The band has sold more than three million albums and headlined packed venues worldwide, including sold-out shows at Colorado’s historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Combining a mix of musical genres with original songwriting and scorching guitar licks, Big Head Todd’s success is no mystery and continues with the the band’s 11th studio album, “Black Beehive,” set for release in 2014.

Big Head Todd and the Monsters will join co-headliner Matisyahu on stage at Vail Snow Daze for a free live concert on Dec. 14. Rebelution, with opening act MiM0SA, play on Dec. 13.

All Vail Snow Daze concerts are free of charge and will be held at Vail’s Ford Park.
