Local Music Listing




March 24 - 31 


Hey folks! Consider other ways

to support your local artists:

  1.  Log onto Facebook and watch these local livestreams, listed below!

  2. Consider donating to a local band/musician by tipping their livestream shows, or sending them a small "thank-you" tip on their Venmo, Paypal, or Cash App accounts. 

  3. Follow these local musicians on social media! Liking and sharing content really helps!

  4. Consider purchasing some merch from any local band with local goodies! Albums, hats,  t-shirts, stickers, and  posters make great stocking stuffers.

  5. Consider ordering takeout from any of your favorite local restaurants/venues...the musicians need these venues to be there when we come back, too!

M...M...Mark Your Calendars!

Red Mountain Boys

Saturday, April 17

|Doors: 5:15 pm|

|6 pm Show|

Stargazers Theatre



The Red Mountain Boys are a hot new bluegrass supergroup lighting up the Pikes Peak region. A longtime staple of the scene, Alan Begley (Willie Bean Bluegrass) fronts the Boys with his Martin flat-top guitar. Lewis Mock (Kansas State Hall-of-Fame musician, Radford & Lewis Band) brings the fire with his five-string banjo. Jon Murphy (Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, The Grass is Dead) keeps the Boys rock solid with his metronome-like bass playing. Jeff Daugherty (2014 John Hartford Songwriting Award winner) plays his mandolin like a man possessed.


Take their instrumental prowess, add in four-part vocal harmonies

and world-class songwriting and LOOK OUT –

it’s a recipe for powerful, hard-driving bluegrass music.

MMF Presents: Tejon Street Corner thieves

Friday, April 23 |Doors: 6 pm| |7 pm Show|

Stargazers Theatre



Tejon Street Corner Thieves hail from the Colorado Rockies. The outlaw blues and trash-grass pioneers forged their original brand of whiskey roots from the ground up. Honing their craft on the streets, they swiftly gained recognition from the music community with the 2015 Gazette “Best of the Springs” award, 2017 Pikes Peak Art Council “Best In Show”, and back-to-back 2018 and 2019 Colorado Springs Independent “Best Original Band”. 


As an internationally touring act, the band has become notorious for their shenanigans and over the top live performance. TSCT’s consistent show schedule and heart filled showmanship has captured the hearts of show goers everywhere. These guys are wild.








Due to the number of Covid-19 cases in El Paso County,

venues, restaurants, and bars have been ordered to operate

at 75% capacity, which can make it difficult for bands to book

shows and bring crowds in safely! The MMF Board has decided

to continue advertising live music as long as the bands and venues

are safely adhering to the state's Covid-19 regulations.

As always, we will also list all local live-stream shows.
