Last Call Romance – 14th Annual Dacono Music & Spirits Festival Aug 6, 2022

AUG 08 2022 – New entries in this week’s TOP 5 from Elektric Animals, Kunckle Pups and Violet Pilot + NEW music in this week’s MMMM from Jen Korte & the Loss, Cass Clayton, King Cardinal and Lucy Daydream.

WOW! Some of you know I’ve been the entertainment director for the Dacono (Carbon Valley) Music & Spirits Festival since 2008. This year was more than we could have imagined. In fourteen years of doing this show (less the COVID era), no direct support band ever received a call back for an encore. Last minute replacement for Chris Daniels & the Kings, Last Call Romance, is the first as they ripped a seventy-five minute set of Americana based blues, country and rock-and-roll ala 1960.. Watch for them near you. They’ll be appearing in OCT as part of the Poudre Pour in Windsor.

Monday NOV 15, 2021 – There are a lot of places to see live music along the northern Front Range from Denver to Fort Collins. Recently we attended a show at the Brighton Armory, owned and operated by the City of Brighton.

The Armory hosts a variety of music and other programs. The venue is a beautiful 300 capacity room with exquisite sound and lighting elements with regional original art on the walls. Most shows are set up for seating in nicely padded seats while leaving room at the back of the house for those who like to dance.

We recently attended the The Petty Nicks Experience at the Brighton Armory. The Petty Nicks Experience is one of Colorado’s leading tribute bands. Adrienne Osborn plays the role of Stevie Nicks, and out-Stevies the now 73 year old Stevie Nicks. Julian Fulco Perron portrays the late Tom Petty in the show and brings both a reasonable look and vocal style to Petty classics. Here’s a video I took at the show.

CP S15:EP37 2021

Monday SEPT 13 2021 – I put the mask back on. It’s a reminder that COVID is not over with us. #COMUSIC – support.

To go or not to go – that may or may not be the question. Looking at filled football stadiums on tv yesterday, you’d think we returned to 2019 when not one of us had a concern about COVID.

On the other side of that is the number of show cancellations we’re seeing and the number of venues that now require we be vaxxed or have a neg-COVID test result within seventy-two hours.

Check your local listings for cancellations and what you need to do in order to attend.

What is the sound of Colorado in 2021?

Look at what non-commercial community/public/college radio here and around the country play from Colorado and you’d want to think the sound is based in Americana roots grooves.

If you’re a long time fan and you look at who is appearing at this year’s Westword Music Showcase September 17 & 18 you’ll be surprised to find mostly Urban Alternative (a radio format that focuses on hip-hop, R&B and dance genres) acts.

Case in point: Roots Music Report (Colorado) has the new album from Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller at #1 for the 6th consecutive week, with Reverend Freakchild, The High Hawks, Leftover Salmon and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats, A.J. Fullerton, West Side Joe & the Men of Soul, Eddie Turner, Rodney Rice and Nathaniel Rateliff (solo) filling out the TOP 10…

…while Westword is showcasing Dafna, 2MX2, N3ptune, Roka Hueka, Nay Renee, Brothers of Brass, Zanib, Joseph Lamar, Ramakhandra, Neoma, A Meazy, and YaSi on Saturday with less than a handful of more straight-up rock and alternative rock bands.

What’s missing is the sound of Americana – jazz, blues, bluegrass, folk, country-folk, and acoustic roots music with Bison Bone and LVDY the only “Americana” acts represented in the Westword Music Showcase Spotify playlist.

The Westword Music Showcase has certainly changed a lot over the past thirty years, but does Denver really sound that much different from the rest of the state??

CP S15:EP32 2021

MONDAY Aug 09 2021 – This show is produced every Wednesday and broadcast every Saturday through the following Friday. I say that because Bohemian Light Music Festival announced it was canceled on Friday Aug 6, two days AFTER the show was produced and the day BEFORE it began airing statewide.

I asked a major talent agency booking agent friend of mine if he was seeing any other “closures” or cancellations around the region. He said, “I’ve just heard of a couple of smaller things in the Northeast pulling the plug last week. It feels like Groundhog Day all over again.” On the heels of that statement, the New Orleans Jazz Fest announced it was canceled.

Colorado’s Z2 Entertainment has announced it is requiring a vaccination card and/or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of attending shows at the Boulder Theater, the Fox Theater and the Aggie Theater (Fort Collins). Expect other venues to follow their lead.

CP S15:EP29 2021

MONDAY JULY 19 – I needed to wait until this morning for the official announcement for Bohemian Light Music Festival (formerly Bohemian Nights at New West Fest), the first of the three major Colorado-centric music events held over the summer.

This year’s event will be a smaller version of previous festivals, held over two days – Aug 14/15 – instead of three. Of course, it also means fewer acts than in past years: I count 45, down from what is normally about 70-75. Bohemian put together their own ’21 Bohemian Light Music Festival playlist.

Last week, the UMS announced its own scaled down lineup for Aug 27-29. I lost count of Colorado acts when I got over 95, a pretty hefty representation. Check out seventy-five of my favorites for the UMS on Spotify.

Adiel Mitchell, Heavy Diamond Ring, Kiltro, Los Mocochetes, The Milk Blossoms, The Still Tide, The Velveteers and Wildermiss are among the acts performing at both Bohemian Light and the UMS.

The annual Westword Music Showcase has moved to two days, Sept 17-18. Westword has not yet announced its Colorado lineup.

I’ll be featuring acts appearing at these events over the next several weeks.

TOP FIVE WK END JULY 17 2021

  1. LEFTOVER SALMON – Brand New Good Old Days LP (Mar-21)
  2. REVEREND FREAKCHILD – Supramundane Blues LP (Apr-21)

  4. DARKARTS – Story of Sirens EP (May-21)
  5. AMBAR LUCID – Get Lost In the Music EP (Jun-21)

TOP 5 and TOP 30 charts are pulled from published spins at 13 Colorado non-profit community/public and college radio stations.  Designed to benefit non-commercial public and college radio stations, record promoters and artists are among those most likely to benefit from the detailed search function.

Currently 11 Colorado radio stations utilize Spinitron.
