Demi Demitro (of the Velveteers)
The Velveteers are an American Rock outfit that is the epiphany of punk with the aggressive sound and grungy wisdom that transcends through the Siren like power of Demi Demitro's (frontwomen/lead guitar) voice. Through the distorted guitar riffs and thunderous drums they lure their audience with vibes that come right out of a classic horror flick.
Benom Plumb can usually be found teaching music industry courses at CU Denver, blogging about music industry news or playing drums supporting other artists on stage. He's now bringing a collection of new rock and roll songs live to audiences with his new band, Professor Plumb. The band is comprised of Benom Plumb (songs, vocals, bass and sometimes drums), John Dimetro (guitars), Alex Bailey (bass, yes, two basses!) and Ben Hatch (drums and keys). The band brings high energy rock with a taste of punk, blues and classic rock elements. Professor Plumb is set to release a series of three EP's in 2018 and has released a sample track titled, "Midnight Creep" on BandCamp.(https://professorplumb.bandcamp.com/releases).
Two Faces West
Two Faces West is a crankin' electric blues band that was founded in the small, beautiful mountain town of Gunnison, Colorado. They established a tight power trio over their years at Western State Colorado University, with a goal of sharing their unique rockin’ mountain sound with the world. In the Fall of 2015, the trio relocated to the mile high city, where they have burst into the Denver music scene.
Within a year of their move to the front range, they have performed at several major festivals including FIBArk in Salida, The Greeley Blues Jam, the Denver Underground Music Showcase, Kansas' annual Tumbleweed Festival, and have become one of Denver’s premier live bands! Their music is described as a fiery blend of rock & blues, which focuses on the roots of blues while expressing its core in pure rock’n’roll, and topping it off with a touch of funk.
