Lamb of God playing at Red Rocks May 24th 26 Apr 2016, 3:39 pm

Lamb of God playing at Red Rocks May 24th


Going to Red Rocks Amphitheater to see Lamb of God the American heavy metal band from Richmond, Virginia! Formed in 1994, the group consists of vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler. The band is considered a significant member of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal movement. Since their formation, Lamb of God has released eight studio albums, one live album, one compilation album and three DVDs. The band’s cumulative sales equal almost two million in the United States, including one album certified Gold by the RIAA. In 2010 and 2011 the band received Grammy nominations for songs from their 2009 album Wrath. They also received a nomination in 2016 for their song “512”. Lamb of God has toured with the Ozzfest twice. Other appearances include Download Festival and Sonisphere Festival in the UK, Soundwave Festival, Mayhem Festival 2010 and Gigantour. From 2008 to 2010 they toured as part of Metallica‘s World Magnetic Tour. Although Lamb of God’s genre is a major point of disagreement among fans and critics alike, they are mainly considered groove metal. John Campbell, on the Walk With Me in Hell DVD, says that Lamb of God is “a punk band that plays heavy metal”, while Chris Adler refers to Sacrament as a speed metal album. Burn the Priest and early Lamb of God has been called a fusion thrash metal, death metal and hardcore punk, as well as “grindcore and death metal for the hardcore kids”.  The band incorporates thrash metal elements, which was shown as a direction on Resolution and Wrath. The band has been described by a few critics as metalcore.  We always stay at the Arrowhead Manor when seeing a concert at Red Rocks.  Beautiful property and very easy to get to Red Rocks.

Bad Company Playing Red Rocks May 15 26 Apr 2016, 3:31 pm

Bad Company Playing Red Rocks May 15


Bad Company will be at the Red Rocks Amphitheater and Joe Walsh will be there too!  Make it a date and stay overnight at the beautiful Arrowhead Manor B&B.  There was a rumor that singer Paul Rodgers was so enamored with the Jeff Bridges film Bad Company that he chose to name his band after it, but Rodgers, in an interview with, explained that the idea came from a book of Victorian morals that showed a picture of an innocent kid looking up at an unsavory character leaning against a lamppost. The caption read “beware of bad company”. Bad Company consisted of four seasoned musicians: two former members of Free, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke; former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs; and ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell. The band signed to Swan Song Records/Atlantic Records in North America, and with Island Records in other countries. (Island Records had until that time been the UK home to both Free and King Crimson, as well as to Mott the Hoople for their first four albums; Atlantic, in turn, released King Crimson’s and Mott’s early albums in the US through a licensing agreement with Island). Atlantic/Warner Music would later acquire the non-North American rights to the band’s catalogue. The band’s 1974 debut album Bad Company was recorded at Headley Grange, Hampshire in Ronnie Lane’s Mobile Studio. The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 in the US, and number 3 in the UK Albums Chart, spending 25 weeks in the UK charts. The album has been certified five times platinum in the US, and became the 46th–best-selling album of the 1970s. The singles “Can’t Get Enough” and “Movin’ On” reached No. 5 and No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 1975 their second album, Straight Shooter, reached No. 3 in both the UK and the US, and also went platinum in the US. The album also spawned two hit singles, “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad” at No. 36 and the slower “Feel Like Makin’ Love” at No. 10. Joseph Fidler “Joe” Walsh (born November 20, 1947) is an American singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. In a career spanning more than 40 years, Walsh has been a member of five successful rock bands: James Gang, Barnstorm, the Eagles, The Party Boys, and Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. In the 1990s, he was also a member of the short-lived supergroup The Best. He has also experienced success both as a solo artist and prolific session musician, being featured on a wide array of other artists’ recordings. In 2011, Rolling Stone placed Walsh at the number 54 spot on its list of “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” In the middle 1960s, after attending Kent State University, Walsh played with several local Ohio-based bands before reaching a national audience as a member of the James Gang, whose hit song “Funk#49” highlighted Walsh’s skill as both a guitarist and vocalist. After the James Gang broke up in 1972, Walsh formed a band, Barnstorm, with Joe Vitale, a college friend of Walsh’s from Ohio, and Kenny Passarelli, a bassist from Colorado, where Walsh had settled as his home after leaving Ohio. While the band would stay together for three albums over three years, their works were marketed as Walsh solo projects. The last Barnstorm album, 1974’s So What contained significant guest contributions from several members of the Eagles, a group that had recently hired Walsh’s producer, Bill Szymczyk. At Szymczyk’s suggestion, Walsh joined the Eagles in 1975 as the group’s keyboardist and guitarist following the departure of their founding member Bernie Leadon, with Hotel California being his first album with the band. In 1998 a reader’s poll conducted by Guitarist magazine selected the guitar solos on the track “Hotel California” by Walsh and Don Felder as the best guitar solos of all time, Guitar World magazine listed it at eighth of the Top 100 Guitar Solos. This is going to be the best show of the year!

