Kenny Mehler Band to Perform at Jackson Gore Summer Music Series
Okemo Mountain Resort will host a free concert on August 22 featuring the Kenny Mehler Band as part of the Jackson Gore Summer Music Series presented by Vermont Properties and Development, Inc. Concerts are scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday evenings in the courtyard at the Jackson Gore Inn.
Kenny Mehler is a hard-working singer-songwriter from Hartford, Conn. Though far from Nashville, this up-and-coming alternative country act is reinventing the standard for good music by blending the smooth yet catchy sounds of some of Country’s most successful acts. Well-crafted songs, rich harmonies and undeniable hooks make the Kenny Mehler Band a favorite up and down the East Coast.
On Friday nights throughout the summer season, the lawn in the courtyard at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Inn is transformed into an outdoor concert venue featuring popular local and regional bands. Admission is free and the grounds open at 5 p.m. Families are welcome and attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets. In case of rain, the concerts will move indoors. Dining options include fresh-from-the-grill burgers, hot dogs, and other summertime favorites, plus beer and wine is available for purchase. Full-service dining with al fresco seating in the courtyard is offered at Jackson Gore’s Coleman Brook Tavern.
Following the Kenny Mehler Band on Aug. 15, the summer lineup for the Jackson Gore Summer Music Series presented by Vermont Properties and Development, Inc. concludes with 2Adam12 on Aug. 29.
Okemo’s Adventure Zone stays open late on Friday nights for concertgoers who like a little adventure with their music. Visitors especially enjoy The Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster and the Haulback Challenge Course. There’s trampoline bungee jumping, miniature golf, disc golf, a climbing pinnacle, zipline tours, Segway Personal Transport tours, and the Amp Energy Big Air Bag, Okemo’s Adventure Zone is open on weekends through June and daily in July and August. Each of Okemo’s Adventure Zone features is priced individually or visitors can purchase an Adventure Zone Day Pass wristband.
