Yes, in addition to many virtual celebrations and concerts, there are live music events around town this weekend.

Give 5 Productions is putting on a Celebration of Diversity on Friday, July 3, and Saturday, July 4, at the 48,000-square-foot outdoor field west of Stanley Marketplace. The Reminders headline the event, while the Beverly Belles and Honey Taps will offer a vintage patriotic tribute, the Ricardo Peña Trio performs salsa, Latin rock and more, and Ivory Sykes plays an electric violin for an Elijah McClain tribute.

Also on Friday and Saturday, The Denver Dolls, a vocal trio inspired by swing and boogie-woogie of the ’40s, will play at the Crawford Hotel at Union Station.
