The Colorado Sound S9 | EP4 Jan 2015

There are days when I WISH for something insightful to write.  I usually write this post on Sunday, but Sunday got jacked. Maybe it’s just the week after birthday let down.  Hmmmm.

One item of interest, for those inclined … “Oskar Blues is stoked to be partnering withBolderBOULDER  for our first ever “Battle of the Bands” competition. If you know a band that would be an ideal fit for this type of event please read the specifications below and send an email to by 5:00pm on Monday.” That doesn’t leave you much time, sorry to say. (disclaimer  I will likely be doing sound for these events).

  • Preliminaries take place on either Feb. 18th or 25th. Two finalists will be selected to play in the finals on Saturday, Feb. 28th at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, CO.
  • The winning band gets $2,000, a paid gig at HMLS patio on Friday, May 22nd and will also be featured on the OB main stage at the BolderBOULDER on Monday, May 25th(band must have availability on both dates.)
  • Second place winners will receive $500 in cash.
  • A track from the winning band will also be featured the KBCO BolderBOULDER Bootleg CD vol. 11 and included in the downloadable tracks available on

The Colorado Sound S9 EP3 2015

Goat_Logo_color_on_whiteBirthdays are funny – aren’t they?  Happy birthday to me.  There’s a line I crossed – that line that says, “dude you’re old now.”  They’re right you know — I don’t feel “old.”  I know old people — like over 80 old.  I’m not that.   Long way to 80.  Lots of music to do until then.  Will I feel “old” when I turn 80?  I’ll let you know when I get there.  Until then, this is what I got … music … Colorado music.

I did sound for Lionel Young this weekend.  He told me there’s a new album coming out late Feb/early March.  There’s also a new Wendy Woo Band album due out about the same time, if memory serves.  Also coming in two weeks, a conversation with Wendy and her husband Charles in their home on Offstage Beyond the Music.

Word on the street this weekend is that Eck’s Saloon in Denver (Lakewood) has shut down.  Unconfirmed reports suggest they “couldn’t pay the bills.” There is speculation among some that the previous owners will take it over and reopen.  Will see what I can find out Monday.

So, Open Air 1340 AM is set to move to 102.3 FM on Monday Jan 26 — this should be fun.  Look out DENVER!

(EDIT) This move is not unprecedented. In 2005, KCUV / 1510 AM, Denver’s first and only attempt at an Americana format, moved onto 102.3 FM.  The experiment lasted three years.  Better luck to Open Air, a Colorado Public Radio (CPR) station.  Also, Paris on the Platte closed.

I also spoke with John Magnie this weekend (Young Ancients/the Subdudes).  He let me know the new Y/A album will be out late Feb/early March … to tease it here’s a new video.

The Colorado Sound S9 EP2 Jan 2015

Goat_Logo_color_on_white(Sunday Jan 11) WOW … what a great week in Colorado music and radio.  On Monday Jan 5, Colorado Public Radio announced that they had purchased 102.3FM in Denver, and that Open Air 1340 would move to the new frequency.  Friday night, Jan 9, Manassas, Firefall, Poco, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band were inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame class of 2014.

cprLogoDenver has never had a metro grade signal attached to a format that is as dedicated to local music as what we’re about to hear, beginning Jan 27.  And that’s taking nothing away from the efforts made in this region to support local music on the radio going back to the 60s. 950 KIMN is in the Colorado Music Hall of Fame partly for the support they gave to local bands like Boenzee Cryque and others.  KLZ FM, KFML, KAZY, KBPI, KBCO and KTCL have all supported bands from our area going back through our Colorado music and radio history.   None, however, have featured it as prominently as Open Air 1340 does.

What this does for SOME Colorado music regionally is nothing short of amazing. All formats are limited in scope – so no, not all styles of Colorado music will be represented. Based on what Open Air has done to date, I wouldn’t expect any major changes in what they play. However, if people won’t support it financially – by way of sponsorship or membership dollars – others will be reluctant to follow CPR’s lead.  #fingerscrossed  Stations like KRFC and Radio 94.9 in Northern Colorado and Open Air 1340 in Denver are really setting standards for a level of support of local music that we’ve quite frankly never seen before.

img-cmhof-logoFriday night was incredibly special.  A sold out house at the Paramount was on hand for a performance by some of Colorado’s music legends, and relative newcomer and potential future hall of fame member Nathaniel Rateliff who did the opening tribute set to Stephen Stills/Manassas with Jeff Hanna (NGDB), Jock Bartley (Firefall), and Richie Furay (Poco).

Firefall’s impassioned set included original members Jock Bartley and Mark Andes, with fellow original members Larry Burnett and Rick Roberts joining the “newer” lineup for the last couple of songs.  Poco’s set was electrifying – but I’m pretty biased. Supported by the Richie Furay Band, original members Rusty Young, Richie Furay, Paul Cotton, and Timothy B Schmidt turned it up to a level that literally left the sold out room roaring for more, song after song, in a set that included classics Call It Love, Bad Weather, Keep On Trying, Rose of Cimarron,  and Good Feeling to Know.  The only person missing was original drummer/vocalist George Grantham, who fell and did some rib damage a few days before the show.

Among those into folk and country music in Colorado the names Jimmy Ibbotson and John McEuen are staples in the scene, going back to 1970 when the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band moved here from Los Angeles.  Jimmy has remained as the sole original member still living in Colorado to this day, and although he left the band in 2004, seeing him on stage made the last 11 years disappear, if only for a couple of songs.  Of all the great things that came out of “the Dirt Band” moving here originally, it was their album “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” and the title track that has remained as the lasting legacy of their time spent here.

And before we get to the finale, CMHOF executive director G Brown announced that the next induction, coming later this year, will include Dan Fogelberg and Barnstorm (Joe Walsh, Kenny Passarelli, Joe Vitale).


In the current episode running now at the Offstage Beyond the Music page CMHOF executive director G Brown talks about his vision for the hall of fame over the years.  COMING IN FEB – Wendy Woo and her husband Charles and I sit at their dining room table and talk shop.

The Colorado Sound S9 EP1 2015

(Sunday Jan 4) Happy New Year.  One of the greatest things about the long year-end holiday season is that people tend to get cabin fever …resulting in more people in places where there is live music taking place, it seems to me.  And I get more new music directed my way this time of year.  Westword published their BEST OF 2014 list, the last of the “major” publications and shows to do so.  It goes to show there is more music in our region than even we “experts” can account for.  There is not a lot of crossover between their 31 BEST OF and the TOP 50 I posted on the 1st.  There is a lot of diversity in Colorado music.

No video this week.  No new music to share.  I do have a new episode of Offstage Beyond the Music this week – featuring Colorado Music Hall of Fame executive director G Brown.  If you’d like to download the podcast please visit the Offstage Beyond the Music page.
