It goes without saying, these are tough times for everyone. The Corona Virus has stopped all public music performances and any type of events from weddings and private parties to festivals and concerts. We had everything canceled in March, April and May with some events postponing into the fall of 2020. That is the saving grace. We know we will all get through this and we will all get to get our groove on again.
We miss the spring ski season here in Vail, Colorado. I was reminiscing about all the great times we have here in March and April and all the good times, spring skiing, big parties and music that was cut short on March 16th when we shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our band was scheduled to play the Pink Vail dance party, the worlds biggest ski event to raise money for cancer. We where looking forward to throwing down in Vail, playing some of our newest music and rocking the crowd with that funky get down rockin thing we do with the Jonny Mogambo Band. We also had great dates scheduled at Pepi’s and the Bridge Street Bar in the Vail Village, The Broken Arrow at Arrowhead ski resort, a great springtime get down party in the rocky mountains and fun parties in Aspen and Breckenridge. I am happy that most people that hired our band for April and May are rescheduling their events. This will help us in the future when we are allowed to go back out in public. There where also great events like the Taste of Vail culinary festival and Spring Back to Vail music fest that we did not get to experience this spring. There are countless other experiences that I know will be missed. We remember all of them and remember all of you and hope for better days to come.
It seems every day brings new news. I have always been an optimist and I know we will get back to good times this summer. We are all trying to do our part by quarantining, supporting our local businesses however we can and helping out those who need help the most in these difficult times. If anyone who reads this needs help in Vail, I am here for you. I am healthy and strong and can lend a hand whether it’s a simple errand, any real estate needs, grocery shopping or simply someone to talk to about what is happening here in the Vail Valley.
Since we can’t play any live shows these days, any weddings or any type of private event, we are asking if people can help us out by buying some of our newest music we have out. You can’t find any of this on Spotify, Apple Music or any streaming service. We saved this just for you and would love it if you or any of your family or friends would help support the Jonny Mogambo Band. Go to www.JMoBand.com and right there on the HOME page on the right side is a way to purchase and download our music. It would mean so much to us to share this music with you that we spent so much time producing. We wish you all peace and love in these crazy times and thanks in advance for your support.
