Limelight Lodge to continue free off-season music
Even though skiers have largely left the slopes, the Limelight Lodge plans to keep Aspen’s après-scene going strong with free live music on Friday and Saturday nights from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
John Sommers and April Payne of the popular Defiance String Band will be performing in the Limelight Lounge on Fridays. On Saturdays, Rich Ganson will be taking the stage. The off-season music will run from April 15 to June 11.
“With the debut of Live Music Nights this winter, the Limelight Lodge really went back to its roots as a premier live music destination,” said General Manager Richard Stettner. “We didn’t want the music to die just because it’s off season. The Limelight is a community gathering space year-round.”
Opened as a dinner theatre and three-room lodge in the 1950s, the Limelight Lodge, then called the Ski & Spur, was later purchased by musician Glenn Yarbrough. He renamed it the “Limelite Lodge” after his folk band, the Limeliters, which called its stage home. During those years, the lodge became a haven for performers and musicians attracting acts like Judy Collins, the Smothers Brothers and John Denver. With the addition of music at the newly-renovated Limelight Lodge, the property has once again regained notoriety in town as a place to have a beer, hear a tune and visit with friends.
Also new at the property this year is the addition of light Italian fare in the Limelight Lounge. Hand-tossed pizzas and gourmet salads, as well as a full bar, are available.
Off season at the Limelight also means Local’s Specials for Colorado residents. The Limelight is offering a $105 per night room rate and a $140 per night rate including “dinner and a movie.” Dinner includes one hand-tossed pizza and two salads, and the movie is an in-room feature. This offer does not include tax or gratuity and is good through June 15.
