I will be the first to admit that things always seem a little bit better when they are free. When it comes without a price tag, food tastes better, swag seems cooler and music always sounds better. With this simple notion in mind, the Breckenridge Ski Resort has created the ultimate month-long celebration featuring a ton of free music.

The Bud Light Concert Series will take over the base of Peak 8 for the last few weekends of the season with Julian Marley and The Uprising kicking things off on March 24th from 2 to 5 p.m.. Following the path laid out by his famous musical family, Julian Marley is the perfect performer to get things going for Spring Fever with his own blend of head-bobbing, roots reggae.  Rumor has it Julian doesn’t shy away from playing some of his Dad’s classic songs as well, which is sure to go over very well with the Breck crowd.

Following Julian Marley’s Saturday performance, New Orleans’ own Soul Rebels Brass Band will headline on Sunday. Redefining what a brass band is and does has been the Soul Rebels’ modus operandi for some 20 years and come rain or shine they will take the stage at the base of Peak 8 to rock the crowd.

Colorado’s own Leftover Salmon will headline on Saturday, March 31 with their distinctive Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass sound, a genre they pretty much created themselves. Jam band enthusiast will love Leftover Salmon’s relaxed stage presence and fluid progression through songs.

If there was ever an artist that would feel right at home in Breckenridge, I would think Donavon Frankenreiter would be that guy. His laid-back, California style seems like it would fit right in with the unpretentious Breckenridge vibe and he will The greatest draw in the free casino games was double 100/200 metre world champions Usain Bolt where should he be around the eve from the Olympic free casino games – marketing sponsor Gatorade via his Twitter account. usher in the month of April with a performance on Sunday, April 1st.

As if they knew concert-goers would need at least one weekend off to recover and get ready for the “official” closing weekend, the last two Spring Fever concerts are scheduled for the weekend of April 14th.

Being a huge reggae fan, I was so excited when Breckenridge Ski Resort announced that

Rusted Root will play Spring Fever on April 15th

Toots and The Maytals would be performing on Saturday, April 14th. Formed in the early 1960’s, Toots and The Maytals still know how to rock with the best of them, seamlessly blending harmonizing vocals with classic reggae beats. Never heard of Toots and The Maytals? Well, go listen to “Funky Kingston” and you will immediately become a fan.

The big headliner set to close out the weekend is fusion rock band Rusted Root playing on Sunday afternoon. Even though I have probably heard their song “Send Me On My Way” hundreds of times, but I never get sick of singing along and I can’t wait to finally do it at a live concert… for free, no less.

Free concerts aren’t the only highlight of Spring Fever in Breckenridge, so for a full rundown of all the fun check out www.breckspringfever.com
