Hi Adam - thank you for asking, I'd love to!!
As a matter of fact, I've got a few shows lined up this July. Nothing in the actual Denver area but I have shows in Ft Collins, Grand Junction (not Denver at all, I know) a house concert in Del Norte and my personal favorite, Festival In The Clouds in Alma (south of Breckenridge). Like I said, not technically in the Denver area but at least I'm in Colorado ;) I hope you can make one of these shows and when you do I hope you will introduce yourself. It's always nice to hook up with people from the Twin Cities when I'm out of town.
You can find dates, times and venue info at http://lojorusso.com/gigs.html
See you when I get there,
That's a good question! It depends on what you define as "CDs I've made".
My personally produced CD's are thusly and in order of appearance:
Understated, Dreamlifecolour, Stoic Abandon, Little White Box and the soon to be released, No Scars, No Stories.
Then there's the CDs I've done with my bands - in order of band appearance:
Cats Laughing>> Cats Laughing (self-titled debut), Another Way To Travel
Gallowglass Irish Trio>> No Irish Need Apply, Taking On Water, Hello Farewell, All Our Best and some bootlegs
Lojo Russo & Funks Grove>> Live Goats Watching, The EP, Albuminium Blue and Lick the Blarney
I've also appeared on side projects with a number of other musicians like Lorraine A Malena's, "Mirror, Mirror", the Flash Girls', "Play Each Morning Wild Queen" and I recall a tune on Adam Stemple's, "3 Solid Blows to the Head" but that may just be wishful thinking. Hmmm... seems I've done a bit of this in my day, yeh?
Happy St Patrick's day!!
Peace~ Joan Ervin
Welcome to the QCA! Funny thing is, I'm kind of a newcomer myself (MN) but I know there's a few things to do around here. We have many organizations and events like the Red Ribbon Dinner in Jan and QCPride in June.
Of course the MCC church is always a good place to start to meet and become part of the community. And as for gigs, well I'll be on stage at the QCPride Festival this June as well as wineries all over Iowa (who knew we could have a "grape" season?). If you're looking ahead to planning out your summer please make your way over to my website - you can click to my schedule and see what I've got planned for the rest of the year so far.
Here's the links - happy hunting! ~Lojo
