Where It All Started
Ground Zero began in March 2020 on a mission to promote all things rock/metal in Denver, CO and surrounding areas. A very short ten months later, Ground Zero went international. Still supporting, promoting and helping manage all things rock/metal, but on a much larger scale.
As we all know, living a life of music of any kind can be very hard these days. Venues, bars and restaurants are having a hard time even staying open through this pandemic. That's what we're here for.
Ground Zero strongly and safely promotes all rock/metal musicians, bands, bars/restaurants, concert venues and anything else related to the rock/metal community.
This vision started on a relatively small scale. Only promoting rock/metal interests in Denver and surrounding areas. It didn't take us long to figure out that there is a lot going on behind the scenes of the rock/metal community across the world.
Ground Zero Promotions wanted in on it all.
Promoting started with two of the amazing bands listed below. From there, we took off and started promoting for anyone and anything that has to do with the rock/metal community.
Over time of seeing all sides of the rock/metal community and having some fun with it all on social media, we came to realize that there are a lot of other people that could truly benefit from what the rock/metal community has going for them, if they knew about it. . .
- BANDS -
Here are some of the bands that we are currently working with.
We take everything that they create (pictures, music, music videos, etc.) and blast them all over the internet for the world to see. We also create our own or can edit ones already made.
Our goal is to get their (and your) names out there as much as possible.
Sin On Six was the very first band that we started promoting for. Anything from taking an insane amount of pictures and videos to helping design a massive 'SIN ON SIX' banner for their stage show, we've done it. These guys took a chance on us and we know how important the business side of all of this is. RJ, Pete, Randy and CJ are absolutely amazing to see live or even jam out to on ITunes or Spotify. They pack one hell of a punch and definitely make their presence known on stage.
Bound By Years and Ground Zero really came together during one of their shows at Herman's Hideaway. Not knowing who or what Ground Zero was at the time, we chatted it up with Shawn Gonzales and Chance Douglas for a long time after the show just to get more of a feel of where they came from. Some time later, our paths crossed again at Angelo's CD's & More off Broadway (right next to The Brutal Poodle, by the way) during the making of Sin On Six's video for their song 'Fading'. Chase, Johnny, Shawn, Chance and Dennis have really made a name for themselves within the community.
Purge The Heretics was brought to us by our very own beautiful model, Corina Marie. Ground Zero got something special when Corina came on board. Instead of getting one ambitious person, we got an entire ambitious band. Bringing an entirely new sound, these amazing individuals have created a new genre. We're proud and honored to have the creators of HellPop as a part of our ever growing family.
Slingfist is a band that has been in our sights for some time now. Donnie Craig introduced himself to us at a show at Herman's Hideaway a long while back before Ground Zero was ever even an idea. Fast forward through many shows and conversations along with some time spent with each other in their practice studio, Ground Zero Promotions, LLC is now proudly partnered with Slingfist.
Theocide is a progressive metal band out of Tuscon, AZ that heard about us from Johnny Thrash with Bound By Years. Steven Ford of Theocide hit us up on Facebook and had us check out some of their content on YouTube. Immediately we wanted them as part of the family. These guys have pushed hard and fast to get as much done in a short time as possible and have excelled in every way. They've updated their logo and recently went into the studio to record a few songs. Stay tuned for so much more from these guys.
Fist Fight had a big impact on the creator of Ground Zero. About six years ago, Fist Fight sponsored Shawn in his debut fight for Kickdown 120. They allowed him to enter the cage to their song "Break Something" and provided him with some gear to wear upon entry. Shawn unfortunately did not win that fight, but as we fast forward to today, Fist Fight and Ground Zero Promotions have become official partners. We here at GZP are proud and honored to call these guys family.
Mob For Bid has become one of the most intriguing heavy punk rock bands in all of Denver and are making all the right moves to get their names out there and noticed. Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to introduced Mob For Bid to the Ground Zero Promotions family. Enjoy some Colorado Groove Core!
WHEN WE SAID WE PROMOTE

This young woman is the poster child for perseverance. She has had one hell of a ride, but nothing stops her from pushing forward. She's beautiful, feisty and fun and we are honored to have her on our team! Taci is currently a model for Circus Of The Dark Modeling and is probably one of the most free spirits that we have the pleasure of knowing. Everything she does is for her family and in support of her beautiful little boy, Ryder, that has been diagnosed with Sanfilippo Syndrome. To support Ryder, check out

As an amazing friend and full supporter of what we are doing, Corina reached out to us and we immediately brought her on board. She has helped Ground Zero in so many ways since her start and we are forever grateful for all of her help. From promoting the company and our vision to helping design and bring to life, our ideas for show flyers and titles. This beautiful badass is so much more than alternative/goth/metal pretty face . . . You should hear her death growls!

Esme has been around us from the start of it all. From helping out in the merch booth at shows to simply sharing and supporting the company as a whole. With more than six years of experience in the modeling industry, we felt it not only right but necessary to make her a part of the GZP family. Esme aspires to show all women that success is within everyone's reach. She has built her career on the foundation of body inclusivity. She strives to show that no one needs to be the social standard of beauty in order to be beautiful.

- MEET THE TEAM -
- SHAWN LYONS -
In March of 2020, Shawn went through some times that really set Ground Zero Promotions into motion. Through those times and with the support that he received from others, the overall vision for Ground Zero was put into focus.
"We're a family here. From our team to those we promote, we support everyone as if we were blood. We're a bunch of like minded individuals all chasing the same dream. It's all a little easier when we do it together."
- SLAVIN -
From day one, Slavin has backed Ground Zero Promotions and it's direction in every way. He has been an incredible help with stage set up and tear down as well as coming up with ideas to help promote everyone in stronger, effective ways.
"I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself and have always had a passion for music. Ground Zero has allowed me to tap into both of those things."
