Moonlight Concert Series – Coal Creek Connection
February 17 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25
Coal Creek Connection is a local band made up of musicians from Crested Butte and Gunnison that has been playing in the valley for several years. They perform a diverse collection of classic rock, country, and Americana cover tunes, as well as a number of original compositions that cover a wide range of influences-jazz flavored, countrified, reggae influenced, as well as some good old rock and roll. Their shows feature high energy musicianship with a focus on tight three part vocal harmonies. There is something for everyone at one of their shows. CCC will be featuring music from their newly recorded compilation of all new original music. Don’t miss it.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
