The Lagoon Summer Concert Series, one of Northern Colorado’s favorite family-friendly concert series, has returned to the west lawn of the Colorado State University Lory Student Center. Owned and produced by the Mantooth Company for the past 25 years, this popular summer tradition brings together friends and families (who pack picnic suppers or patronize onsite food trucks) on Wednesday nights from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. through July 27.

For its third week, the Lagoon Concert Series welcomes Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts to the stage on Wednesday, June 29. Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts is a four-piece touring band that shares male and female leads in a mix of old school country and rock n’ roll. Influenced by the songs and personalities of legends like Waylon and Willie, they drive their sound with blazing guitars and a rock n’ roll attitude. The band earned 2021 Female Vocalist of the Year and 2019 Band of the Year from the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame.
