Michael Franti is playing at Red Rocks!

Michael Franti is playing at Red Rocks!

 

The best group ever, Michael Franti and Spearhead! We going to get our smoke on, mon!  We are also staying at the Arrowhead Manor inn.  Close to Red Rocks and great mountain views!  No better state or venue to see this group. He is an American rapper, musician, poet, and singer-songwriter. He is the creator and lead vocalist of Michael Franti & Spearhead, a band that blends hip hop with a variety of other styles including funk, reggae, jazz, folk, and rock. He is also an outspoken supporter for a wide spectrum of peace and social justice issues. Michael Franti was born in Oakland, California. His mother had Irish, German, and French ancestry, and his father, Thomas Hopkins, was of African-American and Native American descent. However, his mother made an adoption plan for him because she was afraid her family would not accept him. He was adopted by Carole Wisti and Charles Franti, a Finnish-American couple in Oakland, who at the time had three biological children and one adopted African American son. Charles Franti was a professor in the department of epidemiology and preventive medicine of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and died in 2003. Michael’s four siblings are named Rebecca, Sara, Dan, and Matthew. Michael spent his grade 9 school year at Highland Junior High School in Edmonton, Alberta. He then attended Davis Senior High School and graduated from the University of San Francisco. During his time at school there he met a priest who taught him how to tell a story on paper, and soon he was writing poetry. He purchased a bass at a pawn shop and started creating music inspired by hip hop, punk, and reggae that was being played on the campus radio station. Franti is also an advocate for peace in the Middle East. His film I Know I’m Not Alone features footage of Iraq, the Palestinian territories, and Israel. Franti decided to embark on this three week journey with friends to view the cost of war in the Middle East first-hand. Franti states, “This film came out of my frustration with watching the nightly news and hearing generals, politicians, and pundits explaining the political and economic cost of the war in the Middle East, without ever mentioning the human cost. I wanted to hear about the war by the people affected by it most: doctors, nurses, poets, artists, soldiers, and my personal favorite, musicians.” The film aims to speak multiple generations and to give people a better understanding of the people who still live in war-torn countries. He did not embark on the trip for the film with any special government groups or organizations, but instead bought plane tickets and headed off to Iraq, the Palestinian territories, and Israel armed with nothing more than his guitar and an extreme passion for music and a love of people. He says, “When I first had the idea for this journey, I had no idea how to get to Iraq and almost no idea how to make a film. After discovering that all you need to get into Iraq is a plane ticket, I prayed that movie making would be that simple…” In 2001 Franti was awarded the Domestic Human Rights Award by Global Exchange, an international NGO based in San Francisco, for his work to end war. In 2006, he was invited by Australian Labour MP Jenny Macklin to show the film at Australia’s Parliament House, Canberra. Franti has two sons: Ade and Cappy. Michael is engaged to be married to emergency room nurse and jewelry designer Sara Agah whose company, SaraLua Designs, makes jewelry and accessories from bamboo and other sustainable materials. Inspired by his son, Franti became a vegan. In 2000, Franti decided not to wear any shoes, initially for three days. Since then, he has chosen to go barefoot except for occasionally wearing flip-flops as required to board an airplane or to be served in a restaurant. Franti prefers to go barefoot. In 1994, Franti formed a new band called Spearhead with a few studio musicians, including mainstay Carl Young, and announced the dissolution of Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. Their first release, Home, in September 1994, was a departure from the politically charged rap of the Disposable Heroes and drew more from funk and soul music. The album was produced by Franti and Joe Nicolo. The song “Positive”, also from the album Home, appeared on the Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool compilation album by the Red Hot Organization. In 1998, Spearhead recorded “I Got Plenty ‘o Nuthin” with Ernest Ranglin for the Red Hot Organization‘s compilation album Red Hot + Rhapsody. Their follow up album Chocolate Supa Highway was released in March 1997, with several changes in band members between releases. This album featured a return to hip hop elements and a pronounced reggae influence and included guest appearances by notables like Stephen Marley and Joan Osborne. After releasing the two albums, the band split with Capitol Records (reportedly prompted by the label’s repeated urging to perform with other artists like Will Smith). His song “Sometimes” was included on the soundtrack to the 1999 film, Mystery Men, as well as the soundtrack to the 2006 film, Last Holiday. Also, under the “Spearhead” name, their cover version of The Police’s 1979 No. 32 hit, “Roxanne”, was featured on the soundtrack to the 1997 film Good Burger, the full-length feature film starring Kenan Thompson & Kel Mitchell based on their characters from the popular ‘Good Burger’ sketch featured on the Nickelodeon series All That. Come and check out this awesome group and get high in the state of Colorado! Red Rocks is up in the mountains and the best place to see a show in the state!  Check out accommodations at the Arrowhead Manor inn.  It’s a great place to stay for Red Rocks.

