Here’s an overview of this summer’s shows. We can’t wait to see you all there!
Saturday, June 29, 4:30 pm Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real – This exuberant 24-year-old phenom returns to the Tetons with his powerhouse rock ‘n’ roll outfit Promise of the Real to kick off JacksonHoleLive 2013 with a bang. Come ready to rock with an all-American rock band that loves to pay homage to Jimi Hendrix and Neil Young. Opening for POTR will be our own indie folk band The Flannel Attractions. A full day of fun is in store before the show with the Outerlocal Summer Games.
Thursday, July 4, 2 pm Old Crow Medicine Show – The iconic bluegrass band headlines 8 hours of free music for your Independence Day Celebration! After the Independence Day Parade and other downtown activities, we’ll kick off the day with Teton Valley’s Thomas Sneed with special guest Ben Winship, followed by local band One Ton Pig. Next Up, Young Dubliners will perform an afternoon headlining set followed by a live simulcast of the Grand Teton Music Festival Symphony Orchestra‘s traditional July 4th performance as shown on Wyoming Public Television. Talented singer/songwriter Parker Millsap sets the stage for evening headliner Old Crow Medicine Show. When the sky turns dark, enjoy fireworks from the Jackson Hole Jaycees.
Sunday, July 14, 5 pm Steve Earle and the Dukes (& Duchesses) – This three-time Grammy award winner has penned songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, Vince Gill, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others. In 1986, his debut record Guitar Town soared to No. 1 on the country charts and established the term ‘new country.’ What followed was an exciting and diverse array of more than 20 releases, including Copperhead Road and most recently, I’ll Never Get Out of this World Alive and Low Highway. Don’t miss Earle’s signature gritty vocals and the raw energy of the Dukes (& Duchesses). The show kicks off with Jackson’s own Major Zephyr. Then, enjoy the fun dark lyrics and vocal and instrumental melodies of husband and wife duo The Mastersons.
Saturday, August 3, 5 pm Robert Walter’s 20th Congress Formed to showcase Robert’s composing skills, the 20th Congress always features an all-star lineup and has become best known for its infectious jazz and funk-filled live performances. Come early to enjoy the inaugural Suds & Sounds Brew Fest! Maw Band opens, a local acoustic rock/funk band with musical influences including Modest Mouse, Dave Matthews, Jack White, and Slightly Stoopid.
Friday, August 23, 5:30 pm – Season Finale Double Bill
Jeff Austin & Friends – Mandolinist Jeff Austin of Yonder Mountain String Band loves nothing better than to improvise on stage. “My ideal sound is between Phish, My Morning Jacket, and Zac Brown Band,” explained Austin, who will share the stage with Danny Barnes (Bad Livers) Eric Thorin (Matt Flinner Trio, Brother Mule), and Allie Kral (Cornmeal).
Also performing on August 23 (and gaining momentum across the nation) is Family of the Year, a California indie-rock band described by Steven Tyler as “The Mamas and the Papas on acid.” This solid group formed unbreakable bonds in a run-down house during their formative years. The band infuses harmonies in voice and beat, bringing to mind classic pop bands like The Smiths, The Byrds, Fleetwood Mac, and the Go-Betweens.
