Smokestack Relics
Smokestack Relics
Smokestack Relics can only be defined as a dirty swamp rock band.The two brothers sing about livin', lovin', dyin' and the hell down below. The band is stripped down to her bare essentials creating a raw roots feel. When they're not playing in Denver you may find them playing throughout the grand ol' South and Midwest, scrapin up enough cash to make it to the next show with coffee and cigarettes in hand.
Husky Burnette
The Blues are a religion and Brian "Husky" Burnette sho nuff preaches it. You can feel the testimony in his blend of Delta and Hill Country Blues with Rock n Roll. His music is gritty, soulful, southern, low-down and dirty.
Husky, who hails from Chattanooga, TN, has followed in the musical family footsteps of rockabilly kings Johnny and Dorsey Burnette. Husky has written and recorded his own music for years and toured with such greats as Roger Alan Wade, Hank Williams III and more. He has sat in with, recorded with and/or shared the stage with many others such as Leon Russell, T-Model Ford, Kenny Brown, Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Shooter Jennings, Scott H. Biram and J.J. Grey & Mofro.
Husky Burnette signed with Rusty Knuckles record label in 2013 and released his LP "Tales From East End Blvd." the same year. The album featured guest appearances from Shooter Jennings and Grammy nominees Billy Don Burns and Aaron Rodgers, among others. Upon release in August 2013, "Tales From East End Blvd." was well received and spent 23 weeks as a featured album on iTunes as well as New Releases Now and many more. A digital-only single of the song "Amazing Grace" followed in 2014 and in early 2016 we saw Husky's follow-up album for Rusty Knuckles, "Ain't Nothin' But A Revival!", featuring Andy Gibson (Hank Williams III), Col JD Wilkes (Legendary Shack Shakers) and more.
Grant Sabin and the Juke Joint Highball
"Grant Sabin is unquestionably one of the hardest working musicians around, playing with abandon at large and small venues throughout Colorado and beyond. As a solo artist Grant has captivated audiences for years with his raw voice, intense stage presence, and one-man band approach to creating music with slide guitar, harmonica, and stomp box. As a band leader, Grant turns the volume up to 11. The Grant Sabin Band includes, Alex Koshak (Flumps, Sugar Sounds, Briffaut) on Drums, and Sam Erickson (We Are Not A Glum Lot, Briffaut) on 2nd Guitar. Grant Sabin's Musical delivery comes from the heart and has earned him the respect of fans and fellow musicians alike."

- Steve Harris (KRCC)

“Grant Sabin is a unique, talented Blues prodigy. He is steeped in
traditional Blues, well beyond his years.”

- Rick Lewis (103.5 The Fox, Denver)

"Sabin's musical delivery serves as strong reminders that playing
from the heart is clearly an innate process for some folks. He is one
of those rare souls who "just has it". His eclectic approach to the
blues/folk/rock spectrum is honest and convincing. Its great to see
such passion and talent in young musicians. He is quickly on the path
to becoming a musical force."

- Aaron Moreland (Guitar Player, Moreland and Arbuckle)

"Colorado Springs' slide guitar-playing bluesman Grant Sabin is truly a throwback. The multi-instrumentalist's baby face contradicts both his gruff voice and his repertoire, which includes not only his own modern work, but tributes to Son House and Jimi Hendrix, as well."
