Mishawaka Shed Reopens

The Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellevue, Colo., is back in business with a concert schedule that runs through September and new owner Dani Grant pledging to bring in world-class entertainment.

“We’re excited to launch Mishawaka 2.0, building on the great history of the venue and expanding its offering to the whole community,” Grant told the Coloradoan.

The 752-capacity shed, formerly owned by Robin Jones, has also undergone improvements to its restaurant/bar, dancehall and sound systems. A park-and-ride shuttle service for $5 round-trip will give patrons an alternative to looking for parking on Poudre Canyon Highway, according to the Coloradoan.

Jones put the venue up for sale in September after he was charged on suspicion of cultivation, possession and distribution of marijuana and alleged possession of Ecstasy. Details of the mid-December sale to Grant and her partners were not disclosed.

Concerts on the books starting mid-May include the three-day Waterfront Music Festival, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Leftover Salmon, Leo Kottke, Hot Tuna, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Keb’ Mo’, Robert Earl Keen, Punch Brothers and Sam Bush.
