A Snowmass summer tradition 27 years in the making, the Snowmass Free Concert Series is a must-do music event. Every Thursday evening (and two bonus Saturdays), locals and visitors alike gather on Fanny Hill to enjoy some of the country’s best live bands in a relaxed atmosphere with a spectacular mountain backdrop.
Tonight’s band: Bono Bros Band – Rock & Roll, Blues
About the band: Rob and Jim Bonaccorsi grew up in a home near Chicago where all genres of music were played. Music was a part of their lives from the beginning and what has driven their passion to be a part of the music and its soul. Some of their early influences were musicians that were talented at combining Blues, Country and Gospel into the early forms of Rock & Roll: Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and the Comets, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Little Richard to name a few. Also, Chicago is the “Home of the Blues” and some of Chicago blues greats were big influences including: Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf and Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Otis Rush and Lonnie Brooks. These Blues greats were subsequently a strong inspiration to the great quintessential rock musicians of our generation. These musical influences have given the passion to The Bono Bros Band’s music and live performances.
