CP S13 EP27 2019

Monday July 15, 2019 – Rumors started to circulate recently on Facebook (yeah, I know – right?) that Colorado Music Hall of Fame band Sugarloaf had dropped tracks for a new album.  Of course original members Jerry Corbetta (lead singer), Bob Yeazel (guitarist) and Bob Raymond (bassist) have all passed away, so the news of some kind of Sugarloaf “reunion” came as a real surprise.  Turns out the story has a little truth to it .. .from a family of the band perspective.

According to Bob Raymond‘s son Aaron, “We did go into studio with my son (Bailey Raymond aka Kick Stevens) and re-recorded Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You and Texas Two Lane. Clark Hagan (local Denver producer) did the producing.  He also did a recording of Green-Eyed Lady with (original members) Bob Webber (guitar), Bobby Pickett (bass), Myron Pollack (drums) and another guy from Nashville. Sorry I don’t remember his name. Hope to have the two new songs released this winter. We are still working on the vocals.”

Stay tuned …

I reported last week on the wonderful compilation from Longmont’s Wind Over the Earth recording studio’s “Longmont Project” to benefit Longmont High School’s music program.  The new track below from Bridget Law is from that project.

This week, the Boulder Daily Camera has a story on Future Arts Foundation (FAF) and their series called Strings & Stories taking place in Longmont. Future Arts Foundation is “a nonprofit that supplies musical instruments and art materials to public schools and after-school programs.”  Strings & Stories is a concert series put together by FAF and 105.5 The Colorado Sound.

CP S13 EP 26 2019

MONDAY JULY 8, 2019 — Happy July 4th, belatedly of course.  I hope you enjoyed your long weekend and got to take in some live music at one of the numerous festivals, municipal events and/or outdoor venues.  I know the storms played havoc with several shows, including Leslie Tom‘s set at Greeley Stampede that unfortunately got rained out after only 30 minutes.

Leslie will be back headlining the Colorado Playlist presents show Well-O-Rama, Aug 17th in Wellington.  I’ll be hosting this new annual event in Wellington, and will be appearing with my band, GOATZ! Also appearing will be the Devil’s Share, Sugar Britches, and Jackie & the Racket.

Wind Over the Earth is a recording studio in Longmont.  On July 1 they began releasing an 18 song compilation benefiting the Longmont High School music program.  The album features cuts from Foxfeather, Shanna in a Dress, Clandestine AmigoTaylor Sims (Bonnie & the Clydes), Bridget Law (Elephant Revival) and Natalie Tate to name just a few.  The full album will be released publicly on July 22.  According to studio owner, Mark Venezia, the album will be made available for a donation to the Longmont High School music program.

New this week is the COLORADO PLAYLIST on Spotify.  I’ve tried tying this to the weekly MMMM but it didn’t seem to work to attract regular weekly fans and listeners.  This will be a permanent playlist on Spotify that I’ll update regularly with new releases and older “hits.”  Enjoy

Don’t forget to vote for your favorites of 2010 and 2011 … and soon 2012-2018, as we get closer to the best of the Decade 2010-2019 that will air in early 2020.

MONDAY JUNE 24, 2019 – Rumors swirled over the weekend concerning former Yonder Mountain String Band founding member Jeff Austin.  Despite numerous social media posts alluding to a possible suicide, official reports emerged that he suffered a undisclosed medical emergency and was is Seattle with family being attended to.  What little information is available, and crowdfunding has been set up at Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

In this week’s show I highlighted some of the best of 2013 in  HOUR 1 and some of the best of 2014 in HOUR 2.  Over the next many weeks I will continue to highlight some of the best of each year as we approach the BEST OF THE DECADE.  With that, I’ve put up two polls already for Best of 2010 and 2011, so you can vote for your favorites from those years.

MMMM this week = Gun Street Ghost, Heavy Diamond Ring, Bobby Messano, Swerve, The Threadbarons, and Brian Bourgault – KEEP or DELETE?

CP S13 EP24 2019

Monday June 17, 2019 – One of the most consistent issues I hear both musicians and patrons talk about are “empty rooms.”  As a former venue operator, and a life-long performing musician, I get it.  I play in rooms with only a handful of people present.  I’ve booked shows that only a handful of people have attended.  There is no one single answer that will solve this issue.

