The Colorado Sound S9|EP13 March/April 2015

Watch this.

REALLY???  Hazel Miller, who is celebrating her 30th year of music in Colorado has NEVER played the Historic Mishawaka Amphitheatre??.  And SHE isn’t the only one.  Turns out my pals in Chris Daniels & the Kings have never played there either.  How the hell is that even possible???

No sooner had Hazel spoken those words than I knew we had to correct this historical mistake, so I called up another great friend and Colorado music lover, Mish owner Dani Grant and explained it to her … after all – 30 years .. wow … and she felt the same – like HOW is that even possible? RIGHT?! No hesitation – VERY PROUD to announce


featuring Freddi “Love” Gowdy (Freddi/Henchi Band)
and special guests Goatz! aka Chris K and Friends and Family

$18 advance tickets on sale Wednesday April 1 

The last full band show my wife and I did was Oct 25, 2009 – our wedding – at Oskar Blues in Lyons.  A few weeks ago our drummer, Carlos Newman (Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck), FB’d a msg saying “it’s the year of the Goat – it’s time to play again.”  Can’t argue with that.  Absolutely looking forward to joining my friends Hazel and Chris for this historic performance on a beautiful summer afternoon and evening up the Poudre Canyon.

and that’s not all we’re up to this summer.  SATURDAY JUNE 6 THE MISHAWAKA AMPHITHEATRE & THE COLORADO SOUND PRESENT LOCALS X LOCALS More info on these and other great events this summer at … I don’t want to spoil “the ending” LOL 😉


So that video segment with Hazel … normally I only leave the audio field recorder on when I’m sitting and chatting with my friends for episodes of Offstage…Beyond the Music, our monthly podcast series featuring Colorado musicians and music industry personalities.  I turned the audio and video on for this one.  We spent well over 2 hours chatting it up … here’s a tease.


I went looking for something from Hazel and Chris and found this one shot at Denver’s Gothic Theater in 2006.  Looking fwd to seeing something come out of the Mish show in Aug … I think we might need someone to chronicle the night.
