This Saturday, Already Gone will make their fourth appearance at Music on the Mountain! The popular local band has had a great year since they last graced the stage at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. They took 1st place in this summer’s Strawberry Days Battle of the Bands competition, and they’ve also been traveling to perform events in other states. “In my opinion this has been our best year yet,” says Lisa Poplish, lead singer of Already Gone.
The band, known for covering a large variety of genres, has been working on refining their sound. “We’ve been learning new material and polishing up the classics,” Poplish says.
Another exciting development was the addition of bass player Christian Basso who, according to Poplish, “absolutely tears it up!”
August is Already Gone’s busiest month: among other engagements, they performed at the Garfield County Fair in Rifle and will travel to Nevada at the end of the month for a two-night street party. In September, you can see the band at First Friday in Carbondale and opening for Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband in Silt, to name just a few spots. Says Poplish, “We are so busy we almost don’t know what to do about it, but don’t get me wrong, we love that!”
“What can I say? We’re living the dream!”
Be sure to join Already Gone for the free show this Saturday. Rides and attractions are open until dusk, drink specials will be offered, and if you bring at least one can of food to donate you can ride the tram for free! Visit Music on the Mountain for more information.
