This weekend I ran this real impromptu non-scientific poll asking about buying habits – and no surprise it was sparsely answered, mostly by musicians or those involved in local music. I will be developing a new poll soon that is more properly formatted, that a better suited analyst than I can manage.
Local music requires our support. The Colorado Sound is about telling the big picture – from the superstar to the newly born. It’s about sharing the stories of my friends like Chris Daniels, John Macy, Wendy Woo, Hazel Miller and local legends known and unknown – David Glasser, Eddie Turner, Reed Foehl, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Richie Furay and Colorado Music Hall of Fame Executive Director G. Brown. You can hear their stories in Offstage Beyond the Music. This week I’m extremely proud to present an intimate conversation with Hazel Miller.
I’d like to thank the Greeley Blues Jam for supporting the Colorado Sound. It’s an incredible honor to have their support. Thank you to the Greeley Chamber of Commerce and Al Bricker. The Greeley Blues Jam features some of the best loved local blues, blues-rock, and R&B acts with headliners Delbert McClinton, Elvin Bishop and more … I hope you’ll join me on June 12 & 13.
Also coming up .. June 6 at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre – Locals x Locals a festival supporting local musicians. This is why I do what I do – that we can celebrate and honor local musicians. The goal of Locals x Locals is to create a space for our musical community to thrive. If you are a local musician, we would like to offer you free admission and a beer. If you’re a fan, please be honest and support your local music scene with your ticket purchase.Treat this as an opportunity to meet new musicans and catch up with old friends.
And finally — AUG 9 at The Mishawaka Amphitheatre – The Colorado Sound Presents Hazel Miller | Chris Daniels and the Kings .. with special guest opening bands Goatz! (my band) and Williams Reserve (my son’s band). Can you see my grin?? 🙂
