Scene Stealers | November 2022


FACE Vocal Band at the Boulder Theater

For more than 15 years, FACE has been a beloved a capella sensation that has grown from hometown heroes into international sensations, thanks to complex, insanely tight vocal harmonies and show-stopping beat-boxing skills. They put on an incredible show — whether it’s in the intimate setting of the Soiled Dove in Denver or on the Red Rocks stage in Morrison. This year, they bring their silky sounds to the Boulder Theater for their Holiday Concert, which will be filled with good humor and beautiful versions of all your favorite holiday classics. At the Boulder Theater, Dec. 7, doors open at 6:30, $25+, bouldertheater.com.
