Cool Shooz has been entertaining Colorado crowds for almost twenty years, since their beginnings as The Fabulous Fairlanes. Their a cappella rock and roll has twice won them the Denver Regional Harmony Sweepstakes, and they have opened for acts as diverse as Marvin Hamlisch and Firefall. With the addition of seasoned performers Juli Redson-Smith and Doug Tisdale, the group is exploring new avenues of vocal expression, and pushing the traditional boundaries of the genre.
