Christine Alice & the Canyon Echoes
Christine is our break-out performer last season and quickly became a Lagoon staple! A Fort Collins native, her music has been critically acclaimed by both local musicians and professionals throughout the country. She has killer vocals that will convince you she's an angel, but on the flip of a note, she can bring the fiery depths from below. The breadth of her music crosses all types of genres from pop, country, alternative, to lo-fi and more. We think she offers something for everyone.

Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts
Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts are a 4-piece touring band that shares male and female leads in a mix of old school country and rock n’ roll. Call it western outlaw, modern outlaw country, or just plain outlaw, Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts bring forth new energy to fans who love the heroes and outlaws of old. 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 pays respect to classic styles, but anyone can tell from their overdriven sound that they’re far from traditionalists. Recommended for lovers of both classic country and 70s rock n’ roll.
