Colorado Playlislt – S11 EP12

You all crushed last week’s Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM), with Christomo leading the pack for votes, and a high KEEP score.  Two cuts this week… have fun.

Sometimes I’m lucky enough to be way out in front of a band’s digital release.  The only way you’ll hear the new releases this week from Dragondeer, Andy Thomas’s Dust Heart, Todd Adelman & the Country Mile, and TMule is on terrestrial radio – see stations and times.  Or maybe on Wednesday at the Colorado Sound All Colorado Music Meeting ….


GOAT ON THE TOWN

I know that’s some corny shit .. but what the hell.

Dave Beegle – 4th Annual NoCO Hemp Expo – April 1, 2017

Friday night my band and I played at the Tasty Weasel, the Oscar Blues brew pub in Longmont.  New and upcoming modifications to the room promise to improve the overall sound quality of the room.  They have expanded the room slightly, will be adding new sound panels and moving the “stage” area … all in all it will improve things significantly.

Saturday I spent the day MC’ing the Artist and Activist tent at the 4th Annual NoCO Hemp Expo.  Dave Beegle was the featured guest soloist for a couple of singer songwriter / speakers, and he also performed himself.  To say he’s an exceptional guitarist is a cliche at this point in his career.  I was able to find out he’s almost done a new solo album, that’s more to his “world”  influences.  I should have a new track to share before too long .. maybe early May.

Sunday I made it over to the Colorado Blues Society IBC (Int’l Blues Challenge) Preliminaries in time to see the last two acts of the day, Fort Collins’ Rob Wilson Band and Maxwell Mud – who turned in a blistering set of electric blues rock and r&b, but did not manage to place for round 2.  Jack Hadley and Mojomama will be taking their sets to Round 2.  Fort Collins’ The Symbols took the “wild card” slot.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK


GOAT ON THE TOWN

Drove up to Fort Collins for this week’s trek to catch some bands in rooms I don’t get to visit very often.  First up was the Drunken Hearts at Hodi’s Halfnote. After that, I stopped by Island Grill, best known for the cover dance bands that frequent there, just in time to catch the Movers and Shakers last set of the night.

The Drunken Hearts at Hod’s Halfnote (Fort Collins)

The Drunken Hearts are an American trad-rock band with a dash of Colorado feel good jam.  Pedal steel player Cody Russell likes reminding me I said they are the hardest working band in Colorado on the show one week.  They are among the hardest working, that’s true.  Just look at their tour schedule.

Hanging out after their set, backstage with Cody, I bumped into Adam Brown from Mosey West, and recently the talent buyer for the Swing Station in LaPorte.  He let me know he and his wife are moving back to their home in Texas, but not before he finishes recording a new solo release.

The Island Grill is known in Fort Collins as a place that books cover bands, and caters primarily to the over 40 crowd.  I was not only surprised at how many people were there at midnight, but actually dancing and having a good time.

Part of that party atmosphere was a birthday party for band trumpet player Scott Sessions.  A major part of it was the stagecraft and showmanship of lead singer Andy Webber, who prowled the dance floor and teased and flirted the ladies like a young modern Tom Jones.

Musically, the band laid out a solid set of dance rhythm and blues from the sixties, classics that everyone could singalong to.  The dance floor was still packed when I left the room at 12:40.  That says a lot as many similarly programmed rooms in the region are empty by 11PM typically.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP10

Monday afternoon … still recovering from a weekend that took me to three rooms in three cities, and narrowly missing a drunk driver going northbound in the southbound lane of I25 on Saturday night.  He did not survive, I’m sorry to say.  Within minutes of me missing him, he was in an accident that shut down I25 at Loveland.

The big news this week is KRFC moving the Colorado Playlist from it’s long held 8PM slot on Saturday night to the 9PM slot on Friday nights … better to serve the live music crowd on a Friday.  The other big news is the signing of Brent Cowles to the same label that launched the Lumineers .. much love to Brent who said we might be able to score an exclusive on the new EP “Cold Times” coming in April.

Speaking of new releases – I’ll be debuting the new single from John Statz in next week’s show … produced by Megan Burtt.  Not the first time she’s sat behind the board directing the flow in the studio.

Tiffany Christopher scored another home-run in last week’s MMMM, not only reaping the most votes, but also a nearly perfect KEEP decision – seems to me that you just went “eh” at the rest of the selections.  Check out this week’s run of cuts below.


GOAT ON THE TOWN 3 NIGHTS 3 BANDS

This going out on the weekends is getting to be a good habit for this goat.  Not working isn’t necessarily the most financially positive thing I could be doing, but getting out from behind the sound board and getting out to some local rooms IS a good idea.

