THE GREATEST BAND NEVER HEARD! ''CHASING COLORS''







THE GREATEST BAND NEVER HEARD!


Chasing Colors are all original members of the 1980s and early 1990s Minneapolis, Minnesota original rock band ,The Colour.



The band released their first ever CD and Digital Album EP available to the public July 18th 2015 and have achieved success getting radio airplay, impressive music reviews and are gaining many new fans.

The band has renamed themselves, Chasing Colors...So much more appropriate as they are still reaching for their musical dreams!! Chasing Colors back in the day were compared to The Cure, U2 and even The Cars. Surprisingly, Louie Paretta (Lead Vocals/Guitar), David Wagner (Bass/Vocals), David E. Paquette (Drums/Vocals) and Scott Patton (Lead Guitar/Vocals) have written and professionally recorded original songs all throughout their careers but were never able to get past handing out their cassette demo tapes out to fans at live shows. They had a good shot with a record deal when local talk radio host Terry “Griff” Griffen was managing the band. Unfortunately, Terry passed away from leukemia and with hard times, the band broke up.
In the last two decades, Louie Paretta, David E. Paquette and Scott Patton were active in the local music scene together as well as on their own. A little later on Louie moved to Georgia, had a go at it but later moved back to Minnesota. He played with local musicians including Dave E. Paquette while Scott Patton had moved to California, played in bands there, and after a decade moved back to Minnesota. In 2014 Scott and Louie talked and got the original band back together including Dave Wagner on bass guitar who had taken a two decade hiatus from the music scene. Now they are back and already writing and recording their second album as well as performing live shows. Chasing Colors is available for booking and interviews.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
