      Concert Description:

      The Patti Fiasco
      Jet-fueled by powerhouse front woman Alysia Kraft, The Patti Fiasco rides the edge of emotional extreme, delivering a brash yet fiercely soulful brand of rock and roll with a heavy dose of rockabilly, blues, and ballad. At times raw and volatile, and at others, sweet and lilting, the band fuses a hard-rock swagger with the two-step of its Wyoming roots. It’s the attitude of Joan Jett with a Steve Earle twang, the soul and slide of Bonnie Raitt, Black-Keys-style dirty blues-rock, and the lyric edginess of Shovels and Rope.
      In 2017, the band won a nationwide contest sponsored by Live Nation and Bon Jovi’s management to open for the rock icon at The Pepsi Center before a sell-out crowd in March of 2018. Alysia Kraft’s unrelenting energy, inspired songwriting, and vocals “as pure and clean as they are powerful” (Westword) earned her The Colorado Sound 2023 Award for most Outstanding Live Performer. The dobro, handmade and electrified—literally—by band member and 2007 RockyGrass dobro competition winner Ansel Foxley, builds the band’s signature blend of rock, country, and Americana. Lead guitarist Dee Tyler’s riffs range from gritty and driving to pensive and melodic, and his backing vocals add warmth to Kraft’s pointed lyrics. In March of 2022, celebrating ten years together as a band, The Patti Fiasco performed with the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra at the Historic Lincoln Theatre.
      Conceived at a Wyoming open mic in 2009, The Patti Fiasco quickly earned wide critical acclaim, a devout fan base spanning the West and Midwest, and radio play across the nation. The band has shared the stage with legends Bon Jovi and Blondie, renowned acts Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, Justin Townes Earle, Great American Taxi, Cracker, Greensky Bluegrass, The Futurebirds, Born in the Flood, and Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real.
      Reinvigorated by line-up changes, a creative refresh provided by solo pursuits, and a “best yet” collection of new songs, The Patti Fiasco is set to release their first new music since 2016 beginning in Spring of 2024. Their 2016 release, “Saved By Rock and Roll” was SCENE MAGAZINE’S Album of the Year. Their 2013 release, “Small Town Lights,” has garnered multiple accolades, including Wyoming Public Radio’s Best Regional Album award, FoCoMA’s Best Album award, and high positioning on the Colorado charts. It finished in the top 10 most-played Colorado records of 2013. The single of the same name received national radio play and was featured in the film “Whensday.” “Nobody’s Girl,” from the band’s self-titled 2011 debut, was that year’s top-spun single in Colorado.
