Thursday night you can find me at the Fox Theatre checking out some of my favorite local musicians in the bands Smooth Money Gesture and the Matt Flaherty Band. I have been looking forward to this show since SMG announced their 30 plus stop tour with the Fox being one of their local dates. SMG played last night in Breckenridge and will play tonight at Hodi’s in Fort Collins.
As if checking out our local bands for a low low ticket price was not enough… bonus, SMG will be sharing the limelight with the band Kung Fu, a Jazz/funk/fusion quintet from New Haven.
I have already told you a bit about Smooth Money Gesture, I believe they are set to be one of the next big
bands from Nederland, Colorado. They would be worth the price of admission alone but then you add The Matt Flaherty Band and you have a party. Flaherty is the kick ass guitarist for the Pete Kartsounes Band (PKB) and Hot Soup. Now top all of that off with another set of high energy jams from Kung Fu and you have a recipe for a fantastic time!
I had a chance to catch some Kung Fu action last Friday when they warmed up for The Motet, their hard driving funky jazz lit up the stage at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom. But don’t take my word for it check out the small taste in the video below… and then get your full dose this Thursday at the Fox or if tonight at Hodi’s.
Here is some Smooth Money Gesture from last year… see you at the Fox!
