Born from the culture of the Colorado mountains, The Runaway Grooms are bringing a refreshing take on contemporary jam band music. With pocket grooves, syncopated rhythms, and expansive tones, the band captures elements of funk and psychedelic rock while simultaneously celebrating traditional songwriting roots of Americana music. Dueling guitar solos, 3-part harmonies, and a screaming lap steel guitar, combine to create a unique soundscape that takes listeners through an experiential musical journey.
New Pleasures belongs to a little-known subgenre of the musical universe best described as “patchouli metal.” A no-frills four-piece, the band makes for curious visual company at first blush.
"We are more of an old-school ’70s rock band. You know, Thin Lizzy, Blue Öyster Cult, or ZZ Top or Cactus. I guess we can be pretty fired up sometimes, and we like to play fast."
