The Breckenridge Spring Fever Beer Festival will host live music throughout the event from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. hosted by KSMT The Mountain on the Breckenridge Market & Liquor Stage. Below are the confirmed bands:
3:30 p.m. – Tatanka
Homegrown in Denver Colorado, Tatanka is a quartet specializing in the sounds of dub, progressive reggae, dancehall, and electro soundscapes. Heavy Caribbean drum and bass grooves provide the pulse for the party as the music invites you to get down and dirty. In March of 2010, this group of Denver dub samurais released their first studio E.P. entitled Sounds in Technicolor. Sounds in Technicolor has reached over 10,000 downloads through Tatanka’s website and social networking sites. The pulsing basslines provided by Tatanka’s Malonestar seem to rock the mind into trance while Champian’s guitar work and The Mexico’s hi-hat, snare and kick drum 4/4 playing styles pepper over the top of the album’s four track’s almost flawlessly. Dub Rock Syndicate recently gave the boys the title “the up and coming kings of dubtronic”.
Tatanka has shared the stage with many major national and international acts that include but are not limited to: Eoto, Slightly Stoopid, The Motet, Easy Star All-Stars, The Black Seeds, John Brown’s Body, The Expendables, Groundation, Iration, Passafire, Stick Figure and more. Tatanka has now been touring for over three years and CHAMPIAN, MALONE★, NASTY NATE, and THE MEXICO are all determined to bring the dub madness to a city near you!
1:30 p.m. Mr. J and the Smooth Expressions–
If you don’t think you can dance to every genre of music from the last 50 years, then you haven’t experienced Mr. J & the Smooth Expressions, Denver’s ultimate variety band with a twist. Mr. J brings a unique blend of high-energy danceable music that will get even the most introverted music snob shaking his or her booty. Weddings, corporate events, bar mitzvahs, and galas are just a few formats in which Mr. J delivers a knock out punch that takes the event to the next level. If you’re ready to be the hero of the party, just tell people you booked Mr J & the Smooth Expressions, and let the band bring it home.
12:00 p.m. Jimkata
Jimkata’s innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital turned heads of critics, musicians and fans when it dropped late in the Fall of 2012, solidifying the band’s reputation as a forward-thinking artist to pay attention to. Having been a mainstay of the Northeast “jam circuit” for years, Jimkata’s refined “electro rock” sound– one of a band that has found it’s voice after years of experimentation– is in many ways more “indie rock” than jam, more 90′s dance than EDM, more lyrical than instrumental, yet the band manages to keep the jam, EDM and technically advanced instrumental elements intact as it carves out a new path for themselves and many of their peers who were inspired by Die Digital. Jimkata’s relevant, quotable lyrics create moods not just for the fleeting moments, but for the lifestyle of an entire generation, and the sum of the music and songwriting appeals to fans of artists like MGMT, LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads and the best of the ’90′s pop-rock world. A staple of the festival circuit from the Rockies to the Atlantic, Jimkata’s 2013 festival schedule includes heavy hitters like Summer Camp (Chillicothe, IL) and Gathering of The Vibes (Bridgeport, CT) amongst the strong regional events that fuel an artist’s growth.
Jimkata will be playing at the Breckenridge Spring Fever beer Festival After Party at Three20South. Get details here!
