The Rocker

The new home of Zeitgeist and The Rocker

Chile Colorado

We’re finishing off the day in sunny California, home of the oddly named Chile Colorado and their brand of eighties styled hard rock.

They’ve also got some musical roots in the seventies as befits their power trio lineup but their groove sticks mainly to the hard rock sounds of Van Halen and their followers.  They make a fine racket so hats off to singer/songwriter/guitarist Ron Wright and his rhythm section of Paul Goss on bass and John Ferraro on drums.

It’s a brief album as they rattle through seven tracks with “Getting Restless for Your Love” and “Gun Smoke” taking the plaudits.  Although they do find time to stretch out on “Cloud Jumper” which demonstrates what good musicians they are.  Give it a stream before you buy but it is worth a listen.
