Monday Jan 21, 2019 – one of the most incredible things about the Colorado music scene is the nearly bottomless depth of talent. Every week I hear about new bands that have been playing for sometimes years, that I never heard about before. I also come across new organizations and communities formed to encourage support and collaboration, across genres and styles. Two this week.
Colorado Original Band Community – This forum / group page is for Colorado fans, band members and or folks interested in learning and contributing to The Colorado Original Band / Musician Scene with open transparency. There are many different entities who are members of this page. Club / venue owners, promoters, booking agents, management, industry reps local to national and most important, paying fans. This is also a place for beginners, intermediate and expert level musicians to ask questions of any level or to post interesting, funny or educational info.
For the Love of Locals – For The Love Of Locals was started as a platform to fortify Colorado music. Founded and operated by Colorado musicians, their focus was always centered around showcasing Colorado talent, while giving fans, family and friends an easy and inexpensive way to support their favorite local artists. Their best of Colorado 2018 Spotify playlist is worth a listen.
Every week I post up the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting). This is your chance to let me know what you think of the new songs I played on the show. I do hope you’re enjoying this feature, and will continue to make your vote known, to KEEP or DELETE.
