Famous musicians from Denver

I thought there would be more of a music scene here in Denver, but there isn’t.

A lot of clubs and bars have open mic nights, or hire local musicians.

The biggest rock concerts always put this city 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 places 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, but I would like to leave my mark on the music scene. A lot of great musicians 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 my personal heroes from all of music history comes from Denver, his name is Philip Bailey best known as a part of Earth, Wind, and Fire. 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 man named Nathaniel Rateliff became a sensation, and he comes from Denver, too! Much to my surprise, the famous singer John Denver has nothing to do with the city of Denver, he just used the name because he liked it better than his birth name of John Deutchendorf. I can’t say that I blame him!

Why I settled down in Denver

With my experience I could easily become an executive in one of these companies, and never have to travel outside of Denver again

I work as a quality control consultant for a very prominent chain of cannabis dispensaries. This is essentially a dream job, in which I travel from place to place and sample locally sourced blends of cannabis. As much as I enjoy my work, after a few years even the world’s best job can wear you down. I had to travel roughly 40 to 45 weeks a year, which left very little time for a social life or anything else. When it was time to come off the road and settle down, I decided to move to Denver, Colorado. There were a few reasons that I picked Denver, the biggest of which was the local cannabis community. With my resume and extensive history in the cannabis industry I could have my pick of any number of great jobs in Denver. I love the industry, and can’t imagine a life without cannabis, but I am tired of the travel, so Denver seemed like the smartest choice for my career. Seven different major cannabis dispensary chains are based out of Denver or the nearby areas. I don’t mean seven dispensaries, I mean the headquarters for seven major corporations, are all based near Denver. This means that just on the administrative and logistical side, the cannabis industry provided thousands of jobs to the Denver area. With my experience I could easily become an executive in one of these companies, and never have to travel outside of Denver again. I have a lot to figure out, but I am stoked about my future in Denver, Colorado.

Electricity was down for three hours last night

Last night the temperatures were close to 100° even when the sun was starting to set.

It was one of the longest heat waves on record.

Temperatures were over 100° for 6 and 1/2 hours straight. That is a record-breaking temperature cycle for the Phoenix, Arizona area. During the crazy heat wave, our electricity was out for 3 hours. All of the Phoenix and metropolitan areas were without power during this time. We had to conserve energy on the grid. During the time when the power was out, there was no electricity and that means no air conditioning. It was miserable inside of the house without air conditioning and I thought we were going to perish in the Arizona heat. When the power finally came back on, I was very surprised that the AC unit didn’t start right up. I checked the thermostat and the Machine clearly should have been running. I checked the machine three times and I tried to toggle the switch. Nothing helped at all, so I decided to contact a repair service in phoenix. The Phoenix AC repair service was flooded with calls. I wasn’t the only person having trouble with the AC unit. The lady on the phone gave me some troubleshooting tips and told me to try a couple of things before I called back. She urged me to fix the problem on my own, because it was going to take quite a while before one of the service technicians was going to be able to help me out. I tried a couple of things that the lady suggested, but they didn’t work so I had to call back and make an appointment with a repair technician.

The hotel in Orland park was cheaper than the place in Chicago

My wife wanted to see some friends who were staying in the city.

I thought that we could make the two and a half hour drive and then come home at the end of the day.

My wife wanted to get a hotel room. At first she said that we should stay in chicago. I knew that the cost of a hotel was going to be really high. I went online to look at hotel prices and other places that were halfway between our home and the destination. I found several hotels in Orland park, illinois. Orland Park was about halfway between the two places and they have several different hotels available. My wife agreed to a cheaper hotel in Orland Park. We checked into our hotel before we met with her friends. We drove the rest of the way to our destination. On our way, the air conditioner in the car stopped working. I was totally shocked and surprised. I did not anticipate having problems with the air conditioner. By the time we arrived, my shirt was drenched with sweat and my wife had frizzy hair. I’m sure it is a story that we will be telling in 50 years, but we were both embarrassed by the whole debacle and my wife wanted to turn around and go home. I would not let her call and disappoint her friends with an excuse. They were only in the city for a few days and my wife had made plans with them several weeks in advance. They were all excited to get together and see each other.

The basketball game was worth the miserable drive

Jack and I drove 3 hours to Phoenix to watch the Suns play basketball.

I would have driven another three if we had to.

Jack won tickets on the radio when he was driving close to Phoenix the other day and I told him that I wanted to go to the game with him. The two of us took the day off work so we could drive to the location of the game in Phoenix. The 3-hour drive wasn’t exactly fun, because Jack doesn’t have any air conditioning in his car. I knew that it was going to be a hot and uncomfortable drive without air conditioning, but there was no way that I was going to give up an opportunity to see the Phoenix Suns play basketball. Because we left in the middle of the day, it was still very hot outside. Temperatures were 93° and we could not roll the windows down because there were a lot of bugs outside. We had to wait almost an hour before we made it past the swarm of bugs that would have come inside of the car. I tried to turn on the air conditioner a couple of times, but Jack told me that it has been broken for months and he has tried everything. I would have killed for AC on our way to the game. The drive was miserable, but it was worth it to see the game. On our way back home, we didn’t have to worry about the temperature control and we were pretty excited because our Phoenix team won the basketball game.

We saw a marijuana shop nearly everyday

My partner wanted to go to Las Vegas for a long time.

We live on the east coast, so it’s not exactly accessible for us, and it is a plane ride and quite a bit of money.

It costs a lot to fly to Las Vegas and then you have to factor the hotel expenses in as well, after there were restrictions for covid, no 1 was writing on the aircrafts, however my partner and I decided to go to Las Vegas for the first time. We got a good deal at a hotel in the neighborhood and the tickets for our flight were honestly sufficient as well. My partner and I were honestly surprised by some of the things that we saw when we opted to go to the Las Vegas strip, but one of the most shocking things was the amount of marijuana dispensaries. It seemed prefer there was a marijuana dispensary on every block of the neighborhood and every single street corner. If it wasn’t a marijuana dispensary, then it was a diner, bar, or tourist attractions. I don’t know what I was expecting when we opted to go to vegas, even though I suppose it was absolutely something more than we experienced. My partner seemed to have a good time… She gambled a lot and sat downstairs while I was upstairs in the lounge. I absolutely didn’t mind enjoying pigskin and other interests while she gambled. I had the opportunity to bet on a couple of games too, even though I could have done that from home. I would go back, however only if someone else was paying for my trip.
