Don’t miss the Fall Rock Fest in Colorado Springs with these two local bands - The Martini Shot and Soapdish!
THE MARTINI SHOT is a six-piece, horn-powered, Pop-Rock cover and original band based out of Southern Colorado. The Martini Shot has released four original projects with major influences of Barenaked Ladies, Reel Big Fish, Foo Fighters, 311, and many others. The band's covers are high energy pop tunes in which they add horns to give it the "Martini Shot flavor". Recognized as Southern Colorado's Hottest Band, The Martini Shot are staples at local festivals and event series. Some of the band's awards include the 2018 Best of Pueblo (Pueblo Chieftain), the 2015 Best of the Springs (Colorado Springs Gazette), and the 2013 Best Cover Band (Indy Music Awards - Colorado Springs Independent). The Martini Shot has had the privilege to open for Eddie Money, Blue Öyster Cult, Foghat, Firefall, Pure Prairie League and Great White. The band was established in 2000 with a majority of the members consisting of current or former local music teachers. The name, "Martini Shot," refers to the Hollywood slang term for the last shoot of the day.
SOAPDISH delivers an exciting show of nonstop, high energy dance music by melding the sounds of power pop and rock music spanning the 80s to today. Singer, Kristina Marshall’s interactive performances directly connect the crowd with the band. The result is a frenzy of fun, good energy, and nonstop dancing!
From their humble beginnings in 2007, SOAPDISH started as a session band waiting for the fictitious bass player, Nick Soapdish, to arrive in the studio. After patiently waiting, to no avail, the decision was made to become the area’s premier live band. The lineup consists of Kristina Marshall (vocals), James Tagawa (guitar), Eel Anderson (bass/vocals), and Erik Schroeder (drums/vocals). Playing together for a number of years has helped SOAPDISH refine their formula of putting fun first in a performance. Can’t wait to see you at a show!
