Denver based, country-rock band with a touch of psychedelia. 5 & Dimers play Intrinzik for raucous night of quality country music! $10 Admission at the Door.
In a city known more for its pop imports and jam bands, Jeff Rady (pedal steel) and Dustin Devine (lead guitar and vocals) created 5 & Dimers on a whim, but for good reason: they wrote some good country songs and had no band to play them. Dive into the history of the Denver music scene and you’ll find a tradition of not only great country music but a long line of country players. From the late 60s all throughout the 80s country music was a featured genre up and down the Front Range: Honky Tonks ruled the roosts and a pedal steel player could find a gig 6 nights a week.
With history behind them and songs in hand, 5 & Dimers booked studio time at Macy Sound Studios, a Denver institution, and recorded 8 songs straight to tape in two days with a patchwork band scrounged from late night phone calls to secret experts and diamond-in-the-rough talent found in local dive bars. Born from a shoe string budget and limited time, the record is not only raw and authentic, but sounds like a throwback to how country records were made in the mid-1960s. 5 & Dimers is a celebration of that golden era mixing a blend of vintage country and old school rock-and-roll with just a hint of psychedelia.
