Get ready to rock ‘n’ roll at the July 27th Alive After 5 at Tiny’s Tavern.

Alive After 5, Thurs. July 27, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Location: Tiny’s Tavern (323 N. 24th St.)
Band: Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts

Tiny’s Tavern, located at 323 N. 24th St., celebrated their 30th Anniversary earlier this year. In March, their team led our Downtown St. Patrick’s Day parade as Grand Marshal with an impressive 30 foot tall float of a schooner glass of their locally famous Orange Crush drink. The float, made by their team using tens of thousands of napkins, was named as the parade’s 2023 Best Overall Entry. .

Now that summer is in full swing, Tiny’s Tavern is ready to host the next Alive After 5 concert on Thursday, July 27th, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm on N. 24th St. between 3rd and 4th Ave N. Tiny’s team will undoubtedly be serving their Orange Crush drinks along with other beverages all while Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts, Colorado’s Country Music Hall of Fame 2019 Band of the Year, is on stage getting the whole crowd rocking. 

“Tiny’s has been hosting an Alive After 5 concert for almost the entirety of the summer music series’ existence. Their 2019 Alive After 5 with Arterial Drive held the attendance record until just two weeks ago. The community knows that the Tiny’s Alive After 5 is a fun one and they show up no matter the forecast.” 

Lindsay Richardson, Community Engagement & Events Director
