The Gremlins are thrilled to once again be performing at The Mish!

Rock, jazz and blues influences can be heard throughout their high energy show as they deliver favorite covers and their own original songs up the Poudre Canyon.
My name is Sammy ‘T-Rex’ Davison, and I am a multi-instrumentalist from Fort Collins, Colorado; I play mandolin, fiddle, guitar, bass, and sing. I have played many shows in Colorado and have been featured on TV and the radio. I love music so much, and can not wait to expand with it even more.
Paradox is a young teen rock band that blends modern rock with heavy guitar to create their own unique sound. They will surprise all ages with their original songs and energetic performances. Their proudest achievement is being recognized as a “Blue Star Connection” band and you will find them playing all over CO!
Metaphysical Lamppost is a three piece rock/funk/jam/fusion band consisting of MQ Borocz on guitar and vocals, Krista Frable on drums and vocals, and Ethan Markey on bass. MQ Borocz and Krista Frable graduated from Poudre High School and Liberty Common High School in May and Ethan Markey is a sophomore at Fort Lewis College in Durango. They play original music and also enjoy to play improvised jams.

Out of the 10 young blues musicians, only two were girls and Grace was the only girl guitarist on the list!
Footnotes is a musical duo featuring Taylor Ault and Andres Jimenez, two inspired musicians with the purpose of creating music that is fun to play and reaches out to people in a way that will inspire and touch them as well. Taylor plays violin/fiddle while Andres plays acoustic guitar, both singing vocals. Their music is a mixture of acoustic contemporary, folk, and independent styles and their most recent song, “Barefoot Dreams,” is their first professionally recorded EP, appearing on RISE vol. 1, a local compilation CD produced by local studio Parker Recording.
Emma Marie is a 10 year old singer-songwriter from Northern Colorado. She has performed and recorded in Colorado and Los Angeles, California. Her passion is music and wants others to be encouraged by the messages in her songs.
Eli Slocumb is a rising 14-year-old Bluegrass mandolin player. In 2014 he recorded his original song Rockslide on the RISE Volume I CD, which has been played on the radio regionally and in Australia. Eli was featured on the cover of the Colorado Bluegrass Music Society’s December 2014 edition where he received the tagline “the Future of Bluegrass.” Recently Eli has become part of the bluegrass band Nice Hat Mister, which will perform at FoCoMx in April 2015 and at Avograss in August 2015.
