By Tony Fleming-Brum - July 24, 2017

We’re back once again with the Front Range Shuttle weekly events blog, and we hope you all had a great weekend! This week we’re looking at thunderstorms and rain just about every day, but with highs still reaching the low 80s, we’ll have plenty to do around town! Also, did you know that July 24th is Amelia Earhart day?
 
We’ll be starting off our week with Monday (7/24), and being one of the only days without rain in the forecast, we’ll definitely be enjoying the weather outdoors! We’ll be heading over to Monument Valley Park this Monday evening for their presentation of the Musical Monday Concert from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., and this week they’ll have Starburn playing live on the lawn! Bring a blanket, lawn chair, picnic, & friends to the annual Monument Valley Park Musical Mondays concert series on the lawn west of the CS Fine Arts Center!
 
As for Tuesday (7/25), we’re looking at what should be the hottest day of the week, and a very low chance of rain in the afternoon. With that in mind, we’ll be heading over to the Copperfalls Candle Lit Yoga class at the Aveda Spa and Salon! Head over and experience the serenity and tranquility that only Copperfalls Candle Lit Spa Yoga can give you. Unwind from your day as you practice a calming yoga set surrounded by peaceful candle light. It’s the perfect way to challenge your practice and find some serenity in the middle of the week!
 
And that brings us to Wednesday (7/26), the first day of heavy rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for this week. That’s alright, though, as we’ll be heading over to the Gold Camp Brewing Company for their weekly Live Trivia Game: Triviality! Triviality is the most fun, exciting live trivia game around! Bring your team and get ready for some fun! Lil Howard's BBQ will be serving delicious pulled pork, hot links, and more! Gold Camp has an amazing array of locally brewed beers on tap. The top 3 finishers get prizes with 1st place being a gift certificate AND a team flag in the coveted Trivia Trophy!
 
Thursday (7/27) will be another day of heavy rainfall and thunderstorms in the forecast, so we’ll be heading over to Jives Coffee Lounge for their bi-weekly Open Mic Night! Got a gift? Come on down and share it with the community here in town! Just sign up with the barista and strut your stuff for your 15 minutes of Fame! They have guitars, mics, a sick stage and great folks just dying to hear you!
 
At this point in the week I’m sure everyone will be tired of the storms and wet weather, but at least there’s still fun to be had! On Friday (7/28) we’ll be heading over to Stargazers Theatre for their Summer Fun Free Concert Series, featuring a wide range of incredible talent throughout the Pikes Peak Region! This week’s concert will be featuring Broadcast with Justus League, a soulful blues roots rock band formed in New York City and developed in Asheville, North Carolina, Produced by multi Grammy winner Jim Scott! Fronted by the explosive vocals of Caitlin Krisko, the bands live shows bring back the spirit of high energy performances originally made famous by 1970s classic rock bands!
 
You’re in luck if you’re here in town on Saturday (7/29), as we’ve got a very special event on the books: The African Drumming & Dance Festival and Fashion Extravaganza!

Wrapping up our week with Sunday (7/30), we’ll be heading over to the Broadmoor World Arena Ice Hall for their afternoon Open Skating!

This Week in Colorado Springs (7/17 - 7/23)

Summer Weather is Back!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - July 16, 2017

Good afternoon again Colorado Springs, and welcome to this week’s edition of the Front Range Shuttle local events blog! That was a pretty crazy week of rain we just had, especially on Friday! Luckily, we’re looking at a much drier week through Thursday, and scattered showers in the forecast for Friday and next weekend. At least the plants will be loving this rain, and we’ll seeing much more of the beautiful green mountains with this much moisture!
 
Kicking off our week of sunshine with Monday (7/17), we’ll be heading over to the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center for their Art Detectives: The Great Masterpiece Mystery game! Put on your deerstalker (Sherlock Holmes hat) and join the Buell Children’s Museum for a fun and engaging mid-year exhibition. Your mission is to solve one of the masterpiece mysteries set up throughout the museum. Develop the detective tools you need to become a super sleuth and uncover the solutions when you scan your hand and examine finger prints, search for hidden clues, decode secret messages, and discover your “detective name.” Favorite areas get a detective makeover - like the master of disguise area in our costume corner, and more. Visitors will try their hand at painting, portrait sketching, and sculpture as they learn about the elements of art. It should be a fun afternoon!
 
