What are you doing for New Years Eve this year? Let me guess. You are going to fight the crowds down town, spend way too much money on drinks, in a bar where you had to pay a cover to get into in the first place. On January 1st, you won’t remember any of it, but your wallet will be totally empty and your credit card will be maxed. Well…here is a better idea, go to Snake River Saloon in Keystone! I know, I know, now you’re saying “why would I ever want to do that?” Because On December 30th and 31st, that is where you can hear one of the best cover bands in Colorado, Swerve. Stop crying, you won’t miss them if you can’t make it to Keystone, they play in the Denver Metro area year round.
Swerve is a self proclaimed rock and rockin’ country band. If you like to go out and shake your groove thang, while listening to amazing musicians play rock, classic rock, and country, wherever Swerve is, that is where you want to be.
Jason (Jay) Abbott is the front man and lead singer of Swerve. He has been working the Colorado crowd for over twenty years. As a result of his rigorous training with vocal coach Dr. Scott Martin, Jay will fill your ears with lyrical bliss, and sounds just as good on song fifty as he does on song one. Nate Bilo is on lead guitar. Nate has a music degree from Seattle Pacific University, and has spent a lot of time touring the West coast and Midwest. He has also been teaching guitar for over eight years. Despite being the youngest member of Swerve, Nate plays well beyond his years. Chris Young is on bass and backing vocals. Like Jay, Chris has been playing the Colorado Scene for over twenty years. With his undeniable stage presence, Chris is one of the most sought after bass players in Denver. Todd Strong is on drums and backing vocals. Todd made his way to Colorado from Maryland years ago, and has been playing around Colorado for over ten years. He may be best known for his time with the band Wish Doctor, and of course the funny faces he makes while poundin’ the bongos. Mark Farris is on Keyboard. Mark is the newest member of Swerve, joining the band only a month ago, and has already begun to meld his sound with the rest of the band. Though we have not heard much from Mark yet, we look forward to hearing him tickle that ivory more and more.
If you can’t make it to Keystone, please be sure to check out these amazing guys any other weekend. Check out their website at swervelive.com to see when and where they are playing. And don’t forget to tell them I sent you.