Thievery Corporation at Red Rocks May 13th 26 Apr 2016, 3:23 pm

Thievery Corporation at Red Rocks May 13


We are flying into Colorado from D.C. to see our favorite group live at the Red Rocks amphitheater on May 13th!  We are also staying at the Arrowhead Manor.  A beautiful B&B close to Red Rocks.  Thievery Corporation is a Washington, D.C. based recording artist and DJ collective consisting of Rob Garza, Eric Hilton, and their supporting artists Rob Myers, Loulou Ghelichkhani, Natalia Clavier, Frank ‘Booty Lock’ Mitchell, Mr. Lif, Jeff Franca and Ashish Vyas. Their music style mixes elements of dub, acid jazz, reggae, Indian classical, Middle Eastern, hip hop, electronica and Brazilian. The duo has publicly stated their fondness of the Brazilian culture in interviews and liner notes of their releases, especially of the 60’s Bossa Nova music movement. Some of their earlier recordings even had specific artwork paying homage to classic releases by bossa nova artists like João Gilberto (His self-titled 1973 album) or Tom Jobim (Stone Flower). Thievery Corporation has taken progressive political stances on various issues, opposing war and exploitative trade agreements, while supporting human rights and food programs. Tracks such as “Amerimacka” and “Revolution Solution” from their albums The Cosmic Game and Richest Man in Babylon, along with the title tracks from those albums, reveal the group’s opposition to the positions and initiatives of former president George W. Bush‘s administration. We even booked a room with a private hot tub at the Arrowhead Manor B&B! It is going to be an excellent trip to Colorado! Looking forward to a great vacation out of the city!

Papadosio playing at Red Rocks May 7 26 Apr 2016, 3:19 pm

Papadosio playing at Red Rocks May 7



Red Rocks is going to be a fantastic place to see Papadosio! Looking forward to an electrifying show! We are also looking forward to staying at the Arrowhead Manor bed and breakfast.Mesmerizing, spellbinding and genre-defying: With their fourth full-length studio release Extras In A Movie, Papadosio reveals a striking cinematic cornucopia of sounds: orchestral, electronic, organic, acoustic, psychedelic and celestial. The 16 selections that comprise the song cycle are concise and structured – launch pads for the improvisational excursions that are a hallmark of the band’s celebrated concert performances. “The writing process was a challenge for us, to see if we could integrate some songs that were shorter than five minutes,” notes the band. They envisioned the title Extras In A Movie as a concept connected to themes of interpersonal interactions and relationships. Hitting virtually all major and secondary U.S. music locales and select festivals across North America, Papadosio tours on a massive scale but maintains a close intimacy with their fans. With the new project they are expanding their collective stylistic palette. “We like to have a lot of colors,” they explain. “We’re starting to push that envelope in the way we want to go – to give the people who are at the shows more of a variety of emotions. We don’t have filters. We record what’s happening.” Originally from the creative collegiate hotbed of Athens, Ohio, the band is now centered in Asheville, North Carolina. Not that they are homebodies as they clarify. “For the past five or six years we’ve done maybe 150 dates a year and have been gone for 200 days. We were cutting back a little, but now with the new project the number of shows is about to go way back up.” Extras In A Movie balances Papadosio’s celestial sonic ambience with an organic edge and multiple guitars, both electric and acoustic. “A lot more guitar in general,” they say. “ That’s something new with this record.” What also distinguishes the new music is the prominence of their vocals. Extras In A Movie opens with a dense, harmonic introduction titled “The Last Leaf” and across the span of songs emerges subliminal echoes of prog-rock forefathers like Jethro Tull, Yes and Genesis. Trippy titles abound: “Gazing the Great Oscillator,” “Moon Entendre,” Anima Mundi.” Noting that these designations often come late in the creative process, if the band can’t find a suitable name, they might invent a word. “Obove” is such a creation. In the lexicon of Papadosio it is a term that references “an overarching emotion.” While the band gleefully dismisses observations on their collective intellect, an exegesis of their themes indicates complex underpinnings. A new song, “Therian” was inspired by archeological cave paintings depicting creatures that are half-beast and half human. “Bypass Default” is a treatise on being nagged by all of the earth’s problems, and is appropriately discordant. It is the band’s wish that Extras In A Movie will enchant loyal fans and introduce new audiences to the Papadosio universe. “Our intention is to give people music that can be themes in their lives so they can connect to the music. To provide them with a place to hang out so they don’t feel weird in what they are thinking — to give their brains and their hearts a home.” This is going to be awesome!

