Colorado’s Amoramora brings their funky brand of bluegrass-fusion to Kenny’s with Peoria’s own pickin’ brother, the Wes Duffy Trio!
Featuring an upbeat blend of Funk, Bluegrass, African Highlife and Jazz Fusion, these Rocky Mountain Boys harken back to the early days of the jam-rock scene that just oozed positivity which nurtured bands like Blind Melon, String Cheese Incident, and Strangefolk. Fueled by high-energy improvisation, the undeniable joy this quartet shares onstage and offstage is reflected by their devout and growing fanbase, the Amorons. Based out of Boulder, CO, the band has a commitment to consistently changing setlists, expanding their already extensive catalog of original material, and stirring the musical gumbo with their own ‘ Cosmic Mountain Funk’. Along with the deep instrumental blend of guitar, keyboard, trumpet, EWI, bass & drums, all four members are also vocalists.

About Wes Duffy Trio:
Wes Duffy Trio is a high energy newgrass trio based out of Peoria, Illinois. The group formed when Wes Duffy invited Tim Brickner and Daniel Watkins to accompany him for a performance on WTVP’s State & Water. Encouraged by the response, they have been playing ever since. Drawing from various musical influences, they utilize mandolin, bass, and guitar to create a fresh progressive sound.
