September 14, 2020 – Golden, Colorado.
The Buffalo Rose announces the launch of a reformatted live event program branded “Live@TheRose”. As part of this new live performance offering, the Buffalo Rose has hired Marco Simpson as a full-time in-house talent buyer and venue production manager to fill a newly created position as Director of Artist Relations.
“We’re beyond fortunate to have Marco join our team. Marco has been in the music business for decades as a talented touring musician, sound engineer and member of several prominent music industry trade associations. I actually think Marco was around when music was first invented!” joked Buffalo Rose owner Chris Cone.
Live@TheRose will feature a wide variety of musical genres in addition to comedy, dinner shows, inspirational
speakers and other live performances hosted in its recently remodeled event venue located in historic downtown
Golden, Colorado. Live@TheRose will host nationally-known touring artists along with talented regional acts and
will introduce several new recurring music series in 2021.
“I’m super excited to take this on at this point in my career. The Rose has a unique position in the Colorado market
as a mid-sized, independent venue with state-of-the art audio/visual equipment and naturally beautiful acoustics,
complimented by a world class dining & beverage experience,” Marco commented. “This venue can easily host
intimate shows with as few as 50 people up to large rock concerts with over 600 attendees—very few facilities
combine this level of refinement with this type of production capability and flexibility.”
Chris commented further: “I’m very proud of the new Buffalo Rose. It is a truly unique facility embodying a
fascinating Colorado history dating back to the 1800s presented alongside all of the creature comforts of a modern
building. It might seem a little odd to be announcing a new live event program in the midst of the COVID pandemic,
but I actually feel that the timing is ideal. We are working hard right now to optimally position ourselves to rebuild
our live event programming under the assumption that the infection rates continue their recent downward trend
and anticipating that the State will increase capacity limitations as public health concerns begin to subside.”
