Chris Bank and Mark Johnson - June 19     DONE

Since Chris and Mark met 25 years ago they have played in a variety of groups together and never fail to keep the toes tappin’ and the heads boppin’. A little Motown, some R&B, with a smattering of jazz, will keep the party hoppin’.

The Switch - June 26    DONE

The Switch is a duo comprised of Holly Guerin and Louie Girardot, both familiar faces in the Roaring Fork Valley's live music scene. Louie and Holly are both accomplished pianists and vocalists and it is these skills that come together to create a unique twist on classic and alternative music from the last 4 decades in an almost "Piano Bar" environment. This is something you don’t want to miss !


The Painters Stage - July 3

Painters Stage duo Noemi and Kristof Kosmowski enjoy playing all kinds of music. A few years back they began playing original material. Many of their of songs have roots in european compositions to eastern gypsy rhythms.

Spinning their own style into familiar songs is what they feel closest to. The gypsy sound and reggae rhythm is the heartbeat of Painters Stage. They have been playing together for 25 years with the same contagious pleasure and passion.


Frank Martin & Aaron Taylor - July 10

Frank Martin and Aaron Taylor bring Americana to life: the heart of country, the fire of bluegrass, the spirit of folk, the passion of blues, the twists of jazz. Martin is one the valley’s favorite songwriters, singers and multi-instrumentalist. His vocals rise to gospel heights, and his guitar and mandolin playing cross genres with fire and finesse. Taylor is the wit and soul of drumming — a musician to watch, as well as hear. Their resume includes four years together in Let Them Roar (formerly All The Pretty Horses).
