Back in 1965 The Sloths released one single that became a Garage classic. The wild Makin' Love with You Mean Everything as the flip-side. The Sloths were from the poor side of Beverly Hills and soon became a popular draw on the Sunset Strip. They supported bands such as Love, The Leaves and The Doors among other greats of that era. Here's your chance to catch some real unsung heroes of Garage Rock 'n Roll live!

Although we have only been playing shows since the fall of 2013, the members of The Good Gracious are no stranger to the Denver music scene. Drummer Peter Higgins and Bassist Adam Oderberg were the rhythm section of the power pop band Missing DuFrenes and bring a love of 90's alt-rock and punk. Guitarist Chris Radigan was in the indie-folk/pop band Reviving Cecilia but also brings a post-hardcore technicality. Guitarist Josh Cool's resume includes songwriter and guitar duties in southern rock outfit Out On Bail and math rock band The Uncertain Sea, as well as bassist and keyboardist in prog-punk band Spokeshaver. It was there that he first played with vocalist and keyboardist Kristin Garramone who brings her own jazzy brand of rock singing in the vein of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick. Guitarist Danny Simpson rounds out the three guitar assault with a love of melodic hardcore and pop punk.

Their sound is an amalgamation of our past and our musical loves for sure, but in a more emotionally expressive and dramatic direction than our members previous projects. We are not afraid of labels like emo, post-rock, or post-punk but don't feel locked into any genres. While constantly striving to tinker with song structure and dynamics we are trying to give a fresh take on the aggressive music we grew up listening to.

...and the black feathers
...and the black feathers
In an era of harmony, when music was written with love and innocence, bands backed up a great singer who could capture an audience's ear. Most frequently equated as a performer, rather than a song writer, these performers where hailed as kings and queens of their craft without writing a single song. Those days are dead and gone, but the band still plays on. These are the musicians whose names we never knew, and they are the black feathers.
