PJ Moon and the Swappers is a band formed in Durango, CO in 2017. The Group was formed by bandleader PJ Moon, searching for a troupe of musicians who could help him realize his dream of making new modern rock and soul music with relevant lyrics on top of innovative rhythm and melodies. With a diverse team of jazz, blues, indie and funk players originally “swapping” out every few shows, the group developed into a core four peice of committed musicians who’ve taken their expression of soul from the west to the east, playing shows in Jackson Hole at the historic Silver Dollar Saloon, and in New York City at famed Times Square club, B.B. Kings.
In the summer of 2018 recording started on the group’s first album, “Memoirs of Living in a Car” at Scooter’s Place in Durango, CO. The record is a mix of genre bending rock and soul screaming rhythm & blues. All of the songs are original works most of which started as compostitions written by PJ Moon. With the input of the rest of the group, they eventually evolved into the complex yet catchy collection of songs that are now played at their live shows and streamed and downloaded across the world.
J-Calvin is a soul-funk band from Durango, Colorado. On New Year’s Eve 2017, the five members of J-Calvin brought their unique and varied musical backgrounds together for the first time. The result was a soul-abducting fusion of authentic lyrics, jazz-influenced harmonies, and Dilla-Inspired beats that’s been lighting up audiences ever since. The summer of 2018 brought their positive, high-energy show to Telluride Jazzfest and Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest, and on 20 October they celebrated the release of their debut album, Heart Glow, to a sold-out crowd headlining the iAM Music Fest in Durango.
