More about the Music...
The music begins at 10:30 a.m., so come early to enjoy a local favorite, The Galloping Gooses. This band of three covers a wide range of material on numerous instruments, with roots in country western, old time, bluegrass and folk music. Next to take the stage will be Formula 151 offering a sound unique in today's contemporary music. Formula 151 takes its listeners on a melodic and lyrical journey, incorporating dynamic arrangements, and including the resonance, passion and depth brought by the band’s cellist. The Porchlights will play next, performing original songs from any of their four primarily acoustic albums and from their fifth release titled Peace Pipe Dream, which will be complete this summer.
Next, welcome to the main stage the jazz-infused funk and groove of three of Denver's most talented musicians in the band BiggaDigga. Concentrating on original material, plus a handful of unconventional covers, BiggaDigga reaches out to groove, funk and jazz lovers, with an impressive set exploring multiple genres, textures and dynamics.
Finally, the band we’ve all been waiting for, Euforquestra, is an eclectic world-beat ensemble from Iowa City. With interests in different cultural and traditional musics from all over the globe, the band has made a mission statement out of preserving different traditions. The self-proclaimed "Afro-Caribbean-Barnyard-Funk" touches on such genres as Afrobeat, Afro-Cuban, Samba, Soca, Calypso, Funk, Reggae, and Bluegrass. Wrapping up the music scene for the night will be Fall Baby, playing a set at the Dolores River Brewery beginning at 9 pm.
