What Happened at the Monument Lake Music Festival?

Organizers have promised a full lineup, six food trucks, and a beer garden. In addition, a Girl Scout troop will perform crafts for children. The event is being sponsored by the Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce, which also organizes the annual Fourth of July celebration in Monument. The chamber hopes to make the event an annual fundraiser. 

Reckless Kelly 

The band Reckless Kelly is a unique combination of high-powered Americana and refined musicianship. The members of the group are Willy Braun, Cody Braun, Jay Nazz, and Joe “Bass” Miller. They have been together for 25 years and have just released two albums. These albums paint a portrait of country music and the culture it draws from. 

The band’s aptly named album Sunset Motel is a sonic triumph, a lyrical statement that is true to form. It was recorded in Austin’s Arlyn Studios and mixed by Jim Scott. The album displays the band’s dedication to detail. The band has not yet achieved wider recognition but is determined to continue fighting for their place in the music industry. 

Femi Kuti 

Femi Kuti at the monument Lake Music Festival is a high energy concert, showcasing her unique talents as an afro-fusion artist. She was joined on stage by female backup singers, and her energy is infectious. She pinged off the stage into the audience, energizing everyone around her. 

The eldest son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti is scheduled to tour the United States in 2022 with his band Positive Force. The concert will be Kuti’s first North American performance since 2005. His 12-piece band, The Positive Force, will perform songs from his career, as well as songs written by his son Made.
