S8|EP29 + “Hand In Hand” – a review

chrisk smilingThis has been an exhilarating week.  Four days of doing sound for or emceeing three shows and a festival – and countless people coming up to me and saying they heard the show.  When I walk around crowds at shows I work and people tell me they heard and love the show I’m blown away.

In response to the handful of queries about the Colorado Sound on KUNC (and its statewide network) — KUNC airs only HOUR 2 of the show on Saturday at 2PM following American Routes.  HOUR 1 is heard on KRFC (Front Range), KDNK (Carbondale / Glenwood), KWMV (Westcliffe), KFVR (Pueblo), and Radio 94.9 (Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley).  See Stations and Times.

If you haven’t had the opportunity yet to download the current episode of “Offstage …Beyond the Music” .. each new episode or part of an episode will be published here every other week.  Grab EP1|PT1 of my conversation with Chris Daniels.

SpokesBuzz Fort Collins logoA correction / retraction is in order.  In the show this week, and in this blogpost I incorrectly wrote/stated that the Deadwood Saints were from Portland — this was a typo in the original press release.  I followed up with SpokesBUZZ PR to make sure there were not TWO Deadwood Saints – one in CO and one in OR … there’s only one .. .from Fort Collins. Glad I got that taken care of.  For more on the BandSwap program go here.  SpokesBuzz is a major supporter of The Colorado Sound.  Please go see what they’re up to; it’s pretty cool.


I debuted another new track from the upcoming Richie Furay album “Hand In Hand,” due out this September.  For old fans, this is a lifetime achievement record – worthy of anything he’s ever done in the past with Buffalo Springfield or Poco.  At 70, this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Coloradan still has a remarkable voice, with some pretty stellar guests pickin alongside him … among whom is honorary Coloradan Sam Bush (mandolin, fiddle), Keb Mo (guitar), Pate Wasner (keys, piano … Vince Gill, Alison Kraus), and Richie’s vocal sidekick, his daughter Jesse.

This is easily at the top of my list for album of the year in Colorado.  The album was impeccably well produced by Richie and Colorado Grammy Award winning engineer, producer and pedal steel guitarist John Macy, in Nashville and Denver.  Songs of note include the title track, and “We Were the Dreamers.”  “Love at First Sight” is a 10th wedding anniversary song written for his daughter Jesse and her husband Tom, that took 10 years and a shower to complete.  Richie’s wonderful stories about each song in the liner notes is an elegant touch, on what is truly one of the most elegant records in my collection – Colorado or not. 


I am beyond excited to present the Richie Furay Band at the 7th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival in Dacono, on Saturday, August 2nd.  Admission to the show is FREE and ALL AGES.

This year’s festival is the most ambitious the City of Dacono and I have worked on together over the past 7 years.  It has been expanded to include a show on Friday night from 5-9.  We are bringing back the Samples (featuring founding member / lead singer and songwriter Sean Kelly) to headline the debut of our Friday night show. Joining them will be the Matt Skinner Band who I had the pleasure of working with this weekend on two shows in Fort Collins and in Lyons.

Saturday’s show is going to be fun I think.  Five youth acts lead off the day from 1:45 to 5PM, including students from Mojo Music Academy in Longmont, along with Slow Caves, Savage Cabbage, and Alterity. Mojomama kicks off the main part of the evening at 5, with Chris Daniels & the Kings, celebrating their 30th anniversary at 6:30.  The Richie Furay Band goes on at 8:30 — and ends at 10 with a fireworks display.

Here is some video of the Matt Skinner Band from Friday night July 18 in Fort Collins …



Friday August 22nd, 8:00 PM with special guest Dr Fameus of The Disco Biscuits and The Echo Chamber

This 100% improvisational dubstep duo EOTO consists of String Cheese Incident members Michael Travis and Jason Hann. The duo mixes the organic sounds of live drums, bass and guitar through a variety of programs and gadgets to create a cacophony of catchy dance music. An Eoto fan best described it as “a raging dance party that nobody should miss. An indescribable feeling that lingers for hours“.  For information.  For tickets.

Partner Bands Announced For SpokesBUZZ BandSwap 2014 Program

July 15, 2014 – Fort Collins, CO – Now entering the third successful year, Colorado music nonprofit SpokesBUZZ is excited to announce the partner bands that will participate in BandSwap 2014.

This year, the program will send Colorado bands to play shows with partner bands in partner cities in late September, then bring the bands and their partners back to Colorado for a series of shows and events in early October.
The 2014 Colorado bands are:  Stella Luce (Fort Collins), The Yawpers (Denver), Gasoline Lollipops (Boulder), Eldren (Denver), Winchester Holiday (Fort Collins), The Deadwood Saints (Fort Collins),and Maxwell Hughes (Fort Collins).
The 2014 partner bands are: Lords of the Trident (Madison, Wis.), Jordan Igoe (Charleston, S.C.), Soul Creole (Lafayette, La.), k i d s (Athens, Ga.), and Lewi Longmire (Portland, Ore.).

BandSwap is a musical and cultural alliance among like-minded cities combining the best of grassroots collaboration, cross-promotion, creative connectivity and most of all, the unrivaled experience of live music.

Returning as partner cities in the BandSwap 2014 program are Madison, Chico, Lafayette, Portland and Nashville; Athens and Charleston are this year’s freshman class.

BandSwap creates a stage for other opportunities for connections among the cities through innovative cultural programming. This year, in addition to the performances in outbound cities and homecoming cities, BandSwap includes InnovationSwap, SynchroniCITY parties and Cultural Spotlight.

Please stay tuned, as we’ll be announcing more details (more bands, venues, dates, and more!) in the coming months. And bookmark the BandSwap website and SpokesBUZZ Facebook page for more updates.

SpokesBUZZ founder Dani Grant says, “Traditional touring is linear and very slow to grow. The theory behind BandSwap is to build reciprocity and strong relationships with bands, venues, civic partners, music industry professionals and local artist support organizations. That reciprocity helps create a network that can grow fan bases for artists and spread some civic pride at the same time…. In addition to sharing a stage and marquee in their respective cities, all the bands will also share resources, industry contacts and community connections while attracting attention to this unique program and the progressive cities that embody BandSwap’s cooperative, creative spirit.”

Chris emcee 2013I hope you got a chance this weekend to check out the Colorado radio debut of the new Richie Furay single “We Were the Dreamers” from his upcoming album “Hand in Hand,” along with the debut of the show statewide on KUNC.  My wife was so excited, she recorded a video of the debut of the show on the radio on her iPhone while we were on our way to get ice cream, without me even noticing  LOL.

I also hope you got the chance to go out and see some live music this weekend.  Here’s a recap of this past weekend in Fort Collins – shows courtesy of the Fort Collins Downtown Business Association, and the Bohemian Foundation.

The Colorado Sound S8Ep25 June/July 2014

Okay … it’s Monday afternoon.  Too much fun in the sun and too many morning appointments to get this done this morning.  The weekend was a blast.  I’ll try to find time to get some vid up but really I need to focus on month end stuff now.  I do, however, have some tasty footage from the Finnders & Youngberg show on Thursday night in Old Town Fort Collins.
