Dazed & defrosted plus Killington Resort’s passholder appreciation day fun

Saturday, April 20 at  11 a.m.—KILLINGTON—Killington Resort’s  passholder appreciation day, which features a free BBQ lunch at K-1, will happen in conjunction with Dazed & Defrosted. Beast 365, Winter 23/24, and Midweek passholders will be eligible to receive the free lunch after presenting their pass to a guest services member.

The resort will also be taking their annual photo with all the members of the prestigious 100 Day Club at 1 p.m. near the  outdoor stage. Additionally, season passholders should stick around after lunch, as everyone who receives a free lunch will also be entered into a free raffle, the drawing for which will take place at 3:15 p.m. by the stage.

Opening act: SixFoxWhiskey

“We’ll play for free, we’ll play if no one’s listening, we just want to play,” says SixFoxWhiskey’s drummer, Tyler Davis.

Thankfully for SixFoxWhiskey, people are listening, and it is their unique intersection of jazz, jam, funk, and rock that has propelled them into becoming one of the fastest growing bands in New England.

Killington Resort will hold  passholder appreciation day and Dazed & Defrosted featuring a free BBQ lunch, live music by SixFoxWhiskey and headliner Mihali, and the annual 100 Day Club photo and raffle drawing on Saturday, April 20.

SixFoxWhiskey has held featured spots at major festivals like Levitate Music & Arts Festival, Rhode Island Music & Arts Festival, and Strangecreek, and they’ve performed at venues like the Stone Pony, Toad’s Place, and Brighton Music Hall. They’ve shared the stage with national touring acts like Ripe, The Magic Beans, Kitchen Dwellers, Kung Fu, and The Elovaters.

Zach Bloomstein of 37’ Productions aptly describes what makes the band stand out: “I’ve worked with a lot of bands and seen a lot of music, and these guys are doing something a little different. They’re being themselves, which is part of what makes them unique and special.” In the end, it’s feel-good music, think-hard music, get-down music, and their latest album, Naughty Air, is the manifestation of these sensations.

Headliner: Mihali

For Mihali, music behaves much like a living being. It grows, it matures, and it changes with a sentient consciousness and with whims of its own. The Vermont-based singer, songwriter, guitarist, and co-founder of rock outfit Twiddle closely follows reggae’s evolutionary ebbs and flows, and now funnels that enthusiasm into his new record, Effection [released July 22, 2022 on Ineffable Records]. The 10-track body of work intertwines reggae spirit, fluid soundscape architecture, and invigorating mantras meant to be chanted aloud in a packed venue.

“Effection,” a word meaning creation, is a fitting name for a project produced remotely with the help of longtime friend and collaborator Nathan Aurora. Working together from afar, the two traded demos, lyrics, bass lines, piano riffs, and guitar tracks back and forth to create the 10 songs that comprise the record.

When all is said and done, Mihali’s music continues to transform with him. “On this record, I tried not to go super heavy or deep on the emotional side of things. Instead, there is a lot of happiness and hope on “Effection.” I’m incredibly proud and excited to be releasing this music, and as always, evolving with it.”
