...there are three great hotels in my whole world who looks out for us as musicians and as guests. The Outlook hotel in Boulder Colorado, the Trade Winds in Rockland maine and the Amedia hotel in Wels Austria. If you get the chance to go to any of them tell them I sent ya.
Once again, last nights performance by Bill Sheffield was another outstanding night at Blues and Greens. Bill's voice alone could carry a show. Paul's choice of bass and drummer could not have been any better. Everyone I talked with agreed. The level of talent that you have brought to the Blues and Greens this past spring and
summer thus far has hit an all-time high. I am looking forward of being part of music history being made at the Blues and Greens. Thank you Dan for your commitment to provide top notch quality music.

My wife Vivian and I were priviledged to go on tour recently with our "kids," The Dustin Pittsley Band. We had the time of our lives! Our first two nights of the tour (June 22-23) were spent at the Boulder Outlook Hotel. Having traveled extensively over my career, I know a well managed hotel when I visit it. From the well maintained rooms to the food and the staff at the hotel, we could not have more pleased. Very Professional!
Equally impressive is the way the band was treated. It is little wonder why they look forward to the next tour in Colorado. We have known the talent of the Dustin Pittsley Band for several years and are thrilled with the reception they are receiving in Colorado as the fan base continues to grow.
Again, thank you for such a wonderful experience, and thank you for appreciating and supporting the blues and the artists.

One of the best features, for those who know, that some of the best music comes from jams is the quality of music you can hear sometimes with only 10 to 30 people there thus a more cozy, friendly, home atmosphere. There is magic there for those who can see it, a sense of home that truly makes The Boulder Outlook an uncommon hotel. Like all the arts, there are more talented artists than there is recognition, and I feel I am witnessing part of music history from the young musicians, musicians past, and the up-and-coming musicians and bands of the future at The Boulder Outlook’s Blues and Greens, and I look forward to my positive experience in my Home of the Blues.

Just wanted to let you know we were at the Little Al (Thomas)show with 3 out-of town guests and we were all blown away. The musicianship was stellar and the Hammond B-3 organ was an added treat. It was one of the best shows I've seen there and that's saying something! Man, that's what I call The Real Blues. Anything you can do to bring these guys back in the future is a coup for Boulder.

The #1 blues venue in Colorado. They have more national blues bands playing in
their lounge than any other place in Colorado. They feature music 5 to 6 nights
a week and also feature the best Colorado blues bands. They have open stage
jams on Tuesdays. Besides the weekend nights--they will get national acts on

Blues & Greens makes a fine addition to the list of Boulder restaurants serving healthy pub fare. The place is affordable, appealing and quirky. So if you like vegetarian food or blues music, make your way to the Outlook Hotel. Who knows? You may be getting in on the hot restaurant trend of 2012.

"I always enjoy the slip aways to the Boulder Outlook. Gives me a chance to visit the blues folks up close. To sit down with a cat like Margolin or Willie "Big Eyes" is as close to the source as one can get. Keepin the Blues alive is not just an expression , its a mission. The future is bright if you turn off the light your TV gives off and get to a live show." - John Catt (Blues Cat)
"Love the Outlook! What a great place to play and great place to find the best blues in Boulder.
Dan King is a "saint" in how he treats our local musicians and Honey Sepeda's blues news is just what we needed to spread the word......and the pizza is pretty darn good too.
Looking forward to our next show there.." - Catfish Kray
"This is one of the coolest places we've ever played! The Outlook's
hospitality and commitment to live music is a breath of fresh air!"
- Kelly Richey
"Me and some of the guys in my band refer to Dan as a " blues angel" , similar to what Clifford Antone must have been like down in Austin. The Denver/Boulder blues community is lucky to have him."
