With so many concerts coming to Longmont, city
officials might consider renaming the town Songmont, at least until the summer
ends. Whether you’re a fan of old-school music, modern-day tunes, or all that
jazz, chances are you can find something for your listening pleasure. A few of
the options coming down the performance pike include:
Mojomama Rockin the Farm
Mojomama, a blues band that hails from
Longmont, is playing at the LaJoyia Farm on May 14th. This event was such
a success in 2021 that they’re bringing it back again. The farm will serve
snacks and its homemade peppermint iced tea. Space is limited; there are only 75 tickets available and even fewer parking
spots. Bring a picnic dinner, a lawn chair, or a blanket and see what happens
when rural life meets rock and roll.
The Long Run
Eagles Tribute Band
Do you want to take it to the limit? Are you
looking for a peaceful, easy feeling? Then you’re in for a treat on May 14th. The Long Run, an Eagles tribute band that

activities, arts and crafts, a mobile arcade, and duck races.
50th Annual RockyGrass Festival
While technically in Lyons, which is a
twelve-mile jaunt from Longmont, RockyGrass is the epitome of a bluegrass
festival. Nestled between rusty red cliffs and looming trees, it invites

Band, the Becky Buller Band, Uncommon Ritual, the Tray Wellington Band, and
