Town of Garden City
Town of Garden City
It was the mid 1930’s when prohibition ended. In June 1935, Greeley voters, by a majority of 356 votes, voted in the local option election to make Greeley “dry” and prohibit the sale, manufacture for sale, transportation for sale or possession for sale of liquor in the city limits of Greeley. Two Greeley liquor stores were ordered closed by the Chief of Police the morning following the election.

GardenCityTownHall_newShortly after this local option election, there was talk in Greeley Tribune
articles of a “Wet Town” incoporating on Greeley’s southern edge. The 10 acre area known at the time as Ray’s Cottage Camp was owned by Mrs. A.F. Ray. The law at the time stated that in order to incorporate a town, there must be a petition filed with Weld County with 30 signatures of residents who were also landowners. Mrs. Ray began selling cabins and lots in her Cottage Camp for as little as $100.00 (she carried the mortgage) so that Garden City could meet the petition criteria.

According to Tribune articles written at the time, the incorporation of Garden City was challenged and found to be invalid twice but Garden City did finally become incorporated on the third attempt in 1938. According to the incorporation document on file in the Clerk’s Office, the incorporation date was August 2, 1938.

As the years progressed, the locals in the surrounding area would “go over the hill” to drink and dance.

The Movers & Shakers
The Movers & Shakers
The Movers and Shakers are a tight knit band of four music enthusiasts who bring everything they have to every single performance. Influences range from old school soul stars like Otis Redding and Sam and Dave to The Red Hot Chile Peppers, Talker, Joe Cocker and Jonny Lange.


The band is fronted by dynamic vocalist Andy Webber. Andy's energetic and soulful style is impressive. He is as comfortable with an Otis Redding ballad as he is with vintage 60's Steppenwolf or contemporary RnB from Blackstreet. Andy has the vocal chops to cover anything. Similarly guitarist Ryan Borthick's well rounded musical background has given him the skills to take on straight ahead blues and uptown funk. The son of drummer Kyle Borthick, Ryan is a fiery performer with a deep well of chops to draw from. Bass man Dane Vernon is a long time friend and musical associate of Ryan and Andy's. The three have worked together in several popular Denver based bands including Survivor and Secretly Supervised. Dane is actually gifted on multiple instruments and is a strong vocalist in his own right. Drummer/vocalist Kyle Borthick has been around the Denver music scene for many years. He has worked with such legendary Denver bands as J.D. and The Love Bandits , The Captains, Red Hot Blues Band and The Delta Sonics. He has also worked with national acts such as Bo Diddley, Dr John and Bob Margolin. This veteran blues/RnB drummer provides a solid backbone for this exciting group. Don't miss an opportunity to see this band. You won't be disappointed.
