Musketeer Gripweed
Musketeer Gripweed
The Fort Collins-based, blues-fusion band Musketeer Gripweed simply explodes onstage with the energy and fervor of a revival preacher out to save a filthy sinner’s soul. This group of highly accomplished musicians, however, isn’t about pushing religion – unless your religion is drinking, dancing and some damn good music – they’re about creating “American revival, stomp, shake and holla” music. With a passion influenced by modern and classic rock ‘n’ soul heroes, Musketeer Gripweed creates an extraordinarily powerful live energy, and the band’s “gasoline intense vibe” manifests in spontaneous, uncontrollable dancing and a compulsion to stand up, run to the stage and testify.
Last Call Romance
Last Call Romance
Known for their danceable sound, along with original songs of romance, pain, and heartache, Last Call Romance delivers a blend of Rockabilly-Blues, and Swing. Hailing from Fort Collins, Colorado, their songs are described as having "a vintage feel to it all, without a distinct era to connect it to.” -Blue Suede News Magazine.

The 5-piece band was assembled in the fall of 2015. In the short time they have been together, the band has played numerous Northern Colorado shows and traveled all over the front range including the UMS festival in Denver, the Rockabilly Expo. and KRCC WhatIF festivals in Colorado Springs, and FOCOMX and the Bohemian Nights NewWest Festivals in Fort Collins. The band was also accepted to the prestigious SpokesBUZZ incubator program in 2016. Dawn Duncan, of Scene magazine wrote, "Their old-meets-new style of putting a modern twist on retro-inspired sounds and themes has made them a memorable standout in the music scene here and respected by their musician peers."

The band strives for an old-fashioned vibe that evokes a time when catchy, energetic tunes were heard on a car radio or at the dance hall. Elements of their music are reminiscent of Elvis, Johnny and June, Carl Perkins and Patsy Cline, but with a modern twist. Tabitha Hernandez, of the Examiner.com described their performance as being “A sound straight from days past... this band sang original hits and had the audience cutting a rug; the masses bee-bopped and jived away to the beats."
