to win over listeners of all types.

For All Chiefs 2015 was About shows shows shows. The band took to the streets solidifying their live performance prowess. Playing with bands like the Mowglis, and Fitz and the Tantrums. Leaving it all on the stage at festivals, clubs, and in basements all over. In late 2015 All Chiefs parted ways with their original guitarist, and brought on performer, song writer, and secret weapon Zack Dare. With the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign band also began recording their second EP "Fashion Forward" to be released in spring of 2016.

This band oozes Hypnotic guitars riffs, moving bass lines, earthshaking drums, lush synths, plenty of beeps, boops, and digital sprinkles. All lovingly stitched together with bittersweet hook laden vocal melodies. Some call it indie rock. some say alternative dance pop. In the end you should listen & decide for yourself. Because we are All Chiefs.
Vermillion Road
It's almost unheard of today for a band so young to not only resonate with the hard rock sound that's been popular for so many years, but to also stand out in the very competitive Denver music scene. That's exactly what excites Vermillion Road, and has motivated them to create a new energetic modern rock sound. Filled with heavy guitar tones, driving drum beats, and soaring melodic vocals with catchy melodies and hooks, their music aims to reignite the rock scene.

Their goal is to bring this contemporary rock sound to the forefront of popular music today and to expose a whole new generation to the power of their music. With a successful EP under their belt and a debut full length album, Palaces, coming out in late May 2015, the four have set their sights high on a mission to change the music industry as we know it.

It's becoming increasingly common for rock bands to invent ways to break the mold of what a rock band should be. Through their distinct energy in their live performances and heartfelt lyrics, this dynamic group is committed to bringing the very best to the most important part of Vermillion Road - the fans. It's their desire and mission to connect with people on a visceral, emotional level, and it's this desire that drives everything Vermillion Road does. Music is an amazing gift and they feel privileged to be given an opportunity to translate the everyday struggles of life into 3-4 minute snippets of raw energy and empowerment.

The fall of 2012 found guitarist Hunter Heurich, bassist Mark Mastrangelo, and drummer Will Robison looking for a good vocalist/front man to complete their band. Their tedious search on Craigslist was getting them nowhere, then one day Hunter overheard Will singing one of their songs. At that moment, Hunter had an epiphany when he realized Will was the singer they had been looking for all along. "I always knew Will could sing but I didn't realize how good he actually was until that moment!" says Hunter. "His distinct voice and perfect pitch along with his passion and intense stage presence made it a no-brainer," he adds. They shifted their search to finding a new drummer and soon found the perfect addition to their family, Chad Pinkerman, who not only brought precision drumming but solid backing vocals which complimented Will's voice. "I guess it was meant to be," explains Will, "Chad moved to Colorado for a job and didn't bring his drum kit. We had my kit for him to use so it worked out perfectly!"

The band began playing out and within three months, they had won the Wicked Winterfest 2013 Battle of the Bands at the Gothic Theater, which was only the second show they'd played together. Since then, they've played numerous venues around Denver, including The Roxy Theater, The Oriental Theater, Casselman's, and many more. They've had radio interviews with Mile High Underground and Music Buzz Live Radio, and their music has been played on several internet radio stations as well as local stations 93.3, 94.3 and 107X.

They have been asked many times where they came up with the name for their band. Vermillion Road is an actual road just north of where they used to practice in Longmont, Colorado. This represents more than just a name for them, it's a metaphor for the journey they're currently on and they look forward to wherever this road may take them.
