DENVER, Colorado (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Colorado Music Hall of Fame will be inducting the Astronauts, Sugarloaf, Flash Cadillac and KIMN radio at the Boulder Theater on Saturday, Sept. 8.
The evening will feature video tributes, interviews with the inductees, celebrity speeches, and performances featuring inductees and guest members of popular Colorado bands. The gala will also include a historic array of exhibits and archival photographs which will then be relocated to the CMHOF’s home at 1stBank Center in Broomfield.
The Astronauts are a surf band from Boulder who found their greatest success in Japan, Sugarloaf is best known for their charting hits "Green Eyed Lady" And "Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You." Flash Cadillac was featured in film and television, including the iconic sitcom Happy Days and the film "American Grafitti" and "Apocalypse Now.' Radio station KIMN played a formative roll in the Denver market during the 1950s and '60s before a string of call sign changes in 1988, eventually settling on KRZW as an oldies station.
"The mission of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, a non-profit organization that benefits the CU College of Music, is to honor those individuals who have made outstanding contributions, to preserve and protect historical artifacts, and to educate the public regarding everything that’s great about our state’s music," says Chuck Morris, CHMOF’s chairman of the board. John Denver, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Harry Tuft of the Denver Folklore Center and promoter Barry Fey of Family Dog fame were the previous inductees into the CMHOF. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
