Things were jamming in the barn at our All-inclusive Colorado resort this week. No, it wasn’t the staff orientation, or getting the new horses ready for our summer dude ranch season. It was a real life group of rock stars (although they may not like me referring to them that way!). Through a connection with one of the band members, we agreed to host the band Dispatch as they prepped for their upcoming tour, which begins at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver this Friday. The staff and horses have been able to enjoy listening to the group practice, and get to know the guys and their crew. As a thank you, and special treat for the staff, the band gave tickets to our crew so most of our crew will be able to attend one of the shows this weekend.
In addition, the band members made a trip to the North Routt Charter School to meet with the kids, talk a bit about music and play a few songs for them. Maybe a few of these kids will pick up an instrument as a result of this inspiration!
