Saturday, Feb. 22, Main Stage presents a double-billed show from two of Arizona’s best bands, Fayuca and Desert Fish, starting at 8 p.m.
Phoenix based Fayuca is a Reggae-Rock/ Latino group formed in 2004 by founding member, Gabo. Their sound shifts through genres while blending modern-reggae melodies with Latin percussion, tied seamlessly by razor guitar riffs and progressive rock breakdowns.
Their music has been featured on MTV, Univision, FOX Sports and other popular TV networks. Currently backed by bass player, Mario Sepulveda, trumpet player, Danny Torgersen, and drummer, Arturo Sosa, the four-piece has become an international touring act.
They have shared the stage with leaders in their genre like Molotov, 311, The Roots, Cultura Profetica, Slightly Stoopid, Sublime with Rome, Damien Marley, Gondwana, Dread Mar I and many more. Formed in 2011, Desert Fish, is a rock/reggae/alternative band based out of Tucson.
The diverse background of each member of this desert dwelling quartet combine to create an electric sound that echoes the spirit of island reggae mixed with the distorted guitars and loud drums of modern stadium rock. Presale tickets are $7 at eventbrite.com until 2/21 or $10 at the door on the day of the show. This is a 21 and over show.
Friday, Feb. 21, Main Stage and DJ ill.Ego present the Verde Valley’s own Mardi Gras dance party and celebration. There will be special prizes for the first 50 people through the door and drink specials all night long. DJ ill.Ego will fill the night full of tunes from old school, R&B, hip hop, Latin and everything in between.
Music starts at 9 p.m., so get ready to laissez les bon temps rouler or let the good times roll. There is no cover for this 21 and over event.
