The Ouray Hot Springs Pool is proud to presents the second Mountain Air Music Series, a free outdoor concert series held in Fellin Park in beautiful Ouray, Colorado. Each Thursday in the month of June from 6–9 pm, you will be treated to incredible live music along with great food, non-alcoholic beverages, and beer, wine and spirits for purchase. Local non-profit organizations will benefit from beverage and food sales during the concerts. Each week we feature a new regional micro-brew and guest pourers from our non-profit community, so be sure to come out to support your favorite brew & crew, too. The concerts are multi-faceted family-friendly affairs, with great kids’ entertainment to go along with the music, so be sure to bring the whole family.
All four Ouray concerts will be broadcast live on KVNF Community Radio 90.9 FM and will be streaming live on the web at kvnf.org. After the show, join the opening bands for a free intimate musical set at O’Brien’s Pub & Grill. Music begins at 9 pm.
Here's the OFFICIAL 2013 Mountain Air Music Series Line up!
June 6th – March Fourth Marching Band
March Fourth Marching Band (M4 to its fans) is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires dancing in an atmosphere of celebration. Aside from their marching band themed costumes, as well as the 5-piece percussion corps and 7-part brass section, M4 is far from a “marching band” in any traditional sense (though this group of about 20 has been known to parade down Main Street before taking the stage). M4 is anchored by funky electric bass and has been evolving into a more guitar- and vocal-driven musical experience.
Start out the night with Grand Junction's own classic-soul & funky-pop diva with a little jazz influence.
June 6th is also our official Emergency Services appreciation night. Bring out your kiddos to touch all the cool trucks and say thanks to all the good people who keep all of us safe!

June 13th– Otis Taylor Band
Part of Otis Taylor's appeal is his contrasting character traits. But it is precisely this element of surprise that makes him one of the most compelling artists to emerge in recent years. In fact, Guitar Player magazine writes, "Otis Taylor is arguably the most relevant blues artist of our time." Whether it's his unique instrumentation (he fancies banjo and cello), or it's the sudden sound of a female vocal, or a seemingly upbeat optimistic song takes a turn for the forlorn, what remains consistent is poignant storytelling based in truth and history.

June 20th – Current Swell
This talented quartet hails from British Columbia and brings an eclectic Pacific Northwest indie-rock sound to the series. Musical influences from reggae, folk, surf and blues genres can be heard throughout their original music. The band is landing in Ouray after an extensive tour schedule including Australia, the U.K. and Europe.

June 27th – California Honeydrops
Digging deep into the roots of American music, The California Honeydrops embrace the traditions of Blues, Gospel, Second Line New Orleans Jazz, and early R&B. With stellar performances of traditional material as well as their own innovative music, The California Honeydrops get people out of their seats and onto the floor, dancing, sweating, and singing along.
Opening set by The Dustbowl Revival www.dustbowlrevival.com
"The music is so genuine, you can almost taste the PBR and port wine being passed around the front porch during the Great Depression on the bayou, on or the post-fire Chicago streets. Trumpets blaze, guitars wail, and the spirits of a great revival becomes you." --Train Wreck'd Society
