The Patti Fiasco
The Patti Fiasco
Jet-fueled by powerhouse front woman Alysia Kraft, The Patti Fiasco rides the edge of emotional extreme, delivering a brash yet fiercely soulful brand of rock and roll with a heavy dose of rockabilly, blues, and ballad. At times raw and volatile, and at others, sweet and lilting, the band fuses a hard-rock swagger with the two-step of its Wyoming roots. It's the attitude of Joan Jett with a Steve Earle twang, the soul and slide of Bonnie Raitt, Black-Keys-style dirty blues-rock, and the lyric edginess of Shovels and Rope.

Kraft's unrelenting energy, inspired songwriting, and vocals "as pure and clean as they are powerful" (Westword) earned her FoCoMA's 2013 Best Front Person award. The dobro, handmade and electrified—literally—by band member and 2007 RockyGrass dobro competition winner Ansel Foxley, builds the band's signature blend of rock, country, and Americana.

Their 2013 release, "Small Town Lights," has garnered multiple accolades, including Wyoming Public Radio's Best Regional Album award, FoCoMA's Best Album award, and high positioning on the Colorado charts. The Patti Fiasco was recently pegged by Paste Magazine as a "Band to Listen to Now."
Mama Lenny & The Remedy
Mama Lenny & The Remedy
Hot, tight, and sassy, Mama Lenny and the Remedy recalls the tradition of the sexy, soulful songbird

backed by a band that looks as good as it sounds. Fronted by the startling vocal and emotional power of

Laniece Schleicher, they deliver a high-energy, bold fusion of soul, funk, rock, blues, and disco with

shrewd hints of jazz, gospel, and Broadway. With infectious energy, the band delves into the joys and

downfalls of love and life, and the sensual pleasures and saucy self-possession that sustain us through

italways with a wink of humor and a witty turn of phrase.

The band is an impeccable synergy of driving rhythms, astute instrumentation, and compelling

harmonies that Scene Magazine calls “unstoppable collaborative chemistry.” It is composed of some of

Northern Colorado’s musical all-stars; Crip Erickson (drums) and Ben Prytherch (bass) deliver a broad

rhythmic vocabulary, from smooth and groovy to hot and hell-bent. Greta Cornett (trumpet), Thalia

Stevenson (keyboard), Kenneth Monks (guitar), and Kelly Keeler (backing vocals) add cunning punch and

texture, creating a rich, bold sound that often verges on the experimental.

Since their start in 2011, Mama Lenny and the Remedy have played some of the most celebrated venues

in Northern Colorado and Wyoming. They have opened for internationally renowned acts Alison Kraus

and the Union Station, The California Honeydrops, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, and the English

Beat, and are widely recognized as one of Colorado’s breakout bands. Download their latest release,
