Live Music W/Emerald Green

Rockin ‘n’ Rollin down the mountain, alternative rock band Emerald Green is breaking through the doors at The Perk Downtown next weekend. Playing December 9th at 8 P.M, Emerald Green will be playing an original alt-rock set, looking to expand their front range presence, which, until recently, has mostly been near Woodland Park. Even though the group has recently started to play in the Springs area, each member has played in many parts of the US. “Personally, I’ve been performing for 35 years. Steve, our bassist and guitarist has performed about the same amount in the North Eastern United Sates. I've performed in Salt Lake City and cites throughout Wyoming. Mike, our drummer, has performed in the area of Woodland Park and the Florissant area for about 13 years,” said band front man, Rich Nielsen.

Nielsen said his personal influence has come from bands such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Styx, and Collective Soul. The band hopes to set a tone of fun for the audience during their two-hour set. “We hope they can identify with the message and feelings of our songs and hopefully rock out and dance to it too and maybe leave with a song stuck in their heads,” exclaimed Nielsen. Nielsen also said he is impressed with the local music scene in the Springs, and there seems to be a demand for live music. He also said the scene has been supportive as music and radio shows such as Our Town on KOVR have promoted the band and their music. To give Emerald Green a listen, check out the following links: .
