Pandas & People
Pandas & People may call Colorado home, but the music transcends geological borders. Since the band’s inception, founding member Joshua Scheer has carried the torch, attracting the attention of famed artists, diehard fans, and national radio, all in a matter of a couple years. With a unique sound blending traditional folk and hook laden songwriting, P&P’s recorded material continues to become more eclectic with each release.

Their latest single, “Find You,” showcases a new venture into the alternative rock realm, crafting an earnest and personal blend of sound, with gripping melodies, moving lyrics and edgy rhythms sections, or as 9 News in Denver describes it, “music that actually makes you smile….and dance with your iPhone as if you’re starring in an Apple commercial”. Currently working with Warner/Chappell producer and songwriter, Zac Maloy, the excitement is building for their debut album release set for the fall of 2017.

The group’s blend of indie pop and folk bridges the subtle gap between energy and introspection, with lyrics that are warm, uplifting and joyful, yet personal and insightful. Pandas & People debuted in late 2013 with their single “On My Way”, and went on to play shows frequently, including opening for well-known acts like Twenty One Pilots, The Doobie Brothers, The Oh Hellos and more. The band also received several accolades, including being named “Best New Artist” by the The Colorado Sound, “Best Folk Band in Colorado” by Westword Magazine in 2016 and have placed in the top 3 for 93.3 KTCL’s renowned competition “Hometown for the Holidays” in two of the past three years. With singles “On My Way” and “Find You” hitting the top 10 in the Denver Metro Shazam charts, they’ve also found their way to regular airplay from iHeart Radio stations in both Colorado and New Jersey.

The live band is accompanied by Conrad Marshall, Tucker Ewing, Dave Brown and Adam Haag, bringing an energetic and moving live performance to the stage, urging their audience to experience “the moments in between”. As a whole, the band continues to thrive not only in the Colorado music scene, but all over the country, with fans latching on to that unique energetic folk music with a twist.
HERESTOFIGHTIN is an indie folk band hailing from Denver, CO. HTF screams the reinvention of traditional folk roots, to tell the story of young, and eager muscians.
Arwen & the Mega Reset
Arwen & the Mega Reset
Fronted by the powerful, smooth vocals of musical-theater trained singer Arwen Fonzen, Arwen & the Mega Reset creates funk-rock jams and R&B ballads with equal enthusiasm and poetry.

A&tMR formed in the spring of 2015, shortly after Arwen and the drummer (Levi) got hitched. They somehow convinced Levi's best friend Eric to spend copious amounts of time jamming with them on electric guitar. When bassist and head producer Sven joined the band in August of 2015, they decided their indie pop rock project needed a bit of a reset, and the band was officially named.

Since then, A&tMR has released two EP's Arcadia Street Sessions Vol. I & II, and their latest single "Get Your Gold" (All available on Itunes, Spotify, and Bandcamp). They have played at numerous clubs in Denver and Colorado Springs, and look forward to expanding their reach in the future to the rest of the state, and eventually the entire world!
