November Performers 


Kevin Herig 

Kevin made his introduction into the ABQ music scene in 2005 as the lead vocalist and songwriter in the band Asper Kourt. The band quickly gained a strong local following with their new age, folk/rock style. Kevin’s laid back demeanor and feel good style of songwriting are showcased now as a singer/songwriter.


Treehouse Basement

Treehouse Basement is an Albuquerque-based that loves making music. They play with passion and write original feel good songs from the heart. Their influences include Nirvana, Willie Nelson, The Commodores and The Killers. They currently play all over Albuquerque and have played at events like the Local Band Showcase, Fight for Fiestas and 2016 Westside Summerfest. 


October Performers 


Big K & Blue Train

Big K & Blue Train formed in Albuquerque in 2015. Their focus is on classic style R&B/Soul with some blues and funk thrown in for good measure. Although the band is relatively new, the members have been playing in and around Albuquerque for many years. They have spent the last year building up their set lists and are now adding original music to the mix.


Le Chat LunatiqueLe Chat Lunatique

As unpredictable, fearless, and entertaining as their namesake, Le Chat Lunatique purveys an addictive genre they call “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that makes you want to smoke and drink too much—if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, doo-wop, and “anything else we damn well please” into strikingly original compositions and audaciously reworked standards alike.

Stay tuned for more information on future concerts!
