Chalk Art Festival 6-1-2014 – Notes and Set List

Last week Zen Mustache played at the Denver Chalk Art Festival. We played this event last time it was held and this year was just a terrific as then. Couple things that stand out:

1. Trey, the event coordinator, was super-relaxed and easy to work with. Parking could have been a chore, but with Trey’s support we enjoyed a blissfully easy time managing vehicles.
2. Dano, the sound engineer, was the consummate professional to work with. From the moment we arrived on his stage, Dano made us feel valuable and respected, and he clearly had his system tightly dialed to serve the crowd and the performers.
3. This is a great festival! Loads of terrific street artwork to view, great vendors and interesting exhibits. After our set we toured the festival for awhile, taking in the sights and sounds on a brilliant and hot summer afternoon.
4. We had some visitors come out to see us who we didn’t expect to see. You know who you are – thank you for coming! It’s always wonderful to see your friendly faces lurking in the crowd.

Also wanted to make a quick note about the night before the festival. Our friends Clayton and Jenny got hitched out at Frog Belly Farm north of Boulder. These guys threw a heck of wedding! All outdoors, the ceremony in a field and the reception in an adjacent field. Dinner served by food truck and guests playing bean bag toss and other games. Bonfire, open bar, and the band played in the barn. Loads of fun and we wish Clayton and Jenny the very best – thank you for including us in your wedding festivities!
