Grab your lawn chair and join Anythink for a series of picnic-style concerts at the Anythink Wright Farms one-acre park. You don’t even have to pack your picnic basket – we’ll have BBQ and beverages available for purchase for a minimal price. (Vegetarian options are available, too!)
Our summertime Backyard Concert Series is the perfect venue for music and fun for the whole family. Funds raised through food and beverage sales will benefit the Anythink Foundation and future Nature Explore classrooms at Anythink. Supporters can also choose to donate directly by texting NATURE to 50155.
The Backyard Concert Series is free and open to the public, from 6:30-8:30 pm the second Friday of each month.
About the Bands
Gora Gora Orkestar brings the sounds of the Balkans to the Rockies with high-energy performances. This 10-piece brass band is dedicated to making the audience dance with its infections rhythm and distinct brand of feel-good music. The sound is an eclectic mix, blending Old World melodies of Eastern European folk with the back beat of American funk and the sway of South American tango.
Featuring Erica Brown – “Denver’s Queen of the Blues” – on vocals, Dan Treanor’s Afrosippi Band blends blues, Cajun, R&B, rock and roll, and soul to create their own brand of modern music. Their high-energy performances provide an entertaining and dynamic experience for any audience. In 2013, the band took third place in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn.
Jonny Barber & the Rhythm Razors cut a wide swath across today’s rockabilly scene. Drawing from swing, classic rock and country sounds, the Rhythm Razors put their own modern twist on a classic style. With charismatic performances, their brand of rockabilly encourages everyone to get up and dance.
The Anythink Backyard Concert Series is made possible with help from our generous sponsors and partners: Ciancio, Ciancio & Brown, P.C., Westword, Valley Bank & Trust, United Power, Stifel, Nicolaus & Co, Dickey's Barbecue Pit, Beer By Design and Balistreri Vineyards.
