Monday NOV 22, 2021 – Happy Thanksgiving (yeah, I’m a few days early). Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Personally, I’m thankful for my incredible partner in life, my children, COLORADO music and radio, and YOU! Thank you for listening to the show and reading the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM).

BIG changes in the TOP 5 weekly spins this week. Yes, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and the Lumineers are still dominant; while the Velveteers dropped down to #10, replaced by LOS MOCOCHETES, with Colorado jamband MAGIC BEANS filling in the #5 position this week.

I don’t usually debut (D) a release that is over a year old, but the album “The Offering” from Southern Colorado Americana country-folk singer-songwriter Xanthe Alexis struck a nerve with me this past couple of weeks and I wanted to share it. The album was originally released in August 2020 to tremendous praise from Americana reviewers around the country and for good reason. Check out the single The Offering below. Let me know what you think.

CP S14 EP19 2020

Monday May 18, 2020 – WHEW … I can’t get my head around a summer with no live music events.  Every day brings more announcements of cancellations and venue closures from around the state.  Summer is a time when most bands get to play to new audiences, and new audiences get to experience new bands and old favorites.

Typically, recorded music is instrumental in getting people excited to see their favorite acts perform live at summer municipal events.  Performance revenue along with merch sales provides most of the money a band uses to record new music. Which leads me to wonder how much new music will be recorded this year.

The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce announced the cancellation of Jazz Festival, Solshine, Winter Park Uncorked, High Note Thursdays, Fitness in the Park, the Run for Independence, the 4th of July celebration, the Switchback concert and Tequila and Tacos.

The City of Dacono announced the cancellation of the 13th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival for 2020.

Last week I reported on the closing of Live at Jacks in downtown Denver.  On Friday May 15, 3 Kings Tavern on South Broadway in Denver announced it was closing permanently, unable to pay the rent after a solid 14 year run.  Announcing the closure on Instagram, the owners posted “The spirit of Kings will never die.”


At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music. Bohemian Foundation’s NoCo Music Relief Fund provides assistance for individuals in the Northern Colorado Music Community who are severely financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rocky Mountain Music Relief Inc –  provides financial and in-kind support to those individuals, groups and organizations within our Colorado music industry that have been impacted physically, financially and/or emotionally due to the occurrence of natural disasters or unforeseen tragedies within their communities.
