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.

CP S12 EP26 2018

June, July and August are the three HOTTEST months – musically.  There are more outdoor events – ticketed and free – in our region today than is even possible to chronicle, let alone attend.

Saturday night my girlfriend and I attended a sold out Mishawaka show – Trout Steak Revival with Gasoline Lollipops and Canyon Collected.  It was the last possible Saturday night I had available this summer to get to the Mishawaka for a show, and the overall experience did not disappoint.  A special surprise that night was the acoustic version of Gasoline Lollipops – the first for the band.

It was pretty evident that the sold out audience was there for the two jamgrass bands.  The Gas Pops met reserved appreciation from a polite audience until they revved up the tempos, allowing Don to demonstrate his formidable lead guitar skills and Clay to demonstrate his ability to own any audience I’ve ever seen him in front of.

By the end of the set, with Clay raging vocally, the audience was sold.  When the band came back on for a quick set of pics by the house photog, the audience thought maybe they were getting an encore …

Lead guitarist Don Ambory broke out a mandolin, the first time I’ve seen that happen – and he played his 1940’s Gibson acoustic for the Gas Pops set.  He also sat in on three songs with Trout Steak, and played electric guitar – his solos in the Trout Steak set were fan favorites as were the ukulele solos taken by Canyon Collected’s Tia Martini. 

Some of us standing in the “VIP” viewing area commented on the presence of the ukulele in the lineup until Tia demonstrably shredded every jam in the band’s 45 minute crowd pleasing set.

Because of the hour forty minute drive home to the Denver metro we didn’t stay for the entire set by Trout Steak Revival, but based on the overall feel of the night, and the thunderous applause during the first half of their set, I have no doubt that the show didn’t end by midnight.  Trout Steak does stand out as one of the best acoustic jamgrass Americana-folk bands in the region today.


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

Last week I posted the The Best of 2018 So Far.  Beyond the top 5 albums posted, there are some others that stand up well as we’re now beyond mid point of the year.  The new album by Brent Cowles on Dine Alone Records, as well as Covenhoven’s A Kind of Revelation are going to be strong contenders by mid-December when the best of lists for the year come out around the region.


What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen  and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.
