Live Music Fans,
We got to make some excellent live music happen this past weekend to celebrate the 49th Mtn. Fair. On Saturday Night, the fantastic act called the ReMinders put on an amazing high energy show that got folks dancing in the street and on the sidewalk just outside the front door. Good to make it happen but I really miss the packed front room filled with dancing fans coming over from the Fair. Oh well. Thanks to Carbondale Arts for making the live stream happen.
And on Friday Night, Jackson Emmer and Lester Price put on another gorgeous show featuring Jackson’s original songs and Lester’s nice picking. Once again, we proved that we have some really high quality musicians living in Carbondale.
FRIDAY NIGHT – JULY 31ST – SMUGGLER MOUNTAIN BOYS – 7:30PM – www.thesmugglermountainboys.com Join the Live Stream at www.grassrootstv.org/steve
We have had the pleasure of listening to this very talented local act many times inside the shop and in some outdoor concerts in the past. This all-star band features David “Notes” Notor on dobro/mando and vocals, Craig Snow on acoustic guitar and vocals, Mike Leavey on standup bass, Ross Kribbs on fiddle, and Don Marlin on Banjo and vocals. Lots of hot pickin and sweet harmonies come together for a beautiful live performance.
“There is nothing like a live band playing music for you. The Smuggler Mountain Boys is a traditional and contemporary bluegrass band playing everything from Bill Monroe to The Grateful Dead.
The band plays the occasional pub from Aspen to Glenwood, Bluegrass Sundays on top of Aspen Mountain, and at the farmers� markets in Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, Newcastle, and Rifle. Add in Marblefest and the Carbondale Mountain Fair, and a whole lot of private parties!!!”
Join the live stream on www.grassrootstv.org and remember you can donate some support to the musicians to help keep them alive during these challenging times. It’s all we have right now and it’s way better than nothing. Don’t you think? Hope so. We remain patiently waiting for it to feel safe for hosting audiences like for so many years before. Until then, we will keep the streams coming thanks to your support and well wishes. Please keep them coming our way. Continued thanks to our many sponsors listed partially below who have made the streams happen in this time living with Covid-19. Be well!
