Voted “Best Rock Band,” in the Taos News for many years running, the Jimmy Stadler Band is bringing their mix of rock-n-roll, alternative country, blues and more to Alamosa’s Cole Park this Sun., July 17, at 6pm, as part of the Alamosa Live Music Association’s “Sundays at Six,” series of free admission outdoor concerts.
A consummate musician, Jimmy Stadler has been performing coast to coast and around northern New Mexico for 25 years. Playing a variety of original music and cover songs with high positive energy and excellent musicianship at nightclubs, weddings, corporate events and other venues every year, the Jimmy Stadler Band has built a strong reputation. The New Mexico Music Industry Coalition has recognized them with many nominations and awards.
Stadler has worked with respected musicians such as Michael Martin Murphey, “You Never Promised Me a Rose Garden,” singer Lynn Anderson, Bill Payne (of Little Feat), Dixie Chicks collaborator Lloyd Maines, and Johnny Gimble (formerly of Bob Wills’ Texas Playboys).
Attendees in the park can enter to win tickets for rides on the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad’s concert trains. Tasties hot dogs and the San Luis Valley Brewing Company are scheduled to sell food at the summer Sundays at Six shows all season.
The Don Conoscenti Band plays on Sun., July 14. Their live performances are a soulful fusion of styles blended from their experience playing rock, jazz, blues, folk, funk and country.
ALMA also helps present music during the Valley Farmers’ Market, in the parking lot near the southeast corner of State Ave. and Main St. in Alamosa. A singer-songwriter with roots in the folk-rock vein and a great voice, Alison Kitchen entertains Sat., July 16, from 10am until noon.
