CP S12 EP19 2018

One of the most popular hits in classic rock history, Dream On by Aerosmith, came out three years before some disc jockey decided to play it on the radio – and the rest, as they say, is history.

I’m not saying the same thing is happening this week, but I want to draw your attention to two (D) tracks in this week’s show that came out a year ago and to this point never made it to the show – one from the Motet, and one from a “new” band out of Colorado Springs – Audible.  Let me know what you think of them in this week’s MMMM.

Another (D) track this week is from Andreas Devalera who I shared a stage with several months ago – and whose new release is the work, not of an 18 year old HS grad, but of someone many years older with greater life experiences and time spent on his multiple instruments.

Already proficient on 10 instruments, Andreas is one of those kids voted on as most likely to succeed – and evidenced by such a stunning debut, I’m inclined to agree.  Sorry I don’t have an embed for the song I played.  His cd release show was last night in Denver – so it may take a little while longer before the album is uploaded to your favorite new music streaming site.

Colorado Symphony, now operating in the black, catches break on rent for city-owned Boettcher Concert Hall. According to the article in the Denver Post, the Colorado Symphony ended the year in the black for the first time since a 2011 internal review declared it was on the brink of disaster.  As a result, the Denver City Council voted to provide the symphony savings of $166k a year in the way of free office space and cheaper rent to use Boettcher Concert Hall.  Follow the link for more info.

Gasoline Lollipops will soon have a new sound and a new drummer.  Adam Perry, who was also once the drummer for the Yawpers as they were emerging in the scene, has announced he’s leaving the band to put more efforts into his job at a Boulder law firm, writing for Westword, and his now 8 year old daughter.  Band leader Clay Rose says the sound of the band will morp into more spacey and psychedelic themes.  The story was first reported in the Boulder Beat.

Last week I reported on the death of Denver Joe.  In the meantime, long time friend and Denver musician Marty Jones wrote a terrific tribute to Joe for Westword.

CS S12 EP 17 2018

This was a bittersweet weekend.  After reporting in my show this week that long time Denver Cap-Hill icon Denver Joe passed away, I attended a memorial at 3 Kings Tavern on Saturday.

It was very nice to see some old friends, many of whom I haven’t seen in a decade – since the Cricket on the Hill closed in 2008.  Among those in attendance was Bob Rupp, former owner of Rupp’s Drums, and still a major supporter of the scene locally.

According to Bob and his wife, he’s been dealing with stage four cancer the past couple of years, that originated as a form of brain cancer, and metastasized into other parts of his body.  Fortunately, Bob has been taking a highly targeted medication that has seemingly stopped the cancer in its tracks.  Anyone who’s known Bob over the years knows of his insanely positive outlook on life.  It was in full display on Saturday.

House concerts.  Ever gone to one?  For those of us into singer-songwriters, or non-amplified acoustic based music, house concerts provide an option from more established types of venues that often are too noisy, program start times too late, and provide little in comfort.

Unfortunately, since house concerts are invitation based events you won’t find a calendar that promotes them.  I’ve been or participated in two this season so far – both with about 25-30 audience members.  Highly enjoyable.

Speaking of non-amplified acoustic music – I had breakfast at the Bacon Social House on W. 44th in Denver this weekend, and noticed they’re seeking approval to include that on their premises.  Acoustic musicians may want to keep an eye on that as it develops.

FOCOMX has come and gone for another year.  In the ten years I’ve been going it’s usually as one of the production crew – running sound and stage in one of the rooms.  Not this year.  This year I was performing – in Denver on Friday night and in my band’s third annual appearance at FOCOMX on Saturday night.

Incredibly summer like weather produced what looked like a record number of people out and about on Saturday evening.  Our first stop was to see Jeff Finlin at Avogadro’s .. and the 100 cap seated room was standing room only at 4PM.

I managed to catch sets or parts of from Novalectric, J Shogren Shanghai’d from WY who I’ve wanted to see for many years, Last Call Romance and a couple of others before I turned into something other than a goat.

Our own set at Tony’s Rooftop was very well attended and received by the crowd.  Couldn’t ask for more.  Thanks and congratulations to the folks at FOCOMA (Fort Collins Musicians Assoc) for an incredible 10th Anniversary.

One incredibly sad bit of news to pass along this week is the passing of Denver Joe – a character on Capitol Hill for as long as I can remember – especially as the doorman at the infamous Cricket on the Hill.  Local musician Chris Rail Chamberlayne wrote some of the best tribute to Joe this weekend on his FB page.

WOW … I’m finding it hard to believe that we’re almost 1/3 of the way through the year already. It probably shouldn’t come as any surprise that the top two 2018 Colorado album releases being played statewide are

1.  Tearing At the Seams – Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats
2.  Something Higher! – Leftover Salmon

I’ve said this before, and it’s worth repeating: a dj can’t play and a writer can’t write about what they don’t have.  I notice there are a ton of titles that do not make their way to radio stations and “print” publications around the region.

So as far as that goes it’s actually been a rather quiet week. Next weekend will likely be a different story.

Friday and Saturday is the 10th Annual FOCOMX.  300 acts in some 30 venues … it marks the UNOFFICIAL start of the festival season every year.  If you’ve never been I encourage it. My band, GOATZ!, will be appearing at Tony’s Rooftop on Saturday at 7PM.

A NEW STATION is coming on board beginning MAY 1 … KAFM Grand Junction will air the show on the following schedule:

HOUR 1 = Saturday night at midnight + 11AM Tues morning
HOUR 2 = Sunday night at midnight + 11AM Friday morning.

