Greetings from Howard, Colorado...At last, following a prolonged dry spell, here comes the rain. Bobby would be proud.

February 17, 2011

Greetings from Howard, Colorado...

It's Winter, now it's Summer, now it's Winter again. I can't keep up, but I know we broke all records for cancellations due to weather earlier this month. Lo siento to folks who came out to Front Range BBQ for the initial canceled gig and then the canceled rescheduled gig. You just can't heat a party tent when it's below 0. It'll be in the 20s next week, I think we'll go for it. Arnie had a great run of benefit shows. We couldn't make our set due to severe weather but hope to throw a benefit of our own for Arnie soon. It's time for Pati's annual birthday bash at the Crystola. This month's pic is from '09, sittin' in with Drew Emmitt @ Nedfest, photo by Mysto...and now here's the rest of the story:

AUGUST NEWS 2010

Greetings from Howard, Colorado! 

The ongoing saga of Life and Death in Howard continues...as they lower the river to recover a missing raft guide,  the Hayes family is anticipating the arrival of a new member. The due date is let's see...today! We'll keep you posted. Along with that drama, this is a huge weekend for BH as director, performer, soundman, and sit-in for the entertainment at the Crested Butte Arts Festival. Hope to see you there if I can make it...Here's the press release:
 

The 38th Crested Butte Arts Festival
July 31 and August 1, 2010
Entertainment schedule
Ragged Mountain Stage 

 SATURDAY   July 31
11:00    Bruce Hayes & Steve Snyder     
12:00    Michael Taylor -Juggler
1:00     The New Dolorians 
2:00     Blue Canyon Boys 
3:00     Bill McKay Band

SUNDAY   AUGUST 1
11:00     Russ Chapman
12:00     Michael Taylor -Juggler
1:00       Arnie J. Green
2:00       Rhythm of the Dons
3:00       Strolling Scones

The 38th annual Arts Festival will feature live music and juggling on the Ragged Mountain Stage located at the intersection of 3rd Street and Elk Avenue, across from the food court.  Entertainment is scheduled from 11:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday and  Sunday.  The entertainment area will include the new, improved Beer and Wine Pavilion.  This year’s Fest promises a stellar lineup of national and regional talent.

Saturday afternoon’s Street dance will be hosted by the Bill McKay Band.  The super soulful Leftover Salmon Key man's 4-piece band will be filling the block with Southern jam. A veteran of Band du Jour, Derek Trucks Band, as well as LOS, McKay is touring the state in support of a new self-titled CD.  His band's lineup is a who's who of Colorado's Jam Band elite. Saturday 3:00pm
www.myspace.com/billmckay1

Each year the Fest features a fine traditional Bluegrass band and this year we picked a winner.  Winners of the Telluride Bluegrass festival's band contest and a close second at Rocky Grass, The Blue Canyon Boys have rocketed to the top of the Colorado Bluegrass scene. With 3 great CDs and numerous festival slots, the quartet of Drew Garrett, Gary Dark, Jason Hicks, and Jeff Scroggins are definitely a vocal group with instruments…and suits. Saturday 2:00pm
http://www.bluecanyonboys.com

For the hi-noon kid's show this year it's Durango's Michael Taylor and his Jaw-dropping, side-splitting juggling show. This amazing, heart warming, energetic, fun-filled juggling extravaganza will include rubber chickens, flaming torches, jumpropes, machetes and more! A very happy character indeed. Each day at 12:00 and an afternoon tweener
http://www.catchitquickjuggling.com

History states that The Strolling Scones were discovered at the bottom of Blue Mesa reservoir where they had been frozen since the 60's.  Thoroughly thawed, the 5 beatniks now reside in Paonia and continue to pump out psychedelic retro-rock pop R&B stylings, clad in their best pre-poly patterns. The summer of love continues Sunday 3:00pm
www.strollingscones.com

Warming up for the Scones is another great Paonia based quintet, Rhythm of the Dons.  This eclectic electric boogie band will get the street rocking with their mix of footstomping covers and soulful originals featuring Ellen Yvonne on vocals, flute, and sax, Joe Gogenola on keys and congas, Kenny Wallace on guitar, Sean Mobley on bass, and Bob McNair on drums. Sunday 2:00pm
http://www.myspace.com/rhythmofthedons

The New Dolorians are a combination of Dolores based bands, The Porchlights and The Lindells.  Two great bands that sound great together playing acoustic Alt-Country Americana. Saturday 1:00pm
http://porchlights.20m.com
http://lindellsmusic.com

