We don’t promote band’s shows too often on this site, more like just the bands themselves, but this band is worthy of an exception. If you happen to be in the downtown Denver area tomorrow night, Friday Feb. 18th, you owe it to yourself to go and check out Ground UP at Cervantes’ Other Side. These guys are the epitome of Jam Band, emphasis on Jam! These guys shredd!! If you want to rock out to some disgustingly tasty guitar licks with a great feeling groove, this is THE spot tomorrow night!
Here’s all the Ground UP details:

w/ The Schwillbillies and Hillbilly Inferno
$15 at door, $12 advance for DUAL VENUE TICKET (Cervantes AND The Otherside)
Denver, Colorado is known as a feel good city and what better goes with a feel good city then some feel good music. The type of music, that makes you want to get up out of your seat and groove to the rhythms that set your soul free. This, my friends, is what Ground Up delivers at each one of their unique and energetic jam band filled shows.
Home grown in Denver, Colorado, Ground Up is a four-piece band that has been artistically molded by its environment. Most people say that we are a product of our environment, and in this case, Ground Up is that particular product that is flying off the shelf like the new G.I. Joe with the kung-fu grip.
GroundUP is a SICK jam band out of Denver Colorado. A freshly ground mix of
Russ Griffin – guitar/vocals
Dave Halchak – guitar/vocals
Trevor Sinnard – bass/vocals
Zach West – drums
This was one of my favorite bands from the THC Music Fest. All of these guys can jam out hard and their music has such an awesome vibe. If you ever get the opportunity to see them live, you should definitely take it. Their updated tour schedule can be found here.
Each member of Ground Up provides their own distinct flavor to the music, seamlessly switching between funky riffs, high-energy improvised jams, and grooving mini-suites.
Unfortunately, Ground UP has not recorded their first album yet, due to some financial trouble. The band hopes to get in the studio some time next spring. If you want to help them record their CD, send them a message on Myspace or Facebook, you’d be doing the world a great favor.
These guys need to be recorded! Right now online they mostly just have live recordings, which is okay, but it will never compare to seeing them live, and if you don’t live in Colorado, that’s not really an option. They need to take what they’re doing in CO to the whole world. These guys kick ass! Show your support, even a dollar helps, and pay pal makes it really easy to send money to anyone these days, for no charge. Just something to think about. p.s. The band did not ask me to say that.
