Emerge from the Pandemic with live music at a beautiful outdoor performance space at Casa Flamenca! The space can hold around 120 people at full capacity. With 3-foot distancing, we are going to sell 80 tickets. This is a great way to get used to going out again with a killer lineup of many of Albuquerque's best artists. Come out and support local music and check out this amazing new community space. Casa Flamenca created this space in the fall while dealing with the devastating impact of the pandemic on their business. A portion of the proceeds from each show will go to help them pay for the cost of building this space (around $10K, so a substantial investment!). If you would like to make additional donations to support them, you'll have an opportunity to do that when you buy your tickets.

PARKING: There is plenty of street parking, but you are also welcome to park at Monica's El Portal across the street. Big thanks to Monica for letting us use their lot after hours!

Cellist Keely Mackey formed CELLOquacious in 2019. CELLOquacious is an artistic and musical concept, of a performer communicating through her cello. Keely states, "When the music comes through me, there are no words, only images of sound." CELLOquacious has three aspirations: to connect with and move people through the musical language of the cello, to collaborate and community build through the arts, and to positively contribute to the larger community. 

Since the age of nine, Keely has been playing cello. At first, strictly a classically trained cellist, Keely began improvising, performing, and recording with indie alternative rock bands in college, and then in the genres of jazz, soul, funk and Kirtan. Classical training and performance pervades. 

For the past five years, Keely has been developing her use of electronic and amplified cello, as well as integrating looping and effects pedals into creating her own original solo pieces, emerging now as CELLOquacious. Sounds of antiquity merge with the future, through her amplified cello, and create "musical soulscapes."

Robb Janov presents a live looping musical experience utilizing a 6-string electric violin. Songs from a variety of music styles are created using a looper pedal and build into a full-band sound. Robb presented a 2012 TEDxABQ Talk and his national award-winning mid-school Rock and Rhythm music program has been featured on the PBS Newshour, KNME Colóres, KUNM and local newspapers and TV newscasts.
