Halden Wofford and the Hi*Beams’ throwback and stylish take on the honky tonk genre is a breath of fresh air amidst other wannabe retro acts. With some of the choicest players on the Front Range and a professionalism that is bar-none, the Hi*Beams landed themselves on the famed NPR show “A Prairie Home Companion” in recent years and Wofford’s distinct vocals continue to garner the band well-earned attention. - Marquee Magazine, Boulder, CO

One of Colorado's most popular and enduring acts, the Hi*Beams have celebrated 17 years together. Rootsy but not revivalist, the Hi*Beams' rollicking stage act features rocked-up Texas honky tonk and western swing, equal parts original and classic.

Garrett Lebeau was born and raised on the Wind River Indian Reservation near Lander Wyoming and is an enrolled member of the Shoshone tribe. Speaking to both his playing and formative years, he has this to say..."Growing up we listened to very little music. There was mostly just the 80's top 40 so, we didn't listen much to the radio. There was so much wide open space, I think that is in the music somehow. I didn't really start playing much until I was out of school and then it was a very slow process where I taught myself notes and chords. The Blues spoke to me, the raw unadorned honesty is what still motivates me musically.. It spans all styles. When I say soul, I mean "SOUL" you know when music has it. I am not speaking of some narrow definition for a style of music. I speak of music with spirit about life... the trials and tribulations of the working man. Folk music is kin in spirit as is most music that I love. My goal is to connect with other like minded human beings, to keep the tradition of soul music alive. Where you write, play and sing from your own self - Just like the early blues musicians.. Feeling has no genre."

In early spring of 2012, Mark Walters and Ruth Katzin decided to form a concert band. And so, the Southwest Civic Winds began to take shape. Working together, they contacted people in their community and reached out to other communities in the Four Corners area. The result of that effort was a 57-member band composed of brass, woodwind, and percussion players. In March of that same year the band played as an ensemble for the first time. After four practices and eight hours of group rehearsals the band's first concert was held at the Community Concert hall at Fort Lewis College.

The Southwest Civic Winds conductor, Mark A. Walters, has served as the Director of Bands at Fort Lewis College since 1996. Before coming to Fort Lewis College, he had an extensive career in public school instrumental music programs.

With its provenance as a group that featured Brazilian percussive rhythms in 2009, the New Mexico based award-winning sensation, Baracutanga, quickly found its one-of-a-kind identity in exploring and mixing the many danceable rhythms of South America. The seven-piece band – representing four different countries – prides itself on arranging traditional South American rhythms in interesting ways, such as huayño and cumbia with Middle-Eastern derbuka or the Afro-Cuban bata and Afro-Peruvian festejo blended with Andian zampoñas, among countless other rhythmic combinations. This kind of experimentation has resulted in an exciting and iconic flavor all its own that leaves dancing crowds wanting more.

Dweezil Zappa "50 Years of Frank" Tour

Share by Email
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Date: Thursday August 10, 2017
Location: Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College
Category: Concert / Live Music
On his birth certificate, musician is listed under religion. His father was a gifted guitar virtuoso with an outlandish sense of humor. His teacher was Steve Vai. Oh yeah, he is also a fretboard whiz. It can only be Dweezil Zappa. Dweezil’s odd name has not been a barrier. If anything, it has helped him establish a unique identity. Perhaps that is what Frank had in mind for his progeny.

So, what do you do when your father is a famous singer-songwriter, electric six-string maestro, and all around legendary rock star? Dweezil Zappa’s answer was to go out and became a great guitar player in his own right. DZ’s first album, 1986’s Having a Bad Day, sounds like just what it is, a throwback to the '80s. In order to get a good dose of Dweezil, try his 1988 release, My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mother.

Most impressive is Dweezil’s ongoing “Zappa Plays Zappa” project, referred to as just ZPZ, performing the music of Frank Zappa. Dweez has it covered, right down to the sound that his dad used. He cannot help it; jamming is in his blood.

Dweezil is a chip right off the old Zappa block! Don't miss this one!
