Blues, Brews & BBQ with Bullets & Belles and Screen Door Porch

BBB13_Simple_Web_RGB

Join us on the Patio at Earl’s Lodge Sunday, June 29th for our Blues, Brews & BBQ FREE Concert Series with Bullets & Belles playing “Neo-Doo-Wop-Folk” followed up by Screen Door Porch playing americana roots-rock. Bullets & Belles start at 12:30 pm with Screen Door Porch at 3:30 pm. For more information about Bullets & Belles and Screen Door Porch, check out the following links:

***No outside food or beverage allowed in the music venue or the lodge.  Utah State Law prohibits the possession and consumption of outside alcohol including beer & wine on premise.  Bags may be subject to search at the music venue gate and any alcohol or outside food may be confiscated.  Dogs are allowed in the music venue, but they must be on a leash at all times, and they must stay on the grassy areas.  Dogs are never allowed in the lodges or on the patio, with the exception of service dogs.

Screen Door Porch:

Screen Door Porch delivers a Wyoming-grown fusion of soulful Americana, Roots-Rock and Country-Blues that has been likened to “Gillian Welch meets The Band, with Ryan Adams and Bonnie Raitt hanging out backstage” (605 Magazine). The core female/male singer-songwriter duo of Seadar Rose & Aaron Davis thrive in a space that houses colorable harmonies, a diverse bag of acoustic & electric instrumentation, and  “a sort of Lennon/McCartney arrangement and get it right every time” (Americana UK). SDP’s two studio albums—Screen Door Porch (2010) and The Fate & The Fruit (2012)—were internationally recognized in a combined seven “Best Albums of the Year” lists, and hovered in the Top 25 of the Euro-Americana Chart and Top 30 of the Roots Music Report Roots-Rock Chart.

Bullets & Belles:

http://bulletsandbelles.com

Bullets & Belles is Neo-Doo-Wop-Folk. Think Amy Winehouse and Dion & The Belmonts, but also Arcade Fire and Les Paul. Their sublime three-part vocal harmonies and deeply-felt poetic lyrics seamlessly bend through the rules of genre while always leaving the audience wanting (and often whistling…)

**No dogs or outside food on Earl’s Patio please. State law prohibits outside alcohol.

The Wheeler Brothers:

http://www.wheelerbrothersmusic.com/

Making music continues to be a family affair for Wheeler Brothers. The Austin, TX quintet traces a personal lineage of rock, folk, roots, Americana, and blues on its second full-length album, Gold Boots Glitter [Bismeaux Records], cooking up an irresistible and inimitable gumbo of styles in the process. Marching forward from 2011′s critically acclaimed Portraits, the group—Nolan Wheeler [vocals, guitar], Patrick Wheeler [drums], Tyler Wheeler [bass], A.J. Molyneaux [guitar, lap steel, back up vocals], and Nathan Rigney [guitar, backup vocals]—opens the door even wider for everyone to join the family.

The Congress

 

Evoking emotions that you thought had long passed – the feeling of your first cigarette, or the way you feel listening to a worn vinyl as it warmly crackles against the sound of a summer night – The Congress is naturally compared to many names and styles of years gone by. But drawing such comparisons is, in many respects, a misguided endeavor. Misguided not because you’d be wrong, but because you’d be missing the beautiful point – The Congress are a natural evolution of more than 60 years of purely American music. With a spirit rooted just south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and now calling Denver – “The Queen City of the West” – their home, they’ve got enough soul, grit, and have spent enough time in the woodshed and on the road to call them pretty much whatever you want. But whatever words you think you need to describe their contribution to the American music tradition – save your breath. The Congress play Rock & Roll.
