AvonLIVE! Summer Concert Series Wednesday, August 23
featuring Diggin Dirt
The Town of Avon presents free community concerts
The summer is beginning to wind down and so is AvonLIVE! with only two more Wednesday shows! Please join us at the Avon Performance Pavilion at Harry A. Nottingham Park for more free live music and fun at AvonLIVE! this Wednesday, August 23 at 5:30 p.m. Diggin Dirt, a seven-piece band emerging from behind the redwood curtain in Humboldt County, California, is skyrocketing through the west coast music scene. Shoveling out their own path, and consistently wowing audiences and filling concert venues, Diggin Dirt is no ordinary funk and soul band. Their sounds explode off the stage with a pure authentic energy, and once they have you in their clutches, the relentless dance party does not let up.
Diggin Dirt has an intoxicating and infectious sound, fueled by a blazing horn section, pulsating rhythms, and searing guitars, that when combined into one, have been known to entice even the shyest of wallflowers to start moving and grooving. Tying it all together is the band’s front man, who is in possession of the pipes, charisma, moves, and natural-born-soul, and launches this ensemble into rarefied air. Behold, as they layer humble influences of psychedelic rock, Motown soul, Afrobeat, and even reggae, atop a sturdy foundation of late 60’s inspired funk music. You might have flashes of James Brown or Sly and the Family Stone, Otis Redding, or Tower of Power, but make no mistake that you are in the presence of spine-tingling originality.
Kevin Supina opens AvonLIVE! at 6:00 p.m. and is a Denver-based multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer best known for his work with funk/rock/jam band Envy Alo. His new project Kevin Supina Band features some of Denver’s best musicians playing Kevin’s carefully crafted originals songs and a wide array of covers of artists like Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Jackson Browne, Phish, the Grateful Dead and many more. With a background in jazz and a love for jam bands, KSB often uses songs as a springboard for deep collective improvisation and exploration. Among all these styles and influences, Kevin Supina Band is sure to please all audiences.
