Been busy with other stuff lately (including the calendar)… so haven’t been writing here as much.
The news is this…
Roka Hueka is opening for the world-famous Wailers again. As in: Bob Marley & the Wailers, The Wailers. Last time we opened for them I got to the venue just in time to catch the door closing on their dressing room… Like: for their privacy. Not ours, you know? So, to break it down: without me on the inside. I was on the outside. I got to experience the sweet closing door.
AND THEN WE WENT ON STAGE AND CRUSHED IT!!!
But yeah… Didn’t meet them. Maybe this time…
And really: I got zero complaints. We shared the stage with The Wailers! And are about to do it again this Friday. Thaswussup…
Here’s the FB Event.
About a week ago I started putting together a Spotify play list with all the local Denver bands I could think of. …and now, with the help of some friends on Facebook, I’ve gathered over 600 songs (from numerous albums) and almost 40 hours worth of music including: metal, hip hop, rock, country, Latin, afrobeat, funk, ska, reggae, and other styles.
Click here for the play list
I think the best/funnest way to enjoy this is to open up the playlist and just hit “shuffle” until you find something you like. …and when you find something you like, the cool thing is that you can catch many/most of these artists performing right here in Denver.
I know I’m missing so much from this list (including the glaringly obvious)… So please help me out if you see something missing… I’m [mostly] looking for Denver or Colorado bands that’re actively writing and performing…
So far the artists include:
Call of the Void
Chella & The Charm
Colfax Speed Queen
Debajo del Agua
DJ Cavem Moetavation
Envy on the Coast
Gumbo le Funque
Jaden Carlson Band
Raven and the Writing Desk
Safe Boating is No Accident
Wheelchair Sports Camp
