The 3rd Annual Grand Junction Off-Road Presented by U.S. Bank will proudly feature Austin, Texas native Shakey Graves, a one-man electric folk band with national acclaim recently seen on the Late Show with David Letterman and Conan. Witnessing Shakey Graves simultaneously stomping a handmade suitcase kick drum and a tambourine while belting out lyrics and strumming his guitar to his recent hit, “Roll the Bones”, gets respect from even the most discerning musician.
An experienced actor who originally appeared on the popular television show Friday Night Lights, Alejandro Rose-Garcia has shifted his focus to music, gaining national acclaim as Shakey Graves. His most recent album, And the War Came was recorded in Rose-Garcia’s Austin home, featuring a beautifully energetic collaboration with other musicians, highlighted by the song “Dearly Departed”, performed with Denver-based singer Esme Patterson.
Blending lo-fi, foot-stomping folk with bluesy rock, Shakey Graves picks, slides and hammers his guitar while belting out powerful gospel-like vocals for a sound unlike any other performer on the road today.
