Master of Ceremonies


Laura Lee- “My name is Laura Lee and I create entertainment. I am a host, comedian, commercial/television/film actor, producer and on camera personality.”

Laura Lee, Denver’s up and coming female comedian, has been blazing a trail for today’s women with her clever writing and fearless attitude. The newly divorced mother of three humorously shares the adventures of conquering the world as a single mom, raising three boys, and the joys of life after divorce.

Laura’s upbeat performances also draw from her experiences as a corporate marketing executive and rediscovering herself by traveling to Europe for the Olympics, dating, and her significant accomplishments as an athlete. Laura has competed as a runner, triathlete, paddle boarder, snowshoer and mountain biker. www.lauraleetalent.com

8:15 –The Blues DoGs


The Blues DoGs show band was started over 15 years ago. As our music was heard , our popularity grew we were called on to do larger and larger events . These new challenges demanded that we add different genres and songs to our set lists so we could help make these larger and larger events successful.

We were then asked to open a major blues festival and at the same time to open for the sensational Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Our unique horn sound, tight vocal harmonies , unbelievably talented crew of solo artists on guitar, harmonica , keyboard coupled with two powerful lead singers will hold you spell bound at times and always make you want to dance.

The Blues Dogs are made up of:

    • Kent Obermann – lead vocals
    • Mehgan Castor – vocals
    • Kyle Moyer – guitar
    • Ryan Millard – guitar
    • Scott Davis – keyboards
    • Chris Kay – bass
    • Dean Vendyl – bass, vocals
    • Paul Hoffman – drums
    • Greg Obermann – harmonica, vocals

Horn Dogs:

    • Gary Brunner – alto, tenor, baritone sax
    • Matt Meuli – trumpet
    • Tim Clarke – trombone

Blues Puppy:

  • Ryne Obermann – harmonica

Of course we don’t always play with all the dogs. Depending on the set and the venue, we can play an acoustic set “The Dogs Unplugged” or bring a high energy set with the whole dog pound!

We love what we do!
