Based out of Denver, Colorado, Filthy Children first hit the stage together in Nov, 2003. Since then, they have been laying it down all over town, landing regular gigs at nearly all of Colorado’s most respected venues and festivals including: Boulder’s The Fox, Aspen’s Belly Up, Steamboat’s Ghost Ranch Saloon, Denver’s Cervantes, Bluebird and Gothic Theaters, Ft. Collins’ The Aggie Theater, South Park Music Festival, Copper Mountain’s Ride for the Cure, LODO Music Festival, The People’s Fair, as well as a headlining performance at Summerfest in Milwaukee two years in a row.
This funk/jazz/rock septet serves up a funkinetic frenzy of fresh, original, mind moving music; reminiscent of such groove giants as Soulive, Greyboy Allstars, John Scofield, and Deep Banana Blackout. Filthy Children deliver action packed funk that’s sure to be “a big fat kick in the groove” (Colorado Daily).
Their debut EP, Knocked Up, “a force to be reckoned with” according to CDBaby, has been played on over 200 radio stations nationwide and has been chosen to be on multiple reality shows for MTV.
Filthy Children were also in the “On the Rise” section in the September/October 2006 issue of Relix magazine. Additionally, they were named best funk band in Denver’s premier magazine 5280 for 2007 and nominated in Colorado's favorite alternative newspaper, Westword's, "Best Of" in the funk category in 2008 & 2009.
Fate has brought this group of filthy, misfit all-stars together. Their large and rapidly growing fan base is a testament to their grand performances and mass appeal.
