Phestival season is underway in Colorado! I attended the Blues + Bones Fest on a warm spring night in urban Denver and found the event to be easy-going and enjoyable. There were several bar-b-que stands to choose from, two stages of music, and plentiful cocktails. subdudes proved to be the musical highlight. Two words: Tommy Malone! Dave Malone’s younger bro is one helluva musician and this reunited band, composed of Colorado and Louisiana players cooks up some truly savory sounds. The evening’s headliner, Derek Trucks Band featured a new lineup with Kofi Burbridge on keys and flute and vocals from Mike Mattison.
