About the band 

Like a musical time-warp where Etta James fronted Lake Street Dive, Mama Magnolia pepper their brew of soul and rock with boisterous horns, jazzy flavor, gospel heart, classical resonances, and even a little hip-hop swagger. The Denver six-piece would be just as at home in a New York City jazz dive as they would be on forested festival grounds.

About the bands

Funkiphino

One of the Front Range’s most popular funk bands, Funkiphino is very high-energy – this band will quickly get the crowd dancing. They play a wide range of hits, including more traditional funk and also current pop hits. I think they’ll be a good fit for our audience.

Gora Gora Orkestar

Gora Gora Orkestar brings the sounds of the Balkans to the Rockies with high energy performances. Formed in the fall of 2009, this 10 piece brass band is dedicated to making the audience dance with its infectious rhythm and own brand of feel-good music.

Hazel Miller

Hazel Miller is not just a great singer, "she is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought after performer in Colorado for the past 24 years. Whether she is singing blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul.
