Don’t miss us early in the evening this Saturday to support Teller Elementary! Conceived in 2004 by music-loving Teller parents, the event has grown into this east Denver elementary school’s biggest fundraiser. But this event is not your typical school fundraiser. Don’t expect kid music. This show is going to ROCK! And while, yes, kids are welcome – Tellerpalooza shows what makes Teller special. A community that enjoys a great time, great music and each other. Tickets are still available! See you there!

Hollaback Girl

This is a blast from the past, but did you ever see Pete Wynn’s (of The Heyday) video from New Year’s Eve 2011? We entered the room with a marching band and covered Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl. It’s a great video of a great night!

Leave It At The Door

Huge thanks to all the friends who joined Bop Skizzum on stage for Andy Rok’s birthday! Here is Jon Shockness from Air Dubai, SF1 and Mic Jones with the crew for “Leave It At The Door.” AWESOME!

We’re Still *ON* For Chiddy Bang

Posted in Blog, Local Music, Shows by BopSkizzum

With the help of our friends, the High Tops and SF1, and the blessing of Julie, our singer holed up in the hospital… we are going to play this Saturday night with the awesome Chiddy Bang. It won’t be the same Skizzum you are used to, but we’ll definitely give you a show to remember. Andy Rok will take over the vocals (like Bop Skizzum circa 2005) and MCs will help make Skizzum rock the house. Funk and Hip Hip go together like peanut butter and jelly, RIGHT? Let’s DO this! Hot 107.1 Presents: Chiddy Bang Bop Skizzum Sat, March 17, 2012 Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 9:00 pm
