Our own little outdoor #MusicFestival has sold out the last four years. Foco Cafe’s 6th annual Bike-In Festival on July 23 promises to keep your feet dancing to new local music while children* get their faces painted and your #bike** gets repaired on-site. Good food, good beer, good music. #FamilyFun. Plus a #LiveAuction of desserts so you can take home something sweet!
Here’s the line-up:
Opening with Conrad Pierce, a producer from Fort Collins. The music he produces is very vibey and perfect for laying back and chilling out. His sound incorporates tribal and experimental beats along with layers of upbeat production. Find his music here.
“Having the opportunity to play our first gig as a band at this festival is a huge honor. We’re really looking forward to seeing the community come together, enjoy the outdoors, and enjoy some fine music. It should be a great time,” said Sean, GBR’s mandolin player.
“This is GBR’s first gig as a band, and I’m real excited to be pickin’ some bluegrass with these cats,” said Sean Fazzini of House With A Yard. “I’m very grateful to be doing what I love alongside so many great people and musicians. Thanks to everyone that plans to come, and everyone that can’t. I’ll see ya out there folks!”
theKITYproject is a new Front Range Folkadelic-Blues band based out of Fort Collins. This 5-piece ensemble features soulful harmonies, infectious melodies, and rhythms that beg to be danced. Influenced by Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Bill Withers, Say Anything, Mike Love, Bright Eyes, and many more.
“Fantastic event! We love any opportunity to play outdoors, just the feeling of big open spaces seems to agree with music. Bonus points for more dancing space. Better yet we get to play in support of a fantastic community resource like FoCo Cafe, so far as I can see, it’s everything I could ever want in a show!” said theKITYproject.
Good Gravy is a modern approach to American roots music or Americana, inspired by String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Leftover Salmon. Bluegrass, rock, folk, electronic, jazz, and even calypso.
Conrad Pierce 2:00pm – 2:50pm
Grass Blue Rhythm 3:10pm – 4:00pm
The KITY Project 4:20pm – 5:10pm
Good Gravy! 5:30pm – 7:00pm
Guaranteed to throw down everything from psychedelic dance beats to slamming bluegrass, this improvisational contemporary band takes acoustic songwriting to new and exciting realms. Good Gravy is said to “melt the heart, as well as the face.”
