You don’t want to miss Halibut Cove Live 2014

Quiet Place Lodge presents Halibut Cove Live 2014; Intimate Gatherings, World-Class Musicians, Healthy Gourmet Cuisine!

Halibut Cove 2

In the quaint yet strikingly-beautiful community of Halibut Cove, Alaska (which is located across the bay from Homer in Kachemak Bay State Park) you can relax under a canopy on the deck and enjoy gourmet, healthy cuisine while you listen to performances from the floating amphitheater. If you’ve never been-to or heard-of Halibut Cove, please let us embellish a little on our extreme love and obsession for this place. Halibut Cove is a little jewel tucked away in Alaska’s first state park, Kachemak Bay State Park. The park area is a total of 400,000 acres of mountains, glaciers, forests, coastline and ocean. Visitors frequently observe sea otters, harbor seals, porpoise, and a variety of whale species. Aside from the wildlife, to-die-for views and endless outdoor activities, we always find ourselves most impressed with the residents of this great community. The laid-back vibe of the locals mixed with the friendly, warm, and genuinely inviting hospitality gives the community of Halibut Cove a 5 Star (+++) for us every time!

Halibut Cove Live presents three live music events this summer at Quiet Place Lodge. Below we will explain to you a little bit about just how fun, special, and truly awesome each of these great performers are in their own brilliant and unique ways.

Saturday, July 12th (3 pm to 7:30 pm) – Todd Grebe and Cold Country

Cold Country started in Alaska with the idea to play original honkytonk roots music that ranges from bluegrass to blues and beyond. Todd Grebe and Cold Country now reside in Nashville,TN, but continue to play venues in Alaska. The band features the red hot fiddle action of Angela Oudean, the raging mandolin prowess of David long, the rock steady all night long bass thumping of Mike Bub, and the rowdy vocal stylings of Todd Grebe.
