The signature cocktail from Locke + Co distilling set to a rockin’ playlist from the Denver Rock N’ Roll Revival. Enjoy The Locke Cocktail and hit play.

Denver Rock N’ Roll Revival

Denver Rock N’ Roll Revival started doin’ their thing in 2018, when husband and wife team Jennifer Sanchez and Adam Hester joined their record collections together to rock the socks off of the Denver scene. Both of them are longtime Mile High music people- Jenny cofounded and ran Zombie Rock Productions, bringing touring bands through town and booking local bands for support, and Adam DJ’d raves back in the 90s and played in Get Three Coffins Ready and the Bloody Fives as well as selecting tunes with Denver Vintage Reggae Society and Groove Diggers Soul Club. And both have been ravenously collecting vinyl for twenty plus years.

When you go to a Rock N’ Roll Revival night plan on hearing a well curated mix of rockin’ genres ranging from wild 50s r’n’b and rockabilly to classic 60s surf and garage rock to first wave punk and retro revival sounds from the last couple decades. It’s an all-vinyl rockin’ soul dance party filled with some of your favorites and some stuff you’ve probably never heard before.
