There is a fair amount to hear this week along the Front Range. I would probably check-out Joey Porter tonight. On Wednesday, I’d do George Thorogood and Buddy Guy, because George is a legend.  On Thursday afternoon, I would probably go see the Everyone Orchestra for free at  Sculpture Park and then to New Speedway Boogie at Donkey OT. Friday looks like a good night for Phish. Tour de Fat in Fort Collins and Taste Of Colorado in Denver are good ways to spend Saturday. The Uproar Festival at Fiddler’s Green will rock your Sunday. The Taste Of Colorado has many genres to listen to on Labor Day.

Have A Great Week!!  Happy Listening!!

This isn’t all the music in Colorado this weekend, but it is certainly most of the best. Personally, I would do Cervante’s and the Other Side tonight, because the New Mastersounds bring the super-funk and Blackalicious has some of the best conscious flows in hip-hop, today. Saturday and Sunday are both great days to hit NedFest. Saturday has an impressive array of musical genres, Sunday is full of bluegrass goodness, and both have amazing headliners.

HAPPY LISTENING!!!!  😉                                                       


Review: Sunday, 8/18/13 @ New West Fest in Downtown Fort Collins, CO.

 Sunday, the last day of New West Fest, saw another full day of music from 11 a.m. til around 7 p.m., all provided by Bohemian Nights. On this day, life and plans were working in unison, so I was able to see more of the music that I had promoted. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see all because of overlapping sets, and personal/musical priorities. Continue reading Review: Sunday, 8/18/13 @ New West Fest in Downtown Fort Collins, CO.

Bohemian Nights – New West Fest 8/18/13 in Downtown Fort Collins, CO.

Okay, Fort Fun!! I hope everyone is ready to get their money’s worth of the free music put on by Bohemian Nights. Again, there are five stages of music and a ‘Kid’s Music Adventure Stage’, which I hear is fun for kids of all ages. There will be a variety of musical styles offered again today, from Gospel to Electronic, Latin to Blues, and Reggae to Rock. The following are my recommendations for music to check out today.
