Springtime in Colorado. Love in the air. Whiskerman returns to the Mile High City, supported by none other than Denver's own Bear Antler. Let's party.

WHISKERMAN

Whether entranced in a ballad or clawing out some frenzied rock and roll, Whiskerman is seeking the heart of the matter. Lush instrumentation combined with front man Graham Patzner's profound lyricism and unflinching delivery culminate in a sound that is soulful, mythical, and raw. Patzner’s voice, both smokey and soaring, leads a passionate live show as the band’s classic rock sound seamlessly cascades through realms of bluesy devotion, psychedelic melancholy, and twangy celebration. Whiskerman's shows tend to set spells, either sweeping the audience up in revelation, or dropping them into knee-slapping frenzy. Joining Patzner (vocals, guitar, violin and piano), is Will Lawrence (bass and mandolin), and Charles Lloyd (guitar and sitar), Dan Schwartz (drums), and Trevor Bahnson (guitar).

"When they're revved up, Whiskerman sounds like a gospel and soul band that can make you feel like raising your hands in the air in praise of its talent. In their quieter songs, there's a storytelling vibe with intricate melodies." (SF Chronicle)

Their latest release is Champions, a sprawling double-album masterpiece that takes the listener on a hero’s journey through barroom rock n’ roll, blue eyed soul, pastoral folk, workingman’s blues, and rainy day ragas.

“On Champions Whiskerman present ecstatic psychedelia, sturdily constructed pop-rock, pick-and-grin folk all together as a single picture.” (Flood Magazine)

BEAR ANTLER

Mike Cooley once said that rock and roll means well but it can’t help telling young boys lies. The Bear Antler brand of rock and roll is most certainly full of lies but, like a bad lover, it also has a drinking problem, sweats too much, and stays out all night.

The lads of Bear Antler know a little something about bad lovers. They sing about cheating women, lying women, no good women… women that call collect to break up with you. But mostly, they sing about the women they can’t live without. There’s also a few murder ballads for good measure.

It’s not always pretty, but when the groove is right, the pocket is tight, and the lights are bright, you can bet no one is having a better time than the five guys on stage.

What else can you expect from a band that met in a bar?
