Listen Up Denver! Launches A New Weekly Music Series: SoulFax Sessions

SoulFax Sessions is Denver’s newest free weekly music series.  Featuring members of some of the best young bands in town, SoulFax Sessions start Thursday January 10th, 2013, and will be presented every Thursday thereafter at Park House.

“Everybody in Denver knows the weekend starts on Thursday, and now Listen Up Denver! and Park House are providing Denver the perfect excuse to sweat, sin, shimmy and shake their way into the weekend.”

Park House and Listen Up Denver! are teaming up to present SoulFax Sessions every Thursday Night at Park House. Park House is a restaurant and bar that opened a few months ago in the old PS 1515 Catering House at the corner of Colfax and Madison, and the music loving owners have remodeled the place beautifully. Given the size (capacity 242), the warm environment, and the eager team in charge, this event has the potential to become a weekly fixture on every Denver music lovers calendar.

SoulFax Sessions brings together a staggering group of talented musicians from some of the most danceable, fun, and up-and-coming bands Denver’s vibrant music scene has to offer. Each week will feature a diverse line-up of 3-5 musicians culled from a roster over over 30 local musicians who currently are involved in the project. The vision is to have the Park House bumping every Thursday night as these great musical minds bringing live music and dancing to a section of Colfax that recently lost Rock Bar. All these musicians will be approaching the night with Funk and Soul in mind as they aim to get people’s feet moving on the dance floor.

At this time, SoulFax Sessions will feature members of: Great American Taxi, Leftover Salmon, The Congress, Fox Street All-Stars, YAMN, Kinetix, ATOMGA and The Whales, with appearances and sit-ins by many others. The best part is that these line-ups will allow members of different bands to play together, encouraging collaboration among the community of amazing musicians we have here in Denver.

The first “SoulFax Session” on Thursday January 10th will feature: Jonathan Meadows (The Congress), Mark Levy (The Congress/Bonfire Dub), Jonah Wisneski (The Whales) and Jack Watson (The Oak Creek Band).

SoulFax Sessions are FREE and on January 10th we will also be doing the following giveaways which can only be entered by attending: A custom Listen Up Denver! Silver Surfer Vaporizer (retail value $400), a $25 dollar bar tab courtesy of Park House, tickets to some hot shows including YAMN, Rob Drabkin, and Pigs on a Wing (Featuring Muprh of STS9), and Listen Up Denver! gear.  Come for the giveaways if you want, but you’ll be staying for the music!


Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
