Strolling Scones bring ’60s to Eagle
Eagle, CO Colorado
EAGLE, Colorado – Frozen in 1969, defrosted in 2004, and caught somewhere between “Sleeper” and “Austin Powers”, the retro ’60s rock band The Strolling Scones will descend upon Eagle Town Park Thursday.
Presented by the town of Eagle, the concert is part of American National Bank ShowDown series. All shows start at 6:30 p.m., with kids activities included.
The Strolling Scones’ musical path began on New Years Eve of 2004/2005. What was supposed to be a one-time gig evolved into a long and winding road of concerts and two albums. The Scones feature vocal harmony, flashy guitar work, melodic songs and a stage show that has been described as “Jefferson Airplane meets Spinal Tap.”
Additional free shows in July will include the funky vibes of Hustle on July 9; the funk, rock, blues and reggae sounds of the Matt Clark Band on July 16; the reggae styles, down-tempo and dub of Bonfire Dub on July 23; and the acoustic style bluegrass of Grass It Up to round out the series on July 30.
Snow usually comes and goes in this part of the state. A forecasted storm is expected to stick around for a while. Forecasters are calling for snow to persist throughout the weekend in the high country, with a prospect of a couple of feet of powder by the time the storm starts to diminish on Monday.
