Join us for Tenth Mountain Division a rock n roll fusion band that embodies the wild spirit of mountain towns!
Tenth Mountain Division revives the soul, spirit and eclectic intersection of influences that birthed rock’n’roll, afresh for the modern ear. Just a fancy way of saying that we’re bringing back classic rock, because that’s what we love! Originating from Boulder, CO, founders Winston Heuga (Mandolin) and MJ Ouimette (Electric/Acoustic Guitar) originally sought to create an acoustic bluegrass outfit. After a few years dedicated to playing bluegrass, the duo transitioned to an electrified, rock’n’roll sound. Here they found their stride when Ouimette and Heuga collaborated with bassist Connor Dunn, drummer Tyler Gwynn and the ever-talented keyboard player Campbell Thomas. Together the quintet creates a diverse soundscape that combines soaring electric guitar leads and melodic keyboards while retaining its roots in bluegrass with Heuga’s incomparable mandolin style. The rhythmic interplay of Dunn’s driving bass fused with Gwynn’s incendiary drumming round out the unique sounding band that is truly a style of its own; what the band refers to as 'Ski Rock". Tenth Mountain Division has evolved greatly since its inception but retains its roots in the American musical styles of rock, jazz, improvisation, bluegrass and the crossroads between them all. The band has performed throughout Colorado from Boulder’s Fox Theatre, the Aggie Theatre, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Pardee Palooza Festival at State Bridge Amphitheatre, in addition to venues across the country when they embarked on their first national tour summer of 2016. TMD’s performance at the Fox Theater’s installment of the Summer Camp: On The Road competition earned the band a slot at the 2016 Summer Camp Music Festival. Previously they’ve placed 2nd in CU’s 2015 Battle of the Bands as well as winning fan favorite in that competition. Recently, the band released their first album ‘Cracks In The Sky’ in March of 2016, available now on all platforms!
Miles Over Mountains is a progressive bluegrass band based in McHenry, IL. Their live shows are high energy, centered around an arsenal of original material and refreshing variety of cover songs served up in their own unique style.
"A four-piece act consisting of guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass MoM provides the listener with a paradoxical calming, yet exciting experience. The band somehow has the power to ease one’s worries while also forcing the crowd into a frenzy of dance." -LiveForLiveMusic.com
Touring through their third year as a band, Miles Over Mountains continues to turn heads across the nation as their momentum, fanbase and touring schedule continue to grow.
