NEWS, NOTES AND MUSIC

I think I got lost this past week.  Really.  I did get a lot of new music in my inbox – including new releases from Patrick Dune, Tennis, Katie Herzig, Pandas & People, and more … much love to Shilo Gold, whose music I recall playing a few years ago before she moved to Los Angeles, and who recently completed a self-funded tour of Europe.  Her live performance video from the Voice is below.

POLLS – thanks for participating.  I’m trying to get a sense of who we are here — and I can say we’re largely over 45, and like going out to see live music.  Here’s the next on.  I want to know your buying habits.


 IN COLORADO MUSIC HISTORY 

Many famous (and not so famous) acts have come to Colorado over the decades to get away from the hustle and bustle of LA or NYC.  Among those are acts like the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Eagles, which is undoubtedly the most famous of all such acts.

 VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Chris Daniels and the Kings just released their 15th album, Blues with Horns Vol. 1, which once again features Freddi “Love” Gowdy (Freddi Henchi Band).



MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen  and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP37

So much going on.  I took some much needed vacation time last week, and visited Durango/Mesa Verde with my girlfriend.  While there we attended the 3rd annual iammusicfest which also hosted the Colorado Music Summit put on by the Music District and Colorado Creative Industries.

Much love to the incredible musicians who took part, including Foxfeather, Chimney Choir, Euforquestra, Hello Dollface, Paa Kow and others.

“…musicians work several jobs to make ends meet. If we can help them increase their quality of life, that’s a good thing for everybody.”— Margaret Hunt, CCI

ROCKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC RELIEF mobilizes the Colorado music and media communities to raise funds to assist musicians throughout the U.S. affected by natural disasters.

That statement from Margaret at Colorado Creative Industries carries considerable meaning for me, and is very much a part of the underlying mission of Rocky Mountain Music Relief.

Since launching, following the hurricane that affected Houston, and from which our mission originated, many legacy Colorado musicians and venues have contributed to the cause, with much more to come.

If you’d like to contribute to helping professional working musicians affected by natural disasters in the US, US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico please reach out via the website.

Many of our friends do not know about VuHaus, and the efforts that they and a handful of Colorado radio stations have made to elevate Colorado music to an international audience.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP26

Chris J & Chris K – 2 GOATZ! – Wellington Main Street Concert – July 15 2017

What a weekend.  GOATZ! played 3 shows in 3 days .. AND the Colorado Playlist is back on the airwaves at 94.3FM in Summit County!

Saturday, GOATZ! was part of the Wellington Main Street Concert Series with Grateful Dead tribute band Switchman Sleepin’.  A magnificent evening with a cool breeze and about 500 people enjoying themselves in small town Colorado park – complete with local vendors and local beer.  Doesn’t get much more American … or Colorado … than that.

Sunday we spent the day in Fort Collins as part of Walrus Ice Cream 30th Anniversary – a Benefit for Adoption Dreams Come True, an organization I’m deeply indebted to for helping me adopt my oldest daughter Shannon. Thanks to Channel 7 News Anchor Shannon Ogden for swinging by for a 30 minute set of his own music … dude’s got skillz folks.

Most people who follow the Colorado Playlist are mostly familiar with my on-air work over 39 years in NoCO, and not in my role as leader of GOATZ!  In fact, the upcoming 11th Anniversary party also marks my 39th year in Colorado radio.  I started out at 1310AM KFKA and 96.1FM KFKZ in Greeley, 39 years ago, before moving onto 99.1FM KUAD (Quad 99 – the Power Station)

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP23

New music this week for you to vote on from Billy Shaddox, Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene, The Fremonts, Ryan Countryman, and Zach Heckendorf. 

I had the pleasure of hosting the first of three Wellington Mainstreet Summer Concert shows I am responsible for booking this summer.  Matt Skinner Band and My Blue Sky proved to be the perfect fits for the inaugural event funded by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs Mainstreet Program, the Bohemian Foundation, and local businesses .

The next one is July 15 with Grateful Dead tribute band Switchman Sleeping, and my band Goatz!

My Blue Sky will be the headliner at our Annual Colorado Playlist Anniversary show at the “Mish” in August.

