The best kept secret in music


"On the Town: Bits of What's Doing in the local music, arts and entertainment scene"

Tucked away on South Broadway about a block north or Herman's Hideaway is a cozy little joint named Cero's. Unlike the club just to its south, the name doesn't draw immediate recognition... but it soon will.
Cero's is a renovated old two story home with a unique southwestern decor. The friendly environment causes all who enter once to enter again. Add to that some great music and it's destined to become one of Denver's better known hot spots.
Tuesday nights feature jam sessions led by The
Compilation Band. Usual guests in include Capricorn and Vacant Excuses. Capricorn has a sound that is rock, jazz and almost tropical. Though the music is smooth and easy to listen to, it is also passionate and moving. For a band that has been together less than a year, Capricorn is tight and talented.
Sharing the stage were members of seven bands, sometimes all at once. The various musicians all slipped into the routine as if they had been practicing for months... a feat that always amazes me.
Cero's seems to have become a hangout for musicians. And if you go, we think it will become your hangout too.

Feeling a bit camera shy


The idea of James and The Devil came about in late 2003. Jim Campbell and Adam Herman were both writing music together in a small town in the middle of Missouri. Eager to start a band, they picked up and moved to Denver, Colorado in early 2004. There they made a name for themselves as an acoustic duo throughout the coffee shops and small bars. After playing with a few musicians throughout the months they met Dan Grant, an auxiliary percussionist, who joined up with the band called Capricorn at the time, and became an acoustic trio. Eventually it came time to expand and they set their sites on an addition to the rhythm section. After playing with a number of drummers and bass players they met Matt Stoner, a drummer from Fort Collins. Matt's dedication was such that he would continually drive 3 hours, 4 to 5 days a week to practice and play shows at any venue they could get our hands on. A rigorous weekly schedule is how they eventually met up with such bands as Vacant Excuses, Vudu 72, Amphibious Jones, and Sol Vista, to name a few. When the band Sol Vista split ways, Josh Archibeque and Dave Ross both joined up with Capricorn to finally complete the equation. Now with Dave on the fiddle and Josh on the Bass, Capricorn became James and The Devil and has become a high energy Jam Band with thoughtful lyrics, tribal beats, funky bass lines, bluegrass fiddle, and the most important ingredient, passion.
