Lionel Young Band
June 23, 7 p.m.
The Lionel Young Band is an internationally known award winning band from the front range of Colorado. In 2011 they won first place in the band category of the International Blues Challenge (IBC), a competition that pitted them in competition with over 120 blues bands from all over the world. Also, Lionel had won the 2008 IBC in the solo/duo division making him the only one in the history of the Challenge to win it in both divisions. The music that this band plays is mostly blues based, but free from categorization except for the hope that our audience finds it to be really good music.

July 7, 7 p.m.
Bowregard has taken the Colorado bluegrass world by storm, winning both the 2019 Telluride Bluegrass Band Contest and the 2018 Ullrgrass Bluegrass Band Contest within a year of forming. Sweet and mournful vocal harmonies join nimble picking and strikingly original songwriting and arrangements that combine old-time music, progressive new acoustic music, and bluegrass into a truly unique sound unlike anything else on the front range of Colorado. Their onstage energy is undeniable, with the band working a single vocal mic to drive the crowd into a whirlwind that fills the dance floor and doesn’t let up until the last note of the night.
