City Park Jazz: The Burroughs

Jun 7, 2020


Steeped in classic soul standards and outfitted with modern flair, The Burroughs are a nine piece band with a powerhouse sound that has been electrifying audiences across Colorado and beyond. Since 2013, the band has lit up stages with their trademark brand of "Sweaty Soul Music," quickly earning their rightful place as one of the best live bands in the region. The Burroughs' 2019 release with Color Red, a digital 45 featuring the original tunes "The Slip" and "Forever In Love," has been called "a funk-focused, witty complimentary pair of tracks that are like nothing you've ever heard in decades" by 303 Magazine. Funktropolis writes "The band drops pure fire on this funkalicious groove—super-tight horn lines, bumpin' bass, dirty rhythm guitar and a sizzling beat. And can we talk about that bridge? The Godfather himself would tip his hat to this monster of a bridge, which raises the track's funk level through the roof." The tracks were recorded at Color Red's studio in Denver, CO, and produced by Mike Tallman of Euforquestra and Kim Dawson of The Pimps of Joytime.
