The Mauskovic Dance Band live and in person at Hi-Dive in Denver, CO w/ Don Chicharrón, Honey Blazer.


The Mauskovic Dance Band combines elements of cumbia, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, & space disco in equal measure to create a unique hypnotic groove.

The group is the brainchild of Nicola Mauskovic, Amsterdam based producer and multi-instrumentalist.


Don Chicharrón quiere bailar contigo.

Don Chicharrón plays and pays homage to Chicha, the sonic result of Peruvian artists mixing the various aural stylings of their day: ‘60s psychedelia, Andean traditional folk melodies, and Afro-Cuban cumbia rhythms. Formed by Peruvian-American, Aldo Pantoja, Don Chicharrón filters its brand of Chicha through the songwriting influences of its 8 other members, giving its self-titled debut LP touches of punk, surf, prog, jazz, reggaetón, and salsa.

Live, Don Cheech invites audiences to get tangled up in a canopy of trippy guitarwork, shuffle to mesmerizing synth-play and shout celebratory chants. Based in Denver, CO, the band and its kind of cumbia is as influenced by the spaghetti western sounds of its Rocky Mountain deserts as it is by the Amazonian jungles and coastal cities that created Chicha. All are welcome to liberate their hips at the Don Cheech discoteca.

In 2018, Don Chicharrón shared the stage with Ozomatli, Sotomayor, Combo Chimbita, Tropa Magica and Y La Bamba and in 2019 plans to tour the United States, Mexico and Peru. ¡A BAILAR!


Rolling down from the smoky mountain is the sound of Honey Blazer: a Denver-based group chipping the shale off rock-and-roll gems that draw from both West Coast experimentalism and the best of Heartland songwriting.

The members of Honey Blazer (Gann Matthews, Mitch Accord, Brad Grear, Ryan Wong and Zach Holcomb) carry a yarn from all walks of the musical spectrum, weaving an elegant tapestry of blues, country, folk and psychedelia. With a songwriting engine that is equal parts Garcia and Granduciel, the quintet combines the dexterous and imaginative musicianship of the Dead with the powerful compositional skills of contemporaries like the War on Drugs and Cass McCombs.
