Tenth Mountain Division
Tenth Mountain Division revives the soul, spirit and eclectic intersection of influences that birthed rock'n'roll, afresh for the modern ear. Just a fancy way of saying that we're bringing back classic rock, because that's what we love! Originating from Boulder, CO, founders Winston Heuga (Mandolin) and MJ Ouimette (Electric/Acoustic Guitar) originally sought to create an acoustic bluegrass outfit. After a few years dedicated to playing bluegrass, the duo transitioned to an electrified, rock'n'roll sound. Here they found their stride when Ouimette and Heuga collaborated with bassist Connor Dunn, drummer Tyler Gwynn and the ever-talented keyboard player Campbell Thomas. Together the quintet creates a diverse soundscape that combines soaring electric guitar leads and melodic keyboards while retaining its roots in bluegrass with Heuga's incomparable mandolin style. The rhythmic interplay of Dunn's driving bass fused with Gwynn's incendiary drumming round out the unique sounding band that is truly a style of its own; what the band refers to as a "grass'n'roll ski band". Tenth Mountain Division has evolved greatly since its inception but retains its roots in the American musical styles of rock, jazz, improvisation, bluegrass and the crossroads between them all. The band has performed throughout Colorado from Boulder's Fox Theatre to Pardee Palooza Festival at State Bridge Amphitheatre. TMD's performance at the Fox Theater's installment of the Summer Camp: On The Road competition earned the band a slot at the 2016 Summer Camp Music Festival. Previously they've placed 2nd in CU's 2015 Battle of the Bands as well as winning fan favorite in that competition. Recently, the band released their first album 'Cracks In The Sky' in March of 2016, available now on all platforms!
