I’m baaaaack! LOL. It’s summer. YAY!! It’s about time .. now folks can commence on hatin on the heat LOL . This time of year is more about what live music I’m diggin’ than what records I’m all about. And this wkend really was the kickoff with the Westword Music Showcase. You can catch a “review” of the acts I saw as soon as I’m able to convert the files and mash them up into something serviceable.
Last Thursday at the Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live show, we had a perfect night for the legendary Shakedown Street now in its 27th year – and of course only one original member is still in the band after all this time. Still though if you’re a deadhead, this band slays.
I spent a good part of my father’s day with Fred Gowdy, aka Freddi Love Gowdy, of Freddi-Henchi Band fame … and now of Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy. My conversation with Freddi will appear here and on the air in July as part of Offstage Beyond the Music.
I’m very excited to be presenting some very incredible Colorado talent this summer …
