Well, it’s pretty much officially fall (SPT 21) and the summer outdoor live music season is over. Fortober Fest in Fort Collins is among the last of the multi-band shows I know of regionally, and that happened on the 17th. So long summer – it’s time for bands (including mine) to move indoors into regional music studios — among those who I know have secured studio time includes the Railsplitters, who recently returned from a tour in Germany…. along with the Yawpers and Pandas & People, who are both out of state working on pre-production right now. More on Pandas & People in this week’s The Trusted Ear Scene Report with Dave Herrera. Music bed courtesy of Jux County from their new album Coral.
Sad news broke over the weekend. Jerry Corbetta, the keyboard player/ singer and founding member for Colorado Music Hall of Fame inductees, Sugarloaf, (Green Eyed Lady) passed away on Friday. He had been admitted to hospice earlier in the week, but there has been no news yet on the exact cause of death. Jerry had been confined to full time care since being diagnosed with Pick’s disease, a form of dementia, several years ago.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
Certainly, one of the top album picks of 2016 is SHEL’s “Just Crazy Enough.” They add to the allure with a stunning Samuel Stewart remix of the album’s top single “You Could Be My Baby”
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation. I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.
In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.
It’s not a competition. It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week. You can select as many as you think I should keep in the “playlist.”
