Thanks Black Rose!
A big BGAS thanks to the Black Rose Acoustic Society (BRAS) for supporting us from our beginnings.
The Black Rose presents acoustic concerts in the rustic Black Forest Community Club in nearby Black Forest, Colorado.
BRAS founder, Charlie Hall, has been especially helpful with encouragement and tips on how to proceed. His experience has been invaluable. Thanks, Charlie.
Also, thanks to Grant Grovenburg, the BRAS sound man, for his assistance in speccing the original sound system for us. Thanks also to Bob Lord, another BRAS sound man as we enter our 15th year in 2016, for his assistance in upgrading our sound system.
Vicki and Kirk Fraser and their daughter Maggie have moved to Omaha, NE. The Buffalo Grass Acoustic Society is a product of their commitment and vision along with that of Roger Carter and Scott Lawrence. Thanks to all of you for getting us started and keeping us going.
Black Rose continues to support the Buffalo Grass Acoustic Society with technical, booking advice and promotion at their concerts.

The Buffalo Grass Acoustic Society (BGAS) was formed by folks in Peyton, Colorado. People in the neighborhood just wanted to make music. A few of us began meeting at Vicki and Kirk Fraser's home to play and sing. Word spread like wildfire. Soon the house was filled.
One night Roger Carter, leader of Prairie Wind, the house band at the Cowboy Church in Peyton, brought his band over. Talk about music! After that Roger arranged for us to meet at the Cowboy Church of Peyton so we could accommodate everyone who wanted to come. The Buffalo Grass Acoustic Society was born. Our first show was in November of 2002.
BGAS is a place for the community. We want families to come get to know their neighbors while enjoying the music. The atmosphere is so relaxed, you will just feel right at home.
The jam sessions go from 5:30 p.m. until show time and is very popular.
You are welcome to come listen even if you don't play. We break in time for you to grab a cup of coffee and a pastry before the show starts at 7:00.
