Bands around Colorado in February

ZZ ward plays multiple shows in Colorado in FebruaryBy Jeff Shibley Featured in February: ZZ Ward, That 1 Guy, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Zoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience, Pimps of Joytime, MarchFourth, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett and J Boog - Jesse Royal – Etana

February’s Bands around Colorado blog has been especially fun to write. High caliber talent performing at multiple Colorado venues in February really shows how special the live music scene in Colorado is. If you can’t make a show at one venue, you can travel a short distance and see the band somewhere else. Or, if you’re really a fan, you can hit all the shows. Here’s some bands playing at multiple venues around Colorado in February.

 

ZZ Ward
Scorching guitar, wailing harmonica riffs, powerful captivating vocals and a constant effort to connect with her audience describes a ZZ Ward show. She’s definitely a blues musician but it’s more like Stevie Ray Vaughn type blues that rocks more than it swings. From amusicblog.com: “First off, ZZ Ward knew how to work her crowd, catering to her demographic flawlessly. She appeared Amy Winehouse-esque, with the same bluesy attitude and jazzy ensemble band, and onstage she was clearly in her element, enjoying herself immensely.” You’ll enjoy the show just as much.

That 1 Guy
So can a 1 Guy band really pull off a live show? That 1 Guy has been a consistent favorite at such festivals as: Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Big Day out, All Good, Bella, High Sierra, Summer Meltdown, Montreal Jazz Festival, and many more. His shows feature him playing an instrument he call the “Magic Pipe”. Musicfeed.com says “The sounds he gets out of the instrument is akin to a bass guitar mixed with an electric guitar and percussion instruments all with one whack, one pluck or one strike of his Magic Pipe.” Read more   Judah Gold of Relix Magazine says“When That 1 Guy is in town, his funky bass-n-drum grooves are so bombastic they rattle china cabinets and dissolve kidney stones well into the next zip code.”

Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Chris Robinson Brotherhood in Concerts in Colorado in FebruaryFormer Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson has grown into a fave throughout the state of Colorado and it looks like he’ll win the prize for the most shows here in February. A few weeks ago, Robinson announced he was ready to sing the Black Crowes again, but that won’t happen until May when he hits the road with As the Crowe flies (That story for another time). Robinson is a rock star who got sideways with the middle men in the business when he was in the Black Crowes. He has structured CRB to give him the freedom to control his music and, I think to re-find happiness and satisfaction in the music business again. It looks and sounds like he’s having a blast playing with CRB atover a 100 dates a year in theatres and intimate venues.

Zoso - the ultimate Led Zeppeling Experience in Concerts in ColoradoZoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience
It’s a pretty big deal to cover Led Zeppelin. Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience attracts big crowds everywhere they play so they must  be doing something right. Don’t expect to hear an exact replica of Zeppelin (Bonham, Paige, Plant and Jones are one of kind). Zoso pulls it off and keeps the spirit of Led Zeppelin alive which is great for millions of fans who never got to make the Zeppelin experience.

Apr 5, Boulder Theater, Boulder County

Pimps of Joytime in Concerts in ColoradoPimps of Joytime
It could be one of the best band names of all time, so why wouldn’t you check out one of their shows. They describe themselves as an intersection of Brooklyn's indie music scene, New Orleans funk and San Francisco soul. Eric Frank (Cojam.net) reviewed a show last year when the Pimps of Joytime opened for MarchFourth Marching band (next up). He said, “I would be remiss not to mention Brian J’s killer enveloped guitar tones, Mayteana Morales’s on-point percussion and soulful backing vocals and that moment near the end of the set that saw Kim Dawson belt a note that stretched from her place on the stage to the high heavens, a moment that actually brought tears to my eyes. The band has passion and they put that passion diligently into their funky craft.” Read More

MarchFourth band in Concerts in Colorado in FebruaryMarchFourth 
Arranging music for four musicians takes some effort. Arranging music for more than ten musicians requires some extraordinary talent and MarchFourth has plenty of that. Funky rhythms, combined with a circus acrobatics and outstanding costumes make MarchFourth a superior live show band. You can try to keep up with them on the dance floor, but don’t feel bad if you need a break. In the aforementioned article, Eric Frank describes the MarchFourth vibe well; “Sometimes, more musicians on stage means more chaos, more mistakes within the performance. Not so for MarchFourth!. The arrangements are clearly thought out and precise which, in turn, create soundscapes that encapsulate and challenge its crowd. This is my kinda band. Likewise, stage antics and outside visuals can sometimes detract from the music, or perhaps act as a substitute to anything truly unique or, well… good. Again, this is not the case with MarchFourth!” Read More

Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett in Concerts in Colorado in FebruaryRobert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett
Everyone in their home state of Texas knows Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett’s friendship dates back to their college days at Texas A&M in the 70s. These two legendary singer songwriters are playing together again, just like they did on their porch back then. Two guys and two guitars making music and telling stories.

J Boog in Concert in Colorado this FebruaryJ Boog - Jesse Royal – Etana
J Boog is a multi-talented artist. He’s an R&B singer, a rapper and an actor. He mixes his hip hop R&B thing with rich reggae sounds and the music is so smooth. The music is also unique, danceable and features thought provoking lyrics you’d expect from a hip hop guy whose roots are in the real world. J Boog is the real deal. Jamaican reggae singers Jesse Royal and Etana are also on the bill.
