8 amazing outdoor music venues via CNN Travel

12 Jun

If you’re at all like me, sometimes it’s not just about the band or artist you are going to see in concert but rather the venue may be the bigger draw.  When you get the holy grail of venues and your favorite band together, it quite possibly can be the best show you’ve ever seen. And with that, here are 8 amazing outdoor music venues complied by CNN Travel.

I can’t, won’t and will never argue with the first one on the list, Red Rock Amphitheatre.  I’ve seen shows in all different places, spaces, countries, etc. but nothing compares to Red Rocks.  I recall driving up to the venue with my head out the window like a little kid pulling up to Disney World.  It truly is a magical place and I hope everyone gets to experience a show there at least once.


New Music: Zach Heckendorf – “All The Right Places”

25 Apr

Let’s chalk singer-songwriter Zach Heckendorf as a name to keep an eye on.  He has played to thousands at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and has shared stages with John Butler Trio, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Brandi Carlile, Guster, Mat Kearney, Barenaked Ladies, and is slated to open for Michael Franti this summer! Plus his record, The Cool Down, he recorded with Brett Dennen.  Not too shabby for a 19-year old.


TONIGHT: Furthur at The Joint

4 Oct

Awww yeah, looking forward to an exciting night ahead as Furthur rolls into town for what will be a fun filled evening of music at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel. After jamming Red Rocks in Colorado for three nights last week, we shall soon see what the fellas have up their sleeves for tonight’s shindig. It has been a little over a year since Furthur last graced the stage at The Joint and if it’s anything like that show, tonight should be another special one.  Curtain goes up at 8 p.m.

New Music: John Butler Trio Live at Red Rocks DVD/CD

20 Jul

The wait is over.  A year after performing in front of their largest audience in the US at what I consider to be the greatest music venue in the world, Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado, the John Butler Trio have released a DVD/CD commemorating the momentous occasion.
