While all our concerts are on hold, AMP Concerts is reaching out to local artists to give them work and give you entertainment in these difficult times. AMP maintains a fund to pay for community projects, which have primarily been school programs and artist residencies. In this time of crisis, we are using those funds to hire local artists and tech crews to create streaming events—and to act as a catalyst for the community to support art as well.
Everyone performing and working on the show is being paid. There will be no audience, just musicians, sound and video people who will follow social distancing guidelines.
These programs may be cancelled if current New Mexico health guidelines become more restrictive.
Known for their exceptional songwriting, unique covers, and pushing the boundaries of traditional bluegrass music, this "rowdygrass" ensemble balances high-energy, boot-scooting music with enchanting, soulful songs that will pluck at your heartstrings.
Formed in 2015, Silver String Band immediately captured the attention of the booming music scene in Albuquerque, NM. After a year of playing the brewery stage circuit, they released their first self-titled studio album in the fall of 2016, which led to notable local and regional growth as they made a name for themselves and embarked on a tri-state tour.
Their second studio album, Keep Running, was released in the spring of 2018 and reflects on the toils of young adulthood, bucolic landscapes, and pays homage to a number of musical styles including bluegrass, grunge, punk, jazz, gospel, and country music. Currently, they are focused on writing new material with plans to record later this year. Notable SSB performances include the 2018 Route 66 Summerfest, the 2017 Wind Rider Mountain Festival, and the 2017/2018 ABQ Folk Festivals.
