CP S15 EP11 2021

March 15 2021 –SNOW DAY! YAY!  Yeah no, LOL.  But it’s still a snow day.  Stay warm and safe.  It’s a great chance to hunker down and listen to a batch of new music that hit my desk this past week.

Starting off – Gasoline Lollipops reenters the TOP 5 this week, jumping up into the #3 position, with  Nathaniel Rateliff staying at #1 and award winner A.J. Fullerton maintaining his hold on #2.

One release coming out later this month is from Hunter James & the Titanic.  The band is releasing a series of 3 EPs, culminating in an album over the spring and summer.

The first ep release is called “Tight-Walkin’ Man.”  It is coming out March 26th and is a release ready for the band to tour behind as things open up this summer and fall.

Partially mixed and mastered by Danny Reisch and company at Good Danny’s in Texas, the sonic quality is as professional as it can be; meaning they’re serious enough to make that kind of investment to begin with.

In an era where the return on that investment comes from shows and we don’t know what this year’s show season looks like yet, going to one of the nation’s top production studios is huge.

CP S15 EP10 2021

March 08 2021 – Colorado legends top the spins this week as Nathaniel Rateliff stays at #1 and Five Iron Frenzy continues their hold on the #3 position. Award winner A.J. Fullerton, named as one of the “Top 75 Blues Artists You Must Hear in 2021” by Rock and Blues Muse, DEBUTs at #2 this week.  Check it out below.

More and more news is coming out about this summer’s concert season. Breaking within minutes of posting up this morning, Gavin Dahl at KVNF (Paonia) is reporting that Telluride Bluegrass Festival will go ahead but with restrictions on attendance (2500 vs normal 12,000) and spread out over multiple weekends with no night shows and no vendors.  Talks are progressing with the town and there is no word on camping.

Hudson Gardens has announced that their summer series will be canceled for another year “…because of the strong likelihood of ongoing capacity restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”   Their post goes on to say, “We will soon announce a partnership with another local cultural organization, so the Concert Amphitheater won’t be quiet for long.”

I got word over the weekend from reliable sources that AEG exec Don Strasburg has suggested we’ll be back to normal by late July or early August.  No one knows for SURE what the summer will actually look like, but when I posed the Strasburg rumor to Levitt Pavilion executive Chris Zacher, he said “we all will be” (back to business this summer).  #eternaloptimist #fingerscrossed
