June 18 — Hazel Miller and the Collective
The Hazel Miller Band has toured North America, Europe, the Far East, Middle East, and Central America. Hazel is always backed by some of the finest musicians and vocalists in the world. Whether she’s singing the blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul.
June 25 — Felonius Smith Trio
Offering up prewar blues music at its most authentic, the Felonius Smith Trio takes us back to a time when original bluesmen were pioneering a new musical style. Felonius Smith’s slide and snappy finger picking guitar style transports you back some 80 years, relaxing on a riverbank in southern Mississippi.
July 2 — Clandestine Amigo
Clandestine Amigo’s Jessica Carson creates a mix of darkly poetic, R&B inspired rock backed by Colorado Music Hall of Famer Michael Wooten on drums, Chris Brunhaver’s steady bass, and Giselle Collazo’s dynamic vocals. Clandestine Amigo brings a smooth and sultry sound to the stage.
July 9 — 101st Army Dixieland Band
This mirthful military band’s repertoire features music from the beginning of jazz, bringing the hits of Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Jelly Roll Morton, and many others to a new generation of traditional jazz enthusiasts. Regular favorites at the legendary Sacramento Jazz Jubilee and Monterey Dixieland Band Bash, these soldiers honor their nation through the most original American art form—Jazz!
July 16 — Delta Sonics
The Delta Sonics’ music takes a Chicago Blues base and seasons it with Swing, New Orleans R&B, and early Rock and Roll. Voted the Westword’s best blues band in Denver, the group dazzles with slide guitar, harmonica, bass, drums, and smooth vocals.
July 23 — Megan Burtt with Dave Tamkin
Inspired by Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt, singer/songwriter Megan Burtt taught herself to play guitar and made her dream of a musical career a reality. Raised in the Rocky Mountains, Megan now splits her time between Brooklyn, Denver, and the road. Megan is currently in the studio working on her third full-length solo record.
July 30 — Quemondo
Known as one of Colorado’s hottest salsa bands, this infectious 10-piece salsa band brings infectious live energy to each show. Quemando plays the sounds of traditional and contemporary artists, including Celia Cruz, Marc Anthony, and Gloria Estefan, and combines the style of salsa music with that of Frank Sinatra or The Beatles.
Concerts are held rain or shine. In the event of rain, they move the concerts indoors to the 250-seat Stewart Auditorium. The Museum is at 400 Quail Rd., Longmont.
