The Shakedown Bar, in Vail Colorado, has become one of the most beloved, intimate music venues in Colorado, and around the world since it’s inception in 2012. One of the best things about Shakedown Bar is that you never know who you may find on the stage rocking with any of our talented family members. The side men make your favorite bands and we host them nightly to share with you the amazing musical opportunities that pop up just through any easy hang! Members of Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews Band, Ween, Billy Joel, CSN, Dirty Dozen, Greensky Bluegrass, Trey Anastasio Band, Widespread Panic, Ratdog, Dead and Company, Allman Brothers Band, and so many more have graced our stage and shared in the jam with all of us, and you!
From the band: We are here to celebrate life and share our family jam with you. Scott Rednor will host the Shakedown Family Band Jam with our friends from Brothers Keeper, JJ Grey and Mofro, Andy Frasco and the UN, Derek Trucks Band, and many other of your local favorite players. We will time travel through The Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, CCR, Prince, Van Morrison, Grateful Dead, and more, and also some new original music that memorializes our quarantine time! We can’t wait to see you all and share with you all of our special guests and groovy tunes to make a memorable evening for our community!
