Live Music is a staple in our mountain town. Hearing the roar of funk, electronic, bluegrass, rock, and hip hop bounce off the mountain walls is a regular occurrence. Because of this, you can be sure to find live music on your next vacation if you know where to look!
Of the many shows coming up this month, some of the best local favorites include The Soul Rebels as part of the Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series and several shows at the Belly Up. Below, find my local’s favorite list of each venue’s upcoming shows! (Click the yellow button below each artist/band to watch a live performance of their music!)
Bud Light Hi-Fi Series
The Bud Light Hi-Fi Series is a free event this winter including four Concerts. Kicking it off with some soul on February 25th is The Soul Rebels. This feel-good, groovy band of eight will have you dancing the night away. Based out of New Orleans, The Soul Rebels are the perfect way to celebrate Mardi Gras. Join them in Snowmass Base Village at 4:30 pm (their opener, VTG ft. Garland, will begin at 3:30).
The Belly Up is the most intimate and popular concert venue around. They bring in all sorts of acts from live music to theater and comedy. This month, they have several live acts including Lupe Fiasco, Lil Smokies, and STS9 to name a few. Check out each of these unique artists below and book your ticket today! With it being a small venue, tickets sell out quick especially when such high quality!
Lupe Fiasco is a Grammy Award winning American rapper known as a visionary in his work. On top of this, he is an entrepenuer, record producer, and advocate for impoverished communities working to bring creative opportunities to the streets. His upbeat tunes will have you loose in your dance shoes this February the 9th.
The Lil Smokies have the energy of a rock band with the influence of the 70s. This blugrass traveling band willl keep the night rolling with classic hit songs done up in unique ways and some of their own creative masterpieces. It is a sound that is familiar and yet unique. Enjoy the liveliness of summer Bluegrass this winter with Lil Smokies on February 12th.
One of the most sought after shows of any mountain town, Sound Tribe Sector 9, better known as STS9, never disappoints. They bring big ideas and galactic sounds to the stage. A show that takes you out of this world and an energy that fills the room and your soul. This is music at it's finest. And, with one show already sold out, be sure to book today for your spot on February 14th. And quote, "We are one, made from dust of the stars / down here we bear the weight of the pain and the scars / just want to live with nothing to hide / every one of us a universe inside.".
