Billy Shaddox

640 675 City Star Brewing

From the moment the title track of Billy Shaddox’s I Melt, I Howl kicks in to open this album, you get that twinge of excitement that this is going to be good. A breezy, warm track that immediately turns your head – a mix of pop melody, clean guitars, crisp production and immensely pleasing vocals. This Colorado songwriter has the ability of melding both pure roots-y Americana and a skilled manner in pop writing.

If the joyfulness of the title song wasn’t enough (which it isn’t), “My Hands Don’t Lie” is an absolute pop gem – catchy melody, upbeat – all the right elements. “Feels Like Home” is the masterful Americana Shaddox has begun to build his reputation around – banjo runs, strident rhythm, warmly undertoned acoustic guitar and subtle harmonies; “Fireflies” is an acoustic gem – the effects on the vocals heighten the song’s emotional width and “Story Of You And I” is as sweet and embracing as a love song can be.

Greg Schochet and Katie Glassman

640 675 City Star Brewing

Katie Glassman’s love affair with the fiddle began at the tender age of nine. Inspired by old-time Texas music, she began playing by ear, and was soon winning numerous honors throughout the West. In 1998, she captured the National Junior Fiddle Championship in Weiser, Idaho, and two years later the National Young Adult Fiddle Championship. She is a three- time top five finalist in the National Grand Champion Division and in 2011, she won the National Western Stock Show Championship. 2013 was Katie’s biggest year yet for competing, as she took top honors in two of the country’s most prestigious contests: Walnut Valley, in Winfield, Kansas, and Rockygrass in Lyons, CO.

But Katie is no one trick pony when it comes to fiddling. She studied classical and jazz violin at the University of Colorado in Boulder, graduating with a BA in music performance and a certificate in jazz studies. In 2007 she became only the second American to attend the Centre Musique Didier Lockwood in France, the world’s foremost jazz violin school.

Greg Schochet is a full-time performer, teacher and producer in Boulder, Colorado. Equally adept on guitar and mandolin, he is fluent in number of acoustic and electric styles, including bluegrass, swing, and country.

A veteran of many touring and recording bands, his love of music and traveling has brought him to some of the most acclaimed venues in the country, including A Prairie Home Companion, Red Rocks, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, as well as the Rainforest World Music Festival in Malaysia.

Born and raised in the suburbs of New York city, Greg’s musical youth was framed by his father’s record collection and FM radio of the 70s and 80s. Combined with a deep love for all things traditional, twangy and old-timey, Greg’s musical sensibilities are wide-ranging and versatile.

He is an integral part of Colorado’s thriving roots music scene, and is a sought after instructor, session player, producer and collaborator.

GOATZ

Chris K and his friends are “old goats,” hence the name GOATZ! They’ve been around a while, kicking dirt, eating cans, that sorta thing.

Originally formed in 2003 with his wife Pattie, Chris took a break from performing for several years before reforming the band in 2015. Miss Pattie, aka Mrs Goat, passed away in February 2016 from metastatic melanoma. Goat and his friends decided to keep the music going.

Chris has been at this since the ’70s, performing across the US, and in Canada and Great Britain, playing in direct support of Guy Clark, Jim Lauderdale, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Reckless Kelly, the Railbenders and others. He was a founding member of the 90s era Southern-rock jam band Alien Cowboy in Fort Collins.

Chris is also the founder and president of Rocky Mountain Music Network LLC; the producer and host of the syndicated radio program, “Chris K’s Colorado Playlist,” heard on a number of stations statewide; and an on air host at 105.5 The Colorado Sound in Northern Colorado.

Goatz! has performed at Bohemian Nights @ New West Fest, Carbon Valley Music & Spirits Festival, FOCOMX, Fort Collins Peach Festival, Yarmonygrass,the Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Avogadro’s Number, Oskar Blues, the Walnut Room, Ziggies, Mile High Flea Market and other regional venues, events and festivals.

Scratch and Sniff – Homegrown Fresh Hop IPA Release

150 150 City Star Brewing

Homegrown Fresh Hop IPA release today at 2pm (growlers welcome)! We know many of you are just as excited as we are to taste one of our beers featuring our homegrown Centennial hops. There’s something special about watching these bines (not a type-o!) grow through summer and then literally enjoying the fruits of their labor. John pulled hops before last weekend’s snow to wet hop two American IPA kegs for release in the taproom only. That’s under an hour from bine to beer! Definitely a dream of John’s. We are excited to share this special beer!

City Star Brewing to Release “Palomino” Barrel Aged Saison

150 150 City Star Brewing

Palomino Bottle Release

The next release in City Star’s Zoller Barrel Aged Series is Palomino.

This Belgian saison aged 11 months in chardonnay barrels and 2 months with tangerine and soursop. Palomino has a light body and dances with gold color. A zesty fruit profile from the tangerine and soursop are present, while a slight tartness and wild funky flavor balances the beer. The finish is pleasantly sweet and dry.

Curbed Hunger food truck has also prepared a special duck confit sandwich pairing for the release. City Star will be opening all of their other bottles of barrel aged beers during the day on Saturday also.
