ShowDown Town: Babaux and the Peacemakers
Event date: This event has already passed.
Eagle Town Park
Babaux & the Peacemakers is a Colorado-based roots-rock quartet led by singer-songwriter and dobro player Cristian Basso, aka Babaux. Basso wrote the song material for their debut release “Lucky 13,” which will drop in July ahead of their SDT performance. The title of the record reflects the number of albums Babaux has written and produced to date. Basso has played alongside of musical greats such as Bo Diddley, Leo Nocentelli (The Meters), Papa Mali, Particle and Eric Lindell. The Peacemakers are made up of three multi-talented songwriters, producers, engineers and musicians and include Eric Martinez on guitar, as well as Alana and Niek Velvis on drums and bass respectively. Each Peacemaker is credited for co-producing their new recording, “Lucky 13.”
These blues-roots driven songs are inspired by a time experienced in Basso’s childhood years. He grew up being surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where his mother was a music promoter.
“It’s been amazing to work with the Peacemakers and the Peacemaker Family who all continue to inspire with their multi-talented ways,” says Basso. “The chemistry amongst the band was immediate and positive. It was what drove us in the studio and it made for a mutually refreshing and rejuvenating musical effort.”
