Caleb Dean Band
Caleb Dean Band is a straight up Traditional Western Swing Country Band and performs songs from legends Hank Williams, Waylon, Haggard, Bob Wills, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, and Chris LeDoux just to mention a few.
If Patsy Cline, Bob Wills, Hank Williams and Loretta Lynn were all sitting at a table together listening to Leslie Tom sing, they would be grinning from Greeley to Music City because of what they were hearing. This Texas native now living in Denver is the epitome of traditional country music with lyrics of cheating hearts, love lost and found.
Jimmy Snowden, Dennis Ward, Steve Harding, Nat Waterman, Rob Labig and Steven Wendall Johnson are Colorado boys who have come together to put a little fire in the music scene with their own brand of “Rockin’ Country Music”.

Hailing from Siler City, NC, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Clint White on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads.
Nueva Generacion Folklorico
Folk dance group Nueva Generación Folklorico has about 50 dancers under 12 that learn about their culture, tradition, and poise. The traditional folklorico dresses are Spanish in style, but indigenous Mexicans added the bright colors with different states associated with different colors. The dancers’ favorite part about dancing is making people happy.
Ponder the Albatross

They are an experimental Folk/Rock/Grass band with a variance of Fiddle, Drums, Bass, and Mandolin/Guitar depending on the song. Ponder the Albatross is a very original, and high energy band with original songs from reggae to trippy instrumental to folk/rock to bluegrass.