Beck is playing at Red Rocks!

Beck is playing at Red Rocks!

 

We are from Canada and already have our tickets to see Beck, the American singer, songwriter, record producer and multi-instrumentalist. We are also staying at the Arrowhead Manor inn.  Great place to stay for a Red Rocks concert.  He is mostly known for his musical composition, as well as a palette of sonic genres. He rose to fame in the early 1990s with his sonically experimental and lo-fi style, and became known for creating musical collages of wide genre styles. Today, he musically encompasses folk, funk, soul, hip hop, alternative rock, country and psychedelia. He has released 12 studio albums (3 of which were independently released), as well as several non-album singles and a book of sheet music. Born in Los Angeles in 1970, Beck grew towards hip-hop and folk in his teens and began to perform locally at coffeehouses and clubs. He moved to New York City in 1989 and became involved in the city’s small fiery anti-folk movement. Returning to Los Angeles in the early 1990s, he cut his breakthrough single “Loser“, which became a worldwide hit in 1994, and released his first major album, Mellow Gold, the same year. Odelay, released in 1996, produced hit singles, topped critic polls and won several awards. He released the psychedelic Mutations in 1998, and the funk-infused Midnite Vultures in 1999. The soft-acoustic Sea Change in 2002 showcased a more serious Beck, and 2005’s Guero returned to Odelay‘s sample-based production. The Information in 2006 was inspired by electro-funk, hip hop, and psychedelia; 2008’s Modern Guilt was inspired by ’60s pop music; and 2014’s folk-infused Morning Phase won Album of the Year at the 57th Grammy Awards on February 8, 2015. He is reportedly working on a thirteenth studio album, with the singles “Dreams” and “Wow” having already been released. With a pop art collage of musical styles, oblique and ironic lyrics, and postmodern arrangements incorporating samples, drum machines, live instrumentation and sound effects, Beck has been hailed by critics and the public throughout his musical career as being among the most idiosyncratically creative musicians of 1990s and 2000s alternative rock. Two of Beck’s most popular and acclaimed recordings are Odelay and Sea Change, both of which were ranked on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The four-time platinum artist has collaborated with several artists and has made several contributions to soundtracks. Beck’s musical style has been considered alternative and indie. He has played many of the instruments in his music himself. Beck has also done some remixes for fellow artists, notably David Bowie and Björk. He has been known to synthesize several musical elements together in his music, including folk, psychedelia, electronic, country, Latin music, hip hop, funk, soul, blues, noise rock, and many types of rock. He has also taken music from Los Angeles as a reference point in his songs. Beck was given the title “Funkmaster General” by Dori Zori, an on-air host at the radio station WYMS (88Nine Radio Milwaukee) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in February 2017. Beck has an irreverent style of sampling, often using such sources as obscure films to splice together cuts of people talking in the background of his music, or various other found sounds to create sound collages in the background of his music. Pitchfork Media applauded Midnite Vultures, saying, “Beck wonderfully blends Prince, Talking Heads, Paul’s Boutique, ‘Shake Your Bon-Bon‘, and Mathlete on Midnite Vultures, his most consistent and playful album yet.” The review continued to comment on Beck, saying that his mix of goofy piety and ambiguous intent helped the album. A Beck song called “Harry Partch”, a tribute to the composer and his “Corporeal” music, employs Partch‘s 43-tone scales.  There is also another band performing the same evening:  Check out accommodations at the Arrowhead Manor inn.  Great for Red Rocks!

