MONDAY SEPT 09, 2019 – Twenty years ago a very special woman in my life created the “picky grumpy old goat” after I returned from a tour of England/Scotland with my band and quit. That idea blossomed into “goat” as I’ve been known ever since. Miss Pattie, aka Mrs. Goat, passed away in 2016.
Over the past few years I’ve asked a handful of graphic artists to refresh the old logo that Miss Pattie did for me. I’m very happy and honored that My Blue Sky drummer Jamie McGregor (Zamar Screen Printing Inc.) caught the essence of the original and provided the perfect update …and a new banner to go with it. Thank you Jamie!
Speaking of My Blue Sky. Original founding member and bassist, David Brandt, has announced he’s leaving the band to focus on family and other personal goals. Good luck to David and the band.
Congratulations are in order for one of Colorado’s BEST – SUCH – whose new album Wide Nose, Full Lips landed in the national Billboard charts. The album hit #25 in the national R&B/Soul Album chart and #5 in the national Heatseekers chart, across all genres. The album debuted at #9 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts. Check out the latest single from her album in this week’s MMMM below.
I’m also very happy to premier the new release from Sean Kelly of the Samples aka the Samples called Indian Summer. The Samples are a Colorado legacy band that formed after Sean moved here from New England in 1987 and formed the band, then based in Boulder.
Add to those fantastic new releases one from Jurassic Mark, aka Mark Bliesener, aka Band Guru. Mark Bliesener is one of Colorado’s unsung music industry legacies. Among other things, he is credited with coining the band name Dead Kennedys. He has been the manager for both Lyle Lovett and Big Head Todd & the Monsters. At age 70 he just dropped his solo debut. It’s a rock n roll record with plenty of old school garage and punk. It’s not yet available online. When it is, I’ll share it. In the meantime, if you missed this week’s show you can stream it in the archive section at www.coloradosound.org
Now that the summer outdoor concert season is over, my band GOATZ! is back to playing at some of our favorite indoor venues, and a couple of new ones. In particular, we’ve very happy to be playing at the new Broadway Roxy and Nissi’s Entertainment Venue & Event Center (Lafayette) in October.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
One of the very intriguing artists to emerge from Denver the past few years, Kayla Marque almost didn’t get here. A couple of years ago, she suffered from vocal problems, along with other personal issues, that prompted the title of her upcoming album Brain Chemistry (Left Brain / Right Brain) on which she deals not only with matters of the heart, but mental health issues as well.
