The Backcountry Ballroom at Bolton Valley presents Steady Betty with Diggs

After the recent success of the Mid-Winter Funk featuring the Grippo Funk Band, Bolton Valley is proud to announce a second concert this spring. Steady Betty, with special guest Diggs, will perform live at the Backcountry Ballroom on Friday March 30. The Backcountry Ballroom is located on the main floor of the Sports Center and is an up and coming music venue. The ballroom is an intimate setting for a show. Being on site at Bolton Valley, the Backcountry Ballroom is walking distance to the lifts and the slopeside Inn at Bolton Valley. The location allows music lovers to easily mix skiing and snowboarding with a show. Since the Inn at Bolton Valley is next to the venue, concertgoers can stay up late, knowing their bed is only steps away. Want to grab a bite before the show?

Steady Betty

Steady Betty is an 8-piece "all-star…rocksteady band" (Seven Days). The band pays homage to the classic late-1960s sounds of Jamaica. Rocksteady is a danceable, soulful successor to ska, and the roots of the reggae genre. Steady Betty showcases Vermont-based lady musicians, including Miriam Bernardo (lead vocal), Linda Bassick (guitar, Mellow Yellow), Allison Frazier (bari sax, Shakedown), Margot Van Horne (trumpet), Erin Teodosio (trombone), (Zoe Harris (alto sax), Rachel Capobianco (vocals, drums). When the moons align, Kat Wright (KW & The Indomitable Soul Band) joins on vocals.

Steady Betty's Vermont shows have drawn dance-happy capacity crowds and enthusiasm from local press: “a stellar group of Vermont musicians rocksteady tunes” (Brent Hallenbeck, Burlington Free Press); “Steady Betty... are quickly rising among the ranks of my favorite local acts” (Dan Bolles, 7Days). 


Local Burlington group Diggs is fresh to the Vermont music scene, bringing a hip-hop/funk/rock attitude that's been long missed. Comprised of previous members from Navytrain (Burlington), Bodywash (Montreal), and various other projects; Diggs is ready to drop delicious beats. The 7 deep crew is comprised of Ash Diggs (MC), Dan Maurice (guitar/vocal), Deborah Kraft (trombone), Anna Kronk (trumpet), Michael Gordon (keys), Zeb Carney (bass), and Austin Pine (drums).
