About the bands

July 8, 2017 – Lone Piñon kicks off a dynamic series of full moon concerts at the City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center, celebrating the change of seasons with exciting sights and sounds.

Lone Piñon will join Open Spaces from Northern New Mexico to celebrate and share the diversity of their region's cultural roots. Using violin, accordion, guitar, guitarrón, upright bass and harmony vocals in Spanish, English, and Nahuatl, the group has revived and updated the Chicano stringband style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted and explosive musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.

August 5th, 2017 – Felix y Los Gatos our next fenominal band!

A New Mexico based band with 15+ years of stage experience and an improvisational style that is uniquely their own. Their sound is crafted through the cultural influences of Zydeco, Tex-Mex, Blues, and Gypsy/Jazz (Think Django Reinhardt), Swing, and a dash of Outlaw country. This toe tapping band has shared the stage with acts such as Big Bad VooDoo Daddy, Tab Benoit, BeauSoleil, Ozomatli, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, FishBone, Dikki Du & the Zydeco Krewe, as well as featuring John Popper of Blues Traveler on the track “Hot Damn” from their Album, “OCHO”. One thing is certain, Felix y los Gatos is sure to get you out of your seat and dancing the night away!

September 2, 2017- Le Chat Lunatique, we are ending with a bang. Albuquerque’s own Le Chat Lunatique began prowling the nightspots of Albuquerque -that secret haven of hot jazz — back in 2005. From their earliest gigs, Le Chat Lunatique has offered swinging originals with ear-snagging hooks and stories to tell—well-constructed little gems that propagate earworms for ongoing pleasure. Devilishly clever lyrics offer insight into l’amour (“falling in love is like eating tacos”), a louche paean to a doting millionairess (“Buy me a Cadillac, buy me a yacht / Buy me everything that I haven’t got”), minatory observations on fate (“the bus of God will run you over”), and the inevitable bitterness of a broken heart (“Miss Lady... please do me the courtesy of drinking in some other gin joint”).

Will there be food?

Open Space Visitor Center is happy to host local food trucks: Mystique, Cheesy Street, Pop Fizz and Steves Italian Ice. Bring blankets, chairs, flashlights, your friends, family, friend’s family, reluctant neighbor and your fun self. We’ll be having a swinging good time so see you soon!
