Bop Skizzum- I'm So Much Cooler Than You & Beauty Queen

Here are two videos from Denver's Bop Skizzum. Both songs can be found on their Beauty Queen EP.

Music has the power to get people dancing and Bop Skizzum likes to take full advantage of that.  Gathering inspiration from every corner of the record store, the band meshes their alternative pop rock vibe with groovy funk, rock, ska, and dance music, creating an invigorating blend of unique instrumentation and infectious vocals.

NYU trained soul singer Erin Jo Harris fronts Bop Skizzum as the lead vocalist.  Guitar & Back-up Vocals are handled by band co-founder Andy “Rok” Guerrero, formerly of the socio-political hip-hop rock band The Flobots.  Fellow co-founder and the band’s Music Director Serafin Sanchez (a CU Boulder graduate with a Master’s Degree in Jazz Music) provides one of the ‘3rd voices’ (in the form of brass) in Bop Skizzum with the Saxophone. This inspiring song writing trio is grounded by the incredible rhythm section of groove master Chris Harris on Bass and multiple award winning beat savant Tohbias Juniel on Drums. Rounding out the brass section are the two-man Trumpet power-punch of Joe Ferrone and John Lake.

The band has been compared to No Doubt, The Heavy, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and N.E.R.D.
