When: March 17th

Where: Santa Fe Brewing Co.
Cost: $10 student tickets with any student ID, $15 Adult tickets
Why: To bring awareness to the education epidemic manifested in Santa Fe 40% drop out rate within the High Schools.
Locally grown musicians give back to their roots!
La Junta’s front man, Nick Peña, spearheads a benefit concert to support positively influential programs in his hometown of Santa Fe. This concert will benefit the Music and Art programs at Santa Fe High, Capital High, St. Michael’s High, and F.A.C.T. Out of the fifteen participating musicians, nine were born and raised in Santa Fe and were nurtured by at least one of the programs to be benefited. Supported by bands Crazy Fool, and Sapphire, as well as solo artist Mr Tim Reynolds of TR3, we hope to bring awareness of the 40% drop out rate in the high schools in Santa Fe, and the implications of the lack of emphasis on the arts within the high schools.
We believe that creative expression and problem solving is a key element in becoming successful within the academic world in a more enjoyable and relative context to high school youth. Thus, the arts are more then pretty sounds, pictures, and plays. Art is history, culture, business, awareness, science, math, architecture, and pride.
Our hope is that our positive intentions, backed by our humble following of fans, that the Sol of Santa Fe benefit concert on March 17th will be as successful as the programs that made an impact on our lives and continue to be the cornerstone of so many others. Thank you for your kind support!
