Warren Station at Keystone Hosts Trout Steak Revival with openers Pandas and People on New Year’s Eve
Warren Station at Keystone is in hot pursuit of an epic New Year’s Eve and is proud to host the future of acoustic music. Trout Steak Revival, Colorado’s next great bluegrass band, according to the Denver Westword, fuels the Warren Station ballroom with their cutting edge strings and enchanting stage presence. With opener Pandas and People in the mix, the mountains have never sounded so good on New Year’s Eve! And how about a few perma-grins topped with exultant whooping? We’ve got that too. Keystone has reported feet upon feet of fresh snow over the last several weeks! Pair the best bluegrass music with epic ski/ride days, and you’ve got the New Year’s recipe for greatness. The life in the village is as plentiful as the powder with fine dining specials and fireworks to round out the celebration at Keystone. Warren Station concert guests are welcome to free party favors while supplies last followed by a blast of confetti at midnight. Welcome 2017 on Saturday, December 31st at Warren Station right in the heart of the action at Keystone Resort.
Soulful Narratives. Heartfelt Songwriting. Tightly-woven Instrumentation. Harmonies Rooted in Years of Friendship. Blending the foregoing, Trout Steak Revival pushes the envelope on a progressing genre while drawing creatively from the many canons of American roots music. Trout Steak Revival has earned a place in the mountain states bluegrass scene, performing to sold-out audiences, winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, placing in the 2012 Rockygrass Band Competition, and even winning an Emmy Award for a soundtrack with Rocky Mountain PBS. Their new album, “Brighter Every Day,” was released in March 2015. Produced by Chris Pandolfi of the Infamous Stringdusters, the album has radio play and acclaim both in Colorado and across the world.
Pandas & People is a folk band rooted in Colorado. Fronted by lead vocalist and bassist Joshua Scheer and guitarist Johnny Day, Pandas & People began as a side project in a basement in Colorado in 2013. Feedback from family and friends shoved Pandas & People from the back burner toward the center stage, and, after recording their first single “On My Way” in November 2013, the band was chosen as a top ten contender for a local competition put on by channel 93.3 KTCL. After being in the main radio rotation for almost two weeks, the song’s sales increased exponentially and listeners voted the song into the Top 3 in the statewide competition, ultimately inspiring the band to record and release their self-titled debut EP in early 2014.
Since then, Pandas & People have been voted “Best New Artist” by The Colorado Sound and were nominated as “Best Folk Band in Colorado” by Westword Magazine. Playing all across Colorado, the band has opened up for major acts such as The Doobie Brothers, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Twenty-One Pilots and most recently were chosen to open up the Big Gig 2015 at Fiddler’s Green in front of thousands of people.
The live band is accompanied by Grayson Erhard on Mandolin, Adam Haag and Timothy Sweet on Percussion and Conrad Marshall on Guitar during live performances, Pandas & People offers a traditional folk sound with an underlying hint of alternative rock, creating an innovative fusion of sound that sticks with you from the moment you hit play.
New Year’s Eve Doors open at 8:30pm with Pandas and People starting at 9:00pm.
