Cooler In The Mountains Concert Series, featuring New Rhythm & Blues Quartet

Sat Jul 16 2016

This star-studded free concert series returns in summer 2016 with an expanded eight-week series.

Top names from the national music scene will be taking the stage for eight FREE outdoor shows as the "Cooler in the Mountains" summer concert series returns. So grab a lawn chair, a beach blanket, the whole family and head to the Snowshed Base Area for this family-friendly event produced by the Killington Pico Area Association and presented by Long Trail Brewing Company and Farrell Distributing.

This week's band is NRBQ or the ‘New Rhythm and Blues Quartet’ is that rare group that's eclectic, stylistically innovative, and creatively ambitious while also sounding thoroughly unpretentious and accessible. At its best, NRBQ's music casually mixes up barrelhouse R&B, British Invasion pop, fourth-gear rockabilly, exploratory free jazz, and dozens of other flavors while giving it all a stomp-down rhythm that makes fans want to dance and express a sense of joy and easy good humor that comes straight from the heart.


Concerts are held from 3:30-6:00 p.m. and guests are encouraged to come early to enjoy the festive atmosphere and all the summer activities Killington Resort has to offer.