After an afternoon of mystery and art, we’ll be heading up to the Simpich Marionette Showcase on Tuesday (7/18) for their performance of the Tinker Yorkinee Spree’s Fantabulous Suitcase Circus! Puppeteer David Simpich is pulling some old strings and plenty of new ones as his Olde English Tinker/Clown opens his wares-for-sale suitcase at a most unusual angle— revealing a troupe of highly talented Yorkshire Terriers vying to take the center ring. For this special summer show, all ages are invited to find a seat under an amazing mini big top that celebrates the magic and hope only found in a world of spangles, sawdust, and daring…. Tinker Yorkinee Spree’s style, that is.
 
With a high of 90 and very clear skies in the forecast for Wednesday (7/19), we’ll be heading up to Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs for a different breed of Summer Concert; the 312th Army Reserve Band! The Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce, Visitors Bureau, and Office of Economic Development would like to welcome the 312th Army Reserve Band to our Soda Springs Park Summer Concert Series Line up! Bring your lawn-chairs and your family down to the park for a 7:00 pm show that's not to be missed!
 
Thursday evening (7/20) we’ll be heading over to the Stargazers Theatre for my favorite kind of concert: a free one! This week they’ll be presenting the Pikes Peak Brass Band, an elite 33-member ensemble in the classic British brass band tradition. Concerts electrify audiences in educational and public settings and promote excellence in music. Since its founding in 1998, the Pikes Peak Brass Band has maintained high musical standards for all its members. These standards have infused the band with new talent, helping it to evolve into a truly outstanding representative of British brass music. This will be a show you won’t want to miss!
 
With rain in the forecast on Friday (7/21), we’ll be heading over to The Gallery Below for their Friday Eve Bizarre Bazaar! Head over and peruse their Weird and Fabulous wares including Clothing, Jewelry, Art, Shoes, and much more. They’ll also have the walls lined with original art pieces, artist signings, tattoos upstairs at Pins and Needles, and general community weirdness! I know I’m curious about just how weird Colorado Springs can get!
 
We won’t be missing a whole lot outside on Saturday (7/22) with rain in the forecast once again, so we’ll be heading over to Front Range BBQ in Old Colorado City where they’ll be hosting the J Miller Band! This band is a true hybrid of many genre's, but floats along the Americana river at a nice easy pace. Miller and Company paid wonderful homage to their heroes on their latest record, and those heroes are smiling, guaranteed. The J.Miller Band is truly a result of musical friends getting together for one purpose, to sing the songs, play their instruments, and enjoy all the fruits of their labors!
 
Wrapping up our week with Sunday (7/23), we’ll be heading right back to the Stargazers Theatre for a very special event: Harry Teubner’s Celebration of Life! Harry Teubner was one of the biggest supporters of the music scene in Colorado Springs. On Sunday, July 23, members of our musical community are coming together to honor and celebrate the life of this wonderful & kind soul. Members of Starburn, Whiskey Fingers, Fish Tank Piranhas, The VooDoo Hawks and many more will be performing in memory of Harry and his love of music. Come out and help them give Harry the sendoff he deserves!

And as always, don't forget about Front Range Shuttle! From cozy SUV's to 25 passenger buses, we have all your airport transportation needs covered!

This Week in Colorado Springs (7/10 - 7/16)

Rainy Days Ahead!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - July 9, 2017

 Hello again Colorado Springs! We here at Front Range Shuttle hope you all had an amazing 4th of July, and took advantage of all the fun events around town! We’re coming off a week of gorgeous, hot weather, and the high temperatures should continue all the way through next Sunday! Unfortunately, along with those high temperatures we’re also looking at rain and scattered thunderstorms every day, so it’ll be a hot, humid week here in the Springs!
 
Kicking off our week with Monday (7/10), we’ll be heading out to Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs once again to take advantage of the one day of sunny weather before the rain clouds roll in. The Little London Winds will be continuing their 2017 Summer Concert Series: Metamorphosis, and the theme for the day will be Rodeo Days! This series of family-friendly, free concerts features a variety of music. This concert series is played outside in the pavilion at Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs. The Little London Winds encourages audience members to bring a picnic dinner as well as folding chairs. No tickets are necessary and the concert is free and open to the public!
 
