It Don’t Mean A Thang If It Ain’t Western Swing

Like most everyone in the local music scene, we were caught unawares by the surprise announcement that blues guitar slinger Jake Loggins was hanging up his guitar and re-locating to Utah. Following in the footsteps of Colorado Springs blues legend John-Alex Mason, Jake established himself as a driving force in the local music community. He will be missed, and we wish him well but sincerely hope that he will return to a local stage at some point in the future.

Meanwhile, a quick glance at the Pikes Peak Concert Calendar reveals that the coming week is a very good time to be a connoisseur of live music. Here, in all its extraordinary glory, is the world famous Rocky Mountain Highway list of the Top 10 Concerts in the Pikes Peak Region:

1. Fiddles, Vittles & Vino XI, Rock Ledge Ranch, Sun July 26 (2 pm, $50). Eleven years and counting, FFV remains one of the hottest local summer festivals. This year’s string music offerings include Hot Club of Cowtown, Caribou Mountain Collective, Songs of the Fall and The Stanleytones. Enjoy two stages of music with tastings from the area’s finest independent restaurants, wine purveyors, and craft brewers and distillers. All proceeds benefit the historic Rock Ledge Ranch.

2. Blues Under the Bridge, West Colorado Avenue Bridge, July 25 (2 pm, $40 adv, $45 day of show, $91.50 VIP). Make it a festival weekend with bluegrass Sunday and the blues on Saturday! The lineup for the 9th Annual BUTB, presented by KRCC and the Pikes Peak Blues Community, includes Carolyn Wonderland, Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens, Mr. Sipp (the Mississippi Blues Child), Mulebone, and BJ Estares & Route 61. Also plenty of tasty, cold Bristol Brewing drafts. Read more
