Continuing their mission of spreading the message of swinging jazz and other music genres, the San Luis Valley Big Band performs this Sun., July 25 at 6pm in Alamosa’s Cole Park, as part of the Alamosa Live Music Association’s (ALMA) “Sundays@Six,” series.

A dedicated group of people from all walks of life, the San Luis Valley Big Band is a non-profit community band. Retired music teachers, active music teachers, technology professionals, students and others come together in this rural area of south central Colorado to share their love of music. Their concerts have become a much-anticipated annual tradition as part of “Sundays@Six.”

Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams return to the SLV with their classic style of honky-tonk country, western swing and rockabilly that conjures up images of Hank Williams Sr., Buddy Holly and Bob Wills on Aug. 2 at 6pm in Cole Park.

Vendors are scheduled to offer food for sale at the concerts. In case of inclement weather, the shows will take place in Leon Memorial Hall on Richardson St. on the Adams State College campus.

The Valley Farmers’ Market, organized by the Alamosa Uptown and River Association, at Centennial Park, between Main and 6th streets and between State and Hunt avenues in Alamosa presents live music with support from ALMA. Mark Dudrow and Justin Dean play acoustic Celtic, folk, classical, and bluegrass music on cello, guitar and other instruments this Sat., July 24, from 10am until 12pm.

ALMA’s gracious members and business sponsors support the free summer “Sundays @ Six,” concerts and other ALMA events.
