Sundays at Six presents Dana Louise & The Glorious Birds — August 28

The Alamosa Live Music Association presents Dana Louise & The Glorious Birds on August 28th at 6 p.m. in Cole Park, Alamosa. Bring the whole family and help us dance into in the fall as we conclude our Sundays at Six series!

During a solo journey to the Azores Islands in 2011, Dana Louise, a visual artist, taught herself to play guitar. The daughter of Ezra Idlet of the Grammy-nominated Trout Fishing in America, Dana forged the beginnings of her sound, practicing amidst the archipelago’s lava rocks and dragon trees. Back in the States, she began singing and songwriting professionally, touring regionally and internationally, and is currently recording her debut album with Trout Records.

Joined by The Glorious Birds — Adams Collins (vibraphone and 5-string banjo), and Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood (Trout Fishing in America/guitar, percussion and bass) — Dana brings her vibrant, melodic vocals and finger picking to a body of complex songs. Drawing from jazz and bluegrass, carrying a contemporary beat, the sound is roots-rooted flung-into-the-future folk. Dana Louise and The Glorious Birds work to leave their audiences glowing with the magic music can bring: genuine human connection.

The Alamosa Live Music Association presents SLV Big Band at Sundays at Six, August 21, in Cole Park, Alamosa. SLV Big Band is proudly “keeping Jazz alive in Southern Colorado.” Come out and dance with us!

The SLV Big Band was formed in November 2003 with the idea of bringing Jazz and Big Band music to the San Luis Valley. Since its inception it has played at a number of events throughout the San Luis Valley. The band has played at fundraisers, community activities, and parties. The band is made up of people with a variety of different backgrounds and careers, ranging from retired and current band directors, information technology technicians, lawyers, and more. Every year, SLV Big Band honors veterans with a free concert. They also offer a free concert on Labor Day weekend in Salida for their town picnic. And each year, SLV Big Band contributes to ALMA’s promotion of music in the San Luis Valley by offering a free concert in Cole Park, Alamosa.

Sundays at Six presents Mariachi San Luis — Aug 7 — CHANGE OF VENUE

NOTICE — MARIACHI SAN LUIS WILL BE PERFORMING AT LEON MEMORIAL HALL AT ASU ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 7, AT 6:00 PM, NOT COLE PARK, DUE TO RAIN.

The Alamosa Live Music Association presents Mariachi San Luis at Sundays at Six, August 7th in Cole Park, Alamosa. Come celebrate our region’s Hispanic heritage with a favorite local mariachi group.

The group began as a result of a conference sponsored by Adobe de Oro – Concilio de Artes held in Alamosa, Colo., in the fall of 1998. Mariachi San Luis is composed of younger students and adults. Their goal is to provide a safe, educational, alcohol and drug-free environment. This vibrant group of musicians has achieved remarkable growth and maturity, which can be attributed to the dedication of the students and a very aggressive performance schedule. The mariachi group has performed in communities all over the San Luis Valley, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Denver and Santa Fe.

Although mariachi music originated in Jalisco, Mexico, groups in the United States have appropriated the style as a proud expression of their heritage, and, although they appeal to audiences of any ethnicity, Mariachi San Luis is a fine example of this movement.
