Juno What?! Biography
Juno What?! is a shameless dance party based in the music mecca of Denver, CO. This powerhouse quartet delivers a deeply satisfying mix of live electro-funk and high-energy disco booty jams. The band formed in 2008 as an outlet for Joey Porter’s (The Motet) organic-meets-electronic dance compositions and since has released three independent albums (Late Night, Shameless, and Late Night Live). Touring regularly since 2009, Juno What?! has shared the stage with funk luminaries such as Ohio Players and Bernie Worrell, and most of the top of the crop of contemporary groove masters. Juno What?! audiences are treated to a band that appreciates both the classic pedigree of vintage vinyl dance cuts as well as futuristic sternum-bumping anthems. The band consists of Joey Porter (keyboards, talkbox), fellow Motet-eer Garrett Sayers (bass, synth bass), Denver guitarist at large Dan Schwindt and first call drummer Tyrone Hendrix. This core group is often augmented by special guests taken from the best of the gigging groups on the scene (including founding member Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic). These musicians have gathered their collective talents to focus on this mission of making the world a better place… to dance!
