Next week is an excellent week of live music to hear across the Front Range. Besides the local fare, there are some fantastic festivals happening over the second weekend of June, including two of my personal favorites, Greeley Blues Jam and LoHi Music Festival. As per usual, I have marked my personal recommendations with an *, after the venue’s name. For a more complete list of incredible shows coming to the area over the next few months, check-out the Coming Attractions page. The Festival Time page is a pretty comprehensive compilation of all of the fests in our spectacular state and some outside of it, but probably worth the drive, nonetheless. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!!!
HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
