I don't think you will have a time finding a place to live UNLESS you have pets, 1 might be ok but pet friendly in GJ is VERY hard to find. GL!!!

oh, yes we have a beautiful new puppy golden retriever, so yes, having troubles

We actually just got our dates, we'll be there Tuesday through Thursday. Think I'm going to find a realtor to take us around see what neighborhoods are what. If anyone has a great one, I would love a name. Thanks everyone!

Speaking of hip, there's a new study out that names Denver as one of the nation's hipper big cities. Thread in the Denver forum.

Cosmic, sorry man, can't believe they overlooked Grand Junction. Again.

You guys are cracking me up! My husband and I refer to the Golden Corral as the Golden Feed bucket!

I guess since only country was mentioned about live music, GJ must be a 'one horse' kinda town.
Jazz - nothing
Rock - nothing
Ballroom - nothing

Ummmm, no. Somehow you missed post #49, amongst a couple others. Some of the concerts I've seen over the years in the Grand Junction area not country related would be:

Leon Russell, Association, Arlo Guthrie, John Sebastian (founding member of the Lovin' Spoonful), Primus, Chris Isaak, Poco, Ted Nugent, Alan Parsons Project, Dave Mason Band, James McMurty, Sonny Landreth (just the other day), Judy Collins, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John McCuen, Joe Cocker, Susan Tedeschi, Los Lonely Boys, Lucinda Williams, Robert Earl Keen, Chris Hillman (co-founder of 60's folk rock group, the Byrds), Leo Kottke, Emmy Lou Harris, Blues Traveler, Bob Dylan, Greg Brown Band, Gordon Lightfoot (twice in the last four years), Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ani DiFranco, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Sam Bush, and lots of other groups.

Though Country Jam gets a lot of print leading some people into thinking the Grand Junction area is a "one horse town", Rock Jam pulls in a similar crowd that Country Jam does, around 15 to 20,000 . This years lineup for Rock Jam includes Kiss, Motley Crue, Quiet Riot, and 3 Doors Down. Past acts in the classic rock category who have played at Rock Jam include ZZ Top, Heart, Sammy Hagar, Dokken, Chickenfoot, Kid Rock, Ratt, Huey Lewis/News, Uncle Cracker, Cheap Trick, Lynyrd Skynrd, Cinderella, REO Speedwagon, Alice Cooper, and a couple dozen other classic rock bands.
