FREE OUTDOOR CONCERT - DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND - AUGUST 20 - K-1 LODGE
Posted on August 16, 2011
Killington, VT -- The Dirty Dozen Brass Band will perform a free concert at the Killington Resort on Saturday, August 20 from 3:30pm to 6pm. The free concert is part of the Town of Killington’s “Cooler In The Mountains” music series presented by Long Trail Brewing Co.
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world famous ensemble, whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances. They have revitalized the brass band in New Orleans and around the world, progressing from local parties, clubs, baseball games and festivals in their early years to touring nearly constantly in the U.S. and in over 30 other countries on five continents. The Dirty Dozen have been featured guests on albums by artists including David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Dr. John and the Black Crowes.
“Cooler In The Mountains” performances are scheduled for every Saturday afternoon, through August 27, and support the greening efforts of Reverb, a non-profit organization which educates and engages musicians and their fans to take action toward a more sustainable future. On Saturday, August 20th when Dirty Dozen Brass Band takes the stage, the Reverb Eco-village will descend on Killington to offer activities aimed at raising awareness of alternative and renewable energy sources. Environmental non-profit groups will help educate concertgoers about the steps they can take to reduce their footprint, and all-natural and organic food producers will sample their products. Killington Resort will present an interactive display to inform guests about how it integrates green practices into its snowmaking and customer service operations.
All of the “Cooler In The Mountains” concerts are free and open to all ages, and guests are encouraged to bring lawn blankets and chairs to enjoy the scenic views. Concert-goers may register to win a 2011-12 Killington Season Pass (no purchase necessary), which will be given away at the conclusion of the concert series.
The “Cooler In The Mountains” concert series is produced by the Town of Killington in conjunction with the Killington Chamber of Commerce, Killington Resort, and IZSTYLE, and sponsored by Long Trail Brewing Company and Casella Waste Systems Inc. The next and final concert of the series features Sister Hazel on August 27. For more information visit www.discoverkillington.com.
