Denver Band to Know: Trout Steak Revival
Note: Dirt Road Travels is a series of digital city guides focused on photos and stories. This is from our guide for Denver, CO.
“We all started out as friends and became a band together. We played our first shows for free beer. It was fun, but we weren’t any good. We were just learning our instruments together. We gave ourselves a lot of room to make mistakes. Playing music on the weekends was a big source of joy for everyone. And now, I get to travel the country with my best friends. Choosing to do something that you really love — that’s sustaining beyond money or immediate success — is big. I still feel excited about this, and am in love with it. I want the people who come to our shows to feel that too.” — Travis McNamara, Banjo

Denver Must: The Buck Snort Saloon is an old gutted cabin with music and food in Sphinx Park. It’s one of my favorite places in all of Colorado.
