BOHEMIAN NIGHTS ANNOUNCES MUSICAL SCHEDULE FOR NEW WEST FEST 2016!!

For several years Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, have presented several stages of excellent live music, at the annual Fort Collins festival, which happens in mid-August. In the past the festival has hosted hundreds of Colorado’s finest musical acts, as well as many nationally touring headliners. This free festival has presented a plethora of superior talent, including Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, Taj Mahal Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Earl Scruggs, Los Lobos, Little Feat, Melissa Etheridge, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Leon Russell, Earth, Wind & Fire and many more. New West Fest has also brought the best local talent to the festival, like Elephant Revival, The Samples, The Subdudes, Emmitt Nershi Band, The Motet, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Hazel Miller, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Fierce Bad Rabbit, to name just a few.

This year’s New West Fest will take place over the weekend August 12-14, in downtown Fort Collins. For 2016, the musical acts have been culled almost exclusively from the tremendous pool of our states best performers. The fest will start at 5 p.m., Friday, August 12 on the Mountain Avenue and Library Park stages with sets from Otis Taylor, The Yawpers, The Railsplitters, Tickle Me Pink, Hello Dollface and Punch Drunk Munky Funk. Devotchka will bring their European gypsy flare to the Mountain Avenue stage and the mountain zydeco sounds of The Subdudes, will grace the Library Park stage to finish out the first night of the festival. On Saturday, Bohemian nights will present music for all ages on five stages, as well as the Kids’ Music Adventure Stage, starting at 11 a.m. Colorado’s own, The Fray, will be headliner on the Mountain Avenue Stage, with simulcasts being broadcast at the Linden Street and Library Park stages. The second day of the New West Fest will also see live music from 12 Cents For Marvin, In The Whale, Post Paradise, Justin Roth, Tallgrass, SHEL, Head For The Hills, Last Call Romance, Brent Cowles, The Haunted Windchimes, Finnders & Youngberg and plenty more. Sunday’s headlining act, has yet to be announced, but the third day of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest will bring more of Colorado’s choice musical talent, with sets from The Burroughs, Troutsteak Revival, Dubskin, Moors & McCumber, Dressy Bessy, Taarka, The Wendy Woo Band, Liz Barnez, The Epilogues, Wire Faces, The Patti Fiasco, The Delta Sonics and several others.

Even before we know who Sunday’s headliner is, this line-up is a very impressive one for this year’s Bohemian Nights at New West Fest. Though, it can be hot in August, and usually is for the New West Fest, and it does get crowded downtown, which means parking far from the festival, there really aren’t any other Colorado cities of comparable size to Fort Collins that have a free festival like this, with such incredible musical performers, so it is usually worth braving it all to get to this event. As we get closer to the New West Fest, I will give a listen to most, if not all, of the artists playing this year, and will post some of my recommendations of artist to catch. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! ūüėČ

Review: BOHEMIAN NIGHTS AT NEW WEST FEST DAY 3

The last day of New West Fest was full of heat and large crowds, but not so full of shade or any breeze to speak of. There was also tons of superb musical choices to end the weekend’s festivities and I was lucky enough to make a few of them.

I¬†began my day with the awesome bluegrass sextet Blue Grama on the Library Stage. They were instantly ear-grabbing with some awesome banjo picking and violin work. I stuck around to catch Denver’s own Knocean with its conscious reggae vibe. This seven-piece had great energy and a sound that incorporates parts of Black Uhuru, Peter Tosh and more.

After a short break, I returned to the fest to catch the last few songs of Bonnie & The Clydes performing their brand of outlaw country. They also did a pretty incredible¬†cover of ¬†“Atlantic City” by Bruce Springsteen to end their set. I caught a few songs by Kort McCumber at the Singer/Songwriter Stage and was impressed with his style of folk not to mention his playing ability. The Blue Canyon Boys are an incredible bluegrass quartet that play a fairly traditional style including banjo, mandolin, guitar and up-right bass all while done-up in their best Sunday duds. I got to the Mountain Stage¬†to catch the international gypsy music of Devotchka. I managed to get up to the front of the stage and remained there for awhile and was spell-bound by the level of talent that makes up this quartet. I left just before they were finished and headed back to the Library Stage to catch the funkier jazz of SuperCollider. They were good, but I found that I was more into the instrumentation over vocalization. Due to the heat and being worn-out by the crowds, I called it a day and finished my festival weekend.

Overall, I caught some awesome music during the three days of Bohemian Nights At New West Fest. The crowds seem to get bigger every year and despite the best efforts of the organizers, the crowds are getting too big for the stages, especially on Mountain Avenue and Old Town Square. Some of the best acts this year were, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Grant Sabin & The Full Moon, Elephant Revival, The Subdudes, Blue Grama, Knocean, Bonnie & The Clydes, The Blue Canyon Boys and Devotchka. This year’s fest is over and now we just have a year til the next. Hope You Were There!!

DAY 3 OF BOHEMIAN NIGHTS AT NEW WEST FEST

Although Day 2 music hasn’t even begun in Downtown Fort Collins, I wanted to give some suggestions as to what musical acts to check-out on Sunday.

I have to be honest, that I haven’t heard a lot of the acts performing on Day 3, but I have¬†heard a few and am looking forward to hearing more. Bonnie & The Clydes play some straight ahead old school country with some grit. Kort McCumber, Megan Burtt and Arthur Lee Land are all great and are playing on the Singer/Songwriter Stage throughout the afternoon. Devotchka is an act that has a sound that may be best described as European gypsy rock, but regardless of what you call it, it is incredible. Euforquestra has been playing their world-reggae-funk for awhile and have recently released an album produced by Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident, that is building momentum for the band.

There are a bunch of bands I am looking forward to hearing for the first time tomorrow including Blue Grama, Knocean, Shellist & Hundt, Wiredogs, Mosey West, Blue Canyon Boys, Supercollider and the headliner War.

¬†Check back on Sunday to read a review of Saturday’s music. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!!

These are the shows and festivals for the next week. There is a ton of awesome music to hear both close and at a distance, so no matter where you are, you aren’t going to be far from great sounds. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue name, and an * after the date for festivals. Go hear some live music this week. That’s What I Know, So That’s What I Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! ūüėČ
