THE MARTINI SHOT is a six-piece, horn-powered, Pop-Rock cover and original band based out of Southern Colorado. The Martini Shot has released four original projects with major influences of Barenaked Ladies, Reel Big Fish, Foo Fighters, 311, and many others. The band’s covers are high energy pop tunes in which they add horns to give it the “Martini Shot flavor”. Recognized as Southern Colorado’s Hottest Band, The Martini Shot are staples at local festivals and event series. Some of the band’s awards include the 2018 Best of Pueblo (Pueblo Chieftain), the 2015 Best of the Springs (Colorado Springs Gazette), and the 2013 Best Cover Band (Indy Music Awards – Colorado Springs Independent). The Martini Shot has had the privilege to open for Eddie Money, Blue Öyster Cult, Foghat, Firefall, Pure Prairie League and Great White. The band was established in 2000 with a majority of the members consisting of current or former local music teachers. The name, “Martini Shot,” refers to the Hollywood slang term for the last shoot of the day.
A modern, funky twist on New Orleans-inspired brass music. U-Turn Brass’ sound blends classic NOLA grooves with infectious pop hooks, influenced by hip-hop, funk, and a dash of Latin spice. Imagine the Dirty Dozen Brass Band jamming with Bruno Mars, Tupac, and Bon Jovi. We turn every gig into a second line celebration, bringing the party from street corners to festival stages. Join us for a taste of the Big Easy with a contemporary vibe – once you catch the U-Turn Brass bug, there’s no turning back. See you on the dance floor!
