Autumn is in full swing but before we abandon summer for the year I wanted to post my last moment of summer fun. This is a post I originally wrote for the Sundance Resort Blog in August. Enjoy!
Sounds of Summer Concert Series by Susan Strayer
Warm weather, good music and relaxing on blanket on a lawn. All these things are synonymous with summer for me and Sundance Resort’s
Sounds of Summer Concert series combines them all in one place.
This month, Sundance has sponsored a free outdoor concert every Sunday afternoon from 4-6:30 pm. Local bands including The Black Lilies, Book on Tapeworm, and The Nate Robinson Trio have shared their music with the Sundance crowd on Ray’s Lawn with the final group, Please Be Human, set to perform this Sunday, August 31st. With the mountain and Ray’s Lift as the perfect background scenery, the bands have brought a great feel to the resort, the perfect end of summer experience.
This past Sunday I packed a picnic and spread our blanket on Ray’s lawn to enjoy the musical talents of the Nate Robinson Trio. A reggae/country/rock band of local renown, the Nate Robinson Trio has been together since 2008, entertaining audiences of all ages.
My kids loved dancing along to the music, while my husband and I relaxed on the lawn. It turns out I didn’t even need to pack a picnic either. Concessions were available thanks to Sundance catering offering sandwiches and burgers for guests to enjoy.
If that kind of music isn’t your thing, don’t worry, each week has brought a different local flavor. The Black Lilies, and Book on Tapeworm have played as well and the final band scheduled is another local favorite, Please Be Human. The last week to enjoy the Sounds of Summer Concerts is this Sunday, August 31st from 4:00 – 6:30 pm.
The warm weather, good company and happy sounds of summer were the perfect way to celebrate the end of this great season. I hope the Sounds of Summer Concerts will become an annual tradition.
Don’t miss the final week of Sundance Resort’s Sounds of Summer Concert Series – Sunday, August 31 between 4:00-6:30 pm with the band Please Be Human.
