Worldly and wild, MaggieJack mixes funky-feeling Latin and African grooves into a unique concoction. Lyrically, the band offers a rootsy environmental message; it's music to make you think as you dance. Led by the boisterous Lisa Maria Maestas, who sings lead and plays a variety of percussion instruments -- including congas, bongos and djembe -- with equal aplomb, the combo has been bringing a fresh voice to the Mile High music scene through its frequent and energetic appearances. On Saturday, July 6, MaggieJack will play the latest of its many headlining gigs at Cricket on the Hill. Get ready to rumba.
