THE PAMLICO SOUND
The Pamlico Sound, a funk/soul/psychedelic band from Boulder CO, first appeared in September 2010. In a short time they have created a huge local buzz, becoming known as “Boulder’s premier party band” (The Marquee, April 2011) and playing clubs across Colorado’s Front Range. The group displays fierce mastery of the funk and soul genres, dizzying musicianship, and above all a sense of fun and freedom which feeds their audiences’ desire to cut loose and dance.
In their first year, the band performed at Denver's Bluebird Theater, 5 times at Boulder’s Fox Theatre, and at a string of monthly house parties which have become notorious. In 2012, TPS have played the Boulder Theater, Denver's Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom and Oriental Theater, and will be at fave venues and festivals all through the coming seasons and beyond. And at that party. Or is it that other party. Oh, maybe at both.
FROGS GONE FISHIN'
At a Frogs Gone Fishin' show, fans are treated to heavy-hitting rock with the Frog's signature improvisational twist. In an age of auto-tuned vocals and laptop superstars, it's great to find a band who relies on harmonies, strong melody, and dynamic rhythms to keep their fans coming back. On any given night, the Frogs cut across genres and material from their two albums and never, ever, play the same set-list twice. This diversity in song choice and explosive improvisational energy has earned the band enthusiastic and devoted fans from places as far apart as Denver and New Orleans, Chicago and Austin, New York and San Francisco.
In 2009, Frogs Gone Fishin' signed with Colorado-based Mountain Size Records and went into the studio to record Actual Natural, produced and engineered by Brad Smalling. Tracking was completed at Evergroove Studio, a solar-powered studio in the mountains near Evergreen, CO. The album was mastered by Grammy Award-winning producer David Glasser and in 2010, "Actual Natural" was released for the world's listening pleasure.
Frogs have been playing festivals and writing new music this summer and are excited to tour during the fall and winter months. Playing over 160 shows every year, the Frogs are coming to a town near you soon. A crowd of FGF fans is as diverse as the set list, where hippies and hipsters, heads and first-timers groove together in one sweaty dance party.
