Trout Steak Revival with The River Arkansas @the Gothic Theatre
Denver’s very own Trout Steak Revival, building off recent national momentum from high-energy performances and a well-received album (“Brighter Every Day”) takes its annual hometown headlining show to the Gothic Theater on Saturday, March 11, 2017. Joining the band as a special guest at the Gothic Theatre will be Chris Pandolfi (http://chrispandolfi.com) of the Infamous Stringdusters (http://www.thestringdusters.com). Pandolfi produced “Brighter Every Day” with the band in 2015 and, over the past year, has performed across the country with Ryan Adams, Phil Lesh, Jon Fishman, Page McConnell, Joe Russo, Derek Trucks, and Susan Tedeschi.
Ever since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, Trout Steak Revival has quickly become a quintessential Colorado band. The band won an Emmy Award for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS web documentary. They’ve collaborated with school children in mentoring programs in Denver and Steamboat Springs. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Most recently, Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band, and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
Defined more by expressive songwriting and heartfelt harmonies rather than any one genre, Trout Steak Revival crosses over and blends the bounds of folk, indie, bluegrass, and roots, and in doing so, evokes its own style of Americana. With five band members all contributing unique lyrics, lead vocals, acoustic instrumentation, and harmonies, Trout Steak Revival crafts memorable tunes and delivers them to an energetic fanbase that grows hand-in-hand with the band.
