Music Crawl will celebrate local music and local venues
November 10, 2015
Park City is known for its local music scene that features rock, funk, blues,
Americana and country artists.
This is what the KPCW Main Street Music Crawl is all about. The event, which is a
fundraiser for KPCW radio and open to people age 21 and older, will be held on
Saturday, Nov. 14, according to Randy Barton, host of KPCW’s Local View.
"John Wells and Peg Ijams host a Friday show called the Morning Mix that often

hosts live local music on KPCW and I, of course, host, an afternoon show that also does
a lot of live music," Barton said. "We had the idea that we should do something more to
highlight the wonderful local music scene we have."
In that discussion, Barton remembered a music crawl he hosted in Park City years ago
with Mountain Town Stages, which eventually became the nonprofit Mountain Town
"That crawl highlighted local music and local music venues and I wanted to see if we
could do it again," Barton said.
So he called Brian Richards, the director of Mountain Town Music to get permission
to do an updated version of the crawl.
"He gave us the go-ahead and here we are," Barton said.
The crawl, which is presented by Red Ledges and No Name Saloon, will start at O.P.
Rockwell, 268 Main St.
"We’ll be there from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. and we’ll be busy getting everyone decorated
and energized," Barton said.
Six local musicians — Bird in the Trees , Robyn Cage , Bryon Friedman , John Boy’s
Mule and Mary Beth Maziarz — will perform acoustic sets during that time.
"From there, we will split up into groups and head to three other venues — Cisero’s,
The Spur and Flanagan’s on Main," Barton said.
Venue hosts will lead these groups. Christie Dilloway and her group will remain at
O.P. Rockwell. Jude Robinson will take a group to The Spur. Jen Smith will
head to Flanagan’s and Erin Evans will lead a group to Cisero’s.
"Each venue have agreed to hire local bands for the night," Barton said.
Funk & Gonzo will play Cisero’s, Sin City Soul will play at Flanagan’s, the
Motherlode Canyon Band will play at The Spur and after the acoustic musicians finish
their sets, The Detonators will play at O.P. Rockwell.
Furthermore, the venues will be wired in to KPCW, which will broadcast some of the
performances live from 7 p.m. until midnight, according to Barton.
"That way, even folks who can’t make it to town for the crawl or are out driving can
celebrate and be a part of our local music scene. And the group hosts will also
give live updates about the crawl."
Tickets for the music crawl are $39 and can be purchased by visiting http://www.kpcw.org .
The price will include the following:
"After they buy tickets, all they need to do is show up at O.P. Rockwell and give their
names," Barton said. "We’ll then decorate everyone with a wristband and other items that
glow and flash, which is what will get them into the other venues during the crawl."
People will also have the opportunity to join the crawl after 9 p.m. The catch is the
prices and drink vouchers will be different.
"Tickets will cost $20 and while that will get them into all of the venues, they will
only receive one drink voucher," Barton said. "We’ll drop the price later in the night to
$10 with no drink vouchers and then to $5 for the last half-hour."
Also, if anyone wants to get into only one venue and see one band, they can do so for
$5 after 9 p.m., Barton said.
"We want to make this into a yearly tradition," he said. "It will be local. It will be
colorful. It will be wonderful."
