2016 Beaver Creek Music Experience Lineup

 

 June 29th - The Vail Valley Band

 Vail Valley Band Beaver Creek   The Vail Valley Band was started when Beth Swearingen left the Broadway stage to marry a ski patrolman.  A very pregnant Beth needed a musical outlet and decided to introduce herself to Don Watson (The world’s longest running apres-ski show).  Don was performing at “Club Chelsea” in Vail and he immediately recognized the potential.  Soon after Dave Andersen (the Skipdog) introduced his mandolin to the trio and relocated from the Chicago blues scene. Peter Fontanese completed the band adding the bass and his long time experience with the Vail music scene

The members of this wonderfully diverse band live in Vail Valley and represent our community all over the world.  They delight audiences with a range of music that always seems perfect for the occasion. They can easily shift to whatever musical style is suggested by the audience.  YES! This means you get to make requests!  Believe me; you will be amazed by the range of music that is at their fingertips.  The Vail Valley Band reflects the eclectic beauty of our valley and the diverse people who live here.

 July 6th - Motherfolk
 Motherfolk Beaver Creek   Motherfolk started as Nathan Dickerson and Bobby Paver. The two college friends had both been writing songs, and when they brought them to each other, it became apparent that the themes lined up. Because of this, the writing project known as Motherfolk began. In 2013, the duo made frequent trips to Nashville to record their debut album at Dirty Denim Studio with producer Stephen Keech. In early 2014, Jacob Bremer and Rich Miller joined the band, completing the roster needed to perform live. In February of 2014, the debut Self-titled album was released. Since then, Motherfolk has toured all across the nation and have made a name for themselves and their incredibly high-energy live performances.
 July 13th - Hazel Miller
 Hazel Miller Beaver Creek   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 27 years;  ” Whether she is singing blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul”.
 
Hazel began her 4I-year career in Louisville, Kentucky, where she rose to the top of the music scene. There she opened for popular artists such as Lonnie Brooks, James Brown, Temptations, Earl Klugh, Bob James, Lou Rawls and many others.  Most recently, Hazel opened for Jay Leno. 

5280 Magazine readers made Hazel Miller Band their choice for best band in Denver 2010.  The Northern Colorado Big 8 newspapers readers voted her the best band & performer for 2010.  The city of Denver singled out Hazel as one of 150 people who make Denver a better place to live.  She’s been given several awards for artistic excellence: Best Independent Blues-R&B Recording- 2002; Outstanding Performer at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Westword’s Best Blues and R&B Artist 1995 through 2008; first inductee into the Westword Hall of Fame 2001, Daily Camera’s and Boulder Weekly’s Readers Choice for Best Artist 2000 through 2004. 

She has sung with or opened for such artists as Leon Russell, B. B. King, India Aire, Julian Lennon, John Hammond Jr., Lucy Bleu Tremblay, Peter, Paul and Mary, Stanley Jordan, John Mayall, Charlie Musselwhite, Leo Kottke, Bob Weir, Herbie Hancock, Pop Staples, Five Blind Boys of Alabama, Nil Lara, Roger Clifton, Nancy Griffith, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Lonnie Brooks, Lou Rawls, Rickie Lee Jones, James Taylor, Spyro Gyro, Joe Sample, Little Ed and the Blues Imperials, Michael McDonald, and many more.
 July 20th - Rob Drabkin
 Rob Drabkin Beaver Creek   The music of Rob Drabkin is spirited in nature, light from the heart and rocking on the six-string acoustic.  The 70’s style afro is as unavoidable as his ubiquitous grin, but it’s his music that's put him on national tours and landed him sets at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in his hometown of Denver, Colorado.  Rob and his band have become a force in the live scene, touring nationally as headliners and supporting acts such as John Butler Trio, Trevor Hall and Big Head Todd & The Monsters.  Rob's full band performances are high-energy blending improvisation and rock while retaining an earnest singer/songwriter background.

Rob has made impressive creative strides in the past few years, and his most recent 2015 album shows just how far his live performances have come. With earnestness and originality, Drabkin and his band thrive within stylistic excursions that range from driving folk rock to understated experiments with classical musicians. His powerful vocals and syncopated guitar drive the soaring opener, "For You I Would Die" and his strumming complements top-notch keyboard and percussion work. “Little Steps,” the title track, takes the listener from zero to 60 on the first downbeat as a lively horn section heralds a sophisticated, feel good rock song. Rob has assembled a dream powerhouse band; featuring Brian McRae on drums, Bijoux Barbosa on bass, Eric Moon on keys and Dave Preston on electric guitar. Rob's career is in full motion as his latest effort "Live Vol. II" prepares him for his next national tour.
