WEEKEND MUSIC REVIEW NOV 17 2019

Friday night we attended the Whippoorwill album release show at Washington’s in Fort Collins.  The show featured recent North Carolina transplant, Courtney Hartman.  

Saturday night I emcee’d Strings and Stories featuring members of the Elephant Collective in Longmont, presented by the Future Arts Foundation.

After that show ended at a very reasonable 9:30PM, we drifted over to Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids for a late night dinner and to catch up with good friends, Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene. 

 We didn’t stay long at Oskar Blues.  As usual, the Crime Scene brought a full house, and a rockin’ band to the stage.  Despite a replacement drummer, the band continues to show why they’re one of the best blues based roots rock and roll bands in our scene. The driving energy that comes off the stage is palpable.

The Strings & Stories concert series features national and local musicians in a very intimate and stripped down atmosphere. Musicians will play songs from their catalog and tell their stories. Proceeds from each concert will provide an instrument to a local school in need.”

The Elephant Collective is a production house, artist development agency and music media platform founded by Dango Rose (Elephant Revival). They offer production, collaborative songwriting, and personalized coaching services focused on career growth for musicians. 

The Elephant Collective set featured former founding Elephant Revival members Dango Rose, Sage Cook and Bridget Law, along with two friends, newcomer Bob Berrick aka Kingdom Jasmine and Jonny Miller aka J Robert Miller from the Lonesome Days.

Dango, Sage and Bridget performed songs from the Elephant Revival catalog as well as songs from their own personal collections.  Each told stories behind their songs.  Sage’s often humorous off-tangent stories proved to be a hit with the sold out audience in the small Firehouse Arts Center performance room.

On the other side of the stage, the very pregnant (35 weeks) Bridget law owned the audience with an angelic (albeit breathy) voice, and stunning violin work.  Bridget also recently released an album with her husband’s Tierro Band.

Strings and Stories is one of the region’s rare actual listening events, and it’s all for a great cause.  Future Arts Foundation is also producing the Bluebird Music Festival next April.  The final S&S show is December 14th, and it’s SOLD OUT… sorry.

Album release shows are very often the most exciting shows a band from our region performs.  Typically, and the case here, it’s when the greatest number of local fans come out in celebration.  Whippoorwill’s crowd and a strong contingent of Courtney Hartman supporters nearly filled the nine hundred seat Washington’s FoCO (a Colorado Playlist sponsor).

Courtney did an adequate job as the opening act, her quiet presence on the stage and intricate compositions perhaps better suited for smaller, quieter, more attentive audiences.  She showed her admirable guitar skills also during Whippoorwill’s set.

Whippoorwill is essentially a trio, featuring Patti Fiasco leader Alysia Kraft (guitar, vocals), Staci Foster (guitar, banjo, harmonica, vocals), and Tobias Bank (drums, vocals).   The band was rounded out on stage with the album’s producer, J.Tom Hnatow from Kentucky on keyboards and pedal steel, along with the session bass player.

A seasoned leader of the high energy alternative country-rock band Patti Fiasco, that has opened for the likes of Bon Jovi at the Pepsi Center, Kraft’s presence dominates.  She prowls and stalks the stage with externalized emotional energy, throwing ball buster level kicks and holding her shimmering silver electric guitar like she’ll seriously mess you up if you try to take it from her.  Everything about Alysia screams “big stage persona.”

Her partner in music and life, Staci Foster, is the internalized muse – and the perfect quiet complement to Alysia’s highly kinetic stage presence.  Staci’s demurely reserved presence is amplified by an equally timid and delicate voice, contrasting suitably against Alysia’s upfront rock and roll attitude.

Drummer and vocalist Tobias Bank fills in all the required spaces, vocally and rhythmically.  Together with Kraft, the three core members of Whippoorwill presented themselves as one of the best country inspired vocal trios on the Front Range today.

There’s little doubt Whippoorwill will be one of the better drawing bands in Northern Colorado in 2020, with Alysia Kraft further cementing her legacy as one of the top female entertainers in our state from over the past decade, regardless of the band she fronts or shares the spotlight with.

Monday Feb 25 2019

If you missed it, here’s the entire interview with Eddie Roberts, a member of the band The New Mastersounds from England, a Colfax Ave resident the past four years, and a founding partner in the new Denver label Color Red.  Run time = 20 minutes.