Santana is playing at Red Rocks!

Santana is playing at Red Rocks!

 

Well we could not have picked a better venue to see such a great artist!  We are also staying at the Arrowhead Manor inn to make a great date night.  Santana is a Mexican and American musician who first became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. The band’s sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin and African rhythms featuring percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not generally heard in rock music. Santana continued to work in these forms over the following decades. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. In 2003 Rolling Stone magazine listed Santana at number 20  on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. He has won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards. Santana was influenced by popular artists of the 1950s such as B.B. King, T-Bone Walker, and John Lee Hooker. Soon after he began playing guitar, he joined local bands along the “Tijuana Strip” where he was able to begin adding his own unique touch to ’50s Rock ‘n’ Roll. He was also introduced to a variety of new musical influences, including jazz and folk music, and witnessed the growing hippie movement centered in San Francisco in the 1960s. After several years spent working as a dishwasher in a diner and busking for spare change, Santana decided to become a full-time musician. In 1966 he gained prominence due to a series of accidental events, all happening on the same day. Santana was a frequent spectator at Bill Graham‘s Fillmore West. During a Sunday matinee show, Paul Butterfield was slated to perform there but was unable to do so as a result of being intoxicated. Graham assembled an impromptu band of musicians he knew primarily through his connections with Butterfield’s band and with the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane, but he had not yet chosen all the guitarists. Santana’s manager, Stan Marcum, immediately suggested to Graham that Santana join the impromptu band and Graham agreed. During the jam session, Santana’s guitar playing and solo gained the notice of both the audience and Graham. And he During the same year, Santana formed the Santana Blues Band, with fellow street musicians David Brown, Marcus Malone, and Gregg Rolie . He was later signed to Columbia where his band name, “Santana Blues Band” was shortened to, “Santana” that released a series of hit albums with an Afro-Cuban and Latin Rock feel thanks to Carlos’ exquisite guitar playing, characterized by the self-sustaining melody that became his trademark.

With their highly original blend of Latin-infused rock, jazz, blues, salsa and African rhythms, the band (which quickly adopted their frontman‘s name, Santana) gained an immediate following on the San Francisco club circuit. The band’s early success, capped off by a memorable performance at Woodstock in 1969, led to him signing a recording contract with Columbia Records, then run by Clive Davis. Santana kicked off the 1990s with a new album Spirits Dancing in the Flesh in 1990. This was followed by Milagro in 1992, a live album Sacred Fire in 1993 and Brothers (a collaboration with his brother Jorge and nephew Carlos Hernandez) in 1994. But sales were relatively poor. Santana toured widely over the next few years but there were no further new album releases, and eventually he was even without a recording contract. However, Arista Records Clive Davis, who had worked with Santana at Columbia Records, signed him and encouraged him to record a star-studded album with mostly younger artists. The result was 1999’s Supernatural, which included collaborations with Everlast, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, Eric Clapton, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, Cee Lo Green, Maná, Dave Matthews, K. C. Porter, J. B. Eckl, and others. However, the lead single was what grabbed the attention of both fans and the music industry. “Smooth“, a dynamic cha-cha stop-start number co-written and sung by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, was laced throughout with Santana’s guitar fills and runs. The track’s energy was immediately apparent on radio, and it was played on a wide variety of station formats. “Smooth” spent twelve weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming in the process the last #1 single of the 1990s. The music video, set on a hot barrio street, was also very popular. Supernatural reached number one on the US album charts and the follow-up single, “Maria Maria“, featuring the R&B duo The Product G&B, also hit number one, spending ten weeks there in the spring of 2000. Supernatural eventually shipped over 15 million copies in the United States, and won 8 Grammy Awards including Album of the Year, making it Santana’s most successful album. Carlos Santana, alongside the classic Santana lineup of their first two albums, was inducted as an individual, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. He performed “Black Magic Woman” with the writer of the song, Fleetwood Mac’s founder Peter Green. Green was inducted the same night. In 2000, Supernatural won nine Grammy Awards (eight for Santana personally), including Album of the Year, Record of the Year for “Smooth”, and Song of the Year for Thomas and Itaal Shur. Santana’s acceptance speeches described his feelings about music’s place in one’s spiritual existence. Later that year at the Latin Grammy Awards he won three awards including Record of the Year. In 2001, Santana’s guitar skills were featured in Michael Jackson‘s song “Whatever Happens”, from the album Invincible. In 2002, Santana released Shaman, revisiting the Supernatural format of guest artists including Citizen Cope, P.O.D. and Seal. Although the album was not the runaway success its predecessor had been, it produced two radio-friendly hits. “The Game of Love” featuring Michelle Branch, rose to number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent many weeks at the top of the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, and “Why Don’t You & I” written by and featuring Chad Kroeger from the group Nickelback (the original and a remix with Alex Band from the group The Calling were combined towards chart performance) which reached number eight on the Billboard Hot 100. “The Game of Love” went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. In early August 2003, Santana was named fifteenth on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. This will be an evening that we will never forget and cannot wait to see the show!  Check out the Arrowhead Manor inn for overnight accommodations.  They are in a great location with beautiful views and very convenient to Red Rocks.

