Intuit live with Bonnie and the Clydes & Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams
Intuit band formed in 2011 in Boulder, CO and began to shape their sound and intentions together on the campus of Naropa University. With roots in reggae, funk, jazz, blues, folk, hip-hop and world music, the band has developed a distinguishable sound of their own, with song writing that crosses genres, and a rich improvisational component that keeps a fresh live energy to their wide repertoire of original music. With heart-warming lulls, climactic peaks, and endless stylistic shape–shifting, Intuit delivers a captivating groove that all can enjoy. Inspired by their shared love for the earth and her creatures, as well as a dedication to building community and growing together, each song has a message inviting us to go beyond the surface into a deeper sense of knowing. Let the music lift you up and take you in.
Bonnie Elizabeth Sims commands the stage with a natural presence of a songstress beyond her years. At twenty-seven she has already established herself as a hard-working woman of this modern musical era, doing the majority of booking and managing for the band as well. Bonnie sings with a voice that seems too big for her petite (almost) five-foot frame, belting to the back row wherever she is with heart and soul. Her energy is infectious and undeniable, she makes it easy to love and impossible to sit still, be it an emotional evoking ballad or a peel-the-paint country rocker. Bonnie and the Clydes consists of Taylor Sims (Bonnie’s husband) on electric guitar and vocals, Caleb Roberts on bass guitar, and Jake Coffin on drums. In addition to Taylor’s electric guitar and vocal contribution to the band, he and Bonnie also pool their songwriting talents to co-write many tunes that define the unique Bonnie & the Clydes’ sound.
Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams ride out from the cutting edge cowtown of Denver, Colorado. Rootsy and real, neither revivalist nor retro, the Hi-Beams’ brand of country music is as boundless and electrifying as America itself.
Equal parts Hank Williams and Johnny Depp, front man Halden Wofford pours forth a potent mix of rocked-up honky tonk, western swing, Dylanesque originals and spaghetti western epics. There is no creative limit to the songwriter, illustrator, author, storyteller and singer. But Halden has met his match in the Hi-Beams. Each outrageous tale he spins is met by the whine and wail of the steel guitar, the furious double-neck electric guitar and mandolin, and the relentless thump of the upright bass and drums.
