On Sunday August 30, BeeJeeCo. Events is throwing an end of summer celebration at Denver’s favorite dog friendly bar – The Watering Bowl – at 5411 Leetsdale Dr. In Denver, CO. The Watering Bowl has a great indoor concert space including 3 bars and a 7800 square foot dog friendly patio. Dog Days of Summer Bluegrass Festival is an all-day affair focusing on the celebration of music, art, the local community, and most importantly our four-legged friends.
It has been raining on us in Colorado unusually much this spring, but that has not stopped or even slowed down the festival scene in this beautiful state. Parking was easy, and as I approached the festival, I heard the sounds of Vine Street Vibes as I strolled down the trendy neighborhood that we now call the Highlands (formerly known as the North side). Vine Street Vibes play instrumental electro-funk, and they were a nice way to begin a very diverse lineup.
The 5th Annual LoHi Music Festival will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2015, at 32nd Avenue & Vallejo right in the heart of Denver, across from Highland Tap & Burger in the Lower Highlands. Today, organizers are proud to announce the addition of the fast-picking Nashville wunderkinds, The Infamous Stringdusters, to the already-stacked lineup featuring Kung Fu, Hot Buttered Rum, Roosevelt Collier's Colorado Get Down, The Malah, Joey Porter's Vital Organ and Vine Street Vibes.
Last week Denver based bluegrass band Trout Steak Revival played a sold-out show at The Bluebird Theater to showcase their new album Brighter Every Day. Banjo player Chris Pandolfi from The Infamous Stringdusters produced the album and sat in with the band for their album release.
The Infamous Stringdusters put the spurs to their spring tour with a fret-blazing, shape-shifting show featuring special guest Keller Williams at Eugene’s McDonald Theatre (March 5th). The ‘Dusters delivered a convincing account of their distinctive “high country” sound while Williams complimented nicely, both with an impressive opening set and later, playing alongside the headliners. The pairing made for an entertaining combination of Nashville polish and free-spirited, festival charm.
Our society has developed a Chicken Little mentality that leaves lots of folks either glued to their cell phone or computer while waiting for a miracle or cringing that the good old days are gone.
Five years in, The Festy Experience, has proven itself to be as enjoyable, accessible and certain to give attendees more than their money’s worth both musically and scenically as any festival on the East Coast. You do not have to load up a week’s worth of supplies and go all the way to Florida. You do not have to pray and dodge 18 wheelers buzzing by at 85 miles per hour nor endure hour’s long traffic jams on your way up and down hundreds of miles of interstate l- 95. The Festy is conveniently located about an hour so
The 2nd annual ARISE Music Festival was full of magic, wonder, music, acrobats, dancers, poets, and artists of all kinds just as it was last year during its debut. After reviewing the pre-party in Boulder and attending the open house on site, I knew that the creators and help of this amazing festival would come together once again to produce a loving, creative, and musical environment, which would provide endless delight for everyone involved.
Every summer music festival season brings a slew of new concepts and destinations for “festivarians” to pick and choose from. You have to marvel at the fact that so many continue to thrive year after year considering the number of options that are out there. In Colorado alone, thousands of tourists from everywhere come to enjoy countless summer music festival options. Maybe you made it to Rockygrass in July and rejoiced in the revival of a flood-ravaged site miraculously sprung back to life with true roots community effort.
