They may be dancin’ in New Orleans and the Motor City this summer, but don’t count out The Streets at SouthGlenn either.
Centennial’s premier mixed-use development is again hosting Dancing in the Streets, its annual summer concert series in Commons Park. The free bi-weekly outdoor concerts on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. will run the gamut from “acapella rock” to blues and 1980s dance music.
The schedule gets underway June 10 with nary an instrument on stage when Face performs a wide range of music using virtually nothing but the bodily part from which the “band” takes its name. Face’s rhythm section gets a workout.
The Eagles long ago gave up playing for free, but Colorado’s The Long Run will do its best to recreate the California band’s country-rock harmonies on June 24.
If a song’s got summer, beach or drinking lyrics or a Caribbean groove, you just might find it on the set list when the Margarita Brothers come south on July 8. Get your sunscreen and saltshaker.
The 10-person horn-infused Tunisia can bring a funky approach to virtually anything, from swing to disco. The high-energy dance band plays July 22.
A quick Google search reveals there are dozens of acts answering to the catchall, That Eighties Band, but it’s that one from Denver that will bring the decade to life on Aug. 12 replete with period costumes and artist tributes.
Closing out the season on Aug. 26 is Colorado mainstay Hazel Miller, who could sing the phonebook with her dynamic voice and make the thing sound soulful.
The Streets at SouthGlenn is located at the intersection of University Boulevard and Arapahoe Road. For more information, visit www.shopsouthglenn.com.
