Park City Mountain kicks off Canyons Village concerts
Events held on Saturdays
Summer concerts are returning to Canyons Village at Park City Mountain this June.
Beginning Saturday, June 24, Park City Mountain will present a free summer concert series in partnership with the Canyons Village Management Association on select Saturdays through Sept. 2.
New this year, the free concerts will move to the Canyons Village Stage located in the village forum.
The summer concert lineup features a mix of performers from a variety of genres including folk-rock duo Jamestown Revival and up-and-coming Provo band VanLadyLove.
Opening acts begin at 4 p.m. followed by the headlining band at 6 p.m.
The Cabriolet will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. on concert days and guests are welcome to bring their own blankets, low-back chairs and picnics to enjoy the music and gorgeous mountain views.
The Umbrella Bar will also serve food and beverages on concert evenings. A full lineup of summer concert dates and performers is listed below.
Jamestown Revival is a group formed by Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance. After growing tired of a life-mining tiger’s eye in the foothills of the Texas hill country, they hit the road to conceive a style that could be described as back-porch- folk rock.
Tony Holiday and The Velvetones mix their many influences into a musical gumbo of Dirty Rock and Down Home Blues. With Holiday on harmonica and guitar, Adam Fifield on the Hammond organ and Dave Idan on drums, it’s a compact trio that packs a big punch and will keep the place dancing till the sun comes up.
New Orleans Suspects (see accompanying story titled ‘ New Orleans Suspects will bring a gumbo of a show to Deer Valley’)
John Németh had already established himself among the very top ranks of blues musicians and modern soul singers when he decided to break the mold with his new record, “Feelin’ Freaky.” Drawing from his strong influences in blues and rhythm and blues, as well as contemporary sounds in hip hop and rock ‘n’ roll, Nemeth creates music that is personal as well as universal. He creates his songs from melodies and phrases he draws from the sounds of life, from early-morning Memphis songbirds to the din of the city.
VanLadyLove hails from Provo — home of bands such as Neon Trees, Imagine Dragons, Joshua James, The Used, and others. Inspired by this hot bed of talent, the band has never had small goals and has grown a national and international fan base using a mixture of YouTube videos, social media and touring. The band prides itself on sincere songwriting and a captivating live performance. Recently VanLadyLove won the No. 1 Artist on the Verge 2014 award, a national honor given by a team of top artists and relations scouts, talent buyers, booking agents, media taste-makers and other industry experts at the New Music Seminar in New York City.
Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors is a four-piece band from Memphis and East Nashville offering fans a distinct blend of Americana, rock and country. A road warrior for more than a decade, Drew Holcomb spent his adulthood on-stage and on the road, traveling from place to place with a catalog of vibrant, honest songs that explore the full range of American roots music. He turns a new corner with 2017’s Souvenir, a highly collaborative album that finds Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors focusing on the things that truly stick with you – including family and friends, music and memories, people and places – in a fast-moving world.
Triggers & Slips is a four-piece band based out of Salt Lake City. They implement a healthy dose of honky-tonk, sprinkled with rock, folk, bluegrass, and even elements of psychedelia. Their original songs are backed with three-part harmonies, acoustic and electric guitar, lap steel, harmonica, drums and bass.
K. Phillips’ first release, “American Girls,” garnered accolades from the likes of No Depression, Buffalo News and Daytrotter for its blend of the literate and the lowdown. Many of these publications spotlighted a mythical essence about Phillips, remarking about his mainstay Stetson hat, his chiseled Hank Williams-esque good looks, and a character quality that’s both vulnerable and reckless. His latest album, “Dirty Wonder”,” released on Rock Ridge Music on March 10, is a breakup record that’s part autobiographical, part imagined and part observational, chronicling a third-party breakup Phillips witnessed firsthand. The impactfully concise songs on “Dirty Wonder” are complimented by teardrop pedal steel guitar, rollicking blues piano, fuzzed out guitars, and gospel girl group vocals.
Corey Harper’s blend of acoustic folk and Americana, country and blues pays homage and builds upon the storied singer-songwriters of past and present. As a guitar player and songwriter, Harper crafted his sound from growing up around ‘60s and ‘70s rock and soul music, as well as drawing inspiration from newer artists such as John Mayer and Ben Howard. Harper’s debut EP “On The Run” ambitiously showcases his lyricism, and melodic guitar playing that has caught the attention of many.
In addition to the summer concert series at Canyons Village, Park City Mountain will also host local live music acts every Saturday afternoon at the PayDay Pad at the Park City Base Area and on the Canyons Village Stage.
Saturday afternoon live music will feature local and regional favorites including The Patwa Reggae Band, The Bookends and Bonanza Town.
