AARON WATSON has been through a lot in his twelve-year career: eleven albums, the birth of four children, countless hours on the road and many more still spent toiling away at his guitar, writing songs with Jesus on one shoulder and the ghost of Waylon Jennings on the other, making the country tunes he was born to play.
“Born country?” Exactly!!! CHARLEY JENKINS has country roots that run deep. He was raised on a farm in Eastern Utah where he learned how to rope, ride and work hard. Life on the Jenkins farm revolved around cows, horses and of course rodeo. Country music is all about a real cowboy’s life like Charley’s.
NASHVILLE – For a guy who didn’t start playing guitar until age 18, KYNDON OAKES looks and sounds like an artist and songwriter who’s been singing and playing his entire life. That’s a rare gift, one that shows the natural ability, incredible work ethic, and competitive nature of this former 3-sport star from Independence, Kansas who also just happens to look like a movie star.
EXIT WEST is a local Colorado band that plays a special blend of country/alternative country and American classic rock. Their style comes from a unique blend of influences of the old outlaw sounds of Waylon, Cash and Hank Jr, to modern alt/country sounds from the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Aldean, Chris Young and Robert Earl Keen.
TRIPLE NICKEL BAND was established in 2006 and has provided hundreds of high quality, high energy performances ever since. Our specialty is top 40 Country, but coupled with our ability to perform classic rock and a mix of enthusiastic original music, we have something for everyone.
I began playing the guitar at the age of 14. My first real guitar was a Fender Mustang (Yes, I still have it). I played rhythm guitar in a small garage band and also in the High School Stage Band. It was when I was in college that I first heard of Leo Kottke and his amazing guitar playing. It changed the way I thought guitars were played.
