Jukebox Hero spits out favorites

KIMBERLY NICOLETTIsummit daily news

Who: Jukebox Hero When: Tonight at Motherloaded Tavern, Breckenridge and Sunday at Snake River Saloon, Keystone Where’d the name come from? The band name is more of a definition of the band; we play almost everything, similar to what you would hear from a Jukebox. Home base: Copper MountainWho are you? Jukebox Hero started playing in the winter of 2008 to the aprs ski crowd at Copper Mountain, mixing classic hits from artists like Bob Marley, Hall and Oats, the Eagles, Van Morrison, Steve Miller and The Band with current favorites from artists like Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Collie Budz, Old Crow and many others. Jukebox Hero plays most genres of music from rap to country and loves taking requests from the audience. If your music were a tangible item, what would it be, and why? Jukebox Hero would be a can of mixed nuts, because there is a lot of variety, something for everyone, and we are salty so you can’t stop eating (or listening)! Why do people love ya? Because we play what they want to hear, and we do it with energy and fun! How do you keep it fresh? We are constantly adding songs to our catalog from good requests we get from audiences. Occasionally we bring a special guest up to play or sing a song with us; the crowd loves the variety and so do we! What’s the craziest thing you’ve done/weirdest experience? We just played a party in Boulder for the Hash House Harriers drinking/running club on Memorial Day weekend. Let’s just say they know how to drink, and they have some really funny drinking songs, and what’s more fun than playing to a crowd of 100 men and women all wearing red dresses singing along to “Billy Jean” … great stuff.