If you’re in NoCO this week I’ll be hosting Dressy Bessy at the Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live show in Old Town Square Fort Collins.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP22

It’s summer.  I’m busy – either playing or emceeing or stage managing or attending an event.  Last Thursday I hosted the Blue Canyon Boys as part of Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live in Old Town Fort Collins — this Thursday I have one of my favorite family bands in the state – The Reminders, out of Colorado Springs.  Their brand of hip-hop is some of the most exciting around today, and I’m stoked to be hosting for them.

Don’t forget to let me know whether to KEEP or DELETE new music from this week’s PLAYLIST.  It’s up to you what I ultimately play on the show.  So let me know.

I did receive new music this weekend from Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene that I’ll be adding this week along with something new from Billy Shaddox

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP21



SUMMER is officially in full swing, which of course means I’m busier than all get out.  And so are you LOL.  Last Thursday I hosted the first Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live Series in Old Town Square Fort Collins, with SHEL.  It’s one of the most ideal settings in Northern Colorado, and over 1000 enthusiastic fans were out in force to support the girls.

This week I get the pleasure of hosting my friends in the Blue Canyon Boys on the Old Town Square stage.

Saturday I hosted the Poudre River Fest for the second time in a row – the lineup was great with the Patti Fiasco and Gasoline Lollipops anchoring the top of the bill.

SHEL at Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live

SUNDAY was a somewhat special day … I attended my first CHUN People’s Fair in 4 years, when I retired as main stage manager, official emcee and as a member of the PF steering committee.

CHUN no longer produces the event.  It’s also considerably scaled down from years past.  When I first became involved with PF at the turn of the century, over 120 acts performed on five stages.  Today, only a couple dozen acts appear on two stages – and for the first time, national level acts made their way onto the main stage.  All things considered the smaller event came off extremely well – and the weather for once was not an impediment for folks to come out for the weekend.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP14

New music shares this week from Debajo del Agua, Analog Son (f. Ivan Neville), Natalie Tate, and Ryan Chrys & the Roughcuts.  I also played a new cut from Wolf van Elfmand, but there was no embed available to share.  Ditto Rose Hill Drive who I had hoped to share also this week.

Look for new releases next week from Andy Palmer and Head for the Hills among others.

SHOW NEWS = 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins moved the show to Saturdays from 4PM to 6PM.

GOAT ON THE TOWN

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

Look into any nook and cranny today and you can find live music.  This is especially true of brew pubs, where on just about any night of the week you can find an amazing array of local talent – generally of the singer-songwriter variety, and mostly in country, bluegrass, and folk styles — and mostly acoustic, although there are certainly exceptions to all those things.

The Prairie Scholars – CHUBurger Longmont – April 14

I stopped by Oscar Blues CHUBurger in Longmont Friday evening for a burger and a beer and caught up with friends Jessica and Andy Eppler, aka the Prairie Scholars… one of, if not the top duo playing Longmont right now… holding court every Tuesday night at SKEYE Brewing‘s open mic night.  SKEYE Brewing also hosts music every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 9.  See their schedule online for details about the acts playing there.

Echo Brewing in Frederick does not offer live music regularly, according to the staff.  I stopped by there Saturday afternoon to see a friend and have a couple of pints.  Echo was celebrating their 5th Anniversary, and as a special event treat they had local garage rock cover band Cat Jerky playing.  It was a perfect afternoon to have a killer Kolsch and enjoy some classic rock and country.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK 

I first became aware of, and a fan of Debajo del Agua in 2007, when they released Arte-Santo.  Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with them on some shows around the region. Then, following their 2008 release The World Upside Down, the band inexplicably dropped off my radar.  I’m happy to say, they have a new album out for 2017 – with a renewed vision and expanded sound.

From their website bio:  Debajo del Agua has been a pillar of the artivist musical community for over a decade. While their musical style is not easily categorized or defined, it is focused on fusing hip hop with the melodies of Andean music, samba, son, salsa, cumbia, reggae, and reggaeton, creating a flavorful blend of melodies, spiced up with a style of its own. The members of Debajo del Agua span the Americas coming from Chile, Peru, El Salvador, Mexico, and the United States.
