Bonfire Brewing and Optimum Events will announce more details

of the two-day beer and music street party, slated for Friday, June 2 and

Saturday, June 3 in downtown Eagle at a Pre-Block Party Announcement Shindig

that gets underway at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 15 at Bonfire Brewing in

Eagle and features the Denver-based Robby Wicks Band. The third-annual

Block Party showcases main stage and side stage acts along with food vendors

and Bonfire Brewing craft beer releases each day. Pre-Block Party Shindig

attendees will be able to pre-purchase a two-day Block Party wristband with

a branded Block Party SiliPint for the June event at the discounted price of

$20 on Saturday. Admission to the Announcement Shindig is free.

The Block Party’s main stage headliners for Friday, June 2 are funk masters

Robert Randolph & The Family Band. Friday’s opening acts and Saturday’s full

lineup will feature well-known music that’s sure to please and will be

announced at the Shindig on April 15. The Bonfire Block Party admission is

$5 per day with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Eagle County nonprofit

partner Cycle Effect which hosts an onsite bike valet during the weekend’s

family-friendly event. Block Party SiliPints are priced at $15 and sold-out

in less than 90 minutes at the 2016 event.

Colorado’s Robby Wicks Band (RWB) produces soulful rock and is known for

intricate musicianship and camaraderie that results in well-crafted and

energetic live shows. RWB members Wicks (guitar, vocals) and Taylor Biskup

(guitar) have shared the stage with Vince Neil, Hot Buttered Rum, Seven Mary

Three, STS9 and Dilated Peoples among others.
