The Fever highly recommends the Blackstone Rivers Ranch! Gorgeous Colorado setting! Our clients love how flexible they are and all of the options they offer. We love working with the staff, they're very friendly and accommodating and great partners in timeline management. The venue itself pretty awesome from a band's perspective! Easy access, direct load-in for our gear, plenty of power for a full band, the tent is huge and perfect for having dinner & dancing all together. The ceremony site is right there and it's gorgeous. Ceremony site has power for musicians, if needed, and iPod hookup- everything is right there and ready to go. The staff is eager to assist. They have no early cut off time for music, and a great flow overall. We can't wait to come back and play our next event.
A beautiful mountain venue with cozy quarters for the bridal party to prepare for the ceremony and a private room upstairs for the newlyweds to enjoy their first meal together in privacy. Luxuries such as a fire pit, reclaimed wood tables, and a creek running through the properties are just a few wonderful things about Blackstone Rivers Ranch. The staff is always attentive, helpful, and friendly. We enjoyed working here greatly and look forward to the next time we can make a presence here.
