Richie Furay, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame; Buffalo Springfield; Poco; Hillman, Souther, Furay Band: “I have played the Tri-Lakes Center For The Arts twice and am looking forward to my next visit in September of 2022. There are so many things I could say about Michael, his wife debi, and the Tri-Lakes crew but the fact that I’m going back for my third time should say enough. Everything is First Class. I’ve been there with a full band and as an acoustic trio; the room’s dynamics accommodate whatever sound the guest brings. There’s a special intimacy that comes with this venue; the lighting and renovated sound system are state of the art. If you like a small, intimate concert experience, you know – up close and personal – well, it’s right there in Palmer Lake and the Tri-Lakes Center For the Arts has exactly what you’re looking for.”

Suzy Bogguss, Country Music Star: “I am very fortunate to have worked with Dr. Michael Maddox at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Palmer Lake, CO. Michael is a very welcoming host as well as an extremely professional and capable promoter. It’s always a pleasure to discover a gem like the TLCA, and even more so when the promoter makes the show easy and fun. It’s particularly gratifying to work with promoters who take such a personal interest in their audience, and who follow through to sell the tickets! I look forward to working with Michael again. To others considering working at the TLCA, or with Michael at any other venue, I would give my strongest endorsement.”

Dion Pride, Country Music Star: “I’ve taken a moment to express the sheer delight in my experience at the Tri-Lakes Center for The Arts. First of all, what a GREAT Friend to have in the music business! Dr. Michael Maddox! He knows his music and is PASSIONATE about the arts as a whole. He understands the arts from both sides. As a participant and a facilitator. Which is EXACTLY why performing at the Tri-Lakes Center for The Arts was such a pleasurable experience. The intimacy is palpable. It truly makes the experience reciprocal! Not to mention it is located in one of the most beautiful states in the U.S. Dr. Maddox has created an environment that feels like MTV’s famous UNPLUGGED series. I encourage you to see for yourself. Thank you, Dr. Michael Maddox!”

Phil Keaggy, Legendary Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter: “I have worked with Michael Maddox five different times when he promoted and hosted me as an artist at Tri-Lakes Center For The Arts near Colorado Springs, CO. His venue, sound and lights were quite professional and he gathered a very welcoming audience. He and his wife were extremely hospitable as well! I’m happy to have worked with Michael.”
