DooWop Denny’s 2015 season finale at Silverthorne Pavilion
The Silverthorne Pavilion will host local favorite DooWop Denny and his last rockin’ oldies dance of the season Friday, Sept. 4. Lifelong entertainer, DooWop Denny, promises “music to bring out the rock & roll kid in you” with songs from the ’50s and ’60s, island tunes and slow dancing. Denny encourages folks of all ages to “Wear your dancin’ sneakers!” and feel the foot-stompin’ beat at Silverthorne’s elegant ballroom. As a Motown kid in the 1950s, Denny grew up to the pulse of rockabilly and R&B, and still can’t seem to get it out of his system. For the past 16 years, he has spent summers in Summit County bringing his unique show from home in Sarasota, Florida, to a variety of events in and around Colorado. The Sept. 4 Dance Party is hosted by the town of Silverthorne. Doors and cash bar open at 6 p.m., dancing at 7 p.m. Bring your own snacks/munchies. Tickets are $12 in advance or $14 at the door, available at the Silverthorne Recreation Center or by calling (970) 262-7370. Because the show usually sells out, it is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance. For more information on the DooWop Denny Rockin Oldies Show, visit: http://www.doowopdenny.com

Barkley Ballroom keeps the funk alive with Mama Magnolia
Mama Magnolia will take the stage at The Barkley Ballroom on Saturday, Sept. 5. Fresh off their main stage performance at the Colorado BBQ Challenge in Frisco over the summer, Mama Magnolia has a unique groove led by a big horn section. This six-member group from Denver consists of a two-man (and woman) horn section, a guitar, a bass, a drum set and a vocalist — in some shape or form. But really, it consists of six musicians who love the craft of music. With a love of shifting meters, polyrhythmic structure, evolving harmonies and complex dynamic shape, you could almost call this jazz — and you wouldn’t be too far off. Letting their musical education guide them to create danceable and undeniably deep music that is also candy for the musician’s ear, Mama Magnolia is your guide through a groovy and dangerous musical landscape. Free show. Doors at 9 p.m., music at 9:30. Go to barkleyballroom.com for more information.
Last Sunset at the Summit Concert Series event
Kahuna Beach Party will be playing the last Sunset at the Summit Concert Series Saturday, Sept. 5. Kahuna Beach Party is a musical celebration of the Beach Boys, a lighthearted tribute to the optimistic feeling of the early 1960s. Although so much has changed since then, this fast-paced interactive show lets us relive that feeling with one fun night of music. In the span of an hour, they will take you on a journey through time, starting in the 1980s, stopping in the 1970s, and ending up in the 1960s with music and dancing from the top vocal groups of those decades. The Sunset at the Summit Concert Series provides free, award-winning music for our local residents and guests and continues to be the premier destination summer event for weekends in Summit County. The show starts at 7 p.m. at the Lake Dillon Amphitheater. Go to lakedillontheatre.org/shows-events/sunset-at-the-summit for more information.

The Jauntee play free show at Barkley Ballroom
The Jauntee will play a free show at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco on Thursday, Sept. 10. Averaging more than 100 shows a year, The Jauntee has quickly made a name for themselves in the New England music scene. Drawing influence from a wide variety of bands, The Jauntee’s improvisational landscape spans multiple genres, including: funk/rock/jazz/progressive/bluegrass/psychedelic and ambient music. Their willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from your average upcoming jam band. They aim to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. With an ever-expanding song catalog and an inclination for open ended improvisation, every show promises to be a unique experience. Go to barkleyballroom.com for more information.
