Bruce Hayes: News Archive

July 13, 2017

Greetings from Howard Colorado…We're back and you know what that means...do you really? If so LEMME NO. Wurking on a new computer so peas excuse any hippos. And a great Spring it was...celebrated my b'day jamming with buds at Camp Out for the Cause in BV - great festival, well organized, beautiful spot, not unlike Meadowgrass, another great fest where I got to play solo and with Milo Hayes Meld (see pic) who have recorded four songs and released this ol' chestnut on Soundcloud:

https://soundcloud.com/user-646061742/bridge

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Much has come to pass since we last addressed this list back in November. Welcome to the age of crazy. We just produced a show at the historical Coaldale Schoolhouse with Grant Gordy and Ross Martin (see pic by Ben Knight). They are taking the flat-picking guitar duo to new heights! Great turnout. Hope to see y'all again for Jeff Black on 3/23, and Don Richmond, April 15. Had a Helluva good time opening for David Lindley in Denver - very greasy indeed. Love that man. Check out the new vid for Christ by Mel Lee:

Hayes' Gits & Gigs Winter Quarterly 2016

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Take solace in the knowledge that this is not another Black (hole) Small Business (hands) Cyber (attack) Giving (you a headache) correspondence. This is merely a quasi-quarterly endorsement of all things musical pertaining to one Bruce Hayes. However, 2 for 1 on all CD and Cassette purchases till the end of the year! Sorry, couldn't resist.
2016 is setting all kinds of records for the number of famous musicians who have done crossed o'er. For some great insite into the life and politics of Dr. Ralph Stanley check out Ron Thomason's latest rant at:
http://drybranchfiresquad.com/oldquarterlyinstallments.asp

Researching Leonard Cohen I came upon a quote that blew my mind. Check out this link, scroll down to Recording, read 4th paragraph that begins "Dance Me..." wow! While you are there support wiki's fund drive (before the pending administration eliminates internet neutrality):

Greetings from Howard Colorado… June was the busiest month in sometime, only to be rivaled by July. Salida's whitewater festival, Fibark was a blast. I sat in with Peter Rowan and Taarka (see pic) and managed to grab my Tele for a couple tunes with Robert Randolph. Rapidgrass Bluegrass fest was spectacular as well. I assumed the roll of "Kernel Tweener" playing mini sets betwixt the main acts that included my Mandolin Mentor David Grisman pictured here holding "Crusher":  



There's more great times on tap for July including the Thunderbird's Bluegrass fest and a show with The Subdudes. Stay tuned for places, dates, times, and links:

Greetings from Howard Colorado…
 
This month's photo below was taken Saturday by Meghan Buzan at Bluegrass on the River in Salida. The Bassist is my old pal, Dennis "DJ" Jung of Aspen. We started playing together 35 years ago. Both new to Colorado, we formed a band, Scott Pole & the Headplants, and have played with semi-regular abandon ever since...and that's Henry working on his G chord. We had a great set. Thanks to everyone there. Speaking of semi-regular, I'll be doing a couple weekly gigs this month, Wednesdays outdoors at Benson's in Salida and Thursdays at the new improved Lariat in Buena Vista. I haven't attempted this since the 90's so help me out. I'll be mixing it up with various and sundry. Lots of great Festivals on the way...Let's Go.

Greetings from Howard Colorado…We are kicking off the Gnu Year with a few concert-like shows in great spaces. The beautiful new F Street Gallery will host a solo acoustic evening this Saturday. I'll be bringing Free The Honey, those Songbirds of CB, over for a combined show in the historic Coaldale Schoolhouse. Then I'll be heading down Ridgway way for an evening in Chipeta's Kiva, one of the coolest performance spaces ever. This will be my first official show since it's grand opening many moons ago. This monthly series will include catering by Honga of Telluride. 

Want more? How 'bout a Rock & Roll Luau! The owners of The Lariat in Buena Vista just go back from Maui and are psyched to serve up some Hawaiian Beer and have a grass skirt contest to the seventies sounds of H.E.B. Don't forget your sun screen!

