Dewey Paul combines the influences of Dead, Dylan


KEYSTONE ” Dewey Paul Moffitt found Summit County 18 years ago, on a break from touring with the Grateful Dead. He finally was able to move to the mountains permanently back in December, and is releasing the Dewey Paul Band’s first album

with a show at the Goat. Moffitt worked the Dead shows backstage setting up, and also worked as a con cert promoter in Florida while performing music with the Dewey Decibel System before he arrived here.

He calls his music singer-song writer, and also, Colorado-influenced.

Living in Denver the past nine years has made a discernible difference.

“It definitely affected my songwrit ing. It’s more personal, more intimate ” the songwriting and all the arrange ments,” he said of living in Colorado.

Moffitt recorded the album at his home studio in Silverthorne.

Moffitt produces an annual Bob Dylan tribute concert which benefits music programs in the Denver schools. The band has also taken its show on tour, including a show in Silverthorne.

“Just being an artist, all the people that have inspired me over the years inspires me to give back to the com munity I work in,” he said.

“On the Devil’s Highway” will be available at the Goat or at Affordable Music in Dillon.
