This event is all ages

Heavy, largely instrumental, jam-rock guitar/bass/drums trio. Much of their output is live recordings.
Cloud Catcher
Descending from within Denver's Rocky Mountains, Cloud Catcher have arrived. The trio consisting of Rory Rummings on guitar and vocals, Kam Wentworth on bass, and Jared Soloman Handman on drums have spent considerable time crafting their own brand of heavy cosmic rock. Cloud Catcher's riff driven and energy fueled performances have landed them the opportunity to have shared the stage with such notable acts as Mothership, Slow Season, Mondo Drag, Lecherous Gaze, Joy, Ape Machine, Black Pussy, Lord Dying, and many more. In 2015, their debut album, 'Enlightened Beyond Existence' had caught the attention of the local Colorado heavy music scene. The album exhibits some of the finest heavy rock and roll submerged in psychedelia this side of the Andromeda Galaxy.
'Enlightened Beyond Existence' channels the essence of early 70's-era hard rock, yet propels it so far beyond orbit, transmuting it with astral brilliance. Cloud Catcher resonates to those who worship heavy acts such as Captain Beyond, early Grand Funk Railroad, Spirit Caravan, and Earthless. The trio summons thick, fuzz-laiden, mountainous riffs, sub earthly jams, and the long lost art of guitar solos which unite in crushing harmony. Cloud Catcher has received the esoteric "cosmic nod" and is unrelentingly wielding it in an attempt to pry open the mind's eye of collective consciousness. Be forewarned...
