The Dendrites

The Dendrites


The Dendrites are an intsrumental mix of traditional vibes, and modern techniques. Through the roots and branches of long time friendships, this ensemble has joined together in the ever constant persuit of joy and unity through love and music. Dancing is release, music is communication, and the celebration is the revolution.



The Dendrites have been playing throughout Colorado since 2003, embodying the sounds of 1960's traditional reggae, rocksteady and ska, while combining elements of modern day jazz and rock. In 2009, they released their debut album "Mountain Standard Time" on Megalith Records and proceeded on a summer tour of the West Coast. After returning home, they spent time preparing for a live album, which was independently released by the band in early 2011.

Now, they continue to play better and better gigs in the Colorado, write new music, and add members making the band a plentiful orchestra of Ska. The Dendrites have shared the stage with nationally known artists such as: The Skatalites, The Slackers, The Drastics, Unwritten Law, The Voodoo Glow Skulls, King Django, Suburban Legends, The Debonaires, Fishbone and OzoMatli.
