ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF
ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF mobilizes the Colorado music and media communities to raise funds to assist musicians throughout the U.S. affected by natural disasters.
The new website is http://www.rockymountainmusicrelief.org. You’ll find up to date events, a blog annotating where we’re at and what we’re doing, and an about section with brief bios on the founders – all of whom I am deeply indebted to.
This past weekend, we were directly involved in the planning and execution of two events – one at the Oriental Theater in Denver on Friday, and one on Sunday at Dazzle Jazz in Denver. Both events were well attended.
We raised over $700 for the cause. Additionally, other musicians / bands have stepped up to do their own charity events, and to date they’ve raised over $1500 .. all of which will eventually find it’s way via MusiCares to professional working musicians in need in the affected hurricane ravaged communities.
IN COLORADO MUSIC HISTORY
CANNED HEAT – Before moving to Los Angeles with his family, Canned Heat lead singer Bob the Bear Hite was raised in Denver. What happened on SATURDAY, OCT 21 1967 that lead to the song My Crime?
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
I’m not always out in front with new music .. and this new cut from OneRepublic actually came out this past June. It is perhaps one of their most noteworthy songs – written w/ T-Bone Burnett for the movie “an inconvenient sequel – Truth to Power.” There are not a lot of lyric videos I’d post – this one is an exception. It speaks to our love of our planet – Earth.
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.
NOTE: In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp, Reverbnation or YouTube.
