CP S13 EP45 2019t

MONDAY NOV 18, 2019 –  this was a weekend to go out to some local shows …  Whippoorwill with Courtney Hartman, the Elephant Collective and friends, and Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene.  Read the review here.

I got a few messages this week from listeners who wanted to know how they could stream or download the show.  There’s no way to allow for a download, unfortunately, but you can stream the show.  105.5 The Colorado Sound archives two weeks worth of the program.

I’m still trying to get details, but a post over the weekend caught my attention – it has been rumored that Colorado legend and future Colorado Music Hall of Fame artist, Hazel Miller, has opened a restaurant / blues and jazz focused music venue in Parker called Blu Note Parker.

CP S13 EP34 2019

Monday September 2, 2019 – Well, it’s official.  Happy Labor Day.  Summer is over … in 18 days LOL.  Today is supposed to hit 100. I’m looking forward to cooler temperatures, and the rush of music about to hit my desk in time for BEST OF 2019 consideration.  

August was FANTASTIC!  Not only were all the festivals and live shows killer, but you crushed the stats for this site – best since 2015.  Thank you!

Already sitting on my desk waiting for some airtime, is the debut from band guru Mark Bleisner, former manager for Big Head Todd & the Monsters, and Lyle Lovett among others.  Mark celebrates his 70th birthday with the release called “Jurassic Mark” on which he plays drums (which he did long before becoming a band manager) and guitar and sings.  

Also on the way next week is the new album from the Samples called “Indian Summer.”  An initial quick first listen leads me to believe this is a very personal album for original founding member Sean Kelly.  Sean has dealt with lost marriage, a child caught in the middle, and a significant change in management.  It’s a personal album, that unlike the unevenness of his previous effort, America (2014), comes off sounding strong and self-assured.

MONDAY JUNE 24, 2019 – Rumors swirled over the weekend concerning former Yonder Mountain String Band founding member Jeff Austin.  Despite numerous social media posts alluding to a possible suicide, official reports emerged that he suffered a undisclosed medical emergency and was is Seattle with family being attended to.  What little information is available, and crowdfunding has been set up at Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

In this week’s show I highlighted some of the best of 2013 in  HOUR 1 and some of the best of 2014 in HOUR 2.  Over the next many weeks I will continue to highlight some of the best of each year as we approach the BEST OF THE DECADE.  With that, I’ve put up two polls already for Best of 2010 and 2011, so you can vote for your favorites from those years.

CP S13 EP24 2019

Monday June 17, 2019 – One of the most consistent issues I hear both musicians and patrons talk about are “empty rooms.”  As a former venue operator, and a life-long performing musician, I get it.  I play in rooms with only a handful of people present.  I’ve booked shows that only a handful of people have attended.  There is no one single answer that will solve this issue.

I’ve performed in support of world renown musicians to empty rooms …as in only ten people, and five of them were associated with the show.  This actually happened to me not long ago, where I played as the opener for an nationally recognized award winning singer-songwriter in front of ten people. I’ve also seen and performed in support of platinum selling bands that drew only a couple hundred people to the show.

Some venues are “concert” rooms – meaning the band is totally responsible for how many people attend – it’s essentially a popularity contest.  If you’re a new band, or an up and coming local band, chances are likely you won’t have many people in “your” audience, and you hope to draw from those who show up to see the headliner – which supposedly does have a local draw.

Some venues are established restaurant / bar / music rooms.  Some have a regular clientele. We all want to play those rooms. Some do not and therefore rely on the popularity of the band  -the band draw.  I’ve managed rooms like that, and performed at more than I can remember.  Sometimes there is a crowd to play to, and in some cases the draw is minimal or not there at all.

My father, who owned a jazz venue in the early 60s, also complained about this issue – both as the owner of a venue and as a professional working musician.  The issue is not new.  However, today the issue is exacerbated by there being many hundreds of places to play in our region, and several thousands of bands and solo acts wishing to perform publicly – both from our own region as well as those out touring.

SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC – It’s the lifeblood of our industry.

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.

CP S13 EP01 2019 – BEST OF 2018

Monday Dec 31, 2018 – HAPPY NEW YEAR.  I was so excited for this year’s BEST OF I jumped the gun a week in labeling the show.  I also got confused.  The show originated in 2006, making 2019 the 14th season of the show.  So I’m a year behind that way. This is what you get when you’re “old.”  CRS syndrome. Oh well.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Colllins), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KHEN (Salida), KZYR (Vail), and KJAC (Greeley) for airing the Colorado Playlist.  Because of them, the show is heard on 24FM frequencies around the state, 52 hours a week.  There’s a “letter of intent” for another mountain town station to pick up the show before April.

Below you’ll find the playlist for The Best of 2018.  Twenty-five titles made the cut, counting the overall TOP 10 and the TOP 10 Fan/Listener Poll selections and TOP 5 Fan/Listener Videos of 2018 selections.   It was an amazing year.  Follow the links to see this year’s rankings and to listen to the LP/EP.
