Smooth Money Gesture, Bear Hat and Strangebyrds

December 2, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm MST


Smooth Money Gesture:
Smooth Money Gesture is the very essence of a modern American Rock and Roll band. Since the early 2000’s, the band has been honing in on their sound, bringing their music from the East Coast to Alaska; finally landing in Nederland, Colorado where the band permanently resides. The quartet’s sound is rooted in rock and roll with elements of funk, bluegrass, metal, and electronica producing a jam based high energy psychedelic creation all their own. With a variety of musical influences feeding the improvisational groove, and the majority of members contributing vocals and to songwriting, Smooth Money Gesture takes one on an adrenaline rich celebratory journey that never runs out of fuel.

Bear Hat:
Bear Hat is an eclectic five-piece acoustic ensemble hailing from the majestic mountain communities around Boulder, Colorado. Inspired by the rugged beauty of their surroundings, this group of talented musicians combines their diverse backgrounds and instrumentation to create a sound that is truly unique. Consisting of guitar, mandolin, banjo, flute & upright bass, Bear Hat weaves together original material and tasteful covers to create an exhilarating blend of Bluegrass, Old Time, Swing, Blues and Rock’ n’ Roll. Buckle Up – Bear Hat is Feeling Grizzly!
