Colorado is Never Boring

Colorado is Never Boring

January 30th our Wednesday night began with the polar vortex hitting Grand Rapids Michigan. With temperatures and  road conditions being too bad for Uber and Lyft drivers, we were unable to get our last rehearsal in before our 6:40 AM flight out of Grand Rapids the next morning. With a lot of pushing and some luck, we got the Grizzly van out of a snowbank and headed to the airport.  Our 6:40 flight eventually left at 11:40. We had a gig in Pueblo Colorado that night so we had to make our connection in Detroit. We got off our flight in Detroit and three gates down was a flight to Denver that we were able to jump on right as the doors were closing. We arrived in Denver only to find that Gunnar's skis were the only bags to make it onto the new plane. The wonderful people at Delta agreed to bring our bags to the hotel in Pueblo on Thursday night.The boys and I grabbed the rental car and drove two hours to visit our friend Mike Dylan at KATC Nash-FM in Colorado Springs. They graciously gave us T-shirts so we could have clean clothes to wear on stage that night. Off to Pueblo  and The Brue's Alehouse. Tony and the rest of the staff are some of our favorites.We arrive to a fully backlined stage. Sound check was smooth and easy. We checked into the hotel, showered up, wrote up a set list and headed over to the venue. The show was great, the room sounded awesome, and we even got a woman with a leg cast up and dancing. We enjoyed a few celebratory drinks and got some well needed rest. Day 1 in the books! Stay tuned for day 2. Events included more missing bags, flamethrower jugglers, altitude sickness and of course a gig.
