Solomon Cook = Amazing Acoustics

We all know when 2 legendary Colorado artists join forces that it's going to be good. So when we heard that Subdudes bass-player / vocalist / songwriter, Tim Cook began a new project with fellow songwriter Rob Solomon we were prepared for something great.

But what we got was blown away by the soulful harmonies and incredible storytelling that Solomon Cook created. And now we are even more excited to showcase the duo's signature sound for Concerts at the Armory with Jonatha Brooke on Wednesday November 4th.

Check out a sneak peak below of Solomon Cook's talked about performance from this year's Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest and get excited!

Matt Mahern - A Musician of Many Traits

It's quite possible that Matt Mahern has performed with the most musicians in town. You have probably seen him sharing the stage with Lindsey O'Brien Band, Motorhome, Ginger Whale, Matt Mahern and Constitution, maybe you even remember the Bodhi Band?

P-Mann, as he is affectionately known by the Fort Collins musicians community, has been a staple in our scene for years. As a CSU Music Department Alumni he has a vast knowledge of instruments and styles, which has shaped his sound as a little something for everyone.

Matt can play most anything on pretty much anything. He's recently found his stride as a solo artist by honing in on his songwriting skills and perfecting his storytelling. Tonight we are very excited to have Matt Mahern entertaining our audience at Concerts at the Armory alongside Joe Pug. Make sure to check out the video below to see him in action and get your tickets HERE.
