About the Event
This 3 piece rock/funk/soul/reggae band began performing together in the Summer of 2023 at the Grand Mesa Arts Center's open mic night. After receiving rave reviews for their performances, they were invited to play at Applefest 2023 in Cedaredge, CO and have since then been devoted to inspiring their legions of followers to get down to classic songs.
Singer and guitarist Matt Grundstad (or Mr. G as his students know him) has recently moved from Denver to Cedaredge to run the music programs at CHS and CMS. That move being facilitated by his good friend and former touring bandmate Josten Foley (drums) from back in their College days, they enlisted the services of Dean Burbank to play Bass. Dean was a professional musician for many years before going into the medical profession, last working in Delta County. But this band has brought him out of that musical retirement. He is now the backbone of Delta County's premier live band.
The Western Slope Whistle Pigs love to play classic tunes. And with 60+ years of combined stage experience and touring between them, their enthusiasm onstage is infectious. With a deep love and appreciation for the types of music that are typically available to see live in their neck of the woods, the Whistle Pigs also like to throw in a few curveballs. With an ever changing, and seemingly endless list of songs in their repertoire, you will never know what to expect. But you can always expect to have a great time.