Zed’s Dead is playing at Red Rocks!

Zed’s Dead is playing at Red Rocks!

 

We are going to Red Rocks to see Zeds Dead, the Canadian electronic music duo from Toronto, composed of Dylan Mamid, or DC, and Zach Rapp-Rovan, or Hooks. We are going to stay at the Arrowhead Manor inn and make a night of it!  DC and Hooks have been producing music together since 2004, formerly as Mass Productions. We have never been to Colorado so it should be an adventure for us. In the summer of 2007, they released one hip hop influenced album as Mass Productions, entitled Fresh Beetz, before launching Zeds Dead in 2009. The duo are currently signed to the record label, Mad Decent, and have released music on several others; much of their music remains bootlegged, unofficially released, or given away as free downloads. Their name “Zeds Dead” is a reference to a scene in the 1994 Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction, one of our favorite movies! Zeds Dead explores a diverse variety of genres that amalgamate aspects of electro house, hip-hop, glitch, and drum and bass into their largely dubstep platform. Frequent collaborator, rapper Omar Linx, has worked with the duo on several occasions, producing two EPs together as a trio. Zeds Dead tours in extensive fashion and are significant components of the live music and festival circuits. Their Living Dead Tour, which spanned from February to May 2012, included over seventy performances in the United States and Canada alone. Zeds Dead played their first live set at The Social in Toronto on June 11, 2009. In September 2010, they founded a weekly party at the Toronto venue “751”, called Bassmentality, alongside The Killabits. Bassmentality, which moved to Wrongbar in November 2010, became renowned for hosting the top international talents, and weekly performances from Zeds Dead and The Killabits. Bassmentality was founded in order to be allowed to play the music they wanted without having limits set by club owners. Kissy Sell Out has called Zeds Dead “the future of genres…flipping genius”, and in November 2010, his label “San City High” released the band’s first official single, “Rudeboy”. A version of “Rudeboy” featuring vocals from Omar LinX, a Toronto-based rapper who has worked on several of Zeds Dead’s releases, was put out in March 2011. Zeds Dead’s many productions have garnered millions of views on YouTube, topped the charts on Beatport, and earned them the support of the world’s top DJs. Zeds Dead gained international popularity long before their first official release by offering free downloads of their many productions. They continue to do so today. Their first self-released free song was “Journey of a Lifetime”, which was offered to fans as a free download in June 2009. Since Journey of a Lifetime, they have self-released nearly 20 productions at no cost. They are a part of a new generation of artists who continuously release free music to the general public and their fans. Kissy Sellout and Skream were two of the first to take notice of the duo, featuring their remix of Blue Foundation‘s “Eyes on Fire” on their radio shows, on BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM, respectively. Soon after releasing their remix of Eyes on Fire, Zed’s Dead linked up with Dragonette for an official remix of their 2010 release, “Volcano”. Zeds Dead’s original self-released “1975” was featured in GQ Magazine’s 2010 Video Shoot with Russian Supermodel Irina Shayk. On October 4, 2010, Zeds Dead released “Rumble in the Jungle” on the popular electronic label Mad Decent. It went on to reach #1 on Beatport’s breakbeat chart. The B-side of the 2-track EP entitled “Undah Yuh Skirt” features vocals from Jamaican dancehall singer Mavado. Following “Rumble In The Jungle”, Zeds Dead released “Ruckus the Jam” on Steve Aoki’s LA-based label, Dim Mak. In 2011, Zeds Dead released “Bassmentality” featuring The Killabits, a track made as a tribute to the friends and fans who were involved in their Toronto weekly party of the same name. We already have our suite booked at the Arrowhead Inn for the evening and cannot wait to stay at the bed and breakfast!  Check out the Arrowhead Manor inn for accommodations.

