PICK OF THE WEEK: Warren Haynes Band – Tue & Wed, May 24th & 25 – The Ogden Theatre


Why You Should Go: Warren Haynes, a Grammy-winner and 9-time nominee, is ranked 23rd on Rolling Stone Magazine’s Greatest Guitarists Of All Time list. He is the front-man for Gov’t Mule and is also vocalist and guitarist in The Allman Brothers Band and The Dead.  This spring, for only the second time in his storied career, the hardest working guitarist in the business is releasing a studio album that features solo material that wasn’t written with The Allman Brothers or Gov’t Mule in mind. In fact, the appropriately titled Man In Motion focuses on the genre of music that is at the core of his musical being: soul. It’s an album that showcases his gravel-and-honey voice as much, or more, than his guitar playing, and one that he has been aching to make since he first opened his mouth and started to sing.

For the tour that supports Man in Motion Haynes hand-picked a band that include R&B kingpins Ron Johnson on bass, Terence Higgins on drums, Nigel Hall on keyboards and Grammy-nominated Ruthie Foster on background vocals.  Though much of the show will feature Haynes with his band, he has also set aside some time in the middle of the evening to sit down solo with an acoustic guitar and focus on the softer side of his music.  It’s sure to be an unforgettable evening of outstanding music with one of the best in the business.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
