About the perfomers:

If you want to party, have a good time, and dance all night, The Hot Lunch Band is the band to see!  “Specializing in hard core funk and just good dance music”.  Their music is so electrifying that the crowd will not be able to sit in their seats.  Audiences will not be able to control themselves, they will be drawn to get up and dance! This high-energy Denver-based band has been captivating audiences from coast to coast since 1981, playing R&B soul dance music from the 60’s to current.  Their ability to take any song and add their Hot Lunch flavor is exhilarating.  Their ability to perform any type of music is astounding.

The Mokomba Ensemble is a traditional and contemporary West African Drum and Dance Ensemble based in Boulder, Colorado. They are multinational performance group, with current members originating in Ghana, Senegal, Haiti, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico and the U.S.
