Cottonwood's Main Stage will host another eclectic week of music including rock, folk, Americana, country, and gypsy.

Thursday night will see the growing Music Mafia presented by hosts Christopher Robin and Micki Free.  The weekly event has been steadily growing and features a showcase jam of rock and Americana reminiscent of Nashville's music tradition.  The evening runs 9 p.m. to midnight.

On Friday, July 19, Verde Valley extraordinaires Green Light and The Cat's Vyktrola will showcase at the venue. Green Light has steadily been cultivating a following in Sedona and Cottonwood with their original rock.

Led by Chicky Brooklyn and Tommy Best, Green Light is known for their extended jams featuring the musical virtuosity of lead guitarist J.R. Robusto, and trombone/keyboard player Uncle Marc.  

Green Light continues to wow audiences and grow in popularity with people from all generations that love a good show and tunes they can sing along with and dance to at the same time.

The Cat's Vyktrola is the brainchild of local legend Vyktoria Pratt Keating. The band is known locally for their fresh approach to live performance, preferring freedom on stage to infuse the songs with the energy of the moment, rather than over rehearsing the material.  

The Cat's Vyktrola, led by Vyktoria Pratt Keating and backed by seasoned musicians Dave Rentz on percussion and vocals and Kirk Burnett on banjo and mandolin, have been rocking the local music scene for years with imaginative interpretations of timeless cover songs that cover folk, rock, pop, bluegrass and Celtic cover songs from the 1700s to the 1980s.  

The Cats have a fresh approach to live performance, preferring freedom on stage to infuse the songs with the energy of the moment. 

Each member of the trio is an accomplished musician with the ability to perform complex progressions while allowing for plenty of spontaneity and fun. 

In the Cat's shows, with all lead solos played on banjo, songs by Led Zeppelin, The Who and The Beatles are transformed into a highly original sound with an energetic yet laid back feel. 

Vyktoria's beautiful voice and passionate singing enthrall audiences and the musical virtuosity of her band is unmatched.

The show will begin an hour early at 8 p.m.

On Saturday, a diverse group of acts, led by quickly ascending Phoenix act The Prowling Kind - a five-piece Indie Blues-Rock band, will take the stage.  The band has recently released a concept album based on a young with child on the run and delivers a robust and rocking show led by petite but ferocious front lady, Mickey Pangburn and her Les Paul.  

The band will be joined by Austin Gypsy outfit Vana Mazi.  Vana Mazi blends sounds of East Asian and Eurasian origin with modern sensibility; combining Turkish and Balkan rhythms with playful breakbeat enthusiasm and commonly alternative lyrical means of expression outside English speaking domains.  

Local songwriter Jake Payne opens the set with a solo performance - his first at Main Stage.  The show is free and begins at 9:30 p.m.

Sunday sees the beginning of Main Stage's weekly country event featuring Bill Bassett's Trailblazers.  

The event will run from 4-7 p.m. and promises to deliver the best country event in the Verde Valley on a weekly basis.

Main Stage is located at 1 S Main Street in Cottonwood.  

The venue is open Wednesday - Saturday, 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.  

All events are free to the public.  For more information, please call (928) 202-3460 or visit www.mainstagetheater.com
