Concert Series at The Longmont Museum
There are several dates in July on which the Longmont Museum will be hosting free outdoor concerts. These concerts will be held in the Longmont Museum’s outdoor grassy courtyard. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets. On July 14th, the Los Mocochetes band will be performing. Los Mocochetes features groovy melodies and high-energy stage antics. On July 21st, the Delta Sonics band will be performing. The Delta Sonics’ music takes a Chicago Blues base and seasons it with Swing, New Orleans R&B, and early Rock and Roll. This group features many different instruments including the slide guitar, harmonica, bass, drums, and of course smooth vocals.
Continuing the series, Hazel Miller and the Collective will be performing on July 28th. Hazel Miller and the Collective have toured in venues all over the world including performances in North America, Europe, the Far East, Middle East, and Central America. What makes Hazel Miller a unique artist is that she sings music from several different genres. These genres include blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel. All of the bands described here begin their performances at 6:30 PM. Concessions will be sold at the event space. For more information check out the Longmont Museum's website.
