The Colorado Sound S9 EP31 2015 – SPECIAL ED. BOHEMIAN NIGHTS @ NWF

It’s Tuesday … I lost a day I think.  I know I was at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre on Sunday with my son’s band and Chris Daniels & the Kings 11224102_10205836700008943_4417704871125413582_nand the Hazel Miller Band.  Yesterday I spent what seems like the entire day in my car on I25 – Longmont to the DTC to Fort Collins … so yeah, I guess I lost a day, huh?  Can’t seem to recall what I did on Saturday either.

Here’s what we looked like on stage

Bohemian Nights @ New West Fest Day 2

Chris K w short hair post BoNi 2014It’s Tuesday.  The weekend is done.  I’m slowly recovering.  Takes longer to recover now it seems.

Yes, I cut my hair.  Sorry to say the drugs I took to cure the hepatitis pretty much destroyed my hair.  I also took the advice of a friend (hey Rob) … LOL … my wife hates it … my kids and many of my friends on FB love it.  It feels healthy to me.  I’m all good.

Love this shot captured by the Coloradoan …. long live the hair.

Goat Introducing Big Head Todd & the Monsters

Here’s the video recap of day two … sorry I was unable to capture useable video of the ReMinders .. .:(

Bohemian Nights @ New West Fest – Day One

Day one is in the books.  great to hang with some great folks yesterday at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest.  Joe Johnson (playing today), Jeremy Lawton, Nick Duarte, Alysia Kraft, Ansel Foxley, Patti Fiasco, Post Paradise, Big Head Todd and the Monsters …. damn what a fun time … Record crowds for Big Head Todd & the Monsters.  The main venue shut off at just shy of 7000, and the secondary simulcast venues were at near capacity as well, with another several thousand left to wonder around, enjoying the music from “outside” the room.  Here’s a taste of the main stage action from Friday … Full slate today … cya at the show.



subdudes to appear in Colorado despite death of original member

A successful reunion show this past March rekindled a fire that hadn’t been present since the mid 90s, when Coloradans John Magnie and Steve Amedee rejoined Tommy Malone and Johnny Ray Allen, as the original founding members of the subdudes.  This weekend, fans where heartbroken to learn that Johnny Ray Allen passed away on Friday morning at his home in New Orleans.  No cause of death was listed.   An autopsy was scheduled for Monday, August 11.

I spoke with John Magnie Monday night and he confirmed that the remaining members of the band will perform at upcoming shows in Colorado, including Bohemian Nights at New West Fest.  Former tour manager and bassist/vocalist Tim Cook will rejoin the band for their in-state appearances.  Only their scheduled Thursday night appearance in Fruita was canceled.

S8|EP29 JULY 2014 + OSBTM EP1|PT2

Goat_Logo_color_on_whiteOk.  I. Am. Brain-dead.  Gonna be a very crazy week – and I just got done a crazy week.  So, DPUMS 2014 is done.  Video from the acts that I did sound for at the South Broadway Christian Church on my youtube channel.

On to the next weekend.  Emcee Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live with Manabi on Thursday in Fort Collins.  Friday and Saturday The Colorado Sound Presents The Samples & the Matt Skinner Band on Friday night and then a full day of music on Saturday with the Richie Furay Band and more as part of the 7th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival in Dacono.  Very much looking forward to hosting the Richie Furay Band Saturday night.  That’s like a dream come true for this goat.  …

Guess what’s NOT happening this month?  The TOP 40 spins chart for July spins.  Not gonna happen – sorry.  At least not until after all this craziness subsides (maybe next week?).  I do have to say how much of an honor it was last week to have so many people walk up to me around the region and say they heard the show on KUNC.  Thanks you guys!

The Colorado Sound is supported by contributions, and by the generous support of our sponsors – Colorado Case Company, The Mishawaka Amphitheatre and by SpokesBUZZ – pls visit their sites to see what’s up.  I’ll be on hand at the Mish on SPT 6 to present The Motet, whose latest self titled album has been among the most popular this year so far.

EP1|PT2 with Chris Daniels

Taking two hours of conversation and finding a couple of 15-20 minute segments was a lot harder than I originally envisioned.  PT1 and PT2 are available on the OSBTM page.  Here’s PT2 for you to download.  Make sure to grab the Soundcloud app so you can listen on your smartphone or in the car when you’re out and about.


Katie Herzig is returning home to Fort Collins to open for Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo for this year’s Bohemian Nights at New West Fest.
