"Zolopht Saves The Lost Lake From a Near-Silence Experience"

As the smoke cleared, only one group from the original lineup of the night remained, Western Slope favorite Zolopht. The group has formed a reputation of an absurd willingness to hit the road for any crowd, and on Wednesday, that crowd partied with the rigor and gusto to rage the bar until close.

Ducking into the small venue on what has become a typically warm Denver night, the swift maneuver from the doorway into the bar area felt as natural as the herbal scent that accompanied the over-flow of Rasta themed clothing. The stage was dark and the air was filled with uncertainty on who exactly would perform. Turns out, Zolopht’s hefty bag of past shows came in handy, as they knew a bassist in Denver, Danny Pelitti, who was able to round up his reggae/rock/hip-hop fusion group Project 432 to support them as an opener.

The thing about Zolopht’s music, if you have yet to catch it, is it truly comes from an original place while reminding you precisely of the bands they cite as inspiration.

Although the group was lacking two very important members, Danny Ohlson and Cody Kreiger of the trumpet and saxophone, respectively, the stage still appeared jam packed with the six attending musicians. Blasting into old and new tracks, like personal favorite “Busy Signal” off the band’s eponymous throwback album, the tight quarters felt a little tighter — which seemed more than alright.

During “Booty Call,” percussionist Greg Indivero grasped an opportunity to lose himself in his own booty-shaking-tamborine-flailing get down. Want to add sound to that visual? Check out the track here. When announcing bassists Geoff Mueck’s birthday as they rocked a new number, the vibe on stage was almost as if the boys were alone in a room, celebrating a friend’s birthday between just the six of them. Ian McGowan on the violin stole much of the spotlight as he shredded melody after melody.

One of the greatest parts of a live Zolopht set is the way they share the stage. There never seems to be one front-man, they all take turns ripping solos and singing the lyrics, including drummer Jared Schmidt. When one of the members is excused from the spotlight, they all dance along as if they found a stem in their… Zoloft prescription. (See what I did there?) - 303 Magazine
