Behind The Scene Episode 29 – Tobias Krause (Two Parts – Promoter, Talent Buyer, Event Manager)

“I have much respect for Tobias,  He is the future of Denver music (from the event side)”

This was a quote from a friend of mine regarding Tobias Krause.  I received this text about an hour before Tobias arrived at my house for the taping of this show and a couple hours later, I found myself agreeing with every word of that statement.

Tobias is another one of those guys whose name all of us have known for a few years now…even those who have never spoken a direct word with the man.  He is a promoter, he is a talent buyer, he is an event manager, a journalist, a musician, a writer.  A man of many hats, Tobias is quickly becoming one of the most influential individuals in the Denver art scenes.  This is why I have wanted to have him on the show for so long, and as expected…the conversation was wonderful and informative.

Listen as I sit with Tobias and talk about his musical past, his journalistic past, and his event management world of today.  Tobias has been the one to shape the Westword Music Showcase for the last 2 years.  He talks about the ins and outs of how that important Denver music festival is put together (this part is a must listen for any Denver musician!)  He also chats about his involvement in the Denver restaurant scene, the Denver Beer scene, the Denver Craft scene…if something involves creativity and Denver, Tobias Krause seems to be an influential part of it.

One thing I took away from this conversation…we need more people like Tobias.  He is one of the ones that brings the organization, the resources, and the passion to these Denver events that allow our city’s arts to shine.

We all owe people like Tobias a beer (after all, he probably threw a festival that helped promote your favorite new brewery).
