Behind The Scene Episode 3 – Tony Mason (Talent Buyer)

Last week I had the chance to sit and chat with Tony Mason.  Tony Mason is the talent buyer and really, the entertainment manager of Lost Lake, one of the great venues up on East Colfax.

We had a great talk and I learned all about Lost Lake‘s fascinating story of transformation; as well as Tony’s own personal story and his journey into the Denver music scene.  We also discuss some aspects of booking that many people don’t truly understand such as how exactly a local band gets considered for opening slots on national touring shows.

Tony’s choice for a musician that he believes more people should know about was U.T.I.C.A.  Tony tells us more about the local MC, what he loves about the music and we have a listen to his wonderful song “Ohh Wee”.

U.T.I.C.A.’s next live show is Thursday, May 21st at Lost Lake.
