Bands...Bricks...Enough Said.


For ten glorious nights well-loved local bands will rock out on the 1300 block of Pearl Street for the masses. Join the 1,500+ people that swarm the bricks weekly to engage in eating, listening, dancing and general tomfoolery...all for free!

The 12th year of this quintessential Boulder Summer event kicks off TONIGHT with Funkiphino, a band that’s sure to get your feet tapping. Rock out to covers of the classics (think Bille Jean and Repect) with what Westword Magazine called The Best Funk Band. Sample their music and preview their shows here.

June will feature not only funk, but Latin-infused rock as well as soul-stirring blues. Soul Sacrifice on the 17th will play their saucy renditions of Santana favorites such as Oye Como Va and Black Magic Woman. On the 24th will be The Informants, voted Best Blues Band by Westword Magazine. Known as “Denver’s little secret”, this band features eclectic upbeat modern roots numbers with sex-kitten vocalist Kerry Pastine.

Ringing in the first day of July is The Champions. Performing the music of Journey, Heart, Boston, Stevie Nicks and many more, The Champions will rock you back to the 80s. On July 8th, The Fab-4 will recreate the sounds of The Beatles, and then Hazel Miller, Aretha's self-proclaimed soul sister will sing on the 15th. Homeslice, a vocal and horn musical powerhouse will then take the stage on the 22nd and the Legendary 4-Nikators will follow on the 29th with 60's and 70's Motown.

Wrapping up the series in August will be Chris Daniels & the Kings on the 5th, a horn band playing Funk/Jump Blues/Rock 'n Roll followed by Opie Gone Bad, an alternative rock/funk band on the 12th.

Don't miss the opening of Boulder's beloved concert series Bands on the Bricks TONIGHT from 7 - 9 p.m.!

Makes me wish I lived in Boulder! I'll just have to do so vicariously through your blog. Keep up the nice writing!
