WEEK TWO IS IN THE BOOKS!

Thanks to all our Bandstand fans at the downtown location – and the Southside – for turning out in record numbers to dance, dine and simply enjoy the cooler evening weather while listening to fine free music.  Here are a few shots to remind you of what we saw in Week Two:

SANTA FE BANDSTAND BEGINS NEXT MONTH!

_DEL1883xxThanks to the hundreds of bands and artists who applied to be part of the 2016 Bandstand season. It took a while (way longer than usual) but we finally have our lineup – and it’s a great one!

In an effort to keep things fresh, 44% of this year’s schedule is built with new acts- bands that have never been part of our concert series. And in a nod to the fast-growing “locally sourced” movement, 83% of our lineup is comprised of New Mexico-based bands.

This year’s Grammy Award-winning acts include Zydeco master Terrance Simien on July 12th, Bluegrass legend Tim O’Brien on July 27th and a twin-bill of Grammy winners with Larry Mitchell and Robert Mirabal on August 16th.

Other season highlights include Mali’s Mamadou Kelly, presented in conjunction with the International Folk Art Market’s opening night Artist’s Procession, Polyrhythmics, an 8-piece Fela Kuti-style Afrobeat dance band from Seattle, The Sheepdogs – the first unsigned rock band to ever grace the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine and a special “top secret” night of programming from our friends at Meow Wolf.

We’re also very pleased to be bringing Bandstand programming back to the Southside with a series of four special Saturday night shows. These events will be held at San Isidro Plaza in the courtyard directly in front of Plaza Cafe Southside, across from the Regal Cinema. A great opportunity enjoy a cocktail, have dinner and dance the night away.

More details on the 2016 Bandstand season can be found by clicking on the “Event Schedule” tab.

See you July 5th!
