YAMN Live @ Cervantes 3-Part Show Recap (HD) from 11-12-10

As the band said at the show last Friday night, they have nothing to sell but themselves and with every show they continue to prove it.  Here is a 3-part recap of their sonically stellar jam session live from Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO.

YAMN is Brian Hamilton (guitar, vocals), Adam Ebensberger (drums, vocals), David Duart (bass, vocals), and Ryan Ebarb (keys, guitar, vocals).  Based out of our own Colorado backyard since 2008, YAMN continues with every show to add to their already loyal fanbase with some of the smoothest and most inventive jams on the circuit.

The energy and emotion of a YAMN show is something that must be witnessesed live.  Soaring guitar riffs, uber talented work on the keys, and a full range of vocals from the entire band are focal points of their unique progressive-trance-fusion sound.  It doesn’t stop there, these guys also maintain a solid reverence for the classic rock standards of years long ago.  Words do not due this band justice, it is simply something you must experience live and in person.

Check out YAMN’s website for more info on the band and upcomming tour dates around Colorado and the rest of the United States.  YAMN ON!!!

George Thorogood & The Destroyers HD Video UPDATE

Here are some of the amazing classic rock tunes that were rocked out by the legendary George Thorogood and the Destroyers recently at the Fillmore Denver.  

I had my doubts about seeing an aging rocker such as GT but my worries were flushed out the window once he started the heavy riffs for the classic, “Bad to the Bone”.

GT is about rock…classic rock… drinking, women, guitar and the ups and downs of blue collar life, it’s as simple as that.  Even at GT’s age he still has more stage presence and energy than todays rockers that are half his age. 

If you have the chance to catch George and the fellas anytime in the near future I would seriously recommend taking that opportunity, you won’t soon regret it.  Rock On!!!

*****Stay tuned in for more updates throughout the month including:  Updates and video from this Friday’s YAMN show @ Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Bassnectar vids from the bass-tastic show at the 1st Bank Center and something special for “No Shave” November*****

-NEW UPDATE- Turning from green to gold – YAMN 10/12/10

With the Red Rocks summer schedule in the rear view and the tress turning from green to gold another far out summer of Colorado music has come to a close.  However there is no need to fret my pets…the action moves indoors to some great Denver venues throughout the fall into the long and lonely winter.  Chances are you know about the many fruitful options the city of Denver holds for fans of live music but if you are new to the scene or the city here are some of the best places to catch a tasty show.

THE FILLMORE   -  1510 Clarkson St.  Denver, CO 80218

 

 

One of my personal favorite places to see a show, very intimate venue and great sound after being remodeled with a new acoustically treated ceiling.  I had the pleasure of seeing the legendary George Thorogood and the Destroyers there recently and I can attest the place was rocking.  Stay tuned into the blog for a mid-week update with some awesome HD video from that show.  The building has a long and storied past with many name changes and various owners but has remained one of the cities most popular venues.  It has hosted acts from Jimi Hendrix to the Trey Anastasio Band and most recently Sound Tribe Sector 9 who is set to perform three mind-bending, face melting nights there Dec. 29, 30, and 31st 2010…this will surely be an epic event and one hell of a way to kick-start the 2011 concert season.

 

THE OGDEN  -  935 E. Colfax Ave.  Denver, CO 80218

 

Originally opened way back in 1919 it served as a theater for performing arts and even hosted the incomparable Harry Houdini.  The interesting venue inside and out with a rich history was almost destroyed before Nobody In Particular Presents stepped up and purchased the property in 1992.  Since then the Ogden was purchased by AEG Live and has become a force in the Denver live music scene and has proven its popularity in hosting a wide array of artists and events.  Be sure to get your tickets and peep a show here. 

 

The Bluebird Theater  -  3317 E. Colfax Ave.  Denver, CO 80206

 

Though smaller and generally lesser known than the aforementioned theaters, The Bluebird has stood the test of time in a crowded Denver music scene and has managed to become a home to some of the best local bands as well as the indie music circuit.  Originally built in 1913 as a theater house, it went under many changes throughout the years until 1994 when its current concert house emerged.  Like the Ogden it was also purchased by AEG Live.

 

Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom  -  2637 Welton St.  Denver, CO 80205

 

Cervates Masterpiece Ballroom is one of several hidden gems of the Denver live music scene.  I will be attending YAMN live this Friday, November 12th and will have full HD video coverage of the show here on the blog next week, be sure to check in often now that the site is back to functionality.  That’s all I got for now, don’t forget to come back for the George Thorogood HD Video Update later this week and more info on what is sure to be a great YAMN show this Friday.  Get your tickets now by clicking here now…its good, clean fun and it’s cheap.

YAMN: A Hearty Buffet for the Hungry Ear!

Talented rockers, Yamn will be playing a show during Oktoberfest in beautiful Breckenridge, CO on Saturday, September 18th 2010 at Three20South.  Best of all…you can score tickets for the insanely low price of just $5 at the door night of the show!  And you thought all you could get was a foot long sub for that kinda scratch…you fool!  Bring your loved ones on up to the mountains for a celebration of Oktoberfest and a spectacular night of great music from YAMN.

Here’s some footage I shot of the fellas jammin’ up the Poudre River @ The Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellvue, CO earlier this summer.  Enjoy the tasty jams my friends…

If you don’t know the band…feel free to read on for some background info and tasty info nuggets below:

(via http://www.yamnit.com)

Yamn is a four-piece, high-energy, smooth sonic explosion. They play what the band calls progressive-trance-fusion. In 2007 Yamn’s members joined together in Breckenridge, Colorado. Soon after the guys hit the road to do what they are most passionate about, play live shows and create an atmosphere for concert-goers exuding freedom and creativity. Ever since, their sound, stage production, and fan base continues to build.

The band is comprised of: Brian Hamilton (guitar, vocals), Adam Ebensberger (drums, vocals), David Duart (bass, vocals), and Ryan Ebarb (keys, guitar, vocals). Since moving to Denver, CO in 2008 Yamn has seen a large increase in fanbase. The boys credit their recent growth and success to their unwavering and healthy sense of humor. Having the ability to laugh at themselves and place their egos aside has helped the members of Yamn to both evolve as musicians and as close friends. Evident in the recent battle of the band’s success, Yamn has headlined the Fox Theatre (Boulder, CO), Aggie Theatre (Fort Collins, CO), and Bluebird Theater (Denver, CO) to packed houses this year and has landed on many bills throughout Colorado supporting some of the nation’s largest acts.

Powerful and seductive is how Yamn’s sound is being described. The boys are focused and ready to continue on the journey upward. Knowing that there is much to learn in life and music, they have a drive to succeed. As they walk into the future Yamn plans to be anything but on the road, in the practice space and the studio. While not on the road one will find the band at home playing for the music-hungry Colorado residents by heating up dance floors and shining their expansive light show throughout the Colorado Front Range and Rocky Mountains.
