CISCO ADLER –
I'm a musician first and a human second.
I am a workaholic who knows how to have a good time.
I love women until they hate me...then I love them more.
I live in Malibu, California when I'm not living on a bus or in a hotel room.
I grew up barefoot in Maui, Hawaii from age 9 until I was 18 when I went of to college at the University of Arizona to study nothing...I did not graduate.
I have six brothers named Nic, Sonny, Manny, Ike, Oscar, and Pablo and a sister named Eve.
I have three dogs named Poncho, Joe, and Tambourine, a cat named Nicada, and several unnamed deer that visit me daily.
I drive a Hybrid and you should too.
I was a vegetarian for 8 years until I met a baked lobster roll I couldn't resist and have been a carnivore ever since.
I don't have a favorite color and I wonder when that happened because I always had one as a kid and it kind of saddens me.
I love the smell of fresh cut grass.
I like T.V.'s with mute buttons that deactivate when u press the volume up button.
I love the feeling that you get when you get off of a roller coaster but I hate the feeling you get when your getting on it.
I make music all day everyday because if I didnt I would go insane.
I dont give a fuck what people think about me as long as they think about me. I want to change the world for the better.
I am real.
Are you?
LOVE YA!

Wes Watkins
Band Leader of the Other Black and trumpet player from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats,

A trumpet player of 20 years, Wes Watkins is a former student of Denver School of the Arts. However, it is not the time that he spent in arts school that he credits for his musical career but the time he spent homeless that taught him how to identify the power of individuality.

From the beginning, Wes has proven that if you're in the position where you must fight for everything that you have, you can achieve anything that you want. From his humble start living as a homeless street performer, most notably as a trumpeter, Wes has pulled himself up, dusted himself off and solidified himself as one of Colorado's most renowned performers. Appearing in bands such as; Other Black, Wheelchair Sports Camp, Air Dubai, Izcalli and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Wes had developed an ability to adapt to many musical styles while keeping true to his own unique flare. Watkins goal is to encourage people to experience themselves, because if we can be comfortable in our own skin, we can be comfortable with others.

“I strive to use my music to encourage people to experience the individual. I believe if you can acknowledge and accept the entirety of yourself you will find perspective in your perception of others. No matter housing status, economic status, race, gender, political association, etc. In our quickly changing world I make music to create inclusive neighborhood, because the best change supports connection to community.”
