Oskar Blues Announces Lineup for 17th Annual CANiversary Celebration

September 17, 2019


Celebration to feature live music, tasty food and craft beer in a can at the beautiful Oak Room event space.

Longmont, Colo. (September 16, 2019) Oskar Blues Brewery celebrates their 17th CANiversary on Nov. 16 with live music at the Oak Room. The party marks 17 years since Oskar Blues became the first brewery to package craft beer in portable, crushable, infinitely recyclable cans – an innovation that started a revolution in craft canning. The party’s going down at the Oak Room in Longmont, with stellar live music starting at 6 p.m., tasty food from the Oskar Blues Boulder Taproom and an exclusive on-site merchandise sale.

Doors will open at 5 p.m., then Crick Wooder will warm up the crowd at 6 p.m. with a unique, Owsley-grade Grateful Dead Experience. The four-piece band has made a name for itself jamming on The Dead all along the Front Range.

From 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Papa Mali Duo With Bobby Vega will get the crowd moving with bass, guitar and vocals that push the minimalist possibilities of acoustic string music. The duo has a combined experience of over four decades of touring, recording and exploration of American roots, rock, folk, psychedelic blues, funk, jazz, gospel and world music.

Roosevelt Collier Band will headline the 17th CANiversary celebration, with a soul-shaking live performance from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Known as “The Dr.,” Roosevelt Collier cures what ails a crowd with sacred steel guitar sounds. Collier has performed alongside acts like the Allman Brothers, the Funky Meters, Los Lobos and the Del McCoury Band.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this stellar musical line-up in the intimate Oak Room concert venue – one of the best spots in Longmont to see live music. The 4,275 square foot space is attached to Oskar Blues Brewery on the Northwest side of the building and includes a beer bar where your favorite Oskar Blues beers will be served. Guests are offered a view into the barrel room, where rare and specialty Oskar Blues beers are aged. Click here to see more information about the Oak Room.
