Next Page bookstore hosts signing and Harry Potter event

On Friday, July 29, Ed Sealover will be at The Next Page Books & Nosh in Frisco for a book signing and talk starting at 5 p.m. for his new book “Colorado Excursions with History, Hikes and Hops.” Colorado is replete with natural beauty, award-winning breweries and a history that reflects its wild and rugged character. Author Sealover offers this detailed guide to 10 three-day excursions full of nature, history and unique watering holes. Discover sprawling parks and celebrated landmarks throughout the state. Visit oddball destinations like the trail of America’s favorite cannibal and the renowned ghost town of Saint Elmo. Work up a thirst on the hiking trails of Rocky Mountain National Park and unwind on the single block in the state that is home to a brewery, a winery and a distillery. Uncover the craft, creative and cultural gems that make the Centennial State a curious wanderer’s dream.

Sealover is a reporter with the Denver Business Journal covering state government, tourism and the beverage industry. He worked at the Colorado Springs Gazette from 2000-08, covering city hall and politics and writing the paper’s beer column.

The Next Page encourages Harry Potter fans of all ages to come in costume, and there will be refreshments and games.

Duey and The Decibels feat. members of Yamn, Analog Son and Fox Street headline a free show at the Dillon Dam Brewery

Duey and The Decibels is a musical endeavor created by former Summit County resident and Yamn bassist and vocalist, David Edward Duart. Duey will be bringing a five-piece band — featuring members of Fox Street, Analog Son, The RunniKine, Springdale Quartet and King Cardinale — to the Dillon Dam Brewery for a performance on Thursday, July 28. The band will play a diverse set of music from rock, soul and funk covers to original music that crosses deep grooves with heartfelt lyrics. This is a free show and also Dillon Dam Brewery’s weekly ladies night, ladies can drink free half pints of beer from 9–11 p.m.

Duey’s musical focus is on creative song writing and thick grooves. With an appreciation for every style of music known to the world his live shows can cover ample genres. What stands out in the live performance is his love for Americana, hard rock and funk. The band members consist of a revolving cast that can change with each performance. The musicians are chosen mainly from a large pool of players in the Front Range of Colorado.

Duey has been touring nationally with his full time band, Yamn, a progressive electro rock outfit, from Denver for nine-plus years. He is the brainchild and bass player for, Rally ‘Round the Family, a Rage Against the Machine cover band based out of Denver. He is also often hired by many musicians throughout Colorado to perform at various gigs across the state.
