EAGLE — This Denver-based band found its name when it had audience members write down possible names on a chalkboard at a concert, and Tracksuit Wedding was chosen. The group of veteran musicians comes to Eagle Town Park today for the Bonfire Brewery ShowDown Town Free Concert Series.
“This is a band that knows how to have a good time — they enliven the crowd, and they bring a great attitude to their music,” said Tom Boyd, director of communications for the Vail Valley Foundation. “This is a good one to bring the kids to, but there are going to be tracks in there that everyone can enjoy.”
This vivacious “band on the move,” as described by The Denver Post, defines itself by its mixing of musical styles, said lead vocalist Ali Frankfurt. Tracksuit Wedding has performed at prestigious Colorado venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre and events including the GoPro Mountain Games and Jazz Aspen Snowmass.
While Tracksuit Wedding plays, there will be kids’ activities to entertain the family, picnic space, food vendors and a beer garden from Bonfire Brewing.
“As a group of Denver-based musicians, Tracksuit Wedding is a great group for this concert scene in Eagle,” Boyd said. “It’s a great place to spend a Colorado summer night, with the Bonfire Brewery beer garden, activities for kids and a great outdoor concert to enjoy.”
Next week, the Bonfire Brewery ShowDown Town Eagle Free Concert Series welcomes New Orleans native Dave Jordan (July 28) before improvisational group Sound Travels (Aug. 4) and John “JoJo” Herman of Widespread Panic (Aug. 11) close out the series.
