The next several weeks will bring a ton of great Apres Ski music to Montanya Distillers' Tasting Room in Crested Butte. After you have sampled the incredible powder or partaken of a perfect backcountry day, come on over for a rum cocktail (hot, cold, strong, you name it, we make it!) and a bit of great music. You can have a listen at their website links below.

TONY ROSARIO December 31st from 5-9pm
"I've wandered a bit. My old guitar has been my constant companion and confidante for as long as I can remember. Old ghosts live inside her wooden shell and when the night is right she sings to me and whispers great tales of love and loss - of heroes and friends. Like a warm breeze I will roll your way from time to time with a new story from an old confidante. This train has no destination , it's just meant to roll." Combining folk, Americana and country with a rock and roll style and a slide guitar! American Songwriter Magazine calls him a "performer not to miss"!
