In its first year, Stan Jam is among the continuing events bringing quality music to the famed Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. For decades, the Stanley and its gorgeous ballroom only hosted chamber music ensembles geared toward snoozey, stodgy audiences. But that pinkies-up hoity-toityness went away several years ago when Leftover Salmon hosted the first of many annual celebrations on the Stanley’s grounds. Stan Jam is most certainly an extension of that more relaxed approach to music, which has also fueled several other band-themed weekends. From music workshops to all-out jams in the historic Stanley Concert Hall, the diverse line-up at the 2018 Stan Jam promises to deliver an experience worthy of its spectacular Rocky Mountain setting.
Lineup: The Del McCoury Band, Jeff Austin Band, Chain Station, Rapidgrass, KC & The Side Hustlers, The Lonesome Days, Wood Belly, Modern Whiskey Market