On to Tuesday (7/11), and our first day with heavy rain forecast for the afternoon. With that in mind, we’ll be heading over to The Modbo Gallery for their showing of “Arcade Addicts” by Colorado Springs resident Doug Mansfield. “Arcade Addicts” is a nostalgic tour through artist Doug Mansfield’s childhood. Before Atari 2600, which allowed you to play video games at home, you had to go to the arcade game room. Says Mansfield, “I used to get $2.00 allowance each week, and I would spend it all at the Red baron game room that was right behind my house in the Circle East Mall.” Mansfield wanted to capture the fun and excitement that he felt when he played those games– they took him to another world. This show features 14 new original paintings, along with a host of merchandise ranging from 2.25″ buttons to greeting cards, all bearing the images designed by the artist. There will also be swag bags for the early arrivers!
 
After an afternoon of nostalgia on Tuesday, we’ll be heading to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center on Wednesday (7/12) for The Curious Palate: Wine Tasting Classes! The Curious Palate is a tasting class series that is designed to explore the world of wine and spirits and learn your palate in an intimate and friendly atmosphere. The Curious Palate is for the taster who wants to take their personal wine or spirits experience to a new level by building knowledge while having fun! What is the difference between drinking and tasting and does it matter? How does what’s in your glass pair with food? How can you elevate any event with a little more flavor? While we take our studies and classes seriously, we strive to make each tasting class delightful and dynamic!
 
For those of you brave enough to venture out into the rainy weather on Thursday (7/13), they’re be a very fun event happening at Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs once again. Starting this Thursday, and running every Thursday until October 5th, the Manitou Community Market will be at the park from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.! Fun activities, animals, music, a mini adventure playground, and best of all, it’s a locally sourced Farmer’s Market! It’ll definitely be worth checking out if you don’t mind getting a little wet!
 
This Friday (7/14) we’ll be heading out to the Stargazers Theatre for their presentation of The Hazel Miller Band, led by a singer that the city of Denver singled out as 1 of 150 people who make Denver a better place to live! Hazel Miller is not just a great singer, "she is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought-after performer in Colorado for the past 24 years. Whether she is singing blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul. Hazel began her 38-year career in Louisville, Kentucky, where she rose to the top of the music scene. She opened for popular artists such as Mel Torme, James Brown, Temptations, Earl Klugh, Bob James and many others. This is a show you won’t want to miss!
 
Saturday (7/15) we’ll be trekking out of the Colorado Springs area a bit to Cripple Creek, but it’ll be more than worth the drive! The city of Cripple Creek will be hosting the Cripple Creek Music Fest, a full day of FREE music, food, beer, and fun! See country great Joe Nichols as he is joined by the Christopher Shayne Band and the legendary Molly Hatchet. The music kicks off at noon with plenty of local and regional favorites for a huge street party on Bennett Ave. And don’t miss Gold Rush Days in Victor for some wild mining mayhem while you’re there!
 
Bringing our week to a close with Sunday (7/16), we’ll be heading up to Manitou Springs once again for the annual Barr Trail Mountain Race! With a slight chance of rain in the afternoon, this should be a perfect event to kick start your morning. The Barr Trail Mountain Race This is a competitive mountain trail running event held annually in July. The race starts at 7:00am on Ruxton Ave directly in front of the Cog Railway Station and proceeds 6.3 miles up Barr Trail, before turning around at Barr Camp. Runners who do not make the cut-off times will not receive an official finish time and are not guaranteed course support.

This Week in Colorado Springs (7/3-7/9)

Happy Independence Day!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - July 2, 2017

Hello again Colorado Springs, and welcome to this week’s installment of the Front Range Shuttle local events blog! We’re coming off a week of nice, sunny summer weather, and it’s looking like that trend should hold up all the way through next weekend! With highs in the 80s and low 90s, it’ll be great weather to get out and celebrate Independence Day!
 
