We invite the community to join us at the Avon Performance Pavilion in Harry A. Nottingham Park on Wednesday, July 13th for our weekly AvonLIVE! free community concert series starting at 5:00 p.m. Local favorite Brothers Keeper is headlining and sure to please with their heart, soul, and rock and roll at 7:00 p.m.
The core band consists of Scott Rednor on guitar, Michael Jude on bass, and John Michel on drums. All three, hailing from an attitude ridden east coast background, have transplanted to the Vail and Roaring Fork Valleys in Colorado for both the mountains and the music.
For the past 15 years, Michael and John have steadily played with the John Oates Band (Hall and Oates) and many other world renown musicians, while Scott has been involved in recording and touring projects on a national level for more than 20 years. Scott now owns Shakedown Bar in Vail where he serves as Music Director bringing in national talent for locals and tourists from around the world. It is there that the trio has made their home amongst an amazing cast of rotating musicians as well as several “Brothers Keeper Featuring Series” shows. The first of the series featured John Popper of Blues Traveler, and Jono Manson.
Opening for Brothers Keeper is Eagle County based band, The Turntable Revue at 6:00 p.m. Joe Bianchi and Terry Armistead, brother and sister duo grew up playing music together...both their parents are musicians so evenings were spent playing guitar and singing. The TV did not work so well anyway.
Jeff Armistead is on the keyboards and not only is the Terry's husband, but he is also the keyboard player for Bonfire Dub. Jeff is one of the most unique keyboard players around having grown up in Detroit and mixing that with the sounds of New Orleans.
Brian Loftus is on the drums. Drummer to famous jazz musician Tony G, this is a drummer that you will notice! Bob Masters - Bass
