Fans of the Lucky La Rue Band will be happy to learn that, after a five-year hiatus, the group is reforming to play a special benefit for KRZA Community Radio. The event is co-sponsored by ALMA, the Alamosa Live Music Association.
This popular band’s mix of well-known favorites and San Luis Valley-flavored original tunes will rock the INN OF THE RIO GRANDE, 333 SANTA FE AVE., ALAMOSA on Sept. 9, starting at 8pm. Opening for the Lucky La Rue Band are Pedro and the Pistons, another very popular local rock band.
