Genre:
Doors: 6:00PM

Decades of Love began as a tool to heal the broken heart of the founder, Sia Chandler-Garcia. In 2009, Sia had already gone through a divorce and needed some healing for her broken heart. She prayed about how to receive the healing and the answer came through song. The creative vision came also as a vehicle of giving. After running the idea of singing songs of LOVE starting from the 1920’s and 30’s to the present day time frame, by her family and some of her friends, Sia launched her journey of putting together a band. The Decades Band has been together for 6 years! We are from all walks of life. We have educators, web-designers, nurses, retired teachers, Regional Transportation District bus drivers, and Denver Motor Vehicle employees represented in the band. Every year we come together to raise money for Non-Profit organizations. Our goal is to give back, because we truly understand how helping others makes our lives better.

New Year's Eve! Cracker & Camper Van Beethoven

Genre: Rock
Doors: 8:00PM
Show: 9:00PM

Cracker Website

Camper Van Beethoven Website

Alt-rock icons Cracker have signed with 429 Records and have unleashed a collection of new songs, SUNRISE IN THE LAND OF MILK AND HONEY. Long-time musical cohorts David Lowery and Johnny Hickman have teamed up again with drummer Frank Funaro and bassist Sal Maida and along with stellar producer David Barbe (Drive By Truckers), have created a uniquely eclectic trove of new tunes. Well-worn words used to describe their sound—brash, irreverent, sharp-witted, anthemic and riveting—all descriptives are in full-effect on the new project that bursts with their trademark rock, punk, glam, surf and country aesthetic. Friends John Doe, Patterson Hood and Adam Duritz also make spirited guest turns on SUNRISE... Taking a new approach to their creative process, SUNRISE IN THE LAND OF MILK AND HONEY is a truly collaborative effort for the band. Suprisingly self-disciplined, the whole band would take time out to write together one week every two months between tours over the course of a year. Focusing on a goal of two songs per day, their individual musical influences combined in refreshing and distinctive ways. On the outside it was a straight ahead work ethic, but the process resulted in the band clicking creatively with a renewed energy. Says Lowery: “We weren’t kicking back on an island in the Caribbean, waiting for the muse to hit us. We got down to work, found the punk and glam rock in our blood and woke up to Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey.”

Back in the day, before alternative rock was invented and indie rock was still shy of roots music and other folk elements, Camper Van Beethoven's merging of punk, folk, ska, and world music was truly a revelation. Singer/songwriter David Lowery's smart-aleck lyrics, delivered in laid-back California style, combined with Jonathan Segel's violin as lead instrument, were the band's instant trademarks. Decades after their inception, CVB's sound is still remarkably fresh and their influence on alternative music undeniable and resounding.

Chris Knight

Genre: Americana/Acoustic
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. Won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 15 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career that’s been hailed as “where Cormac McCarthy meets Copperhead Road”, Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. And on record – as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls – his songs have had plenty to say. But with his new album Little Victories, Chris Knight has taken the discussion to a whole new level. His first album of new material in 4 years, Little Victories is a record of blunt honesty, elegiac truths and the raw rural poetry of an artist who’s come into his own and intends to stay. And for a performer who’s been compared over the years to Cash, Prine, Earle and Nebraska-era Springsteen, Knight now stands alone as a singer/songwriter that has carved his own idiosyncratic sound and sensibility out of the dirt road American dream. Little Victories not only sounds like a Chris Knight album, but the best Chris Knight album yet.

