Staff report

The final Pajarito Mountain Beer and Band event of this season will be noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 16 at the Pajarito Mountain Ski Area.

The beer will be from Marble Brewery and the band will be the Craig Martin Experience.

The Craig Martin Experience (CME) came together in late 2010 as a loose assemblage of musicians interested in sharing ideas on jazz performance.

CME’s repertoire is an eclectic mix of about 60 tunes from the 1930s to the present.

“We like to play a mix of songs that the audience is familiar with, and tunes that are so swinging that they are accessible to everyone,” Martin said.

The band members are Craig Martin on tenor saxophone, Quinn Marksteiner on alto sax, Carl Hagelberg on trumpet, Mike Rogers on guitar, Aaron Anderson on keyboard, Rob Heineman on bass and John Frary on drums .

Atomic City Transit is providing bus service to Pajarito Mountain with the last bus going down at 5:20 p.m. Saturday so people can enjoy the show and get a ride home.
