On Tuesday, February 22nd, members of the Boulder/Denver music community will converge on Denver’s Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom for Come Alive For Colorado, a benefit concert for those impacted by the Marshall Fire, which destroyed hundreds of Boulder-area homes in the final days of 2021.
Organized by Ali Jay in partnership with Live For Live Music, Come Alive For Colorado will feature over thirty notable touring musicians. The diverse collection of scheduled performers pulls from a wide range of genres, representing the stylistic diversity of the Colorado live music community.
Artists set to appear at Come Alive For Colorado on February 22nd include Kris Myers (Umphrey’s McGee, Kick The Cat), DJ Williams (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe), Jason Hann (The String Cheese Incident), Dominic Lalli (Big Gigantic), Adam Deitch (Lettuce, Break Science), Borahm Lee (Break Science), Marcus Rezak, and a number of extended The Motet family members including current band members Dave Watts, Joey Porter, Ryan Jalbert, and Garrett Sayers and past member Scott Messersmith.
The event will also include clothing drive. Please bring any good-condition clothing you wish to donate to those impacted by the fire to the coat check area of the venue on the day of the show.
Those not able to attend the two-set benefit show in person will be able to tune in to a livestream via Jamcast featuring set break DJ sets by Doey Joey and DJ Charisma.
