About Tim Puckett - QwanTim Music and Events

Creating online content thru videos, photography, audio production/recording, graphic design services, and web support to foster growth in the local music scene and artists in Steamboat Springs, Colorado specifically, and Colorado artists in general. Funding goes towards equipment, travel expenses, artist’s booking fees, promotion & advertising, and other costs associated with producing original music, videos, and live performances. Being a local musician ain’t free, it often costs more to put on a show then a local venue is willing to pay! And you can’t eat, travel to gigs, or buy new guitar strings with “exposure.”

About me: 

I bought my first guitar in high school and tried teaching myself to play, but after awhile of not progressing as much as I wanted, I eventually set it aside for awhile.  In 2007 I began DJing and have done that for the better part of a decade, playing corporate employee parties, birthdays, special events, and the local bar circuit as DJ QwanTim.  I have self-produced 3 party mix cd's and have always handled my own promotion & marketing as well, designing my own logo, posters and flyers for events, and other materials. 

Recently I picked up the guitar again, wanting to get away from the overhyped DJ world and back to my simpler Montana country/western roots.  I have switched from throwing DJ dance parties to hosting a free and open to the public weekly Open Mic Night and drawing on the collective talent of the Steamboat Springs music community.  While I am still learning to play guitar, I've attacked it with the same focus I put into my DJing and have progressed to the point where I can get up in front of folks and play a few tunes and share the music that I love.  I still have that desire to entertain through live music and love the special moments those performances create.  The Open Mic Night provides a unique opportunity for local performers and visitors to take home high quality videos of their performance via a couple of GoPro cameras, perfect for promoting themselves to their fans on social media.  The desire to cater to local musicians has grown to an online presence as well in the Facebook Group "Steamboat Local Music Scene", which is getting close to topping 300 members in just a couple months of being up and running.

Eventually my goal is to provide support and promotion for a strong community of local musicians, increased live shows and high quality nightlife, something that Steamboat Springs, as a destination ski resort town, is sorely lacking when compared to other Colorado towns.  One of the most common complaints I hear from both locals and guests to Steamboat is there is no live music, at least not of the caliber, genre, or production value they are looking for.  When I first moved to Steamboat in 2010 there was a decent DJ dance music scene, and a variety of music acts spanning a number of different genres.  As the years have passed, a number of venues have closed permanently, others have changed ownership, the music has all started to sound the same, and with the a few notable exceptions, the vibe in general has seemed a lot less supportive of local artists.  I look forward to working with up-and-coming artists, local business owners, and other event promoters to provide this area with a wide variety of the top notch local entertainment we all want to see here!

Goals

The $300 goal would be to establish a fund to support local artists in their costs of performing live. Paying for gas to get to gigs, getting those flyers printed to hang up around town, paying booking fees for supporting acts from out-of-town, etc. this fund will need constant replenishment.
