Quinn DeVeaux
Quinn DeVeaux
Quinn DeVeaux spent his early childhood living with his grandmother, a former jazz singer, twenty-five miles outside of Chicago in Gary, Indiana. The birthplace of the Jackson 5 had long since slipped into post-industrial economic decline and the ambitious DeVeaux, while still a teenager, headed west with just a guitar and a golden voice. Eventually he found his way to San Francisco, CA where he was a founding member of the Blue Roots, a short-lived but near mythic group that operated out of the Mission District at the turn of the millennium. Alongside DeVeaux, the group included Lech Wierzynski and Nansamba Ssensalo, the pair who would go on to form the California Honeydrops, and bassist Nate Brenner of the Tune-Yards. Quinn would release a string of well regarded albums in the ensuing years, garnering accolades from the Bay Area music press and gathering fans on the dance floors at his high energy and “joyous” live shows. Rock critic Ian S. Port praised DeVeaux for “distill[ing] decades of American blues, country, soul, and gospel into a funky sound that feels as authentic as it does refreshing.”

The Guestlist
The Guestlist
The Guestlist has a hard time with genres.

Mostly stemming from roots in the blues, they have crossed many different genres and styles. Josh starting writing songs after the passing of his father in 2011. He wrote 40+ songs in a garage in the mountains of Colorado, came out of his reclusive state and formed Ashen Embers. After they put out an album, two members left to travel longterm and Josh developed serious medical issues that have not ceased but have inspired many songs.

After calling the band quits, Josh began to play solo. He then joined back with Cameron Wyman from Ashen Embers on bass. Cameron's friends from jazz school began jumping on board with the band like Zach Holcomb, a local coffee roaster and freelance jazz pianist. Then they had chosen a drummer from school, Tate Ignelzi. Ignelzi has been involved in several projects including : Drumming/producing with John Runnels, Signel-Z, Lily Fangz, and D-stylz. The band quickly started playing shows after the four first heard Josh's tunes in late 2013. Then, they added Eric Estrada on trumpet and Kyle Videtzky playing the saxophones.

Tate, Cameron and Josh live in a shanty ramblin' house ("The Bloodswamp") in downtown Denver that is scheduled to soon be demolished. They put on shows in the backyard where they built a crumbling, wooden stage next to graffiti'd walls, an abandoned house and a strangers boat. They have noise complaints to prove it.

With their new studio album coming out in the late spring, The Guestlist is pushing boundaries of the group's sound. They have partnered with multiple different names in Denver's rapidly expanding music scene (soon to be disclosed), and are trying to spread the passion they feel about life, music, class, as well as politics across the rocky, white and purple mountains and beyond.
