  • "Never miss a Sunday show."  It's the age old Jamband adage that has been circulating through the scene for years and, while I've seen many Sunday shows over the years, until the past Sunday night when Greensky Bluegrass and Billy Strings played Red Rocks, I had never seen one that really proved the saying.

  • Last Tuesday night, Denver Botanic Gardens played host to a true legend of the songwriting world, Mr. John Hiatt.

  • Opening for Herbie must be daunting, but Kamasi not only filled that tall order, he crushed his set as if he were the main attraction.
