CPHC Newsletter   Hello and Happy Thursday!  In case you hadn’t heard…

The March Monthly Meeting is CANCELLED

This COVID-19 virus is wreaking havoc with our events!  Due to the Governor’s mandate, we won’t be able to have a meeting this month.  At this point, it’s not looking good for next month either, but stay tuned.. just in case!

March Events

Fainting Goat – 11:00am early lunch 
Saturday (14-March)

The new owner told us if we brought some people down to the Goat on Saturday, he’d give us our sponsorship money for the float and a keg of beer.  We brought about 45 people.. which is, in my mind, a lot more than “SOME” people.  After we ate, he decided not to give us the money.   He didn’t say why, but I suspect he is worried about business.  He owns 3 other bars in Denver, but maybe he is worried about all of his establishments, with the current situation.  He broke a promise.

Party at Pete’s house and float tear down
The party at Pete’s was a lot of fun.. Thank you to all who came out!  Thank you also to those who showed up on Sunday to tear down our beautiful float. It was a good one this year.. so thanks again to all who helped build it. Even though it never made a public appearance, you help was GREATLY appreciated!

March Monthly Meeting


In case you hadn’t heard:
Jimmy Buffett is coming to RED ROCKS!!!
September 8 and 10, 2020!  

The deadline to order tickets was March 13. I have released all tickets not sold to our club to other Parrot Head Clubs.  I can add you to a waitlist for tickets if you still want some and didn’t get your request in.

I can’t sell you more tickets if you have already gotten your allotted amount.  You must be a member in good standing with our club or another PHC, in order to get any tickets.

Tickets went to club members first, then on first come first served basis as memberships came in or were renewed.  After our members got their tickets, I released the remainder to the other Parrot Head Clubs. Red Rocks is a ‘bucket list” item for a lot of people, so these tickets were in high demand.  

REMEMBER: A commitment to buy tickets means you are responsible to pay for them.   Please mail your checks this week to:  (The tickets are $165.50 EACH) Colorado Parrot Head Club
% Robin Reed
7167 Dudley Drive
Arvada, CO 80004
Please make check payable to Colorado Parrot Head Club

Please do not ask me for extra tickets.  If you have friends who want tickets, they can join the club and I will put them on the list. 

Cost $165.50 each

We have had several people forget that extra .50 cents. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but with the number of tickets we have, we will lose a lot of money if we don’t collect that extra .50 cents from everyone.. so please don’t forget to add it up correctly.  
2 Tickets is $331… and 4 tickets is $662.  

Ticket prices include a free download of Jimmy’s new CD, so if you don’t want your email address sent off to get this download, please let me know. If you do not let me know that you object, I will be sending your email addresses to the Margaritaville people so they can send everyone the link to download Jimmy’s latest album.

2020 Pete’s Summer Concert Series

Word got out in the Trop Rock Musician world, that the Colorado Parrot Head Club threw a kick ass concert/Party with a Purpose this year, so we have had several musicians contact us, asking if they can do house concerts for us.  We have some amazing acts lined up!  Some of these folks NEVER do house concerts but they heard what a great group we have so they want to do a show for us!

Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton has brought his swamp-funk, slide guitar-one-man band, and a pot of gumbo all across the US and to Canada, Europe, and Asia. Sauce Boss cooks gumbo while performing; serving up bowls to the audience at the end of the shows.  He has served well over 200,000 people for free at his legendary live shows.  Sauce Boss is the guy Jimmy Buffett sings about in “I Will Play for Gumbo”. Wharton’s blues anthem, “Let the Big Dog Eat”, has been covered by many, including Albert Castiglia. His version was #1 on the Roots Music Report for twelve weeks. The tune was also in Jonathan Demme’s movie “Something Wild”. Now, Bill’s music will be featured throughout the soundtrack in the documentary, “Jimmy Carter – Rock and Roll President”, debuting early in 2020.

We still have plenty of t-shirts for our 25th Anniversary!!!  We have quite an assortment of colors (Pink, as shown below, Black, Butter Yellow, Caribbean Blue, Steel Gray, Periwinkle, Salmon and Sea Foam Green).  We have a wide variety of sizes, and both men’s and lady’s cut shirts (lady’s cut are only available in pink). The one shown below is a lady’s cut, with both front and back pictured.  

The front has the original Parrot Head logo on it, and the back has a picture on it provided by Dixie LaHood.  The pictures here don’t do it justice. They are awesome!!  We’ll have them at all the meetings. If you can’t attend a meeting and would like one… please contact Robin or Pete to arrange getting your cool new club shirt!  The cost is $30 each.

Misc. Events
Jeff Dunham is coming to the 1ST BANK Center (Broomfield Events Center) August 5.  

The SHOW IS MOVED TO AUG 5, 2020!!
Several in our group are interested in going, so we checked into group tickets. They don’t really have a group ticket sales up there, and we were not able to get a large group of tickets, but we did manage to get a few.  We have a very limited number, so we will sell them on a first come first serve basis. The cost is $75 each.  Sorry we can’t accommodate everyone, but there are still tickets for sale, so if you’d like to go, and can’t fit into our limited number, please buy some tickets online.  It will be a very fun night. “Jeffafa” is a SUPER funny! 

Contact Robin if you’d like to buy tickets. (by replying to this email)
