2017 Beaver Creek Music Experience Lineup

 June 28th - The Altitones
 
  The Altitones were created serendipitously by some of the Vail Valley's transported talent, playing an array of soul rocking, body shaking, mind blowing tunes! Featuring mostly original music, The Altitones bring out a good mix of songs to carry the party on! Brought together from one woman's desire to bring local music to her restaurant in Avon, CO. The band was forged from the same musicians showing up for some unrehearsed jamming every Wednesday. After several weeks of rocking it for the people, and the first official rehearsal, the Altitones were formed!

Providing controlled chaos on lead vocals, rhythm and lead guitar, Memphis, Tennessee born Tommy "Gun" Anderson. Adding flavor and spice, also on vocals, lead and rhythm guitar, Mr. Miami, Mauricio Cadavid. Juggling washboard, percussion and accordion, from the streets of Altoona, PA, Jude "The Dude" Wargo. Keeping time and bringing shenanigans to the drums, Houston Texas runaway, Ben Ray Swonke. Colorado native, Sam Bee, buzzing on vocals and the bass guitar. And the final addition to the band, Brian Jordan (Jordy), also coming to you from Miami, FL, on trumpet and percussion!
 July 5th - Hazel Miller
Hazel Miller 

Hazel Miller is not just a great singer; "She is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought after performer in Colorado for the past 30 years. The Hazel Miller Band was formed more than 2 decades ago.  HMB performs an eclectic blend of Jazz, R&B, Blues and original music. Hazel Miller Band’s music is designed to make the audience dance and sing-along.  They play music that excites and involves the listener.

The first highlight of 2015 was Ms. Miller’s singing of the national anthem at the inauguration of Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, January, 13, 2015.  Later on that night the Governor’s Inaugural Concert featured the Lumineers, String Cheese Incident and Big Head Todd and the Monsters with Ms. Miller.  Ms. Miller performed at the FIS Alpine Ski Championships in Beaver Creek, Colorado on February 15,, 2015; with an estimated international television audience of 180,000,000 viewers.  Ms. Miller has been chosen to record a welcome greeting for visitors taking the trains to the main terminal at Denver International Airport. 

Winter of 2014 Ms. Miller toured with Big Head Todd and the Monsters.  They toured the entire country with great response from audiences. Ms. Miller had a great summer, 2014, of festival appearances in Grand Junction, Del Norte, Pagosa Springs, Frisco, Breckenridge, Erie, Boulder, Telluride, Mississippi, New Mexico and Wyoming.  HMB has appeared many times at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheater as the head liner and as an opener.  Ms. Miller has appeared as a special guest of Big Head Todd and the Monsters for more than 19 years.  This year marks HMB’s second appearance as the opener for The Botanic Gardens Music Series.  Summer 2013 they opened for Al Green and 2014 had them opening for Michael McDonald at the Botanic Gardens in Denver.

Ms. Miller’s music can be heard on many local radio stations, Sirius Radio and XM Radio. 
 July 12th - Kuinka
   A reinvention rather than a refutation, the name Kuinka (coo-WINK-uh) comes from the Finnish for “how”; how does a band bristling with spirited creativity continue to evolve artistically and challenge themselves while staying true to their own roots? For Kuinka, the answer comes in the form of letting go: a joyful acquiescence to faith in their cumulative love of songwriting and shared experience, regardless of genre or instrumentation.  Brothers Zach and Nathan Hamer, along with Miranda Zickler and Jillian Walker, came together in 2014 to form a unique breed of string band; one proudly defiant of preconceived notions of what fits under the label 'Americana'. 

Their 2014 debut The Wild North, which propelled the band out of the woods and on to stages across the country, was followed by their 2016 breakout LP The Heartland. Both albums were recorded at the famed Bear Creek Studio in Woodinville, WA (Fleet Foxes, Metric), and led to featured performances at dozens of festivals and several successful national headlining tours. Home from touring The Heartland, all four found themselves in the midst of major life changes both as people and as artists; moving out of the house they‘d shared for the previous two years to new cities and broadening the total palette from which they draw as musicians. After fleshing out new songs in rehearsal, the band headed to a studio near Portland, OR with the trusted ears of longtime producer Jerry Streeter (Brandi Carlile, The Lumineers). The quartet was joined in the studio with their touring wizard of the woodwinds John Benefiel who handled clarinet and saxophone.

 July 26th - FY5
FY5 Colorado’s FY5 proudly swims in the deep currents of American music-classic bluegrass, tried-and-true honky tonk, country swing and skillfully spun folk tales. While their sound evokes timelessness, it is decidedly contemporary, well-traveled 21st century sensibility that informs their songwriting. Their tunes draw on the bumps, bruises and laugh lines earned when we find ourselves in the “bogs” of back roads, dive bars and long, lonesome nights. 

The band’s recently released 2015 album titled Eat The Moon proves that they consistently bring us “a self-assured vision of American music, rooted in tradition, but pointing to new creative directions that make it vital and relevant in today’s modern world…” as pointed out by Hearth Music.

FY5 is Mike Finders (vocals/guitar), Aaron Youngberg (pedal steel/banjo), Erin Youngberg (bass/vocals), Rich Zimmerman (mandolin), and Ryan Drickey (fiddle), a truly rootsy musical soup, seasoned and thickened for your enjoyment. They have each had success in their own right, but when they joined forces, an American West front-range melting pot of music was born and they continue to forge a path straight through the mountains.

“On Eat The Moon, all these elements combine in a partnership that recalls a time before roots music became watered down or overly polished. FY5’s synergy of styles carries the traditions of what came before with the frontier elements of the West, giving their music a sense of freedom and adventure that sounds fresh to our ears. If you’re searching for the ensemble that will bridge the gap between the Smokies and the Rockies, between East and West, old and new, this is for you." – Hearth Music

 August 2nd - The Brothers Comatose
  Expansive, uplifting, and just downright beautiful, City Painted Gold is one of the most anticipated records of the coming year – at least amongst the loyal fans The Brothers Comatose had won while touring across the country in support of their past two releases.  Infused with a sense of relaxed, experienced confidence, The Brothers Comatose offer a southwestern-tinged, rowdy stringband sound that might just make this your new favorite record before you turn it over to side B. Walking lockstep with their undeniable top-flight musicianship is an easy humility. “It’s just one, big, extended Morrison music party,” they say. Brothers Ben and Alex Morrison, guitar and banjo, and lead vocalists, front this rocking string band that has become a West coast headliner and national touring act in a mere handful of years. With bassmaster Gio Benedetti and stellar accompanists Philip Brezina on fiddle and Ryan Avellone on mandolin, their high energy, audience engaging shows have caught fire with fans from San Diego to Seattle to Salt Lake to Silk Hope, NC and beyond.
 August 9th - Tiffany Christopher
  Tiffany grew up on a horse ranch close to the Mississippi River in Galena, IL. Her father and brother played old country songs around the house while she was young, which she claims was the biggest inspiration for her to begin playing music. She played drums in the high school band, sang in choir, and was writing songs on the guitar at a very young age. Tiffany went to college at the School for Music Vocations in Creston, IA and upon graduation moved south to Springfield, MO. She formed a band and began touring nationally after independently releasing her first album, Alpha. Since then, she has released two more albums and recently put out her first music video featuring her new single, Salty Sweet. She has written over 100 songs.

Tiffany has been performing non-stop since she was sixteen, while managing every aspect of her own music career. She is a self-taught recording engineer/producer, and looks forward to expanding her career in the music industry.
