Music in Ouray
June 6, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Music in Ouray returns. Once again the June, Ouray will be hosting the Mountain Air Music series, a free month long music festival. The series will feature incredible live music along with great food, non-alcoholic beverages, and beer, wine and spirits for purchase. Local non-profit organizations will benefit from beverage and food sales during the concerts. Each concert will be a multi-faceted family-friendly affair, with great kids’ entertainment to go along with the music. The festival is sponsored by the Ouray Hot Springs and other local businesses.
The concerts will be held in Fellin Park next to the Ouray Hot Springs pool every Thursday in June.
The musical line up for this year’s season is dynamic and diverse. Concert attendees will be treated to four weeks of quality musicians from across the country and British Columbia. Music genres encompassed in this year’s series include roots, blues, indie rock, Americana, bluegrass, and much more, with many of the bands putting a modern spin on classic sounds. Ouray’s Fellin Park will be filled with the sounds of big brass, sweet harmonies, quirky melodies and danceable beats.
The March Fourth Marching Band will be opening the season on June 6. The band, M4 to its fans, is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires dancing in an atmosphere of celebration. Aside from their marching band themed costumes, as well as the 5-piece percussion corps and 7-part brass section, M4 is far from a “marching band” in any traditional sense (though this group of about 20 has been known to parade down Main Street before taking the stage). M4 is anchored by funky electric bass and has been evolving into a more guitar- and vocal-driven musical experience.
Opening for the March Fourth band is Miss Emily, a half classic soul and one half modern funk/pop diva sensation.
