Ottis Coleman Memorial Jam Session 1PM

The Railbenders Authority 8PM

 
It is with a heavy, HEAVY heart that I share that Ottis Coleman passed away September 22nd. He was my band mate for years; a great guitarist, singer, songwriter, arranger and my very dear friend. He will be SO missed. I love you, my brother. Rest in Peace, OC -Mark Tays

They've been called "country," "alt-country," and "outlaw country," but the phrase that might best describe the Railbenders is "hard country." This Denver band has been playing unabashed, straight-no-chaser music that pulls no punches since 2000. The Railbenders have opened for country greats Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, and David Allan Coe. As well, they've shared bills with rock legends like ZZ Top, John Fogerty, Peter Frampton, the Doobie Brothers and .38 Special. www.railbenders.com
