Too Slim and The Taildraggers
The town of Dillon will welcome critically acclaimed Too Slim and the Taildraggers to the Dillon Amphitheatre on Friday as part of the Friday Night Concert Series. Too Slim and the Taildraggers is an American blues-rock band formed in 1986 and hailing from Spokane, Wash. The band currently consists of Tim “Too Slim” Langford (lead vocals, guitar), Polly O’Keary (bass, vocals) and Tommy Cook (drums).
Too Slim and the Taildraggers are a hit around the world with their impressive delivery of blues and rock music. If you’re into Stevie Ray Vaughn, then you’ll dig the sounds of this Pacific Northwest favorite.
Colorado’s own Moses Jones will play at the Dillon Amphitheatre on Saturday as part of the Sunset at the Summit concert series. The Moses Jones band is a 12-piece dance band with a high-energy, talented stage show. The band features a full four-piece horn section, five-piece rhythm section and three vocalists, who provide a wide range of musical entertainment delivered as only the Moses Jones band can.
Following the performance will be a fireworks memorial to celebrate the life of Connie Gruber, presented by her husband, Jerry.
Dillon Amphitheatre concerts feature food and beverage concessions and are free to the public. Outside alcohol and pets are not allowed.
