We admit the headline gave us pause, too. No, they aren’t throwing large-mouth fish. The Rocky Mountain Bass Slam on Sunday, May 15, celebrates the wide range of musical options that bass players can provide. Musical performances start at 1:30 p.m. and continue to 6 p.m. at The Oriental Theater. Headliners for 2016 include the legendary Chuck Rainey and SuperFunk powerhouse Doug Johns. The Rocky Mountain Bass Slam also features home-grown talent with Colorado’s own bass performers. Tickets are $10 in advance ($13 the day of show). That’s a little money for a whole lot of music. Proceeds go to the Blue Star Connection, a charity that pits musical instruments into the hands of children with life-threatening illness. 4335 W. 44th Ave., Denver.
