It’s “Boo” time and the Surf Hotel announces a special Halloween Concert, Monday, October 31 in the Ivy Ballroom at the Surf Hotel in Buena Vista. The concert will feature Colorado-based band Twang is Dead. Led by Arthur Lee Land, Twang Is Dead is a Colorado community art project featuring a fresh new take on Grateful Dead songs.

Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct 31, and the show will start at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 (children 12 and under are free).

Guest artists for the evening will include Brian McRae (Kyle Hollingsworth Band and String Cheese Incident) on drums and EDM Loops along with Charlie Mertens (Rapidgrass, Thievery Corp) on bass, and master violinist Coleman Smith (Rapidgrass, Coletrain Music Academy) who will bring his extraordinary fiddle playing to the mix on select songs.

“The Surf Hotel in Buena Vista is one of our favorite venues in Colorado,” said Lee Land. “Our Halloween show will be different than our previous Surf shows. We will be mixing in a thumping electronic EDM Rave Dance Party element with transcendent visuals into our mix of Colorado Twang & Funk.”
