The Boulder-based Face Vocal Band are both celebrating and giving back to the local music scene at their first-ever Red Rocks performance on Aug. 6. In addition to donating $5 of every ticket sold to support Colorado music education, the five-man vocal group also invited local artists to enter a contest for the opportunity to perform as openers at the show.
On June 13, Face announced the winners: country rock group Dearling and the ‘70s tribute band Mr. Majestyk’s 8-Track Revival. The two bands were selected after more than 50 artists entered submissions through the contest’s Indi page. And because they’re good guys, Face has also invited the “pop baroque” quartet Spinphony to perform as well.
Colorado natives Dearling recently completed a successful campaign to raise money for their first radio campaign. The four-piece band recently released their debut full length Inheritance and Dearling’s single “Wild Blue” was recently added to Spotify’s Best of Indie Folk playlist. Watch their video for “Rock Steady” above.
Mr. Majestyk’s 8-Track Revival (and his Cavalcade of all-stars) is an 8-piece band that performs polished and spirited covers of songs from classic ‘70s artists like Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, ELO and Queen, among others. The group has a three-piece string section that adds warmth to their sound but the MM8TR’s chops have earned them universal praise since forming in 2013.
And those who get to the show early will have the opportunity to see Spinphony, who recently released their video for the killer Journey-meets-classical mashup “Don’t Stop Beethoven.” With three vastly different yet talented bands set to share the stage with Colorado’s biggest vocal pop group, Face’s Aug. 6 Red Rocks show is shaping up to be a night to remember.
