2019 Sounds of Centerra Lineup:
Friday, July 12: ZiMBiRA (Afro-fusion)
ZiMBiRA Afro Fusion Band revels in the traditional & contemporary music of Zimbabwe. The music is grounded in the ancient repertoire of the mbira and the beat of the hosho shaker.

6 Million Dollar Band is the ultimate 80s experience. Colorado’s premier party band, offering high energy 80s dance hits with concert-level show production, guaranteed to keep the dance floor moving all night long.
Friday, August 2: Wes Urbaniak & The Mountain Folk (Mountain Country, Americana)
Urbaniak’s experimental expressionism puts fire to the gasoline structure of folk music. His songwriting can be thought of as a quilting of life lived, lessons learned, humility sought, and understanding earned through the processes of becoming a steady and thoughtful man. In support of the Mountain Folk music that Wes Urbaniak plays, he has brought on some other stringed talent to help develop the dynamic and the melodic themes for the stories that he delivers. The message he brings with him is a simple one, but an important one: The change in me is the change in you.
This year’s concert series will feature a rotating option of food trucks each week in the north end parking lot of Chapungu Sculpture Park. Each week will include dessert treats from Divine Ice Cream and most weeks will include a coffee truck as well. Chick-fil-A will also be onsite with the Cow and handlers, providing giveaways and coupons.
