On Tour

Old Shoe en route to the Promised Land

Colorado sure does got it going on these days.  The current recreational economy boom has grown green.  Their blue & orange football team lasted longer than da Bears this season.  But believe it or not, Chicago does have something incredibly valuable to offer Colorado.

Umphrey's McGee | Fillmore Auditorium | 12/29/2013 | Review

There’s no doubt Colorado was the place to be this past New Years, and the three-night Umphrey’s McGee run at the Fillmore Auditorium was absolutely no exception. Night two of the stand featured plenty of bust-outs, sit-ins, and surprises that had the exuberant Denver crowd grooving from start to finish.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Boulder, CO | 12/28/2013 | Review

It was another really cold night in Boulder after night one of an amazing five night run tradition in the band’s hometown venue, the fabulous Boulder Theater. This band has grown so much in the last decade, and they deserve all the success that they achieve. About fifteen years ago, I was searching for a band to play at my wedding.

String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/31/2013 | Review

In 2012 String Cheese Incident threw their first ever New Years Eve Celebration in Colorado. It was a grand event that left Colorado fans hopeful for another hometown showdown.

Split Lip Rayfield | The Bottleneck | Lawrence, KS | NYE | Review

Rowdy, raucous, and filled to the brim.  That’s how Lawrence, KS rings in a new year.  Split Lip Rayfield killed it with a sold-out show at The Bottleneck for New Year’s Eve joined by Granny Tweed and The Sunflower Colonels.  With plenty of champagne to go around and barely any standing room, navigating this crow

String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/29/2013 | Review

The String Cheese Incident celebrated its 20th anniversary as a Boulder band during a three-day New Year’s Eve run at the 1st Bank Center. Out of all the big name jambands that got their start in the ‘80s and ‘90s, I can say with certitude that SCI has evolved the most from its incipient incarnation. On its first night, it opened with a Sgt.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Boulder, CO | 12/31/2013 | Review

New Year’s Eve 2013 was going to be a special night for the Colorado jamband scene before any notes were even played. String Cheese Incident was about to tie a bow on their 20th anniversary as a Boulder band. Yonder Mountain String Band would soon cap off their 15th year as a Nederland quartet. And for a certain faction of music lovers, recreational marijuana would become legal to purchase at the stroke of midnight.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Boulder, CO | 12/30/2013 | Review

Last September a devastating “100 Year Flood” about fifty years overdue devastated parts of Colorado, in particular Boulder County. The historic town of Lyons, a beautiful gateway town to Rocky Mountain National Park and precious wilderness was affected worse than most. The St. Vrain River and other waterways turned the town into a riverbed, destroying and displacing many homes and lives. One of the worst hits was the Planet Bluegrass Ranch. Festivarians celebrated their 41st Rockygrass Festival last summer a little over a month later the property was underwater.

String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/28/2013 | Review

Colorado’s String Cheese Incident is one of the few touring bands that draws so many loyal followers regardless of how rarely they actually perform. Cheese was touring over a hundred days a year in the early 2000s, as nationally traveled as any, with trips to the Caribbean, Costa Rica, and Mexico sprinkled in.  As the guys grew up, their families and different musical ambitions made rigorous touring less possible.
