Rendezvous Park – Winter Park – Sat Aug 13 2022

AUG 15 2022 – It was a fun and fulfilling day in the rain in Winter Park on Saturday. I mc’d the Stellas Gives Back to Grand County Search and Rescue benefit. The show featured Tara Rose, Andy Sydow and Slopeside. It poured for most of the event. The only act able to complete a full set was Andy Sydow and his band.

Other than Tara Rose, I’ve known members of Slopeside for over twenty years, and Andy Sydow for eight or nine. If nothing else, it was really great getting reacquainted and caught up on life and music.

Not a lot of people showed up, given the weather conditions. Those who did huddle under whatever rain protection there was were treated to some major league Colorado musician perseverance. All who took the stage showed the scant audience the range and quality of what our scene is all about. Much love to everyone! It really was a special kinda day. I was really honored to be a part of it.

Last Call Romance – 14th Annual Dacono Music & Spirits Festival Aug 6, 2022

AUG 08 2022 – New entries in this week’s TOP 5 from Elektric Animals, Kunckle Pups and Violet Pilot + NEW music in this week’s MMMM from Jen Korte & the Loss, Cass Clayton, King Cardinal and Lucy Daydream.

WOW! Some of you know I’ve been the entertainment director for the Dacono (Carbon Valley) Music & Spirits Festival since 2008. This year was more than we could have imagined. In fourteen years of doing this show (less the COVID era), no direct support band ever received a call back for an encore. Last minute replacement for Chris Daniels & the Kings, Last Call Romance, is the first as they ripped a seventy-five minute set of Americana based blues, country and rock-and-roll ala 1960.. Watch for them near you. They’ll be appearing in OCT as part of the Poudre Pour in Windsor.

CP S16 EP27 2022 – GRAND JUNCTION

View from Colorado National Monument looking north towards Grand Junction and Fruita

AUG 01 2022 – WOW! You all blew the monthly view count out of the park! Thank you for visiting. I’ll get the JULY monthly spins up in a day or two. In the meantime, check out the new music and videos in this week’s MMMM from Twenty Hands High, Dayton Stone & the Undertones, Violet Pilot and Dzirae Gold.

We finally got to visit Colorado Playlist sponsor Starr’s Guitars in Cedaredge! If you’re looking for some nice wood, this is the place. Yeah, they send, but they’d rather you stop by the store. I sat and picked on a few beautiful Larrivee guitars – my favorite since I own two. It was great to meet store manager Candace. Sadly, David Starr wasn’t home this trip. Next time my friend!

Speaking of visiting Cedaredge – we spent a few days in Grand Junction this past week. We went to a show at the Avalon Theater. This is one of the nicest sit-down venues in our state. At just under 1100 seats, the recently renovated state-of-the art theater features comfortable seating, exquisite line of sight, sound and lighting, all experienced while sitting near the back of the orchestra section.

Local blues legend Bobby Walker has opened there for several national stars many times over the years. David Starr will be supporting the classic yacht rock band America coming up on Aug 20.

Another Grand Junction venue worth visiting is the Mesa Theater, about a two minute walk down the block from the Avalon on Main Street. There was a poster up featuring the Tejon Street Corner Thieves from Colorado Springs who recently appeared there. InTheWhale is there on AUG 27.

If you’re partying on Main Street in Grand Junction, there are several very nice restaurants to enjoy. We ate at the Winery, a long standing fine dining restaurant in a “…90 year old building that used to house a horse drawn carriage fire station.” Buyer beware, this is not a budget friendly restaurant.

There’s also the French inspired LeRouge! We enjoyed one of the nicest charcuteries we’ve had anyplace, before the concert. They and the Winery have wonderful wine lists, as you’d expect of the region. And then there’s the British Isles themed Goat and Clover Tavern. You KNOW we ate there! Every picture in the place has a goat in it. Hmmmmm.

The British / Irish Pub inspired menu features bangers and mash as well as corned beef and cabbage …and somehow or other the owners are connected to Elijah Craig bourbon distillers.

I will be returning to Grand Junction to emcee KAFM‘s Annual Radio Daze Music Fest and Fundraiser on Sept 10.

Don’t overlook Grand Junction! Also, the wineries in the area are big supporters of Colorado based acoustic music.
