Shakedown Bar is a 198-person capacity live music venue/bar, owned and operated by local family man, Scott Rednor. Scott toured around 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 here while still expanding his musical horizons far and wide. He is currently a member of Dean Ween Group, as well as Brothers Keeper, featuring members of John Oates’ Band.
Shakedown Bar is dedicated to delivering a musical experience that you won’t soon forget, primarily featuring house bands comprised of some of the nation’s finest musicians! These house bands regularly feature members of JJ Grey and Mofro, Circles Around The Sun, Dopapod, Analog Son, Big Gigantic, John Brown’s Body, Coral Creek, and more!
You may catch artists you have seen on a much bigger stage, in a much bigger venue, occasionally wandering into a surprise at Shakedown Bar that you never would have imagined seeing in such an intimate space.
Shakedown Bar features a custom-tuned Meyer Sound system operated with a Midas Pro2 C digital console. A full LED lighting system, rustic wood finishes, and friendly staff complete the world-class entertainment experience at Shakedown Bar!
