Does dad like music? The Vilar Performing Arts Center has a whole lineup of acts this summer. Act fast if you want to get a ticket for John Fogerty planning all the tunes dad loves from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, America or Billy Currington. Check out for more info.

If dad is more of a classical music lover, the Bravo! Vail Music Festival kicks off next week and goes through early August. If jazz is more his style, the Vail Jazz Festival will be having headliner performances on Thursdays at Vail Square in Lionshead and free concerts at Solaris Plaza in Vail Village on Sundays.

Umphrey’s McGee will be jamming on Sunday night if you want to take dad out to music on Father’s Day. Listen for sounds of funk, metal, jazz, blues and folk and more starting at 7 p.m. at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail.

SunsetLIVE! is also happening on Father’s Day in case you want to bring dad to hear Jubilingo, a Denver-based quartet that focuses on blues, rock and funk. SunsetLIVE happens on the Terrace at the Avon Performance Pavilion from 6 to 8 p.m.
