“While winter is definitely still upon us here in Vail, we’re looking forward to finishing the 50th anniversary ski and snowboard season with a bang, thanks to a fantastic entertainment lineup during Spring Back to Vail this year,” said Davy Ratchford, director of sales and marketing for Vail Mountain.

“The combination of O.A.R, Jimmy Cliff and Sublime with Rome will undoubtedly deliver a series of fun, high-energy shows for our guests.”

Jimmy Cliff

Short for Of a Revolution, O.A.R is an alternative rock band well-known for rocking the stage at their live performances and extensive summer touring. The five-member band, formed in 1996, found popularity on the college campus at Ohio State University and gained a following as a popular live act on other college campuses before gaining mainstream exposure and reaching the top of the Billboard charts over the course of their long career.

The jam band-influenced group has released seven studio albums, including their latest CD/DVD release Live on Red Rocks & King, and will take the stage at Spring Back to Vail on Friday, April 12 in Ford Park.

On Saturday, April 13, Sublime with Rome bringing a blend of reggae, ska, punk and surf-rock, will take the Spring Back to the Vail stage at Ford Park for another free show. The band is a collaboration between Eric Wilson of Sublime, celebrated drummer Josh Freese and lead vocalist and guitarist Rome Ramirez.

Grammy-winning musician, actor, singer, songwriter, producer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jimmy Cliff is also set to take the Spring Back to Vail stage with his reggae style on Sunday, April 14 – Vail Mountain’s closing day – at Solaris Plaza in Vail Village.
