Artist Details:

HONEYHONEY

The third full-length effort from L.A.-based duo HONEYHONEY3 is an album born from fascination with the sweet and the sleazy, light and dark, danger and magic. Working with Dave Cobb (the producer behind Jason Isbell’s Southeastern and Sturgill Simpson’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music), lead singer/banjo player/violinist Suzanne Santo and vocalist/guitarist Ben Jaffe twist their gritty, harmony-driven brand of Southern-flavored rock & roll through tales of lost souls, broken boys, girls with gold in their spit. Equal parts inward-looking and endlessly curious, the two songwriters also take a mirror to their own experience in lust and heartache and never shy away from revealing the messy truth. And whether they rattle or soothe or joyfully inspire, HONEYHONEY instill each song with a straight-from-the-gut honesty and elegance of storytelling that make both cathartic and electrifying.  Read More

Special Guests

We are not able to announce the supporting band at this time due to a conflicting show on their end.  We are very excited to have them on board and we will announce them just as soon as we are able.

Venue Details:

This summer marks the 4th season of Fort Collins Nursery’s Rock Garden Concert Series. For four epic nights, Fort Collins Nursery will transform from a retail space to a stunning and unique concert venue appropriately dubbed “The Rock Garden.” Audience members can relax under the evening sky, nestled along the banks of Dry Creek and the Cache la Poudre River, surrounded by beautiful plants, trees and wildlife. 

For each concert, we partner with a wonderful local non-profit organization. A portion of ticket sales plus all bar proceeds and live auction proceeds will benefit the organization. In addition to great music, each concert will feature a beer and wine tent, food trucks, and dog adoption event.  Click here to see photos from past shows

Benefit Details:

The concert is a fundraising event benefiting The Growing Project and funds raised will support their mission to promotes the value of a strong, diverse, and just local food system to all residents of Northern Colorado through direct agricultural experiences, education, and advocacy.  All proceeds from wine and beer sales go directly to The Growing Project.

Concert Details:

  • Headliner: HONEYHONEY
  • Support: TBA
  • Food: Schmickels Hot Dog Cart & Taquería Los Pepes
  • Drinks: Wine & Beer
  • Dog Adoption: Found Nation Animal Rescue
