Patrick McDevitt – Bass
Alejandro Castaño – Drums
+ Various Special Guests
Led by Patrick McDevitt and Alejandro Castaño alongside a rotating cast of Denver’s most stellar young musicians, FreeBear delivers airtight grooves that exude a cool, irresistible funk. It’s jazz, funk, reggae, salsa and more all rolled into a good old-fashioned dance party.
FreeBear was formed in 2010 by McDevitt and Castaño while they were both music students at CU Boulder. Playing every Thursday night for nearly 2 years at The Sink, they quickly honed the unique FreeBear sound. Since then, McDevitt and Castaño have quickly become some of the top-call rhythm section players in Colorado. With their signature grooves and inimitable pocket they have backed artists including Gabriel Mervine, Peter Sommer, Dan Schwindt, Annie Booth, Josh Quinlan’s Funky Fresh Trio, Mike Dillon of Primus, and Joe Tatton of The New Mastersounds.
