AvonLIVE! Free Concert Series Wednesday, August 17th presents The Jauntee
The Town of Avon presents free community concerts
Avon, CO – Join us at the Avon Performance Pavilion in Harry A. Nottingham Park for another sensational performance at AvonLIVE! on Wednesday, August 17th starting at 5:00 p.m. There are only three more AvonLIVE! concerts this summer so make it a plan to be entertained by this week’s headliner, The Jauntee, who makes each performance an exciting prospect of a new shared experience with bust-outs, fresh jamming, poignant covers, and accessible songwriting. The Jauntee performs at 7:00 p.m.
In a world filled with instant gratification, gimmicky over saturation and a lack of true improvisation, The Jauntee pays tribute to music’s ability to transcend simple entertainment and cultivate a truly distinctive experience. The Jauntee has fostered a musical community based on a breadth of original material that engages fans through nightly exploration and risk taking. Averaging over one hundred shows a year, with each containing a unique set list and their own special improvisational moments, the band is constantly expanding upon what defines them and their live performances.
With almost a decade’s worth of touring experience; appearances at major festivals such as Peach Fest, Catskill Chill, and Resonance; and 36 states toured with stops at national touring staples such as Brooklyn Bowl, Georgia Theatre, and the Paradise Rock Club, The Jauntee have been nurturing a fanbase of dedicated followers who are inspired by their music and willing to travel to see what the band has in store next. Fans that thoroughly analyze their music, track their set lists, and passionately promote their music. The Jauntee makes each night an exciting prospect of a new shared experience with bust-outs, fresh jamming, poignant covers, and accessible songwriting.
Opening for The Jauntee is Hardscrabble whose music can best be described as pure Colorado bluegrass. The band has made a name for itself by offering a unique blend of original songs mixed with traditional bluegrass anthems, and colorful renditions of crowd favorites. They deliver a lively show aimed at audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.
Hardscrabble is influenced by music from a variety of different genres, and that is evident in their shows. Moreover, they always try to have fun up there and keep the audience engaged. You will hear them play Hardscrabble originals, as well as traditional bluegrass anthems by Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe, and Flatt & Scruggs. In addition, HS mixes in ‘newgrass’ favorites by artists like The Punch Brothers, Gillian Welch, The Infamous Stringdusters, and Yonder Mountain String Band; as well as occasional rock tunes from The Marshall Tucker Band.
The Town of Avon is honored to once again bring the AvonLIVE! free community concert series to the Avon Performance Pavilion, at Harry A. Nottingham Park, on Wednesdays through August 31st, 2022.
