Celebrate five years of good times at Steve’s

CARBONDALE, Colo. – Steve’s Guitars in downtown Carbondale is celebrating its fifth anniversary of presenting live music every week this weekend with 14 musicians coming to entertain.”It’s perfect that we have booked a good band from out-of-state, along with The Frank Martin Band and some other special local musicians,” said Steve’s owner Steve Standiford. “It’s the best of both worlds.”Standiford started what he calls “our crazy, musical adventure” in 2001 to help support local musicians.”It’s amazing to us that we are able to continue doing so in 2006,” he said. “Come out and celebrate with us this weekend and remember to support your local musicians every chance you get. They are a precious resource and deserve our continuous recognition. A little money and applause goes a long way in the life of a musician.” Steve’s will have special desserts, beverages, prizes and other surprises planned for the shows. Steve’s Guitars 260th Consecutive Friday Night of Live Music continues tonight with Corinne West and The Posse from the Northern Sierras in California.”Corinne has been getting rave reviews for her debut album, “Bound for the Living”, and her hypnotic live performances,” Standiford said. “Wavy Gravy says: ‘She burns the paint off the walls.'” Corinne West is a singer-songwriter-performer who has written songs in the genre of country-bluegrass-western Americana-folk. She has had the help of the Waybacks for her bluegrass instrumental backup, Standiford said. On Saturday, the Frank Martin Band will have a CD Celebration Party with special guests Chris Bank, Peg O’Brien, Kathy Briggs, Lisa Dancing-Light and Roberta Lewis.”Frank has been entertaining us with his guitar playing and singing for many years,” Standiford said. “After enjoying his musical skills in Sneaker, the Sirens, Boneyard, the Carbondale Talent Show Band and many other ensembles, it’s good to see The Frank Gayer Martin Band and friends.” Martin will bring in his band which includes Paul Valentine on percussion, Doug Whitney on bass, Randy “Flying Fingers” Utterback on mando and fiddle and Sue Krehbiel on vocals. Martin will play lead and rhythm guitar, mandolin and sing, said Standiford.The new CD, “Postmark” is original Americana music and presents some of the songs that have been winning awards and accolades for Martin. Martin has lived in the Roaring Fork valley since 1981. He’s been playing guitar for 35 years and is equally at ease rocking out on his Stratocaster or playing mandolin and lap steel on bluegrass and country. Martin’s new CD is included with the price of admission on Saturday night. Shows start at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 or $20 with a CD.
