To all of those looking forward to summertime in the mountains, the GoPro games in Vail are a great start to the summer season there.
The GoPro Mountain Games are the country’s largest celebration of adventure sports, art and music and they return to Vail, CO June 6-9, 2019. After a full day of events like paddle boarding, climbing, kayaking and mountain biking you can catch some great music at the Gerald Ford Amphitheater with acts this year like Melvin Seals and Joan Osborne playing the songs of Bob Dylan. There are opening bands starting at 7:15pm and then main acts come on at 8:45pm. But some great music, like many music festivals, can be found in the local clubs and bars.
One of Vail’s best entertainers, Jonny Mogambo, will be playing Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Pepi’s in the Vail Village. J Mo plays two sets per day from 4pm to 6pm and 7pm to 9pm. This is a great place to get warmed up for the night shows or a great place to go after a day outside at the GoPro games. They have great beers on tap, a wide selection of wine and spirits and good food to keep you going all day and all night. Jonny Mogambo will be playing a mix of his original rock music and covers that will have you singing along, dancing and making memories here in Vail. This is simply the best one man solo acoustic rock show you will see anywhere!
The Jonny Mogambo Band recently released a new recording, titled “American Sexy” with 12 new original rock songs. You can check out some of the new music at www.JMoBand.com. Jonny Mogambo will be playing the new music in his solo act along with some of his great rock tunes he always does to get crowds going, drinking and having a good time here in the Vail Village. This will be a highlight during the GoPro games as Jonny Mogambo has only played a few public shows during the summer in Vail over the last few years. Come out for the GoPro games, come out for the music, come out for some good times in Vail, Colorado.
