Cure for the Common rocks the sun to sleep in front of a crowd of thousands at Bobcat Fest on Main 2013 - Bozeman, Montana.

“Cure for the Common lives up to its name. Armed with an arsenal of original funk rock tunes, the band is known for packing houses full of eager dancers ready to follow them into the morning. For those that have caught a show (or a dozen) in the past year, there is no question as to why the band has quickly become one of the most sought-after groups in Bozeman. The tunes are fun, the vibe is fresh and the band is overflowing with talented musicians.”

"The band’s dedication to working hard and continuously writing high-caliber music has pushed them to the top of the stack amongst Montana’s touring music scene. Their sound has evolved since the band’s inception, now featuring a progressive funk sound that underpins their irresistible fusion of genres. Unstoppable rock’n’roll energy seamlessly integrates with a jazz musicality that makes their raucous dance party an equally engaging listening experience."

- Rachel Hergett - Editor, "The Get Out" Entertainment Section - Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Kitchen Dwellers formed three years ago below the Bridger Mountains, accompanied by the sizzle of afternoon breakfast and the warmth of Irish coffee brewing in the kitchen. What began as a trio, Shawn Swain, Joe Funk, and Kyle Shelstad began writing music and playing traditionals searching for originality and occasionally, other life forms. Torrin Daniels was quickly added on Banjo and the band began playing shows around Bozeman, Montana. They added Jesse Bulter on fiddle just in time to hit the road for Colorado and complete their sound. The Kitchen Dwellers have shared the stage with high profile artists like Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, the Deadly Gentlemen, Head for the Hills, Town Mountain, Pete Kartsounes, and WhiteWater Ramble.

The band has played many high profile venues in the west such as The Bluebird Theater, The Mishawaka Amphitheater, The Oriental Theater, and The Emerson Theater. They continue to master their sound, create original work, and foster their live performances.
