This is a very unique project with three very different individuals from very different music backgrounds. They have come together and formed a unique new band called the REALLYZ. John Elliot the drummer came from an all heavy metal background, Damien Pipes the bass player derived from all roots reggae grooves, and Dusty Giles from punk funk and acoustic songwriting. They stumbled upon each other’s paths in September 2014.
In June 2015, The Reallyz began performing in Denver and have had success with their shows in response to fans and venues. They have also opened for two touring acts from New York and Boston. On July 21 2015, The Reallyz released their first EP in about 30 online stores including itunes, spotify, deezer, muve music, amazon, google play and more. Goals in the next year include performing and returning to well known venues in Denver, continuing to engage their new and growing fanbase.
To provide Denver and surrounding areas with memorable experiences and create that “Something to talk about” songwriting, stage presence, and a true fan engagement. The Reallyz love their support and show it.
Q & A “What makes you different from other bands?” We are unique, the 3 of us have special talents that we bring to the table, we love songwriting and “painting the picture” with our songs, we try to meet and greet everyone who supports us, we stay and watch the other bands, we want the venue to both have fun and make money, we want to grow in this experience and are very thankful for it.
“What do people remember from your performance?” We hope that they remember that the music and performance was good, obviously. But we also hope that the singing is conveyed well and the lyrics are understandable because most of them are about important issues that all of us deal with on a daily basis, such as relationships, love, life, and good times.
“What do hope to do with the rest of this year and into 2016?” Perform and write as much as we can and love those who are there to share it with us!
