Arise Music Festival announces their newest project: Arise Online, premiering on Thursday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m. MST with a concert from the Magic Beans captured at the legendary Colorado Sound Studios in Denver. “During ongoing uncertainty related to the pandemic, we wanted to keep our community alive, supported and relevant,” says Arise producer Luke Comer, “so we are introducing “Online” to create, capture and distribute musical, artistic and other content. We are hoping ARISE Online will be relevant during the pandemic and then live on, afterwards.” Arise has partnered with the legendary Colorado Sound Music Studios to capture audio and video content at the highest quality. “This is not the usual, pandemic production—but much higher quality,” says Comer.

ARISE is thrilled to present one of Colorado’s neo-jam favorites, Magic Beans. With their signature combination of soul, rock and funk, Magic Beans have performed at festivals and venues across the country, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre and their very own Beanstalk Music Festival in Colorado. Their latest album “Off Leash” weaves the dimensions from chosen genres to build a distinct, neo-jam sound, pushing limits both on stage and in studio.

In line with its passion for artistic expression and creative collaboration, ARISE asserts its standing commitment to support musicians, artists and venues, even when circumstances demand a creative approach. With the support of Westword, KGNU, Rocky Mountain Virtual, NoCapShows and other strategic partners, ARISE anticipates a lineup of performances of all kinds to carry us through the pandemic and beyond. Whether online or live, the Arise vision rocks on.
