Rock and Roll legend Eddie Money dusted off his boots to entertain at the Grizzly Rose Saloon and Dance Emporium in Denver
Even though the Grizzly Rose is one of the last honky tonks in the world and is known for bringing the most prestigious names in the country music to Denver, on Wednesday night, there was more than square dancing to be had. The crowd was filled with music lovers, young and old, and many cowboy boots were tapping to classic rock beats.
Eddie Money, a singer/songwriter/saxophonist that found success in the '70s and '80s was the main headliner. He took the stage at the Grizzly Rose and rocked the house for over two hours. He first walked on the stage wearing a Santa outfit and wished everyone happy holidays. Following that, he played a continuous string of hits including “Baby Hold On," “Two Tickets to Paradise," “Think I’m in Love," “Can’t Hold Back," and “Take Me Home Tonight.” His finale was none other than “Shake It." After he completed his set, he stayed late to greet guests and sign autographs.
The two opening bands Total Recall and Five 13 were absolutely fantastic and warmed up the crowd of about 500 people. Classic rock filled the air for hours and the patrons entertained themselves in unique honky tonk style with mechanical bull riding and eating grub from the canteen.
