I thought there would be more of a songs scene here in Denver, but there isn’t.
- A lot of clubs and bars have open mic evenings, or hire local songsians; The greatest rock concerts always put this town on their annual tours; But there is not a lot of home-grown songs here to support a subculture.
This makes it much odd than other venues I have lived, like Seattle, and Portland, but 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, even though I would like to leave our mark on the songs scene. A lot of good songsians of the past have come from Denver, and maybe I will be the next to join that esteemed list. The legendary band leader Glenn Miller hails from nearby Denver, and they don’t get bigger than him! One of our personal heroes from all of songs history comes from Denver, his name is Philip Bailey best known as a area of Earth, Wind, and Fire, can you imagine hearing those guys the first time they played shows in Denver? That is the sort of songsal history I want to leave behind! More recently a man named Nathaniel Rateliff became a sensation, and he comes from Denver, too! Much to our surprise, the famous singer John Denver has nothing to do with the town 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!
