On Friday, April 25, Eric Miller Band will lead off "Fuego Friday" a Latin and Salsa themed night of music and dance at Main Stage in Cottonwood. Making his Main Stage debut, Miller is certainly no stranger to the Verde Valley - he has performed regularly throughout the area for several years
Hungry for travel and exposure to different sounds and music, Eric left Detroit in the mid 90's to travel to Europe where he spent months busking on the streets of France, Italy, England, Ireland, and eventually Spain. It was there that he was seduced by the art of flamenco. After returning to the states, he was privileged to meet and eventually perform with La Dama Maria del Carmen, a world-renowned flamenco dancer who has performed with such flamenco greats as maestros Carlos Montoya and Juan Serrano.
The night will feature Salsa dancing, flamenco and Brazillian style music and several drink specials. The event is free and begins at 9 p.m.
On Saturday, April 26, locals Doubleblind return Main Stage with their high energy rock. Doubleblind is a well-loved local rock outfit based out of Jerome. Led by electric frontwoman Mary Kyrle Pfeffer, the band's driving hard rock sound has captivated Verde Valley for several years running now. The band recently released their first album, the self-titled "Doubleblind." The show is free and begins at 9:30 p.m.
Main Stage is located at 1 S. Main St. in Cottonwood. All events are free to the public unless otherwise indicated. For more information please call (928) 202-3460 or visit www.mainstagetheater.com
