This Saturday at The Ogden was definitely a night to remember. Colfax was buzzing outside the theater with people trying to score tickets to get into this highly anticipated sold out show. The nights opening act started out with Sunsquabi who played an energetic jam session that any live music fan would enjoy. Up next came a music producer who goes by the name Gibbz, he jumped on stage and damn near stole the show with his upbeat sound and incredible showmanship. I’ll be sure to keep a lookout for the next time this man is in town! Then around 11:30 The Floozies came on stage and the whole crowd blew up in excitement. The Floozies duo are made up of two eclectic brothers Matt and Mark Hill from Lawrence Kansas, and with Matt playing guitar and Mark carrying the beat on the drums these guys can put on a show that will get any ones hips moving. Their fresh approach to electronic music mixed with that old school funky sound kept the crowd loud and on their feet the whole night. Just when everyone thought the show was coming to an end, the unexpected happened, out of the shadows with his saxophone Griz got on stage and brought the show to a close with an incredible song that made the sold-out crowd go absolutely bonkers! Overall, I think it’s safe to say that everyone left the show satisfied, we were even met outside with six inches of fresh powder that had fallen in just a few hours during the show. If you’re interested in checking out The Floozies music, the band just released their new album “Do Your Thing” on January 27th and you can download it for free on their website at flooziesduo.com or on SoundCloud.
