WEST END BLEND
Since their conception, CT-based Funk/Soul band West End Blend has been playing their version of Funk and Soul in venues all over the Northeast. Fronted by vocalist Erica T. Bryan, the band pays homage to classic throwback sounds while adding their own distinct vibe and flair. Behind her, the Blend packs two guitars, a two-piece horn section, bass, keyboards and drums onto stages every night. From humble beginnings in an epic sweaty funky basement dance party, the Blend’s goal has always been to bring that same atmosphere to every show ever since.

torchlightandfireworks2

There is a lot going on at Mount Snow Vermont this weekend besides just great skiing. Something fun for everyone

 

Friday, February 16

6 pm–9 pm: Open Mic Night at Snow Barn

7 pm: Beer Pairing Dinner with Stone Corral at 1900′ Burger

Join us for a culinary experience that will have your taste buds jumping for joy. We know that you love beer. So do we. Great beer is even better with great food. It is a common misconception that wine is the only beverage that food can be effectively paired with. On the contrary, beer actually has far more complex flavors and nuances that can be accentuated when accompanied by the proper food. That’s why our Executive Chef and his team have hand-picked a few of their favorite beers to bring you the Beer Pairing Dinner Series at 1900′ Burger at Mount Snow Vermont.

Dinner will be five gourmet courses paired with beers from Stone Corral. Your hosts will introduce each course and describe what you will be eating and drinking, and why they chose to pair them together.

There are a limited number of seats available for each event so advance reservations are required. We don’t want you to miss out on your chance to enjoy this awesome experience.

The five course dinner is served at 7 p.m | $70 per person + tax and gratuity.

gangoftheives2

High energy and an unforgettable live performance is the hallmark of these Vermont funk rockers, who fuse a new breed of rock and roll with a vibrant instrumentation to create a powerful sound palatable to audiences of all ages. The key to the Gang’s universal appeal is their infectious sense of fun and showmanship, delivered with a message that inspires and encourages positivity. Featuring an electric violin and one man horn section, the Gang blends a variety of genres into catchy tunes anyone can sing or dance along to.

The band’s new record, titled“ Born to Be Loud” was released in September 2016 and immediately charted on Relix/Jambands.com’s top 30, recently moving all the way up to #4. The album received a rave review from Vermont’s premiere publication Seven Days. The Gang also released a super hero themed music video for their song ‘Work Together’ exclusively through Relix Magazine.

Gang of Thieves recently finished their “Work Together Tour”, where they visited 40 cities across the nation. Along the way, they volunteered their time at local food shelters, animal hospitals, and community oriented projects, with a goal of making a positive impact on the neighborhoods they visit. The Gang hopes to continue these efforts as the “Work Together movement”.

riceanamericanband2

Rice – an American Band was born in the summer of 2014 as a few friends got together to jam, and liked the results. A mutual admiration society developed and a love of performing music together was created.

The band plays a combination of originals and covers including material from classic bands like Pink Floyd, the Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Ray Vaughn. But lesser known material from bands like Woodbox Gang and International Anthem will play to fans like originals though they are written by past indie bands.

9 pm: Wild Adriatic at Snow Barn

wildadriatic2

Rooted in the rowdy spirit of rock & roll, Wild Adriatic has built an international audience on a combination of groove, grit, and guitar-heavy swagger. With the power trio’s newest album, Feel, bandmates Travis Gray, Rich Derbyshire, and Mateo Vosganian update the sound of their influences — from Seventies rock to Motown to soul — for a contemporary audience, taking influence from the past but never losing sight of the present. They aren’t revivalists; they’re modern men, carrying the torch of melodic, riff-ready, high-energy rock into new territory.
From the psychedelic “Chasing a Ghost” to the mellow, horn-filled “Come Baby Baby” — the latter song featuring blasts of brass from the West End Horns — Feel offers up 11 new songs of modern, analog, groove-heavy rock, with Wild Adriatic taking inspiration from breakups, friendships, new relationships, tour stops, and even politics. “Appleton” finds the guys paying tribute to the Wisconsin town that’s hosted some of their most most memorable shows, while songs like “Some Nerve” and “Hurricane Woman” channel the influence of guitar greats like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Walsh. Much of the album came together during five separate writing retreats, including treks to Virginia, Texas and Wisconsin. Throughout it all, the songs were written collaboratively, molded by a band of longtime friends who, more than a half-decade into their career, are still turning over new leaves.

21+, doors open at 8pm, show starts around 9pm

Tickets are available online for $10. Ticket will also be available at the door with limited quantities.

Mount Snow Concert Series

strange Machines

Bud Light Concert Series – Strange Machines

Enjoy rock and reggae music from Strange Machines starting at 9 p.m.

Boston-born, New England based quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene. What started as a band focused on rock and reggae has slowly melded into a true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to funk, livetronica, heavy rock and a multitude of other genre’s, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance. Their original songs are nuanced by creative composition, practiced precision, and a looseness that allows them to truly explore the music they create.

They have shared the stage with national-touring acts such as Dopapod, Twiddle, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, TAUK, Deep Banana Blackout, John Brown’s Body, and more. Strange Machines have carved out their own niche in the east coast music scene and show no signs of slowing down.

Strange Machines are set to release a new album Fall of 2017. Founding member Mike MacDonald and long time keyboardist Christian Perron, with the additions of Craig Holland on bass and Isaac Civitello on drums, have honed in their sound and hit their stride as a four piece. “Voice of Color”, the bands first full length release, is a representation of what the band has developed into, diving further into progressive experimental rock and funk more than ever before. Striving to consistently deliver a high energy and engaging live performance, the band has continued to gain momentum in the Northeast and beyond. This album aims to capture the diversity and big sound you will experience at a Strange show.

“Strange Machines is known for powerful, high-energy live performances that explore the depths of their music and cater to a breadth of listeners. None of the band’s beloved characteristics are lost on the album—rather, Voice of Color offers precisely executed arrangements of Strange Machines originals while still embodying the looseness and exploration you’d find at a live performance.” – Live For Live Music

Tickets available online for $12. Tickets will be $15 at the door if still available. Online ticket sales will end at 11:59 p.m. on January 26.
