Wedding couple - Bradley Weaver & Sami Jo Lien

Wedding couple – Bradley Weaver & Sami Jo Lien

I don’t often post pics from friends’ FaceBook posts, but this is one time I couldn’t resist.  Congrats to Sami Jo Lien and Bradley Weaver who went and got themselves legally married this weekend …and as usual for such celebrities, they managed to avoid the press by keeping it all a secret outside of family and close friends.  Bradley is 1/5 of Ryan Chrys & the Rough Cuts, and Sami Jo is Senior Publicist at JKSCommunications according to her FB page.  goatz anniversary 2014

In the meantime, Mrs Goat and I celebrated our anniversary (on the same day you guys?? Really??  Does this mean a joint anniversary party next year?)  Congrats you two from Mr & Mrs Goat.

Local blues guitarist/vocalist James Speiser recently had a bike accident that required his elbow be replaced and a plate inserted into his wrist.  James is a full time working musician.  Like many in our scene he doesn’t have sufficient insurance to cover a situation like this. james speiserIn a FB post from James this weekend he says, “With $92,000 in hospital bills and out of work, I have to thank MusiCares for helping me with some expenses and my surgeons cost. I have to thank David Booker and the Colorado Blues Society for hosting a benefit to help me. Denver has an amazing blues and music community and we really help each other out. I am very grateful.”

“The MusiCares Foundation, Inc., was established in 1989 by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Meant for musicians to have a place to turn in times of financial, personal, or medical crisis, its primary purpose is to focus the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues which directly impact the health and welfare of the music community. The foundation’s programs include emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery, outreach and leadership activities, and senior housing.” – wikipedia

On Oct 21, 2013, Musicare announced the establishment of the MusiCares Colorado Relief Fund in an effort to provide support to members of the music community affected by the September floods in Colorado. Assistance includes basic living expenses such as shelter, food, utilities, and transportation; medical expenses; clothing; instrument and recording equipment replacements; relocation costs; home repairs; debris removal; and more. (http://www.grammy.org/news/musicares-establishes-colorado-flood-relief-fund)

Not to be outdone or overlooked, the Colorado Blues Society is a Colorado 501C3 non-profit with a mission to  “increase awareness of and appreciation for the Blues as an indigenous American Art form (and the wellspring from which all contemporary popular American music originated).”  Although their primary function is education, the organization is also very active in relief efforts for local causes, and has been known to help out as they can when local blues artists are in need.

The Colorado Blues Society is hosting a benefit for James at Herman’s Hideaway on Nov 22.  At the present time, it looks like the lineup will include Steve Crenshaw, David Booker, Delta Sonics, Chris Cheslin, Armando Lopez and maybe John Long, and will include special guest appearances by Pattie Melt and others. There may also be a silent instrument auction.

Speaking of blues, this weekend marks the closure of one of Colorado’s most loved, respected, and venerated blues establishments – Blues & Greens at The Boulder Outlook Hotel.  Mrs Goat, Goat-boy, and I stopped by to say hi to old friends celebrating the end of an era.  Here’s a snapshot of the day …

This is the week I pull spins data from around the state for the next NEWS NOTES & SPINS column due out NOV 1.  It’s also the week I cut and edit the next Offstage …Beyond the Music, with November’s featured artist, Reed Foehl.  Thanks to Richie Furay for being October’s featured artist.  What a thrill.

It’s a very busy week in the goat den.  This is also the final month for submissions for BEST OF consideration for 2014.  Any new releases from October on are considered 2015 releases.

I have two underwriting/advertising opportunities available for The Colorado Sound, and its various properties. For more information, contact me directly via email at thecoloradosound@gmail.com

reed foehl lost in the west

Reed Foehl Coming to OSBTM

This has been a very interesting week.  News broke this week that Fort Collins Downtown Business Association executive director Michael Short will be stepping down at the end of the year.  While it’s not directly tied to music, this is an important development as thirteen year DBA vet, and assistant director Peggy Lyle, who handled virtually ALL music related activities, resigned in August over apparent managment differences.

The DBA, in conjunction with funding from the Bohemian Foundation, produces several music related events a year in Fort Collins, including Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, the Colorado Brewers Festival, Fortober Fest, and the Friday Night Old Town Concert Series.  The question that tops the charts is, what will become of these events if the board of the DBA decides to move the organization away from events and more towards promoting and marketing its downtown business constituency by other means?  Obviously only time will tell … but in the meantime another shakeup poses more interesting questions.

Bohemian Foundation Musician Liaison Director Liz Barnez has left her gig there to pursue some personal goals. In an email to me this week Liz writes, “Going to record some stuff with my percussionist Bryon in early November for duo demo… but play trio with Eric, or band add Marty. Going to finish my record with my producer in LA first part of the year. I am going to be touring again with Catie Curtis… so, hoping to be busy with that, and getting Mudhead Music back up and running. I do virtual tour management for bands artists. All advance including, flights, accommodations, tech advance, hospitality, etc. Then create a hard copy or digital book for the tour. It’s like having a tour manager only a lot cheaper. I did this for the subdudes for many years and some Nashville artists. Gonna open it up and try to get a few clients if you hear of a need. Website for Liz Barnez and Mudhead Music to go up in the next month.”

