About the Event
DEan Bonzani is a:
Masterful wordsmith. Saucy saloon singer. Bar hardened bard. Beer loving balladeer. Dog fan. Beardy guy. Insouciant tunester. Grizzled gitbox whomper. Liminal space explorer.
Bonzani brings a zesty hybrid of alt folk and acoustic rock in the style of Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, The Pixies' Black Francis, David Bowie during his Ziggy years, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Elvis Costello, with a splash of Robyn Hitchcock. From tender, heart-wrenching confessionals to full on celtic blues-soaked raga interludes, he brings out the power and delicacy of the acoustic guitar in a way that's all his own. He also makes awesome chili.
He’s opened for artists like Ben Harper, Oingo Boingo side project Food For Feet, Big Drill Car, ALL, Major Lingo, Buckethead, Brant Bjork and the bros (formerly of Kyuss), and many more. With seven albums under his belt, he's currently at work on “Spiderbox,” the follow up to 2019's “Windows In The Sky.”
Bittersweet Highway is the musical duo made up of Rene’ Janiece and Wayne McKinzie. They make their home in Cedaredge, Colorado. This singer-songwriter husband and wife bring their love for many musical styles to their writing and their performance. Stories gathered through years spent traveling the borderlands and backroads of the American West shape their original songs. Unique harmonies, surprising phrasing, and unrestrained emotion are part of their distinct style. All of these influences combine to create a memorable listening experience, whether they are featuring one of their many original songs or showcasing their interpretation of an eclectic cover. Their ease with each other, and candid rapport with the audience, make them a true pleasure to experience live as they share both the bitter and sweet found scattered along the road of life.
