Dream Feed
Dream Feed
Dream Feed is a four-piece Indie/Alt-Rock band from Colorado. The band formed shortly after the lead vocalist, Miguel Dakota, was a finalist on Season 9 of America's Got Talent in 2014. Miguel’s soulful and passionate voice caught the attention of many, including Simon Cowell, who tweeted, "Miguel Dakota. A future star..." after his first performance. His fan base and social media following jumped to 10's of thousands seemingly overnight. On the shows finale, Miguel performed alongside the incredible Lenny Kravitz to "American Woman."
In 2015, Miguel released his debut album, titled 'Love & Freedom.' Following the release, the band did two national tours under the band name, “Miguel Dakota and the Differents.”
Since then, Dream Feed has taken shape with Miguel providing lead vocals and guitar, Ryan Wagner on lead guitar and vocals, bassist Will Gaines, and drummer Brian Nolan. Their eclectic style combines alternative rock, blues and funk for an infectious musical cocktail. Hints of indie pop are layered with meaningful and powerful lyrics which provide a juxtaposition of a band that is paving the way with new sounds, while drawing from old wisdom.
While focusing on perfecting their sound in Denver and playing shows in and around Colorado, the band has been drawing more and more attention and increasingly larger audiences. The band, most recently won the KTCL 93.3 Demo Derby contest with a track off of their upcoming album. Additionally, they won the Road to Velorama grand prize based on their energetic and engaging live performance, and were invited to play the Velorama Festival along with Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, Tennis and others. They recently released their new singles “Finding Soul” and “Sun and Moon,” with the full album will be available this fall.

Miss Mojo
Miss Mojo is a soul-pop band based in New Orleans, LA that strives to move audiences through its potent songwriting and high-energy live performances. The band’s creative strength draws from neo-soul and New Orleans’ extensive funk tradition, producing smooth and soulful original music in which “hip” and “pop” flawlessly coexist. Years of playing in the city’s vibrant live music scene has sculpted Miss Mojo’s memorable performance style, which engages audiences and displays the band members’ passion for making music together. With the dynamic combo of Jenna Winston and Piper Browne serving as the voice of the band, Miss Mojo also seeks to use its platform to highlight the power of women through music.

In January of 2017, Miss Mojo released its debut EP, Up & Personal, a six-track album whose soulful ballads and body-loosening funk tunes demonstrate the band’s versatility. The group released its’ full length debut, Love In Time, in June of 2018. This new album displays the bands stylistic development as well as a more holistic approach to the album writing process. The record jumps between genres while simultaneously sticking to an overarching thematic element, leading the listener through a sonic and emotional journey of the ups and downs in love.

Miss Mojo has shared stages with many of New Orleans’ most iconic acts, such as Dumpstaphunk, Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Naughty Professor. Constantly learning from and being inspired by musicians in the city, the band is in a state of continuous growth. With the release of a new record and plans of national tours, Miss Mojo is hitting 2018 running and not looking back. They’re thrilled to be bringing their sound and energy to audiences across the country, celebrating life through playing, moving and singing together.
Wes Watkins
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.”
