VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Bands do not often rise to popularity or acclaim without some level of tribulation.  Beginning with the departure of the band’s guitarist in 2015 and the death of drummer Luke Mehrens’ fiance the same year, the trio has been pretty much hell bent on succeeding on their own terms.  The SIR Band’s new album, “So Cold,” comes out Dec 8th.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP17

Craziness … I’m late this week.  Big news this past week is the reemergence of the Colorado Playlist Live365 supported by the Mishawaka Amphitheater and Oskar Blues Brewery.. thanks to them for their support, and to Live365 for bringing the platform back online.  I hope you’ll visit once a day to check out what’s new.

Spent Friday and Saturday at the Big Wonderful and got to hang out with some great friends including, Drew Emmitt, Andy Thorn and Greg Garrison from Leftover Salmon along with Tyler Grant (Grant Farm), Jordan Ramsey, Eric Thorin (Matt Flinner Trio), Adam Kinghorn (Head for the Hills) along with up coming bluegrass bands Caribou Mountain Collective and That Damn Sasquatch — all in all a brilliant (and brilliantly hot and dusty) Friday and Saturday.

Randall Dubis & Dan Treanor at Oskar Blues 20th Anniversary

Sunday I was SUPPOSED to attend the Colorado Blues Society IBC (International Blues Challenge Memphis) finals at the Dickens Opera House in Longmont … AND the final day of the Oskar Blues 20th Anniversary at the Original Grill and Brew in Lyons … okay .. I tried.  I made it to Lyons for an hour before I fell ill and had to jet home, where I promptly fell asleep for 14 straight hours.

Congratulations to Mojomama for winning this year’s IBC!  WTG!

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 S10 EP37 OCT 2016

Happy Monday.  With the political world in turmoil, and rookie QB Paxton Lynch taking a tumble, or two … or six … let’s turn our attention to this week’s new music on the Colorado Playlist.

One big change this week.  I’ve changed how the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) works.  See below.  I think it will give us a better indication of which songs you think we should KEEP or NOT KEEP in the Playlist.

Thanks to Grim&Darling for the radio premiere of their new single Rather Not, which is also the Video Pick of the Week.

adoption-dreams-2016-invitation-1-page-001-copy_orig

I realize this has nothing to do with music or musicians here in Colorado (other than GOATZ! playing this event), but this is an important organization in my life.

Last winter, during Mrs Goat’s final days, I promised that her (our) daughter would always have a forever Dad.  Our daughter was 40 years old at the time of the adoption — and adopting an adult child of that age is not something that you see every day, by the admission of the judge who finalized the adoption.

Adoption Dreams executive director Cindy Sarai and her staff came to the rescue and expedited our adoption, which was completed four days before my wife passed away.  I’m honored to have been asked to be the Master of Ceremonies at this year’s fundraiser.  I hope to see many friends at this event.  Click on picture for more details.

I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.

It’s not a competition.  It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP36 OCT 2016

Sometimes a song hits me hard.  Mawule‘s “Black is Beautiful” came to me via email a few weeks ago, and I had to wait to air it – although I listened to it numerous times in my own time and space.  Born Ebenezer Yebuah, Mawule, was born and raised in Accra, Ghana. He and his family moved to Denver when he was 10 years old and he’s remained here ever since.

While other Denver hip-hop artists are receiving more praise, and getting signed to bigger, more nationally recognized labels, Mawule’s Black is Beautiful stands out among all the hip-hop tracks I normally receive.

Other than one other cut, from The Longest Day of the Year, “Black is Beautiful” is the only other song in this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  The other acts did not have shareable embeds for their new cuts.

bobby-walker#cancersucks Colorado legacy bluesman Bobby Walker is the latest in a run of brothers and sisters in the scene the past couple of years who have been diagnosed with and is undergoing treatment for cancer.  In Bobby’s case, it’s throat cancer.  Bobby is good about posting updates at his FB pg.

Props to the International Blues Society for being there to help out with a major contribution.  More than $11,000 has been raised via GoFundMe to offset the costs that Bobby is facing as he deals with everything.  We’ve lost a couple of our friends to cancer the past year – and a couple have had successful treatments.  I’m hoping we get many more years of Mr. Walker’s wonderful voice.  Much love my friend.

Colorado Playlist – S10 EP22 June 2016

As July approaches, I am getting increasingly excited for what’s on the way.  Here’s a great list of local/regional festivals – some of which feature Colorado talent significantly.  Looking forward particularly to Bohemian Nights at New West Fest in August – the first time in 12 years it’s been ALL Colorado.  YAY!  <goat jig>.

This column is late today because I just spent 90 minutes on the phone being interviewed for an upcoming Denver Post article … looking fwd to that .. coming I believe in the first week of July .. be on the watch for that.

New music this week is from previously debuted albums by Joseph Tonelli,  Bonnie & the Clydes, Pete Pidgeon and Arcoda, and the Motet. 

Coming soon, new music from Durango’s Cannondolls, Magic Music (formed in the early 70s and just now getting around to an album), the Rifters out of Alamosa and northern NM, and Dechen Hawk’s Jus’ Sayin’ .


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Chris Daniels is among our more valued musical treasures.  Here he is in an episode of eTown – another jewel in our musical landscape.  “Eldorado Canyon” is where the band Magic Music lived in the early ’70s, in an ice cream truck and a school bus.  Coming soon – the first ever Magic Music album — 40 years in the making.


SUPPORT PROVIDED BY

As much as I would hope that support comes easily it does not – anymore so than for anyone else in music.  I am deeply thankful to the Mishawaka Amphitheater for sponsoring this program – and to you for dropping a few bucks in the tip jar on occasion.  Thank you.  FUND ME.

If you’re a Colorado business engaged in music, music related activities, hemp, or other earth friendly products message me for information about how you can support this program.

News broke late last week, before the show posted, that Elephant Revival lost their tour bus and with that, their equipment and personal belongings.  At 9:00 on Friday morning, the band posted:

Greetings friends…. We are writing to let you all know that we are safe and sound this morning. An electrical fire ignited in the back of the bunk room. Luckily, we were already parked at the venue in North Carolina. It all happened very quickly, while some of us were sleeping and some of us were waking. A chorus of voices yelled smoke, as the initial flames encroached upon Daniel’s feet in the back lower bunk. Within two minutes, black smoke billowed through the windows as the interior of the bus went up in flames.

We are so appreciative for this life, our family and friends, and each other. Thank you to the Red Cross, the fire department and the good people of Hickory. We’ve lost much in terms of material possessions and instruments of the trade, yet we remain grateful.

Much love to our friends in E.R.  .. there’s a gofundme page set up to help defray the cost of rebuilding.

Our Monday Morning Music Meeting this week has newcomers Brother Wild “Leave It All Behind” — A wonderful new song dedicated to the world’s #1 rock and roll cancer charity, Love Hope Strength – appropriated titled by Dave Tamkin — Colorado legendary indie pop act Dressy Bessy — and national up and comers Edison who have a new album due out this summer “Civil War”  


SUPPORT PROVIDED BY

As much as I would hope that support comes easily it does not – anymore so than for anyone else in music.  I am deeply thankful to the Mishawaka Amphitheater for sponsoring this program – and to you for dropping a few bucks in the tip jar on occasion.  Thank you.  FUND ME.

If you’re a Colorado business engaged in music, music related activities, hemp, or other earth friendly products message me for information about how you can support this program.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

The new cut from Gregory Alan Isakov officially came out in May .. but I’m only now getting to share the official video with you.  As usual, it’s a stunning performance.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen to them again (or for the first time) and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist.

I conceived of this idea a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

NOTE:  In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.
