Third Eye Blind – Third Eye Blind over the last few years has developed a proud story of a band that clearly feels alive in live performance. The intensity of 3EB’s fans attests to the energy this group creates. 3EB shows are about taking a moment to sing loud and remember you’re alive. And it’s a sight to see from the stage or the audience. The band has been jamming in advance of recording their new album, so this tour will see a band at its most confident in its efforts to discover new ways every night to surprise and transcend.
Imperial Challenge – The 2015 Imperial Challenge…the most unique pseudo-triathlon anywhere returns to Breck this weekend. RUN or RIDE your bike six miles from the Breckenridge Recreation Center to the base of Peak 8 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort. ASCEND on your choice of gear to either the top of the T Bar (Sport Course 2500’) or to the top of Peak 8 (Expert Course 3000’). DESCEND to the base of Peak 8 and the finish!

Eric Paslay – Eric Paslay is a charismatic performer and powerful vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. His singles “Friday Night” and “Song About A Girl” were chart-topping hits and his current single “She Don’t Love You” is steadily climbing while gaining massive critical acclaim. Not only an artist, he’s a sought after songwriter, crafting No. 1 singles for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Love & Theft and Eli Young Band. Paslay’s musical talents are best showcased during his live performances, where he sings his songs, those he’s written and commands the stage with one of the most remarkable voices in country music.
Concerts coming up next weekend…
Saturday, April 18
American Authors – Self-described “laid-back dudes,” American Authors is comprised of Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums). Together they hail from the four corners of the country, each bringing their own influences and experiences to the writing table to create pop-flavored alt rock sprinkled with four-part harmonies, spirited lyrics, and contagious optimism.
Sunday, April 19
The Infamous Stringdusters – The Infamous Stringdusters have proven they can both mine the past and look forward to the unknown, and their new album is a touchstone for a group of tightly bonded musicians completely comfortable with each other and their collective identity. Perhaps the sentiment is best summarized through five joined voices in the mountaintop gospel-hued title track: “If its worry you’ve been feeling over things you can’t control, it’s time to let it go.”
Breckenridge Ski Resort is open until Sunday, April 19 this year, so save your sick days and come play during Spring Fever! Join the Biggest Party in the Rocky Mountains for as low as $129!
