Denver band Bop Skizzum have announced that they will break following a farewell show at the Gothic Theatre on February 14. Bandleader Andy Rok announced the news via a heartfelt blog post on Bop Skizzum’s website.

Rok writes:

“I’m fully aware that many of you will be saddened to hear this news. Don’t be. We are so proud of what we have accomplished with this band, and we will all continue to make music. There are great things to come from every Bop Skizzum member, both present & past. I for one am very excited about this next chapter of my life, both as an artist and as a person, and I can’t wait to share what I create next with all of you.”

We’ll miss the energetic rock/soul/funk/hip-hop extravaganza that was the music of Bop Skizzum, but it bodes well that Rok and other members will continue to contribute to our vibrant and ever-growing local music scene.
