Bud Light Rocks the Boat Concerts Celebrate 15 Years of Free Music

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO-December 16, 2013-Live music fills the mountains during Steamboat’s ski and snowboard season as the Bud Light Rocks the Boat Free Concert Series kicks off its fifteenth year of featuring free concerts from the hottest bands around throughout the season.

“It’s hard to believe we’re celebrating the 15th year of free music in Steamboat through the Bud Light Rocks the Boat shows at the Steamboat Ski Resort,” said Rob Perlman, senior vice president of sales & marketing for Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “This is an amazing line-up of talented artists and there isn’t a better way to enjoy an incredible outing in the mountains than by combining Champagne Powder® snow with plenty of sunshine and a free concert by some of the hottest bands around.” 

The season kicks off with a healthy dose of outlaw honky tonk mixed in with a whole lot of Rock n’ Roll as Shooter Jennings, the son of music legend Waylon Jennings, performs for the annual Cowboy Downhill, celebrating its 40th Anniversary this season.

Steamboat turns up the heat during March with weekly shows by The Pimps of Joytime, The Wailers, New Orleans Suspects, Naia Kete and the Giving Tree Band. 

In April, Steamboat’s Springalicious Festival closes out the Bud Light Rocks the Boat Concert Series with a high-energy on-stage performance by Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds; followed a week later by an end-of-season closing weekend double header featuring MarchFourth Marching Band on Saturday and G. Love and Special Sauce on Sunday.
