Smooth transition to fall

Band from Colorado never disappoints

Who couldn’t use a Smooth Money Gesture this close to winter when seasonal work shifts and food goes back to coming from cans?
That’s just what the Sun Valley Brewery in Hailey is offering, free of charge, at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25. And while listeners might need the cash to cover their beverage and snack of choice, this band’s infectious funk with ear-twitching space jams, face-melting solos and tight rhythmic changes will provide a nice night out.
The Diminico Brothers, Doug and Dan, are the backbone of this group from Colorado, which includes Pete Goldberg and Cody Wales.
According to their press, the quartet’s sound is rooted in rock ’n’ roll with elements of funk, bluegrass, metal and electronica, producing a jam-based, high-energy psychedelic creation all their own. With a variety of musical influences feeding the improvisational groove, and the majority of members contributing vocals and to songwriting, Smooth Money Gesture takes listeners on an adrenaline-rich celebratory journey that never runs out of fuel.
The band has just released its debut CD, “The Grand Scubian: Evolution.”
Sprinkling in the occasional  and unexpected covers or teases from bands such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead or Phish, SMG is constantly twisting and taking the jams to new heights.
Guy Erickson of Colorado Music Buzz recently remarked, “Smooth Money Gesture called their sound “uplifting and a reason to smile!”
