Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Shakin’ at the Basin May Concert Series kicks off on Saturday, May 3, at Arapahoe Basin with Euforquestra. Originally from Iowa City, Iowa, Euforquestra relocated to Fort Collins in August 2008 and has made a splash on the Colorado music scene with its progressive, genre-crossing funk fusions and a relentless tour schedule. Euforquestra is quickly spreading its self-proclaimed “Afro-Caribbean-barnyard Funk,” a unique, rhythmic blend of sound, integrating such genres as Afrobeat, reggae, Afro-Cuban, samba, soca, funk, salsa and dub. As percussionist and lead vocalist Matt Grundstad puts it, "we just want to make people dance.” The free, family-friendly music runs form 1 to 4 p.m. in the base area. There also will be a taco bar fiesta to celebrate “Tres de Mayo.” Visit www.arapahoebasin.com for more information.
