Colorado Playlist S11 EP30

WOW … another year of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest is over.  If you attended, I hope you discovered a new band to love – and enjoyed our out of state guests – Cake, Brandi Carlile and Todd Snider.

New music shares this week from Francis and the Wolf and from Strange Americans …

This coming Saturday, Aug 19, I’ll be hosting the Wellington Main Street Concert Series with Hey, Lady!, the wonderful B-52s tribute band.

COLORADO PLAYLIST – S11 EP29

It’s not Monday morning.  It’s actually Monday evening, as I’m just now getting caught up from a long weekend of music events.  Thanks to everyone who came out to the 10th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival and to the 11th Anniversary of the Colorado Playlist at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre, our primary sponsor of the show.

Despite the rain both days, we all had plenty of fun.  Even though Cracker got rained out, big hugs to Anita at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont for allowing us to bring Cracker over for a late night set.

I still have appearances this summer; so I do hope you’ll come out and catch some great live Colorado music.

  • Aug 11-13 = I’ll be on the Mountain Ave main stage at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, that will feature Leftover Salmon on Friday night.  Coincidentally, Cracker, with whom Leftover Salmon recorded “Oh, Cracker, Where Art Thou” several years ago will be on the Library Park Stage at the same time.
  • Aug 19 = Wellington Downtown Concert Series w/Hey Lady the wonderful B52s tribute band.

Sept 9 = GOATZ! and Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins

Sept 10 = GOATZ! at Oskar Blues Original Grill and Brew in Lyons 


Big news and rumors of big news have been making the rounds here recently.  First of all, it is true that Colorado native and original member of Poco, Rusty Young, who played in Boenzee Cryque in the 60s has a new solo record coming out.  For many years he’s fronted the name Poco – and I say fronted because the other original members, including Richie Furay have long distanced themselves.  At any rate, the album is due out September 18.

In the rumor column — is Paper Bird about to fly apart? Hmmmm… rumors have been swirling for a few weeks, and even Paper Bird member Paul DeHaven has stepped out with a new solo effort.  While I have not confirmed the rumor, my sources are indeed extremely reliable.  I included the new Paul DeHaven single in this week’s show.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP27

Wolford Mountain – 6:40AM Saturday July 22

I went fishing this weekend.  I was very lucky – not with fishing – but with DEBUTs this week.

A.J. Fullerton and Face Vocal Band both shared new cuts that are not yet available generally.   Face Vocal Band will be appearing at the Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival in Dacono on August 5 in direct support of Cracker, and will be headlining Red Rocks on August 6 with Dearling.

The new album from the critically praised bluesman A.J. Fullerton will be out August 24.

This week’s MMMM has three new cuts from Dave & the Gin Mill Gypsies, Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams, and the Garrett Sayers Trio.  Make sure to listen and vote, pls.

I took NO music with me onto the water, nor did I play music at my campsite.  The only time I listened to music was in the car, during all 308 miles of the trip.  One thing that consistently stood out was the new EP from the Still Tide, which is sure to be among my favorites of 2017.

BTW .. the fishing at both Wolford Mountain Reservoir (outside of Kremmling), and Willow Creek Reservoir (outside of Grandy) was “EH.”  But – driving with the top down in the mountains (exceeding the speed limit of course) – listening to music – PRICELESS!

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP26

Chris J & Chris K – 2 GOATZ! – Wellington Main Street Concert – July 15 2017

What a weekend.  GOATZ! played 3 shows in 3 days .. AND the Colorado Playlist is back on the airwaves at 94.3FM in Summit County!

Saturday, GOATZ! was part of the Wellington Main Street Concert Series with Grateful Dead tribute band Switchman Sleepin’.  A magnificent evening with a cool breeze and about 500 people enjoying themselves in small town Colorado park – complete with local vendors and local beer.  Doesn’t get much more American … or Colorado … than that.

Sunday we spent the day in Fort Collins as part of Walrus Ice Cream 30th Anniversary – a Benefit for Adoption Dreams Come True, an organization I’m deeply indebted to for helping me adopt my oldest daughter Shannon. Thanks to Channel 7 News Anchor Shannon Ogden for swinging by for a 30 minute set of his own music … dude’s got skillz folks.

Most people who follow the Colorado Playlist are mostly familiar with my on-air work over 39 years in NoCO, and not in my role as leader of GOATZ!  In fact, the upcoming 11th Anniversary party also marks my 39th year in Colorado radio.  I started out at 1310AM KFKA and 96.1FM KFKZ in Greeley, 39 years ago, before moving onto 99.1FM KUAD (Quad 99 – the Power Station)

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP21



SUMMER is officially in full swing, which of course means I’m busier than all get out.  And so are you LOL.  Last Thursday I hosted the first Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live Series in Old Town Square Fort Collins, with SHEL.  It’s one of the most ideal settings in Northern Colorado, and over 1000 enthusiastic fans were out in force to support the girls.

This week I get the pleasure of hosting my friends in the Blue Canyon Boys on the Old Town Square stage.

Saturday I hosted the Poudre River Fest for the second time in a row – the lineup was great with the Patti Fiasco and Gasoline Lollipops anchoring the top of the bill.

SHEL at Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live

SUNDAY was a somewhat special day … I attended my first CHUN People’s Fair in 4 years, when I retired as main stage manager, official emcee and as a member of the PF steering committee.

