Red Rocks 8 o'Clock Howl This Wednesday!

The Red Rocks 8 o’clock Howl opens the iconic venues’ 80th anniversary, not with platinum-selling acts, but those who have kept the music playing during the Covid-19 pandemic from their front porches, churches, yards and hospitals.

Among the performers:

· The police and firefighters of the Emerald Society Bagpipers who played nightly in communities across Colorado

· Intensive Care Unit nurse Emily Worthem who sang for patients at UC Health

· Dove Award-winning vocalist JoFoKe, trumpeter Shane Endsley and pianist Adam Waite performed gospel and jazz online

· The nationally-ranked Longmont High School drumline competed nationally – but online

· Special remarks from Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock

· Additional artists to be announced

Emceed by KBCO’s Bret Saunders, the event also includes a special 8 o’clock Howl – led by the Denver couple who moved a trend into global consciousness with a Facebook group of more than 600,000 from 100 countries, all symbolically thanking front line workers by howling each night during the pandemic.

It’s an emotional first night back from a pandemic that has touched audiences and those associated with the concert industry, and a fitting way for Red Rocks to celebrate those who have lifted spirits through their personal passions for music.
