The Trainwreckers / Carnie Bums / Johnny Got Rox
Add to Cal
Like the old three ring circuses, the Carnie Bums use a three man songwriting attack to create an eclectic mix of original rock music. Switching instruments, switching genres, switching vocalists; it's all part of the Carnie Bums routine. Like a midget being shot out of a cannon, the Carnie Bums explode on the stage with a high energy set that ranges from 70's retro rock, blues fused rock, modern rock, groove rock, punk, honky-tonk and more. Loud guitars, pounding drums, and a steady groove keep this carnival interesting for bars in the Colorado area!
We started as a rock, blues, classic rock cover band in the Denver area. From there, we have added our own originals and melded modern rock and punk stylings to classic rock and blues. We now focus on original tunes, but love to throw in the covers from the 60's all the way to today. On any given night you might hear the Rolling Stones, Snoop Dogg, Kings of Leon, Beastie Boys, Talking Heads, Grateful Dead or more.
Jamie & Jodie Ferguson have been making music together for over 20 years. The sisters started out acoustically as The Sisters' Ferguson, performing at pubs and coffee shops throughout the metro denver area. Together vocally, there was a magic that was unmistakable. The duo however, had a bigger plan; following the footsteps of their father, musician (Rodney Ferguson), they soon formed their first band The Trainwreckers.
Over the years they made a name for themselves around town, developing their unique style. They played everywhere from bars and showcase venues, to theatres and festivals, all the while trying to find the "perfect blend" of players for the group. They believe they have truly found this with previous members Aaron Garcia (guitar), Jeff Martin (drums) and newest member Dani Harrison (bass). This is a "must-see" live show, entertaining and 100% energy!
The Trainwreckers are just finishing up their studio album "For the Record" and are so excited to share it with all of you.
The members of this fine act have been gracing the stages of Denver for many years...in an array of different highly noted regional acts (namely Soul Thieves and Rubber Planet), amalgamating three years ago into this "Rags to Riches R-N-R Act". Meet the boys of Johnny Got Rox!!!! Together, Ryan Donley - Lead Guitar & Vocals, Greg Ferguson – Lead Vocals & Guitar, Ron Eenhuis – Bass & Vocals and Steveo Johnson - Drums, Percussion/vocals and Greg Gibb - Guitar...are helping to redefine what makes the Denver music scene so great! Their rawkus, earthy, brand of Rock and Roll is fantastic and not to be missed!
