Santa Fe Bandstand presents
Santa Fe Bandstand is a free summer music festival on the Santa Fe Plaza, produced by Outside In Productions and a crew that strives to present the city with a wide range of performers, who represent the diversity and wealth of musical talent in this region. Performances take place Monday to Friday, starting on June 21 through August 23, 2013. All shows are free and open to the public.
Todd & The Fox: Indie. Dusty, dance-oriented music, written by Todd Lovato on five-string banjo, and featuring the drumming of talented multi-instrumentalist Erik Sawyer. In the tradition of rustic American folk and blues, Todd and the Fox takes a minimalist approach to performance: banjo, drums, bass foot pedals and voice. An “electro-roots” hybrid between modern acts like The Black Keys and The White Stripes. 2013 New Mexico Music Awards nominee for “Best Album of the Year.”
John Courage & The Great Plains: Indie. Their “Don't Fail Me Now" release received an honorable mention in SantaFe.com’s “Best Santa Fe Albums of 2012.” The songs on the album are reminiscent of something similar to Jakob Dylan and the Wallflowers while maintaining their own vibe with original songs and music. Their upcoming album, GEMS, is due to be released in June of 2013. Just in time!
Tonight's performances are sponsored by the Santa Fe School of Massage.
