Ghost Town Drifters, a Denver-based bluegrass five-piece, is comprised of band members Oren Paisner (Mandolin), Colin Huff (Upright Bass), Alex Tocco (Fiddle), Mike Testagrossa (Dobro) and Tom Mueller (Guitar). Hailing from different parts of the East Coast, this collective found its way to each other through mutual friends, local jam sessions, and previous band experiences, leading the way right to each other.
Ghost Town Drifter’s journey initiated as a pick-up gig with local bluegrass folk who were just looking to jam out. After a while, their player lineup solidified, and they began making ways in the Denver bluegrass scene, propelling themselves into a whirlwind of pickin’ and foot-stompin’ throughout the local community.
Escape On a Horse is the collaborative effort of musicians Daniel Jaramillo, Allisyn Stanfield, Andrew Stocker and David Fellenz who met and convened in Northern New Mexico. Between lead songwriter Jaramillo’s Rootsy approach and the multi-instrumentalist/Vocalist Stanfield’s talents, they have created a congruous union over top the solid rhythm foundation brought by Stocker and Fellenz. EOAH has developed an eclectic blend of Alt-country mixed with a smattering of soul and rock that’s not without their own brand of wry humor.
