Euforquestra – High intensity Global Dance Music (Fort Collins, CO)

Originally from Iowa City, IA, Eufórquestra (pronounced: yoo • FOHR • keh • struh, think Euphoria+Orchestra) relocated to Fort Collins, CO in August 2008 and has made a splash on the Colorado music scene with a relentless tour schedule and a live show that leaves feet tired and hearts and minds happy. The band is known for their diverse sound and eclectic repertoire, covering a number of traditional and progressive sounds ranging from (but not limited to) reggae, dub, afrobeat and samba to ska, highlife, funk and jazz.

In October 2009 the band released Soup, a collection of 11 tracks that captures the band at new heights in terms of songwriting, energy and production. In an effort to spread the album far and wide as an independent artist, the band has decided to give the album away for free online at www.euforquestra.com. With over 2,000 downloads in its first month the word is spreading!

+ Gypsy Lumberjacks – Non traditional Bluegrass/World/Americana (Minneapolis, MN)

The Gypsy Lumberjacks are a band based out of Minneapolis, MN. They debuted as the Lumberjacks in the summer of 2008 at the Bella Sol Music Festival. The year previous to this show was spent on various stages around Minneapolis performing as a nameless, creative force directed at creating fresh sounds with an open mind towards what defines a melody. By the summer of 2008 the group settled on the name Gypsy Lumberjacks and hit the road. They have been touring regularly ever since. Initially, Gypsy Lumberjacks was a name known only to those familiar with the Midwest festival circuit. However, through constant travel their circuit now
reaches fans in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, as well as the greater Midwest area.

The Lumberjacks are proficient at exploring new spaces with their respective instruments while at the same time incorporating solidly constructed songs. Their live show is based largely on improvisation and as a result many of the songs change with time and take on new elements over the year. Their influences stem from a mix of Americana, Flamenco, Gypsy Jazz and Bluegrass resulting in a very danceable, warm sound.
