Welcome to the 2015 Territory Days celebration, hosted by Old Colorado City Associates, Ltd (OCCA), the merchant association for the West Side.  Here’s a bit of our history.

In 1859, the small settlement of El Dorado, located at the eastern entrance to the pass, that went thru the mountains to the west, was renamed Colorado City, by its founders, and became the first permanent town in the Pikes Peak region. Early settlers included farmers, ranchers, freighter and outfitters for the people who were rushing to the western minefields. By 1886, the Colorado Midland Railroad was one of the city’s largest employers, with headquarter offices, terminal, and repair yards located here.

A Glass Works was established in 1887, where bottles were made for Manitou Mineral Water, liquor, and wine, by Bohemian glass blowers. Anheuser Busch, Mayor Charles Stockbridge, and others, also bottled beer here at the turn of the century. When Gold was discovered in 1891 at Cripple Creek, prosperity came from the four gold ore reduction mills, operating in Colorado City. The town soon became more famous for its many Saloons and Brothels, while the hardworking residents were much more proud of their schools, The Carnegie Public Library, and the churches. As time went on, change was inevitable for Colorado City, and in 1917, it was annexed by Colorado Springs.

TODAY – With over 100 Fine Galleries, Specialty Shops, Boutiques, Museums, Restaurants, and services available, Historic Old Colorado City, has it all.  The tree lined streets beckon you to stroll and enjoy the largest concentration of independent retail establishments in Colorado Springs.  Enjoy turn of the century architecture and rich history from Colorado’s Gold Rush Days. Enjoy the fun this weekend, remember our fallen brethren, and please do come back to Old Colorado City often.  Shop, Dine, Discover – Historic Old Colorado City! To contact the OCCA please call (719) 577-4112


HISTORY

Territory Days began in 1975 as the “Rampart Range Sertoma Territory Days Parade and Buffalo Barbecue”. In 1976 the name was changed to Territory Days to commemorate “Colorado City” (now known as Old Colorado City) as the first capitol of the Colorado Territory in 1861. Territory Days began as a merchant organized barbecue and parade and has grown into a three-day street festival which now hosts 200 craft, commercial and food booths. Between 80,000 and 140,000 guests, (depending on the weather), enjoy this event every Memorial weekend.


FEATURES

The historic district on Colorado Avenue between 23rd Street and 27th Street will come alive with live music, food, fun and entertainment for the entire family. One of the state’s largest craft vendor fairs is highlighted with features including pony rides, kids play area, petting zoo, mechanical bull, Cowboy Church Service, toy train rides, gold panning, wild west gunfight re-enactments, live blacksmithing, period costumed characters, live birds of prey, native American dancers, quick draw competition, and two beer gardens with live music running all three days.

Memorial Day Observance

In observance of the “National Moment of Remembrance”, please join us in Bancroft Park on Monday, May 25th at 3 p.m. as we gather to remember our nation’s fallen Heroes, and pay respect to those who have sacrificed their Freedom and their Lives so that we may enjoy our own as citizens of the GREATEST Country in the World.

The Lost Trailers headline the TERRITORY DAYS / NASH Country
concert series on Monday afternoon – Memorial Day – in Bancroft Park.

The Lost Trailers The Lost Trailers is a country music project of songwriter/producer Stokes Nielson. Nielson’s first record using the name The Lost Trailers was an album entitled “The Story of the New Age Cowboy” which was discovered by Willie Nelson in the spring of 2000. Nelson was so impressed with the album that he invited The Lost Trailers to perform at his legendary 4th of July Picnic.

Using that show and others with Nelson as a launching pad, The Lost Trailers rose from a hard touring regional act to snagging 3 ACM Nominations and several Top 20 hits on country radio while opening for Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Jamey Johnson and many others.

Buoyed by Nielson’s songwriting, which was also being noticed by other artists- he was one of the few outside songwriters on Grammy Award recipient Zac Brown Band’s Double Platinum Album “The Foundation”- The Lost Trailers were recognized by Mediabase as the most played new country band of 2008. The Lost Trailers continued touring through 2010, first as opener for Tim McGraw’s attendance shattering tour with Lady Antebellum, then as a part of the Inaugural Country Throwdown Tour with Montgomery Gentry and Jamey Johnson.

In 2011, following the lead of artists like ZBB, The Lost Trailers began launching singles as an independent act, opting out of their deal with Sony Records Nashville. They were the only wholly independent act(no ties to major labels through promotion or distribution) in country music to field two Top 40 singles in 2012, the anthemic “Underdog” and the barn-burning “American Beauty”. In 2013, Nielson was tapped to produce music for the June Carter Cash biopic “Ring Of Fire”, starring Jewel. Nielson brought in TLT guitarist Charles Longoria, bassist Jimmy Lykens, and drummer Eric Flores to provide the soundtrack for all the June Carter Cash (as adult) and Johnny Cash recordings.


Catch Waterloo Revival on the main stage in Bancroft Park Sunday afternoon.

Waterloo Revival When WATERLOO REVIVAL’s Cody Cooper met his bandmate George Birge in middle school, he inspired his new friend to express himself through music — a path that drastically affected both their lives. “I’d sang in choir and stuff, but I’d never taken it any further,” George admits. “But by seventh grade I was hooked and Cody and I were writing songs together.”

The duo continued to play together through high school, but parted ways so the guys could pursue an education. Cody headed to the University of North Texas in Denton, while George stayed in their hometown of Austin to attend the University of Texas.

