Lord Nelson has won many fans over the last several years with their spirited live performances and serious musical chops. Those fans should raise a glass, because they’re about to get their ears blown off with the new full-length album Through the Night, set for a late spring release. The album possesses a depth of sound that can only come from the frequent addition of piano, organ, and horns to guitar-based rock. This set of songs, written on the road and between tours, explores dark themes of relationships, the political climate of the country, and what it means to spend your days in a van, traveling the highways of America.
Produced over the last year by Dave Stipe (Rockfish Music) at Monkeyclaus Studio in Nelson County, VA, the record has a full, Rock’n’Roll identity, heavily laced with Americana and Soul. Whether it’s a fat horn section under a slide guitar riff, propelling it powerfully forward, or a harmony vocal giving the song an extra dimension, the album illustrates the power of a band bringing lyric driven songs to full expression. As anyone who has seen their live show will tell you, while there are several excellent solos and impressive individual moments, the thing that gets you – the thing that keeps you coming back – is that full sound. Sonically, the band is greater than the sum of its parts, in the best possible way. With a full tour of the east coast and points west in the works, this is a band in command of their sound, bringing strong songs in hard times to towns across the country. Keep your head up.
The Sneaky Bastards
The Sneaky Bastards formed in 2009 and have quickly become a mainstay on the Colorado music scene. The bands sound combines the gritty songwriting of Mark Brut with the more melodic rock stylings of Adam Kilgus. The band also has a knack for selecting choice covers, often by obscure artists, and making them their own. Drawing from influences all over the map, the general consensus in this band is that a great song is where it's at no matter where it lies in the music spectrum. The result has been a sound that is something different on the Denver music scene. In addition to guitarists and vocalists Brut and Kilgus, the band's lineup is comprised of Colorado music veterans Paul Cohen on bass, Ethan Ice on keyboards and Mike Matz on drums.

The band has performed all over Colorado as such venues as Cervante's and Quixote's True Blue in Denver, the Old Town Pub in Steamboat Springs, the Goat in Keystone, the Winter Park Pub in Winter Park and Cactus Jack's in Evergreen, and has appeared on the bill with many other great regional and national touring acts such as Johnny Winter, John K Band, Betsy Franck & the Bareknuckle Band, Bret Mosley, Eric Martinez, Daniel Lawrence Walker, Fried Grease and others.
