The Big Wonderful is hosting a weekly series of bluegrass shows “Oktobergrass” in October at the outdoor beer garden at Belleview Station in the DTC area. Join me for the last of the series for the early set for the bluegrass band The Sweet Lillies. Purchase your ticket for the 2-4 pm show through event brite. Two ticket options are being offered @ $12+ fee for the show and cash bar or $35 + fee for the show incl open bar (beer, wine and cocktails). At least one food truck will be available but outside food also permitted. We’ll meet @ 1 in the smaller dog park/bar area and will be admitted to the seating area @ 1:30. There are limited existing seating areas so BYO lawn chairs and blankets is suggested. This event is capped at 8 ppl but they have group “pods” capped at 5 so we’ll just need to space out. Please ONLY RSVP after you have purchased your ticket so you are highly committed to attend. Please Uber/lyft or you must be responsible if driving. This is in an off Ieash dog park and dog friendly so you should be dog friendly and not too sensitive to dog allergies. I will be bringing my dog. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/oktobergrass-live-music-series-the-sweet-lillies-tickets-119512614447?ref=eios About the band The Sweet Lillies’ high-energy, melodic tunes have quickly captured the hearts of fans in Colorado and beyond. The band credits its appeal to the original and compelling songwriting of three people who share an unwavering commitment to life on the road. The magnetic combination of Julie Gussaroff on the upright bass, Becca Bisque on the viola, and Dustin Rohleder on guitar gives the band a rare and alluring sound. As a testament to their appeal, The Sweet Lillies have shared the stage with the likes of Peter Rowan, George Porter Jr., Steve Kimock, Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, Kyle Hollingsworth and Jason Hann of The String Cheese Incident, Andy Hall of The Infamous String Dusters, Jeff Austin, and Bridget Law (founding member of Elephant Revival).
