Ranked as a "Must Visit Oktoberfest" by DRAFT magazine, Longmont Oktoberfest celebrates the summer's transition to fall on October 5th and 6th at Roosevelt Park. Pull out your lederhosen and dirndls, grab a pretzel or brat, and don’t forget a pint from your favorite Longmont breweries while we support Longmont charities. Prost!

All proceeds go to St. Vrain Football Club and Left Hand Brewing Foundation.

Friday Night Headliner:
JJ Grey & Mofro

From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless.

Friday Night:
The Hazel Miller Band

Hazel Miller is not just a great singer; "She is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought after performer in Colorado for the past 3 decades. Ms. Miller has performed for all the Denver major league sports teams. HMB has performed for 6 sitting governors and 6 mayors and 4 US presidents. The current Hazel Miller Band has been performing for 9 years all over Colorado and nationally. Ms. Miller and her band has just been voted "Best R&B" Band for 2017 in the Westword magazine.

Saturday Night:
Taylor Scott Band

Taylor Scott is an international touring guitarist and singer/songwriter based in Denver, Colorado. He has consistently toured all over the US, Canada, and Europe with both the Taylor Scott Band and trance-blues legend Otis Taylor. In 2015, he played alongside the likes of Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule) on Otis' critically acclaimed release, "Hey Joe Opus: Red Meat." The Taylor Scott Band, based in Denver, is an original rock & roll band heavily influenced by funk and soul music. 2018 will bring the release of a new album from the band featuring Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) as producer and guest appearances by Henry Garza (Los Lonely Boys) and others.
