Shakedown Bar is a 198-person live music venue owned and operated by Vail Valley local, Scott Rednor. Scott toured the world paying guitar with bands like Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews, Lenny Kravitz and many more for 15 years before landing at the Red Lion with Phil Long in 2009. His love for the Vail Valley led him to settle down and start a family while still expanding his musical horizons.
Shakedown Bar is dedicated to delivering a musical experience that you won’t soon forget, featuring our incredible roster of musicians that make up the Shakedown Family Band. Band members include some of the best in the country from groups like JJ Grey & Mofro, Circles Around the Sun, Dopapod, Analog Son, Big Gigantic, John Brown’s Body, Coral Creek and more! You may also catch artists you’ve seen on a much bigger stage or a much bigger venue, that occasionally wander into a surprise set at Shakedown Bar.
Newly remodeled, Shakedown Bar features cutting edge sound and lighting system with full studio recording and streaming capabilities. Our friendly staff complete this unparalleled live music experience!
