Beloved local singer/songwriter Bobby Mason presents the Aspen Family Reunion tomorrow night, October 18, at 8pm at the Wheeler Opera House. Mason has made his home in Aspen since 1969 and is still rocking at 70. He plans to perform songs in his catalog from as far back as 1964 and will be backed by a seven-man band plus backup singers. The Aspen Times dubbed Mason "the de facto musical mayor of Aspen," so you can expect this will be a great show! Tickets and additional information at www.aspenshowtix.com.