CP S12 EP14 2018

For the past twenty plus years my music interests, as a fan/consumer and an industry guy, has been focused on non-theatrical forms of presentation.

Over the past few months, however, my girlfriend – who enjoys musicals – has taken me to the Bug Theater to see presentations of musicals of Evil Dead, Disaster, and Reefer Madness presented by the Equinox Theater Company.  Both Evil Dead and Reefer Madness are award winning and critically praised presentations.

If you haven’t attended a good – or any –  little theater presentation recently, I highly encourage you to see the current presentation of Reefer Madness the musical .. it may not be pop, rock, country, soul or blues – but it sure is one hellova good time in one of Denver’s treasured theaters.

Being a musician fronting my own band, I know how hard it is to get three voices in sync.  Watching the ensemble crew Saturday night, I was amazed at just how much work must have gone into making sure they sang well together – and danced together on such a small stage as that at the Bug.

The house band, which stays behind the scenes, is among the best I’ve heard in the region regardless of style.  The only thing I found lacking was the audio engineer, who failed on several occasions to bring up the mic level on the “narrator,” a main character in the play.  There were also other instances where dialogue was muddied or muffled.  But sitting in row three center stage I was able to make out most of what was being said – most of the time.

Overall – if you want to break away from seeing a band perform at one of the many fine music venues, head to the Bug for the current Reefer Madness the Musical presentation.  It’s been one of my favorite music experiences in 2018.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

I’ve known Andy Sydow as a friend and consulting client since he graduated from college about six years ago now.  Along the way, I’ve been able to enjoy a young artist mature into his own voice.  Reasons For Departure is his latest release.  This is the title track.

AEG PRESENTS ANNOUNCES THE MISSION BALLROOM

DENVER, CO (April 9, 2018) – AEG Presents Rocky Mountains, one of the world’s leading producers and promoters of live entertainment, announced today The Mission Ballroom, a scalable, state-of-the art concert venue scheduled to open in summer 2019. The 60,000 square-foot ballroom will anchor North Wynkoop, a new 14-acre mixed use project by Denver-developers Westfield Company, located at the north-end of the RiNo neighborhood between 40th and 43rd Streets along Brighton Blvd.

Chuck Morris, CEO of AEG Presents Rocky Mountains, said of the new venue, “Our entire AEG Presents Rocky Mountain team spent the last 11 years searching for the perfect location and the right design to build one of the finest venues this town has ever seen. With features including a moving stage that provides The Mission flexible capacity from 2200 to 3950 guests, unrivaled sight lines and state-of-the-art sound and lights, The Mission will bring Colorado the most cutting-edge concert experience in the world.”

AEG Presents Rocky Mountains, the leading promoter in Denver, CO who operate the Bluebird Theater, Gothic Theatre, Ogden Theatre, 1STBANK Center and Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre, as well as book the majority of the shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, bring decades of experience to the development and design of The Mission Ballroom. The Mission features tiered rows that provide unobscured views at every level, sight lines from every vantage point and a large dance floor that allows standing or seating. Full-service bars conveniently placed around the venue maximize flow, efficiency and patron experience.

“We blended the ballroom experience on the floor with a tiered-riser configuration similar to Red Rocks. Beyond offering incredible sight lines, this design creates the finest sonic experience that Colorado concertgoers expect and deserve,” said Don Strasburg, co-president for AEG Presents Rocky Mountains.

AEG Presents Rocky Mountains sought the perfect location for this unique venue and ultimately ended up partnering with Westfield Company on its North Wynkoop development in Denver’s transformative RiNo neighborhood and arts district. Encompassing three city blocks from 40th to 43rd streets along Brighton Boulevard, North Wynkoop is a five-minute walk to the 38th and Blake A Line Station (one train stop to Union Station and 30 minutes to Denver International Airport) and just minutes from the intersection of Denver’s largest vehicular arteries of I-25 and I-70.

“We’re so excited with the vision that Westfield Company has for North Wynkoop. The Brighton Boulevard corridor and the entire River North area is exploding with vibrancy. This location is a perfect fit for The Mission Ballroom with parking, easy access to light rail, and only a stone’s throw from downtown, it is the right place for us to be.” said, Brent Fedrizzi, co-president and COO of AEG Presents Rocky Mountains.

Westfield and its development team; which includes leasing agents Newmark Grubb Knight Frank and Legend Partners; architect Works Progress Architecture; general contractor M.A. Mortenson; and financing provided by FirstBank, Guaranty Bank and Trust and Citywide Banks; will transform North Wynkoop into an arts and entertainment hub attracting creatives across all industries. In addition to The Mission Ballroom, a 90,000 square foot office and retail building is under construction as well as the renovation of 80,000 square feet of 1950’s-vintage warehouse buildings transforming them into synergistic restaurants, bars and retail. Future phases of North Wynkoop include market rate and affordable housing, a hotel, as well as the potential for an additional one million square feet of residential and commercial uses.

“We are fortunate to have the opportunity of working with AEG Presents on this innovative concept,” said Kevin McClintock, senior partner for Westfield. “The talents and experience of their team are unparalleled, and their dedication to the highest-quality musical experience aligns with our own long-term vision for North Wynkoop. The Mission Ballroom is the ideal anchor and will serve as the heartbeat for our project.”

The Mission Ballroom is not only a premiere concert facility, but also serves as a unique special event space for corporate meetings and other functions, award shows, galas, weddings, receptions, launch parties, trade shows, private events, and more.
In addition to its incredible access to rail, parking options for the site will include an underground garage as well as nearby parking options. The Mission Ballroom will also offer a shared-ride pick-up and drop-off area and an abundance of bike parking.