Gasoline Lollipops at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox (Denver)

Friday night I stopped by the Roost in Longmont to catch a bit of one of my newest Front Range favorites, Francis & the Wolf — the runner up in this year’s Oscar Blues / Bolder Boulder Battle of the Bands.  Much respect to the band that won, Francis and the Wolf is an American Trad-Rock band of the first order, resplendent in their Bruce Springsteen meets Tom Petty blue collar swagger.

Saturday night my band GOATZ! shared the evening at Avogadro’s Number (Fort Collins) with the Matt Skinner Trio featuring bassist Ben O’Connor (Halden Wofford & the Hi-Beams) and guitarist Michael O’Connor (no relation to Ben).  I’ve said many times that Matt Skinner is my favorite country male vocalist in the area.  Saturday night confirmed my belief.  Matt is as capable of echoing the legends of the past as he is able to stand next to some of today’s most recognized Americana-country up and comers.

I got up early on Sunday morning to meet my brunch date at Opelia’s Electric Soapbox in Denver and 4 hours of Gasoline Lollipops.   If there’s any doubt left that the “pops” are one of the region’s hottest up and coming bands, put them away – a packed house in Denver is all one needs to move from small room status to bigger rooms like the Bluebird or Gothic in Denver.  Along the way Stephen Brackett, aka Brer Rabbit from Flobots, stopped by for some lunch/brunch and hung out for a set.

Ophelia’s is Denver’s hot small restaurant / music venue right now.  Talent buyer Randall Frazier has kept some of the region’s top acts moving through there – including Big Head Todd & the Monsters for a NYE show. That says a lot about the room’s cred in the scene.  We sat in the lower level next to the mixing station – the sound was perfect – not too loud so that you couldn’t talk and enjoy a great meal.  The food there is outrageously good.

Happy to say GOATZ! and Gasoline Lollipops have two shows together this coming spring/summer season – staring with May 20 at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP09

Well, this week is a little different.  There are more videos in this week’s post than I think I’ve ever included before for one.  And more news to share with you.  News of my own to announce this week:  the Colorado Playlist is coming to 106.9 KHEN LPFM Salida.  I will know in a week or two what day and the it will air.  I am now also the new entertainment coordinator for the historic Bolder Boulder on Memorial Day, and a new 10k coming on Labor Day to Fort Collins called Fortitude.

So you set a CP MMMM record for most votes in a week, and the most votes for one song in a week for Tiffany Christopher‘s “Somewhere Behind the Sun.”

The week, I’ve featured another new track from Tiffany Christopher, along with something from new Colorado by way of Texas country artist Leslie Tom, reggae from Bonfire Dub, along with new cuts from former Pandas and People guitarist Grayson Erhard and deeper tracks from the new Otis Taylor and Gasoline Lollops releases.  Don’t forget to vote and SHARE (please, and thank you).


GOAT on the Town

As I’m taking some time off from being cooped up in a room every Friday and Saturday doing sound, I’ve been able to get out to check out some other rooms and bands.

mbs-dickensThis weekend I caught a set from 2 x Leftapalooza winners and #5 TOP TEN Tribute Bands in Colorado (Westword), My Blue Sky, at the Dicken’s Opera House in Longmont and the cover country and hard rock band Swerve at the Wild Game Longmont.

There’s a good reason why MBS is considered one of the TOP 5 tribute bands in Colorado – not the least of which are their flavorful and articulate recreations of the music of the Allman Bros Band family tree… including Gov’t Mule.

If I wasn’t doing a show of my own on March 11, I would easily be back at the Dicken’s to catch Great American Taxi.

The 300 capacity room is among the best under 500 cap rooms in the region, with a clean line of sight into a deeply set old stone and brick back wall, a reasonable amount of seating and a spacious “dance floor.”  I’m a bit of a sound and production snob, so I have to say the sound and lights are adequate.

I couldn’t stay for My Blue Sky‘s Gov’t Mule set as I set out to catch a set by Swerve at the new entertainment facility, the Wild Game Longmont.  If I thought that the Dicken’s sound was adequate, the Wild Game’s sound needs remedial attention.

The Wild Game is not a music venue.  It’s a family entertainment facility with a kids’ game room, eight bowling lanes, an adult gaming area and food, some of which appears more exotic than your typical bar grub.

Extreme boominess makes the room itself too loud, without a band playing.  Lack of a house sound system and engineer leaves the task up to the band to do from stage.  Expect unpredictability, especially since most bands today don’t pack pro level sound gear.

This is the second weekend in a row where I’ve gone out to see a cover rock band.  Swerve knows their audience – people who listen to the likes of KYGO and 103.5 The Fox in Denver .. and 99.1 KUAD and 107.9 The Bear in NoCO.  They played the hits… professionally and proudly.  They managed to mix their own pro-level small sound system exceedingly well given the overall loudness and boominess of the room.



