Colorado Playlist S10 EP25 July 2016

Right up front .. NOW is the time to get tickets to help me celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Colorado Playlist (formerly The Colorado Sound) happening Aug 7 at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre.  My friend Dani Grant (owner / GM) and I had fun picking the two acts to invite to this party; Liz Barnez Band and the Railbenders, each of whom have specific and special meaning to me.

I met Liz not long after she moved here from Louisiana in the late 80s, when I was at KSQI (96.1 K-SKY) and at 90.5FM KCSU.  She and I have remained very good friends, and have long wanted to do a show together.  With her is one of my all time favorite guitarists and another long time friend – Dave Beegle, who I first saw playing in the 80s in the band Sceptre, and then in the 90s in the band Fourth Estate.  Dave also plays in the classic rock band the Jurassicasters.

I met the core of the current lineup of the Railbenders, including original founding members, Jim Dalton and  Tyson Murray, in 2000; when I got actively involved in booking shows regionally.  They have remained one of, if not the most popular country band to have ever come out of the Denver scene.  It’s really hard to get this band, due to Jim’s commitment as the lead guitarist in Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.

I’m deeply honored to be sharing the stage with such great friends, at a venue celebrating it’s 100th year. WOW!  The day is also the exact day to the year that I debuted the new band at the Mish – sounds like a tradition now Dani ;) 

T-shirts have been ordered.  I only ordered 48 t-shirts to commemorate the event.  You’ll have to be at the party to purchase one.


mishawakaThe 10th Anniversary of the Colorado Playlist is coming up August 7th at the historic Mishawaka Amphitheater – All Ages.  Tickets $15 / $17.50 DoS  SUPER EXCITED!  We’re planning on recording the event for a future episode of The Colorado Playlist.  DON’T FORGET => The “Mish” is a shuttle venue.  Parking is extremely limited and is $40 a car.   HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you buy tickets and parking/shuttle passes online.


AFTER SIX YEARS, SPOKESBUZZ SAYS GOODBYE

SpokesBuzz Fort Collins logoTo temper my enthusiasm was the reveal this past week that SpokesBuzz is shuttering.  :(  Huge sad face here gang, not only as a fan of the organization over the past six years, and the belief I have in founder Dani Grant’s vision, but also as a board member the past year.

The organization will cease operations at the end of August, and will immediately begin a transition plan designed to close out its activities.

Since its inception in 2010, SpokesBuzz has been a champion for bands and a connection for fans, providing hundreds of musicians with industry contacts, career guidance, and educational and promotional opportunities, and helping bring global recognition to the Colorado music scene.

Lack of sufficient funding is the main reason for the shut down.  “We simply don’t have the financial support required to sustain the organization into the future,” according to executive director Dani Grant. “…as much as it pains us to shut the doors, we have a responsibility to the musicians and our music community to not only see the writing on the wall, but to act on it in a way that allows us to complete our chapter in the story with love and integrity.”

The board and staff will work with the 11 bands currently in the SpokesBUZZ incubator to support them as the organization closes, and events scheduled through 8/31 (except the annual pool party fundraiser) will go on as planned.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

This week’s pick is also one of the songs in this week’s MMMM.  A bit of humor from Andy Palmer who’s been busy on another new project, a compilation of Colorado musicians and their songs about some of the racial tensions we’ve been witnessing lately.  Some artists are: SF1, Wheelchair Sports Camp, John Common, Lucifury (Theo Wilson), Mama Magnolia, Toad in the Hole, and more.  There’s an indiegogo campaign called ‘We Are Brown’ that’s only going to be up about another week … all proceeds are going to Denver Justice Project.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen to them again (or for the first time) and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist.

I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.

You can vote for as many titles as you like .. the idea is not to see a winner, but to find out which of the new material I’ve debuted (D) or (N) you like enough for me to keep around.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP24 July 2016

I got the best news of the summer recently, when my friends at 105.5 The Colorado Sound let me know just how popular the Colorado Playlist is in Denver on Sundays.  WOW… It’s not a far off dream to imagine making it into the TOP 10 for the hours the show is on the air in the Denver metro! (if i even dared dream of top 5 i’d be afraid of squashing the whole thing lol).

I’m also stoked as hell to now be on the air every Saturday morning from 6AM-NOON on 105.5 … “the fastest growing noncom in the nation.”  You won’t get a lot of Colorado stuff on this shift – this is all about music discovery – local and national and international.

New music in this week’s Monday Morning Music Meeting from Edison, Safe Boating is No Accident and the Patti Fiasco … see below.

The Mishawaka unveiled big news this week.

The Mishawaka Amphitheatre will add to its ongoing 100th anniversary activities by hosting a party and public ceremony on August 21. The festivities will include the ceremonial reveal of a commemorative display that will find a fixed home in the venue’s dance hall. Community-sourced and curated items that honor the historic venue’s past will be shared with the public, creating the foundation for an ongoing exhibit that continues to tell the story of The Mish.

Fans and friends of The Mish are invited to the open house, which will take place from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on August 21, and will feature the exhibit unveiling and a live music ensemble performance via Classic Revolution Northern Colorado. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

The public is invited to contribute to the Mishawaka Amphitheatre display; those with artifacts or memorabilia to share are encouraged to contact info@themishawaka.com.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP23 JULY 2016

Happy 4th of July.  There is no Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM) this week.  I debuted two new tracks this week, The Rifters “I Got News for You,” and “Drug of Choice,” from Dechen Hawk.  We’ll hear more from each over the coming episodes, I’m sure.  There is also no new video this week.

