Band encourages dreaming with upcoming show
The Aspen Meadow Band will open their 2019 season with a concert designed to spread good cheer.
The group's "Live to Dream" concert is scheduled for 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at 24232 S. Upper Highland Road. Though admission is free, attendees are encouraged to register for tickets at www.aspenmeadowband.com. There will be complimentary food available.
"It's our party concert," said Desirae Aamodt, a member of the band's public relations team. "It's an upbeat, positive celebration."
Founded in 2005, the Aspen Meadow Band strives to use music of any genre to uplift listeners.
There will be "lots of variety" in the musical lineup at the March 23 show, and selections will range from classic rock to songs from the movie "The Greatest Showman."
The music will be complemented with plenty of dancing.
"We encourage people to dance the whole time. There are seats, but we encourage people to push them back and make a dance floor," Aamodt said.
The band will host a variety of additional events throughout this coming year, including Tractors, Trucks and Teddy Bears, a benefit show for CASA of Clackamas County; National Night Out with the Oregon City Police Department; the Summer Finally Got Here concert and car show; a John Denver Tribute and their annual Christmas Festival of the Lights.
Through their events, members of the Aspen Meadow Band hope to encourage people to support one another.
"We're trying to let our guests enter into with us our dream to help people. If they can take that home and do good or be good, that's our goal," Aamodt said.
She noted that the group is hoping to continue spreading their message and mission. Each year, they fundraise for CASA of Clackamas County and several other organizations.
"Our goal is never to make money, but we hope to get bigger to do more good with our benefit concerts," she said.
