Opening day Friday, Nov. 21 is just around the corner at Vail Mountain,, and the resort announced Monday the entertainment for the signature early-season celebration, Vail Snow Daze. This year the resort’s annual festival to kick off the winter season will take place over two weekends, Dec. 12-14 and 19-21, and the lineup will include free concerts from Lukas Nelson and The Wallflowers on Saturday, Dec. 13, and 10,000 Maniacs and Rusted Root on Saturday, Dec. 20.

On Saturday, Dec. 13 Bud Light presents Lukas Nelson and The Wallflowers at Solaris in the heart of Vail Village. Lukas Nelson, American rocker and son of Willie Nelson, and his band P.O.T.R. (Promise of the Real) will get the show started. Nelson and his band have played with the likes of Neil Young, John Fogerty, Bob Weir, B.B. King, and Bob Dylan.“We’re thrilled to announce the entertainment lineup for Vail Snow Daze and get our guests as eager about the start of the 2014-2015 winter season as we are,” said Davy Ratchford, director of marketing at Vail Mountain. “Early season is such a great time to visit the resort. There is a palpable energy in the air when guests return to Vail and get back on the snow for the first time, and what better way to celebrate the kick-off of winter than with free concerts at Vail Snow Daze.”

The Wallflowers will close out the first evening of free concerts at Vail Snow Daze. Fronted by co-founder Jakob Dylan, the Los Angeles-based alternative rock band are now in their 25th year. Over the course of their career The Wallflowers have released six studio albums including hits such as “One Headlight” and “6th Avenue Heartache,” sold more than seven million records worldwide, and have taken home several Grammys.

The following weekend on Saturday, Dec. 20 Pepsi presents live performances from 10,000 Maniacs followed by the eclectic musical powerhouse, Rusted Root.

Kicking off the evening of free live music is the classic, alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs. Throughout their 30-year collaboration, the 10,000 Maniacs have sold more than nine million albums and helped define college rock, creating the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became known as the alternative rock format on FM radio.

The powerhouse ensemble, Rusted Root, will cap off the Snow Daze celebration with a sweat-inducing and hypnotic live performance. With eight albums under their belt, over three million records sold worldwide and countless nights on the road, Rusted Root transcends age, generations, cultures and musical styles. The band has played and toured alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, and The Grateful Dead to name a few.

All Vail Snow Daze concerts are free of charge and will be held at Solaris in the heart of Vail Village. Doors open at 5 p.m. and shows start at 5:30 p.m. each night. The schedule of activities for Vail Snow Daze 2015 will also include the return of the sponsor expo village and gear demos at the base of Gondola One, as well as après and after-dark parties in the Town of Vail.

Vail Snow Daze is presented by Vail Mountain, Pepsi, Bud Light, and the Town of Vail, and sponsored in part by Helly Hansen, GoPro, Mountain Living, Liberty Skis, Colorado Mountain Express, Vail Daily and KZYR.

The Oriental Theater in Denver is hosting a special event to celebrate the birthday of Colorado’s famous dancing painter, Keith ‘Scramble’ Campbell, next Saturday, September 6, 2014.  The guy who people know as the guy who paints at Red Rocks is nationally recognized for his paintings ‘live and in concert’ because he actually attends concerts where he completes paintings during the course of a single performance.

Heads up Colorado music lovers and people who like to dance! Paula Nelson and her band return in March

Another sure sign of Spring — The Paula Nelson Band travels north this month to entertain their Colorado fans! And the number  of fans continues to grow, too. I told two friends and they told two friends and they told two friends, and you get the picture. The shows are just so much fun, people dancing, people drinking, people making out  — and that’s just the band. Their shows have everything, and the music is fantastic.

The band kicks off their tour on Friday, March 21st, in Golden, Colorado at the Buffalo Rose.  This is the band’s first time at the venue, so come out and we can all check it out together and hear some great music.  And dance!  Bring your friends; they’ll thank you later.

The band is promoting their new, long-awaited album, “Under the Influence.” So far, the album has been available at their shows, but soon, any-day-now, the album will be available on iTunes and Amazon!   Stay tuned and get yourself a copy; it is their best ever.  They worked hard on this album, the band has just tightened up and moved to whole new level, with their extensive touring and singing the songs on the road.

Thank you to Rock Angel, for sending this graphic, one of the funniest ones I’ve seen about the two teams from the two states who legalized marijuana. Coincidence? I think not.
