The Colorado-based cover band, Nevermind The '90s, returns to The Snake River Saloon in Keystone tonight and Saturday. The group has been together for nearly three years, and covers songs from Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Blur, Sublime, Weezer, Everclear and Cake, among others. Here Jake Goldman (guitar, vocals) gives us a few more details:
"Nevermind" is the title of the Nirvana album that changed music in the '90s, and so the phrase "Nevermind The '90s" was our idea of a nod to the apathetic culture that '90s bands were known for.
Our sound is diverse. We can be a ballad band and a heavy rock band all in the same night. Expect to hear pop songs, dance songs and even some grunge music from the '90s.
There are so many. The '90s was such a great time for music. I especially enjoy playing anything by Sublime or Third Eye Blind.
One year, we were booked to play a show in Cheyenne, Wyo. as part of the town's Christmas tree lighting ceremony. They wanted us to play in front of the tree during one of the coldest nights in December. It wound up being so cold that some of our equipment started to freeze, as well as the audience and ourselves. The show was canceled after we played just one song. We were still paid in full, so that show ended up being the most I've ever been paid per song in a night.
High energy, high danceability and a lot of singing along. The Snake River Saloon is always a great time.
