2009 summer concert lineup

  • June 27, Rusted Root
  • July 17, Greyboy Allstars with Karl Denson
  • July 31, Freddy Jones Band

— Organizers of the Free Summer Concert Series have confirmed a five-concert lineup for 2009.

Alternative jam band Rusted Root starts the series June 27 at the base of Howelsen Hill. Funk and jazz quintet The Greyboy Allstars plays with saxophonist Karl Denson on July 17, and the Chicago-based blues rockers of the Freddy Jones Band take the stage July 31.

The 2009 season marks a return to the base of the Steamboat Ski Area, with blues guitarist Susan Tedeschi playing there Aug. 13. Bluegrass rock 'n' rollers The Avett Brothers close out the series Aug. 20 at Headwall at the ski area.

Series co-organizer Joe Kboudi said the summer's lineup continues a tradition of providing free, community-oriented concerts that showcase diverse musical tastes.

"We always look for the best bands we can find at the best prices. That's always a key for us, and I think we did that again," Kboudi said. The 2009 series offers something for fans of rock, jam, blues and bluegrass bands, he said.

Ahhh the summer concert series. Nothing better than good music to enjoy while sipping my tea, throwing my dog a stick in the river, and worrying about bankruptcy.

Rusted Root SUCKS and is so yesterday(well early '90's)...c'mon! Haven't we done Tedeschi already???? and Freddy Jones????????? please...they would play for free I bet ...they are so yesterday and overdone here....

Denson and Greyboy yea thats awesome!

IMHO this lineup lacks creativity and originality...

sure its free and great and all but not really free....the dba does plan on a return on the investment or this wouldn't happen!
