Bio: Montanya Distillers is located on the main street in downtown Crested Butte, close to public transportation. The acoustics are great and the venue is modern, multilevel and seats about 60-75 people. Our venue is best for acts looking to do a Happy Hour or Apres Ski/Apres Adventure show from 6-9pm. We are best suited to acoustic groups of 1-4 musicians with their own sound, playing original music. We love a diverse range of music and really like to mix it up. We typically pay with cocktails, appetizers and 5-10% percent of the bar in cash (although it depends on the time of year, the size of the group, what sort of local following the group has, etc.) Our musicians do well on tips because we never charge a cover. We were named best Apres Adventure bar in Outside Magazine's Global Travel Awards in 2012. We love to host music and we don't mind if musicians double book a later show after they play at Montanya. We are also open to staying open later for the right AMAZING musicians or band (acoustic or electric, whatever) who wants to play for an upscale audience, perhaps with some salsa or partner dancing. Always worth asking!
