About The Guestlist
The Guestlist is a six-piece rock and roll band hailing from Denver, CO. The Guestlist has been a prominent figure in the Mile High music scene since the release of “No More Nostalgia” in 2015. Coming off a packed CD release show at the Oriental Theater in Denver, the band embarked on a tour through the West coast, with stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle. The Guestlist have performed with the likes of Paper Bird, Fantastic Negrito, and Black Pistol Fire. The band has been playing the local Denver circuit including shows at the Hi-Dive, Larimer Lounge, and yearly appearances at the Underground Music Showcase. The Guestlist have performed on CPR Open Air and Dead Canary Studio.
With 2017 comes the recording of a new album, where The Guestlist will bring their blues and soul to The Mammoth Cave where they will record with Mark Anderson (Paper Bird). With this new album, the band looks forward to sharing the music on a national scale as they prepare to embark on a vigorous tour schedule. As put by A.H. Goldstein of Westword Magazine, “.. (The Guestlist) has the meditative feel of a Rocky Mountain sunset. Chalk it up to the slow tempos, the haunting rounds of slide guitar or the bluesy lyrical plaints — whatever the source, the record offers a strong sense of high altitudes, late-night campfires and small-town calm.”

The majority of Mama Magnolia met in music school and played in a variety of musical settings – from big bands to Indian dance class. Then singer, Megan Letts, brought forth the proposition of going steady with this stellar group of humans and musicians. “There was something magical about when the six of us plugged in and played for the first time. No. It was just magic,” recalls Megan. And they took that magic and ran!
