Wow, summer is flying by! It’s hard to believe it’s already August, and time for the second half of Music on the Mountain! We’re excited to get back into it, and hope you are too. Make the most of the remaining summer days in beautiful Glenwood Springs, CO by enjoying free live music from some of Colorado’s best bands!
The remainder of the concert series will kick off on August 15 with Fifty50. These hometown favorites have been honored with many Local’s Choice Awards over the years. Their blend of classic, modern and original rock is kicked up a notch with unique vocal harmonies and instrumentals, and they are guaranteed to get you moving! Fifty50 is comprised of Dave Stoltzfus, Beth Getzen Stoltzfus, Dale Loper, Jerry Larsen and Tom Mercer. Dave and Beth were friends before the band got together, and during their time together in the band their friendship turned into love. The couple got married in a surprise ceremony at their house after a Strawberry Days concert in 2007–a perfect reflection of the group’s penchant for spontaneity and fun.
Next up on the lineup for August 22 is The Goodman Band, a hard-rocking trio playing classic rock, specializing in Stevie Ray Vaughn tunes. The group has been described as the fullest sounding three-piece band there is! The Goodman Band takes pride in being able to play pretty much every type of music, and doing it authentically.
Rounding out the rest of the series will be Vidicus Maximus, Derringer, The Milemarkers and finally The Missing Link Band, who traditionally close out Music on the Mountain with a bang. September 13 will feature a special Sunday show with two Christian music bands on the bill, Kings Loyal Band and The Orchard. The music starts a little earlier for this Sunday show, with the first band taking the stage at 4pm, and it promises to be a passionate and uplifting evening.
For the rest of the shows, music starts at 6pm. Can for a Tram starts at 4pm; bring at least one can of food to donate to Lift-Up for a free tram ride to the top! There will be drink specials offered, and rides and attractions are open. For more information, visit Music on the Mountain.
