Special Guests: Green River Steamboat

Every once in a while a band comes along that stands out amongst the crowded fields of the bluegrass world. The Blue Canyon Boys, a premier bluegrass band of the Rocky Mountain West, are one of those bands. Winners of the 2008 Telluride Bluegrass Festival band contest, The Blue Canyon Boys have gone on to perform across the country. Blending incredible brother-duet-style vocals and hard-driving instrumental proficiency, this energetic band has created an infectious brew of hard-driving Colorado bluegrass, that continues to garner praise across performing arts centers, first class music festivals and choice listening rooms. This bluegrass powerhouse consists of Gary Dark on mandolin, Jason Hicks on guitar, Drew Garrett on bass, and award-winning Chris Elliott on banjo.
Opening the June 27 show will be Sublette County's finest bluegrass-meets-punk-rock 5-piece Green River Steamboat.

Part of the Town of Pinedale's July 4th Celebration

For the second year in a row we'll be teaming up with the Town of Pinedale to provide entertainment for the annual 4th of July Celebration. Headlining the even this year will be Austin, TX honkey-tonk band Rosie & the Ramblers. If honky tonk is a feeling, it’s the way you feel at a live show from Rosie and the Ramblers. Those who’ve seen one have felt it all: the heartbreak, the humor, the don’t-mess-with-me attitude. And they know before the night is over they’ll feel like dancing.

Special Guests: Palomino Shakedown (Austin, TX)

Raised in rural Wyoming, Jalan Crossland is one of a very few “alt country” artists who still claims the “country” as home. This anchors the ‘truth is stranger than fiction’ wobble to songs about 21st century rural life. Dazzling guitar and banjo fingerpicking complete his kanky tales of hobos, tires, “mobile homes”, motorcycles, trucks, cars, shotgun-wielding vice presidents and methamphetamines.
Opening the July 17 show will be Austin, TX's Palomino Shakedown. Combining the influences of Country, Southern Soul, and Rock n' Roll, Palomino Shakedown delivers original music that appeals to the head, the heart and the hips.

Special Guests: The Boom & the Bust

The Crane Wives are a homegrown indie-folk-rock band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. The evocative, poetic songs of lead-singers / multi-instrumentalists Kate Pillsbury and Emilee Petersmark are brought to life with the help of bassist Ben Zito and percussionist / vocalist Dan Rickabus. Utilizing three-part harmony, warm acoustic instruments, ethereal electric color, bounding rhythms and a deep love of literature, the eclectic four-piece creates a unique, dynamic sound that is equal parts haunting and uplifting. Their music traverses innovative territory, ranging from whisper-quiet ballads to big, danceable grooves.
Opening the August 14 show will be Pinedale's favorite alt-country group The Boom & the Bust featuring Michelle Humber and Nathan Curry.

Soundcheck was first conceived 8 years ago following PFAC's purchase of a new sound system via grant monies from the Wyoming Cultural Trust. The inagural event was a hit so it became an annual festival and then an annual music series now featuring 4 shows throughout the summer with attendance growing each year. So mark the dates on the calendar, dust off your cooler and camp chairs and come listen to some great music all summer long in Pinedale!
