Music Scene: Sept. 28–Oct. 4
All The Pretty Horses, a rock and country group from Carbondale, is hanging out in Fruita this weekend and will perform twice on Saturday, Sept. 29.
The band’s first gig is part of the lineup of bands performing during the 98th annual Alpine Bank Fruita Fall Festival. Stop by Circle Park Stage at 4 p.m. Saturday for a preview, then head to the Hot Tomato, 124 N. Mulberry St., to catch the band’s show from 6–9 p.m. Saturday.
According to the band’s Facebook page, “All The Pretty Horses began with Olivia Pevec, Mike Spring, Mateo Sandate and Bob Dylan. It turned a bit country because Olivia’s voice got twangy doing ranch work, and the boys know great music when they hear it.”
“Soon Ashton Taufer, a Berklee man on bass, and Aaron Taylor, jazz drummer extraordinaire joined in for a show at Steve’s Guitars in Carbondale. A band was most certainly born,” the Facebook page explains.
The band says its influences include Elephant Revival, George Jones, Prince, Hayes Carril and Euforquestra.
Current band members are Pevec on vocals, Sandate on guitar, Taufer on bass, Taylor on drums, and Frank Martin juggling guitar/mandolin/lap steel and vocals.
The band has performed at Carbondale’s Mountain Fair, Potato Days, Glenwood Spring’s Summer Series of Music and Strawberry Days.
