June 19 – Simplified

When the laid back vibe of Myrtle Beach, SC meets acoustic rock of Lake Michigan, Simplified, the island rock band arrives with a loud and welcoming splash.  With a never-ending tour schedule, including over 3,000 powerhouse, popular performances, Simplified members, with both electric and acoustic acts, are enthusiastic as ever.  From Key West, FL to New York City and throughout the Midwest, their hard work, perseverance and commitment have always been key to their hard earned success. Sequentially, in 2011, their song “Shall We Begin” was featured on ESPN’s ‘Kick off to College GameDay.’  Currently their hit “Gettin Home,” is featured in the video game, NASCAR The Game 2013 and they have been praised as one of Pandora Radio’s top played indie rock bands.

June 26 – Grand Funk Railroad

Known as “The American Band”, the high-energy five-piece group will play forty shows all over the USA this year. Grand Funk Railroad includes original founding members Don Brewer (vocals and drums, writer and singer of the multi-million selling hit, We’re An American Band) and bassist Mel Schacher, “The God Of Thunder”. Joining Don and Mel are true “All Stars”. Singer Max Carl is a rock veteran from 38 Special. Max penned and sang 38’s biggest hit “Second Chance” and was co-founder of California’s legendary Jack Mack and the Heart Attack. Don refers to Max as “the best blue-eyed soul singer on the planet. Lead guitarist Bruce Kulick is best known for his 12 years with KISS and also has credits with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf and Billy Squier. (KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were influenced early on by Grand Funk.) Keyboardist Tim Cashion has a master’s degree in music from the University of Miami. Affectionately called “Dr. Tim”, his credits include stints with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and English soul man Robert Palmer.

July 3 – Wanderlust Spectacular

The Wanderlust Spectacular is the Cirque du Soleil of yoga, a sacred celebratory extravaganza that actively engages the audience to participate with their mind, body, heart, and soul. Through rich imagery, innovative lighting design, and cutting edge music, we will tell the compelling story at the core of Wanderlust’s mission – how to find one’s own true north. This ensemble show features yoga pioneers DJ Drez, Cameron Shayne, Shakti Sunfire, Hemalayaa, MC Yogi, YogaSlackers, AcroYogis, HANNAH and Quixotic dancers. Artistically directed by AcroYoga co-founder Jenny Sauer-Klein, this fully original show will turn you upside down, inside out, and set your heart on fire!

July 10 – Big Sam’s Funky Nation

Snowmass Tourism welcomes Big Sam’s Funky Nation!  Hailing from New Orleans as the former trombone player of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Big Sam always entertains audiences with his exhilarating brand of high-voltage funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop, termed “Noladelic Powerfunk.”  The San Francisco Chronicle asserts “(Big Sam is) the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.”

July 17 – Hot Buttered Rum

Hot Buttered Rum lives for songs. Songs to sing in the shower. Songs to crank through your earbuds at the DMV. Songs to name your babies after, and then make more babies to. The band’s three songwriters — Aaron Redner, Nat Keefe and Erik Yates — spin tales about the good times, the bad times, and the roads in between, and belt them from the heart in three-part harmony. Bryan Horne’s athletic standup bass and Lucas Carlton’s tasteful percussion combine with the acoustic instruments to create what is California’s own acoustic music.

July 24 – Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers

Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers made a needle’s-eye leap onto the national music circuit in 2012, bringing with them a refreshing sound, spirited stage show and wellspring of good vibes, along with a turntable and milk crates stocked with their favorite vintage vinyl for backstage sustenance.
Now, the San Francisco-based band and its striking front woman with a girl-next-door demeanor step out with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, a luminous, heartfelt patchwork of California folk-rock, brisk Americana and show-stopping soul, punctuated with fresh four-part harmonies, crisp rock guitar and Nicki’s soaring, nuanced vocals that some critics say remind them of Linda Ronstadt.  The first record under the banner of the full band, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers is very much a family album, featuring 11 new songs penned by the band members, arranged and produced by Nicki’s husband and the band’s musical director, Tim Bluhm, and recorded at the Bluhm’s Mission Bells studio in San Francisco.

July 31 – California Honeydrops

To those who have seen the California Honeydrops and heard Lech Wierzynski sing and play it may come as a shock that the young frontman was born in Warsaw, Poland. The son of Polish political refugees raised in Chicago and Washington DC, Lech was exposed to wide range of musical influences. “When my dad was growing up in communist Poland in the 40’s and 50’s, old American music was illegal and therefore very cool,” he says. “He passed on the love of old stuff to me: everything from Louis Armstrong to Sam Cooke.”

August 7 – Nathan & the Zydeco Cha-Chas

Growing up in a Creole-speaking home in St. Martinville, Nathan eagerly sought out the music of Zydeco originators such as Clifton Chenier. Later, while recovering from a serious illness, Nathan decided to dedicate himself to learning the accordion. That dedication blossomed into an illustrious career, which now spans three decades.
Nathan formed The Cha-Chas back in 1985, and since then has brought his unique take on this regional South Louisiana music to all corners of the globe. From Lincoln Center in New York to The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Nathan’s music has crossed all barriers to speak to the very heart of his audience.
Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2005, he was honored last year with the Zydeco Music Association’s Lifetime Acheivement Award. The Cha-Chas has been voted the top Festival Band in the country, and have won the coveted Big Easy award for Best Zydeco Band for several years running.

Heavy Hearts for Long Time Aspen Resident


Aspen Times arts and entertainment editor Stewart Oksenhorn, widely admired for his creative storytelling, razor-sharp wit, wide-ranging intellect, and most of all, a deep love and affection for his daughter, died Sunday morning. He was 50.

Oksenhorn’s death stunned and saddened the very community that he had covered with relentless adoration and interest for 20 years.

“The Aspen Times has lost a part of our family, and the community has lost an amazing and genuine man,” said Gunilla Asher, publisher of The Aspen Times. “It will take time for all of us to recover.”

The easy-going Oksenhorn was the ubiquitous writer about town — he regularly attended ballets, art-show openings, plays, films and recitals, among other cultural events. He could fire up a conversation about Monet or Mozart — if that was his company’s pleasure — or his beloved Denver Nuggets and the Grateful Dead.