Umphrey’s Mcgee is playing at Red Rocks!

Umphrey’s Mcgee is playing at Red Rocks!

 

My friends and I are going to the Red Rocks Amphitheater to see Umphrey’s McGee, the American progressive rock band originally from South Bend, Indiana, whose music is often referred to as “progressive improvisation”, or “improg”.  We are going to make a night of it and are staying at the Arrowhead Manor inn.  It is beautiful and close.  Although the band is part of the jam band scene, like Phishand the Grateful Dead (with ever-changing setlists, improvisation, two sets per night, open taping policy, etc.), they are much more influenced musically by progressive rock artists such as King Crimson, Yes, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, and early Genesis, as well as heavy metal bands such as Iron Maiden and Guns N’ Roses. The band also identifies The Police, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin as primary influences. UM experiments with many genres including rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, electronic, bluegrass, and folk. Formed at the University of Notre Dame in December 1997. Umphrey’s McGee combined members of Tashi Station and Stomper Bob, two Notre Dame rock bands. Early concerts consisted of both originals and cover songs, including Guns N’ Roses“Patience” and Vince Guaraldi‘s Peanuts theme “Linus and Lucy” as well as songs by Phish, moe., and The Grateful Dead. According to Cummins, “The name originated from a distant relative of Brendan’s who shares a similar namesake. We’ve altered the name slightly.” In mid-1998, after only 8 months together, the band released their debut album, Greatest Hits Vol. III. Having a released studio disc allowed them to more readily book live performances. Though long out of print, the album contains songs that remain staples of Umphrey’s live sets, such as “Divisions”, “Phil’s Farm”, “FF”, and “All in Time”. Shortly after the release of the album, the band added a fifth member, percussionist Andy Farag. Farag’s father became the band’s agent, and a second pressing of Greatest Hits Vol. III featured Farag in the album’s inner sleeve and credits. By the end of the year, Umphrey’s McGee, along with peers Ali Baba’s Tahini, were one of the most popular bands in the South Bend/Notre Dame area. They began performing outside of the area at colleges and house parties, allowing listeners to tape and trade their music freely. In 1998, the band released their first live album, Songs for Older Women. Guitarist Jake Cinninger was added to the band in September 2000. Cinninger brought a heaviness to the Umphrey’s sound, as well as a large repertoire of original music, much of which comprised the bulk of the catalog from his previous band, Ali Baba’s Tahini. The band also adopted several songs written by Ali Baba’s Tahini frontman Karl Engelmann (who now fronts Asheville-based rock band Mother Vinegar). Shortly after Cinninger’s arrival, the band released another live album, One Fat Sucka, which contained live performances recorded in the summer and fall of 2000. Haven’t seen them live yet but we are really looking forward to the show. Especially at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. Never been there either but have heard many great things about the venue. 2003 was a year of change for UM. New drummer Kris Myers had to learn their extensive repertoire of originals and covers. The band continued their grueling tour schedule, logging over 150 shows for the year. The band began experimenting with a new “Lego” style of songwriting which involved piecing together original sections and lifted pieces of “Jimmy Stewart” improvisations to create new songs, such as Ocean Billy, #5, and Wife Soup. That summer, UM entered the recording studio in Chicago for their first studio album with Myers. In the Fall, the UM Live program was started by “Sound Caresser” Kevin Browning. Each night’s show would be offered on CD, for sale directly after the show. This soon translated into a partnership with Disc Logic for online distribution, and a few years later all of the band’s shows would be moved to UMLive.net. In November, the band released their first DVD, Live from the Lake Coast, and later that month their first official release featuring Kris Myers, Local Band Does Oklahoma (Recorded on April 23 in Oklahoma City). In 2004, the band released Anchor Drops, recorded in several different studios throughout the Chicago area. Shortly before the release of the album, the band scored a distribution deal for both Anchor Drops and Local Band Does OK, and for the first time, Umphrey’s McGee music was available in stores all over the country. The album received rave reviews from several high-profile magazines. Once again, Umphrey’s headed to Bonnaroo, playing a coveted late-night spot. The band performed to over 20,000 people, many of whom had never heard the band before. In July, the band was declared by Rolling Stone Magazine to “have become odds-on favorites in the next-Phish sweepstakes.” Starting in 2005, the band began producing Umphrey’s McGee Podcasts, an effort to provide fans with highlights of recent shows. Each podcast is around 75 minutes in length and is released about twice a month, and it has 20,000 listeners. “In the Kitchen” won the Jammy Award for Song of the Year. This is going to be one hell of a night! We will see you there!  Stay overnight at the Arrowhead Manor inn and make a night of it!

