After a successful fall tour, Trout Steak Revival was welcomed back home to Colorado at Hodi’s Half Note this October. The Denver Bluegrass Band is planted firmly in the Colorado’s beloved bluegrass scene.

Zappa Plays Zappa Plays One Size Fits All

Dweezil Zappa does his daddy proud night after night performing extremely technical music at a very high level. From a young age, he promised his father that he would be a guitarist, but I’m not sure that anyone but Frank could believe that he would be as good as he actually is. Dweezil is one of the best guitar players alive, and people need to start giving him the credit that he deserves.

Sturgill Simpson | Ogden Theater | Review

Never have I felt more back at home in the cow town, country music-listening, tobacco-chewing, horse-riding, bar-fighting town I grew up in than at the Sturgill Simpson concert at the Ogden Theater in Denver last Friday night. It causes me to wonder: why have country music and psychedelic drug use not met before the visionary Strugill Simpson?

Following up last year’s commercial and critical success for Sugar, which peaked on the Billboard charts at #49, G. Love and Special Sauce return to their soul-infused blues roots with their latest disc, Love Saves The Day.

NRPS with Kimock | Sweetwater | Review

Few acts have served as large of a spectrum of music as New Riders of the Purple Sage. These psychedelic country-rock titans have been performing for nearly forty-five years with original members David Nelson (guitar, vocals) and Buddy Cage (pedal steel guitar) keeping the flame burning strong. The group began in 1970 when Jerry Garcia was transitioning the Grateful Dead into country and folk territory.

Dead & Company | Albany, NY | Review

I had no idea what to expect with John Mayer on lead taking on the biggest shoes to fill in music -- but I made it to Dead & Company’s first show and entered Albany’s Times Union Center with an open mind.  
 

TAUK | Fox Theater | 10/17/15 | Review

In Colorado there is an insatiable hunger for modern music. Bars, clubs and venues are taping into that hunger by offering shows in genres that in years past would have been met with rebuke and dislike. However it is clear that times have changed. TAUK as a band represent those changes.