If you are in need, please contact Liz via Facebook.

More directly related to our local music scene was a conversation I was engaged in with a major Denver entertainment (not music) franchise.  You can read that story here.

Check out the NEWS AND NOTES excerpt from this week’s show below.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK 

I got an email this past week from Reed Foehl’s PR person asking me if I’d spotlight Reed’s newest video this week.  I had included it as part of the SEPTEMBER videos of the month, so it seemed unlikely that I’d bring it out again.  However, during the course of our email exchange, I thought to ask if Reed would care to be my November guest on OFFSTAGE …BEYOND THE MUSIC.  Reed’s legacy goes back to the late 80s when he was a founding member of ACOUSTIC JUNCTION – a band that achieved considerable success in Colorado in the 90s, and eventually was signed to both Mercury and Capricorn Records.  Since the new millennium he’s been busy on a solo career, producing five albums including the new one, “Lost in the West.”  Here’s a taste…

OFFSTAGE …BEYOND THE MUSIC

Check out the final installment of OSBTM with October’s featured guest Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, and soon to be Colorado Music Hall of Fame member Richie Furay.  If you’d like to download this segment, please do so by going to KUNC or Radio 94.9.  Otherwise, feel free to stream it here.

The Colorado Sound S8|EP39 2014

Chris K profile pic Oct 2014It’s really hard to write and watch the Broncos … lol.  Okay.  They won.  So, we lost a station.  Seems KFVR, The Fever, in Pueblo is gone.  That’s it …they just disappeared.  Time to lobby Colorado Springs to get the show on in SoCO.  Would love it if KRCC picked up the show.  Congrats to my friend, Greta Cornett, who passed a few dozen worthy candidates to become the new marketing director at the Fox and Boulder theaters.  For those who don’t know Greta – she was the founder of the Fort Collins Musician Association (FOCOMA), the talent buyer at Road34 for a few years, and a member of three of NoCO’s top bands over the past decade, Mama Lenny & the Remedy, the 3 Twins Broadband, and 12 Cents for Marvin.  She most recently married Dayton Hicks, the bassist for the fabulous Fierce Bad Rabbit.

A few new music shares this week from Strange Americans, Lion Drome, and Paa Kow.  If you’re a fan of the Epilogues, the Lion Drome cut features Chris Heckman on vocals.  Lion Drome is former thrash/shed guitarist Mike Lopez from Loveland, produced by legendary NoCO guitarist and record producer Dave Beegle… turning up the 90s alt-rock/U2 vibe.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

No new videos came to my attention the past couple of weeks, so I tweaked The Colorado Sound TV.  Check out the playlist … hope you’ll view a few videos.

The Colorado Sound S8|EP38

Chris K profile pic Oct 2014I sometimes have to just sit and laugh at how busy I am nowadays trying to keep up with all the music and musicians that exist here in Colorado.  I’m sure I’ll be bemoaning life here coming up in December, which is traditionally my slowest month of the year, but for now let’s just say I’m living on the wings of the dream I had 14 years ago now when my wife encouraged me to engage in my passion for local music, and the musicians who bring it to us.

Not all hits come easily, nor when the single, ep, or lp are initially released to the public.  Sometimes it just takes a while … example from the past = Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” released initially on their 1973 debut, but that didn’t become a huge national hit until 1976.  I bring this up, because I spent last weekend absorbed in Nina Storey’s newest album “Think Twice,” that I “debuted” a new cut from on this week’s show.  It’s an exquisite album, from a Colorado native, who has had to move geographically in order to advance her career.  Maybe with a little help from her friends here in Colorado we can “break” a hit single from the album… do check it out.

I got very good news this week that the show is doing very well in the 2PM time slot on KUNC FM .. heard on 20 FM frequencies statewide, including along the Northern Front Range at 91.5FM, the Denver/Golden area at 91.7FM, and in Boulder at 102.7FM.

There are only 2 places you can download our podcast series Offstage …Beyond the Music – at KUNC FM and at iHeartMedia’s Radio 94.9 Colorado, heard only in NoCO and online every Sunday morning from 8AM-10AM.  Thanks to those stations and their respective teams for hosting the podcast on their sites.  You’re more than welcome to stream the podcast here, but if you want to take it on the go, I ask that you please visit the station websites to download it.

Thanks also to my friends who provide funding for the show:  Colorado Case Company, The Mishawaka Amphitheatre, and SpokesBUZZ.  Pls visit their websites to see why I’m so thrilled to have them on board.

