FestEVOL Concert Series
FestEVOL is back! Come to Okemo for a unique lifestyle experience combining mountain sports, live music, innovative natural brands and a sustainably focused “eco-village” on March 16, 2013. Previous headline bands have included O.A.R., Barenaked Ladies, and Guster!
For the first time in five years, the rock supergroup Yukon Kornelius will play the East Coast in a special one-night performance at Okemo Mountain Resort, Vermont on Saturday, March 16. The concert, which also includes O.A.R., is part of the third annual FestEVOL concert series.
Yukon Kornelius was founded in 2008 by Dave Matthews Band bassist Stefan Lessard, as well as Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies, Adam Gardner of Guster and drummer Eric Fawcett. Originating while the musicians were filming the Warren Miller sports movie, Children of Winter, their love for snowsports, charitable missions and music sealed the band’s creation. Soon after, news of the group grew in the music world; now when Yukon Kornelius plays, as many as 20 musicians and celebrities take the stage to perform together, resulting in a completely unique concert experience.
New confirmed guests scheduled to play at the Okemo show include:
• Rashawn Ross from Dave Matthews Band
• Warren DeMartini from RATT
• DJ Logic
• Jason Biggs – Actor/Cow Bell Player
• Sully Erna from Godsmack
Previously announced guests also playing with Yukon Kornelius:
• Dee Snider of Twisted Sister
• Marc Roberge and Jerry DePizzo of O.A.R.
• Brett Scallions of Fuel
• Brad Corrigan of Dispatch
Prior to Yukon Kornelius’ performance, O.A.R. will take the stage to open the evening. The band recently released their fifth live album and second live performance DVD, Live on Red Rocks, which was filmed and recorded at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater on July 15, 2012.
The concert will take place at the Ice House Arena, located at Jackson Gore. Concert only tickets are on sale now at YukonKornelius.com. Concert and lift ticket packages as well as lodging discounts are available for purchase at Okemo.com.