Coming up in a future episode, Colorado Music Hall of Fame inductee as a member of Firefall – Rick Roberts joins me. Rick and former Zephyr guitarist Jock Bartley formed Firefall in 1974. Rick was also the voice of the Flying Burrito Brothers from 1970 to 1972 and recorded two albums under his own name, before forming Firefall.

New music hit this week from my own band, GOATZ!  Veronique Van Pelt, and Drew Ballantyne.  Fortunately, it was a light week because I still have releases to get to from Amy and the Peace Pipes, Bison Bone and others.

Last week’s MMMM was off the charts .. we set a new five year record for most visits and most views and most votes.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

I overheard someone say recently that he wished more bands would do protest songs. Intuit is a violin / cello driven Rocky Mountain acoustic groove-rock band with roots in a diverse range of musical styles.  They’re also a bit political – or at least socially conscious.

CP S13 EP01 2019 – BEST OF 2018

Monday Dec 31, 2018 – HAPPY NEW YEAR.  I was so excited for this year’s BEST OF I jumped the gun a week in labeling the show.  I also got confused.  The show originated in 2006, making 2019 the 14th season of the show.  So I’m a year behind that way. This is what you get when you’re “old.”  CRS syndrome. Oh well.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Colllins), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KHEN (Salida), KZYR (Vail), and KJAC (Greeley) for airing the Colorado Playlist.  Because of them, the show is heard on 24FM frequencies around the state, 52 hours a week.  There’s a “letter of intent” for another mountain town station to pick up the show before April.

Below you’ll find the playlist for The Best of 2018.  Twenty-five titles made the cut, counting the overall TOP 10 and the TOP 10 Fan/Listener Poll selections and TOP 5 Fan/Listener Videos of 2018 selections.   It was an amazing year.  Follow the links to see this year’s rankings and to listen to the LP/EP.

Monday Nov 26, 2018 – Did you eat too much?  Over the weekend since last Thursday I read we gain over 2lbs at this time of year. I’m still in recovery mode myself. Best way I know of mitigating that is to go out and experience all that Colorado has to offer at this time of year – including, but not exclusively, Colorado music.  There are some great shows coming up over the next few weeks.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

As I scoured the inter-webs this past few weeks I came across a review of a “new” player in the scene = Davey Daydream.  He’s not really new.  He moved here to study at CU Boulder from NJ in 2008.  Formerly a bass player and lead singer in bands that did everything from straight ahead pop-punk to experimental prog-rock and a coffee shop singer songwriter, he’s included DJing and producing with elements of EDM and Hip-hop into his repertoire.    A breakout show in Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins could set Davey up as an artist to watch for in 2019 and beyond.

CP S12 EP44 2018

 Monday Nov 19, 2018 – This is my pre-Thanksgiving post.  As my girlfriend and I sat and watched news coverage of the California fires this past week, I couldn’t help but think about our own state and just how easily it would be for that to happen to us here.  Natural disasters destroy everything.

One of the reasons we launched Rocky Mountain Music Relief a year ago was so that when natural disasters affect the musicians in our own region we’d have a way to help out.   While our mission statement declares that we exist to help out musicians in the Rocky Mountain region (Colorado mostly) – I hope we can all contribute to helping those in need in California.

I’ll have big news coming in Q1 2019, but let me tease you a bit.  Next year when I thank stations for airing this program there will very likely be one more.  KFFR (Winter Park) has acknowledged they love the show and want to air it.  They’re hoping for early 2019.  Keep your fingers crossed.  No deal is a done deal until the show is added and aired.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Collins), KJAC (Greeley/Front Range), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio/Durango), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KZYR (Vail) and KHEN (Salida).

These stations reach out across 24FM frequencies in the state – bringing Colorado music to their  listeners 52 hours a week.  I hope you’ll support them with your financial contribution.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

The environment is on everyone’s mind.  “Nature’s Way” was originally written, recorded and released by the band Spirit in 1969. Songwriter Randy California recorded several versions of the song over the years, quipping that he never quite got it right.  Now, it’s Firefall’s turn.  Bassist Mark Andes an original member of Spirit, sings lead and is joined by  featured guests Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles and John McFee of the Doobie Brothers.

I expect a new album from Firefall in the coming months.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

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.
