The Watters (formally the Oak Creek Band) and their 5-piece band will be touring the Southwest in June promoting their new full-length album "Great Unknown" and will be performing at Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, in the Plaza de la Fuente, 336 State Route 179, on June 7.
The show begins at 6:30 and is for all ages.
This show is a free community event sponsored by Tlaquepaque. Patrons are encouraged to get there early. During the show there will be "no host" food carts and a bar cart on site. So grab your dancin' shoes and come out to enjoy an evening of great music under the stars.
Imagine Fleetwood Mac and Tedeschi Trucks Band merging into one dynamic super group, and you will start to get an idea of The Watters unique sound. The band's continued exploration of Americana, Rock, Funk and Soul music creates a timeless and unique sound that, while hard to define is also strangely familiar.
The Watters new album, "Great Unknown", will be available at this show although the official release date is July 2, 2016. The album was recorded in Austin, TX at Cacophony Studios in late 2015 and January of 2016.
The music and lyrics are original and written by founders, Daniel & Jenna Watters. An all-star cast of Austin musicians were recruited to play keys, percussion, and a 3 piece horn section joined the core band, embodying the live energy that epitomizes The Watters music.
Daniel and Jenna, born and raised in Sedona, have been playing music together for 12 years, writing together for 8 years and have recorded seven albums together.
They have toured extensively throughout the country and sold out the first pressing of their self-titled EP in less than one year.
The Watters have garnered a devoted fan base through their high-energy performances, well-crafted songwriting, stirring vocals and harmonies, and road-weathered musicianship. Their songs are webbed in a world of truth and wonder with a timeless spirit.
The Watters will travel from Austin to Arizona with performances in Flagstaff, Sedona, and Phoenix, marking their first return to Arizona since they relocated to Austin in February of 2015.
