This is an INVITE-ONLY EVENT: the local community nominated heroes from which randomly selected winners will receive free concert passes.
COVID-19 has strained and tested many of us in unexpected ways. In our small mountain community, people have stepped up: with courage, kindness, steadfast reliability, creative thinking, humor, support for others, and countless other benevolent acts. We welcomed nominations that included:
- Approximately 50 words (up to 300 characters) on why this person is a hero.
- Contact info for the hero in case they win tickets (if you don’t have their phone or email, you can still nominate; we’ll contact you to reach out to them if they win).
- Winners will be notified Tuesday, August 4 and must respond within a limited time to claim their tickets.
NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. Nominations were due BEFORE 5:00 p.m MONDAY. AUGUST 3. A limited number of nominees will be randomly selected to attend this special free concert just for our local heroes. The socially-distanced Drive-in Concert will feature the JAY ROEMER BAND on SUNDAY, AUGUST 9 at 7:00 p.m. in the Strings Parking Lot in Steamboat Springs.
Because of social distancing guidelines, tickets to the concert are very limited so we aren’t able to honor all of our deserving heroes. If your hero is not selected or unable to attend the performance, Strings may still honor these heroes by sharing their stories with the community.
Jay Roemer Band
Jay Roemer is the face of original, acoustic Americana and bluegrass in the Colorado mountain town of Steamboat Springs. He can be found traveling throughout the state he calls home performing his own material with just a guitar and harmonica, or with the highly acclaimed Jay Roemer Band. Deeply focused on intriguing lyrics, along with some fancy guitar work, his songs continue to connect with all types of audiences.
