Shakedown Street

Website | Facebook | Twitter | Video

One of the longest running Grateful Dead tribute bands in the world, Shakedown Street, makes its home in and around the Rocky Mountain region of North America. Spawned from jam sessions at the Ancient Mariner bar in Manitou Springs, Colorado in 1987, Shakedown Street quickly grew in popularity, and garnered a legion of loyal fans who refer to themselves as "Shakeheads". In a few short years, throngs of "Shakeheads" could be found on the highways and byways of the Rocky Mountains, making their way to another Shakedown Street show.

In the live music venues of the Rocky Mountains, there are only a few bands that are able to consistently draw large audiences. Shakedown Street accomplishes this year after year by embodying the Grateful Dead ethos of improvisation and discovery, while maintaining an intimacy and open repoire with its audience. A whole new generation of "Shakeheads" has discovered the positive and collaborative energy found at a Shakedown Street concert. Longtime fans are thrilled to find the band sounding hotter than ever, and having the time of their lives!

U.S. Tygers

Originally conceived by Denver songwriter Alex Dalton as a vehicle for his original honky-tonk and folk songs, U.S. Tygers quickly moved beyond the boundaries these genres, turning up their electric guitars and developing an adventurous approach to country-rock music. Continuing down a path forged by The Byrds, New Riders of the Purple Sage, and the Flying Burrito Brothers, their songs are built for dancing, with introspective and engaging lyrics that will compel you to sing along.

With the recent addition of singer-songwriter Erika Ryann to the group, her songs, voice, and unique finger-style guitar have taken on an integral role in U.S. Tygers' sound. The band has been working throughout 2018 on new material for the stage and upcoming recordings.