After graduation, George found work in Austin’s commercial real estate scene, while Cody had a full-time job in mortgages in Dallas. The pair, who’d remained close through college, would play together during Cody’s visits back home.

By 2012, their musical chemistry was undeniable and George made the hard sell, convincing Cody to leave his 9-to-5 and return home in order for them to focus all their energy into music. WATERLOO REVIVAL was soon born, taking its moniker from their beloved hometown. “Before it was Austin, our hometown was called Waterloo,” Cody explains. “Eventually, it was renamed to honor the ‘Father of Texas’ Stephen F. Austin.”

“It seems like Austin music has been contained to Austin and is not being pushed out,” George adds. “We wanted to be Waterloo Revival in order to bring Austin music back to the rest of the world.” People of the self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital of the World” agreed.

In 2013, the pair was able to raise the funds to record a five-song EP. “We played one show in Austin and had 200 friends show up,” George explains. “Fans were really supportive. We thought, ‘Okay, it seems like this is something people are really going to get behind.’ We started a campaign and were able to fund the entire project from fan contributions.”

Continuing that momentum, WATERLOO REVIVAL channeled their entrepreneurial musicianship into more writing sessions, commuting to Nashville over the next year to hone their craft and acquaint themselves with Music City. “Hit the Road,” a product from one of their first Nashville sessions, encompassed both Cody and George’s quest to spread Austin’s music scene across the country. It was only fitting that the two set out with this song to take the next step in their careers.

Through a chance connection, George arranged a meeting with Toby Keith’s manager, TK Kimbrell, who promptly signed the boys to TKO Artist Management after hearing “Hit the Road.” WATERLOO REVIVAL began sampling tunes during Nashville songwriter showcases, adopting Music City as their new home.

They soon caught the ear of Big Machine Label Group President and CEO Scott Borchetta and inked a deal with Big Machine Records a week later. “Hit the Road” is currently being introduced to Country radio and has received an overwhelming positive response from both programmers and critics.


Catch Mickey Guyton Monday on the main stage in Bancroft Park.
It’s all part of the Awesome NASH Country / Territory Days FREE Concert Series for 2015!

Mickey Guyton Born in Arlington, Texas, Mickey Guyton moved around the Lone Star state as her father’s engineering job took them to Waco, Tyler, Dallas and Fort Worth. Music was a constant in her nomadic life. She began singing gospel in church when she was only five and grew up listening to a variety of artists, including Dolly Parton, LeAnn Rimes, Whitney Houston and gospel innovators BeBe and CeCe Winans. “Those were huge influences,” she says, recalling a particularly pivotal moment. “I was at a Texas Rangers baseball game and LeAnn Rimes was singing the National Anthem. This was right when she came out with ‘Blue’. I was completely mesmerized.”

Mickey knew instantly what she wanted to do with her life, and although she possesses the kind of strong, evocative voice that could succeed in any genre, Country music is her passion. “Of all the music out there, Country is the most honest, the most genuine and speaks to my heart” she says.

Mickey moved to Los Angeles after high school to attend Santa Monica College. She worked long hours at two jobs, struggling to make ends meet, but held on to her dream of becoming a Country singer. A chance encounter turned everything around. A friend introduced her to producer Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, the Wallflowers) who was immediately impressed with Mickey. He connected her to Gary Borman and his partner Steve Moir, the company that built the careers of Faith Hill, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum from day one.  Mickey moved to Nashville in 2011 to pursue her dream and has embedded herself in the town’s songwriter community the last three years.

Also in 2011, Mickey signed to Capitol Records Nashville and made her first national television appearance on stage at the White House during an all-star concert that included James Taylor, Dierks Bentley, Kris Kristofferson, The Band Perry, Darius Rucker and Lyle Lovett. The show was captured by PBS and broadcast as part of their “In Performance at the White House” series. Mickey’s riveting rendition of Patsy Cline’s classic “Crazy” was one of the highlights of the night.

“When I sang for Gary and Steve, they saw potential in me,” explains Mickey.  “Now I have a record deal with Capitol Records, I’ve sung at the White House and I’m making an album. It’s very, very humbling because if you would have asked me a few years ago if I would have pictured myself being at this point, I probably would of laughed and said, ‘Yeah right!’ I’m very appreciative of it because I understand how hard it is for artists to get to this point. I feel extremely blessed.”

Mickey released an acoustic EP, Unbreakable, in conjunction with her iTunes Festival performance in Austin, TX last March.  She is currently putting the finishing touches on her debut album with producers Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban) and Dann Huff (Faith Hill, Keith Urban, The Band Perry).

Mickey’s debut single is the powerful “Better Than You Left Me” which she co-wrote with Jennifer Hanson, Jenn Schott and Nathan Chapman.  The single broke Country Aircheck history for the most one–week adds for a debut act’s first single.  Mickey has appeared on several Who To Watch for in 2015 lists including NPR, Billboard, Spotify, Yahoo! Music, Huffington Post, Mashable, Taste of Country and Nashville Lifestyles. She was also recently featured in the Wall Street Journal and “Better Than You Left Me” was USA Today’s Song Of The Week. On January 10, Mickey made her Grand Ole Opry debut at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  Her emotional and powerful performance brought the audience to their feet.


The members of the band Brulé regretfully announce that the band will not be performing at the 2015 TERRITORY DAYS festival – due to unforeseen circumstances beyond their control.  Brulé is looking forward to their return in 2016 and the band wishes everyone connected with and attending this years event all the very best for much fun, frolic and success.
