Local band’s funk infused jam returns again

— Former local band, String Board Theory, will return to play their first show in Steamboat since New Year’s Eve. Check them out this Friday, June 13th at Schmiggity’s.

Last fall the band followed a somewhat natural progression down to the Front Range to pursue their musical endeavors more consistently. While new production has not yet been undertaken, locals and visitors can expect the same energetic performance of funk infused jam, combined with a little rock and acid jazz. Mouthful.

The turnout is expected to be big, as many of their local fans plan to take advantage of the full blown dance party that has accompanied their Steamboat performances. Over their 7 year career, the band has carved out a sound influenced by a number of genres and has successfully managed not to sound like an incoherent mix tape. Jeff Barlow evidences a good understanding of rhythm both as the band’s bass player and in his other endeavor as a DJ, Jeraff. In addition to String Board Theory, he has been keeping busy on the electronic front having played a number of venues in Denver including the new 1 Up on Colfax.

Steamboat can expect to see a maturity in their playing and the band are excited to return for an alumni show. Although I knew Jeff when he looked like Jesus, so I’m not intimidated.

To make sure you don’t miss the show, tickets can be bought in advance at Schmiggity’s on Lincoln, or on line @ https://register.capturepoint.com/reg/cat_program_list.cfm?season_id=7403. Tickets are $5 and you won’t be disappointed.
