History

Territory Days began in 1975 as the “Rampart Range Sertoma Territory Days Parade and Buffalo Barbecue”. In 1976 the name was changed to Territory Days to commemorate “Colorado City” (now known as Old Colorado City) as the first capitol of the Colorado Territory in 1861.

It began as a merchant organized barbecue & parade and has grown into a three-day street festival, which now hosts 200 food, craft, and commercial booths. Between 80,000 and 140,000 guests (depending on weather) enjoy this event every Memorial Day weekend.

Seth Ennis

TD17-ent_Page_1_Image_0001

Seth Ennis may have been raised a proud Georgia boy, but the young singer-songwriter is as worldly as the most seasoned traveler — and it shows in his eclectic brand of country music, a sound inspired by his hero Vince Gill, the pop-punk bands he followed each year on the Vans Warped Tour and smooth R&B stars like Usher.
Despite being just 23 years old, the multi-instrumentalist (he’s a natural-born drummer) has experienced a lot of life. Seth spent his formative years on a military base in Japan, cut his teeth as a touring musician while living in Raleigh and commuting to Nashville, and has now put down roots in Music City, where through perseverance and a dedication to his craft he landed a record deal with Sony Music Nashville.
For his debut single “Woke Up in Nashville,” Seth wrote with tunesmiths David Hodges and Blair Daly, creating an autobiographical account of his journey to Music City to pursue his dream as a singer-songwriter.
Fittingly, the song begins with Seth loading up his father’s truck and driving north from Georgia. In the studio, Seth played every instrument on “Woke Up in Nashville,” from guitars and bass to drums and piano. He even sang his own background vocals.
“Country is how I was raised. Its stories are about me,” he says. “But Nashville is also a melting pot right now, so I’m thinking huge: What can I do to play internationally? How can I have my songs heard globally? It’s about dreaming big.”
Seth Ennis headlines the NASH FM Memorial Day show on Monday at 12:30 p.m. in Bancroft Park.

Wesley Michael Hayes

TD17-ent_Page_1_Image_0003

Wesley Michael Hayes grew up a country boy with a passion for sports and music. His first single, “Love In Pictures,” hit the Texas charts spending ten weeks there and his second release, Rebel Heart, also soon followed in appearing on the charts as well. Hayes is a self-described “underdog who loves going against the grain and doing things that others are afraid to do.” “My mom’s people were bootleggers and outlaws who would play music on the porch and such after some shine runnin’. That’s where the music talent comes from,” he said. “I was given a ’71 Alvarez guitar by my Uncle Harley at one point and my love for playing grew from there.”
As life on the road beckoned and opportunity came knocking, Hayes began playing in Branson, Missouri with the Bluegrass band, Goldwing Express, and taking gigs that would further his career. Upon releasing his first CD, YESTERDAY, he began honing his craft and writing each song to be “something unique in and of itself. ”With the uncanny ability to tell stories from so many life experiences, Hayes’ talent for songwriting had no limits.
Away from music, Hayes is a history teacher and a coach at a high school. He and his wife, Brandy, are the proud parents of a 21-year old son and a 14-year-old daughter. With the full support of his family behind him, Hayes honesty and genuine nature are transparent in his ability to tell a story.
Wesley Michael Hayes closes the festival Memorial Day at 3:00 p.m. in the OK Corral Beer Garden.

6035

TD17-ent_Page_1_Image_0004

6035 (sixty thirty-five) which takes its name from the official COS elevation is a rock classics tribute band that takes pride in playing songs that sound just like the originals -- a tight mix of music from Led Zeppelin to Billy Joel and Journey to the Foo Fighters. Their shows feature songs everyone knows the words to -- from groovy hippies to alternative hipsters. The unbridled rock action is created by dual guitarists Dave Turnupseed and Jason Hepner, who aren’t afraid of a little old school guitar distortion. Anthony Lopez lays a deep rhythmic bass line, joined by Rick Hilyard on drums–who flawlessly provides the weight needed to keep it all rolling. Add the astonishing versatility of Fritz Genato’s voice, which ranges from a mellow croon to the raw power of a hard core head banger, and the energy is irresistible--everyone has to dance!
Rip it up with 6035 starting at 3:00 on Saturday in the OK Corral Saloon.

Established in 2014, Denver band “One Way Ride” doesn’t just get your toes tapping—this band gets you moaning aloud. Blending the yearning soul of Otis Redding, the railroad blues of Doc Watson, the plugged-in grit of Alice in Chains, and the cowboy harmonies of Bonnie Raitt and John Prine—One Way Ride is a distinctly Denver take on rock’n’roll. With the release of their debut album Put Me On, One Way Ride has evolved from an acoustic duo to a fuller rock’n’roll quintet. The album is both grinding and greasy with all original material, three-part harmonies, Green-Light Girl guitar riffs, splashy drums, wailing harmonica, earthy organ, intimate upright bass on the ballads, and an electric bass foundation that drives the rock forward. The music takes you for a ride and is over too soon.