I’ve performed in support of world renown musicians to empty rooms …as in only ten people, and five of them were associated with the show.  This actually happened to me not long ago, where I played as the opener for an nationally recognized award winning singer-songwriter in front of ten people. I’ve also seen and performed in support of platinum selling bands that drew only a couple hundred people to the show.

Some venues are “concert” rooms – meaning the band is totally responsible for how many people attend – it’s essentially a popularity contest.  If you’re a new band, or an up and coming local band, chances are likely you won’t have many people in “your” audience, and you hope to draw from those who show up to see the headliner – which supposedly does have a local draw.

Some venues are established restaurant / bar / music rooms.  Some have a regular clientele. We all want to play those rooms. Some do not and therefore rely on the popularity of the band  -the band draw.  I’ve managed rooms like that, and performed at more than I can remember.  Sometimes there is a crowd to play to, and in some cases the draw is minimal or not there at all.

My father, who owned a jazz venue in the early 60s, also complained about this issue – both as the owner of a venue and as a professional working musician.  The issue is not new.  However, today the issue is exacerbated by there being many hundreds of places to play in our region, and several thousands of bands and solo acts wishing to perform publicly – both from our own region as well as those out touring.

SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC – It’s the lifeblood of our industry.

Monday June 10, 2019

According to the Denver Post, in an article dated SEPTEMBER 14, 2018, “Denver’s music industry is growing faster than its energy, aerospace and biotech industries.”  The story was apparently culled from an academic report, “A Quantitative Analysis of Colorado’s Music Industry” (May 2018) authored by Michael Seman, PhD, Director of Creative Industries Research and Policy, University of Colorado Denver College of Arts & Media.

The essence of the article is that “Statewide, the music industry is responsible for more than 16,000 jobs and just over $1.4 billion in revenue. The most robust components in terms of employment and revenue are “Musicians, Managers, and Agents” and “Live Events” pointing to Colorado’s strength in creating music and showcasing it live.”

Thank you for supporting music FROM Colorado, IN Colorado – on stages and on the air.

Happy post FoCOMX 2019.  Congratulations to the entire organization for an 11th anniversary.  I’ve performed with my band for 4 years now, in four different rooms.  Before that I did sound for many years in various venues.  As the event has grown so has the complexity of putting it all together.

The staff and volunteers, the venues and production people  have created a seamless music experience for the entire region, regardless of age, regardless of genre, or if an act is original, a tribute or a cover band.  It really is a remarkable achievement and a testament to the love of live music in our state.

Congratulations to Cody Qualls from Face Vocal Band for his nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year for the 2019 A Cappella Music Awards!

WOW! It’s going to be pushing 75 degrees on Wednesday … ok, I got that out of my system.  I drive a convertible.  I need the sun (and copious amounts of SPF 100 sunscreen).

Besides producing and hosting the Colorado Playlist, I also front my own project called GOATZ! (appropo, yes?)  Honestly, I’ve struggled over the decision to air my own work on my show.  I don’t know if I will or won’t if for no other reason than there is so much tremendous music hitting the in-box; I keep pushing mine off to the back of the line.  That said, here’s my six song debut, Sweet Inspiration.

Earlier this season I posted that KFFR (Winter Park) will be adding the show to their programming.  Last week I appeared on Steve Skinner’s show to talk about my debut record.  He informed me while on the air that they will be adding the Colorado Playlist, hopefully in April .. or as soon as they move into their new studios.

The Colorado Playlist is funded partly by the sponsors on this page along with whatever tips I get from you via the funding and sponsorship page.  Other funding comes from whatever money I can personally contribute – so if you’re inclined, and you like the debut, I’d be grateful if you’d download for whatever amount you’d like.  And thank you.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Over the past several years a handful of hip-hop bands from the region have risen to my attention.  Animated Earth rises to my attention on the strength of several members from bands such as Michal Menert, The Pretty Fantastics, Sassfactory, Grim & Darling, Whiskey Blanket, Glitta Kings and Equally Challenged to name a handful, including such notables as Jordan Polovina (MPC, vocals and cello) and Jessa Raskin (vocals, guitar and slide) who last teamed up in Grim & Darling.
