Add to your calendar
Date: August 15, 5:30 pm
Location: Center for the Arts Outdoor Stage
Details: Mama Magnolia is your guide through a groovy and dangerous musical landscape. Their sound pushes musical boundaries while capturing the ear, touching the soul, and moving the body. Their powerful blend of groovy rhythms, explosive horn lines, captivating melodies, and soulful lyrics invites you to want more. With a love of shifting meters, polyrhythmic structure, evolving harmonies, and complex dynamic shape, they let the music guide them to create danceable and undeniably deep music that is tasty soul candy to those who hear it.

This crew from Denver, CO pulls inspiration from a variety of genres and brings it to the table to create the intertwining and captivating sound that they call home. They want to create music to make your body move and your brain think, but mostly, they want to give you the gift of music. Every show, every event, every gathering of any kind is a family gathering with Mama Magnolia - and the kitchen is full of music, dancing, singing, and making noise from the rooftops!

Alpenglow concerts are held rain or shine. They are free and open to the public.
