Marty Sammon shared the stage with Otis Rush for five years until he received the call to tour the world and perform with Blues legend and Rock and marty sammonRoll Hall of Fame inductee, Buddy Guy. For almost a decade, Marty has been a member of the “Damn Right Blues Band” and has contributed as a studio musician on Buddy Guy’s most recent recordings. Marty Sammon’s intense playing reaches beyond the basic rules of finger placement and posture at the keyboard; his hands become blurred motions as the rest of his body matches the unpredictability and soul of his improvisation.

Josh Fairman plays bass for the rock/pop, Electro/funk group Kinetix. Based out of Denver, CO, Kinetix is known for their outrageous high-energy shows blending party rock, funk, pop, hip hop and live electronica. George Horn and Eric Luba of Analog Son also join the Joe Marcinek Band. At the core of Analog Son’s many wild creations lies funk mavens Jordan Linit and Josh Fairman, two pioneers of the futuristic funk sound. Hailing from Denver, CO, Analog Son has had great success recruiting top-notch musicians for their countless collaborations.

Dave Watts plays drums for the Denver funk band The Motet. The Motet is a world-class improvisational funk band that has dedicated more than a decade to the healing powers of funky dance music. Although the early years of the band saw a constantly revolving cast of musicians, the most recent incarnation has been touring the country for the last several years developing a new and unique style with roots in funk, Afrobeat, disco, electronic music, and soul.
