  • Located in downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the historic Chief Theater was once a single-venue theater offering live performances and events from the late 1920’s through the late 1950’s.
  • Built in 1926, the building has been remodeled four times, reflecting four distinct periods of architecture. The Chief Re-Opened as a cultural and performing arts center in the summer of 2013.
  • The theater is a small 130-180 capacity room (depending on how configured) that makes attending live music events special. The farthest seat from the stage is 14 rows back and the acoustics approach as good as it gets.
  • The theater has hosted acts like Todd Park Mohr (Big Head Todd & The Monsters), John McCuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), The Wood Brothers, Cody Canada & The Departed, Michael Martin Murphey and more.

B Smith Presents focuses on bringing acts to Northwest Colorado that you can’t see anywhere else in the region, much effort is made to only bring in acts that are sure to make for a special night of music.