Tickets on sale 11/29 at 10AM! The Black Lillies

Genre: Alt Country
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

After co-founding Robinella and the CCstringband with his wife, he spent nearly a decade traveling the road and making music from coast to coast. When his marriage — and the band — dissolved in 2007, he returned to the road . . . this time as the driver of a truck for a stone company. It was then, over the course of a year spent rolling down the highways of East Tennessee, that the songs and sounds that would form the nexus of The Black Lillies were conceived. And Runaway Freeway Blues, the band’s third studio album, was realized exactly there . . . on the road. When the Lillies weren’t playing their 200-odd gigs over the course of the year, they were in Wild Chorus Studio in their hometown of Knoxville, Tenn., working with Scott Minor of Sparklehorse to craft a beautiful ode to restless spirits and rambling hearts. Rooted in the mud-rutted switchbacks of Appalachia, Runaway Freeway Blues is the sound of a band that’s becoming something of a phenomenon across the country. In its initial months of release, the album received many press raves. According to Vanity Fair, “With one foot planted firmly in Appalachian music culture and the other always expanding and evolving, the Black Lillies have created a unique sound embraced by fans old and young.” American Songwriter stated, “a release this strong and diverse will surely increase the miles on the act’s van and help secure them a place as one of roots music’s most talented outfits.” The Wall Street Journal noted its “rootsy flair, mixing folk, honky-tonk country and gospel into a winsome hybrid traditional enough to appeal to an Opry crowd and expansive enough to ensnare a broader audience.” Paste said that “The Black Lillies continue their tradition of excellence with Runaway Freeway Blues.” And CMT Edge observed, “The Black Lillies hail from a variety of different roots, rock and country backgrounds. They’ve made a habit of casting an even wider stylistic net on each of their three albums, including the latest, Runaway Freeway Blues. That, and the fact they’ll do just about anything it takes to get a crowd dancing, is why they’re the rarer-than-rare independent band that’s made no fewer than 30 appearances on the venerable Grand Ole Opry and played wildly eclectic festivals like Bonnaroo and South by Southwest.”

The Rising Star Showcase Willie Bradley The Trumpeter with Heart 'N' Soul

Genre: Jazz
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Willie Bradley was in the midst of recording a project with his contemporary jazz/funk band Essential Elements when an extraordinary opportunity to do a solo project inspired him to take his career in a new direction. The Fayetteville, NC-based trumpeter with 'Heart 'N' Soul' invited several young urban jazz sensations, including saxophonist Marcus Anderson and keyboardist Nicholas Cole, to join him for one his regular gigs at the Holiday Inn. From that encounter, a collaboration with Nicholas Cole has produced 10 edgy, urban jazz flavored tracks which are the essence of Willie Bradley's solo debut, 'Another Day & Time'. Bradley features a cast of respected players including saxmen Jeff Kashiwa and Marcus Anderson, guitarist Kay-Ta Matsuno and bassist John Dillard. The title track single was well received earlier this year at radio and the current single, Bradley's interpretation of the Bobby Caldwell classic 'What You Won't Do For Love', gets a boost from fellow trumpeter Lin Rountree and is most added on the Billboard, Groove Jazz and Smooth Jazz.com radio charts. This rising star has deep roots in jazz, having performed with icons including Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, Max Roach, Betty Carter and Nat Adderley among others. Bradley's total command of his instrument is also evident onstage with RJ & The Original James Brown Band. Referring to the pairing as "a unique generation gap between an artist emerging into the spotlight after many years...and a dynamic teen who is way ahead of his time, Willie Bradley and Nicholas Cole truly represent Another Day & Time in contemporary jazz – one every fan of the genre will want to experience.” – Jonathan Widran

Chieli Minucci & Special EFX

Genre: Jazz
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Few bands in contemporary jazz have been as entertaining and artistically satisfying as Special EFX. Spearheaded by guitarist Chieli Minucci and co-founded by the late percussionist George Jinda (whose untimely passing came in 2001) in 1983, Special EFX helped to pave the road for contemporary jazz during its early years in the 80s and they continue to set the standard. As Special EFX embarks on its third decade as torchbearers of innovative and inspiring instrumental music, Chieli Minucci reflects on the band’s longevity in the music business. "One of the reasons we have been able to maintain our popularity is because we have evolved and changed over the years. When the band first started we had a heavy world music influence. Later we highlighted more of an acid-jazz sound, as well as some progressive fusion-rock thrown in for good measure. When people hear our music, they can expect to hear a little of everything!”