Greetings from Howard Colorado… This weekend marks the 10th anniversary of my first December Birthdays Bash at the Thunderbird, a celebration for several prominant figures in Florissant including bar owner Russ, and handyman Dave. Traditionally the event begins with a potluck featuring several prominant figures in Florissant including Bear, Elk, and Heffalump. Then several prominant figures from the regional Rhythm & Blues scene take the stage to jam the night away. This year's lineup, dubbed the Hatfield Hayes Hybrid, will feature members of Salida's Mo'Shampipple including Lil' Ernie. This IS a public event with Holiday Cheer, cold beer, and Reindeer...stew.
We end the year with a Hayes Epp & Bones double header. 
Happy Hollerdaze...

Martin, Bones, and I will be at the Vic Thanksgiving weekend.

July 8, 2015

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Last week I had a great time pickin' n' grinnin' at the Rapidgrass fest. Several acts covered Grateful Dead tunes in honor of their 50th Anni and final shows. Most notably Same Bush raved on "Tennessee Jed" and Ronnie McCoury sang "Loser". I added the ol' "Dark Hollow" to my set with Billy Cardine and Carl Mienecke jamming along. Great fest, I'll be back. 

We watched the last Dead show streamed outdoors in Howard, up on the hill where they do do the boogie, with my big speakers a-thumpin'. I was particularily moved by the encore, "Attics of my Life". It's on Youtube...great ender.
This month's photo below: Blues artist Ben Powell stopped by the 1st Chair Chalet to plug his prototype National Reso into a few Valco amps. I'm an adamant fan and collector of all things Valco. Here's a little history on that quirky company:

Greetings from Howard Colorado…Where big Spring precipitation turns the mountains white insuring adequate irrigation and river recreation for the Summer sensation causing mass elation at this elevation. See pick of peak peaking out through cloudular condensation below this disertation. 

It's time again for that Memorial jumpstart. Salida celebrates with a Free Bluegrass Fest featuring the who's who of Colorado Acoustic Combos. At night the Loud Band vibrates the walls of the Vic. 
Then let's take flight for a romp around the ol' foot-stomping grounds of Northeast Mountain towns. True Upstate NY for a show with those police of re-upholstery, the brothers Renderer, and the lone Larry Stone. It's been six long years since...the Recoverers first rocked the Recovery Lounge...and even longer since I visited my beloved Berkshires. October 2006, a house concert at the Foehl's. Curt will once again host my return with a concert/party in a backyard in downtown North Adams. The once semi-seedy now mega-funded art friendly hysterical district was home to the "Sober Up or Diner"...and that is my association with this destination so quit your procrastination, pick up some libation, and join the gyration creation...

Greetings from Howard Colorado…This month I'll be doing a couple of "sit down house concert" style shows in the Howard area. The historic Coaldale Community Building is launching a series in an effort to bring tunes to Pleasant Valley. I'm honored to provide the kickoff show this weekend. Trina will provide the Posole. The Book Haven Concerts also offer light dinner, dessert, and libations. It'a good to RSVP these shows if you plan to attend but feel free to just show up s'il vous plait. 

In StratoBassto news, a connection has been made between my favorite invention and my favorite childhood TV show. The Wild Wild West soundtrack extensively used the original 6 string Bass Guitar, a '56 Danelectro UB-2 played by Bill Pitman. Dweeb with me one time.
The Pic below: A hedonistic time was had in Telluride for the closing day and the Ski Patrol Party that ensued. Here's everyone's favorite pirate, Hawkeye (who is now his own foundation, check out GoHawkeye.com) waving the Jolly Rodger on Joint Point.  Let's dweeb again...

October 2, 2014

Greetings from Howard Colorado… September included some highlights that bear mentioning. Amazing music was made during the first San Juan String Fest at Chipeta in Ridgway. The highlight was an impromtu  fireside pick with Rory Hoffman, an amazing blind flat picker from John Cowan's band who rages on Western Swing tunes while fretting the guitar overhand and backwards, lap style! Epic Jam...and while that word gets overused, it would apply to the 32 mile Mountain Bike ride I managed to complete in just under 7 hours with Jim Kahn who stated it was the best ride ever, Monarch Crest trail to Silver Creek Trail. Come try it and stay at our Chalet conveniently located along the shuttle route (links below). I hope to try it again soon but there's snow up there now and the air is suddenly crisp with Fall. This month's pic harkens back to warmer times, jamming with my favorite band, Halden Wofford & the Hi Beams at Crested Butte Arts Fest last August (wrong hat)...and now here is the rest of the story...
