We want to give a great thanks to all of you who came from all over to share our Neighborhood Party and Car Show! Without all the excitement and friendliness of all who were there and those who donated their time, efforts and made it possible to have all the food be free of charge, we could not have had the amazing time we had except that so many brought their incredible cars too. Everyone put so much into it, both guests and hosts to make this not only a great time with a wonderful musical concert and dance, but also as one person said, "I have been to car shows, built cars, and taken them all over the USA to show, and I have to tell you, this is the best venue and show I have ever been to!"
Our filled up amphitheater with your incredible energy, inspired every person on stage to dance, sing, and play with an "extra something" that we all got to enjoy so much.
Thank you all for making our dream to have a Neighborhood Party in the Country, not only come to life, but to be a huge success.
All of us from Aspen Meadow Band
Once again the Aspen Meadow Band is pleased and honored to be able to share the music of John Denver in Aspen, Colorado. We are also very excited to showcase these musicians who will be joining us this year.
- Gary Lapado: We are proud to have a musician of this calibre on stage with us in Aspen. Gary has around 40 years of experience of live performance, having toured with Johnny Lee as his lead guitar player and opened for acts like Keith Urban, The Charlie Daniels Band, and Taj Mahal. Along with the guitar, Gary will express his music with the mandolin and fiddle to the delight of all who hear.
- Derek Boone: One of the finest drummers we know, Derek brings one simple yet very profound thing to the stage and that is to share his story through percussion and song. Derek gives his all when he plays, having had the privilege of performing on the drums now for over 30 years. He has played in 5 different countries in that span of time, performing for our men and women in uniform as well as casinos from Las Vegas, Nevada to Toronto, Canada.
- Matthew Senn: OK, so Matt isn’t new to the Aspen Meadow Band but he brings a wealth of experience and skill as he is fresh out of producing a major concert in Oregon and is currently studying Music Therapy at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Matt’s stage presence, love of music, and expression with his guitar will bring a smile to all who hear him play.
- Thomas Hamilton: The pure tones of Tom’s flute will once again bring John’s music to life. Tom has a Master’s Degree in Instrumental Music Performance from Oklahoma City University and this past August co-produced with Matt Senn a concert that still has them talking and wanting more!
We look so forward to seeing and playing for you again in this beautiful part of the country that John Denver loved so much, and hope that our music will help you touch feelings deep within yourselves, the ones that you call “home”.
