Performers

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

National Headliner: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

Since their inception in 1984, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have been one of rock music's most prolific touring and recording bands. During their 30+ year career they have played thousands of shows all over the world and released a slew of ground breaking albums.

The Bosstones are credited as a progenitor of the ska-punk genre, and the creators of its sub-genre ska-core, a form of music which mixes ska with punk and hardcore. Since the release of their 1989 debut album Devil's Night Out, the band has toured and recorded extensively.

They were a key figure in the development of the mid-90's "Third Wave" ska scene and one of the first bands to popularize the genre in the musical mainstream with their platinum-selling 1997 album Let's Face It, and its hit single "The Impression That I Get." They have also earned the reputation as one of the hardest touring bands in rock.

The band released seven studio albums, three EPs, and a live album by the time they announced a hiatus in December 2003.

Heights Openers

The Joseph General Band

In 2011, Joseph General formed The Joseph General Band and began performing all over New Mexico. The JGB began by fusing unity through the power of music. This multi award winning 6-piece reggae group is composed of some Albuquerque's top musicians who all perform in other successful groups in New Mexico and around the country. With love and positivity at the heart of the message, The Joseph General Band delivers uplifting sounds to entertain adults and children.

Joseph General is an artist hailing from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since 1997, Joseph "General" Evans has brought forth a message of truth through the power of reggae music. Joseph 'General' Evans has performed with bands such as One Foundation, Mystic Vision, Native Roots, 2bers and I Conscious. In 2008, Joseph "General" began recording his first solo CD with the One Foundation Band. "Own Reality" was released in 2010. Three songs from the album were nominated for the 2011 New Mexico Music Awards.

Zoltan and the Fortune Tellers

Wild like the west, fine like an aged whiskey Zoltan and the Fortune Tellers are indeed frisky. Songs about women and songs about cheese. They will play a march fit for a circus of fleas. Delusional dictators and amorous love songs. With a rotating carousel of only the finest musicians, they are wildly hilarious, smart, and efficient. A Jack of all trades, you will find Zoltan in movies. His musical antics are really a doozie. That is our story and we are sticking to it.

Eugene

Eugene is a rock band that was founded and nurtured in the rich cultural heritage of New Orleans. They bring a contemporary spin on a classic blues sound with their original tunes.

The trio of Eugene garnered a healthy Albuquerque following within the short time they have called this city their home.

Guitarist Emmanuel Catanzariti, bassist Kendall Jones and drummer Marshal Broyels have solidified their reputation as a must-see live act. Eugene's new record "Kush" will be released this summer in Albuquerque.
