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.”

CP S14 EP18 2020

Monday May 11, 2020 – I wake up every Monday morning and sit at the kitchen table to write this post.  I look out at a trio of unfinished homes from my window. I haven’t seen a single crew for weeks. And I wonder when those houses will be finished, when they’ll be sold and when I’ll see families coming in and out of them.  More than that, I wonder when I’ll be face to face with you in person from a stage.

On this particular Monday morning I grieve for one of Denver’s most loved venue owners, Sandra Holman Watts  – owner of Live at Jacks – who tearfully announced via video that she has had to close her venue permanently.

In the meantime, some local venues and rehearsal studios have figured out ways to produce live streaming events with full production.  And of course musicians are still sending out good vibes from their homes.

Colorado legacy artist Hazel Miller is hosting a House Party For Hope on the Big Head Todd & the Monsters Facebook page on May 17th. Hazel’s live show from home will benefit the Inner City Health Center and Hunger Free Colorado.

One bit of good news – besides producing this show for you weekly from my home studio, I am also an on air host at 105.5 The Colorado Sound KJAC Greeley.  I host Saturday 8AM to 12PM and Sunday 5PM-8PM.  I haven’t been on since early March.  I will return to my Saturday morning shift next Saturday, May 16.

Monday April 20, 2020Happy 4-20, although I’m not really sure if that’s relevant any longer.  It’s almost impossible to go on social media now and not see a live streaming event being put on by musicians throughout the state (and the world for that matter).

As I learned on Saturday, our fans are quite willing to show their love by dropping some coins (and dollars) in the virtual tip jars.  To that end, I am grateful for the support of my friends that host the NoCO Live from Home Show, based out of Fort Collins.  And I’m especially grateful to those who dropped some dollars into my Venmo and PayPal accounts during my performance.

Speaking of support.  A huge thank you to the newest sponsor of the show.   Denver DrumZ.  Located on Colfax Ave, owner JB Running Bear Maroncelli is currently offering live streaming lessons for students of all ages and experience level.

Monday April 13, 2020 If Easter in the traditional sense is about resurrection, I can only hope that our outdoor live music season is resurrected from all this isolation we’ve been experiencing.  That said, it was announced this past week that the long running Telluride Bluegrass Festival has been cancelled for this June as has the Pagosa Folk & Bluegrass Festival, and the Dark Sky Festival scheduled for late June in Westcliffe.

Monday March 9, 2020 – MARCH 08 is International Women’s Day.  In honor of that, this week’s show was dedicated to and in celebration of the incredible women of Colorado music, from the 60s to today.  See YOUTUBE THIS WEEK below.

It was another weekend of emceeing … this time for the Boulder International Film Festival singer-songwriter Showcase, held at the POST in Boulder.  Several of Colorado’s top flight women appeared, including Jessica Rogalski (Mojomama), Abby Brown, Riley Ann, Finn O’Sullivan and Caroline Quine (Bitter Root).  Wendy Woo appeared at a special after party show on Friday night.

Thanks to Lisa Bell, another of our region’s top flight women in music, and her team for putting together a stellar lineup of performers.  The Thursday night show was the first for the film festival, and the 100 capacity room at the POST was packed all night.

NoCo Hemp Expo - Denver, Colorado

CP S14 EP08 2020

Monday March 2, 2020 – Another week and another weekend full of live music.  Friday night I emcee’d the Future Arts Foundation‘s Winter Folk: Music & Photography Showcase at the St. Vrain event center in Longmont.  Congrats to Travis Albright and his team for an amazing month of music that included some of the top Americana country-folk, singer-songwriters and bluegrass in our scene today along with a few nationally recognized names.  Look for more from FAF in the near future.

Saturday night was spent at Washington’s FoCO for the 105.5 The Colorado Sound 4th b-day party.  Being one of the staff and on air talent at 105.5 has been among the greatest joys of my 41 years in NoCO broadcasting.

The opening act was Kiltro, a Denver band fronted by guitarist/vocalist Chris Castillo, originally from Chile.  According to the guests who attended with me (2 most recently moved here from New Jersey), Kiltro won the night because of their Chilean influences and because the vocals appeared secondary to the music, which reminded them of Pink Floyd at times.

Now managed by 7s Management (Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats, The Motet, Brent Cowles), Kiltro will be appearing at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park and the Gothic Theater in Denver over the next couple of weeks.
