Los Mocochetes are a 7-piece Chicano Funk band from Denver, CO. This colorful cast of characters fuses thoughtfully brazen, socio/politically charged song lyrics, groovilicious melodies and high-energy stage antics to create an immersive experience unlike anything you've ever seen before. Much like a machete, which can be used either as a tool to build or a weapon to kill, they have chosen to use their music to inspire and encourage positive social change, and they have a ton of fun along the way. Every show is different, but it's always a dance party!

The Django Festival Allstars bring the music of the legendary Gypsy Jazz Guitarist Django Reinhardt fully into the 21st century. Their unique, high energy performances pay tribute to Reinhardt, who is considered one of the greatest guitar players of all time. Reinhardt's driving, swinging style became known as "hot jazz" and it continues to grow in popularity throughout the world… in great part to the success of The Django Festival Allstars, who honor the traditions of this "gypsy jazz" adding their own interpretations, arrangements and original compositions with stunning virtuosity.
