The Hill Stompers, an award winning jazzy street band that formed in 2000, spent last weekend playing music and dancing in the Snowdown Light Parade in Durango, Colo.

It’s Durango’s only nighttime parade where light-bedecked floats create a dazzling delight in Durango’s most spectacular and entertaining procession along the banks of Main Avenue.

The Hill Stompers will next play at the Mardi Gras Pub Crawl Tuesday, Feb. 21, where they will boogie their way through Santa Fe Fat. The Hill Stompers welcome musicians of any level to join their group. Whether you’re just learning a new instrument or you haven’t played in 20 years – there are no auditions and no experience is necessary.

The band rehearses 7-9 p.m. Monday evenings at the United Church.

To schedule the Hill Stompers to play at your next event, call Jeff Favorite at 661-7646 or email
