Join Epic Rides and the City of Grand Junction for a complete lineup of music from 10a - 8p on Saturday, August 30th in downtown Grand Junction. This day of rock steady music and mellow vibes includes a canned good drive for the Community Food Bank of Grand Junction. Epic Rides respectfully requests ALL attendees bring two canned goods per person for donation.
What better way to cap off an unforgettable day of riding world-class singletrack than taking in the melodic fashionings of four terrific bands. The 2nd annual Grand Junction Off-Road presented by U.S. Bank will host a full day of free live music in downtown Grand Junction with popular local performers and an unforgettable national touring headlining band to end the evening.
The venue is perfect for reveling in the day's effort as participants cross the nearby finish line from their challenging mountain bike ride featuring the world class Lunch Loops and even better for the boot scoot'n type as the sun sets over Colorado National Monument directly west of the outdoor stage.
Once the concert concludes, attendees are encouraged to make the short migration from the beer garden to Main Street, home of a number of culinary destinations and watering holes.
With thousands of mountain bikers, plus their friends and family members in town for the weekend, Grand Junction, Colorado is a town packed with mellow bike culture vibes and promise for a better world through healthy pursuits and outdoor living.
Headlining the Grand this year, and coming off a successful summer tour including stops at Bonaroo Music Festival and the Hangout Music Fest is Jamestown Revival; a hardy duo from Austin, Texas who capture the essence of Western frontier living with foot-stomping rhythms and soothing harmonies. With recent appearances on Conan O’Brien and praise from both Rolling Stone and Last Call with Carson Daly, the Southern soul blended with Western rock sound of Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance is getting noticed on airwaves across the country.
Taking the stage at 6p on Saturday, August 30, Jamestown Revival will play a host of tunes off their first album, Utah, including “California (Cast Iron Soul)”, a song that captures the essence of the bands influences including Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Everly Brothers and fellow Texans Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Guy Clark. Anchored by a big fat backbeat, the sounds of steel guitar and a warm Fender Rhodes keyboard will be a perfect pairing for Colorado’s Western Slope city of Grand Junction.
