Kessel Run
Kessel Run creates music for the body & the mind. The band was formed in Boulder, Colorado in 2016. In their first year, their playing has gained them some furious momentum, allowing them to play in venues such as the Fox Theatre in Boulder and the Bluebird Theater in Denver. With a heavy utilization of improvisation, Kessel Run combines Funk, Rock, and Dance Music. Jazz tones and intricacies meet the pulse-pounding grooves and energy of Rock & Roll. Join them as they travel to the forefront of the Colorado jam scene in less than 12 Parsecs.
