My love of music started at a very young age. I was only about 12 at the time and I remember putting together a cassette tape for my sisters who were going on a cross country driving trip. I spent many hours in my bedroom going through song after song to choose just the right ones.
Fast forward...before the pandemic, my husband (who’s a drummer) and I would average about
50 concerts a year at all different types of venues. I have to have music playing in everything I
do...skiing, paddle boarding, driving, etc. I became a tambourinist a few years ago and have
been very lucky to be called up on stage multiple times here in Park City.
We moved here in 2016 from Connecticut to be closer to my daughter as she trained on the U.S
Ski Team only to become an Olympian in the crazy sport of Aerials. She has since retired and
moved to Denver to start her own company, but we love it here so much that this is our
I started volunteering for Mountain Town Music about 2 ½ years ago and just love the people
and, of course, the music.
Anna joined the Mountain Town Music board as Secretary in the Summer of 2020. This position combines her love of language and her love of music. Anna moved to Park City in the Summer of 2012 from Jupiter, Florida. Before that she lived in Fort Collins, Colorado, where she received her English degree from Colorado State University. Anna loves to ski and hike in our beautiful mountains with her husband Todd, two kids Calvin and Max, and dog Buddha. She feels like giving back to this wonderful community by supporting this organization is an honor and a privilege.

Chris Gaines is a marketing/engagement professional who appreciates how music enhances all aspects of our daily lives.
We moved out to Park City five years ago from Boulder County, CO and one of the first organizations we came across in Park City was Mountain Town Music. Where else can you find a beautiful setting where parents can enjoy free live music while enjoying adult libations and kids can play outside with their friends? Every summer we schedule our lives around the concerts and enjoy listening to the incredible bands that MTM books while exploring the venues around Summit County.
Professionally I have a BSBA from CU-Boulder and a MBA from Denver University. I have been able to grow revenues, build engagement, and increase loyalty in the restaurant, casino, healthcare, and financial services industries.
I have an amazing wife, am the father of two elementary aged boys, and a husky. You’ll see me out there coaching their soccer teams or running around Park City trying to match my dependents energy levels. During winter I’ll snowboard, skin up mountains, and enjoy the cool crisp air. During summer I’ll be out there golfing, playing soccer, mountain biking, and hiking.
Music has always been a north star in life. Whether it was going to classic rock/alternative concerts with my parents growing up, listening to music to get amped up or chill out, or finding new artists music is such an incredible gift. Over the last year I have enjoyed Greensky Bluegrass and Railroard Earth at Red Rocks, The Lumineers at Maverick, and Roger Watters at Vivint.
I look forward to helping MTM with their marketing & membership programs and helping out wherever I can to help more people in the community find their groove.

Born and raised in Illinois, husband & father of 3, outdoor enthusiast and of course, music lover. My wife Angie is an administrator in the PC School District and our children range in age from graduating college to finishing HS in Park City. Music has been a part of life from as far back as I can remember and continues to be a part of most everything I do today. Early memories of drawing album covers while listening to my parents albums through the headphones for hours set the stage for a lifelong affair with music of all genres. This soundtrack spans hundreds of concerts from old school country to classic rock and metal to jam bands and bluegrass. Today almost all my hobbies include music of some kind. Mountain biking, skiing, and cooking are some of my favorite activities to combine with music. Fly fishing is one of the few things I enjoy where the music from the river overrides anything from the headphones.
A career in finance and this musical affair set the stage for engaging with MTM in 2022 when I joined the Finance Committee and then the Board of Directors. It doesn’t get much better than combining something I love with something I’m good at! 30+ professional years included public accounting, positions as Tax Director of a large privately held business, CFO of several outdoor industry companies and now a private consulting practice where we provide fractional CFO services to local businesses and NFP organizations.
Paul GruberVice President
Paul moved to Park City from New Hampshire’s White Mountains in the spring of 1995 to work for the Park City Mountain Resort and ski for a winter. The community created by the local music scene and the outdoor lifestyle helped make Park City home! Skiing, mountain biking and road biking keep him busy when he’s not enjoying the vibes created by Mountain Town Music.
Paul joined the Mountain Town Music Board of Directors in December of 2019, and is currently Membership Committee Chair. Paul runs the Competition Services Department for Park City Mountain, and brings 25 years of event production experience to the Mountain Town Music community.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato
For me, it's hard to imagine life without music. It is part of the rhythm of my life. If I am not actually 'listening' to music, I am still hearing it in my head and feeling it in my bones. Like many young boys, I wanted to play guitar and write rock songs about teenage angst. But as the realities of career, marriage and family kicked in, the guitar became dusty and the fingers grew soft. But throughout the years, music has always been there, providing the "the soundtrack of my life" (Dick Clark). In 2020 I retired from PwC in Boston after 30+ years and decided with my wife to buy a house in the Park City area and start Version 2.0 of life.
What does Version 2.0 look like? When I'm not skiing, biking or hiking in the great Utah outdoors, I am an advisor, investor and board member to companies and a coach to individuals and executives. Because it has given so much to me over my life, I wanted to give something back to music. I joined the board of Mountain Town Music to help continue its mission of bringing quality live music to the community. More than ever, our well being as individuals and as a community is threatened by the challenges and pressures of today's world. Music has the ability to heal, and we need that today, more than ever.
