The Colorado Sound – S8 EP32

chris k new look aug 2014Now where was I?  Sunday night.  9PM.  End of the weekend.  A blur.  Grandson moved in.  Redecorated guest room for teenage boy.  Listened to lots of music.  Include:  Trial and Error by SuCH.

I’m a sucker for soul.  Growing up as a teenager in and around Philly and New York I couldn’t escape it.  The first concert my mother took me to was the Temptations with the Fifth Dimension.  I spent from 1973-1986 spinning records at parties and in clubs in North Dakota, New York, Connecticut, and Colorado.  Soul was and is a vital part of my regular listening diet to this day.

SuCH (Su Charles) intrigued me last year, both by the underground soul hit “Sugar Maple”, which spent 2 weeks in August 2013 at #1 on the UK Soul Charts … and which swept our fan poll last December … AND … by the fact …  that she won the Henry Award for Best Actress for her role as Celie in the Color Purple.  SuCH is a Boston born, New York raised, Chicago groomed Soul singer, living, working, and performing locally in Denver – on music and theater stages.

Old skool soul fans have lots to love about this record.  It immediately raised feelings of nostalgia for the great soul hits of the 70s and early 80s … with enough modernism that I’m not left feeling like the arrangements are stuck in the past.  Guests include local actor Mathenee Treco (P’s and Q’s (Playing Games))who will be appearing in the role of Bobby in the musical MEMPHIS at the Arvada Center for the Arts next month.  

Lovin’ “Open Book” … seriously want to do the hustle to this one LOL.  …  “P’s and Q’s (Playing Games) … “Where You Left Me” … and the title track.  SuCH’s fan base is sure to vote this one to the top of the Best of 2014 fan favorite poll again, this coming December.

PS: my grandson listens to different music than I do LOL.  Go figure.  He likes metalcore (?).  Part alt.rock part screamo (?)  I’ve got some catching up to do I see.  Metal never was my thing.

The Colorado Sound S8 EP31 + Offstage …Beyond the Music EP2 PT1

Goat_Logo_color_on_whiteSad news to report this weekend.  As we approach the 10th anniversary of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, this week’s show was to be a preview of the event.  As part of the preview I featured a cut from the original lineup of the subdudes, who were slated to appear at this year’s festival in a featured slot, headlining the Library Park stage directly in front of the festival headliner, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo on Saturday night.  Unfortunately, original bassist and band co-founder Johnny Ray Allen passed away on Friday morning, August 8, at age 56, from unknown causes.  Being the weekend, there has been no public statement released by anyone from the band, or from anyone at Bohemian Nights festival organizers.  As soon as one is available I will post it here.  More on the story here.

OFFSTAGE …BEYOND THE MUSIC EP2 PT1

When I started thinking about this podcast series, I envisioned it being a chance for me to go visit some folks in the business of making music who we as listeners and fans of live music don’t normally get to hear from.  David Glasser is the founder and owner of Airshow Mastering in Boulder.  From his bio:  “A three-time nominee [himself], he has earned two GRAMMY awards for mastering and restoration of the culturally significant Anthology of American Folk Music (1997) and Screamin’ and Hollerin’ the Blues: The Worlds of Charley Patton (2002).”

The Colorado Sound S8|EP30 + Carbon Valley Music Fest Recap

Chris K CVMF 2014I’ve had the privilege of producing the show for the Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival for seven years.  This year was the first time we expanded to a two night show.  It was also the first time we had seven regional distilleries present for the spirits tasting and competition event.  We also brought in a new lighting director and expanded the kids’ activities.

I was beyond thrilled to present four very legendary Colorado artists this year- Richie Furay, Chris Daniels, Fred Gowdy (Freddi-Henchi Band), and Sean Kelly (the Samples).   Presenting Richie was one of the highlights of the many years I’ve introduced bands to audiences around Northern Colorado, and one of the highlights of my life in music.

Richie’s “Kind Woman” has always been one of my most favorite songs of all time.  Nearly every second of his performance of that song is in the recap video below — along with footage from Chris Daniels & the Kings with Freddi Gowdy, Chris Daniels with Richie Furay, Mojo Mama, Slow Caves, Savage Cabbage, and the Mojo Music Academy Band Camp program … I’m sorry I was unable to get any video of Alterity.

A BIG thank you to the folks who came up to me all weekend and said they heard the show on KUNC … folks came from Conifer, Aurora, Boulder, and Fort Collins.  I got mad compliments about stage, sound, and lights all weekend .. much love  to my buddies from Mighty Fine Productions (sound), Marshall Austin Productions (stage), and Maniac Productions (lighting)

Here’s a recap of the weekend …

S8|EP29 JULY 2014 + OSBTM EP1|PT2

Goat_Logo_color_on_whiteOk.  I. Am. Brain-dead.  Gonna be a very crazy week – and I just got done a crazy week.  So, DPUMS 2014 is done.  Video from the acts that I did sound for at the South Broadway Christian Church on my youtube channel.

On to the next weekend.  Emcee Bohemian Nights Thursday Night Live with Manabi on Thursday in Fort Collins.  Friday and Saturday The Colorado Sound Presents The Samples & the Matt Skinner Band on Friday night and then a full day of music on Saturday with the Richie Furay Band and more as part of the 7th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival in Dacono.  Very much looking forward to hosting the Richie Furay Band Saturday night.  That’s like a dream come true for this goat.  …

Guess what’s NOT happening this month?  The TOP 40 spins chart for July spins.  Not gonna happen – sorry.  At least not until after all this craziness subsides (maybe next week?).  I do have to say how much of an honor it was last week to have so many people walk up to me around the region and say they heard the show on KUNC.  Thanks you guys!

The Colorado Sound is supported by contributions, and by the generous support of our sponsors – Colorado Case Company, The Mishawaka Amphitheatre and by SpokesBUZZ – pls visit their sites to see what’s up.  I’ll be on hand at the Mish on SPT 6 to present The Motet, whose latest self titled album has been among the most popular this year so far.

OFFSTAGE …BEYOND THE MUSIC

Taking two hours of conversation and finding a couple of 15-20 minute segments was a lot harder than I originally envisioned.  PT1 and PT2 are available on the OSBTM page.  Here’s PT2 for you to download.  Make sure to grab the Soundcloud app so you can listen on your smartphone or in the car when you’re out and about.

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.

RICHIE FURAY – HAND IN HAND

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. 

THE COLORADO SOUND PRESENTS

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 …

COMING TO THE MISH

mishEOTO

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.

Along with the addition of KUNC and its 20 frequencies is the debut of OFFSTAGE …BEYOND THE MUSIC.  You will be able to download the podcast from KUNC, Radio 949, and from our SoundCloud page.  My first guest is Colorado Music Hall of Fame member Chris Daniels.

SUPPORT PROVIDED BY

Funding for the Colorado Sound has been provided by several fans, and by my friends Chuck and Bill Grewe at Colorado Case Company, and Dani Grant at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre, and SpokesBUZZ.   It would mean a lot if you’d visit their websites and look at what they’re doing for Colorado music and musicians.

The Colorado Sound and the City of Dacono are proud to present The Richie Furay Band, Chris Daniels & the Kings f/Freddie “Love” Gowdy, the Samples, Mojomama, Alterity, Savage Cabbage, Slow Caves, and Mojo Music Academy as part of the 7th Annual Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival … along with the BMX Mile High Nationals … the weekend of Aug 1-3 at Centennial Field in Dacono CO.  FREE ADMISSION TO MUSIC & SPIRITS FESTIVAL.  ALL AGES.
