The New Mastersounds formed in Leeds UK in 1999 and cut their teeth as the resident live band at a hip dance club, playing every Friday and Saturday night for nearly two years.
A rough 8-track recording of an early rehearsal got into the hands of some London DJs, and was released soon after on two limited-edition 7" singles. Invitations to play club gigs in London soon followed, and before long the band had established a reputation around UK and Europe as forerunners of the deep funk revival scene. Fast-forward to 2004: having experimented with various line-ups and recorded 2 albums, the original 4-piece band was invited to Chicago to open for the Greyboy All Stars at the House of Blues.Feb 5Red Butte Garden Greenhouse Tour

Scott H. Biram isn't a one-man band. He is the one-man band Quoth he: "My music is the bastard child of Punk, Blues, Country, Hillbilly, Bluegrass, Chain Gang, Metal, and Classic Rock." But don't let that fool you. Two-man bands like the Black Keys have made a lot of noise in the past few years, but Biram's got twice the cri de couer with half the personnel. He fearlessly preachs his gospel of blues, punk, country, metal and psychobilly to his congregation of metalheads,barflies, college professors and regular dudes via a pulpit that is just a stack of amps, a '59 hollow body Gibson and a stomp board. The Clash did Combat Rock, Biram traffics in Combat Blues. Don't be fooled by the whiskey and chicken antics, SHB has become a pre-eminent bluesman for the 21st century; when he gets locked in, when that groove is hooked, there are few better pure country blues artists out there. It's alternately hypnotic and harrowing.Feb 10Sleater-Kinney

Starring Malcolm Jamal-Warner, of The Cosby Show fame, and featuring music by the Ron McCurdy Quartet, this powerful music and spoken word performance evokes a pivotal moment in our cultural history.Feb 12Monika Jalili: Persian Songs of Love and Hope
For a talented group of Iranian poets and composers enjoying fame, the Iranian revolution of 1979 extinguished hopes, dreams and careers.
Since a serendipitous introduction in 2003, Monika Jalili has worked tirelessly to revive the touching works of these Iranian artists, some of whom are no longer with us, and most of whom have lived the past 30 years unable to express themselves as they once could. It is their songs that Monika sings with passion, appreciation, and love.
Monika Jalili brings to life the rich history of Iranian culture through its music and poetry. Her entrancing selection of songs spans time and place; traditional Persian folk favorites stand alongside love songs from the 1940s to 1970s, a time of great cultural change in Iran. These are songs of love, hope and peace, and to this day, are still prohibited from being performed in Iran. The songs are performed in their original languages of Persian, Azeri, and various dialects. Using traditional and non-traditional instruments, her ensemble of musicians combine their influences to present original interpretations of this music. In a spirit of exploration, Monika aspires to create understanding through an appreciation of the beauty of Iranian culture.
Monika she has performed around the world with her ensemble in cities as far-flung as Paris, London, Budapest, Copenhagen and Dubai, and has toured extensively throughout the US and Canada, appearing at venues including The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC), Place des Arts (Montreal), Yoshi's (San Francisco), Freer and Sackler Galleries at the Smithsonian (Washington, DC), Lincoln Center (NYC), Old Town School of Folk Music (Chicago), Le Poisson Rouge (NYC), Libby Gardner Hall (Salt Lake City), The United States Naval Academy (Annapolis, MD), Maison des Cultures du Monde (Paris), Isabel Bader Theatre (Toronto), Gallivan Center (Salt Lake City), Boston University College of Fine Arts (MA), the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (NYC), The University of Pennsylvania Middle East Center (PA), Union Chapel (London, UK), Boston University College of Fine Arts and many others.Feb 13Mating Dances and Wild Romances

*This is a 21 and older venue*
Leftover Salmon returns to Park City Live for a special Valentine's day performance with special guests, Hot Buttered Rum!!
Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Formed in Boulder at the end of 1989, the Colorado slamgras pioneers took their form of aggressive bluegrass to rock and roll bars at a time when it wasn't so common, helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jamgrass genre. Today, Leftover Salmon continues to grace the stages of venues across the United States, leaving a constant growth of their unique sound with their continuous touring.
The group currently consists of Vince Herman, Drew Emmitt, Andy Thorn, Greg Garrison, Alwyn Robinson and Bill Payne. Even though the line-up has changed over the years, the strong relationship between the co-founders has kept the rustic, original sound of the band intact. With their popular albums such as "Aquatic Hitchhiker" and "High Country", there is no wonder why Leftover Salmon is so widely loved and listened to. Their 2015 Winter Tour will take them through the Mountain West region, with a stop in our very own mountain town of Park City.Feb 6 - Feb 15Swan Lake
Adam Sklute’s critically acclaimed 2010 production makes it’s triumphant return to the Utah stage. A true test of a ballet company’s artistic depth, Swan Lake is the story of a sad prince, an evil sorcerer and a beautiful woman turned swan. With heart-wrenching and glorious music by Tchaikovsky, this ballet is a feast for the senses and a must-see whether you are an aficionado or a newcomer to ballet.Feb 14 - Feb 152015 Banff Mountain Film Festival
See some of the best films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival at Peery's Egyptian Theater.Feb 15An Evening with Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Buttered Rum lives for songs. Songs to sing in the shower. Songs to crank through your earbuds at the DMV. Songs to name your babies after, and then make more babies to. The band's three songwriters, Aaron Redner, Nat Keefe and Erik Yates, spin tales about the good times, the bad times, and the roads in between, and belt them from the heart in three-part harmony. Bryan Horne's athletic standup bass and Lucas Carlton's tasteful percussion combine with the acoustic instruments to create what is California's own acoustic music.Feb 17Hozier
