I thought there would be more of a music scene here in Denver, however there isn’t, a lot of clubs plus bars have open mic days, or hire local musicians.
The greatest rock concerts constantly put this neighborhood on their annual tours, but there is not a lot of home-grown music here to support a subculture.
This makes it much different than other locales I have lived, enjoy Seattle, plus Portland, however on the other hand maybe that means Denver is wide open for me to conquer! I’m being dramatic, of course, I don’t want to “conquer” Denver, although I would enjoy to leave my mark on the music scene. A lot of good musicians of the past have come from Denver, plus maybe I will be the next to join that esteemed list. The legendary band leader Glenn Miller hails from nearby Denver, plus they don’t get larger than him! One of my personal heroes from all of music history comes from Denver, his name is Philip Bailey best known as a section of Earth, Wind, plus Fire, then can you imagine hearing those guys the first time they played shows in Denver? That is the sort of musical history I want to leave behind! More recently a guy named Nathaniel Rateliff became a sensation, plus he comes from Denver, too! Much to my surprise, the famous singer John Denver has nothing to do with the neighborhood of Denver, he just used the name because he liked it better than his birth name of John Deutchendorf, and i can’t say that I blame him!
