Miscellaneous Rumbles

So He Loaded Up The Truck And Moved To . . .

Denver!"

Shannon received a job offer out there after considerable looking in DC and several other places nationwide. Both of our DC gigs tanked about a year in. DC was a noble experiment and quite an adventure . . . we ended up liking it way more than either of us expected. But now it's time to get back to a more chill environment (not a 420 reference) w/ serious mountains and backpacking nearby. We both miss the Pacific Northwest, so we figure this is a sufficient substitute with a bit more sun.

"I'm so glad we had this time together, just to have a laugh and sing a song . . ."

Sounds like fun! Hope you like your new digs.

Always an adventure! All the best.

By all advanced reports (Shannon did some recon last week and found us place), it should be a good fit.

Now I have to figure out what to do musically . . . I think I want to do my own thing again, after spending the last 18 months in a cover band. We'll see. I just need to stay open to the possibilities and see what come through my transom.

Hope ya had fun around here -- I'm not going anywhere (too old)

Congratulations on finding your way back west again, Andy. I wish you a safe move.

I would say keep all of your musical options open once you get to Denver. There are undoubtedly a lot of clubs in Denver, and certainly some up in the direction of Boulder/Louisville near CU. You may need to wear some spurs and chaps, but you'll be playing! I find a greater energy in playing music with other people rather than as a single. However, I still do play an occasional gig as a single. Just see what comes your way.

Good luck on your move, Andy!

Thanks, Bob! I am hardly a solo act, so I likes some people around me. If I can find a good (or good enough) lead guy to team up with that would be a good start . . . working up to a four-piece is my goal. I have 25 or so giggable originals for a base, and I'll fill in beteeen the blanks with some tried and true covers in my bag of tricks. I need to start writing again, though.

I lived just outside of Denver for three years back in the late 90s. Love that town! Best of luck with the move!

I know it's been a while (a long while), but any insights into the local music scene?

My brother lived in Conifer. I was stationed at Lowry AFB back in '69 and would've liked to have spent more time there. I like the area, and the mountains. Been to a few shows at Red Rocks---one of the best places ever to see/hear a band.

We already have tickets to a show at Red Rocks . . .

Forget Red Rocks, the real attraction is Casa Bonita! I presume you'll be eating there seven days a week.

I grew up outside DC but I've been in Colorado for 40+ years, and in the hills west of Denver for 6 years.

Welcome, brother.
