The first of the Paint the Town Blue concert series is The Movers & Shakers from Denver.
The Movers & Shakers are a dynamic collaboration of family and friends. Their live performances have become the stuff of legend in the Rocky Mountain region. The band’s energy and chemistry are the result of longstanding friendships and family members. Each member is either related or has one or more friendships in the group which date back a decade or more. Their style is rock and soul straight from the heart.
The Movers & Shakers comes to play! Play what, you ask? Original music that is informed by everything from 60’s soul music, blues, contemporary alt rock and even post punk. Band members ages range from mid twenties to mid sixties. Anything goes. Cover tunes range from Ray Charles and Otis Redding to Blackstreet and Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats. Audiences are moved by the unapologetic and carefree approach to music making.
Paint the Town Blue is a free concert series sponsored by the Pikes Peak Blues Community. It showcases some of the areas most exciting blues entertainers and runs every Thursday from June 21 through July 19 in Thorndale Park.
