CP S14 EP22 2020

MONDAY JUNE 08 2020 –I received word over the weekend from KDNK (Carbondale) that the show now airs Saturday and Sunday mornings at 5AM.  See updated stations and times.

News is starting to come in about live in person music around the region.   Conditions vary, but we are beginning to see some glimmers and pictures and testimony – expressing considerable pleasure and bands on stages.

FOCOMA (Fort Collins Musician Association) and ODell Brewing have teamed up with the Holiday Twin Drive-In Fort Collins for Drive and Jive – a weekly Tuesday night series showcasing some of Northern Colorado’s popular acts – including Bonnie & the Cyldes, Sugar Britches, The Beeves, Slow Caves, Cary Morin and Del Shamen featuring John Magnie and Steve Amadee from the Subdudes along with Nick Forster (E-Town) and Jock Bartley (Firefall).

Colorado Playlist sponsor, The Mishawaka, has reopened for food, music and movies – but in an extremely scaled down fashion.  Currently, the “Mish” can only sit 96 across their property at any one time.  Local duos, trios and the occasional band will appear on the outdoor stage.  Reservations only.  Please tip the musicians.

While some local restaurants are opening and offering live music in some form, bars, festivals and major events continue to either cancel or postpone.  Among the latest to cancel is the Boulder County FairChautauqua Boulder canceled the rest of their season as well.

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music. Bohemian Foundation’s NoCo Music Relief Fund provides assistance for individuals in the Northern Colorado Music Community who are severely financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic

Monday May 18, 2020 – WHEW … I can’t get my head around a summer with no live music events.  Every day brings more announcements of cancellations and venue closures from around the state.  Summer is a time when most bands get to play to new audiences, and new audiences get to experience new bands and old favorites.

Typically, recorded music is instrumental in getting people excited to see their favorite acts perform live at summer municipal events.  Performance revenue along with merch sales provides most of the money a band uses to record new music. Which leads me to wonder how much new music will be recorded this year.

The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce announced the cancellation of Jazz Festival, Solshine, Winter Park Uncorked, High Note Thursdays, Fitness in the Park, the Run for Independence, the 4th of July celebration, the Switchback concert and Tequila and Tacos.

The City of Dacono announced the cancellation of the 13th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival for 2020.

Last week I reported on the closing of Live at Jacks in downtown Denver.  On Friday May 15, 3 Kings Tavern on South Broadway in Denver announced it was closing permanently, unable to pay the rent after a solid 14 year run.  Announcing the closure on Instagram, the owners posted “The spirit of Kings will never die.”

Monday April 13, 2020 If Easter in the traditional sense is about resurrection, I can only hope that our outdoor live music season is resurrected from all this isolation we’ve been experiencing.  That said, it was announced this past week that the long running Telluride Bluegrass Festival has been cancelled for this June as has the Pagosa Folk & Bluegrass Festival, and the Dark Sky Festival scheduled for late June in Westcliffe.

Monday March 2, 2020 – Another week and another weekend full of live music.  Friday night I emcee’d the Future Arts Foundation‘s Winter Folk: Music & Photography Showcase at the St. Vrain event center in Longmont.  Congrats to Travis Albright and his team for an amazing month of music that included some of the top Americana country-folk, singer-songwriters and bluegrass in our scene today along with a few nationally recognized names.  Look for more from FAF in the near future.

Saturday night was spent at Washington’s FoCO for the 105.5 The Colorado Sound 4th b-day party.  Being one of the staff and on air talent at 105.5 has been among the greatest joys of my 41 years in NoCO broadcasting.

The opening act was Kiltro, a Denver band fronted by guitarist/vocalist Chris Castillo, originally from Chile.  According to the guests who attended with me (2 most recently moved here from New Jersey), Kiltro won the night because of their Chilean influences and because the vocals appeared secondary to the music, which reminded them of Pink Floyd at times.

Now managed by 7s Management (Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats, The Motet, Brent Cowles), Kiltro will be appearing at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park and the Gothic Theater in Denver over the next couple of weeks.
