Tenth Mountain Division
Tenth Mountain Division revives the soul, spirit and eclectic intersection of influences that birthed rock’n’roll, afresh for the modern ear. Just a fancy way of saying that we’re bringing back classic rock, because that’s what we love! Originating from Boulder, CO, founders Winston Heuga (Mandolin) and MJ Ouimette (Electric/Acoustic Guitar) originally sought to create an acoustic bluegrass outfit. After a few years dedicated to playing bluegrass, the duo transitioned to an electrified, rock’n’roll sound. Here they found their stride when Ouimette and Heuga collaborated with bassist Connor Dunn, drummer Tyler Gwynn and the ever-talented keyboard player Campbell Thomas. Together the quintet creates a diverse soundscape that combines soaring electric guitar leads and jabbing keys while retaining its roots in bluegrass with Heuga’s incomparable mandolin style. The rhythmic interplay of Dunn’s driving bass fused with Gwynn’s incendiary drumming round out the unique sounding band that is truly a style of its own; what the band refers to as 'Ski Rock". Tenth Mountain Division has evolved greatly since its inception but retains its roots in the American musical styles of rock, jazz, bluegrass, prog and the crossroads between them all. The band has performed throughout Colorado from Boulder’s Fox Theatre, the Aggie Theatre, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Pardee Palooza Festival at State Bridge Amphitheatre. Following the March 2016 release of their debut album 'Cracks in the Sky' the band went on their first national tour leading them through Chicago, Columbus, Nashville and one of jam music's altar festivals, Summer Camp. Following their tour the band headlined the coveted Fox Theatre in their hometown of Boulder. Since, TMD has opened for the likes of influences like Jeff Austin and contemporaries such as The Magic Beans and Spafford. In 2017, the band expanded their Colorado roots with their 'Ski-Rock 2017' tour seeing the band play in many of the state's ski towns, including stops in Vail, Telluride, Durango, Crested Butte and Steamboat Springs for a SOLD OUT Winterwondergrass late night show! The band will embark their next tour, Snow to Sand, going through Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas this spring and will return to Colorado in April for shows at Durango, CO's Animas City Theatre and Boulder, CO's The Fox once again.
