Colorado Playlist – S11 EP28

This proclamation by Gov. Hickenlooper pretty sealed the deal this weekend for me.

 

Whipporwill UMS 2017

Three days of doing sound at the UMS (Underground Music Showcase) + 1 evening of hosting the Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live show with the Burroughs, and I have to admit I’m whipped.  What a tremendous four day run .. with some of my major summer events still to come, including:

Pretty Mouth UMS 2017

The South Broadway Christian Church is one of the most requested and respected venues at UMS every year.  Friday and Saturday produced excellent audiences and some exceptional showcases of talent.  Prob’ly due more to the weather than anything else, Sunday – yeah, not so much.  The highlights of the weekend were definitely the delectable harmonies of Whipporwill, and the powerful presentation put on by Pretty Mouth.

Call me late to the party on this band, that I only just heard about.  Marie Litton is one of the most outstanding female rock vocalists of our area.  The band showcases a sound that resonates with considerable dynamic range – moody, dark, powerful and accessible.  Expect to hear more from them on the show this year.  Be on the look for a new release from Pretty Mouth this fall.

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)

New music this week for you to vote on from Billy Shaddox, Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene, The Fremonts, Ryan Countryman, and Zach Heckendorf. 

I had the pleasure of hosting the first of three Wellington Mainstreet Summer Concert shows I am responsible for booking this summer.  Matt Skinner Band and My Blue Sky proved to be the perfect fits for the inaugural event funded by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs Mainstreet Program, the Bohemian Foundation, and local businesses .

The next one is July 15 with Grateful Dead tribute band Switchman Sleeping, and my band Goatz!

My Blue Sky will be the headliner at our Annual Colorado Playlist Anniversary show at the “Mish” in August.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP22

It’s summer.  I’m busy – either playing or emceeing or stage managing or attending an event.  Last Thursday I hosted the Blue Canyon Boys as part of Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live in Old Town Fort Collins — this Thursday I have one of my favorite family bands in the state – The Reminders, out of Colorado Springs.  Their brand of hip-hop is some of the most exciting around today, and I’m stoked to be hosting for them.

Don’t forget to let me know whether to KEEP or DELETE new music from this week’s PLAYLIST.  It’s up to you what I ultimately play on the show.  So let me know.

I did receive new music this weekend from Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene that I’ll be adding this week along with something new from Billy Shaddox

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP16

Right up front I want to thank Oskar Blues Brewery for becoming a major sponsor of this show.  Oskar Blues has been part of my family for a decade and I’m ecstatic that they believe enough in the show to support it.

OB is celebrating 20 years in Lyons this coming weekend with a killer lineup that includes Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Gasoline Lollipops, Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams and many others.  Of special note – Sunday will be a legends of Colorado blues artist showcase I intend to be present for.

It’s been a very very long time since I stayed up until 4AM.  I managed to land a room to mix for the FoCOMX weekend, and we landed a prime 9:15PM Friday night slot for the band at the Mainline Ale House – one of the nicer restaurants and music venues in Old Town Fort Collins.  What was planned to be outside on the rooftop, fortunately was moved indoors into a room that was more than adequate for live music.

Stationed for sound duties at East Coast on Linden St, for both nights, I enjoyed the juxtaposition of singer-songwriters and folk singers, and DJs creating often unique mixes of various styles of appropriate music made for dancing.

I spent 16 years mixing music in dance clubs in the 70s and 80s.  Several of those years were here in Northern Colorado, in Fort Collins and Greeley.  I was thrust back to those years as I watched the lineup of local mix masters employ their craft.

I marveled at how other than technology, nothing much has changed in the art of mixing music for a dance crowd – and how the “hit” still matters most when you want to get people on the floor.  One dj did not employ that knowledge, and paid the price of a near empty room that lacked energy.

Michelle Petrie Trio – FoCOMX 9 – East Coast

Festivals like FoCOMX are motivated by allowing space for a diversity of people who make music – from neophyte stage performers to unequivocally well rehearsed, polished, and professional legends of music along the Front Range.

Two acoustic acts I thought showed a lot of promise were the Michelle Petrie Trio and PoorBoy, who will undoubtedly be changing their name.   PoorBoy is recording their second EP with Justin Roth in Fort Collins.

String Theory on Friday was one of the most creative acts of the weekend – featuring electric bass with harp (not harmonica – a real harp; a small laptop version).

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 EP08

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1Welcome to Monday.  LOL.  I’ve been plagued by a nagging thought for the past few years.  While I, and MOST of my friends, support original acts, I do not ever want to forget that the vast majority of those who pick up an instrument, or decide to sing, are NOT songwriters.

I went out this weekend to see what I could see at a couple of the suburban rooms that feature NON-ORIGINAL music (read:  cover bands).

In one case, the band was exceptional, and while performing reminded me deeply of seeing the original acts in their original settings in the 70s (Harlem, Apollo Theater, Philly etc).  In the other case, it was as I might expect – a bunch of veteran journeymen musicians going through the motions, but hardly inspiring the audience to get up and dance.  I’ve witnessed the same thing with purely original acts — some inspire, some don’t, but we do tend to favor them over those who do not write and arrange their own thoughts and feelings into song.

All that said, I began this journey nearly 11 years ago to celebrate Colorado musicians that record great works, whether they wrote those works or not… from the biggest hit-makers and award winners to the freshest new musical talent emerging from around the state.  And, subsequently, I launched the MMMM at the beginning of the year to give you a chance to weight in.

Last week, Petals of Spain was the overwhelming favorite with a 100% KEEP IT rating.  High Fiction grabbed the most votes, but did earn a couple of DELETE IT votes.
