We are a rock and roll outfit from Denver, Colorado. We primarily play covers of great bands like the Grateful Dead, Neil Young, The Band, Widespread Panic, and others you may or may not have heard of.
Uncle Beef’s Band came to life in the fall of 2021 when bass player, James Roede, and lead vocalist and guitarist, John Marentette started jamming as a way to escape the madness of pandemic life. A few months later, Darcy Shaw, who is also a member of the band Vox de Ville, joined the jams as Beef’s drummer. Soon after, keyboardist Cole Michel, also a member of Ghost Revue, and his long time friend Joel Meyerson (lead guitar, vocals) joined the group, rounding out the powerful, soulful sound. Heck, I guess we have a few regular special guests too, like Matt Mitchell (vocals) from the band Vox de Ville, Colin Anderson on the saxophone, and Panos Aivas on the qanun.
