A weekend of music is coming up at the historic Tabor Opera House in Leadville.

Dos Santos brings a funky, Latin-based groove to the Tabor Stage beginning at 8 p.m. on July 27. The next afternoon features the Denver Concert Band.

Dos Santos’ sound is a mix of Latin styles overlaid with a fuzzed-out surf guitar that brings a punk edge to the mix. Imagine Santana with a bit of the Sex Pistols thrown in, and you’ll have a good idea of their energy. Rob Miller, whose Pickin’ Productions is bringing the band to the Tabor, says this about them:

“We had a goal of bringing in a strong Latin band this year, and we’re thrilled to introduce Dos Santos,” said Miller.”They hail from Chicago and blend traditional Mexican folk, salsa and cambia with some jazz, soul and R&B…bringing it all together into the modern world.”

The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) are each proficient in a range of musical styles, in addition to having a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing.

On Sunday, July 28, 2019, at 2 p.m., the Denver Concert Band will play patriotic tunes and well-known Broadway, pop music and movie soundtracks. The band enjoys sharing a wide range of musical experiences, usually with a mix of marches, older classics and contemporary music. The

Denver Concert Band is comprised of 90 volunteer musicians who rehearse and perform year-round throughout Colorado. Music lovers are invited to support both the Tabor House Preservation Foundation and this volunteer band!

Tickets cost $20 for each show. They are available online at and at the box office, 308 Harrison Ave., Leadville.
