Known for their captivating live performances, San Antonio-based MOTHERSHIP goes to great lengths to recreate the authentic feel of a Zeppelin concert during the band’s heyday in the mid -70s; including an elaborate laser, light and fog show, complete with theremin, bow solos, and more. Like Zeppelin, the band also arranges intricate medleys of popular rock anthems into the show, keeping each show fresh, energetic and full of surprises. The bottom line: MOTHERSHIP is a unique experience not to be missed!
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.
