MONDAY APRIL 03 2023 – As I sat down to put this week’s post together, I got word that the new Leftover Salmon album will drop in May. There’s already a single out that I’ll get to in next week’s show. That’s on top of Leftover Salmon cofounder, “uncle” Vince Herman‘s, debut solo effort that moved up two spots to #6 in the running 2023 TOP 20.

If you’re hoping for a new Big Head Todd & the Monsters release before their Colorado Music Hall of Fame induction, dream on. Band keyboardist, Jeremy Lawton, informed me that “…we are doing a “maybe” on July. Doing a big 7-8 week thing with Blues Traveler so we are going to try to have something for that.” So, July…

You may also notice an asterisk (*) in front of *The Wood Brothers. As I mentioned in the MARCH / 2023 TOP 20 spins report this weekend, *The Wood Brothers are not, specifically speaking, a locally based band. The asterisk (*) denotes Colorado expat musicians who were born and/or raised here, or got started here (or for some other compelling reason) and are still considered part of #COMUSIC.
