Jackson Hole Summer Concerts
If you’re a local, Jackson Hole Summer Concerts (aka Jackson Hole Live) become a habit, and a place to meet your friends on a regular basis. If you’re a visitor – it’s just one more thing to add to the plethora of ‘gotta-do’ activities during your stay. Visitors and locals alike mingle at Jackson Hole Summer Concerts, and it’s a great vibe. The concerts are held at the Snow King Resort Ball Park, 100 E. Snow King Avenue, every Thursday evening from (with some exceptions) throughout July and August.
And, boy, do we have some high-caliber acts – on Sunday, August 31st. no other than Lynrd Skynyrd is showing up to strut their stuff at the next of the Jackson Hole Concerts. I imagine people from all over Wyoming and neighboring states will travel to Jackson Hole for that one. They are coming to help us celebrate Jackson Hole’s Centennial year – 2014. (More about the Jackson Hole Centennial in my next post.) Some other bands to grace Jackson Hole with their presence this season have been: Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue; Craig Campbell and the Black Lillies, Johnny Swim and Playing for Change.
Meanwhile, there are more Jackson Hole Concerts held at Teton Village Commons – Concerts on the Commons. This summer Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has hosted Calle Mambo, Jazz Foundation of Jackson Hole, Mandatory Air, Reckless Kelly, The Congress and others.
Not quite a Jackson Hole Concert, but just over Teton Pass in Victor, Idaho, there’s Music on Main – yes – more free concerts every Thursday night – 7 in total during July and August – it can be hard to choose which of these free concerts to attend. Music on Main (made possible by the Teton Valley Foundation) this summer has hosted:
Young Dubliners, Maddy & the Groove Spots, The Motet, and Hayes Carll.
The quality of the music is high. The bands are tight, professional, superb entertainers and at the top of their games. The musicians play hard and are obviously well-rehearsed and perfectionists at their instruments. Sometimes it looks as if such repeated motions must hurt as a result of overuse injuries. We, at Massage Professionals of Jackson Hole, offer musicians’ massage to visiting performers.
We thank all sponsors of Jackson Hole Summer Concerts for putting on these great shows.
