The Longmont Museum’s virtual summer concert series continues tonight with a performance by the 101st Army Dixieland Band.
One of the U.S. Army’s most popular band ensembles, the 101st Army Dixieland Band’s repertoire features music from the beginning of jazz, bringing the hits of Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Jelly Roll Morton, and many others to a new generation of traditional jazz enthusiasts. Regular favorites at the legendary Sacramento Jazz Jubilee and Monterey Dixieland Band Bash, these soldiers honor their nation through the most original American art form — jazz.
The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. and can be accessed from the museum’s Facebook page by clicking on videos. Longmont Public Media also will broadcast the concert series on Comcast channels 8 and 880 and at longmontpublicmedia.org/watch.
Upcoming concerts and performers, according to the Museum’s website, will be:
July 16 — Delta Sonics
The Delta Sonics’ music takes a Chicago Blues base and seasons it with swing, New Orleans R&B, and early rock ‘n’ roll. Voted the Westword’s best blues band in Denver, the group dazzles with slide guitar, harmonica, bass, drums and smooth vocals, according to a posting on the museum.
July 23 — Megan Burtt with Dave Tamkin
Inspired by Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt, singer/songwriter Megan Burtt taught herself to play guitar and made her dream of a musical career a reality. Raised in the Rocky Mountains, Megan now splits her time between Brooklyn, Denver, and the road. Burtt is currently in the studio working on her third full-length solo record.
July 30 — Quemondo
Known as one of Colorado’s hottest salsa bands, the 10-piece salsa band brings infectious live energy to each show. Quemando plays the sounds of traditional and contemporary artists, including Celia Cruz, Marc Anthony and Gloria Estefan, and combines the style of salsa music with that of Frank Sinatra or The Beatles.