Paul Simon playing at Red Rocks

 

We will not miss this show at the Red Rocks Amphitheater on the 28th.  Stay at the Arrowhead Manor inn and make a quick vacation out of it!  Paul Simon is an American musician, singer-songwriter and actor. Simon’s fame, influence, and commercial success began as part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, formed in 1964 with musical partner Art Garfunkel. Simon wrote nearly all of the pair’s songs, including three that reached No. 1 on the U.S. singles charts: “The Sound of Silence“, “Mrs. Robinson“, and “Bridge over Troubled Water”. The duo split up in 1970 at the height of their popularity and Simon began a successful solo career as a guitarist and singer-songwriter, recording three highly acclaimed albums over the next five years. In 1986, he released Graceland, an album inspired by South African township music, which sold 14 million copies worldwide on its release and remains his most popular solo work. Simon also wrote and starred in the film One-Trick Pony (1980) and co-wrote the Broadway musical The Capeman (1998) with the poet Derek Walcott. On June 3, 2016, Simon released his 13th solo album, titled Stranger to Stranger, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Album Chart and the UK charts. Simon has earned sixteen Grammys for his solo and collaborative work, including three for Album of the Year (Bridge Over Troubled Water, Still Crazy After All These Years, Graceland), and a Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2006 was selected as one of the “100 People Who Shaped the World” by Time magazine. In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine named Simon as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists. In 2015, he was named as one of the 100 Greatest Songwriters by Rolling Stone. Among many other honors, Simon was the first recipient of the Library of Congress‘s Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in 2007. In 1986, Simon was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music, where he currently serves on the Board of Trustees. In an in-depth interview reprinted in American Songwriter, Simon discusses the craft of songwriting with music journalist Tom Moon. In the interview, Simon explains the basic themes in his songwriting: love, family, social commentary, etc., as well as the overarching messages of religion, spirituality, and God in his lyrics. Simon goes on in the interview to explain the process of how he goes about writing songs, “The music always precedes the words. The words often come from the sound of the music and eventually evolve into coherent thoughts. Or incoherent thoughts. Rhythm plays a crucial part in the lyric-making as well. It’s like a puzzle to find the right words to express what the music is saying.” By far one of our favorite musicians and what a great place to see him perform! Finish out your night at the Arrowhead Manor inn to make it really special!

