HAPPY VETERANS DAY
NEVER FORGET 

As we approach the midway point of November, it seems that site traffic has hit a hard roadblock of sorts. I hope you’ll remember to stop by and check out the new music in the MMMM and vote to KEEP or DELETE.

As this is the time of the year to give thanks – I cannot give enough to the stations and listeners who make this show possible.  I would love to meet you … and with that I’ll be appearing with my long time musical partner Chris Jackowski and local teenage fiddle phenom Jackson Earles at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins on NOV 17, and with my full electric band lineup at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on NOV 24.  I hope you can come by so I can thank you in person for your support.

NEW this week YouTube Colorado Playlist of all the tracks from this week’s episode .. which includes new MMMM tracks from Foxfeather, AMZYKing Eddie, AMZY, Kid Reverie, Joe Johnson, and Tnertle.

Make sure you follow me on Spotify to find out what new artists I might be checking out.  This week’s Spotify playlist is short some fine tracks from SUCH, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Zephyr and Alpha Centauri

I found all of this week’s tracks on YouTube – the first CP YouTube weekly playlists.  Pls let me know what you think.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Speaking of Zephyr — very very happy that they along with original lead guitarist Tommy Bolin will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2019.

Also being inducted is the truly legendary Freddie-Henchi Band.  Both Zephyr and the Freddi-Henchi Band were signed early on their careers in the late 60s, but wound up being more regionally famous as time went on;   Zephyr until Candy’s death in 1984, and the FHB until the mid to late 80s when various life issues (drugs, booze, etc) decimated the band.

FHB would re-emerge in the mid 90s for a brief run.  Freddi “Love” Gowdy appears with Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy today.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Betsy Mortenson and Harrison Goodale, the principles behind Sustain Music & Nature, an amazing organization that recently invited the Burroughs to participate in in Songscapes.  Here’s our chat:

Anyone doubting that the Album of the Year is for 2018?  Oh, and have you heard of Nathaniel’s new candy bar?

“A Little Honey” Handcrafted Chocolate with Honey, Blood Orange, and Marigold

“Inspired by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ “A Little Honey”, this limited edition craft chocolate is a fundraising collaboration between The Marigold Project, Small Batch America, and Fruition Chocolate Works. Made with 74% dark heirloom Costa Rican cacao, organic honey, blood orange, and marigold petals. Packaged in a letterpress sleeve.

Proceeds from ‘A Little Honey’ will benefit The Marigold Project and Denver Urban Garden’s work to support Denver residents in creating sustainable, food-producing neighborhood community gardens. DUG knows that in order to make lasting change, the community needs to drive it. That’s why every one of their urban gardens and farms have been started and led by local residents. They currently have over 170 gardens in six counties in the Metro Denver Area.”

Gotta love Monday mornings after a full weekend of brain daze and music … oh, wait … I’m thinking of next Monday, when I don’t know if I’ll still be okay to sit and type a few lines, after three days of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, and one night of Yarmonygrass (in/near Bond and State Bridge and Rancho Del Rio).

Yarmonygrass is a non-profit, volunteer-powered event that benefits the Coral Creek Kids Music Project to bring music performance and education to underserved kids in Colorado.  GOATZ! is excited and honored to be the opening act on Thursday Aug 9.

BIG THANKS to everyone involved with the 11th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival that took place Saturday.  Despite about a half hour wind storm that was borderline “shut down” level we made it to the end without incident – and with a FABULOUS (pun intended) show from the FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS, The Burroughs, Taylor Scott Band, Bonnie & the Clydes, Andy Sydow, and Veggie Matters.  Also big thanks to the City of Dacono.

I received an email last week that the Colorado Playlist will no longer be aired on 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins.  Basically, management has decided to no longer air syndicated programming.

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

It was a long weekend.  Saturday I was the stage manager for one of the stages at the Denver Day of Rock. After a blistering mid-afternoon set I got to hang with Brent Cowles and his band that included Joe Richmond (drums), Nate Meese (bass), and Trent Nelson (guitar) and chat about what’s up … turns out they’re heading out on the road with Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats for a seven day east coast run – with a new album dropping next week.  ***BE LISTENING to next week’s show for another fresh track from the upcoming album***

Monday I exercised my position as entertainment coordinator for the 40th Bolder Boulder – that included several of our area’s best local bands – including MLIMA, Monocle Band, Crowboy, South to Cedars, VooDoo Kings, CC & the Riders, Eef, Jill Brzezcki, Tim Ostdiek, Antonio Lopez, and Slopeside among others.

Colorado Symphony, now operating in the black, catches break on rent for city-owned Boettcher Concert Hall. According to the article in the Denver Post, the Colorado Symphony ended the year in the black for the first time since a 2011 internal review declared it was on the brink of disaster.  As a result, the Denver City Council voted to provide the symphony savings of $166k a year in the way of free office space and cheaper rent to use Boettcher Concert Hall.  Follow the link for more info.

Gasoline Lollipops will soon have a new sound and a new drummer.  Adam Perry, who was also once the drummer for the Yawpers as they were emerging in the scene, has announced he’s leaving the band to put more efforts into his job at a Boulder law firm, writing for Westword, and his now 8 year old daughter.  Band leader Clay Rose says the sound of the band will morp into more spacey and psychedelic themes.  The story was first reported in the Boulder Beat.

Last week I reported on the death of Denver Joe.  In the meantime, long time friend and Denver musician Marty Jones wrote a terrific tribute to Joe for Westword.

CP S12 EP14 2018

For the past twenty plus years my music interests, as a fan/consumer and an industry guy, has been focused on non-theatrical forms of presentation.

Over the past few months, however, my girlfriend – who enjoys musicals – has taken me to the Bug Theater to see presentations of musicals of Evil Dead, Disaster, and Reefer Madness presented by the Equinox Theater Company.  Both Evil Dead and Reefer Madness are award winning and critically praised presentations.

If you haven’t attended a good – or any –  little theater presentation recently, I highly encourage you to see the current presentation of Reefer Madness the musical .. it may not be pop, rock, country, soul or blues – but it sure is one hellova good time in one of Denver’s treasured theaters.

Being a musician fronting my own band, I know how hard it is to get three voices in sync.  Watching the ensemble crew Saturday night, I was amazed at just how much work must have gone into making sure they sang well together – and danced together on such a small stage as that at the Bug.

The house band, which stays behind the scenes, is among the best I’ve heard in the region regardless of style.  The only thing I found lacking was the audio engineer, who failed on several occasions to bring up the mic level on the “narrator,” a main character in the play.  There were also other instances where dialogue was muddied or muffled.  But sitting in row three center stage I was able to make out most of what was being said – most of the time.

Overall – if you want to break away from seeing a band perform at one of the many fine music venues, head to the Bug for the current Reefer Madness the Musical presentation.  It’s been one of my favorite music experiences in 2018.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

I’ve known Andy Sydow as a friend and consulting client since he graduated from college about six years ago now.  Along the way, I’ve been able to enjoy a young artist mature into his own voice.  Reasons For Departure is his latest release.  This is the title track.
