Two weeks ago the Chico opened up the beautiful Bell Park with its first ever concert and camping and with the concert being a hit, they’ve decided to open up the park for all types of events and more concerts. Tess and I actually had our wedding at the Bell Park and even though I’m bias, it was a really, really beautiful setting. The park is in a huge cottonwood grove with a view of Pikes Peak, a lodge pole band stand and a bar that we built under a tree with the limbs acting as a sort of roof. It’s pretty cool. So needless to say, the concert was a blast and everyone had fun dancing the night away and hanging out around the bonfire.
The very first, groundbreaking band was Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans. The band was just nominated as 2010 AMA Emerging Artist of the Year, were recently signed by New West Records who are home to Kris Kristofferson, John Hiatt, Steve Earle, were the producers of the Crazy Heart soundtrack and many more and they just played at the Olympics in Vancouver. They are a band on the rise and really put on an amazing live show.
