The Congress shakes at A-Basin

The Shakin’ at the Basin May Concert Series continues Saturday, May 10, with The Congress. Evoking emotions that you thought had long passed — the feeling of your first powder run or the way you feel listening to a worn vinyl as it warmly crackles against the sound of a summer night — The Congress is naturally compared to many names and styles of years gone by. But drawing such comparisons is, in many respects, a misguided endeavor. The Congress are a natural evolution of more than 60 years of purely American music. With a spirit rooted just south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and now calling Denver their home, they’ve got enough soul and grit and have spent enough time in the woodshed and on the road to call them pretty much whatever you want. The free, family-friendly concert runs from 1 to 4 p.m. in the base area. Visit for more information.

Local DJ at the Snake in Keystone

DJ Cyn will play your favorite top-40 and rock hits at the Snake River Saloon in Keystone on Friday, May 9. Cynthia (DJ Cyn) is a freestyle DJ, meaning she plays to the vibe of the crowd. Music has always been her passion so it was natural for her to pursue it. She started off in Breckenridge part time and after only her first year, she fell in love with entertaining crowds and knew it was her calling. Cynthia then started expanding her musical interest as an MC, host and singer at events, soon after working in production with other MC’s and bands and recording and creating her own music. Doors open at 4 p.m., and the music starts at 9:30. Call (970) 468-2788 for more information.
