The Movers & Shakers
High Energy Rhythm n' Blues, Soul, Funk and old-school Rock n' Roll
The Movers and Shakers are a tight knit band of four music enthusiasts who bring everything they have to every single performance. Influences range from old school soul stars like Otis Redding and Sam and Dave to The Red Hot Chile Peppers, Talker, Joe Cocker and Jonny Lange.
The band is fronted by dynamic vocalist Andy Webber. Andy's energetic and soulful style is impressive. He is as comfortable with an Otis Redding ballad as he is with vintage 60's Steppenwolf or contemporary RnB from Blackstreet. Andy has the vocal chops to cover anything. Similarly guitarist Ryan Borthick's well rounded musical background has given him the skills to take on straight ahead blues and uptown funk. The son of drummer Kyle Borthick, Ryan is a fiery performer with a deep well of chops to draw from. Bass man Dane Vernon is a long time friend and musical associate of Ryan and Andy's. The three have worked together in several popular Denver based bands including Survivor and Secretly Supervised. Dane is actually gifted on multiple instruments and is a strong vocalist in his own right. Drummer/vocalist Kyle Borthick has been around the Denver music scene for many years. He has worked with such legendary Denver bands as J.D. and The Love Bandits , The Captains, Red Hot Blues Band and The Delta Sonics. He has also worked with national acts such as Bo Diddley, Dr John and Bob Margolin. This veteran blues/RnB drummer provides a solid backbone for this exciting group. Don't miss an opportunity to see this band. You won't be disappointed.