SUPPORT LIVE MUSICMONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY!  MONNNEY! – So the O’Jays sang in the song “For the Love of Money,” back in the 70’s, although what they were singing about was the often depraved nature of mankind .. not the desire to earn a reasonable rate for a provided service.

I’ve now spent virtually my entire life hearing one common refrain among nearly all musicians (performers and songwriters) who are not nationally or internationally recognized — that our services are undervalued, and underpaid for.  Today, increasingly we’re hearing the same from nationally recognized performers and songwriters as well as from the local scene.

I won’t wax heavily here, but this issue is top of mind with me as I am among those regionally who write checks to musicians, and gets paid for performing music.

For many people, music has become as free as the air we breathe.  I cannot say as free as the water we drink, because we actually pay for the water we drink.  Is a music performance or a recording any less valuable that we expect others to pay for it while we enjoy it free of charge?

During these remaining summer months, we will get to experience many “free” events — downtown concert series, festivals with free admission, and more.  We get to stream ad supported interactive and non-interactive Internet radio for free … and it costs nothing to turn on the car radio.  Several restaurants and bars (inc breweries, distilleries, etc) provide “free” entertainment.

While we’re enjoying all this “FREE” music, it would be nice if we remembered that it is not free to record, and it’s not free to produce on stage.   Your support is appreciated … BUY MERCH — TIPS ARE WELCOME …

Colorado Playlist – S10 EP22 June 2016

As July approaches, I am getting increasingly excited for what’s on the way.  Here’s a great list of local/regional festivals – some of which feature Colorado talent significantly.  Looking forward particularly to Bohemian Nights at New West Fest in August – the first time in 12 years it’s been ALL Colorado.  YAY!  <goat jig>.

This column is late today because I just spent 90 minutes on the phone being interviewed for an upcoming Denver Post article … looking fwd to that .. coming I believe in the first week of July .. be on the watch for that.

New music this week is from previously debuted albums by Joseph Tonelli,  Bonnie & the Clydes, Pete Pidgeon and Arcoda, and the Motet. 

Coming soon, new music from Durango’s Cannondolls, Magic Music (formed in the early 70s and just now getting around to an album), the Rifters out of Alamosa and northern NM, and Dechen Hawk’s Jus’ Sayin’ .


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Chris Daniels is among our more valued musical treasures.  Here he is in an episode of eTown – another jewel in our musical landscape.  “Eldorado Canyon” is where the band Magic Music lived in the early ’70s, in an ice cream truck and a school bus.  Coming soon – the first ever Magic Music album — 40 years in the making.

Colorado Playlist – S10 EP21

News broke late last week, before the show posted, that Elephant Revival lost their tour bus and with that, their equipment and personal belongings.  At 9:00 on Friday morning, the band posted:

Greetings friends…. We are writing to let you all know that we are safe and sound this morning. An electrical fire ignited in the back of the bunk room. Luckily, we were already parked at the venue in North Carolina. It all happened very quickly, while some of us were sleeping and some of us were waking. A chorus of voices yelled smoke, as the initial flames encroached upon Daniel’s feet in the back lower bunk. Within two minutes, black smoke billowed through the windows as the interior of the bus went up in flames.

We are so appreciative for this life, our family and friends, and each other. Thank you to the Red Cross, the fire department and the good people of Hickory. We’ve lost much in terms of material possessions and instruments of the trade, yet we remain grateful.

Much love to our friends in E.R.  .. there’s a gofundme page set up to help defray the cost of rebuilding.

Our Monday Morning Music Meeting this week has newcomers Brother Wild “Leave It All Behind” — A wonderful new song dedicated to the world’s #1 rock and roll cancer charity, Love Hope Strength – appropriated titled by Dave Tamkin — Colorado legendary indie pop act Dressy Bessy — and national up and comers Edison who have a new album due out this summer “Civil War”

Colorado Playlist – S10 EP20

To be honest I’m having a hard time collecting my thoughts this morning.  I’m still stunned by the horrifying events that took place in Orlando, Florida yesterday.  I won’t pontificate politically here.  I did enough of that on my FB page yesterday.  Yesterday took much of the luster off what was otherwise an excellent weekend of live local music for me.  Prayers for the family and friends.

This week’s MMMM includes tracks that have been highly praised among my friends in the press.  Joseph Tonelli, Pete Pidgeon & Arcoda and Medic all make this week’s new music entries.  Let me know which you would like me to keep in this week’s poll.

As much as I would hope that support comes easily it does not – anymore so than for anyone else in music.  I am deeply thankful to the Mishawaka Amphitheater for sponsoring this program – and to you for dropping a few bucks in the tip jar on occasion.  Thank you.  FUND ME.

If you’re a Colorado business engaged in music, music related activities, hemp, or other earth friendly products message me for information about how you can support this program.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP19

Monday (early afternoon) — sometimes it takes more hours to recover from a long hot weekend of live music than I care for LOL.  It happens.  Saturday I spent the day in the sun with Mama Lenny & the Remedy, Grant Farm, and Justin Roth as part of the Poudre River Fest in Fort Collins.  Yesterday my recover was broken up by a sound gig in Lyons.  All in all a nice weekend of music.

In the Monday Morning Music Meeting this week I have three tracks from Bonnie & the Clydes, Morning Bear, and Wolf Poets .. unfortunately, SIR (formerly Sarah & the Meanies) did not have an embed file available to share with you.

And let me know if you’re paying attention here … I know you didn’t vote last week (I can “see” you LOL).

Enjoy.
