Bruce Hayes: News Archive

April 30, 2014

 

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Land of UFOs - see pic. Boy howdy, happy Spring! You wouldn't guess it's off season judging by my gig schedule this month…I've got a couple One-Maniac-Band shows, a couple HAYES EPP & BONES classic rock outings, and several gigs with a real Bluegrass Band, RAGGED UNION, not to be confused with my own Ragged Mountain, and arguably less ragged. Geoff Union recently relocated to Colorado from Austin and he's been taking the regional Bluegrass scene by storm. I'm psyched to be providing some Mandolin on his endeavors this month. Memorial Day Super Weekend will be just that in Salida with HEB rocking the Vic late night, and the annual Bluegrass fest across the street in the park. Now here's the rest of the story…

Greetings from Howard Colorado…

Holy Moly, it's been nearly 3 months since I addressed this international group of enews recipients. I've been keeping the locals informed of gigs in the Salida area but haven't left town much (let me know if you'd like to be on the local gig list too). We've enjoyed a fat Winter for snowfall at Monarch Mountain, now it's time to come out of hibernation and see how some favorite parts of Colorado are fairing. I moved to Aspen from New England in 1981, so I'm psyched to return and debut at Aspen's premier Apres Ski bars. In '82 I moved down valley to Carbondale where I finished college and played in a legendary rock band, Scott Pole & the Headplants. Frank Martin and Dennis Jung (Scott Pole and DJ Olinsky) will join Boo Boo Headplant for a bit of a reunion in 'bonedale Friday. Then it's off to Telluride to debut the Bean and deja vu the annual ski patrol party. I'm hoping to see lots of old friends along the way. The Summer is shaping up, Bluegrass on the River in Salida next month, opening for Peter Rowan in Ridgway in July, changing the oil in the RV… Now here's the rest of the story:

Greetings from Garfield 
Colorado… 3 weeks into 2014 and I'm fine with it so far, hope you are too. This month's pic illustrates the sheer carnage and consummation that is Christmas. I'm fine with it.  We had a great time at Benson's in Salida last Saturday, jamming the Bluegrass with a couple new locals…could become a regular twang...and I'm fine with it.  The small print: I sometimes send last minute local gig announcements to folks in the Salida area. If you are not receiving these emails but would like to let me know.  The I-25 corridor will get a dose of the One Maniac Band this week. I'm hoping to see some ol' familiar faces as I skirt the Front Range:

Christmas Carnage

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Where an inch equals a foot if you follow the snow forecast. It's been dumping all day. The cows are white clouds on the frozen tundra as the afternoon temps drop into single digits… charming. If you do manage to venture out this weekend, I'll be debuting at the Historic Ute Inn, Woodland Park's oldest bar. I'll also be helping with a benefit at Salida High Thursday (5th) featuring Harper and Phoebe (the Powell sisters) with Ron Thomason and Heidi Clare. Special thanks to Pete and Joan Wernick for letting me drop in so that Waldo Otto could show me a few licks on the 8 String Steel! Plans are shaping up for a New Year's Bash at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Get a room! Need a minute? Take two, they're small…see you on the slopes if the visibility increases...

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Here's hoping the Full Beaver Moon (google it) finds you well. I made the cover of Colorado Central Magazine this month (see pic, cover man-boy). Check out the article on line at:  http://cozine.com/

Greetings from Howard Colorado… I enjoyed a couple mellow weeks following Ski season's tumultuous conclusion. It gave me some time get back into recording mode. We did some overdubs for Dave Bokel and produced a demo for New Folk. Now it's time to blast off! Hope to see you out there in the great blue white and green springtime wonder world.
Here's a good video from Apple Jam last week (Thanks Mel):

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Had a cathartic couple of Rock & Roll gigs with Hayes Epp & Bones last weekend. Here are videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_0kXqXPmPU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqGFuCOuZB4

I'll be touring the state this month as the One-Maniac-Band, solo, playing the StratoBassto, so low. Happy to be making a rare visit in my old hometowns of Boulder and Gold Hill. I had to cancel Bensons last month due to a high impact tree hugging experiment while surfing the steep and deep at Monarch. The leg is working better, though still quite colorful, and we've rescheduled the show. This month's pic taken at the 1st Chair in Monarch is titled "Cold Snow on a Hot tub". Now here's the rest of the story:

Greetings from Howard Colorado… I love these legal Stills that are springing up all over the mountains. Rum Stills, Whiskey Stills, Stephen Stills... Last month I had a great gig at Montanya Rum in Crested Butte. This week the One-Maniac-Band will be visiting 2 more Western Slope Stills. Remember, it may not be technically legal to dance but you are encouraged move about the showroom in a rhythmic fashion.

This month's pic is in tribute to late friend and photographer, Paul Gallaher, taken at my wedding in 2007 and now being used in the new poster.

Now here's the rest of the story...

Greetings from Howard Colorado…Where there is no fire at the moment. My friends were allowed to visit their home in the Mountain Shadows neighborhood of Colorado Springs yesterday, mainly to throw away the freezer contents, as there are no utilities. Close by is complete devastation. "The worst wildfire in Colorado history" took 2 lives and 350 homes. (see pic below, more pics at denverpost.com). This is an especially good time to head for high elevation…and catch a some live music. I will debut yet another incarnation of The Ragged Mountain Ramblers with a mini tour featuring a set at the illustrious High Mountain Hay Fever Bluegrass Festival. The new all-star lineup features Mark Morris on Guitar, Coleman Smith on Fiddle, Drew Garrett on Bass, and BH on Mandolin and Dobro. Now let's motor...

Greetings from Howard Colorado…My favorite place to perform for many years has been the Salida Cafe. I played there regularly before I moved to the Salida area and it was a huge influence on my decision to join this community not only because I loved to play there but because of all the great acts that Clark Roberts brought to town. The Cafe closed it's doors recently. To honor this great listening room and it's charismatic creator, myself and 5 national solo acts will hold a celebration concert in Salida's Riverside Park on Friday evening, June 8th. Lead by Megan Burtt, the lineup will include Gabrielle Louise, Michael Gulezian, Theresa Storch, and Justin Roth. After-party at Benson's! Check out the event on Facebook…and god bless Doc Watson. Now I've got to mow the lawn.

I'll be switching it up for Paddy's day this year, putting down the Mando and and picking' up the B-Bender Tele and Stand Steel with Alan & Martin Band (formerly Alan Pursell and the Pale Riders). We play the good country music, old style.

The newly reformed Bluegrass Quartet, Ragged Mountain Ramblers will be performing in Crested Butte this weekend. The Ramblers got their start with with weekly gigs in the Butte back in the 90's. Founded by Bruce Hayes and Les Choy (Gypsy Jazz Social Club), the band has had numerous members through the years most notably Jeff Reynolds of KVNF, and Michael Travis of the String Cheese Incident. Ow, I just dropped that name on my foot! We had a sell out show at the Crested Butte Center for the Arts in 2000 and released a live CD to document the event. In recent years the band has included Gene Libea of the Nashville Bluegrass Band, and Kieth Reed of Open Road. The current lineup features members of Grass It Up from Colorado Springs, winners of the Indy's best band for 2011 award.
