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. Please note: You should expect a 20 degree temperature difference between the trail head and Barr Camp. 

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 (7/3-7/9)

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).

This Week in Colorado Springs (6/19 - 6/25)

Happy Father's Day!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - June 18, 2017

Hello once again Colorado Springs, and welcome to this week’s installment of the Front Range Shuttle weekly events blog! I hope you had a great Father’s Day weekend, and that you’re ready for another week of beautiful summer weather, and some great events to go with it! With highs in the 80s and 90s all week, and no rain at all in the forecast, it’s looking like summer has finally started for us!
 
Starting off our week with Monday (6/19), we’ll head up to Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs, where The Little London Winds will be kicking off their 2017 Summer Concert Series: Metamorphosis! 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!
 
After an evening with some very experienced, professional musicians on Monday, we’ll be heading over to the Packard Performance Hall for the Colorado College Summer Music Festival on Tuesday (6/20) to see some up-and-coming musicians strut their stuff! The Colorado College Summer Music Festival is an intensive three-week program for 52 advanced student musicians who work with world-class faculty to further develop their musical talents. The Festival has brought the very best in chamber and orchestra music to the wider Colorado Springs community since 1984. With 26 concerts in a 3-week period, from classical to contemporary, children's concerts and free lunchtime concerts, the festival is sure to offer something for everyone!
 
Wednesday (6/21) we’ll be heading up to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to join them in celebrating and supporting World Giraffe Day! World Giraffe Day is a worldwide celebration initiated by the Giraffe Conservation Foundation that aims to raise support, create awareness, and spotlight the challenges that giraffes face in the wild – on the longest day of the year! Join us for giraffe-themed activities and remember to wear your giraffe costume for the giraffe parade! You’ll also have a chance to meet their herd and the keepers in African Rift Valley during a variety of demos and talks!
 
With so many events going on during the summer, it might be nice to get out and do something on your own to get away from the crowd as well. With that in mind, this Thursday (6/22) would be a great day to avoid the crowds and head up to Manitou Springs (once again) for a day on the Manitou Springs Incline! The Manitou Springs Incline, also known as the Manitou Incline or simply the Incline, is a popular hiking trail rising above Manitou Springs, Colorado, near Colorado Springs. The trail is the remains of a former 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge funicular railway whose tracks washed out during a rock slide in 1990. The Incline is famous for its sweeping views and steep grade, with an average grade of 45% (24°) and as steep as 68% (34°) in places, making it a fitness challenge for visitors and locals alike. The incline gains over 2,000 feet (610 m) of elevation in less than one mile!
 
Friday (6/23) we’ll dive right back in to the Summer fun here in Colorado Springs, this time at the Stargazers Theatre, where they’ll be presenting Starburn, with special guest Balanced Rock! Remember Vanilla Fudge, The Doobie Brothers, Chicago, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Santana, Cream and many more? Starburn will take you there! Starburn is a high-energy rock band playing the music of the late 60's and early 70's based in Colorado Springs. Put on your best 60’s threads and join Starburn for a total rock experience! The Colorado-based musical band Balanced Rock is named after the famous 700-ton natural red sandstone rock formation located in the scenic Garden of the Gods in their hometown of Colorado Springs. Like the uniqueness and rarity that balanced rocks appear in nature precariously perched to seem to defy gravity, likewise, the rock group Balanced Rock, is a one-of-a-kind musical force of nature!
 
This Saturday (6/24) will be a special opportunity if you’re here in Colorado Springs, as the Manitou Cliff Dwellings will be hosting the wolves from Colorado Wolf Adventures! Explore the fascinating architecture of the ancient Anasazi and browse through two museums featuring cultural displays, all overlooking the historic town of Manitou Springs. The magic and mystery of the Native American culture is sure to delight visitors of all ages, and with the wolves visiting for the day, it’ll be an extra special afternoon for the young ones!
 
Wrapping up our week with Sunday (6/25), we’ll be heading over to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center to check out their exhibit “Everyday Extraordinary: From Rembrandt to Warhol”! Sparked by their first fine art acquisition, intended primarily to be a prudent financial investment, the exceptional collection of Morton and Tobia Mower has multiplied into scores of Rembrandt etchings, Impressionist paintings and prints by masters such as Claude Monet and Berthe Morisot. Their collection also includes examples from some of the most recognizable artists of the 20th century – Pop artists such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Roy Lichtenstein. Everyday life, familiar stories and common objects comprise each image, but these stunning artworks are far from ordinary!

