Boulder’s Astronauts, Flash Cadillac to be inducted into Colorado Music Hall of Fame

Boulder bands The Astronauts and Flash Cadillac will be among the four inductees into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame this September.

The Astronauts had a hit with “Baja” off the 1963 album Surfin With The Astronauts, and soon after released three more full-length albums. The band was also very successful in Japan, where they out-sold The Beach Boys and scored a chart-topping hit with the song “Movin.”

Flash Cadillac — formerly known as Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids — formed at CU Boulder in the late ‘60s. The rock ‘n’ roll group was featured on “American Bandstand” and “Happy Days,” as well as in “Apocalypse Now” and “American Graffiti.”

The induction ceremony will also honor Denver rock band Sugarloaf and Denver AM station KIMN radio. They’ll join Barry Fey, Harry Tuft, John Denver and Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the relatively new Hall of Fame.

The ceremony will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8 at the  Boulder Theater. General admission tickets will be $30 and are on sale now at bouldertheater.com.
