Patti Fiasco Concert (Benefit for Downtown Fort Collins Business Association)

We are extremely excited to add Patti Fiasco to this year´s Rock Garden Concert lineup.  The concert is a benefit for Downtown Fort Collins Business Association and will aid in their mission to increase the vitality and prosperity of Downtown Fort Collins through programming and events. 50% of all ticket sales will be donated to Downtown Fort Collins Business Association, as well as all proceeds from beer and wine sales.

In addition to great music, the event features delicious food and drinks from local favorites. All of this will take place in our beautiful outdoor venue, appropriately dubbed “The Rock Garden.”

 

Artist Details:

Jet-fueled by powerhouse front woman Alysia Kraft, The Patti Fiasco rides the edge of emotional extreme, delivering a brash yet fiercely soulful brand of rock and roll with a heavy dose of rockabilly, blues, and ballad. At times raw and volatile, and at others, sweet and lilting, the band fuses a hard-rock swagger with the two-step of its Wyoming roots. It’s the attitude of Joan Jett with a Steve Earle twang, the soul and slide of Bonnie Raitt, Black-Keys-style dirty blues-rock, and the lyric edginess of Shovels and Rope.  Read More
