CP S12 EP43 2018

 Monday Nov 12, 2018


As we approach the midway point of November, it seems that site traffic has hit a hard roadblock of sorts. I hope you’ll remember to stop by and check out the new music in the MMMM and vote to KEEP or DELETE.

As this is the time of the year to give thanks – I cannot give enough to the stations and listeners who make this show possible.  I would love to meet you … and with that I’ll be appearing with my long time musical partner Chris Jackowski and local teenage fiddle phenom Jackson Earles at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins on NOV 17, and with my full electric band lineup at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on NOV 24.  I hope you can come by so I can thank you in person for your support.

NEW this week YouTube Colorado Playlist of all the tracks from this week’s episode .. which includes new MMMM tracks from Foxfeather, AMZYKing Eddie, AMZY, Kid Reverie, Joe Johnson, and Tnertle.

Make sure you follow me on Spotify to find out what new artists I might be checking out.  This week’s Spotify playlist is short some fine tracks from SUCH, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Zephyr and Alpha Centauri

I found all of this week’s tracks on YouTube – the first CP YouTube weekly playlists.  Pls let me know what you think.

At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


Speaking of Zephyr — very very happy that they along with original lead guitarist Tommy Bolin will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2019.

Also being inducted is the truly legendary Freddie-Henchi Band.  Both Zephyr and the Freddi-Henchi Band were signed early on their careers in the late 60s, but wound up being more regionally famous as time went on;   Zephyr until Candy’s death in 1984, and the FHB until the mid to late 80s when various life issues (drugs, booze, etc) decimated the band.

FHB would re-emerge in the mid 90s for a brief run.  Freddi “Love” Gowdy appears with Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy today.

Chris Daniels & The Kings 30th Anniversary Tour Kickoff – March 2014!

March 1984 Chris Daniels & The Kings played their first three shows at the Blue Note, Little Bear and Herman’s Hideaway. To kick off their 30th year the Kings will repeat that trifecta with three shows at Nissi’s … The Little Bear … Herman’s Hideaway! 

March 1, 2014 – Nissi’s in Lafayette Colorado – show starts at 8pm

March 8, 2014 – The Little Bear, Evergreen – show starts at 9:15pm

March 21, 2014 – Herman’s Hideaway – show starts at 10:30pm

DENVER, CO (February 20, 2014) – Last year was a good year for Chris Daniels with a Grammy Award nomination for his songwriting and as a guest soloist with Al Jarreau in the Best Children’s Album Category for Jumpin’ Jazz Kids, and he was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in November with Judy Collins. But that was then and in 2014 Daniels and his band mates are celebrating their 30th Anniversary with a trifecta of shows in the towns where they began the journey. They also plan on a new release this summer with soul man Fred Gowdy!

“Our first gig was at the Blue Note in Boulder (now gone) and then we played at the Little Bear and then Allan (Roth) gave us a shot at Herman’s. I thought it would be great to kick off the spring and summer season of touring with shows in the three places that got us started.” – Chris Daniels

What was supposed to be a one-night-stand at the Blue Note in Boulder quickly led to the Little Bear offering the band a gig and then Herman’s followed up. Thirty (30) years later Chris and the Kings have racked up some serious mileage and achieved a remarkable list of accomplishments few bands from the area can match.

The list includes: 15 albums, 20 European tours, records that charted on the Triple A, AC and European charts, appearances on VH-1, Nashville Now, The Altitude Network, HD Net, Onhe Filter and French MTV and countless shows with artists that included BB King, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, The Neville Brothers. Along with various awards they’ve appeared at major festivals across Europe including Park Pop where the estimated attendance was 450,000 and almost 10 years as the closingFriday night headliner at the Telluride Festival.

“I think we’ve done more shows than the Rolling Stones! I sat down and estimated that we have averaged more than 100 shows per year, some years as many as 320 – for the past 30 years. That’s well over 4,000 shows – 12,000 sets. And we are still kicking ass and taking names!” – Chris Daniels

CD & The Kings are not sitting back. This year they are joined by veteran funk-master Fred Gowdy (The Freddi Henchi Band) for a new album due out this summer and Freddi will be touring with the band through the States and Europe all this year. “You are only as good as your next project” Daniels quipped, “And this next one is going to be so sweet with Freddi in the mix.”
