Here’s a treat for your St. Patrick’s Day. Thanks to our friend and archivist Steve, we have a full show for you from Boulder Band Hot Soup. This video was shot last week on 3-14-13 and it is hi-def, tripod mounted camera with a soundboard patch.
Fronted by local guitarist and shred meister Matt Flaherty, this band travels around Colorado, performing gigs and melting faces. Also on board in Hot Soup is bassist Brian Adams (DeadPhish Orchestra, Great American Taxi), Mirco Altenbach on Saxophone and Vocals and Ryan Sapp on drums. Here is the full show video, enjoy.
If you are looking for something to do in Boulder on Saturday, look no further than the Fox Theatre and one of my favorite local bands Jet Edison. This will be the bands first time headlining the Fox but not the first time blowing minds. This is the grand re-opening weekend for the Fox and the band has some surprise guest in store.
From the bands website: “We could not be more excited for our first headlining spot at the Fox Theatre on Sat. August 4th! It is also the venue’s Grand Re-Opening Weekend after being closed all Summer for repairs, so you know we have a lot planned!”
“This is going to be a crazy night complete with many suprises and musical guests, including Matt Flaherty (guitar) and Mirco Altenbach (sax) from Hot Soup, as well as the Brass Taxmen Horn Section and many more.”
If you want to check out some live recorded Jet Edison, here is a show you can DOWNLOAD.
Another great bonus is the warm up band Rocktin Grove. This is another local band that is on top of their game and a very fun to watch.
Check out this cool Jet Edison Video and I will see you at the show!
The PKB Electric “Winter Beach Party” was one of those events you might miss if you blinked… and it is too bad if you did. Held in early January, on a snowy Saturday night it marked the first time the Pete Kartsounes Band headlined the Fox Theatre. The middle of winter beach party was a great idea and even offered up performances by Smack Thompson and Dr. Phil Good. The evening had a special feeling with many of the audience in festive beach attire.
For this special night Pete had assembled a great group of local talent including Matt Flaherty – Guitars (Hot Soup), Paul Murin – Guitars (Phix), Phil Johnson – Organ, Keys, Trumpet, Vox (Jet Edison), Brian Adams – Bass (Great American Taxi) and Ryan Sapp – Drums (PKB).
We sat on this video since January due to Pete leaving the mainland and heading to the Islands where he was inspired and worked on even more music projects. Pete met another musician created a group named Manala and made an album. From Manala’s Facebook page “Within 3 weeks of meeting one another on Kauai, Pete Kartsounes & Katlyn Dawn have created their first album.”
Well Kartsounes is back now and gigging in the area, catch him if you can because soon he is hitting the road for festival season. For more information visit www.petekmusic.com.

Here is a cool grab from the PKB-Electric Winter Beach Party held at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 7. This was a special electric jam with special guest from bands like Great American Taxi, Jet Edison and Hot Soup. This is just the last portion of a 12 min song called “Unified.” Enjoy.
