10 Year Echo plays an eclectic mix of well-known rock favorites from the 70’s & 80’s as well as tried and true country tunes. They love getting the audience involved in singing, dancing, or clapping along. The diversity and familiarity of song selection is sure to please people of all ages! They are based right here out of Loveland, CO. They started out in 2018 as a duo, casually trying out open mic nights all around northern Colorado, but it blossomed into additional bandmates and performances in no time. They have entertained crowds at a wide variety of restaurants, breweries, fundraisers, festivals, special events, and parties and are always excited to be a part of seeing familiar fans as well as making and meeting new ones at every event!
Entertainment Provided by Mike Ippolito
Mike Ippolito is a guitarist, singer/songwriter, based in Fort Collins, CO. Through an array of influences; ranging from blues, rock, jazz, funk, jam, soul and folk; Mike has formulated a rhythmic, genre-blending, percussive-picking style that is all his own. Hailing from Upstate NY, Mike’s former jam-fusion project, Liquid Lounge Band, received a nomination at the 2015 Syracuse Area Music Awards for their LP “Ellipsis”. After that, Mike fled to the alluring landscape of Colorado where he began to hone in his solo-performance skills. Fusing the past with the present, he has taken the approach of his old project, and has added layered progressions and improvisational jams to his performance, enhancing his sound.
