The Dikeou Collection's eighth installment of the 'Fresh Jazz and Crisp Vinyl Series' will feature a special performance by The Josh Trinidad Trio featuring Gordon Koch & AJ Salas on Friday, September 19, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Dave Ashton, Program Manager for KGNU Denver 88.5 FM and member of local hip hop group Council of Word is the guest DJ and will spin rare & classic records from the Collection's extensive Vinyl Archive. Trinidad and his band will play at 8:00 pm. This event will take place at Dikeou Pop-Up: Colfax, 312 East Colfax Avenue, and is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
Josh Trinidad is an accomplished trumpet player who was born and raised in Colorado and has performed and recorded with musicians like Sage Francis and Wheelchair Sports Camp. While proficient in various styles, jazz is at the core of his musical influence. He studied music and education at The University of Colorado, Boulder, and currently runs the Jazz Odyssey program on KUVO 89.3 FM. Drummer Gordon Koch also studied jazz at CU-Boulder for six years, and tours nationally and releases albums with the Denver hardcore/metal act Call of the Void on Relapse Records. Pianist AJ Salas is a session musician in the Denver Soul/Funk/electro scene playing in The Hypertextuals with Venus Cruz and DJ Check One and other sessions with Cory Baker. He has shared the stage with Stanley Turrentine and Ike Turner, and has performed live on FM 103.5 the Fox's Radio show Strictly Blues. The musically diverse trio will perform an improvised set of triphop/metal/fusion influenced free jazz.
The 'Fresh Jazz and Crisp Vinyl Series' focuses on jazz musicians living and working today, whose names are not yet embossed into history, but whose energy, wisdom, well worn instruments, and presence in the jazz scene are further defining our admiration for this life form called Jazz music. Selections from the vinyl archive will thus serve as a remembrance to all the jazz greats who came before the jazz musicians invited to play at this bi-monthly series.

Cash'd Out (The Ultimate Johnny Cash Tribute)
Bluebird Theater, 3317 E Colfax Ave, Denver CO 80206 -
Over the past couple of decades, tribute bands have become big business in the world of concert promotion. And, not surprisingly, the more popular ones are the acts that are most authentic. Such is the case with Cash’d Out, a San Diego based band, that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets. How can you tell? Well, beyond critics having anointed Cash’d Out (Douglas Benson on vocals, Kevin Manuel on guitar, Ryan Thomas on bass and George Bernardo on drums) the “next best thing to Johnny Cash,” and the group having won four San Diego Music Awards for Best Tribute Band, the real proof lies in what members of Cash’s inner circle have said. “Cindy Cash came to a show, we made her cry and she gave me a necklace with Johnny's hair in a glass locket,” explains front man Douglas Benson. Benson added that Cash producer Lou Robin has also been to several Cash’d Out shows, and claimed that if he closed it eyes it was like “going back in time.” The only tribute band endorsed by the official Johnny Cash web page, JohnnyCash.com, Cash’d Out has played to over 1.2 million fans since forming in 2005.

Since forming Soulive in 1999, guitarist Eric Krasno, organist Neal Evans and drummer Alan Evans have developed a reputation as one of the most sought after instrumental soul-funk trios around, a hard-touring live act that's thrown down everywhere from small rock clubs to opening arena shows for the Rolling Stones. This past March marked Soulive's 10th Anniversary - ten years since the band got together for the first time at a home studio just outside of Woodstock, NY and recorded Get Down. Over the past 10 years, Soulive has covered a lot of ground - musically and literally.
The band has traveled to nearly every corner of the world, touring Ghana, Russia, nearly all of Europe, Brazil, and Japan (nine times!). They've been across America on dozens of tours. New Orleans Jazz Fest has become a home away from home. And in their actual home, New York City, they are closing in on their 100th show.
