-Live music fills the mountains during Steamboat’s 50th Anniversary Season as the Bud Light Rocks the Boat Free Concert Series kicks off the 2012/2013 winter featuring free concerts from the hottest bands around right from Opening weekend through Closing Day.
“This is an amazing line-up of talented artists as we head into our 50th season and the 14th year of free music in Steamboat,” said Rob Perlman, senior vice president of sales & marketing for Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “There isn’t a better way to enjoy an incredible outing in the mountains than by combining Champagne Powder® snow with plenty of sunshine and a free concert by some of the hottest bands around. It’s even more fun when it’s your 50th too!”
Steamboat gives you a dozen reasons to be in Ski Town, U.S.A.® for opening weekend as the Dirty Dozen Brass Band kicks off the resort’s 50th Anniversary Season in their typical New Orleans groovin’ big brass band style. Celebrating their own 35th anniversary, the award-winning Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world famous music machine, whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances. A big anniversary requires big style and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band definitely delivers just that.
Steamboat heads into the New Year and its 50th Anniversary Celebration in January with a smoking show from Robert Randolph and the Family Band that delivers their trademarked American funk and soul grooves led by pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph. Southern Rock and healthy dose of outlaw honky tonk mixed in with a little bit of bluegrass is Blackberry Smoke, performing after the annual Cowboy Downhill. February marches in with traditional Mardi Gras style when New Orleans resident Anders Osborne blows the roof of the Steamboat stage with his guitar fireworks and well-traveled voice.
During March and April, the Dunwells, MarchFourth Marching Band and Leftover Salmon close out the Bud Light Rocks the Boat Concert Series with their high-energy on-stage performances that cross musical genres and styles in the heart of Gondola Square. The following outlines the current concert schedule:
Nov. 24 – Dirty Dozen Brass Band

Jan. 21 – Blackberry Smoke
Feb. 9 – Anders Osborne
