The Menagerie, whose sound is described as "Composite Rock-N-Roll", kicks off the 2004 April Fools Tour Saturday, April 3rd at the Flying Saucer in Nashville, TN.

The Menagerie
"In a wash with same old, same old 'jambands,' The Menagerie stands tall above the rest. They're one of the best bands to come out of Boulder in years. A great blend of excellent musicianship and sublime energy."
-Brian F. Johnson - Marquee Magazine

The Menagerie is definitely a band to see live! Their unique style is adding a new face to the world of rock 'n' roll. The Menagerie brings to the stage a wide array of lyrically powerful songs that include long extended jams, which are composed of electronic trance grooves to hypnotize the mind, blended with strong, funky jazz-influenced tracks to keep the body moving.

This will be The Menagerie's third tour to the Southeastern region. The band has developed quite a large following in a very short period of time in that area. This jaunt to the Southeast will involve seven cities in eight shows to make for a short but sweet two-week tour.

"The Menagerie rocks hard and parties to an equal degree." - Erin Enders - CU Campus Press

But it doesn't stop there! The Menagerie turns up the heat on April 10th in Memphis, TN by linking up with one of the hottest hip-hop act on the scene, Free Sol. An eclectic band that masterfully blends hip-hop with elements of rock, soul, funk, and jazz, Free Sol is the essence of music and artistic expression. The long-awaited pairing of these two dynamic acts should prove to be an interesting blend, to say the least. More appropriately stated, this will undoubtedly be a show that allows for music fans of all kinds to groove 'til their hearts are content!

The April 10th performance winds down The Menagerie's two-week tour through the Southeastern region. The band will then travel to St. Louis, Missouri to close what is known as, the 2004 April Fools Tour at Cicero's on Monday, April 12th, with the band Madahoochi.
