About 11:00 Saturday night the band was loading gear out of the Merc when Geoff said, “That was a fun day.” Have to agree with you buddy!
WinterFest was bound to be fun – but playing outdoors in December in Denver had us worried about seeing our breath when we sang. Mother Nature had […]

Small stage but big night at the Waterloo. Couldn’t believe how the energy from the crowd picked us up all night long. Loads of people came out – from the bride and groom whose wedding we played last month, to our photographer/bass player buddy and his posse, to a deep cast of […]

Check out these logistics from the 3-course weekend Zen Mustache completed on August 11-12, 2012. We started with a 5am wake-up call to play at the DaVita 5k run/walk fundraiser in Denver. After packing up gear we headed out for groceries and other supplies, then boogied up to the first annual Ranchstock festival […]

Stage Stop in Rollinsville. Cool mountain evening. Neon in the windows and friendly staff serving pitchers as the coal trains rumble down from the mines. These mountain communities have little to hide and plenty to share, we just need to visit. Last night Zen Mustache met new friends and reconnected with […]

How to have an epic evening.
1. Book a show at a venue that has the friendliest, chillest people. In the mountains is preferred.
2. See if they’ve got amazing home-grown cooking on the menu for the night you’ve booked.
3. Jambalaya works great for this purpose.
4. Get another great band to join you for the night. Be […]

Week number two of three that pairs Zen Mustache ‘mountain rock’ with boot-thumping bluegrass music. Last week at Buffalo Rose, this week at the Oriental Theater, and next week more great stuff queued up at the Jamestown Merc with special guest Chain Station.
What makes a great night of music? Sometimes it’s hitting everything tight […]

A bowl of ice cream and leftover birthday cake, letting the adrenaline gradually dissipate from my body. Had another thrilling night out with the band – played a fun show over in Golden at the Buffalo Rose. That place is under new ownership/management and it’s got all the right ingredients to start hitting […]

Another great party with our friends down at Bacaro last night. I’m always amazed there’s yet to be a show that comes off without a hitch – it seems every single time ZM plays out there’s something that keeps us on our toes. Last night our sound man extraordinaire Ethan Bernstein called in […]

We had a blast working the room on behalf of the Pancreas Party fundraiser event last night at the Buffalo Rose in Golden! Those guys from Chain Station blasted the roof off. After shaking our booties to their “mountain music” we were invited along with show opener Erik Husman to jump back on […]

Feelin’ the love at the Lazy Dog tonight! Lots of old friends came for the party, and we made several new friends throughout the night in downtown Boulder. Shouts out to Tristan Fox, sound tech extraordinairre, and Jarett Mason, who helped us out with some sweet mandolin. It was great to reconnect […]