Celtic Events Presents Alan Doyle Band

Genre: Rock
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

Alan Doyle, actor, producer, newly­minted best­selling author, and best­known as lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, is set to release his second solo album, So Let’s Go, on January 20. Title-­track lead single So Let’s Go, is a rousing rallying cry that’s only further proof of Doyle’s ability to draw the listener under his banner. Equally adept at drawing a crowd, Doyle will be embarking on a North American tour upon album release. Made in collaboration with Thomas ‘Tawgs’ Salter (Lights, Walk Off The Earth), Jerrod Bettis (Adele, Serena Ryder), Gordie Sampson (Keith Urban, Willie Nelson), and Joe Zook (OneRepublic, Katy Perry), the album follows Doyle’s first solo outing, Boy On Bridge, released in 2012. “If there’s an over-­arching theme on this record, it’s one of optimism…not that this is in contrast to my previous doom­laden songs!” laughs Doyle, who says this album is freer than Boy On Bridge in the respect of being open to all influences. “On my last solo record I wanted to explore musical backyards of friends of mine in different parts of the musical world. It was as much a physical as a musical journey away from home. On So Let’s Go, folks will hear much more stuff from my backyard and all the traditional and Celtic influences I grew up with, married with the most contemporary collaborators out there.” A non-traditional marriage for Doyle was writing his first book simultaneously with the album, the best-­selling memoir Where I Belong, released last month. The album’s eponymous song is consistent with Alan Doyle’s ethos: we’re lucky to be here so let’s make the most of it. This spirit also infuses the heartfelt Take Us Home while Sins of a Saturday Night celebrates a come­-what-­may approach. The album also gets reflective in moments, such as the plaintive Laying Down To Perish, inspired by a visit to Fogo Island. As a whole, So Let’s Go remains consistent with Alan Doyle’s enthusiasm for the wider world combined with a love for the comfort of home. Alan Doyle hails from Petty Harbour, NL, and formed Great Big Sea in 1993 with Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, in which they fused traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double-­disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada. So Let’s Go continues to cement Alan Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.”

Johnette Napolitano (of Concrete Blonde) with Flamenco Underground

Genre: Rock/Acoustic
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Best known for her work as lead singer and bassist in the '80s and early-'90s alternative rock trio Concrete Blonde, Johnette Napolitano is also a poet, social activist, soundtrack composer, and sculptor. Born in Hollywood on September 22, 1957, Napolitano lurked on the fringes of the Los Angeles punk and new wave scene, working at the legendary Gold Star Studios until she formed the duo Dream 6 with guitarist Jim Mankey. The pair recorded a self-titled 1982 EP produced by Jim's brother Earle Mankey (like Jim, a former member of the first lineup of Sparks, and at the time one of the hottest producers on the L.A. new wave scene), which attracted the attention of IRS Records boss Miles Copeland. With a new drummer in Chicago transplant Harry Rushakoff and a new name supposedly bestowed by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe that was supposed to connote the band's mix of hard and soft elements, Concrete Blonde released their self-titled debut in 1987. This was quickly followed by Free, Bloodletting (featuring the group's biggest hit, "Joey"), Walking in London, and Mexican Moon, before Concrete Blonde split in 1995. Napolitano then moved on to two short-lived projects, Vowel Movement (a collaboration with Holly Beth Vincent of Holly & the Italians) and Pretty & Twisted (with the late Marc Moreland, formerly of Wall of Voodoo), as well as occasional Concrete Blonde reunion albums. Following this, Napolitano began a second career as soundtrack composer for small and medium-budget indie films such as Wicker Park and Underworld. She also released a pair of largely improvised and mostly electronic albums, Sketchbook and Sketchbook 2, in 2002 and 2006. Johnette Napolitano's first proper solo album, Scarred, followed in the spring of 2007. ~ Stewart Mason