Starting off our week with Monday (7/3), we’ll head up to Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs, where The Little London Winds will be continuing their 2017 Summer Concert Series: Metamorphosis, and the theme for the day will be Red, White, and Blue! This series of family-friendly, free concerts features a variety of music. This concert series is played outside in the pavilion at Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs. The Little London Winds encourages audience members to bring a picnic dinner as well as folding chairs. No tickets are necessary and the concert is free and open to the public. With clear skies and nice, warm summer weather in the forecast, this will be a great chance to get out of the house and enjoy the evening!
 
As for Tuesday (7/4, Independence Day!), we’ll be heading out to Memorial Park in Colorado Springs for the Summer Symphony, presented by the Colorado Springs Philharmonic! Get ready for the region’s largest event, featuring troops from Fort Carson, The Liberty Belles, amazing food, and thunderous fireworks to light up the night sky. Get there early to claim a prime spot! This event is free to the public.
 
With half the week over with, and the weekend fast approaching, why not take the opportunity to unwind a bit this Wednesday evening (7/5)? And what better place to do it than the Gold Camp Brewing Company, where they’ll be having their weekly live trivia night, Triviality! Bring your team and get ready for some fun! Lil Howard's BBQ will be serving delicious pulled pork, hot links, and more! Gold Camp also has an amazing array of locally brewed beers on tap. The top 3 finishers in the trivia game get prizes, with 1st place being a gift certificate AND a team flag on the coveted Trivia Trophy!
 
This coming Thursday (7/6) we’ll be heading out to the park once again, this time to Angel Mist Park here in Colorado Springs, for the Flying Horse Summer Concert Series! This week they’ll be presenting Leslie Tom & The Boys, a rare treat for Country Music lovers. From the first few notes of a Leslie Tom song, you’re instantly taken back to a time when singers like Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn were winning the hearts of country music lovers everywhere. But keep listening, and you’ll hear a voice and a sound that is remarkably current, even timeless. This Denver-based songstress is defying the odds by steering away from the “Nashville style” country trends. Instead, combining relatable lyrics with her bubbly, sassy personality and an un-mistakable voice (along with the occasional fiddle and pedal steel guitar), Leslie Tom stands poised to hit the mainstream with her own traditional-modern spin on country music.
 
Friday (7/7) we’ll be stopping by the Stargazers Theatre, a staple here on this blog that has been missed recently, for their presentation of the Flying W Wranglers! The Flying W Wranglers have been performing music for over 63 years, making them the second oldest Western Music group in the world. As you ride along with the Wranglers, you will experience the classic country, western swing and gospel music that we all grew up on, along with a bit of Cowboy wit. During their decades of playing, they have performed at some of the premier venues around the country including Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry. Today they continue to be one of the premier Western Music groups west of the Mississippi and are riding down the trail with their saddlebags full of great songs from the American West. With their unique western harmonies, fantastic yodeling, and superb instrumentation, the Flying W Wranglers are proving that the best is yet to come!
 
This Saturday (7/8) should be an exciting night at The Perk Downtown, as they’ll be presenting a new band from here on the Front Range: The Lesson Plan! From relieving stress while deployed in Iraq to busking in Central Park and playing gigs in LA, members of new folk rock trio The Lesson Plan have a large curriculum of experience to play on. The Lesson Plan plans to give listeners and education in toe tapping tunes. Veronique Van Pelt, Barrett Ward and Ben Brich all have a wide range of experiences to draw from. “We like songs that get stuck in your head and make you tap your toes yet resonate with life experience,” said Van Pelt. “I want them to feel like they are a part of each song's narrative,” said Ward. “At the end, the listener will find resolution (or non-resolution), but the song should feel complete in some sort of emotional way.” Choruses and chord progression is where Ward finds his inspiration, while Van Pelt gets it from a different source. “It's like fishing, if you show up and keep at it you can pull some beautiful things out of the notes,” Van Pelt said.
 
Wrapping up our week with Sunday (7/9), we’ll be celebrating the Changing Times Quartet’s CD release at the Pikes Peak Jazz and Swing Society! The afternoon performance​ will include selections from their latest "Pop-A-Jazz" album which will be available for purchase at the show. The songs are all fun, the lyrics are clean, and the overall mood of the album is happy with just a few contemplative interludes. The band will try to capture the positive energy of this latest album in a live setting! There will also be dancing, door prizes, a cash bar, and a full buffet and dessert bar available.

