Celebrate Mardi Gras with Telluride's Joint Point

Joint Point, Mardi Gras In Telluride, we save the parades and picnics for the Fourth of July. Locally Mardi Gras, March 8, is all about the music. Music and the traditional baubles and beads. (We love bling.) 

The music is thanks to the historic Sheridan Opera House, where local jam band, Joint Point, performs at a special Mardi Gras concert starting at 9 p.m.

Named after a ski run, Joint Point is a quintet with a grab-bag sound that includes rock, country, bluegrass, and reggae, all of which is known to morph in a heartbeat into an improvisational adventure in sound that includes covers from the repertoire of iconic jam bands such as String Cheese, Dead, Phish, and Panic.

The evening at the Opera House features the aforementioned, traditional purple, gold and green beads, plus glow sticks, a light show and drink specials at the Vaudeville Bar.

Tickets, $12, can be purchased online at sheridanoperahouse.com or directly from bandmember Jeff Haldeman.
