Highway50
Colorado seems an unlikely origin for reggae music. The distinctive grooves conjure images of beaches and palm trees, not snowy mountains. But Al Laughlin has been challenging that stereotype for almost thirty years.

Al was one of the founding members of a little band you might have heard of – The Samples. The reggae-influenced rock group achieved fame in the 90s, headlining national touring festivals and sharing the stage with the
likes of Phish and Dave Matthews Band. Laughlin co-wrote some of the band's most iconic songs, and his percussive, off-beat reggae keyboard style helped define the band's much-loved sound.

Time moves on and many things change, but Laughlin is still growing and making great music. Collaborating with many of his old Samples bandmates, as well as new blood from the vibrant Colorado music scene, Laughlin has crafted a new sound in Highway 50
– a reggae/jazz/ska jam band named after a lonely road in Utah where Laughlin once ran out of gas.

Highway 50 is a fusion of talent and genres that will have your foot tapping and your head bobbing along within the first few beats. It's a big crew: the band's lineup includes guitarist James Hambleton, drummers Jeep MacNichol (also formally of The Samples), Brian Nevin (of Big Head Todd and the Monsters),
and Sam Young; horn players Andrew McNew, Matt Planer, Rick Demey, and Kyle Etges, and bassists Chris Wright and Tony Soto. Live shows are always an exciting affair.

Highway 50 just released their sophomore album, The Violet Project, following their eponymous debut in 2014. The five-track EP is a compelling and upbeat mix of jazz, pop, and horn-soaked reggae. The band tours extensively throughout Colorado, proving to everyone that the Rocky Mountains can groove along with the best beaches.

The Hashtones
The Hashtones are an American Reggae/Rock, Denver-based band. Formed in July of 2014, this trio can touch different genres of music and make it their own. Every song served presents a behind-the-scenes view of the success’ and failures of Stephen’s life that is skillfully told. From the trials of personal relationships and the angst of growing up, to the struggles of his friends lives, his home life, and major events taking place around the world today. Their music is a journey through the mind of a conflicted yet compassionate soul. The Hashtones love for life, humanity and good times is brilliantly conveyed and displayed first hand at their over the top high-energy live performances. From big muff shredding guitar solos, to deep rolling waves of bass, to the smooth love of a one drop on a drum kit, this band has a little bit to offer for everyone's taste and love for music. The band has some of the regions most talented and experienced musicians, and each member just seems to add the right piece to the puzzle behind every song. A band you don't want to miss if you're in the Front Range area.
Spellbinder
On his lyrical mission, Spellbinder has seen and felt the wrath of the Babylon system in a time when Rasta man or natty dreadlocks man was considered a dangerous and hostile individual, and to this he put a voice. He was inspired to drop musical truth about his love for Jah and his struggle against the system so that all would understand. From behind many microphones he has sung out of respect for all living creatures and for the complete unification of every man & woman of every color and race.
