CP S13 EP09 2019

Monday Feb 25 2019

If you missed it, here’s the entire interview with Eddie Roberts, a member of the band The New Mastersounds from England, a Colfax Ave resident the past four years, and a founding partner in the new Denver label Color Red.  Run time = 20 minutes.

Coming up in a future episode, Colorado Music Hall of Fame inductee as a member of Firefall – Rick Roberts joins me. Rick and former Zephyr guitarist Jock Bartley formed Firefall in 1974. Rick was also the voice of the Flying Burrito Brothers from 1970 to 1972 and recorded two albums under his own name, before forming Firefall.

New music hit this week from my own band, GOATZ!  Veronique Van Pelt, and Drew Ballantyne.  Fortunately, it was a light week because I still have releases to get to from Amy and the Peace Pipes, Bison Bone and others.

Last week’s MMMM was off the charts .. we set a new five year record for most visits and most views and most votes.

I overheard someone say recently that he wished more bands would do protest songs. Intuit is a violin / cello driven Rocky Mountain acoustic groove-rock band with roots in a diverse range of musical styles.  They’re also a bit political – or at least socially conscious.

Anyone doubting that the Album of the Year is for 2018?  Oh, and have you heard of Nathaniel’s new candy bar?

“A Little Honey” Handcrafted Chocolate with Honey, Blood Orange, and Marigold

“Inspired by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ “A Little Honey”, this limited edition craft chocolate is a fundraising collaboration between The Marigold Project, Small Batch America, and Fruition Chocolate Works. Made with 74% dark heirloom Costa Rican cacao, organic honey, blood orange, and marigold petals. Packaged in a letterpress sleeve.

Proceeds from ‘A Little Honey’ will benefit The Marigold Project and Denver Urban Garden’s work to support Denver residents in creating sustainable, food-producing neighborhood community gardens. DUG knows that in order to make lasting change, the community needs to drive it. That’s why every one of their urban gardens and farms have been started and led by local residents. They currently have over 170 gardens in six counties in the Metro Denver Area.”

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP16

Right up front I want to thank Oskar Blues Brewery for becoming a major sponsor of this show.  Oskar Blues has been part of my family for a decade and I’m ecstatic that they believe enough in the show to support it.

OB is celebrating 20 years in Lyons this coming weekend with a killer lineup that includes Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Gasoline Lollipops, Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams and many others.  Of special note – Sunday will be a legends of Colorado blues artist showcase I intend to be present for.

It’s been a very very long time since I stayed up until 4AM.  I managed to land a room to mix for the FoCOMX weekend, and we landed a prime 9:15PM Friday night slot for the band at the Mainline Ale House – one of the nicer restaurants and music venues in Old Town Fort Collins.  What was planned to be outside on the rooftop, fortunately was moved indoors into a room that was more than adequate for live music.

Stationed for sound duties at East Coast on Linden St, for both nights, I enjoyed the juxtaposition of singer-songwriters and folk singers, and DJs creating often unique mixes of various styles of appropriate music made for dancing.

I spent 16 years mixing music in dance clubs in the 70s and 80s.  Several of those years were here in Northern Colorado, in Fort Collins and Greeley.  I was thrust back to those years as I watched the lineup of local mix masters employ their craft.

I marveled at how other than technology, nothing much has changed in the art of mixing music for a dance crowd – and how the “hit” still matters most when you want to get people on the floor.  One dj did not employ that knowledge, and paid the price of a near empty room that lacked energy.

Michelle Petrie Trio – FoCOMX 9 – East Coast

Festivals like FoCOMX are motivated by allowing space for a diversity of people who make music – from neophyte stage performers to unequivocally well rehearsed, polished, and professional legends of music along the Front Range.

Two acoustic acts I thought showed a lot of promise were the Michelle Petrie Trio and PoorBoy, who will undoubtedly be changing their name.   PoorBoy is recording their second EP with Justin Roth in Fort Collins.

String Theory on Friday was one of the most creative acts of the weekend – featuring electric bass with harp (not harmonica – a real harp; a small laptop version).

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP15

So I did not make it out to see any live music this weekend. Instead, a friend of mine and I found a lovely out of the way, small town diner to have brunch at – and the green chili was to die for.  I was planning on seeing a show Saturday night but wound up having dinner at a friend’s house.