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 (6/12 - 6/18)

Happy Kamehameha Day and Happy Father's Day!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - June 11, 2017

Good Morning Colorado Springs, and welcome once again to this week’s installment of the Front Range Shuttle weekly events blog! Our week-long marathon of afternoon showers seems to have come to a close, and the sun is starting to shine quite a bit brighter. With highs in the mid-to-high 80s all week, and mostly clear skies all the way through Sunday, it’ll be a great week to start working on your tan for the summer!

Starting our week off with Monday (6/12), we’ll be heading over to the Garden of the Gods Nature Center, where they’ll be hosting the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society for an evening Star Party! The Colorado Springs Astronomical Society will be there with telescopes, helping to educate guests about the night sky. All ages welcome. The event will be held in the parking lot at the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center. Hope to see you here for this fun, FREE family event!

After an evening of stargazing, we’ll spend our Tuesday (6/13) with some excellent music at The Black Sheep, where they’ll be hosting The Delta Saints! Among rock ‘n’ roll’s many mistresses and muses, California remains one of the most enigmatic, enduring, and enchanting. The Golden State’s allure can notably be attributed to the intoxicating melodic excess of the Eagles’ “Hotel California” and the finger-picked pensiveness of Led Zeppelin’s “Going To California,” to name a few. The West Coast’s influence courses throughout The Delta Saints’ 2017 full-length album, Monte Vista. Irresistible lead single “California” snaps from a vintage synth swell into a rough-n-tumble guitar riff and bluesy howl. It’s an anthem for throwing caution to the wind, skipping town and setting out to find something more. What better band to get you in the mood for some summer exploring!

If rock and roll isn’t your cup of tea, you may enjoy this Wednesday (6/14) at The Loft Music Venue, where they’ll be hosting Swingin’ with Sweeney! It is with great excitement that The Loft will welcome The Boyd Sweeney Jazz Quartet as their official swing band. Come out and join them for their first monthly live band night. They are so excited to have them and can't wait to celebrate and dance the night away. The theme for the night is bow ties and polka dots. Come dressed in your best swing attire and dance the night away!

Thursday afternoon (6/15) we’ll head back over to the Garden of the Gods Nature Center for their “Gallop in the Garden” 5k Fun Run! It doesn’t get any better than this… Run/ Jog/ Walk in Garden of the Gods Park! Meet in the lower lobby of the Garden of the Gods Nature Center. They've mapped out 5 phenomenal routes through Garden of the Gods and Rock Ledge Ranch that start and end at the Visitor & Nature Center. This is not a race, just a fun run and a way to enjoy comradery and the Great Colorado Outdoors in the #1 Park in the U.S.!

Friday (6/16) will be another great chance to get out and enjoy the sun at Memorial Park here in Colorado Springs, where they’ll be hosting the Pikes Peak Celtic Festival! International bands and performance groups combine with great food, music, and dancing for a weekend filled with authentic Celtic Culture entertainment! From Whiskey and Scotch tasting, to Highland Athletics, to Celtic Fireworks, you’re sure to find something that piques your interest!  Named “The Top Spot in America” by NBC’s Today Show, come on out and see why!

I hope you’ve still got some energy left in you this Saturday (6/17) after the long week of fun events in the sun, because we’ll be heading over to the Pikes Peak Center for their presentation of George Lopez and Cedric the Entertainer performing live! Numerous motion picture appearances, countless television shows, sitcoms and standup specials, George Lopez & Cedric the Entertainer have been breaking ground in the comedy business and bringing the laughs for decades. This is a once in a lifetime chance to see two members of comedy royalty come together for the comedy event of the year!

Wrapping up our week of fun summer events with Father’s Day (Sunday, 6/18), we’ll be heading over to the Garden of the Gods Collection Golf Club, where they’ll be hosting a Father’s Day Brews, Blues, and Brunch event! Celebrate Dad and summer at the Father's Day pool party, from 12-2 p.m. Enjoy food from off the grill, drink specials for the whole family and games in the pool!

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!
