The Bosque Chile Festival will still be “Hot After Dark,” as Soul Divine presents an encore performance of their wildly popular Earth, Wind & Fire tribute. Established in 1997, this group of musicians, with credits including James Brown, Lakeside, The Dazz Band, Sparx, and Lorenzo Antonio, and record label deals with Epic and Warner Bros., set the local scene on fire with its exciting brand of Latin and jazz-tinged R&B music and quickly established itself as the hottest ticket in the region. Over the past two decades, Soul Divine provided the soundtrack for a new generation of soul music lovers and set the scene for R&B groups that followed.

Tickets are $22 each with children under 12 free and are available for purchase for the evening concert at www.nhccnm.org or (505) 246-2261.

No pets allowed; service animals only.

No alcoholic beverages may be brought on site; purchased alcoholic beverages must be consumed on site.
