Local musician John Jenkins is hosting the Sunday Howl every Sunday at the Wolf’s Den.

Golden’s Sunday Howl back for the summer

The summer season is starting up for the Sunday Howl at the Wolf’s Den.

The summer season is starting up for the Sunday Howl at the Wolf’s Den.

In a very musical community, musicians John Jenkins and Curt Thorne have started a weekly experience that is a little different from the rest.

“I’ve hosted quite a few jam nights since I’ve been in town, and this one is just a little bit different,” said Jenkins.

The Sunday Howl, unlike other jam nights and karaoke nights around Golden, is an open mic session at an all ages venue to allow for young and old to not only participate, but enjoy the show.

“It’s really neat having the kids there and watching them dance around. It’s great that they can go out and watch live music,” said Jenkins, who is a recent father himself. “Lots of families came regularly. It’s just a different feel, it’s really neat. Young and old come out, it’s a really nice mixed crowd.”

Everyone is welcome to come by and listen to the music. If you would like to perform, just show up and talk to Jenkins when you get there. Most people bring their own instruments, but there is a guitar available if you need one.

In the winter season there were acoustic and electric guitars, bass players, fiddlers, a banjo, a mandola, and one Sunday a drummer came. Most of the music played is acoustic, and given that it is more of a family environment, Jenkins keeps the volume at a reasonable level.

“We started it with a pretty open mind, so we’re really flexible with what kind of instruments and musicians want to come out,” he said. “It’s very conducive to songwriters. So if you have a tune you want to try out, this is a great place.”

The Howl ran every Sunday from February to April for the winter season, and will be starting up for the summer season on July 7 from 4 to 8 p.m.
