The Vail Valley Foundation today announced the 2010-2011 line-up for the 12th annual Bud Light Street Beat free concert series held in Vail. The series is marked by a new day and showtime as the concerts move from Wednesdays at 6pm to Thursdays at 6:30pm in the streets of Vail. The Emmitt Nershi Band will kick off the concert series on Thursday, December 16 at 6:30pm at Checkpoint Charlie.

Jam band legends Drew Emmitt (from Leftover Salmon) and Bill Nershi (from String Cheese Incident) bring their combined talents and years of experience together on stage to create a sound that has music fans of all genres clamoring. The duo shares a commitment to keeping their music human-scaled and honest although both have spent years filling stadiums around the country with their respective bands.

In addition to free music, Vail Valley locals will have the opportunity to register at each Bud Light Street Beat concert to win the Volvo Grand Prize, a 2011 Volvo c30T5, given away at the final show of the season on April 21, 2011. All concerts are held at one of three venues in Vail (Checkpoint Charlie, The Arrabelle at Vail Square or in Golden Peak), so check the location weekly.
