The Colorado Sound S8|EP04 Jan 2014

boninwf back stage nite 1 2012I had a great day Friday.  It was the annual JeffCo Jamboree, put on by Venture West.  I know I’m about to leave someone out, but the room really did show a great representation of entertainment talent, along with quite a few (over 60) of the region’s top talent buyers/event producers.  In attendance:  Chris Daniels, Megan Burtt, Wendy Woo, Katie Glassman, Katey Laurel, the Indulgers, Cowboy Dave, Cowboy Brad Fitch, the ultimate cowboy – Bill Barwick, Ryan Chrys, Andy Hackbarth, Dr. Izzy Band, and easily another five dozen acts from around the area …in what has become an annual kick off to the new year for those of us in the “business” of putting on spring, summer, and fall shows (either as buyers or entertainers).  Everyone is excited to get the year going, and at least one regional buyer remarked to me on my FB page that they met several new acts they’re going to look into for the  upcoming festival season.

Speaking of which, since not everyone can attend such an event, I now offer a buyer service package as well as the media package I’ve offered the past six years now.  Hit me up for more info at

BHTM Black Beehive

The brand new Big Head Todd & the Monsters record “Black Beehive,” hit my desk this week.  I have to say that I really am excited for this one.  Even though the single, “Josephina,” has been available on YouTube since Oct, it’s a super solid track that really ought to be a core current on many commercial and non-commercial AAA (adult album alternative) stations around the state (KBCO, KUNC, Radio 94.9FM, KRFC, etc).  I’d expect this to be one of the top three most spun albums of the year.
