We’re thrilled to invite two first-time guests to America’s Soul Live at the Olde Town Pickin’ Parlor on Tuesday, May 15. Randy Chavez is an integral part of Denver’s vibrant music scene and Mark Cormican is busy making his mark on Colorado after a long career in the South.
Randy is a fixture in Colorado recording studios and took the stages of dozens of important Colorado and national venues (including Red Rocks six times!) as the guitarist for the iconic Denver band, Opie Gone Bad. A stellar musician, he has backed national performers since his teens including everyone from Bob Hope to Ella Fitzgerald, and even comedian Andy Kaufman. He has performed with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra for 20 years, accompanying guest artists ranging from Steve Vai to Bela Fleck. Although Randy is known for his work in virtually every variety of rock as well as classical music, his newest project, One Good Vice, teams him with songwriter and singer Greg Hartley in a progressive country vein that showcases amazing versatility. It’s a real treat to welcome Randy and Greg to the Pickin’ Parlor Stage.
Mark Cormican is a Kentucky transplant busy making Colorado his home. As part of that transition, he has hooked up with a host of the state’s best musicians (including Ernie Martinez and Johnny Neill) to produce his impressive new release, Family Tree, a collection of original songs that showcase his affection for traditional country, folk and Americana music. An exceptional country songwriter and great singer, Mark is also a devotee of John Denver, and performs a tribute show throughout the country featuring many of Denver’s classic songs. Welcome to ASL, Mark!
This will be an incredible show, so call Uncle Kit to make your reservations, and we’ll see you at the Parlor!
