Proud to be firmly installed in 2012′s new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution “NU-SION”, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making funk fusion music “cool” again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters, Weather Report, & Mahavishnu Orchestra, and merges those ideas with technical fireworks and a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. The ensemble, a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam, is currently touring in support of their eponymous debut album. The powerhouse quintet’s live show has been described by critics and fans of Galactic & Umphrey’s McGee alike as “lethal funk”, “explosive”, “jaw dropping”, and “musically mesmerizing”. For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: ENTER THE DRAGON!
Juno What?! is a shameless dance party... Formed in 2008, the band has quickly become the leading practitioner of high-energy disco booty jams, and live electro-funk. ..

This is a force to be reckoned with. .. The band consists of Joey Porter (keyboards, talk box) and Dave Watts (drums, samples) from the Motet, and Steve Watkins (keyboards, talk box, bass).

From the non-theoretical minds of Paul Hamilton, Joe Lane and Erik Diaz comes a new brand of Rock n Roll that few have heard before. With influences such as Phish, Yes, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, and Mahavishnu Orchestra, pH Factor proudly brings you a fusion of styles from jazz, rock, progressive, funk, jam, and nuances of sound yet to be classified. The concept of pH Factor came into fruition from a basic idea, an idea that the anatomical perception of nature can be broken into music. Fueled to submerge our listeners into a storyline that bridges the gap of consciousness between each other and the world around us, we are enabled to harbor genuine illumination as we manifest our music. Born in Ohio raised in Colorado, pH Factor is proud to call Denver home. The eclectic music scene of Colorado has nourished the new sounds and creativity of this power trio. Through the journey to find what is now the sound of pH Factor, many combinations of instrumentation have been exhausted, yet nothing filled the void quite like the organic sound of guitar, bass, and drums. We encourage you to stay tuned for pH Factor's first studio album "Chemical Nature" expected in the first quarter of 2012.
