Rateliff grew up in rural Missouri and began playing the drums at age 7. At 18, he moved to Denver, Colo., for missionary work. In 2007, he released his first record. From there, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats slowly grew and eventually appeared on tour with The Lumineers in 2013. The band is based in Denver, and its music is described as folk, Americana and vintage rhythm blues.

Popular along the Front Range, the band has sold out concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo., and has a loyal following. The group is famous for its song “S.O.B.,” which is described as the “anthem of a blue-collar kid from the heartland.” In live performance, Rateliff and his band have been known to mash together “S.O.B.” and the group’s “The Shape I’m In” as the double-barreled climax of their sets.

Dragondeer is a psych-blues band, also from Denver. The band has shared the stage with Shakey Graves, Futurebirds, The Entrance Band and many more artists. Dragondeer has performed throughout the U.S. and abroad.

“Dragondeer delves into some swampy blues and reverb-drenched psych folk,” Westword says.