May I Introduce to You:  

A couple of years ago I had lunch with a documentary film maker, Caryn Sanchez, who wanted to do a documentary on Colorado music.  You can keep up with developments at SoundsLikeColorado.com … Here’s a preview of what’s to come.


NEWS & NOTES

Congrats to one of Northern Colorado’s most popular bands, Patti Fiasco, for being selected to open for Bon Jovi at the Pepsi Center.  They were selected from ten finalists in our region by Bon Jovi management.  They will be appearing at the Pepsi Center on April 14.

And congrats to my buddy Tyler Grant and his band the Grant Farm for securing a slot supporting the String Cheese Incident at Red Rocks on July 23.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP08

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1Welcome to Monday.  LOL.  I’ve been plagued by a nagging thought for the past few years.  While I, and MOST of my friends, support original acts, I do not ever want to forget that the vast majority of those who pick up an instrument, or decide to sing, are NOT songwriters.

I went out this weekend to see what I could see at a couple of the suburban rooms that feature NON-ORIGINAL music (read:  cover bands).

In one case, the band was exceptional, and while performing reminded me deeply of seeing the original acts in their original settings in the 70s (Harlem, Apollo Theater, Philly etc).  In the other case, it was as I might expect – a bunch of veteran journeymen musicians going through the motions, but hardly inspiring the audience to get up and dance.  I’ve witnessed the same thing with purely original acts — some inspire, some don’t, but we do tend to favor them over those who do not write and arrange their own thoughts and feelings into song.

All that said, I began this journey nearly 11 years ago to celebrate Colorado musicians that record great works, whether they wrote those works or not… from the biggest hit-makers and award winners to the freshest new musical talent emerging from around the state.  And, subsequently, I launched the MMMM at the beginning of the year to give you a chance to weight in.

Last week, Petals of Spain was the overwhelming favorite with a 100% KEEP IT rating.  High Fiction grabbed the most votes, but did earn a couple of DELETE IT votes.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP07

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1Monday morning.  A recap.  Last week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) was among the most voted in I’ve seen this year so far.  Ginny Mules won big, including not only shear number of votes, but also in its 100% KEEP IT rating, when applied to the total number of votes received.  When fans rally, it’s an indication of fan favor = popularity = something we all strive for.  Popularity, I’ve learned is organic; it happens, or it doesn’t.

Despite the overall popularity of Flobots over the past decade, their new single “Pray” is off to a shaky start, barely managing to break a 50/50 KEEP IT or DELETE IT tie.  Their new album is due out this spring, but I should have more to share in advance in March.

Coming NEXT WEEK / EP08 … the DEBUT of the new Rose Hill Drive album Mania.  After years of speculation that the band had disbanded for good, the trio of two brothers and their best friend that began as children, reemerges not far removed from where they left off, with a guitar fueled, Led Zepplin influenced, hard rock groove sure to put them back at the top of the deck as one of the region’s most popular rock bands – exactly where they left off seven years ago now.    Expect sold out shows and plenty of outdoor festival appearances in 2017.

Also new NEXT WEEK / EP08 = Tiffany Christopher, Shady Elders, Otis Taylor, Deep Pocket Thieves and Bonfire Dub.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP06

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1Well, Colorado pretty much got shut out of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards last night. There was no Pretty Lights, no Lumineers, no Gerald Alright …all prior Grammy nominated acts …and no Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats.  I’m particularly surprised that the Lumineers did not get enough votes to earn a nomination for their album Cleopatra, that went #1 in both the US and Canada last year.

All that said, Denver’s Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) earned another Grammy for his part as a producer on the multiple Grammy winning  “25” by Adele.  Native Denverite Bill Frisell did earn a nomination for Best Instrumental album for Wish Upon A Star, and former Denver resident Rene Marie was nominated in the Best Vocal Jazz Category for her album Sound of Red.  Of course, my pick for album of the year for 2016 went to the Lumineers, for Cleopatra.

Last week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) was interesting.  Seems like we’ve locked in a pretty steady core group of readers who let me know what they like each week … Patrick Dethlef’s “I Was Your Age,” received a resounding “DELETE IT” vote, along with Spiral Cell‘s “Taste.”  Last week’s winners included the emotional “Sweat” from Michael Hornbuckle and what’s turned out to be a very well received release from the Steve Law Band, who have had two KEEP IT tracks voted on over the past two weeks.

This week’s MMMM includes shares from Dearling, Flobots, and Ginny Mules.  The new Flobots album is due out in May.
