Sundays at Six presents 9 Mile — August 12

The Alamosa Live Music Association is pleased to present 9Mile at Sundays at Six, August 12, in Cole Park, Alamosa. Go to Leon Memorial Hall at ASU, in case of rain.

From the Gunnison Valley on the Western Slope of the Colorado Rockies comes 9Mile – original Colorado flavored Country/Rock/Americana. Chris Coady has recently been recognized by Nashville Songwriter’s Association as “One to Watch” for his song concepts and the lyrical quality of his songwriting. Influences include John Hiatt, John Prine, Robert Earle Keen and the Eagles. Kevin Doherty’s lead guitar style is akin to the likes of Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton and Junior Brown, while at the same time bringing a contemporary “Millennial” Country Rock sound to the band. Coady and Doherty, together with the energetic percussion and harmony vocals of Jack Lucido and the solid bass lines of Brian Camp, have created that 9Mile “feel good” sound that keeps bringing audiences back for more!

Sundays at Six presents Tumbleweed — July 29

The Alamosa Live Music Association is pleased to present Tumbleweed at Sundays at Six, July 29, in Cole Park, Alamosa. Go to Leon Memorial Hall at ASU, in case of rain. We’re thrilled to be hosting these gents, who are such an important part of the musical memories of so many people in the San Luis Valley.

Tumbleweed originally formed in the fall of 1973 to be the house band at the newly opened location of the Goalpost night club in Alamosa, Colorado. Although there were no plans for any sort of long-term endeavor, the band quickly started collecting legions of fans and realized there was something going on worth sharing and continuing.  The band started branching out and over the years began touring extensively in their native region of Colorado and New Mexico. Tumbleweed always seemed to feel most at home in the mountain resort areas and became regulars at such well-known clubs as the Old Dillon Inn in Silverthorne, Colorado and many other high country clubs.

The band’s music was always characterized by wide-ranging variety, eclectic selection, and intricate and challenging arrangements. Although usually thought of as a country band, Tumbleweed played (and plays) material from rock to blues to reggae to bluegrass to old hippie anthems and pretty much whatever they feel like. With several active songwriters in the band, there was always a mix or original and cover material happening. It was always an interesting night, and no one (least of all the band) was ever sure what was going to happen.

Tumbleweed is a 5-piece fully electric powerhouse of a band, with a wide range of instruments including acoustic and electric guitars (often 3 lead guitar players) bass, drums, pedal steels (2 onstage) mandolin, accordion, fiddle, banjo, harmonica, trumpet, and even a clarinet making an occasional appearance.

Numerous different musicians moved through the ranks of Tumbleweed over the years, with the current lineup being the same as featured on their last studio album “Welcome” – Don Richmond on guitars, fiddle, banjo, pedal steel, harmonica, trumpet and vocals, Rob “Robear” Bosdorf on guitar, pedal steel and vocals (and clarinet if he’s feeling brave), George Egbert on drums and percussion, Roger Dawson on bass and vocals, and Scott Russell on guitar, mandolin and accordion.

And you still never quite know what’s going to happen! But it will be fun!
