      Mr. Right

      Mr. Right is an alternative pop band based out of Denver, Colorado. The sound of Mr. Right can be characterized by it's soaring vocal melodies, crisp acoustic guitar lines, powerful drums, warm keyboard lines and lyrics about life, love and the pursuit of happiness. Before the formation of Mr. Right, Adam and Jarrod Barraza have been playing music for nine years. Through the instruction of numerous teachers, Adam Barraza has been able to craft his drum playing to a unique and powerful rhythmic force that lays the perfect percussive foundation to the Mr. Right sound. Jarrod Barraza's technical approach to the guitar and vision of Mr. Right has been an additionally key asset to their distinctive sound. Playing primarily on the acoustic guitar rather than the electric, Jarrod utilizes the warm overtones and crisp colors of the instrument to drive the alternative pop sound of Mr. Right. The final piece of Mr. Right is Drew Torres. Drew adds his bright vocals and warm keyboards to complete the Mr. Right sound. The name, Mr. Right comes from the combined feeling of all three members of a band with a sound that ‘feels right.' Mr. Right have played shows around the Denver/Fort Collins areas at venues such as: The Aggie in Fort Collins, The Marquis, The Lion's Lair, The Bluebird and Quixote's True Blue in Denver, and 3J's in Johnstown. Denver's modern rock KTCL (channel 93.3) has also presented Mr. Right at 1515 club and on the "locals only" radio show. The Mr. Right sound has also been described as "Fun and Energetic" says Elena Curtis of the Scene Magazine. Whether the setting is a theatre, a bar or even a coffee shop, Mr. Right's alternative and acoustic approach to pop music is one that will turn heads.

      The Violet Lights

      THE VIOLET LIGHTS are a rock duo based in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California. Recording their debut EP, Sex & Sound, at the legendary Hollywood studio Sunset Sound, they emerged with what is being described as a “Velvet Underground descendant collection of songs more befitting of the ‘garage’ label than, say, The Strokes” and a sound labeled “a mash-up of Britpop, NYC garage rock and West Coast guitar musings.” Sex & Sound has begun to garner media coverage worldwide, with critics taking notice of the high production standards and fun, radio-friendly quality of the self-produced, self-funded record. Bloggers are designating the five-song effort as "full of muscular guitars and hummable hooks," and deeming the songs "energetic and catchy" while predicting, "Sex & Sound is undoubtedly all they will need to find success." In late 2011, the EP appeared at #12 on the CMJ Radio 200 Adds Chart and remained on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart for several weeks. In support of its upcoming April 2012 release, The Violet Lights embarked on a on extensive two-month North American tour in early 2012, including performances at South by Southwest in March.
