1/21 Daily Update: Ridiculously awesome night of music

Jun 27, 2010 by

Where to begin? With Tim Reynolds, Split Lip Rayfield and Harmonious Junk all playing tonight, just pick whoever is closest and have a good ol time.

In Vail, Sandbar hosts TR3. This is not Arnold Schwarzenegger… it’s musical virtuoso Tim Reynolds! Widely known as the guitar player for Dave Matthews Band, Tim is touring with two accomplished musicians to show off his wide range of musical talents including the seven instuments that he has mastered.

At Steamboat’s Ghost Ranch Saloon, Harmonious Junk takes the stage. Harmonious Junk was founded by former James Brown Band lead guitarist, Damon Wood. Wood began the project in Las Vegas in 2001, as a side project when not touring with James Brown. He later relocated to Denver and reformed the group. Wood and a revolving cast of players have released 2 studio discs, 2005’s Space Cadet and 2008’s Too Cocky In Nagasaki. The former was featured in Relix Magazine, and led to the band being named “Best Jamband” by Westword magazine in 05′. The latter features legendary James Brown bassist/vocalist Fred Thomas on 3 tracks. Harmonious Junk has recently worked up a 21 song tribute to the band Ween, as well as a tribute to the music of the film The Big Lebowski. They recently opened for the film at the Boulder Theater in Colorado. The current cast of players includes Brian Efros on Bass, Mikey Goletz on drums, and Brian Loftus (from Little Hercules) on drums.

And, Split Lip Rayfield begins a 4 day tour of Colorado’s mountains at Three20South in Breckenridge. If you’ve ever longed to see a talented band with a bassist that plays homemade one-string bass built from the gastank of a 1978 Mercury Grand Marquis and a piece of hickory and strung with one piece of Weedwhacker line, this is the band for you!