JJ Grey Playing at Red Rocks Amphitheater 26 Apr 2016, 3:16 pm

JJ Grey Playing at Red Rocks


Going to see JJ Grey at the best amphitheater ever! JJ Grey & Mofro is a Southern rock/soul/funk/blues jam band from Jacksonville, Florida composed of JJ Grey, Andrew Trube, Anthony Farrell, Anthony Cole, Dennis Marion, Jeff Dazey and Todd Smallie. JJ Grey and Mofro’s music has been described as a combination of blues, funk, soul, and rock. All of the songs are written by JJ Grey and reflect the region where he grew up in around Jacksonville, Florida. JJ Grey attributes artists such as Big Bad John and Jim Reeves due to their style of story songwriting and how that style has influenced the way he writes his songs. Grey also credits southern rock acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Jerry Reed as artists who have influenced his style of music, as well as more soulful artists such as Toots Hibbert and Otis Redding. JJ Grey and Mofro are also known for their extensive touring schedule and have continually played at major summer music festivals including Bonnaroo, All Good Festival, Austin City Limits, Wakarusa, and Rothbury. Early on in their touring days, JJ Grey and Mofro gained fame within the jam band scene while touring with acts such as Widespread Panic, Galactic and Ben Harper. JJ Grey attributes most of the band’s strength to their stage performances rather than in the studio. We even decided to stay at a bed and breakfast not to far away, the Arrowhead Manor. Our first time at a B&B.

1975 Playing at Red Rocks Ampitheater 26 Apr 2016, 3:14 pm

1975 playing at Red Rocks May 2nd



My girlfriend and I are way excited to see The 1975 at the famous Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado! It is going to be an awesome show to see there especially! The 1975 are a British alternative rock band formed in Manchester. The group consists of Matthew Healy, Adam Hann, George Daniel, and Ross MacDonald. They have released four EPs, while their self-titled debut album was released on 2 September 2013 through Dirty Hit/Polydor. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK Albums Chart on 8 September 2013. The band has toured internationally. We have never seen them live before and are really looking forward to it! Scott Kerr of AllMusic wrote that the band combined “the dark and youthful themes of sex, love, and fear with ethereal alt-rock music.” Healy specifically cites Talking Heads, My Bloody Valentine, and Michael Jackson as musical influences; he states that his greatest influence is the oeuvre of filmmaker John Hughes. Their “melancholic” black and white visual aesthetic is juxtaposed with major keys and what the band calls “classic pop sensibilities.” Critics at Pitchfork have favourably compared them to The Big Pink. Sex EP was described by Paste as “equal parts ethereal and synth pop,” with “haunting” and “smooth” vocals. Their “mellow,” stripped down style was praised for its lack of “attention-grabbing production theatrics.” The sound of their debut album, The 1975, has been described as electropop, funk rock, indie pop, indie rock, pop, pop rock and rock. Our favorite type of music and our favorite amphitheater to see a great show!  Make a mini vacation out of it and stay at the Arrowhead Manor Inn.  Convenient to Red Rocks but with beautiful mountain views, private hot tubs and more!
