AvonLIVE! Free Concert Series Begins Wednesday, June 23rd with Los Texmaniacs
Free community concerts are presented by the Town of Avon
Avon, CO – We invite the community to join us at the Avon Performance Pavilion in Harry A. Nottingham Park on Wednesday, June 23rd as we kick off the inaugural AvonLIVE! free community concert series. Grammy Award winning Los Texmaniacs will open the series and take the stage at 7:00 p.m., entertaining audiences with their award-winning Tejano sounds.
Los Texmaniacs is a conjunto band created by Max Baca in 1997. In 2010, Los Texmaniacs won a Grammy Award for Tejano Album of The Year “Borders y Bailes.” Members include Max Baca on bajo sexto, Josh Baca on accordion, Noel Hernandez on electric bass, and Lorenzo Martínez on the drums. Los Texmaniacs have collaborated with various artists from different genres including Rick Trevino, Flaco Jimenez, and Los Lobos.
Local favorites, The Runaway Grooms open for Los Texmaniacs at 6:00 p.m. Born from the rich culture of the Colorado mountains, The Runaway Grooms are advancing the musical sounds of the high country into a diverse blend of Americana tones derived from Southern Rock influences of The Allman Brothers Band melded with eclectic grooves similar to legends like the Grateful Dead. Between dueling guitar solos, the fullness and raw power of a screaming lap steel guitar, and three-part harmonies, The Runaway Grooms grapple the Colorado music scene while expanding their reach all across the country. The band continues to harvest the energy of the mountains transforming it into melodic masterpieces, which are sure to hit you like a freight train before the 2-4-1’s do.
Local food trucks will be serving up mouthwatering food and the Hahnewald Bar will be selling an assortment of ice-cold refreshing libations with a $3 discount between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m.
“AvonLIVE! is a plastic-free event so please leave your plastic beverage containers at home and purchase a recyclable canned product from the Hahnewald Bar or bring your own fillable water bottle,” stated Danita Dempsey, Culture, Arts & Special Events Manager for the Town of Avon. Please no glass bottles in the park.
