The Dewey Paul Band

9:00PM 11:59PM

Dewey Paul Band is an Americana rock group from the Denver, Colorado area. The band blends soulful folk/singer-songwriter styles with elements of jam-band, blues, and a modern version of that classic rock sound resulting in a unique, original, Roots-Rock-Americana music experience.

Heavily influenced by the writings of Bob Dylan, J.J. Cale, and Jackson Browne, Moffitt tends to refer to his musical offerings as ‘lyrically driven’. His artistic passions are mostly derived from living a well-traveled life on the road. He spent many years as a nomadic Deadhead before the band’s biggest promoter, Bill Graham, hired him to work behind the scenes in the early ’90’s. That spawned a career in the live concert business eventually gaining Moffitt respect as a festival producer and audio engineer.

Having played the guitar since the early age of 9, Moffitt’s passion for writing songs and performing has never wained. He’s regularly invited to sit in on all-star jam sessions and has participated as a guest musician on annual reenactments of The Band’s famous Last Waltz Concert. He also produces an annual charity event which celebrates the songs of Bob Dylan while benefiting music in Colorado public schools. Hundreds of Denver area musicians have participated in the annual charity event along with legendary Jerry Garcia Band keyboardist Melvin Seals. A side project was soon formed: an All-Star Bob Dylan cover group, Postcards Of The Hanging, which he co-founded and performs with.

Moffitt was born a fourth generation native of Coshocton, Ohio, but has since adopted many other hometowns throughout his journey such as Boca Raton, Florida, Oakland, California, Gainesville, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, Lawrence, Kansas, and most recently Denver, Colorado. In Denver he spent over six years as audio engineer at the Pepsi Center working closely with the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, NBA’s Denver Nuggets, AFL’s Colorado Crush and NLL’s Colorado Mammoth in addition to being a festival director for Denver’s LODO music festivals.

Dewey Paul Band have three CD releases, “Cale (A Tribute To J.J. Cale)” (2011), “Ancient Heart” (2009), and “On The Devil’s Highway” (2008). 2011’s Cale actually features Moffitt performing all the instruments himself, ala Todd Rundgren style, in the world’s first and only solo tribute album to legendary Tulsa blues musician J.J. Cale (After Midnight, They Call Me the Breeze, Cocaine, etcetera). The project was also completely funded by fans through the crowdsourcing website Pledge Music. Prior to Dewey Paul Band, Moffitt had released five CDs with his earlier band Dewey Decibel System between 1995 and 2007.

WhiskeyGrass Wednesdays featuring Blow the Vault

9:00PM 11:59PM

Blow the Vault is a most ferocious cast of prairie-billy stompers. “A runaway train on fire”, this band brings a head-on, roots music cocktail shaken with a bluegrass tempo and stirred with a hard edge.

This Americana band with DNA inspired by folk, bluegrass and punk rock has a classical music pedigree, fronted by fiddle virtuoso Emily Rose Lewis, and Kevin Eisemann, who mesmerizes with his lightning-fast, flat-picking twerkin’ solos. Vocally, the pair wraps their harmonies around the raw themes of lost love, drinking, revenge and murder. Woven through the melodies, you won’t miss the deft banjo picking of Kyle Moyer, Dan Steinberg’s silky smooth chocolate beats, Jim Cressman’s thumping bass, and Bill Moore’s driving rhythms on the guitar and bass drum.

Based in Denver, CO, Blow the Vault members come from the far reaches of the country: Kansas, Kentucky, Connecticut, Maryland, North Carolina, and one lone Rocky Mountain representative, to blend a sound that is truly Americana.

WhiskeyGrass Wednesdays Featuring Coal Town Reunion

9:00PM 11:59PM

Sopris was a coal town in the Purgatory River Valley in southern Colorado. The story of the west brought booms and busts and Sopris was no exception. The town was flooded and a dam took its place. Though the folks were forced to leave their homes behind, they never lost the spirit of the coal town. They reunite and celebrate every couple years, coming from all corners, just like they did when the town was incorporated. Coal Town Reunion was formed in this spirit.

CTR is influenced by the road that brought them here, from the songs of the mountains and the lakes, to the grit of the south and the west. Coal Town Reunion is Chris Spurlock on mandolin, Jeff Montoya on bass, John-Paul Maxfield on guitar, and Sami Steidl on fiddle.

Shine up your shoes. There’s a Coal Town Reunion.
