“Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats practically explodes with deep, primal and ecstatic soulfulness.” Over the years Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats have created songs that not only speak to the audience, but tell the story about the journey and connection to Nathaniel.
“Rateliff, who’s 36, traveled a long road to get to this point. He left school after his dad passed away at the end of 7th grade, left his home in the small town of Herman, Missouri, where his future would’ve likely involved endless shifts in a nearby plastic factory; and work as a janitor for a high school. Not long afterward, he followed some local missionaries to Denver, thereby escaping what he describes as “the Midwestern lifestyle of working and growing up too fast.”
Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats are famous for their song “S.O.B.” This song is the “anthem of a blue-collar kid from the heartland.” “In live performance, Rateliff and the Sweats have been known to mash together ‘S.O.B’ and the Band’s ‘The Shape I’m In’ as the double-barreled climax of their sets.”
Dragondeer “is a psych-blues band from Denver, Colorado who’s singular, reverb drenched take on old school blues and soul coupled with inspired improvisation has the band making fans in roots circles as well as indie clubs across Colorado and beyond.” (Bio)