Lauren Hill is playing Red Rocks!

Posted on: June 27th, 2017 by sitecheck No Comments

We have loved Lauren Hill since The Fugees and cannot wait to see her at the Red Rocks event with Common!  We can’t wait to stay at the Arrowhead Manor inn again also!  They have beautiful views and are an easy drive to Red Rock. We’re bringing back the 90’s on June 27th! Lauren Hill was raised mostly in South Orange, New Jersey, Hill began singing with her music-oriented family during her childhood. She enjoyed success as an actress at an early age, with her older brother Graham Hill, appearing in a recurring role on the television soap opera As the World Turns and starring in the 1993 film Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit. In high school, Hill was approached by Pras Michel to start a band, which his cousin, Wyclef Jean, soon joined. They renamed themselves the Fugees and released the albums Blunted on Reality (1994) and the Grammy Award-winning The Score. In the latter record, which sold six million copies in the United States, Hill rose to prominence with her African-American and Caribbean music influences, her rapping and singing, and her rendition of the hit “Killing Me Softly“. Hill’s tumultuous romantic relationship with Jean led to the split of the band in 1997, after which she began to focus on solo projects. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill remains Hill’s only solo studio album. It received massive critical acclaim, showcasing a representation of life and relationships and locating a contemporary womanist voice within the neo soul genre. The album debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and has sold approximately eight million copies there. It included the singles “Doo Wop (That Thing)” (also a number one), “Ex-Factor” (became her biggest solo hit in UK), and “Everything Is Everything“. At the 41st Grammy Awards, the record earned her five awards, including Album of the Year and Best New Artist. During this time she won numerous other awards and became a common sight on the cover of magazines. Soon afterward, Hill dropped out of the public eye, dissatisfied with the music industry and suffering with the pressures of fame. Her last full-length recording, the new-material live album MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, sharply divided critics and sold poorly compared to her first album and work with the Fugees. Hill’s subsequent activity, which includes the release of a few songs and occasional festival appearances, has been sporadic and erratic. Her behavior has sometimes caused audience dissatisfaction; a reunion with her former group did not last long. Her music, as well as a series of public statements she has issued, has become critical of pop culture and societal institutions. Hill has six children, five of whom are with Rohan Marley, son of reggae legend Bob Marley. In 2012, she pleaded guilty to tax evasion for failure to pay federal income taxes, and in 2013, served a three-month prison sentence. And then there is Common performing also! Common’s first major-label album, Like Water for Chocolate, received widespread critical acclaim and tremendous commercial success. His first Grammy Award was in 2003, winning Best R&B Song for “Love of My Life“, with Erykah Badu. Its popularity was matched by May 2005’s Be, which was nominated for Best Rap Album, at the 2006 Grammy Awards. Common was awarded his second Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for “Southside” (featuring Kanye West), from his July 2007 album Finding Forever. His best-of album, Thisisme Then: The Best of Common, was released on November 27, 2007. Common won the 2015 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and the 2015 Academy Award for Best Original Song, for his song “Glory” from the 2014 film Selma, in which he co-starred as Civil Rights Movement leader James Bevel. Common’s acting career also includes starring significant roles in the films Smokin’ Aces, Street Kings, American Gangster, Wanted, Terminator Salvation, Date Night, Just Wright, Happy Feet Two, New Year’s Eve, Run All Night, Being Charlie, and John Wick: Chapter 2. He also narrated the award-winning documentary Bouncing Cats, about one man’s efforts to improve the lives of children in Uganda through hip-hop/b-boy culture. He starred as Elam Ferguson on the AMC western television series Hell on Wheels. This is definitely a show not to be missed!  Staying at the Arrowhead Manor inn makes for an extra nice evening!
