The Colorado Sound S8|EP30 + Carbon Valley Music Fest Recap

Chris K CVMF 2014I’ve had the privilege of producing the show for the Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival for seven years.  This year was the first time we expanded to a two night show.  It was also the first time we had seven regional distilleries present for the spirits tasting and competition event.  We also brought in a new lighting director and expanded the kids’ activities.

I was beyond thrilled to present four very legendary Colorado artists this year- Richie Furay, Chris Daniels, Fred Gowdy (Freddi-Henchi Band), and Sean Kelly (the Samples).   Presenting Richie was one of the highlights of the many years I’ve introduced bands to audiences around Northern Colorado, and one of the highlights of my life in music.

Richie’s “Kind Woman” has always been one of my most favorite songs of all time.  Nearly every second of his performance of that song is in the recap video below — along with footage from Chris Daniels & the Kings with Freddi Gowdy, Chris Daniels with Richie Furay, Mojo Mama, Slow Caves, Savage Cabbage, and the Mojo Music Academy Band Camp program … I’m sorry I was unable to get any video of Alterity.

A BIG thank you to the folks who came up to me all weekend and said they heard the show on KUNC … folks came from Conifer, Aurora, Boulder, and Fort Collins.  I got mad compliments about stage, sound, and lights all weekend .. much love  to my buddies from Mighty Fine Productions (sound), Marshall Austin Productions (stage), and Maniac Productions (lighting)

Here’s a recap of the weekend …
