Come out and be impressed with the musical skills of these local high school students. They take their classic rock seriously and are also writing some cool original songs. They are fresh out of getting into the famous Mad Dog Recording Studio and making some recordings with sound wizard, Ralph Pitt. They should be well rehearsed for our show and will rock the room right. Here’s some words from their website. Sleepy Justice rocks! Check them out this week or at the 18th Annual Mt. Sopris Music Fest downtown on July 6th. I bet you will become a fan, too.
“FRESH MUSIC FROM CARBONDALE COLORADO”
“ABOUT SLEEPY JUSTICE Our band members are sophomores from RFHS and CRMS. Our band truly began in 7th grade when we used used to jam out together for fun after band class. Through the years, Sleepy Justice evolved into the band we know today with the help of mentors like Dan Rosenthal and Jason Jones. Now, you can catch Sleepy Justice playing shows at venues all around the Roaring Fork Valley. These shows will allow us to raise enough funds to produce our first recorded album. Were enjoying our journey so far and look forward to what’s ahead!”
See you at the shows!
