S05E02 – D.D. Seaton Discusses Life as a Musician, Artist, and Chef in Denver
Way back in the 80s, four guys in Farmington got together and formed a band called Burgundy. They moved the band to Denver, gained a following, and renamed themselves Men or Monsters. They later renamed themselves again to The Good Sirs. One of those guys is my next guest.
DD Seaton is a former musician turned current artist and chef. While he’s no longer performing in a band, today he’s a force to be reckoned with in the Arts District in downtown Denver . . . and in the kitchen where he works as a Chef during the day.
Spend an hour with Danny, buy him a beer, and talk philosophy or spirituality with him. He’ll fill your mind with ideas. Get him on a rant and he’ll fill your belly with laughter. Get him to cook for you and he’ll fill your senses with delights. Get him to play a guitar and he’ll fill your ears with great music. Become his friend and he’ll fill your soul with camaraderie.
I’m on the way to pick up Danny – or DD – and I might be driving, but I know I’m in for a ride. I have his art hanging in my house. I’m privileged to sit at his Thanksgiving spread each year. And I only have two regrets. One is that I’m getting lost on the way to his Denver studio. The other is that I don’t have enough time in one episode to get all of his stories in – but I’m gonna give it my best shot!
