Join us at the Avon Performance Pavilion in Harry A. Nottingham Park for another exciting performance at AvonLIVE! on Wednesday, August 3rd starting at 5:00 p.m. Denver based band, Dragondeer performs at 7:00 p.m. with a blend of psychedelic blues, retro funk, soul and rock-n-roll.
Denver band Dragondeer has conjured the rhythm spirits to concoct a blend of psychedelic blues, retro funk, soul, and rock-n-roll into a genre blur that's aim is to speak to souls and keep the body moving. Four good friends that brew a musical alchemy that is song centric with a proclivity to stretch things out and see where the evening leads. Heard across radio waves, through the trees at festivals like Electric Forrest, Firefly, and Telluride Blues this band keeps growing and morphing and wants you in on the ride.
Dragondeer has had the pleasure to share the stage with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Marcus King, The Revivalists, Shakey Graves, Southern Avenue, Dumpstaphunk, Drive By Truckers, Anders Osbourne, and Jerry Joseph.
"Dragondeer hit the stage with their thick blues-rock sound. Reminiscent of early Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, and electric Taj Mahal, the quartet stunned the audience with their hybrid of Mississippi Delta blues and 1960s psychedelic rock. Lead vocalist, guitarist and harmonica player Eric Halborg led the band with a rare ferocity, his deep growl and swampy harmonica blending perfectly with Cole Rudy’s raw pedal steel playing. Shocking many in attendance and quickly catapulting onto the Denver scene, Dragondeer is a growing force to be reckoned with." - Live For Live Music
Opening for Dragondeer is the Beau Thomas Band. Beau Thomas and his crew bring soul, R&B, and hip hop to the Colorado High Country! Up-tempo arrangements and strong soulful vocals are the backbone to the project, which formed in 2018. Based in Summit County CO, the BTB delivers high energy soul renditions of pop, rock, hip hop, soul, & even country hits from then & now. With an original catalog heavily influenced by Motown & Memphis Soul, contemporary R&B, and even underground hip hop, Beau Thomas (lead vocals & guitar), Jeffery Smith (keys), Austin Dreher (sax), Max Engelman (bass), Cody Palmer and Mike Bahr(drums) form a sound that is extremely unique to the region! Each member pulling from varied genres adds to the endless versatility of the arrangements!
