Canyons presents the 7th annual Spring Grüv. For 10 days we'll be having huge, free concerts in the Resort Village, as well as the famous Pond Skimming Contest!
Due to health related issues with one of the band members, Steel Pulse has had to cancel today’s free concert at Canyons Resort for the 7th Annual Spring Gruv. Based on this development, our afternoon music schedule has been revised… our opening act will now be Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real at 3:30 pm, followed by Cody ChesnuTT at approximately 5:00 pm on the Resort Village stage.
Celebrate. Compete. Watch. Ski. Ride. Grüv. Thanks to Mountain Town Music for the concert production.
About Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
Lukas Nelson and his band P.O.T.R. (Promise of the Real) are an American rock n roll group based out of California. Lukas first picked up the guitar at age 11 to honor a promise he made to his father and was able to teach himself the craft by playing along to classic Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix songs. Now at age 24, Lukas is building his following the old fashioned way by touring year round and delivering high energy performances to fans across th
About Cody ChesnuTT:
Universally hailed as a thrilling new figure in music for his edgy, lo-fi debut, The Headphone Masterpiece, back in 2002, Cody ChesnuTT is a soul troubadour whose frank, socially conscious ruminations on life continue to challenge popular notions of what modern soul music can look and sound like: a raw storyteller for the people wearing a guitar and a toothpick-chewing smirk; a wide-eyed, intense soul brother in a crazy-fly get-up singing about bedraggled love in the land of Los Angeles - he’s all of that, but wiser now while still wearing poetic license on his skin like a battle scar. The Atlanta native has always stood his own creative ground ever since he first holed himself up in his bedroom to record The Headphone Masterpiece, armed with his DIY musical arsenal: a drum machine, an array of instruments, a dusty four-track cassette recorder and a giant pair of headphones to block out the world. The result was an unvarnished collection of songs – 36 in total, which alchemized his love of a multitude of styles: classic rock, rhythm and blues, pop, punk and gospel music.
Landing On A Hundred, Cody’s second full-length LP, marks his return to the music game after a period of family-man retreat and reflection that did a world of good for him after his meteoric rise to near fame. The title is a reference to the slang saying, “Keeping It One Hundred,” or telling the whole truth, and for lovers of true blue Southern soul this new album is a must-have — he recorded it with a ten-piece band in Memphis-based Royal Studios, the sonic birthplace of some of the deepest works by soul and blues luminaries like Al Green, Buddy Guy and Ike & Tina Turner. “The original tracks were cut on two-inch tape,” Cody explains. “My hands were tingling because I got to sing on the actual microphone that Al Green recorded with. Nothing has changed. The downhome acoustic treatments are still in place.” Truthfulness emanates from Cody’s vocal chords and the strings of his guitar while his strong, sensitive voice continues to command listeners with its riveting sound, leading them to their own higher ground.
All concerts are free and begin at 3:00pm.
NOTE: No outside alcohol is allowed in for our spring concerts. We will have food and beverage options available in the Resort Village, so don't worry! And, please carpool.