And as always, don't forget about Front Range Shuttle! From cozy SUV's to 25 passenger buses, we have all your airport transportation needs covered!

This Week in Colorado Springs (6/26 - 07/02)

Happy Pre-4th of July!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - June 25, 2017

It was a bit of a chilly weekend here in Colorado Springs, and we do still have a small chance of rain and/or thunderstorms in the forecast for Monday (6/26), but after that we should be seeing another nice, long stretch of warm weather and clear skies here in town!

Starting off our week with Monday (6/26), we’ll be heading up to the mountains for a bit of area history at the Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mines! Experience mining old and new this summer and explore gold rush history past and present at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The museum will again be hosting tours of the Newmont Mining Corporation’s Cripple Creek & Victor operations near Victor. Tour experiences will offer the chance to see giant haul trucks, shovels and drill rigs in action in the large surface mine between Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado. Watch boulders being crushed into gravel and learn about the modern refining methods while helping to preserve the district’s 1890’s history!

With the rain having passed us by, on Tuesday (6/27) we’ll be stopping by the Space Foundation Discovery Center for the launch of their 2017 Summer of Discovery! This year they’ll be exploring what it takes to grow food in space! You can also help them vote on what you want them to grow over the summer. They will be having a lot of fun with more special activities and the opening of their hands-on summer exhibit "Roll, Drop, Bounce". Don’t forget to pick up your Summer of Activity passport. Every time you visit you’ll get it marked off. At the end of the summer turn in your passport for an opportunity to win exciting prizes at the Discovery Center!

Wednesday (6/28) we’re looking at a forecast of mostly sunny skies, a light breeze, and temperatures in the mid-high 80s, so we’ll definitely be spending the day outdoors! Luckily for us, we don’t need to wander aimlessly looking for something to do, as volunteer naturalist Lucy Bell will be leading a Wildflower Hike at the Cheyenne Mountain State Park! This beautiful and easy guided nature walk lasts about an hour and a half, and focuses on all of the wonderful wildflowers that can be found around the park!

Continuing on with our week on Thursday (6/29), we’ll be heading up to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for one of their adult-only events, Moonlight on the Mountain! Mix and mingle under the stars at a unique, age 21+ evening event at the Zoo! This is one of the region’s premier annual mixers featuring the best food and drink our region has to offer. Enjoy unlimited samples of beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks while tasting delicious eats from area restaurants. Local musicians will set the mood throughout the Zoo and will have you dancing the night away until 10 p.m.! All event proceeds benefit the care of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s animals.

After an evening at the zoo, we’ll be settling down a bit on Friday (6/30) at the Colorado Springs Charter Academy, where they’ll be presenting their version of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, with a steam punk twist! Shakespeare’s most accessible, hilarious, and family-friendly comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will be dished up to you in a Victorian age meets Industrial Revolution Steam Punk rendition. Their hope with this show is to delight children and adults alike, and to support the Make a Wish foundation.

Kicking off the month of July with Saturday (7/1), we’ll be heading over to the America the Beautiful Park (downtown Colorado Springs) for the 2017 Colorado Springs Art and Music Festival! Browse the park lawns with rows of booths filled with juried art for sale by national and local fine artists. Spend some time in the free admission Creation Station (For All Ages) to explore creativity with staff guided or free form art projects. There’s something for everyone and for a small fee, their fantastic face painter can create imaginative art on festival faces. An amazing aerialist performs and inspires viewers to “fly the silks.” while kids can play at the base of the 65’ Julia Penrose water sculpture fountain. Make room for some delicious food from the vendors, and Kona Ice and a fresh squeeze lemonade takes the July heat off!

Wrapping up this pre-4th of July weekend with Sunday (7/2), Fort Carson MWR is celebrating Independence Day with a two-day Freedom Fest that includes a freedom-themed color run, a car show, live entertainment, light shows, fireworks, and more! Admission to both days of the festival is free, but attractions and concessions prices may vary. On July 1st they will still have Gate Access Procedures in place, but the gates will be open to the public on the 2nd of July (Sunday).

And as always, don't forget about Front Range Shuttle! From cozy SUV's to 25 passenger buses, we have all your airport transportation needs covered!
