The Fox Street All Stars are coming your way: After touring regionally and joining forces for two national tours with Great Britain’s funkiest sons, The New Mastersounds, Colorado’s Fox Street All Stars are headed out on their very own headlining tour! This tour takes the boys through familiar and uncharted territory in the Northwest region- for regularFox Street stops like Jackson Hole and Sun Valley – as well as headlining and festival appearances throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

The year 2011 has already been a landmark year for Fox Street All Stars – receiving great reviews and press for their debut album, “Welcome To Mighty Pleasin’ ” (released Nov 2010 – co-produced by Josh Fairman of Kinetix), and sharing the stage with a diverse cross-section of groups and artists like U.K. funk sensations The New Mastersounds, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, Stanton Moore of New Orleans’ Galactic, hip hop maestro Lyrics Born, Tony Hall of Dumpstaphunk, and Austin TX’s very own southern rockers, Band of Heathens.

The 2011 tour will also include Fox Street’s very first festival headlining slot, closing out the main stage of the Hot Routt Music Festival July 23rd in beautiful Steamboat, Colorado. A few days later, Fox Street will share the stage supporting both Bela Fleck & the Original Flecktones AND Bruce Hornsby July 28th in Ketchum, Idaho for the Sun Valley Shakedown. To celebrate the end of an amazing summer 2011 season, FoxStreet All Stars are proud to be announced as direct support for the Tedeschi Trucks Band – featuring legendary slide guitarist Derek Trucks, blues queen Susan Tedeschi, members of the Allman Brothers Band, and more – at Fort Collins, CO’s annual Bohemian Nights festival!

PRESS FOR FOX STREET ALL STARS & ” WELCOME TO MIGHTY PLEASIN’ “

Colin Bird, Mountain Weekly News (Steamboat, CO) – “For a debut album, this is awe-inspiring work…”

Marquee Magazine (Boulder, CO) – 4/5 Stars

Timothy Dwenger, ListenUpDenver.com (Denver, CO) – “[Fox Street] cut their teeth sharing Denver stages with groups like Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, and Blues Traveler and are ready to take their show national. Fox Street has also made a name for themselves in the scene by orchestrating many memorable late night jams with heavy hitters like Stanton Moore of Galactic, Papa Mali, and Brian Jordan of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe.”

“[Fox Street] closed their set with a raging 8 or 10 minute version  of The Rolling Stones classic ‘Midnight Rambler’ which had every body in the house grooving along and hollering for more – which is A LOT more than most bands get when they are opening for a band with the draw of The New Mastersounds.”

Jenna Stecker, Mousike Magazine (Vail, CO) – “Meeting at the great American crossroads of blues, jazz, and country – with the natural end result being all rock n’ roll – are the Fox Street All Stars. They jam with a gritty sound like the Black Crowes, as well as the swing and upbeat vibe of Little Feat.”

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 Jambase.com, 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!
