New Orleans Suspects to headline Sunday @ NedFest

Who are the New Orleans Suspects, you say? Let's start with Mean Willie Green on the drums, drummer for the Neville Bros. since 1981, not to mention playing on albums by Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead. Then add Reggie Scanlan, bassist for The Radiators for all 33 years of their existence, plus he was a member of Professor Longhair's band. On sax there's James Brown's band leader (for the last 12 years of his life) Jeff Watkins, who after Brown passed away led Joss Stone's band for 6 years.

Galactic Brings Mardi Gras, Robert Randolph, & Funk to Denver

Galactic is not just a band. They are a community. They are a party. They are a movement and a force that comes to town to bring an awakening or awareness that is deeply entrenched in a carnival type New Orleans experience. With Mardi Gras at our heels, Denver was still feeling the holiday spirit, and the circus was in town. I call Galactic a community because I have never really seen a band with more of an open family type jam spirit that welcomes so many different types of musicians depending on their latest albums or motives.

Travelin McCourys w/ Bill Nershi | Fox Theater | 3/12/14 | Review

The greatest thing about The Travelin' McCourys, or Del’s Boys, is that they are so open to collaboration. They were bread in a family of musical versatility that never limited any possibility if they could do something interesting.

The mini-Southeast tour follows an ambitious Winter 2014 tour which included a packed January show at Denver’s Bluebird Theatre and significant growth in numerous national markets.

David Grisman FolkJazz Trio | Boulder Theater | 3/7/14 | Review

It’s felt like eons since David “Dawg” Grisman has played in Boulder. Not that is really been all too long, but since then residents have all sorts of jammy and traditional grass growing underneath them. Theater performances and community picks become increasingly popular and plentiful. A sort of roots resurgence has blossomed and a generation of newgrass players is inheriting while reinventing this tradition. Purists need to a look back a few generations to what Dawg music did for what was then current in bluegrass.

Keb' Mo' Blues Americana in Boulder | Review & Photos

After a great interview on Valentine’s Day with probably the best blues Americana musician alive, it was my pleasure to see him perform at the Boulder Theater. As I approached the theater, I noticed that there were a lot of people looking for extra tickets. I should not have been surprised, but the show was very sold out.

Stanton Moore 'Conversations' Out 4/15

Over the course of his 20-year career, drummer Stanton Moore has become known as one of the premier funk musicians of his generation. On his latest album Conversations, due April 15 from The Royal Potato Family, he moves in a slightly different direction, returning to his roots while reinventing his trademark sound.

Kung Fu Releases New Full-Length Album, Tsar Bomba

Kung Fu has released their highly anticipated sophomore album, Tsar Bomba, featuring 12 original songs including fan favorites “Do The Right Thing,” “Hollywood Kisses,” and “Snaggle.” The band took their time on this album, recording it slowly over 18 months at Gold Coast studios and the result is a perfect example of their unique sonic contribution to the music scene. Blurring the lines between electro-jazz-fusion and ‘70s-style street fighter funk, Tsar Bomba captures the band’s musical prowess with a delightful sense of creativity and musicianship.
