Biography

Colfax is a creative and energetic Funk/Rock/Roots band formed in Minneapolis during the spring of 2004. What differentiates them from most bands is the brotherhood that exists among band members. Having grown up and lived together, Colfax believes strongly in the music created and direction they are headed.

Their sound encompasses a wide variety of styles such as rock, funk, and heavy blues. In addition, these styles are spun with a heavy and unique funky twist that gives it a fresh new sound. Most of all, they pour everything they have into their music and the energy created during live performances directly reflects this.

**Accomplishment**

Beginning last fall Colfax entered Bodog’s World Wide Battle of the Bands for a spot on a reality series and a One Million dollar record deal. The competition started off with 10,000 bands around the world for only one to be the winner. The battle began with an online vote advancing us and 98 other Minnesota bands to an audition round at the 7th St. Entry. Once again Colfax advanced in front of a sold out crowd leading us to the Regional Finals on the Main stage at First Avenue. In the regional finals our performance along with our crowds support (showing up in two packed school buses) we advanced to the National Finals at the House of Blues in Chicago. Unfortunately we did not make it to the World Finals Reality Show but feel extremely proud of our ability to make it to the Final 20 bands out of 10,000 around the world.

3 Summers ago Colfax joined the Ourstage competition for a spot at the 10,000 lakes music festival. Out of 500 bands we won a spot at the 2008 10,000 Lakes Festival.
