The free summer concerts at the Vasquez Stage in Sandstone Park begin tonight Thursday, July 22 at 6:30 p.m. The concerts are put on by the Lyons Parks & Recreation Department, and this year marks the 11th anniversary of the always-popular series. Tonight’s concert will feature the music of local bluegrass band, Steamboat Zephyr.
It has become a Lyons’ summer tradition to grab the kids, dog, camp chairs, a blanket and a picnic dinner and come down to the park to listen to some great local musicians, socialize with your friends and neighbors and enjoy the cool Colorado summer evenings. The concert series runs every Thursday night through August 26. Next week, July 29, will be a special “Uke Festival” with Gadzukes. Romano Paoletti Band will entertain on August 5, with the Blue Canyon Boys playing on August 12, Gypsy Jazz with Rue on August 19, and the Blue Mountain Ranch Hands will close out the series on August 26. Make Sandstone Park your Thursday evening destination for the next six weeks, you won’t be disappointed.