Arnie J Green will invoke the heart and soul of Rhythm and Blues on Sunday with his mighty, gospel voice and down-home funky guitar. The best of Summit County award winner may be Colorado's best kept secret, but the unassuming Green likes it that way.  Wether performing solo, fronting his own band, playing Bass in the Bruce Hayes Band, or backing up Steve Kimock,  Arnie J Green stands for goosebumps. Sunday 1:00pm
www.arniejgreen.com

Russ Chapman is a modern rendition of an old-time tradition. The one-man medicine show appeals to all ages with his cache of cool instruments and zany voice noises. Chapman stomps and sings highly original music drawn from the deep well of Americana.
He is one of those rare performers who can keep an audience on the edge of its ears. Hailed in Nashville as a 'songwriter's songwriter,' and now residing in Paonia, Russ has recorded and performed with multiple Grammy winners, including members of Ricky Skagg's Kentucky Thunder, Jim Lauderdale's band, and America's favorite cowboys- Riders in the Sky. Sunday 11:00am
www.russchapman.com/

Award winning multi-instrumentalist Bruce Hayes and big-voiced local favorite Steve Snyder will team up for their annual fest kickoff. Steve is Amereica's finest undiscoverable country singer with a voice that can hold it’s own with any Waylon Willie Johnny Merle out there.   He will be joined by Hayes, entertainment host, flyin’ fingered freak, and world's only Stratobassto player. Saturday 11:00am
www.brucehayes.com

In addition to the main stage entertainment, Andrew Taher of Andean Nation will play South American flutes in the Mabuhay garden at 4th and Elk.

The rest of the month is mostly private events but here's a couple I hope you can make:

Greetings from Howard, Colorado! 

Check out the view from our back yard yesterday (below). Nothing like green grass, fresh snow, and Doe. Speaking of fresh, we are bringing back the ol' Ragged Mountain Ramblers name with a bold new all-star lineup. Our first gig is May 30 in Salida sharing the bill with the amazing Heidi Clare and her cohort, Lonesome Cowboy Hobo Wyoming Slim. It's a jam packed memorial weekend in Salida with 3 days of music at the fairgrounds and 2 days in the park. I'll be wearing lots of hats going from electric rocker at the bike rally to bluegrass boy for the Rotary and sound guy and...Now here's the rest of the story:

Greetings from Howard, Colorado!  Spring is afoot.  A foot of snow that is!  Not really but signs of Spring abound, like the numerous baby cows in the back 40.  Of coarse they were all accompanied by adults, however not all have been so lucky.  Last week they lost a calf to the lingering rigors of Winter, and as our saga of "Life and Death in Howard" continues, a merry feast ensued, enjoyed primarily by a large bald eagle who graced our vicinity for a couple days.
(see this month's pic).  Remember how back in the 70's,  the Bald Eagle was nearly driven to extinction by crazed cowboys with helicopters and rifles who were convinced the eagles were slaughtering their calves?  Well I do, and frankly it just ain't so... probably...but now I see how they got the idea.  Digress anyone? If you are still with me then check out this message forwarded to me by Alys Bruffy:
The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals. It takes less than a minute (about 15 seconds) to go to their site and click on the purple box 'fund food for animals for free'.  This doesn't cost you a thing.
Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.
Here's the web site!  Please pass it along to people you know.
I'll be playing a bunch of gigs in my favorite place on earth, the amazing San Juan Mountains of Colorado this month. The view from the Great room is simply stunning at sunset, and who can deny the local color of Silverton...hip hip cheerio one last Winter halabaloo here we go...

Greetings from Howard, Colorado!  Let it snow baby...gotta coupla local shows coming up.  I'll be debuting the latest StratoBassto prototype, StratoBassto prototype #3, or "Whitey", (see pic, "Basstovolution") and a very sexy Martin CW in a sexy tuning. 
There are several live videos that folks have posted on youtube, and this music video for "Feast" filmed during the Trans Rockies race last summer:
In other news, the Nestle Corporation managed to force there permit request past the Chaffee County Commissioners allowing them to truck vast quantities of spring water from Buena Vista to Denver to be bottled and sold under the Arrowhead brand. In the end it wasn't about wether it is a viable, sustainable idea, there was plenty of evidence to the contrary, it was fear of being sued by a giant multi-national that drove the pitiful local government to give up it's water. Check out this link about a movie everyone should see. 
To quote my good neighbors, "Good luck if Nestle comes your way, they are on a global hunt for fresh water resources, and they have the money and power to take them, unless an educated public pays attention."
Another good link:
These folks can sell you a nice, reusable metal bottle.  Needless to say, please don't support the bottled water industry, especially Arrowhead.
