The Beatles tribute band Doctor Robert will play the kick-off concert for a second year; their performance last year was a huge hit with audience members of all ages.
The band is based out of Crested Butte and frequently tours around Colorado. “We’ve had a fantastic year since playing the Glenwood Caverns,” says band member Kevin Reinert. “We’ve been invited to play a lot of high profile shows, including summer music concerts in Basalt, Winter Park, Redstone, and Arvada. We’re also headlining the evening entertainment for the Fourth of July in Aspen.
“We’re playing a lot of new venues around the state, such as Dickens Opera House in Longmont, I Bar Ranch in Gunnison, and The Red Room in Manitou Springs.”
Doctor Robert has a huge selection of Beatles songs in their repertoire. “We’re up to 112 Beatles songs in our live catalog. Every song we learn becomes our new favorite, so look for more songs to be added to our live rotation,” says Reinert. The large selection means the band can tailor every song to the crowd’s mood. Get ready to kick up your heels, as this band got the partiers dancing last year!
“We’ve had nothing but positive feedback since we started this project in 2010, and every year brings new and exciting opportunities. We’re looking forward to kicking off another summer of outdoor music at Glenwood Caverns this weekend!” exclaims Reinert.
The free show starts at 6pm, and Can for a Tram starts at 4pm. Bring a can (or more) of food to donate to Lift-Up and get a free tram ride.
Rides and attractions will be open, and drink specials are available. Hope to see you there!
