Public House Presents a night With Midnight Riderz – A Tribute to the Allman Brothers!! Midnight Riderz is a newly formed super group paying tribute to the great Allman Brothers Band!! The group is made up of some of Denver’s top players including Taylor Scott (Taylor Scott Band), Caton Sollenberger (The Jauntee), Jon Wirtz (Taylor Scott Band), Eric Imbrosciano (Lit Society) and Jiho Han (Taylor Scott Band). Although the group’s main material is ABB, they also take influence from other jambands, soul/funk, outlaw country, jazz and more. Midnight Riderz focuses on deep grooves, ripping guitar solos, great vocals, and mind bending jams!
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!