A final note before we get to the music … if you’re involved with music in Colorado and you have new music to share, or a new video, pls get in touch with me so I know about it.  Sometimes I just can’t find it all on my own ;)

No VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK this week .. instead, as I’ll now do every other week, here’s the most recent OSBTM episode.  Enjoy.

The Colorado Sound S8|EP36 + Review/the Burroughs

IMG_20140901_182522_349My outdoor festival season ended this weekend.  This was the 3rd year for Fortober Fest, an end of season downtown street party in Fort Collins, produced by the Downtown Business Association (Colorado Brewers Festival, New West Fest).  Highlights from this year included the Young Ancients, Sofie Reed, Soul School, Romeo Delight (a live tribute to Van Halen), Whiskey Blanket, and the Burroughs from Greeley, among the fourteen bands picked to celebrate bikes, beers, bands and the end to the summer.

It really does take a lot to stop me in my tracks and make me listen… even harder to make me turn around while I’m walking off – busy with some activity or another when I’m working a show.  That’s more or less true for nearly all of us working live music events for a living.   We see and hear a lot of bands and at least for me, most of the time I hear them in the background.

The Burroughs from Greeley

I feel like the guy who walked in at the end of the party, when I say I just discovered Johnny Burroughs.  Nothing online will prepare you for the energy of a Burroughs’ live show.  I had to be convinced to book them sight-unseen, based purely on their reputation with some friends of mine in the scene.  I’ll need no coaxing from here on out – I’m all in, at least so far as the live show goes.

The only weakness I see with the band is there’s no need for two guitarists, both of whom are adequate, but are both doing more or less the same thing, and neither of whom really shined in their role.  The four piece horn section worked extremely well as an ensemble unit.  The husband-wife rhythm section was there – laying down a foundation that never once got in the way of the exceptional arrangements that Johnny danced and sang over.  A trio of backup singers would be nice also.

Johnny Burroughs

It as an Otis Redding song that caused me to stop.  It was the engaging smile, red hair, dance moves, passion and pure soul that held me in place for hits by James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and others.  This ain’t no velveeta cheese on wonder bread cover band in a Holiday Inn dressing up and playing for an after work middle age suburban audience.  This was raw, visceral, emotional, ass shakin’, instantaneously crowd pleasing soul.  I will NEVER be surprised should I see panties being tossed at this guy from the audience (they still do that don’t they?). 

Any of us old enough to have seen Michael or Stevie in the late 70s and early 80s would be transported… Add in elements of the likes of Tom Jones or Sammy Davis, Jr in their day and the ghosts are there, lurking in the mannerisms Johnny puts on full display inside his tight space on stage, sandwiched between the horns and guitars… far too little space to contain this new, bright, smiling, happy as hell to be there song and dance entertainer.

PS… the record really does not do the band’s show justice – this is a band meant for the stage, not the studio (at least for now).

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Two videos this week… one from the closing band at Fortober Fest, Romeo Delight A Van Halen Tribute, and one from my pal Chris Daniels and his band the Kings with Freddi Gowdy on Rocky Mountain PBS.  Enjoy.

The Colorado Sound S8|EP34

IMG_20140901_182522_349I’m always amazed when people say to me, “I didn’t know THEY’re from Colorado!”  LOL.  It happens regularly to be honest.  I think that really has been the guiding idea in presenting “The Colorado Sound” as well as “Offstage …Beyond the Music,” that I can share Colorado music, and the lives of musicians and music industry personalities who have called Colorado their home with folks who might not know who’s who and what they do.

I’ve had an absolutely amazing summer.  I got to present Coloradan and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco, South-Hillman-Furay) as a headliner on a show I produce annually (Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival), and as well at one of the acts at this year’s incredible Bohemian Nights at New West Fest.  He and I communicated this weekend, and he’ll be appearing as my guest on the next episode of Offstage …Beyond the Music.  #superstoked!

This weekend I was gifted tickets to see Aspen resident and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee John Oates (Hall & Oates) with his long running (15 yrs) Aspen trio.  What a treat to see this Colorado band in a state of the art intimate 200 cap room … WOW!  Check out his latest album when you get a chance … he killed the cut “Stone Cold Love” that he and fellow Coloradan Ryan Tedder co-wrote and co-produced, despite not having the specific beats that Ryan used to underpin the song.

He also did “Lose It In Louisiana” from the same album release, and, of course, a few classic Hall & Oates hits including “She’s Gone,” which he says has been played at every show, solo or with Daryl since 1972.  I also thought it interesting that he pointed out a couple of times that he did not bring cds to sell, and that people should purchase it on iTunes or elsewhere.  The trio format was a blast, and you could tell they were good friends out having a good time.

Leaving you with a video of John at Aspen’s KSPN from last April, doing a song he did Friday night that he wrote with esteemed songwriter Jim Lauderdale.. Enjoy.

New Offstage …Beyond The Music episode starts this week .. check it out below.
