Red Rocks Amphitheatre

I am one lucky music lovin gal!  For the past 15 years I have been seeing concerts at one of the countries most amazing venues...Red Rocks Amphitheatre!  If you have ever been there, you know this magic I speak of.  If you have not, then add it to your bucket list.  Each Summer they host a variety of amazing bands...there really is something for everyone. Personally I have been seeing Widespread Panic at Red Rocks just about every year for 16 years (they play 3 nights each Summer and while I used to do 3 night runs, these days I catch about 1 show a year).  I have also seen Further and just this past weekend caught the Devil Makes Three, Deer Tick, and Trampled by Turtles.  Panic is my first love, but I am excited to start branching out and seeing different shows at Red Rocks.  Life is short...follow your passion...and if that passion is seeing live music, then get yer butt to Red Rocks!  You can check out the event calender here.

Robert Randolph and the Family Band: HMM's Music Monday

Listen up. This week the Hip Mountain Mama crew is getting stoked for the upcoming NedFest. One band we are looking forward to seeing at this annual festival is Robert Randolph and the Family Band. The funky soul music is great for dancing and is a blast to see live. Keep reading to learn a bit more about this band or just listen to the two videos below.

Robert Randolph was trained on the pedal steel guitar and grew up performing in his church. His music is clearly inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughn, Earth, Wind & Fire and Sly & the Family Stone. Robert knows how to get you up on your feet with his upbeat jams. In fact, The Rolling Stone name Robert one of the 100 best guitar players of all time.

If you are in Colorado you'll definitely want to catch him this weekend at Nedfest. If not, check his website to see when he'll be in your area.

After you've watched these two videos, leave us a comment to let us know what you think about this Music Monday choice. Or tell us who you'd like to see featured next.

The Motet

We're feeling funky. It's time to feature another our favorite funk bands. This week we're spinning tunes from a local Colorado funk band called The Motet.

The long story is that Suzy and I used to see a local Boulder, CO band called Skin back in the mid 1990s. When that band stopped playing our local bars we discovered the drummer had started a new band called the Dave Watts Motet. Fast forward a number of years and The Motet has grown into a legit improvisational funk band. Despite many lineup changes over the years, these guys have developed an unique style with roots in funk, afrobeat, disco, electronic music, and soul that has earned them gigs across the country and a spot on Jam Cruise.

If you've never listened to the funky beats of The Motet, listen to these videos then check their tour dates to see when they'll be in your area. It's a show you won't want to miss. Also, look them up on Spotify, Pandora or your local music store.
