100 SHOTS is a seven piece band that sounds like The Clipse, Rage Against the Machine and Amy Winehouse are doing donuts in your parking lot. Heavy beats and guitar, sharp as knives rhymes, cuts, and hooks blessed by an actual angel. "100 Shots is a metaphor for a second chance. The hundredth shot. Also we like guns and booze." The main MC's/song writers are RH1N and T.G. who have been working together for ten years as the hip hop duo Gamer Life, putting out three albums independent all produced by RH1N and doing 100's of local gigs in Denver. But they wanted more. Three years ago they began putting together the band that is 100 SHOTS. Bass player Ben Martinez, lead guitarist Mike Spyder Moreno and Everett Dickensheet on drums were the first draft. Since adding DJ Diabolic and songstress Elizabeth Rose to the squad 100 SHOTS is complete. Everybody in the band has over ten years each of experience performing music. At their shows you get what you pay for.
Two years ago they recorded a promo CD to get the word out. This year they finished their first independent album "Red Rain" and dropped it on 8/15/15 at the Gothic Theatre in Denver, CO. Recorded at the legendary Colorado Sound Studios with engineer/co-producer Jesse O'brien.
"Red Rain" is where they shine, but the live show is where they do what they do best.
August 15th 2015 Saturday night at the Gothic theater a warm beautiful night people lining up at the door, the smell of anticipation but the shakes of impatience for 100 shots. Tonight is the release of Red Rain, 100 shots is complete with 7 members total including RH1N and TG leading with power house lyrics while adding Elizabeth Rose to captivate crowds with her powerful unique sound. The band on the other hand is on a whole other level, with Spyder shredding the guitar and Everett Dickensheet creating thunder in the clouds, while Ben Martinez on bass gives you base lines that feel like an earth quack and turning the tables is DJ Diabolic letting you know he means business, the band carries a lot energy and shows in there music.