CHUN no longer produces the event.  It’s also considerably scaled down from years past.  When I first became involved with PF at the turn of the century, over 120 acts performed on five stages.  Today, only a couple dozen acts appear on two stages – and for the first time, national level acts made their way onto the main stage.  All things considered the smaller event came off extremely well – and the weather for once was not an impediment for folks to come out for the weekend.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP14

New music shares this week from Debajo del Agua, Analog Son (f. Ivan Neville), Natalie Tate, and Ryan Chrys & the Roughcuts.  I also played a new cut from Wolf van Elfmand, but there was no embed available to share.  Ditto Rose Hill Drive who I had hoped to share also this week.

Look for new releases next week from Andy Palmer and Head for the Hills among others.

SHOW NEWS = 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins moved the show to Saturdays from 4PM to 6PM.

GOAT ON THE TOWN

(I know that’s some corny shit .. but what the hell)

Look into any nook and cranny today and you can find live music.  This is especially true of brew pubs, where on just about any night of the week you can find an amazing array of local talent – generally of the singer-songwriter variety, and mostly in country, bluegrass, and folk styles — and mostly acoustic, although there are certainly exceptions to all those things.

The Prairie Scholars – CHUBurger Longmont – April 14

I stopped by Oscar Blues CHUBurger in Longmont Friday evening for a burger and a beer and caught up with friends Jessica and Andy Eppler, aka the Prairie Scholars… one of, if not the top duo playing Longmont right now… holding court every Tuesday night at SKEYE Brewing‘s open mic night.  SKEYE Brewing also hosts music every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 9.  See their schedule online for details about the acts playing there.

Echo Brewing in Frederick does not offer live music regularly, according to the staff.  I stopped by there Saturday afternoon to see a friend and have a couple of pints.  Echo was celebrating their 5th Anniversary, and as a special event treat they had local garage rock cover band Cat Jerky playing.  It was a perfect afternoon to have a killer Kolsch and enjoy some classic rock and country.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK 

I first became aware of, and a fan of Debajo del Agua in 2007, when they released Arte-Santo.  Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with them on some shows around the region. Then, following their 2008 release The World Upside Down, the band inexplicably dropped off my radar.  I’m happy to say, they have a new album out for 2017 – with a renewed vision and expanded sound.

From their website bio:  Debajo del Agua has been a pillar of the artivist musical community for over a decade. While their musical style is not easily categorized or defined, it is focused on fusing hip hop with the melodies of Andean music, samba, son, salsa, cumbia, reggae, and reggaeton, creating a flavorful blend of melodies, spiced up with a style of its own. The members of Debajo del Agua span the Americas coming from Chile, Peru, El Salvador, Mexico, and the United States.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP10

Monday afternoon … still recovering from a weekend that took me to three rooms in three cities, and narrowly missing a drunk driver going northbound in the southbound lane of I25 on Saturday night.  He did not survive, I’m sorry to say.  Within minutes of me missing him, he was in an accident that shut down I25 at Loveland.

The big news this week is KRFC moving the Colorado Playlist from it’s long held 8PM slot on Saturday night to the 9PM slot on Friday nights … better to serve the live music crowd on a Friday.  The other big news is the signing of Brent Cowles to the same label that launched the Lumineers .. much love to Brent who said we might be able to score an exclusive on the new EP “Cold Times” coming in April.

Speaking of new releases – I’ll be debuting the new single from John Statz in next week’s show … produced by Megan Burtt.  Not the first time she’s sat behind the board directing the flow in the studio.

Tiffany Christopher scored another home-run in last week’s MMMM, not only reaping the most votes, but also a nearly perfect KEEP decision – seems to me that you just went “eh” at the rest of the selections.  Check out this week’s run of cuts below.


GOAT ON THE TOWN 3 NIGHTS 3 BANDS

This going out on the weekends is getting to be a good habit for this goat.  Not working isn’t necessarily the most financially positive thing I could be doing, but getting out from behind the sound board and getting out to some local rooms IS a good idea.

Gasoline Lollipops at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox (Denver)

Friday night I stopped by the Roost in Longmont to catch a bit of one of my newest Front Range favorites, Francis & the Wolf — the runner up in this year’s Oscar Blues / Bolder Boulder Battle of the Bands.  Much respect to the band that won, Francis and the Wolf is an American Trad-Rock band of the first order, resplendent in their Bruce Springsteen meets Tom Petty blue collar swagger.

Saturday night my band GOATZ! shared the evening at Avogadro’s Number (Fort Collins) with the Matt Skinner Trio featuring bassist Ben O’Connor (Halden Wofford & the Hi-Beams) and guitarist Michael O’Connor (no relation to Ben).  I’ve said many times that Matt Skinner is my favorite country male vocalist in the area.  Saturday night confirmed my belief.  Matt is as capable of echoing the legends of the past as he is able to stand next to some of today’s most recognized Americana-country up and comers.

I got up early on Sunday morning to meet my brunch date at Opelia’s Electric Soapbox in Denver and 4 hours of Gasoline Lollipops.   If there’s any doubt left that the “pops” are one of the region’s hottest up and coming bands, put them away – a packed house in Denver is all one needs to move from small room status to bigger rooms like the Bluebird or Gothic in Denver.  Along the way Stephen Brackett, aka Brer Rabbit from Flobots, stopped by for some lunch/brunch and hung out for a set.

Ophelia’s is Denver’s hot small restaurant / music venue right now.  Talent buyer Randall Frazier has kept some of the region’s top acts moving through there – including Big Head Todd & the Monsters for a NYE show. That says a lot about the room’s cred in the scene.  We sat in the lower level next to the mixing station – the sound was perfect – not too loud so that you couldn’t talk and enjoy a great meal.  The food there is outrageously good.

Happy to say GOATZ! and Gasoline Lollipops have two shows together this coming spring/summer season – staring with May 20 at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins.
