VAIL - Vail Valley residents and visitors will take a ride on the funky train Tuesday night, as The Pimps of Joytime hit the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater stage in Vail for the second concert of the 2012 Bud Light Hot Summer Nights Series. The group artfully combines afrobeat, salsa, rock & roll, and electronica to create a stage swagger that cannot be found anywhere else. The band will perform songs from its latest album, "Janxta Funk!"Joining the band's lead singer are Chauncey Yearwood on congos and vocals, Mayteana Morales on samples, percussions and vocals, and Clark Dark, who plays bass, moog and guitar. Now in its sixth year of existence, the band is widely known for songs that are infectious, and have you humming along long after the show ends.This year, Hot Summer Nights celebrates its 25th anniversary of bringing free music to Vail.