I emcee’d the Earth Day celebration in Fort Collins on Saturday, and did manage to catch the Waido Experience, and Matthew Mahern – aka P-Man.  Matt will be performing with four acts at this year’s FOCOMX this coming weekend.  I hadn’t seen Michael Waido and his guys for 8 years, as we all went in life directions – Waido with kids now .. that sort of things. So it was nice to catch up.  Anyone who knows P-Man already knows he’s a staple of the Fort Collins scene.

I was not able to secure embeds for two of this week’s  MMMM entries – the new single from Andy Palmer, and the new Head for the Hills, which drops May 12.  That said, there are some tasty nuggets this week from Tennis, Debajo del Agua, Analog Son with Devon Parker, and shark dreams.

The Colorado Sound S9|EP32 2015

(Monday Aug 24) The gym is closed for a week for maintenance.  They forgot that I need maintaining too LOL.  Sheesh.  Okay, so the weekend was uneventful.  About the best thing that happened was me being invited to perform on Sept 11 and 12 as part of the RimRock Music & Camping Festival in Conifer, along with several other solo acts in the hospitality tent.  Main stage acts include Kyle Hollingsworth, Dragondeer, the Drunken Hearts, In the Whale and others.  So Miss Pattie and I will be there instead of going on a road trip the following weekend to Telluride and Durango, that something always seems to prevent from happening.

There will not be an Offstage Beyond the Music for September.  The festival season got the best of all of us and I was not able to schedule a time to go sit with a friend and chat.  Look for the return of OSBTM in October.  In the meantime, here’s the final segment of my conversation with award winning blues musician and educator Dan Treanor.

GOATZ!  SHOWS

GOATZ LOGOTHURS SEPT 10 w/ Jimbo Darville & the Truckadours + Daniella Katzir @ the Walnut Room in Denver

FRI & SAT SEPT 11 & 12RimRock Music & Camping Festival in Conifer (solo tent / 30 min sets) featuring Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Dragondeer, The Drunken Hearts, In the Whale and more.

SUN SEPT 13 w/ Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene @ Avogardro’s Number in Fort Collins — this is (tentatively) the final show of the season with one of my best pals and one of the absolutely BEST pedal steel players in the state, Chris Kennison.  To say that I’ll miss him after today is a gross understatement, as he returns to AZ for the winter to play in the Arizona Opry.

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

It’s not very often an opening happens in my limited sponsorships.  I’m sorry to say that Colorado Case Company will be leaving the show at the end of August.  Chuck Grewe has been a friend since he played with me in a band in the early 90s.  Along the way his brother Bill and I got to be pretty good friends also.  Thanks to the both of them for their support the past 18 months.  I wish them considerable good fortune as they move forward with their business.  Email me at chriskmusic@gmail.com for more information about getting your event and/or business name heard statewide on The Colorado Sound.

The Colorado Sound S9 EP26

RDP_1271BWCrushed.  Absolutely crushed.  I’ve never been so busy.  Truth: some days I feel it would be easier to have a “real job” with an expected number of hours, and time off to just do leisurely things.  I enjoy no such luxury as I attempt in my final decades to tell as much of the story as I am able about music and musicians in Colorado.  Well, that and doing sound and/or emceeing and/or producing shows and/or rehearsing with the new lineup of Goatz!, back after a nearly six year hiatus (new recordings and/or videos coming  in August).

Hmmm … seems I slipped into the “Chris abyss” (coined by Morris Beegle from Hapi Skratch Entertainment) on that first paragraph.

I completely and utterly screwed up this month’s edition of Offstage …Beyond the Music with Freddi Gowdy.  I got new equipment last month to solve a long standing production quality issue, and didn’t get it right.  So for July, as we celebrate the one year anniversary of the podcast series, I’ve decided to pull out segments from some of my favorites of the past year .. starting off with one from the very first episode with Chris Daniels last July … 

jill-sobuleJill Sobule is one of our native artists who has long gone unnoticed as such among local music fans.  She grew up in Denver, went to St. Mary’s, and to CU before heading off to Spain and other parts on her musical journey. So to lead things off this week I did an artist two-fer with one of her biggest hits, and something from her most recent album “Dottie’s Charms” from 2014 – that was largely influenced by a charm bracelet she found at the bottom of a drawer, “…hung with about 20 pewter charms, including an airplane, the Statue of Liberty and a disc bearing the name Dorothy.”   See playlist below to listen to the song via YouTube.
