Greetings from Crested Butte! I suppose we could sing: “It’s been a long cold lonely winter…” Long and cold? Well, there’s truth to that, as amazingly enough the leaves are only just budding out here in the high country. Lonely? That could explain our lack of communication… it’s hard to believe the last update was at the end of the 2015 summer season. Time flies indeed.
Despite our silence online, we have played some great shows throughout this past winter and spring. Mid-January found us at the Dickens Opera House…despite the fact that it took us over seven hours to get there and that Karen was in a sling due to shoulder surgery, we had a wonderful gig in that wonderful venue. The end of that month we played a sold out show at our local Gunnison Arts Center, and rocked the full house once again in Montrose at the Turn of the Century. We were fortunate to get to head to the San Luis Valley in early March, where we helped the Alamosa Brewing Company celebrate 10 years of business as well as play a gig at one of our favorite venues, Wildwood Music. We are continually amazed and honored by the kindnesses of people we have met: a special highlight that trip was an incredible poem written by our friend and fan Harold, as well as personalized gift bags from another friend and fan, Margaret. We played an Easter show for senior citizens in our valley, some wonderful private parties, and just kicked off another season for the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park (our fourth time). It was the best one yet, despite the threatening weather…we were even accompanied by a fire dancer for part of one set!
The Beatles music was interspersed with lots of work, travel, and change for the four members of the band, bringing us up to this cusp of the summer season.
We’re really looking forward to playing some new venues (Stony Ridge Pavilion, Silt; Old Town Fort Collins; Alamosa’s Rails and Ales street party) as well as returning to some familiar and favorite spots (Buckley Park, Durango; the iBar Ranch in Gunnison; the Rio Grande Scenic Railway; Redstone Town Park…) Check our schedule for a complete listing of upcoming shows. It promises to be a wonderful summer for music…we look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones as we share our take on the timeless music of the Beatles. Many thanks to all for your support of live music and continual words of encouragement and enthusiasm; it wouldn’t be the same without you!
Doctor Robert, The Beatles tribute, was very fortunate to be invited to perform at two finishes of the 2014 Pro Challenge road bike race. The first performance was after Stage 2 in Mt. Crested Butte, the second was after Stage 3 at Monarch Mountain. Thanks to both LOC’s for having us, we’re honored to be part of the biggest cycling event in the U.S.
Doctor Robert, The Beatles Tribute band from Crested Butte, CO, is proud to share a video from 5/24/14 at Dickens Opera House in Longmont, CO. Enjoy…
This past weekend brought Doctor Robert, The Beatles Tribute, back for our third stop at The San Luis Valley Brewing Company, and our fourth visit to Del Norte, this time for the Rio Grande Savings and Loan Holiday party. We continue to be amazed by the enthusiasm and support we receive in The Valley. Thanks to everyone for coming out on two snowy nights to enjoy some Beatles music played by Doctor Robert from Crested Butte, Colorado.
