== Mamafesta from Austin, Texas ==
Mamafesta is an original groove-rock outfit that was born in the fall of 2011. Over the years Mamafesta has begun to channel their own unique sound and reach out to their audiences through their musicianship and vocal messages. The band consists of four diverse musicians with well-rooted friendships in music and in life including Zack Morgan on keyboards and vocals and Lowell Carrico on guitar and lead vocals. The rhythm section is made up of Vince Seidl on drums and vocals and Logan Dance on bass and vocals. Together these four talented musicians create a high-energy wave of sound that entices and evokes the spirit of the soul. Mamafesta respects meaningful lyrical messages and well arranged tunes that have the freedom to go to a destination that the audience, atmosphere, and band all equally manifest together. Mamafesta prides themselves on their original material while still paying homage to the past greats and present day innovators. They’ll be releasing their debut album “Creatures of Rhythm” this December. Hold on tight or just let go…
== Amoramora from Boulder, Colorado ==
Amoramora has been saving the world with rock’n’roll since 2016. Every live show is guaranteed to blast you off into a cosmic dance party and features an ever changing blend of psychedelic jams, funk, bluegrass, african highlife and beyond. Fueled by high-energy improvisation, the undeniable joy this quartet shares onstage and offstage is reflected by their devout and growing fanbase, the Amorons. Based out of Boulder, CO, the band has a commitment to consistently changing setlists, expanding their already extensive catalog of original material, and stirring the musical gumbo. Along with the deep instrumental blend of guitar, keyboard, trumpet, EWI, bass & drums, all four members are also vocalists. Their astronomic compositions take the listener on an engaging journey while whimsical and captivating lyrics fuel the fire of musical imagery. The quartet, two of which have music degrees from the University of Colorado and University of Miami (FL), create a refreshing experience every night to keep their audience and listeners on their toes.
After selling out their first headlining play at the The Fox Theatre in May of 2017 the band released “S’moramora Volume 2” on all major listening/streaming platforms and has been touring the US extensively while expanding their rapidly growing audience deemed the ‘Amorheads & Amorons’.
