Hey gang … sorry for the lateness of this week’s post. I just finished four days of intense production jobs at the Denver Post UMS and at Oskar Blues Lyons … WOW! I actually slept in past my normal 6:30 wake up and skipped gym and breakfast to meet some audio production and promo print deadlines.
The DPUMS was amazing as it always is. Ian Cooke packed the South Broadway Christian Church, as he always does .. and The Burroughs closed out the night to a very rowdy ready to dance crowd of local fans. Megan Burtt shined, performing selections from her upcoming album
Sunday we said “happy retirement” to Dave McIntyre, who has run the music program at Oskar Blues for the past 18 years. His son Neil, who goes by the professional handle Mr. Kneel, stole the show with a 15 minute closing stand up routine that proved one and for all (for me) that he’s the master of the rhyme and story telling. Dan Treanor’s Afrosippi, Boa & the Constrictors, Danny Shafer and all the other musical guests (inc your’s truly) helped to make it a very special 3 hour / 9 act sendoff for Dave.
Monday was a 13 hour day of prepping for and helping to produce the launch of the “new look (and sounding)” Oskar Blues in Lyons with the Steep Canyon Rangers and Bonnie & the Clydes.
