  • Fun. Excitement. Pure Entertainment. These are the hallmarks of a Tracksuit Wedding concert experience. This soulful band brings a unique mix of funk, rock and blues to the stage. It's not every day that a band comes along that is as comfortable playing in local rooms as it is in the lineup of national festivals. Tracksuit Wedding, Denver's premier vintage rock/funk/blues powerhouse, makes both look easy.

    Conceived in 2013, Tracksuit Wedding is the brainchild of keyboardist Libby Anschutz and lead singer Ali Frankfurt, who fronted the gritty punk, hard rock group The Blackouts for many years. The group began writing original music in 2015 and was recently recognized by the Denver Post as a "Band on the Move." The band brings together seasoned players from across the Denver scene, mixing styles and celebrating the universal truth that a band’s primary objective is to get a groove going.

    Players have come and gone, even changed places (Anschutz was the drummer early on). The current lineup is the most cohesive yet and solidifies Tracksuit Wedding as a force in Colorado music.

    The members of Tracksuit Wedding are familiar faces at Colorado venues, both as fans of local music and as hardworking musicians. The members may come from different backgrounds "rock, punk, soul and funk" but it's a limitless love of music that makes that band work.

    The combination of various influences and sounds makes Tracksuit Wedding stand out and demand attention. The band’s original tunes are both familiar and fresh, as they are the perfect combination of loose, low-fi, bluesy rock and the well-honed professionalism of seasoned musicians.
