Ben Harper, Gov't Mule headline Spring Back to Vail

By Tom Boyd

April 3, 2008 —  If I was going to plunk down three quarters of a million dollars, Iíd probably plunk it down in much the same way as Vail does: by bringing Ben Harper and Govít Mule to town for a massive spring concert.

No offense to Kid Rock or Snoop Dogg, but these icons from Vailís past concert don't exactly send me sprinting to the front row.

I guess my issue is that Iím a sucker for people who sing, and furthermore hit their notes Ė which neither Rock or Dog can do at a live show (itís arguable that Rock and Dogg donít actually try to hit notes, which gives them a sort of hall pass on this one, I guess).

Harper and the boys from GM, on the other hand, are bona fide musical talent. If theyíd have been around for the Vail Jam at the Marriot the other night, we couldíve shown Ďem that Vail is loaded with musical talent even when VR isnít dropping $750,000 on bringing big acts to town.

Anyway, beyond the big musical acts, weíve also got the Vail Film Fest and the Taste of Vail under way. Then the Pond Skimming Championships. Basically itís a whirlwind of events from now till the mountain closes April 13 Ė and Spring Back to Vail is leading the charge.

But why are you wasting precious mental energy reading about this when you can just kick back and listen to Jens Werner lay it down for ya? Hmmmm. Better just double-click that play button below and see what olí Werner has to say:
