Join BolderBeat for a Balanced Breakfast at The Mercury Cafe in Denver This Saturday


This Saturday, members of the BolderBeat community have been asked to speak at the Balanced Breakfast Denver chapter about their experiences in the Colorado music industry and their work with BolderBeat.

Balanced Breakfast Denver meets monthly, and meetings are open to anybody that is passionate about the music industry. Breakfast hosts Reed Fox and Mona Magno invited the BolderBeat team to attend for October and we’re thrilled! If you weren’t already familiar with our publication and community, here a snippet on what we do here at BolderBeat:

Founded in 2016, BolderBeat covers both local and national artists and events. Our site features single and video premieres, concert reviews and photography, and artist interviews written by a volunteer contributor network which extends from Colorado to Los Angeles. BolderBeat also works with industry insiders, record labels, and musicians themselves on event promotion, tour sponsorships, and content placement. BolderBeat has cultivated an amazing community of artists working with artists in its short time as a publication- writers and photographers work regularly to expose and promote the work of musicians, artists, and industry creatives whom they’re passionate about.

Our founder, Hannah Oreskovich, will be on site to answer questions at Balanced Breakfast about how your band should approach media for features, what the past and future of BolderBeat look like, and more. BolderBeat live event producer Zach Dahmen will also be available for a discussion and questions, and our whole Colorado contributor community has been invited to tell you about their experiences in the music industry and their work with BolderBeat.

Balanced Breakfast Bash Warmed Up Denver On Its First Snowy Night Last Week

By: Jura Daubenspeck

Each month the creative minds at Balanced Breakfast gather to discuss various key topics in Denver’s music scene. With the help of the organizers, hosts, and the equally passionate members, Balanced Breakfast serves as a group of local music industry professionals paving the way for an even more fruitful music scene for artists and music-lovers alike.

Last Thursday, November 17th, Balanced Breakfast hosted the Balanced Breakfast Bash, a music showcase where the walls of Syntax Physic Opera came alive with the musical stylings of Twin Flame Medicine, Amy Kress, and The Lollygags.

Twin Flame Medicine.

Syntax is easily one of my favorite intimate music venues in the city. Its cozy, warm-lit atmosphere and intricate wall decorations have your eyes wandering constantly, and the lounge-style arrangement near the stage keeps vibes cool and classy. Not to mention that they happen to serve the best Old Fashioneds, or “Corn Punks,” I’ve ever had.

Twin Flame Medicine took the stage first at the Balanced Breakfast Bash, serenading everyone with their soothing, groovy vibrations. Fronted by lead singer and ukulele player Monalicious, this band is one to most definitely check out if you have the chance. Their bluesy feel and funky melodies will beckon you into a calm and positive mindset. Check out their song “Style” for a little taste of what they’re about.

The Lollygags.

Rocky Mountain locals The Lollygags brought up the energy and kept true to their form next, gracing the stage with their grunge rock’n’roll vibes. Frontman Jonathan Snyder’s facial expressions and guitar solos were enough to grab anyone’s attention, but the entire band's presence was confident, cool, and ready to rock. Listen to their EP People I Know and you’ll quickly see what I mean.

Amy Kress.

Finally, electronic pop artist Amy Kress closed the evening with her booming vocals and soulful style. Switching between pure vocals, piano, and with Joel Rekiel on drums, Kress delivered a powerful, dance-worthy performance that had me humming her songs days later. She played a number of fan favorites, including hits from her recent album Fly.

Reed Fuchs.

Reed Fuchs, a Balanced Breakfast host who also happens to front Denver’s surrealist group DéCollage, provided the mellow but sultry interludes between artists with his DJ sets.

Balanced Breakfast Bash was the perfect way to warm up during the season’s first chilly snow. Keep in touch with the folks at Balanced Breakfast on their Facebook, and stay tuned for more upcoming announcements, meetups, and info on shindigs like this awesome bash from BolderBeat.
