Celebrate Red Rocks' 75th Anniversary With Five Killer Performances June 15, 2016 17:28

Today, the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre celebrates it's 75th anniversary, and that's something that simply cannot be overlooked. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a rock structure near Morrison, Colorado, 10 miles west of Denver, where concerts are given in the open-air amphitheatre. There is a large, tilted, disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angled outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9,525 people in between. The amphitheater is owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, Colorado and is located in Red Rocks Park, part of the Denver Mountain Parks system.
The earliest notable rock-and-roll performance at Red Rocks was by The Beatles on August 26, 1964, the only concert not sold out during their US-tour. The beautiful and unique setting has led to the venue becoming a favorite for many performers, including Jimi Hendrix on September 1, 1968. U2 performed at the amphitheatre on June 5, 1983 during their War Tour, in front of a crowd of 9,000 people.
Red Rocks was one of the favored venues for The Grateful Dead and the venue has become a traditional stop for many subsequent jam bands. Widespread Panic holds the record for the most sold out performances at Red Rocks (48 shows). Blues Traveler has played the venue every Fourth of July since 1993, except 1999 when lead singer and harmonica player John Popper was unable to play due to heart surgery. The venue has also seen numerous performances from the likes of Phish, My Morning Jacket, Tedeschi Trucks Band, String Cheese Incident, Umphrey's McGee, STS9, and so many more.
In honor of Red Rocks' 75th anniversary, we've included video footage of five of our favorite performances below. We feel confident that we can speak for the all music fans when we say, "Thank you, Red Rocks, for providing an endless amount of memories to music fans far and wide!"

Throwback: String Cheese Incident + Friends Jam On "Quinn The Eskimo" At Christmas Jam (2012) January 21, 2016 15:39

Today, we look back on one of our fondest musical memories, the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam in 2012. The annual charity event, hosted by Warren Haynes, has been held in Asheville, North Carolina every year since 1988. The first show was dubbed, "The Christmas Jam: Musician's X-Mas Reunion" and was held at 45 Cherry, a local club in Asheville, on December 22 1988. Some of the artists at the first Christmas Jam were Warren Haynes, Crystal Zoo, The Stripp Band and the McBad Brothers Band.
This event has continued to grow every year and is now dubbed "Warren Haynes Presents: The Christmas Jam". The show sells out in a matter of hours every year. Because of the fantastic growth, it is currently held at the U.S. Cellular Center (formerly known as the Asheville Civic Center), and continues to feature artists and friends Haynes has played with over the years. In 2008 and 2013, the event has featured two nights of music, in celebration of the 20th and 20th anniversaries.
This particular year was the 24th Annual Christmas Jam, boasting a lineup featuring The Blind Boys of Alabama, Sheryl Crow, The Avett Brothers, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, the String Cheese Incident, and the Warren Haynes Band. Special guests for the evening included Anders Osborne, Nigel Hall, Karl Denson, Mike Barnes, Count M'butu, and Kevin Kinney.
After a smoking hot set of Cheese, where many of us heard songs like "Rosie" and "Song In My Head" for the first time, the band returned to the stage with Haynes (guitar), Nigel Hall (keyboards), Karl Denson (sexophone), Count M'butu (percussion), and Mike Barnes (guitar) for a family-style superjam on the Bob Dylan classic, "Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)." This one never gets old, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
