VAIL — Nicholas “Pumpkin” Alvarado will perform in Vail Friday night. This will be his third time to the valley in the past two years, each time drawing a larger crowd. He performs at Bol in Vail. Pumpkin’s spot-on song selections, special remixes and original productions have made for live sets that seamlessly span every genre and eschew the latest trends in favor of timeless melodies that will leave a smile on your face.

Vail’s newest entertainment company, Baby Rhino Entertainment, led by local promoter Ross Cohen, organized the event.

“Pumpkin always puts on a good show with his positive attitude and great music,” Cohen said.

Whether starting the party or closing it down, Pumpkin’s inspired mixes are always lovingly sequenced and aim to set the perfect mood. He’s played alongside fellow acclaimed house music mainstays like Lee Burridge, Justin Martin, Nick Warren and KCRW’s Jeremy Sole as well as progressive electronic music pioneers like Bluetech, Blockhead, EOTO and The Glitch Mob. Pumpkin has performed at major music festivals like Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle and Sea of Dreams, where he closed the event after his musical hero, Trentemoller. Pumpkin’s acclaimed debut EP, “Love Letters,” featured collaborations with singer Katie Mowgli of the breakout band, The Mowglis and lyricist, Everyman along with his sought after remixes from the likes of Florence + The Machine and Lila Rose.

He’s been part of the esteemed Pocket Underground family since 2006, when after playing in rock bands all his life, he found a new passion in the hypnotic rhythms of deep house music.

Kirby K will open the show. Kirby K has been attracting crowds in Denver, Vail, and is a seasoned Burning Man artist.
