Some seriously funky groups come in Five’s The Jackson 5, The MC 5, Jurassic 5… and of course Fort Knox Five. While Fort Knox Five compose music like a band in the studio with live instrumentation blended into electronic music, they are renowned for their exciting and eclectic DJ performances. Founding members Steve Raskin and Jon Horvath established a unique live DJ set using mashedup acapellas and effects woven into original tracks, exclusive mixes and dance floor destroyers. These sets have proven to be irresistible to club goers worldwide, rocking parties with infectious grooves that effortlessly move from funk, reggae & glitchhop to prime time 4/4 beats & breaks. With the untimely passing of Jon H, Steve Raskin has taken over as the principle DJ for the group and now leads the charge of the Fort Knox brigade on the road into the funky future. Fort Knox Five has toured and performed for nearly two decades.

Posh Josh Bio: Originally hailing from New York City coming up out of the Disco and Funk age, with Jazz musician parents and then seeing the advent of electronic music and Hip Hop … It is no wonder why Josh gravitated towards HOUSE!  
Playing shows with DJ Dan, Rob Garza, Fort Knox5, Diva Danielle to name a few.

Codestar Bio: Wielding a style that blends organic instrumentation and vocals with deep bassy dance beats, expansive effects, loops, samples, and turntablism, CodeStar’s sets and productions are inspired by an invigorating Love for Life! He brings a live and unique mix to every occasion, maintaining continuity, while refusing to be stylistically confined. CodeStar is truly a reflection of our modern era’s rainbow of diversity, with a wide range of influences including world, electronic, reggae, funk, house, tribal, bass music, and more, combining it all into a style he has coined as “World Tribe Vibez”.

Blessed to live in Durango Colorado, immersed in an amazing community, he brings positive vibes to every event he is part of. CodeStar is a conduit for bringing magic into the moment, weaving music into motion, expression into exhaltation, and inspiration into celebration!
