FULL LINEUP FOR 2013 BRECK SRING FEVER BUD LIGHT CONCERT SERIES:
Sat. April 6th– The Mighty Mighty Bosstones– Since their inception in 1984, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have been one of music’s most prolific touring and recording bands. During their 27 year career they have played thousands of shows all over the world and released a slew of groundbreaking albums. The platinum-winning ska-core band from Boston are best known for their album Let’s Face It and their hit single “The Impression That I Get”, and are credited as one of the progenitors of the ska punk genre.
Sun. April 7th– The Dirty Heads– This SoCal rock/reggae/hip-hop band makes music that represents positivity and good vibes, with a melodic style that includes hip hop and ska punk genres. Their debut album featured one of this decade’s biggest singles, “Lay Me Down”, which spent 11 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart, a record for an independent release.
Sat. April 13th– 3OH!3– One of Colorado’s favorite hometown bands, 3OH!3 is the electropop duo of Sean Foreman and Nathanial Motte, who named the band after the area code of their hometown of Boulder, CO. Having collaborated with some of the biggest names in pop, such as Lil’ John, Katy Perry and Ke$ha, 3OH!3 has racked up an impressive resume that’s seen them vying for MTV Video Music Awards, selling out shows worldwide, racking up platinum singles, and creating instant parties at festivals across the globe.
Sun. April 14th– Matisyahu–Matisyahu fuses the contemporary styles of rap, beatboxing and hip-hop with the more traditional vocal disciplines of jazz's scat singing and Judaism's hazzan style of songful prayer, rolling it all into a dominant background of reggae. His hit single “King Without a Crown” off his album Live At Stubb’s launched him to stardom and was a Top 40 hit in the USA. He has been named Top Reggae Artist by Billboard and continues to produce inspirational hits that also contain deep meaning.
