Music Scene: June 1–7
Western Colorado’s own Pineapple Crackers will open The Fruita Thursday Night Summer Concert Series at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 7, at the Fruita Civic Center park, 325 E. Aspen Ave.
Pineapple Crackers creates “a vibrant mixture of reggae, rock and pop,” according to the “About” link on the band’s Facebook page.
Hawaiian native Benson Broyles provides the strong reggae influence, and his deep roots in the island music culture paired with the rock background of the other band members “forges a unique sound,” the page notes.
