Founded on the success of the Summer Concert Series last summer, Saddleback will host a Winter Concert Series. The venue is the fireplace room in the base lodge. When set up, 250 patrons can be comfortably seated. There is row seating up front and table seating towards the rear of the room. The setting has an intimate feel. Concerts begin at 8:00 PM, so the trick is going to be able to set the stage, prepare the sound system, clean the room and set the chairs & tables, all between the end of the ski day and concert time. I am sure that it will be an all hands chinese fire drill!

The first concert is January 1st. Performing will be Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys. Tickets are now available for $25 each. Other concerts are: Commader Cody January 16th; Jonathan Edward February 13th; The Subdudes March 13th; Pogey March 20th and The Derailers on March 27th. In addition to the concerts, we will have comedian Bob Marley perform at the base lodge Tuesday February 16th at 7:00 PM. Bob is sure to have the February vacationers in stitches that night. I hope that you will be able to join us for a concert and see what a great concert venue we have here at Saddleback.
