SUPERBLUME is a funky, booty-shanking jam band blossoming in Santa Cruz, California. With desire to inspire a world where everybody is free to be themselves, Superblume creates a live atmosphere of love, togetherness, and self-expression.
Drawing inspiration from jam band giants and blues legends, Superblume's music weaves a wide range of improvised soundscapes through funky original compositions. Freely flowing from blissful rock n' roll to dark psychedelia to disco-funk and all spaces in between, Superblume aims to explore uncharted musical territory with every live performance.
"We want to take this crazy world and shake everyone into the moment together" says frontman Nate Smith. "One of the most beautiful experiences is when humans gather together to celebrate life and love and each other. The fear and the barriers and attachments that keep us separated fade away, and whats left is a magical moment of human connection. We want to create these moments every time we get on stage."


Born from the rich culture of the Colorado mountains, The Runaway Grooms are bringing a refreshing take on contemporary jam band music. With pocket grooves, syncopated rhythms, and expansive tones, the band captures elements of funk and psychedelic rock while simultaneously celebrating traditional songwriting roots of Americana music. Dueling guitar solos, 3-part harmonies, and a screaming lap steel guitar, combine to create a unique soundscape that takes listeners through an experiential musical journey.

The Colorado based band formed when frontman, Adam Tobin, met guitarist, Zac Cialek, at employee housing for a ski resort. The two were joined by drummer and long time friend, Justin Bissett, shortly after and formed the original lineup of the band. Bassist/vocalist, Zach Gilliam, and keyboardist, Cody Scott, joined the band in November 2019. The addition of the new members helped catalyse the evolution of the band’s sound.

The band released their debut album ‘Tied to the Sun’ in March 2020 , The release was immediately followed by the global Coronavirus pandemic during which the band continued to develop and write music together. The newly written music contributed to the Groom’s sophomore album, Violet Lane, set to be released October 2021.
