Wendy Clark Band
The Wendy Clark Band is a Denver-based original rock band that has evolved from Tequila Mockingbird. Active on the Front Range music circuit and indie scene since 1996, Wendy is a singer, composer, rhythm guitarist, bandleader, independent-recording artist, manager, and promoter. Her music is classified under roots-rock but adds an unmistakable playful voice and infectious melody combined with modern philosophical meanderings and "been there, hated that" themes mixed with a twinge of nostalgia, that are catchy, powerful, and kept fresh by delving into multiple genres.
Wendy has released three critically-acclaimed full-length CDs under Tequila Mockingbird, has performed over 1,000 festivals and gigs regionally including A Taste of Colorado, Adams County Fair, The CHUN Peoples Fair (1998-2014), toured in the Rockies into Wyoming and through New Mexico, appeared on live TV and radio (Denver's Channel 2 Evening News, KRFC FM, and 1190 AM), released dozens of videos (The Honeymoon and Catching On receiving tens of thousands of views on her YouTube), and opened at sold out shows for bands such as Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, The Samples, Bob Schneider, and Chris Daniels and The Kings. She has opened up for Tim McGraw at Fiddler's Green, sat in with The Refreshments, Hazel Miller, and backed up Brian Blush (The Refreshments) and Jamon Scott (The Toluenes) as well as collaborated and recorded with bassist Rob Squires of Big Head Todd and the Monsters on UFO (1998). Wendy has also worked with award-winning sound engineers/producers Eric Shiveley (Alien-American 2004) and Bill Thomas (UFO 1998, Luck and Trouble 2010) and multi-GRAMMY recipient, David Glasser.
The Legendary Hitchhikers
Denver’s tribute to the music of Tom Petty and his many influences! The Legendary Hitchhikers is a six piece band that delves deep into TP’s rich catalog, capturing the dynamic emotions and unique tones that have made this music so popular for decades.
Tom Petty’s music truly is timeless - as popular today as it was back when Tom and his band played “Refugee” on Saturday Night Live in 1979. Most rock and roll loving people can name at least four or five Tom Petty songs that they absolutely love…but when they start to hear hit after hit that love only grows stronger.
The Hitchhikers also pay homage to other great artists, classic to modern, that have guided Petty’s work, such as: Bob Dylan, the Stones, George Harrison and the Beatles, Jeff Lynn…even Elvis. There's something for everyone when the Legendary Hitchhikers come out to play!
