The Top Spring Jams from our Spring Fever Bands

Flobots Spring Fever Concert at Breckenridge Ski Resort

There are few feelings as uplifting as the beginning of Spring. The sun shines brighter, the snow continues to fall, and the music of chirping birds can be heard for miles around. Fortunately, for the next two weekends, Breck will be giving the birds a breather and letting some professionals crank out the tunes. And the best part? All this great music is free!

The Bud Light Concert Series features free concerts with some of the hottest acts in the country in a gorgeous outdoor atmosphere at the base of Peak 8. On Saturday, April 6, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones will ring in the season with their eclectic ska rhythms and catchy horn section. Sunday, April 7, brings the reggae-infused stylings of The Dirty Heads. The following weekend, Breck hosts local favorites 3OH!3 on Saturday, April 13, as well as a much-anticipated performance by reggae and hip hop sensation Matisyahu on closing day, Sunday, April 14. All concerts will be held on an outdoor stage from 2-5pm in the Peak 8 base area.

In anticipation of this epic concert series, I decided to find some of my favorite tracks from these artists that best reflect the spirit of Spring Fever.

1) The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Impression that I Get

With a toe-tapping, upbeat rhythm, rapid-fire lyrics and a sweet horn solo, it’s no surprise that “Impression that I Get” became one of the Bosstones’ signature tracks. This familiar track evokes the fun-loving feelings of Spring and brings a smile to audiences no matter the season.

2) The Dirty Heads – Spread Too Thin

With so many events to chose from during Spring Fever, it could seem like you’re spreading yourself a bit too thin trying to avoid missing out on any of the festivities! Fear not, the Spring Fever website details all the concerts, competitions, and parties so you can pack the most into your Spring Fever celebration.

3) 3OH!3 – You’re Gonna Love This

You’re gonna love this jam from Colorado natives 3OH!3 just like you’re gonna love getting down with some of the greatest music, food and atmosphere when you’re partying on top of the world at 10,000 feet above sea level!

4) Matisyahu – Sunshine

Don’t forget your shades and SPF50! Breck basks in sunshine year-round, but during Spring Fever you’ll definitely want to come out to experience the warmth and light that many of us have been missing out on all winter long.

5) Dirty Heads (feat. Matisyahu) – Dance All Night

Question: What’s better than the Dirty Heads or Matisyahu?
Answer: How about the Dirty Heads AND Matisyahu, together on the same track! While the concerts will all end at 5pm, you are absolutely encouraged to dance all night.
