Gasoline Lollipops is a Colorado band that combines the sincerity of dirt-floor folk with the energy and rebelliousness of punk. It’s an all-new incarnation of alt-country that’s both high energy and heartfelt, like the American highway’s soundtrack.

Denver Westword awarded Gasoline Lollipops "Best Country Artist" in 2016 and 2018, and the group - which released the debut album Resurrection in February 2017 and followed it with Soul Mine just 11 months later - won the 2014, 2015 and 2017 Colorado Daily reader's polls for "Best Boulder Band."

The GasPops have shared stages with such respected artists as Lucero, Dale Watson, Todd Snider, Slim Cessna's Auto Club and others. They've also been on the bills of numerous great live-music festivals, including Divide Festival; Salmonfest Alaska; NedFest; Bohemian Nights @ New West Fest; the Denver Post's Underground Music Showcase; BrewGrass; YarmonyGrass; Higher Ground Music Festival; Westword Music Showcase; Empire Americana; FoCoMX; Frozen Dead Guy Days; and the highly anticipated Grandoozy Festival.

**Clay Rose and his mother, Donna Farar, whose songs have been hit singles for country singers such as Willie Nelson and Chris Stapleton, will join forces during the Gasoline Lollipops set. Farar has written several Gasoline Lollipops songs. Rose and Farar are working on writing and recording their first-ever album together. **

The River Arkansas

Mike Clark is a Colorado native living on the banks of the Arkansas River in Pueblo. In the winter of 2014, he penned a collection of songs about heartbreak, love, and escaping the clutches of day-to-day society. The following spring, Clark decided to make that collection into a record. By good fortune Macon Terry, a bass player and former member of the band Paper Bird, happened to be in the neighborhood the day the studio was booked for recording. Though Terry arrived not knowing any of the songs, what they captured was the beginning of something great. Later they would add Robin Chestnut on drums, Rachel Sliker on violin, and Benjamin Gallagher on piano. Now preparing to release their third studio album "Any Kind of Weather" the band has hit their stride, traveling the midwest, south, and western United States as well as playing festivals all across Colorado, delivering their distinctive mixture of Country, Blues, Folk and Americana.

"The River Arkansas is made up of the evocative lyric writing and the penetrating vocal talent of Mike Clark, smoky upbeat jazz club bass playing by Macon Terry, Mozart-meets-wagon-train fiddle playing by Rachel Sliker, drumming reminiscent of Keith Moon's form by Robin Chestnut, and The Doors-style keys by Ben Gallagher. The River Arkansas hail from various towns in Colorado and have two albums under their belt. Clark's lyrics cover the joys and pitfalls of love, life, and the oddball bike theft, with each song channeling power to drastically change the mood of the room."- Lou Flesh, No Depression Magazine

"The sound of this band is absolutely at home at any mountain festival, but don’t assume it to be another one-trick folk pony. No way. This’ll play in the city." -Stubborn Sounds
