(Monday Aug 24) The gym is closed for a week for maintenance. They forgot that I need maintaining too LOL. Sheesh. Okay, so the weekend was uneventful. About the best thing that happened was me being invited to perform on Sept 11 and 12 as part of the RimRock Music & Camping Festival in Conifer, along with several other solo acts in the hospitality tent. Main stage acts include Kyle Hollingsworth, Dragondeer, the Drunken Hearts, In the Whale and others. So Miss Pattie and I will be there instead of going on a road trip the following weekend to Telluride and Durango, that something always seems to prevent from happening.
There will not be an Offstage Beyond the Music for September. The festival season got the best of all of us and I was not able to schedule a time to go sit with a friend and chat. Look for the return of OSBTM in October. In the meantime, here’s the final segment of my conversation with award winning blues musician and educator Dan Treanor.
FRI & SAT SEPT 11 & 12 – RimRock Music & Camping Festival in Conifer (solo tent / 30 min sets) featuring Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Dragondeer, The Drunken Hearts, In the Whale and more.
SUN SEPT 13 w/ Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene @ Avogardro’s Number in Fort Collins — this is (tentatively) the final show of the season with one of my best pals and one of the absolutely BEST pedal steel players in the state, Chris Kennison. To say that I’ll miss him after today is a gross understatement, as he returns to AZ for the winter to play in the Arizona Opry.
It’s not very often an opening happens in my limited sponsorships. I’m sorry to say that Colorado Case Company will be leaving the show at the end of August. Chuck Grewe has been a friend since he played with me in a band in the early 90s. Along the way his brother Bill and I got to be pretty good friends also. Thanks to the both of them for their support the past 18 months. I wish them considerable good fortune as they move forward with their business. Email me at email@example.com for more information about getting your event and/or business name heard statewide on The Colorado Sound.

This concludes the outdoor summer season at “The Mish” … I hope to see you there for this fantastic show. Nathaniel & company blew the sod off the lawn at the conclusion of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest on Aug 16. And that field held a few thousand people! What WILL they do to the 1000 that can cram in the Mish’s yard? You really don’t want to miss this.
