Anythink Backyard Concert Series | Presented by Xcel Energy
Our longtime concert tradition continues this summer with three online performances that will stream on Facebook and YouTube.We have new and fun ways for you to interact and connect with the band, with the library, and with each other – from the comfort of your home. Get concert-ready with blankets, chairs, bubbles or any of the other provisions that make for a fun, family-friendly night of music. Post photos of your home setup using the #BCS2020 hashtag – it might be featured on-air!
The Backyard Concert Series is made possible by generous support from our community sponsors, Xcel Energy, Ciancio Ciancio Brown, P.C. and TBK Bank. Ciancio Ciancio Brown is sponsoring this year in honor of Lisa Ciancio, who passed on May 27, 2020. She loved music and was passionate about giving back to her community.

About the bands
Walker Williams Band
Walker Williams is one of the Rocky Mountain region's most popular and entertaining country musicians. Having shared stages with Willie Nelson, Billy Dean, Sawyer Brown, Alan Jackson and Merle Haggard, Walker's infectious country style will have you out of your seat and doing a two-step.
Leon and The Revival
Leon and the Revival emerged in 2015, when members of other established Denver bands decided to collaborate on a new project showcasing a shared love of classic soul and R&B music from the 1960s and ’70s. Influenced by Otis Redding, Van Morrison, Solomon Burke, Ann Peebles and James Brown, Leon and the Revival fuse multiple music styles into a high-energy live musical experience.
Hazel Miller & the Collective
Colorado music legend Hazel Miller is back, returning for a third time to the Backyard Concert Series. Hazel Miller isn’t just a great singer, she’s a force of nature. Her decades-long career includes numerous awards and honors, including opening for artists such as James Brown, The Temptations and Mel Torme. Hazel Miller & the Collective perform an eclectic mix of jazz, R&B and blues.
